Healing Powers Of Nature

Cooperate With The Healing Powers Of Nature

This quote below from Dr. Christiane Northrup really speaks to the Naturopathic Doctor’s Oath:
“to cooperate with the healing powers of nature”.
All too often we quickly go to grab painkillers or other medications to numb our symptoms.
Try this instead…even if it just for a few moments….
-Suggestions from our Mississauga Naturopathic Doctor Kirsten Almon
“Your task isn’t to kill the messanger of your illness by ignoring it, complaining about it, or simply suppressing your symptoms.  Your task is to examine your life with compassion and honesty; and identify the places that are crying out for love, acceptance, harmony, and fulfillment.”

You decide if you will support or numb nature in your life

Healing Power of Nature

The Healing Power of Nature

I have had a cold for the past week—vitamins, fish oil and herbs such as hyssop, licorice and elderberry have been my friends as I was supporting the healing power of nature.

But last night the cold took a turn for the worst–I developed a wet cough and ear infection. I don’t remember ever having ear infections as a child. The pain was exquisite, I couldn’t sleep!

Desperate, I took an advil to help the pain–it did nothing! Then, my husband and Naturopathic Doctor, Doug Andrews suggested I do warming socks (this is a type of hydrotherapy using cold water on cotton socks then wool dry socks over top). Within minutes, the pain and throbbing sensation in my ear disappeared and I floated into a deep sleep.

This morning I am feeling much better, though I am still coughing and have some sinus congestion. I just got adjusted my one of our fantastic Chiropractors. The adjustment is helping drain my sinus and I feel even more relief as nature continued to work its wonders.

This whole experience has reminded me again how amazing our nature is at healing when the body is given the right support!

In health,
