Hydrotherapy for Sleeplessness
Hydrotherapy is also effective in treatment of insomnia. Application of hot packs to the spine
before retiring, hot fomentation to the spine, hot foot bath or an alternate hot and cold foot bath
at bedtime are all time-tested methods.
The cold hip bath with the feet in hot water and the prolonged neutral immersion bath (92 to
96º F) at bed time, when one\'s nerves are usually irritable, are also effective measures.
A neutral immersion bath for one hour daily is also helpful in the treatment of depression. This
bath is administered in a bath tub which should be properly fitted with hot and cold water
connections. The patient should lie in the tub after filling it with water a temperature ranging
from 92º to 98º F. The head should be kept cold with a cold compress.
This approach is especially useful in treating depression caused by thyroid dysfunction.
It is difficult to recognise the first symptoms of goitre because they are of a very short duration.
They usually appear as emotional upsets and can pass almost unnoticed. These spells of
emotional upsets gradually increase in duration, when other symptoms also appear. These
include loss of power of concentration, depression and weeping. The patient appears to be
very easily irritated. The approach of a nervous breakdown is often suspended.
The thyroid gland may swell but this has no relation to the severity of the ailment because
many serious cases have practically no visible swelling. There is always a rapid though regular
heart beat and any undue excitement increases this to a quick pulsation which may even be
conveyed to the thyroid gland. There is, in most cases, a tremor of the hands and a feeling of
extreme tiredness, together with a lack of power to make any real muscular effort. The eyes
may incline to protrude although this does not appear in all patients.
A most alarming symptoms of goitre is the loss of weight which no treatment seems to check,
and this can persist till the patient feels extremely weak. All the symptoms appear very
gradually and that is why so many women do not complain until the trouble has reached
serious proportions.

Naturopathy for beginners [ 15-08-2013 , 02:08:00 ]

What is Naturopathy?
 
Naturopathy is a system of medicine that focuses on Natural remedies and body’s vital ability to heal and maintain itself. Treatments based on 5 elements of nature i.e. Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Space, aim to support and aid the body to heal itself. At the core of the Naturopathy is lifestyle medicine.
 
Philosophy
 
Naturopathy is a healing art based on holistic principles of the healing power of nature. This includes treating the underlying cause within the body to achieve optimal health that may have been compromised by lifestyle, genetic predisposition or dietary imbalances. Within this belief, naturopathy aims to restore vitality through supporting and stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms.
 
Modalities
 
Herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicine known to the society. The practitioner makes use of extracts and tinctures derived exclusively from plants and other natural sources. Herbal preparations can balance the whole body unlike pharmaceuticals, which only work on one specific system. Modern herbal medicine is safe and is constantly backed up by updated research.
 
Nutrition is the treatment of disorders using food as medicine. With the fast paced stressful lifestyle of our society, many of us are eating highly refined foods. This does not supply us with the nutrients we need to maintain good health. The naturopathic nutritionist uses fresh whole foods and supplements to re-establish an optimum nutritional status required for good health.
 
Hydrotherapy uses the water in different forms like baths, sprays, packs, ice, steam etc at various temperatures to get desired effect on the body. Main principle is to improve blood circulation in the affected area and thus enhancing the body’s self healing mechanism.
 
Other elements of nature are used in different forms like mud baths, mud packs, sun bath, dry heat, wet heat etc to get desired effect on the body. All these treatments play a supporting role in the healing mechanism of the body.
• Accupressure & Refloxology is based on the principle of balancing energy flow in the body and works on principles of Chinese medicine of balancing ying & yang. Most of the Nature cure centers use it as complementary treatment.
 
Exercise is used frequently as complementary treatment in musculo-skeletal conditions and for treating various pain and aches. Many Naturopathy centers offer physiotherapy treatments along with other modalities. Walking as well as supported passive exercises are also used in Naturopathy.
 
Yoga and Meditation are ancient Indian sciences mainly advocated these days for balancing the mind. Both have been scientifically proven to achieve balance between the sympathetic and para-sympathetic nervous system thus bringing balance to the mind. While many people wrongly compare Yoga to exercise, it has a great advantage over exercise in achieving a balance in our nervous system.
 
Conditions treated
Naturopaths are trained in a variety of modalities and therefore able to treat a broad spectrum of illnesses or disease states that are either acute or chronic like:
• vital organ dysfunction esp heart and kidneys
