Natural Medicine

Naturopathy dates back to the "Father of Medicine" himself - Hippocrates of Ancient Greece. The nutritionist, physician and surgeon laid out 10 rules around 400 B.C., which have largely been ignored by the medical professionals to this time.

Hippocrates 10 Commandments

  1. The natural way is the only way
  2. Treat the cause of an illness, not the symptom. Note: Modern synthetic drugs just mask the illness, never deal with the origin.
  3. Look to the spine for illness
  4. Food is medicine and medicine is food
  5. Most illness can be prevented with a natural, healthy diet. Note: Most foods Americans consume are processed, refined overcooked, denatured, chemicalized and grown in mineral depleted soil.
  6. A healthy colon is essential
  7. Do not administer anything dangerous or harmful. the FDA admits that dangerous drugs kill 50,000 to 350,000 people per year.
  8. Do no harm to your patients! Note: An average of 195,000 people in the United States die due to potentially preventable medical errors in each of the years 2000, 2001, and 2002, according to a 2004 study of 37 million patient records released by HealthGrades, the healthcare quality company.
  9. Do not perform surgery for monetary gain. Note: The United States government reports that 75% of surgeries in this country are unnecessary.
  10. The word PROTEIN means "Most Important". Note: Hippocrates named protein as the most essential food we should consume, as the greatest percentage of our bodies is comprised of it. Carbohydrates are secondary.
