Essay Topic:

Naturopathy has existed for more than one hundred years. Naturopathic care continues to be as effective today for acute and chronic conditions because it is based on timeless principles. Naturopathy is an art informed by science with a deep connection to nature. Elders of the profession have taught, practiced and written about how the ‘laws of nature’ and the ‘Healing Power of Nature – The Vis Medicatrix Naturae’ affects the body, mind and spirit. Henry Lindlahr (1862 – 1924) was one of these naturopathic elders who wrote a cornerstone text for the profession.

The 3 sections below must be included in your essay.

1. Describe how the traditional philosophy of naturopathy continues to be as relevant today as when it was written and described by Lindlahr in his book “Nature Cure’. The following four chapters from Nature Cure must be included as the basis of your discussion: - Catechism of Nature Cure – Chapter II - The Unity of Disease and Treatment – Chapter IV - The Laws of Cure – Chapter VI - Suppression vs Elimination – Chapter VII

2. Include a case study where the treatment plan has incorporated the naturopathic philosophy based on the four Nature Cure chapters.

3. Describe in a separate paragraph what is unique about naturopathic philosophy – based on the four chapters from Nature Cure and how a naturopathic approach is different from that of mainstream medicine, integrated medicine and functional medicine.
