A naturopath, also known as a phytotherapist, is a plant friend with a holistic worldview whose goal is to bring people closer to nature. Men should rely on nature and be in close contact with it because it provides all of the necessities for life. We are all a part of a larger picture. The environment in which we live has an impact on us, and we, in turn, have an impact on the environment. Estonians have long been regarded as witches due to their extensive knowledge of medicinal plants.
Plants are necessary for life on Earth to function. Man breathes oxygen produced by plants, eats and treats plants, and decomposes dead plants. We will discover that plants communicate with us and want to help us if we pay attention to our surroundings. Daniel Chamovitz's book “What a Plant Knows” delves deeper into the subject.
How can a naturopath help?
The goal of the naturopath is to restore the use of local herbs in daily life. It is a well-known fact that the closer your daily food is grown, the better it is for our bodies and also for the environment because transporting it requires less fuel. Because of the principle of similarity, herbs grown in Estonian soil are far more beneficial to Estonians than herbs grown anywhere else in the world.
Symptoms are the body's way of informing us that something is wrong. The first step is to learn to listen to your body so that health problems can be avoided gradually. Herbs produce the best results when used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, adequate exercise, and vitamins obtained from real food. We identify the habits and patterns that cause your health problems in holistic herbal medicine.
Natural holistic treatment is usually less expensive and safer than other treatments. Plants aid in the body's self-healing process. Naturopaths want you to understand your body, what's important for good health, and eventually be able to decipher plant messages. When a person learns about nature, she passes it on to her children, helping to restore the somewhat vanishing plant knowledge. Everyone should be able to use nature as a home pharmacy, properly care for it, and to communicate with it.
It is quite common to research to verify that this or that is effective. So if the outcome isn't as expected, someone else will be held accountable. Unfortunately, don't believe every survey is trustworthy because behind every survey is usually an organization, and we still live in a business world. Medicinal plants, on the other hand, have been around for centuries, which means they've been used in a variety of situations and have provided relief even in difficult situations. We, the people, where a so-called "test group." We've discovered that many plants can be used to flavor food as well as heal us over generations. As a result, herbs that have been working with us for a long time have proven themselves many times more than any synthesized product.

Herbs, oils, tinctures, ointments, and tufts are all tools that can be used to access plant magic by a naturopath. Elements are frequently used to aid in the treatment of a variety of ailments. Earth, water, air, and fire, according to the ancient Greeks (450 BC). Herbalists follow this holistic approach as well. Knowing our constellation allows us to learn more about our element, which allows us to better understand ourselves and support our health in ways that are more in line with the element's needs.
You've likely heard that drinking herbal teas can help with a cold. This is true to some extent, but is it always the case?
FIRE - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
What effect does water have on a fire? Extinguishes, i.e., for a quick treatment, tinctures based on alcohol or vinegar are required. The tincture helps to keep the fire burning so that the body can heal. The tincture's active ingredients have already been absorbed into the oral mucosa, allowing them to enter your bloodstream more quickly. Furthermore, many herbs work best when they're fresh, and tinctures allow you to keep that freshness for years.
- The fire is passionate and warm, and it is often the focal point of any gathering. Fire is arguably the most entertaining, imaginative, and dynamic of the four elements. However, as in everyday life, the fire must be kept under control; otherwise, its ferocity will destroy everything in its path.
AIR - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
What effect does water have on the atmosphere? The water does not stay in the midst of the wind's chaos, so there is no benefit, unfortunately. Instead, use steam, incense, essential oils, or a smudge stick to speed up the healing process. All of this can be inhaled through the lungs. Thousands of years have passed since the same technique was used, and it is completely natural, safe, and non-addictive. After all, each plant contains unique compounds that affect the body and nervous system when inhaled.
- The most focused of the four elements, air, is focused on your thoughts, allowing you to be attentive and see the big picture. It can, on the other hand, lead to a lack of social etiquette.
WATER - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Tea is an excellent choice for the water element because it was created specifically for him. Herbal tea has a pleasant aroma and flavor, and it is high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
- The water element can appear calm on the surface, but there are emotions in constant motion beneath the surface. He is compassionate and caring, and he communicates well with others, but he can be overconfident at times.
EARTH - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Tea is also good for the earth element, but anything that can be eaten in its natural state works best. Herbs in honey are a great way to get your herbs. Headace, for example, can be alleviated by honey and meadowsweet.
- Earth is a dependable, hardworking, and stable planet. He is practical and logical, and he is a firm believer in what he believes, which can lead to stubbornness in order to make a point.
This isn't to say that we shouldn't drink tea or use smudge sticks, tinctures, or other herbal remedies. A holistic approach to herbal medicine outlines methods for achieving the desired results more quickly. A nice herbal tea is always a good way to start the day or end the evening while reading a good book. Tea is one of the healthiest beverages available, second only to water.
Why is nature important?
A 20-minute view of a forest landscape reduces stress by 13%, according to a Japanese study. Consider what happens to our skin and energy field when we use herbs on a daily basis, whether in food or natural cosmetics. We are one with nature, and medicinal plants are suitable as strong supporters of our energy field, perhaps because of the principle of similarity. It's often enough to simply hold the plant to make an impression. Medicinal herbs have been used by humans for centuries, which means that their effects are many times better and stronger than some laboratory-created products. Your body accepts things more quickly.
Herbal treatment is slow and requires patience, but it is very effective because it does not harm the human body. Naturopaths understand this. A study trip and a taxi are the best parallels. The plant acts as a driving instructor, teaching you how to drive on your own until you no longer require it. The drug, on the other hand, is a taxi driver who will eventually take over your life and render you incapable of driving.
