Naturopathic Medicine, A Vision Of Vibrant Health, For You and Your World!

“Even though naturopathic principles are as old as history, they are as new as tomorrow because nature and truth never change. Any system that cured people years ago will help people today, and we can now scientifically validate and explain the clinical success of these approaches.”

~Dr Arno R. Koegler, Canadian naturopath (1898-1991) 

As I am writing to you today, I am grateful for the wondrous Wisdom of Nature in which lies the mysterious possibility for a healthy and thriving human experience on earth. In the context of Nature, we are the true children of the Earth, as we are part of her fabric and depend on her for our own subsistence. What we do to the earth, we are inextricably doing to ourselves. If the earth is so poisoned that it is hard to nurture and sustain healthy life among all her species including us human beings,  it is no longer an individual, but a global issue. Coming together to understand the afflictions and challenges of our time can be profoundly empowering and liberating. I invite you to keep an open mind to what I am going to share with you today. My sincere desire is for you to see that our experience of health is intimately related to “what we think”, individually and collectively, and to “what we eat”, our food, water and air,  all of which are intimately related to the quality of the environment in which we live. The statistics are out… in Canada about 2 in 5 people will develop cancer in their life time, and 1 in 3 will lose their lives to it. Auto-immune disorders have increased from 1/10,000 at the beginning of the 20th century to 1/5 now. Alzheimer disease is being predicted to double within the next 10 years, and the prevalence of autism among children has jumped from 1/2,000 to 1/68 from 1980 to 2012.

After more than a century of chemical and fuel industrialization, why are we still using and looking for expensive toxic agricultural methods and toxic physical cures that can only be palliative, rather than curative and sustainable, while supporting an industry that is polluting and poisoning us. We need to start listening to our larger body… the Earth and its inhabitants. 

Listening to our bodies, we need to start looking at the root causes of our all our afflictions.

If we are part of the problem, we are also part of the solution. I invite you to nurture a vision for our loved ones and families, for the whole collective, globally, to protect the living world in which we live, and for the next seven generations. By taking responsibility, implementing strategies toward health, we can start right here, right now, with each one of us. This way we can increase our awareness and walk the talk, by using preventative and wholistic medicines, by consuming consciously, and by walking the planet harmlessly.

Naturopathic medicine, and the infinite natural paths along the journey are more than a medical system, but an art of living where there is harmony with the law of nature, the self, the others and the surrounding world. Its seven principles are aligned with the vision that we need for our world:

1. Identify and treat the cause. 2. First Do No Harm. 3. Treat the whole person. 4. Doctor as teacher.  5. Emphasize prevention. 6. Support the healing power of the body and nature. 7. Physician heal thyself.

“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world.”

~ Joel A Barker

They say the truth comes from the mouth of the children. We need to listen. Here is Severn Cullis-Suzuki.

While attending Lord Tennyson Elementary School in French Immersion, at age 9, she founded the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO), a group of children dedicated to learning and teaching other youngsters about environmental issues.In 1992, at age 12, Cullis-Suzuki raised money with members of ECO, to attend the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.

Her speech was given at a U.N. assembly in Brazil:
