A classic naturopath specializes in wellness. We teach client how apply natural lifestyle approaches that can act to facilitate the body’s healing and health building potential. The classical naturopath does not undertake to diagnose or treat disease but recognizes that the majority of sub-health conditions are cumulative. Also the underlying cause of disease is improper diet, unhealthy habits, and environmental factors that cause biological imbalances leading to a weakening of the body’s defenses and subsequently, breakdowns in health. Dr Ferrira at health naturally is a Naturopathic Doctor located in Fall River, MA.

The terms given by medical doctors to disease are only symptoms of a greater underlying problem. Disease is nothing more than a manifestation of the body attempting to correct imbalances. Many imbalances are caused by faulty nutritional patterns, improper rest, stress management and other lifestyles considerations which over time result in a weakening of the body. By the time disease appears, it is very late in the game.

Our body tells us early on when there is a problem and we can either respond to this message or try to suppress the symptoms that the body uses to tell us there is a problem. Unless the underlying problem is corrected, eventually the symptoms will no longer be helped by drugs and one will have to take stronger and stronger drugs to quiet the body’s message. If the underlying problem has not been addressed, the body will begin to break down structurally. At this time modern medicine is finally capable of diagnosing that something is wrong and offer interventions to repair the structure, but still, most medical doctors fail to address the underlying problem.

Naturopathy concentrates on identifying destructive aspects in lifestyles that lead to imbalances. Before symptoms manifest and long before diagnosis can be rendered, these destructive aspects of our lifestyle can be identified and corrected. Once corrected, the body automatically corrects itself. Diagnosing disease and illness is totally unnecessary to correcting the underlying problems that result in disease and illness. A true healer is not overly concerned naming diseases, but rather on identifying those underlying factors that if not addressed result in the manifestation of illness and disease. Naturopathy addresses the root cause(s). These factors can be identified and corrected long before it is even possible to many, any diagnosis. Even after diagnosis is made, the same concepts of healing used by classical naturopaths are equally effective because once balance is restored, the body automatically heals itself.
