Healing Power of Nature

Healing Power of Nature
(Random House)

Naturopathy is strictly scientific, seeing every manifestation of disorder as the result of an understandable cause. It has a mystical aspect but not in the direct application of treatment. Rather, it reveals itself in respect for the way treatment is complimented by the unknowable, immeasureable healing force within all life.

Healing Power of Touch

Healing Power of Touch
The Complete Illustrated Guide to Massage (Harper Collins)

Massage is a very sensitive and sensitizing form of human contact. Its medium is touch, a sense to which we humans are especially responsive. This sensitivity is developed and refined during our infancy from the awareness of being held and caressed. When as adults we receive given massage, the reassuring familiarity of human contact invokes the security of touch we experienced as a child.

A History of Naturopathy

Naturopathy relates to an impulse within us as old as humankind, a fusion of instinct and intuition, native mechanisms that are responsible for our development and wellbeing.

Minimalism in an Overabundant Society

Ozone Layer! Global Warming! Climate Change! Carbon Footprint! The End is Nigh! - sounds familiar?

Moving Being

Unlike most other creatures, our
musculo-skeletal system is relatively dormant for some time after birth. But when our muscles are able to hold our bones upright and the spine assumes a central position, we can articulate - our real life can be said to begin: we have become independent. From then onwards our posture, and the stresses and strains it experiences, offers useful clues about what we are making of life.

Pulling Health Out of The Body

Health can be realized not so much
from chasing after exotic treatments or elixirs, as from accessing what we have within ourselves. Given very basic requirements, the human system is very self-sufficient. Naturopaths recognized generations ago that in our over-civilized world, what we simply require is stimulation.
