Naturopathy II -- with Dr. David Cohen, ND, PhD, MH, CNC


We begin with the simple statement that naturopathy, inarguably the healthiest, and safest approach to treating health conditions by utilizing the body's inherent ability to heal, has never been exceeded or equalled by what is commonly referred to as "conventional medicine." As we learned in Naturopthy I,   naturopathic physicians aid the healing process by incorporating a wide range of alternative methods based on the patient's individual needs, the patient's individual "balance point" of maximum health.

More often than not, we can reasonably expect less pain, less time and effort resolving the issue, less financial cost, less aggravation.

Diet, lifestyle, work, and personal history are all considered when determining a treatment regimen. If you're genuinely tired of paying high medical costs, and sitting in waiting rooms listening to your arteries harden, try the healthier, more effective naturopathic approach. It's been working for thousands of years, and now we have the precision of technologies that enable us to see what needs fixing, ... and without a scalpel invading the human body if it's not absolutely necessary.

It is hoped that the thousands of dollars and hours invested in bringing you so much healthy information will be justified by your making use of these wonderful techniques and tools.
They are created exclusively for human benefit.

For now, we wish you a healthy, happier day and hope you benefit immediately from this page.

What Are The Basics Of Naturopathic Medicine Work?

With naturopathic medicine, disease is seen as a manifestation of the natural causes by which the body heals itself.  For example, fever and inflammation are viewed as the body's way of dealing with an imbalance that is undermining the healthy functioning of the body.  However, if the cause of the imbalance is not removed, the inflammatory responses will continue, either at a lower level of intensity or intermittently.  This can be the origin of chronic disease.  Healing a chronic disease requires the removal of the underlying cause.  This usually culminates in a return of an acute episode, called a "healing crises" or "reaction," a keynote of naturopathic medical theory.  Following this the condition improves.

Although naturopathic physicians emphasize therapeutic choices based on individual interest and experience, as well as the legal parameters of the state in which he or she practices, they maintain a consistent philosophy.  All have been trained in the basic tools of natural therapeutics, and most work with diet and nutrition while specializing in one or more other therapeutic methods.

After identifying which conditions in the patient manifest in illness, the naturopathic physician advises the patient on the methods most appropriate for creating a return to health.  In order to become free of illness, it is often necessary for the patient to make both dietary and lifestyle changes.  Homeopathy or acupuncture are often used to stimulate recovery.  Herbal medicines may be used as tonics and nutritive agents to support and strengthen weakened systems, while specific nutritional agents such as vitamin and mineral supplements and glandular tissue extracts might also be utilized.  Hydrotherapy and various types of physical therapy may be required.  Additionally, it is important that major emotional stresses be eased to allow the digestive system to function in the relaxed environment required for proper digestion.

Finally, underlying many illnesses is a spiritual disharmony.  This may be experienced as a feeling of deep unease or insufficient strength of will necessary to sustain the healing process.  For lasting good health to be established, this disharmony must be overcome.  Naturopathic physicians can play an important role in guiding patients to discover the course of action most appropriate.

Conditions Commonly Benefited by Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine can be applied in any health care situation, but its strongest area is in the treatment of chronic and degenerative disease.  Naturopaths are, for the most part, licensed primary care/general practice family physicians.  For severe, acute traumas such as a serious automobile accident, emergencies of childbirth, or orthopedic problems requiring corrective surgery, naturopathic medicine is not recommended, although it can contribute to such cases, especially in the recovery phase.

In other cases, such as ear infections and common illnesses with fever, the naturopathic physician addresses the associated pain, infection, and fever of the condition, as well as any related concerns of the patient.  How this acute condition might relate to underlying causes, such as diet, life stresses, and occupational hazards, is also addressed.  The physician will then usually prescribe a variety of means to deal with the immediate problem.

In the chronic cases, the procedure is different.  Typically, a thorough case exploration will detail the history and nature of the patient's symptoms and complaints, his or her complete health history, and the patient's lifestyle.  Finally, a physical examination and appropriate laboratory tests are performed.  For naturopathic physicians, understanding the patient as an individual is essential when searching for causative factors, particularly in the areas of the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual.

Never underestimate the power of your moods and feelings, beliefs and attitudes on the body's so-called "autonomic functions." These functions are now known and clearly proven to be subject to determinative influence.

After seeking and determining causative factors, the physician will discuss his or her findings with the patient, and an attempt will be made to tie together and interpret the symptoms.  Symptoms almost uniformly relate to a central problem that has many manifestations.  For example, many symptoms are seen to be related to the effects of toxemia on the subsidiary systems of the body such as the immune system, nervous system or circulatory system.  Others may be due to emotional factors, such as a chronic urinary tract infection when there is a history of sexual abuse.

