Naturopathy – Trusting the Strength of Nature (From the archives of Natural Therapies Research Centre)

Over the centuries, ancient secrets of healing and various beliefs in treatment were practiced by great minds from China, Europe, America and almost the rest of the world followed suit with their own brand of practice. This was how Natural Medicine started about 200 years back, yet its origin had been used 5000 years ago. However, as the greater technology have been introduced to us and processed foods were popularized through modern advertisements. That in turn contributed to the toxins spreading around us and caused many diseases including cancer, fibromyalgia and other chronic and neurological disorders.
