What will you learn in this Diploma in Alternative Medicine
In this module you will learn all about What Is Nature Cure?. It is vastly more than a system of curing aches and pains; it is a complete revolution in the art and science of living. It is the practical realization and application of all that is good in natural science, philosophy, and religion. Like many another worldwide revolution and reformation, it had its inception in Germany, the land of thinkers and philosophers.
This module will teach you about Catechism of Nature Cure. The philosophy of Nature Cure is based on sciences dealing with newly discovered or rediscovered natural laws and principles, and with their application to the phenomena of life and death, health, disease, and cure.
In this module you will learn all about The Unity of Disease and Treatment. There exists a close resemblance between the mechanism and the functions of a watch and of the human body. Their well-being is subject to similar underlying laws and principles. Both a watch and a human body may function abnormally as a result of accidental injury or unfavorable external conditions, such as extreme heat or cold, etc.
This module will teach you about Suppression Versus Elimination. My claim that the conventional treatment of acute diseases is suppressive and not curative will probably be denied by my medical colleagues. They will maintain that their methods also are calculated to eliminate morbid matter and disease germs from the system. But what are the facts in actual practice? Is it not true that preparations of mercury, lead, zinc and other powerful poisons are constantly used to suppress skin eruptions, boils, abscesses, etc.
In this module you will learn all about Inflammation. From what has already been said on this subject, it will have become apparent that inflammatory and feverish diseases are just as natural, orderly and lawful as anything else in Nature, that, therefore, after they have once started, they must not be checked or suppressed by poisonous drugs and surgical operations.
This module will teach you about The Effects of Suppression of Venereal Diseases. Another good illustration of suppression may be found in the allopathic treatment of venereal diseases. Almost invariably the drug treatment suppresses these diseases in the stages of incubation and aggravation, thus locking them up in the system. The venereal taints and germs, however, are living things which grow and multiply until the body has been completely permeated by them. Then they must find an outlet somehow and somewhere, and consequently, they break out in the manifold so-called “secondary” and “tertiary” symptoms.
In this module you will learn all about The True Scope of Medicine. Anyone able to read the signs of the times cannot help observing the powerful influence which the Nature Cure philosophy is already exerting upon the trend of modern medical science. In Germany, the younger generation of physicians has been forced by public demand to adopt the natural methods of treatment and the German government has introduced them in the medical departments of its army and navy.
This module will teach you about Homeopathy. True homeopathic medicines in high-potency doses are so highly refined and rarefied that they cannot possibly produce harmful results or suppress Nature’s cleansing and healing efforts; on the contrary, if employed according to the Law of Homeopathy: “like cures like,” they assist in producing acute reactions or healing crises, thus aiding Nature in the work of purification and repair.
In this module you will learn all about The Diphtheria Antitoxin. The antitoxin treatment for diphtheria is still in high favour, while in Germany, where it originated, many of the best medical authorities are abandoning its use on account of its doubtful curative results and certain destructive after-effects. According to the enthusiastic advocates of this treatment among the “regular” physicians in this country, the antitoxin is a “certain cure” for diphtheria; but how is this claim borne out by actual facts? The Health Bulletins sent regularly to every physician in the City of Chicago by the City Health Department show an average of from fifteen to twenty deaths every week from diphtheria treated with antitoxin.
This module will teach you about Periodicity. Periodicity is governed by the Septimal Law or Law of Sevens, which seems to be the basic law governing the vibratory activities of the planetary universe. The harmonics of heat, light, sound, electricity, magnetism and of atomic structure and arrangement run in scales of seven. The Law of Sevens governs the days of the week, the phases of the moon and the menstrual periods of the woman. Every observing physician is aware of its influence on feverish, nervous and psychic diseases. The Law of Sevens dominates the life of individuals and of nations and of everything that lives and has periods of birth, growth, fruitage, and decline
In this module you will learn all about The Treatment of Chronic Diseases.Let us now consider the best methods for producing the healing crises referred to in the preceding chapters, that is, the best methods for treating the chronic forms of the disease.We found that acute diseases represent Nature’s efforts to purify and regenerate the human organism by means of inflammatory feverish processes, while in the chronic condition the system is not capable of arousing itself to such acute reactions. The treatment must differ accordingly.
This module will teach you about Acid Diseases. All acids, with the exception of carbonic acid, exert a tensing influence upon the tissues of the body, while alkalies have a relaxing effect. The normal functions of the body depend upon the equilibrium between these opposing forces.
In this module you will learn all about Hydrotherapy Treatment of Chronic Disease. While in our treatment of acute diseases we use wet packs and cold ablutions to promote the radiation of heat and thereby to reduce the fever temperature, our aim in the treatment of chronic diseases is to arouse the system to the acute eliminative effort. In other words, while in acute disease our hydropathic treatment is sedative, in chronic diseases it is stimulative.
This module will teach you about Air and Light Baths. Even among the adherents of Nature Cure, there are those who think that air and light baths should be taken out of doors in warm weather only and in winter time only in well-heated rooms.
In this module you will learn all about Physical Exercise. Physical exercise has similar effects upon the system as hydrotherapy, massage, and manipulative treatment. It stirs up the morbid accumulations in the tissues, stimulates the arterial and venous circulation, expands the lungs to their fullest capacity, thereby increasing the intake of oxygen, and most effectively promotes the elimination of waste and morbid materials through skin, kidneys, bowels and the respiratory tract.
This module will teach you about The Symphony of Life. Human life appears to me as a great orchestra in which we are the players. The great composition to be performed is the “Symphony of Life,” its infinitude of dissonances and melodies blending into one colossal tone picture of harmony and grandeur.