Finally, dietary factors are determined and appropriate changes are recommended.  Any other perceived causes are addressed with either counseling, exercise, or other methods of treatment.

Naturopathic Medicine - Healing the Person, Not the Disease

Naturopathic medicine avoids focusing on disease symptoms; rather, on the causes of those symptoms.  For example, the body has four major organs that assist in elimination; the lungs, kidneys, bowels, and skin. Because formal medicine has largely ignored the skin as a functioning organ which can be "tapped into" as a resource for healing, not enough progress has been made to date.   Most skin diseases are viewed by naturopathic physicians to be the result of excessive metabolic toxicity in the body, forcing the skin to be used as an extra route of elimination.  The skin excretes both water-soluble and oil-soluble wastes through the sweat and oil glands.  Because the elimination of toxins is irritating to the skin, the result is often various forms of skin-related disorders such as dermatitis and acne.



Naturopathic Doctors
What Is a Naturopathic Doctor Trained to Do?

Naturopathic doctors today, particularly those with advanced equipment at their disposal, can provide complete diagnostic and therapeutic services. In naturopathic medicine, words such as "diagnosis" or "cure" or even "treatment" are to be avoided for two powerful reasons:
  1. Primarily because there are so many quacks and idiots out there parting people from their hard-earned money, and partly for less honorable reasons, the U.S. government, through the FDA, does not want any claims made unless the requisite 234 [and more] million dollars are invested or frittered into the filings necessary for US Government approval. There are both good and bad features to the government's intervention into one of the few areas of life where no one dies or gets sick from the products.


  2. Words such as "diagnosis," "treatment," and "cure" all indicate a lack of understanding of naturopathic medicine. In the simplest terms, naturopathy means using products that occur naturally to return the human system to its normal, and, not concidentally, balanced and healthy state of existence.

  Throughout the use of naturopathic, or natural medicine, a majority of naturopathic physicians have also functioned as family doctors, many of them practicing natural childbirth (usually in the home setting), pediatrics, gynecology, and geriatrics.  Naturopathic physicians make recommendations on lifestyle, diet, and exercise, and utilize a variety of natural and noninvasive healing techniques.

The current scope of treatments naturopathic physicians are trained in include: clinical nutrition; botanical or herbal medicine; homeopathy; acupuncture; hydrotherapy; physical medicine including massage and therapeutic manipulation; counseling and other psychotherapies; and minor surgery.


  • Clinical nutrition Using your daily diet as a tool of therapy serves as the foundation of naturopathic resolution of metabolic toxicity in the body, clinical nutrition is an ever-increasing body of knowledge that supports the use of whole foods and nutritional supplements in the maintenance of health and treatment of disease.

  • Herbal medicine: Plants have been used as medicines, or as the basis of medicines, for more centuries than we can count. Naturopathic physicians are professionally trained herbalists and know both the historical and medicinal uses of plants. With health practitioners like Dr. Cohen in practice, the expertise and technology combined together create a powerful combination for helping you to live longer and live better.

What To Expect During A Visit To A Naturopathic Physician

A typical office visit with a naturopathic doctor takes one hour.  A particularly important function of the naturopathic physician is to share with NON-medically trained people how to live and heal naturally, so the time devoted to discussing and explaining principles of health maintenance, as well as your medical condition, is one of the factors that sets naturopaths apart from conventional physicians, who often seem to be rushing from patient to patient.

The relationship begins with a thorough medical history and interview process designed to view all aspects of your lifestyle.  If needed, the physician will perform standard diagnostic procedures including a physical exam and blood and urine analysis.

Once you establish a good grasp of your health status and conditions, you and your doctor work together to establish a treatment and health-promoting program.

The smartest among us remember that every prescription medicine known to Man has unpleasant, dangerous, or even deadly results. That's why a medical doctor's signature is needed, because it is his or her informed decision that the dangers are outweighed by the need to resolve a supposedly more serious problem.

Some of us believe we've seen more than enough proof that Nature provides us with a huge range of natural, naturopathic items that work faster, better, and, to the dismay of drug companies, at far less cost... than those prescription drugs.

If living longer and better, healthier, happier and more balanced is your informed choice,
you may benefit enormously from the expertise,
and the anti-drug, anti-surgery, anti-profit attitudes of Dr. David Cohen, based in Brooklyn NY.
