I’m sure you have heard the saying ‘wellness or healing begins from within”, but what does that exactly mean? This phrase common among naturopathic doctors is the core emphasis of natural medicine. That is creating an ideal healthy environment so that our bodies can fight and avoid disease without relying on external factors such as surgery or pharmaceutical drugs. This basis that our bodies are capable of healing in the right conditions dates back tens of thousands of years before mainstream medical treatments became available many doctors would look to natural remedies using ingredients from nature. Take Tumeric for example, a very powerful and undervalued spice. The main ingredient curcumin is a very strong anti-inflammatory substance that can help with a variety of ailments. This can be an alternative to over the counter ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medication.
