Philosophy of Natural Therapeutics

How do we heal? Do we all heal in the same manner? Why are so many human beings out of synch with nature? What role do micro organisms play in our health and healing? Can you trust nature to heal?

IN ORDER TO HEAL WITH NATURE it is essential to have a philosophical understanding of how her healing process works.

Samuel Hahnemann 1733-1843 : “Like Cures Like.”

Henry Lindlahr 1853-1925: “All process of healing are expressed through the acute healing mechanism or all healing takes the course of the Acute Crisis.”

Edward Bach 1886-1936: “ Like Repels Like.”

Robert Stevens 1950-present: “Like Repels Like through the acute healing mechanism (acute crisis or acute healing opportunity).”

The law of nature determines how healing takes place. This law has been observed throughout history. Dr. Lindlahr has written about this natural law in his book The Philosophy of Natural Therapeutics Vol. 1. The law is very simple: healing takes place through the acute healing crisis. What does this mean? It is very simple: you get worse as you get better. This is known in Natural Therapeutics, Naturopathy, Nature Cure as the acute healing crisis. In Homeopathy this is known as aggravation. They are one and the same process. The same process is seen in many forms of bodywork.

All systems of natural healing work according to the same natural law. This is not a law designed by the minds of human beings. This is a law designed and put into action by Nature Herself through the wisdom of the Life Current. All sentient beings are animated through this Current of Life Consciousness. There is but one Life Current and there is but one law of healing.

This understanding is presented in the lecture series Philosophy of Natural Therapeutics/Nature Cure.

In addition there will be practical demonstrations of simple Nature Cure techniques designed to assist Nature in her healing journeys. Natural Therapeutics is the combination of Nature Cure and Homeopathy. This definition also holds true for Naturopathy. Hence, it is essential to have a basic understanding of the philosophy of homeopathy and some practical knowledge of homeopathic medicines to practice Natural Therapeutics (Naturopathy).

The oldest form of medicine is Nature Cure. The oldest modality of Nature Cure is touch. Touch is strong medicine. Dr. Stone advanced the practice of touch or hand medicine considerably by his development of Polarity Therapy. The next advancement is taking place currently with the development of Core Synchronism. As Polarity Therapist Phil Lontz says, “Core Synchronism represents the most significant advancement in bodywork since Dr. Stone’s Polarity Therapy.” Reflexology, Reflex Polarity and Stretching Techniques are essential tools for any competent bodyworker.

For natural healing modalities to be effective they must be able to resonate with the unconsciousness. The release of the unconscious trauma allows healing. It is the suppression of the unconscious trauma that represents the soil of pathology. Core Radionics, Homeopathy, Color, Flower Medicine and Medicinal Grade Essential Oils are effective tools for opening the door to unconscious trauma. Energy must flow for health. The unconsciousness does not have an infinite storage capacity. The trauma stored in the unconsciousness must be released periodically. Wholistic bodywork systems based on an accurate model of a human being, core radionics, homeopathy, flower medicine, color, essential oils all represent modalities that have the potential to unlock the doors of the unconsciousness. Opening this door allows healing to take place.
