Acupuncture is a therapeutic practice of alternative medicine, which consists of inserting small needles in specific areas of the human body, with the ultimate goal of promoting the health and well-being of the person undergoing treatment.
In other words, acupuncture involves inserting special needles into the body’s surface in order to bring benefits to the body.
In the human body there is a system of channels, called meridians, through which a fundamental energy for life flows. This energy is called “life force” or Qi
Therefore, the presence of pain in a particular part of the body or a particular ailment can be traced back to an underlying obstruction of specific meridians, preventing the normal flow of life force.
In other words, certain problems that the human being can develop derive from an alteration of the Qi flow, along the meridian network.
The practice of acupuncture is proposed as a method capable of releasing blocked meridians, thus restoring the normal flow of Qi within the human body.
Acupuncture works primarily on the emotions, often sources of energy blockages.
In Naturopathy, natural resources and agents will be used for the sole purpose of increasing the health status of people, strengthening the immune system,
Toxemia (presence of toxic substances in the blood) is eliminated from the body, although natural and simple techniques are also used for this, especially in relation to food, herbology, with Bach flowers, Ayurveda, essential oils, Homeopathy, and even resorting to manual techniques such as acupuncture, ear acupuncture, etc., yes, always with a different approach.
In short, the Naturopathic Method does not focus from the perspective of the disease, the goal of a Naturopath is the education and promotion of health, instead from the perspective of Natural Medicine, his goal is to prevent and cure the disease with treatments natural.
The Naturopath is not a doctor, does not make a nosological diagnosis, does not cure diseases, but helps the patient to follow the path of restoring health, allows him to find in himself the mental and physical energy to fight disease, and can help those who use it to choose the natural treatment method (or conventional, in some cases) that best suits their problem. In fact, naturopathy does not act as a substitute for allopathic medicine (Western classical medicine), but as a complementary tool. The naturopath could also be called a “health advisor”.
The Naturopath has the obligation to respect and adapt his recommendations to those that the doctor is already indicating to the person.
