A thoughtful and compelling case for the power and potential of natural medicine to heal the human body, from bestselling author Dr. Andreas Michalsen
We are living longer than ever before. Average life expectancy is higher today than at any other period in our history. But our prolonged lives have come at a price: a rise in chronic disease. More and more of us are developing chronic conditions like digestive disorders, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, and cancer. These diseases pose a challenge to conventional medicine, which controls symptoms but doesn’t address the underlying cause of chronic illness. But there is a solution: naturopathy.
Naturopathy, or natural medicine, focuses on uncovering the roots of health and resilience. Naturopathy works by using elements found in nature--such as sunlight, water, nourishing foods, medicinal plants and animals--to strengthen our bodies and give ourselves the power to overcome a wide range of illnesses.
After starting his career as a cardiology specialist, Dr. Andreas Michalsen found himself increasingly disappointed with the way that conventional Western medical treatments had no lasting effect or cure. He began exploring other ways of healing, which led him to naturopathy. Now, Dr. Michalsen is a pioneering force in the world of healthcare, spearheading the latest scientific research on natural ways of healing.
In The Nature Cure, Dr. Michalsen shares the potential of nature he discovers every day with his patients. He walks us through the basic principles and scientific mechanisms of naturopathy and provides us with practical, easy-to-follow instructions on how to integrate naturopathic methods into our daily routine.
Thoughtfully written and filled with science and history, fascinating case studies, and practical guidance, this illuminating book has the power to transform your health and change your life.
