Simple Healing Soup

11 Dec 2016

This is a recipe for simple healing soup. I recommend this recipe for people who are trying to heal and do not know what to eat. This simple diet is nourishing and will provide significant nutrition while being easy to digest. Simple healing soup will help reduce or eliminate the “toxemia” which occurs for digestive disturbances and which drives inflammation in the body. This soup can be varied in many ways, as the recipe demonstrates. 2-4 quarts of pure water. Do not use filtered or bottled water if the filter is a carbon filter, as most carbon filters are made today from coconut husk charcoal and this will put elements into.

Interstitial Cystitis

11 Dec 2016

Interstitial Cystitis is a difficult and miserable problem, mostly suffered by women. It is like a bladder infection in sensation, but there is no infection, and the pain is constant. There is no good treatment conventionally, which is partly why it is difficult. I am pleased that we have been able to cure most of the people who have come to us with this problem. By most, I mean over 90%. The problem involves pain in the bladder area, sometimes including vulvadynia or pain elsewhere in the perineum. It will vary somewhat in symptoms, but usually presents as constant pain in the bladder region, maybe worse from sitting, though in.

Interstitial Cystitis

21 Jun 2016

“Interstitial Cystitis” is defined as a “noninfectious bladder inflammation that causes pain, urinary frequency and urgency with incontinence.” (Merck Manual)  It is like a bladder infection that never stops, and that has no good conventional treatment.   The Merck Manual article goes on to say that  “cure is rare”.  But cure is common in our clinic.  Cure, meaning, no further pain or problem.  I will write a bit here how we accomplish cure for this difficult problem. Like many chronic inflammatory problems, there is a dietary problem that underlies most of this.  The explanation is simple.  If one consistently eats a food that irritates one’s body, the irritation becomes chronic..

The Healing Power of Nature

The Healing Power of Nature

The healing power of nature is the inherent self-organizing and healing process of living systems which establishes, maintains and restores health. Naturopathic medicine recognizes this healing process to be ordered and intelligent. It is the naturopathic physician’s role to support, facilitate and augment this healing process by identifying and removing obstacles to health and removing obstacles to health and recovery, and by supporting the creation of a healthy internal and external environment. In the western medical system, the doctor’s knowledge and wisdom are intended to supersede the disease process. The naturopathic physician does not do battle with a disease entity. Instead, we rely upon the healing wisdom, vital energies and.

First, Do No Harm

29 Aug 2012
First, Do No Harm

Naturopathic physicians follow three precepts to avoid harming the patient: Naturopathic physicians utilize naturopathic methods and medicinal substances. These practices minimize the risk of harmful effects. We also apply the least possible force or intervention necessary to diagnose illness and restore health. Whenever possible, the suppression of symptoms is avoided, as suppression generally interferes with the healing process. Naturopathic physicians respect and work with the vis medicatrix naturae in diagnosis, treatment and counseling. If this self -healing process is not respected, the patient may be harmed. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please Contact Dr. Zeff of Salmon Creek Clinic. or call us at 360-823-8121.

Prevention

29 Aug 2012
Prevention

Naturopathic medical colleges emphasize the study of health as well as disease. The prevention of disease and the attainment of optimal health in patients are primary objectives of naturopathic medicine. In practice, these objectives are accomplished through education and the promotion of healthy ways of living. Naturopathic physicians assess risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and make appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness. Naturopathic medicine asserts that one cannot be healthy in an unhealthy environment and is committed to the creation of a world in which humanity may thrive. Suppression vs. Solution The basis of modern medicine, with all of its miracles, is suppression. Drugs suppress and control the.

Treat the Whole Person

Treat the Whole Person

As the cause of illness is removed, the natural tendency of the body is to improve function. The human being is not simply a physical entity. We have minds, we think. The human beings have emotions, we feel and we translate these feelings into meaning. Humans are spiritual beings. “The naturopathic physician seeks to treat the causes of disease, rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.” Naturopathic physicians treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social and other factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual development. Remember, fever, inflammation, and even infection are.
