6. Questions & Answers
How can I eliminate my backache if I do not receive chiropractic adjustments?
In most cases, pain in the back is due to toxic accumulations. The most rational mode of action would be to fast, thus freeing the energies needed for detoxification, and then go on a normal Hygienic diet. When you feel better, begin a good exercise program and your back will mend.
Why do some naturopaths employ the use of herbs, electrotherapy, physiotherapy, manipulations, vitamins, minerals, etc.?
Many naturopaths are looking for “cures” to sell just as are the medical doctors. They do not fully realize that the so-called “disease” is the cure and it is the body’s way of eliminating toxins and initiating healing. If left alone, the disease will terminate itself.
How do you explain the success of the homeopaths and their popularity today?
The homeopaths prescribe drugs in such minute doses that the body can eliminate these poisons much easier than those prescribed in the regular large doses of the medical doctor. Therefore, the body is relatively unhampered in its healing efforts. So, it is still the body that heals and effects the “cure”—not any drug. The homeopaths would be even more successful if they prescribed no drugs at all and addressed themselves to removal of causes.
Is Osteopathy similar to that of regular medical practice?
Present-day osteopathic practices are similar to regular medical practices. Osteopaths prescribe drugs and all the other therapies used by the dominant school of medicine. The major difference is that the osteopath also uses manipulative therapy and the medical practitioners do not.
