Paranemisprosessi on seuraavan kirjani aihe ja alustava työnimi. Koska saan aiheesta aina jonkin verran kysymyksiä, kokoan tämänhetkiset ajatukset tähän yhteen paikkaan, jotta niihin on helppoa linkata kun aiheesta keskustellaan.
Ennen kuin ehdin kunnolla kirjoittamaan suomenkielisiä ohjeita ja kuvaamaan videoita, tästä saa jo ensiapua aiheeseen englannin kielellä:

Sami Sundvikilla on oivallinen video siitä, mikä meitä ihan oikeasti sairastuttaa, ja miten sen kaiken voi nykyään varsin helposti päivittää parempaan:
SuSukirja edustaa pitkälti luontais- ja vaihtoehtoterveyden ajatusmaailmaa. Naturopatiaa, mitä noita nimikkeitä nyt on. Natural and Alternative Health. Ikiaikaiset kansanlääkintähyvinvointiviisausperinteet, kuten Ayurveda tai vaikka kalevalainen jäsenkorjaus. Tässä lainauksia aiheesta:
Naturopathic philosophies: The philosophies of “vitalism” and “holism” are core to Naturopathic practice globally.
Naturopathic principles: There is global consensus on the naturopathic principles within the profession. The guiding principles of naturopathic practice includes:
➢ The Healing Power of Nature (vis medicatrix naturae)
➢ Treat the Whole Person (tolle totum)
➢ Treat the Cause (tolle causam)
➢ First, Do No Harm (primum non nocere)
➢ Naturopathic Doctor as Teacher (docere)
➢ Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
The roots of Naturopathy go back thousands of years, relying on the healing wisdom of many cultures, including Indian (Ayurveda), Chinese (Taoist), Greek (Corpus Hippocraticum), Arabic, and European Egyptians (Monastic). In these early civilizations people lived in a harmonious relationship with their surroundings and the understanding of disease was accomplished by observing nature and how it interplayed with human life.
Vitalism is called by many different names, including life force, breath, chi, qi, ki, prana, and mana, depending upon the particular culture or tradition. Vitalism is also associated with concepts of personal essence, spirit or soul.
The physician must assess the environment within which the patient lived and incorporate these factors into any diagnosis or treatment; before patients are assessed, first assess their environs.
1. Naturopathic physicians utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful effects, and apply the least possible force or intervention necessary to diagnose illness and restore health.
2. Whenever possible, the suppression of symptoms is avoided as suppression generally interferes with the healing process.
3. Naturopathic physicians respect and work with the The Healing Power of Nature in diagnosis, treatment and counselling, for if this self-healing process is not respected the patient may be harmed.”
“Life is governed by a self-regulating and self-healing intelligence; its function is to assimilate healthy material into organism and defend it against invasions from outside. Seated in the stomach; likened to fire.”
When the root cause of the symptoms and the obstacles to cure are identified, and addressed the body will often be able to initiate the healing process on its own. With lifestyle changes, the use of natural therapies, such as herbs, foods, water, fasting and tissue manipulation, The Healing Power of Nature, or the healing power of the body, is supported.
Examples of theThe Healing Power of Nature:
▪ you cut a finger and wound automatically starts to heal;
▪ fever is a natural response to a pathogen, flu or virus;
▪ vomiting or diarrhea are the body’s way of responding to food poisoning;
▪ fractures, when aligned, heal often on their own; and
▪ after major surgeries or treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation, the body will initiate healing.
Naturopaths seek to harness the organism’s own natural healing energies, by applying therapies that are in harmony with nature and in harmony with the needs of the patient. While this is the ideal, it is acknowledged that, at times, naturopaths need to override the natural processes to preserve health, as in surgery, or severe infection, where methods that are directly contrary to the natural processes are applied.
Naturopaths / naturopathic doctors apply The Healing Power of Nature by:
▪ Treating the patient; not the disease;
▪ Removing obstacles to healing by identifying and treating the cause of disease;
▪ Decreasing the toxic load to allow the innate healing ability to come through;
▪ Directing the vital force to stimulate the body’s own defences and healing ability; and
▪ Decreasing a person’s susceptibility to disease.
Thomas Edison (1847-1931) wrote,
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
