Throughout history, human beings have used a large number of natural resources to heal, balance and restore the health of people and even animals.
Naturopathy encompasses therapeutic practices with the aim of preserving health, preventing and treating disease or imbalance, whether physical, emotional and / or energetic.
Naturopathy with a holistic view of the human being, is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a health area that works on the prevention, treatment and promotion of optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods to promote the act-healing process (vix medicatrix naturae).
The WHO recommends to the member states principles of Naturopathy:
- First, do no harm (primun non nocere)
- Act in cooperation with the healing power of alt = "nature
- Treat the whole person who uses an individualized treatment
- Teach the principles of healthy living and preventive health care
In addition, WHO recommends that member states formulate and implement national policies on traditional, complementary and natural medicines to support their appropriate use to the large volume of users that increases year after year.
In the same way we find two opposite poles in the world population, areas of aging of the population as in Europe, highlighting Spain and other areas where the high birth rate is causing the states do not have sufficient resources to be able to the health of the country Take charge of your citizens.
For this reason, in many countries it is returning to the natural medicine to have a complement that helps to prevent some diseases.This situation means that each time we find in the pharmacies and parapharmacies the phytotherapy, orthomolecular supplementation.
Citizens are becoming increasingly aware of the need for a healthier life for those who are demanding to know on a personal level new ways to recover a healthier kitchen.
