At the Naturopathic Healing Arts Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma we consider optimal health to be more than the absence of physical symptoms. Optimal health is not just a good blood picture, clear chest X-ray and no complaints. It includes an abundance of energy throughout the day, and an optimistic outlook with a continual sense of awe and respect for the beauty and complexity of life. It includes having a sense of purpose with an enacted plan for realizing your goals and the experience of enriching relationships with friends and family.
True health is gained and maintained as a daily process. It is not merely a goal to achieve someday, rather it is an experience to have and nurture each and every day of our lives. One doorway to your own optimum health is available at the
Naturopathic Healing Arts Center here in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Health involves regularly re-examining our lives on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual basis, reviewing our experiences and deciding what we need and want. In this review we determine what we wish to experience and how we might facilitate changes that bring about the desired results. Most of us have never done this on a conscious and/or regular basis. In Naturopathy, (the practice of natural healing) we help you to examine and discover what is occurring in all aspects of your life that may have an influence on your health. We help you discover and determine what your goals and priorities are, and empower you through education, treatment, and self-management.
WHAT IS NATUROPATHY?
Naturopathy can be defined as the art of healthful living and healing. This can include, but is not limited to the utilization of pure water, air, light and whole foods, fasting, prayer, meditation, manipulation of the bodily tissues, stress management techniques, internal and external bathing, body fluid evaluation, nutritional evaluation, detoxification therapies, vitamins, minerals, rest, herbs, exercise, and other non-surgical and non-drug therapies.
Naturopathy is based upon life-style education and self-management of the individual. This is the true preventative medicine, as it deals with preventing the causes of disease, thus reducing the cost of health care dramatically, while increasing your quality and length of life.
Naturopathic treatment focuses upon the regeneration of your health instead of fighting disease. It believes a properly functioning body is critical to fight off or prevent any disease condition. Naturopathy treats people as humans not disease conditions.
Naturopathy can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine or entirely on its own to complete your health picture. Many areas of health respond as well or better to Naturopathy without the side effects of traditional medications or surgery. The face of healing is changing and each branch of medicine has its appropriate place to serve you and your needs. We will work with your other health care professionals to complete your health picture.
