We live in the age of technology. When we want to learn something we can search for an article on Google, watch a video tutorial on YouTube, order a book on Amazon, or ask for advice from hundreds of friends on Facebook. With so much access to information, people sometimes question why they would need to see a Naturopath. However while natural remedies may be easy to look up, achieving great health is more complicated than a Google search. If you want to improve your health, here are 5 reasons why you NEED a naturopath.
5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED A NATUROPATH
TO NAVIGATE THE INFORMATION
Look up natural remedies online and there will be over 15 million Google search results, 800 thousand YouTube videos, and 7 thousand books on Amazon… with more articles, videos, and books being created everyday. The sheer amount of information out there is overwhelming.
Now factor in trying to learn the nuances of natural health while continuing to advance your career, participate in hobbies, take care of your family, and stay up to date with current events and pop culture. It’s not surprising that the average person who starts researching natural health online will spend more time reading about it than actually trying it. That’s because overwhelmed people typically get stuck before they make progress.
A naturopath has done the hard work for you. They’ve dedicated their career to learning the art and science of natural health techniques and are required to continue their education each year. Naturopaths help navigate you through the ocean of information so you can focus on what’s important.
TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY
Choosing a random health tip online and then seeing if it works for you requires a lot of trial and error. Lots of trial and error costs you lots of time and money, and you still might not find something that works for you.
A naturopath, on the other hand, uses testing methods to determine your body chemistry and pinpoint your specific vitamin & mineral deficiencies. This reduces the amount of trial and error a person has to undergo before they start seeing results. Make a small investment in a naturopath now and you will save lots of time and money in the future.
TO SEE FASTER RESULTS
Your body is like a garden. When a garden is full of weeds, putting fertilizer on it will only grow more weeds. A skilled gardener knows he will need to remove the weeds and improve the quality of the soil before he can expect to grow beautiful flowers. Your body is the same.
If your body is incapable of efficiently absorbing nutrients and releasing toxins, then natural remedies won’t be as effective. A naturopath can help you get your body into balance so that is operating at an optimal level. This will increase the effectiveness of your efforts and speed up your results.
TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE
In the age of technology we live in, it is easier than ever to get distracted and lose sight of your goals. One might plan to go for a walk around the neighborhood, but Facebook ends up taking that time instead. Achieving success with natural health doesn’t require that someone be perfect, but it does require that they are consistent. A naturopath helps hold you accountable and keeps you on track to reaching your goals.
BECAUSE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT
Iatrogenic death is a term that many people are unfamiliar with. It means death induced by medical treatments including drug reactions, surgeries, and diagnostic procedures. Shockingly, iatrogenic death is considered the third leading cause of death by many sources. Most people fail to consider the risks they take when using conventional medical treatments.
In addition to being dangerous, prescription drugs don’t address the root cause of a person’s health concerns. Instead they merely mask the symptoms. Over time the body grows tolerant to the drug, it loses its effectiveness, and the original problem still remains.
