About Nature Cure Foundation
Nature Cures Us foundation is a naturopathic organization with the vision to heal humanity. We care for people and we want to see that everyone lives a healthy and vibrant life.
We do this mainly by education. Information is power and knowledge is a weapon. We believe by getting the right message out there, people will be more enlightened about their health and know-how to bring their bodies back to sync with nature.
We follow many Principles of Naturopathy taught by Hippocrates in doing our work. Some of the principles guiding us are:
This is the first principle of naturopathy. We are to treat and heal without causing harm or more complications in the body. We are to use substances or methods that won’t give adverse side effects.
We make conscious and deliberate efforts not to manage or suppress symptoms because this can harm the body in the long run.
In the second century, the yellow emperor of China said “A doctor who treats a disease after it has happened is a mediocre doctor … A doctor who treats a disease before it happens is a superior doctor”.
One of the principles of naturopathy is that doctors are teachers. We act more like teachers and we have healed many by just teaching.
The Latin root word for “doctors” itself is “docere” and it means “to teach”. We are more of educational health facilitators. We take delight in educating, empowering, and motivating people to take personal responsibility for their health.
Thomas Edison also predicted this in his famous quote that says “the doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest patients in the maintenance of the human frame in diet and in the prevention of diseases”.
This is what we do, we believe it is better to teach than to treat.
The body has the ability to heal itself in every situation. Hence, what we do is to educate our patients on how to support the body in this healing process and eating the right kind of foods.
We work as a team with our patients to know the root cause of the problem and we look for non-invasive and natural ways to remedy the condition and heal all aspects of their lives.
In natural healing, we don’t suppress symptoms, we treat the person as a whole. The whole body has to be healthy and in this state, one part of the body cannot fall sick nor have problems.
If a part of the body is sick, then that means the whole body is sick. “The part can never be well until the whole is well”, it was Socrates, the father of western philosophy who said this.
Patients are the ones who need treatment and not the disease or symptoms. We try to know and treat the unique symptoms that define the patient instead of common symptoms defining the disease.
Like we’ve rightly said above, we don’t suppress or manage symptoms, we look for the root cause and handle it. Once the root cause is handled, all other symptoms and problems will vanish.
However, if only the symptoms are managed or suppressed, it will lead to degenerative health conditions. We don’t encourage this futile move, so we look for the root cause and treat it.
This is our main belief and we are interested even in people who seem healthy. We tell them how to live healthily and maintain their good health so that they can pass on good and healthy genes on to their children.
The best ways to prevent diseases is by healthy living, knowing the right foods to eat and the right way to take them. You take personal responsibility for your health by engaging in healthy nutrition, living a healthy lifestyle, and having a healthy attitude.
These are the principles guiding us and our main aim is to help people live healthy lives and be free from degenerative diseases.
