More about naturopathy

Naturopathy is a form of healthcare that combines modern treatment with traditional methods. It includes alternative, natural therapies to modern medicine. Naturopathy focuses on: the body’s capacity to heal itself, preventing health problems, a personal responsibility to optimize health. A 2019 review of studies found that methods that use naturopathy may be effective in:
* cardiovascular disease
* musculoskeletal pain
* type 2 diabetes
* polycystic ovary syndrome
* depression
* anxiety
* some other chronic conditions
Naturopaths work on a more personal level, spending more time covering individual needs. They create treatment plans that consider all aspects of a person. Naturopathy can be useful alongside modern medicine, and many say these methods allow the body to activate self-healing mechanisms. Naturopathic healthcare can also be a cheaper alternative to conventional healthcare.

It typically affects the middle or upper back, rather than the lower back or neck. Lordosis is an exaggerated inward curve of the spine, often in the neck or lower back. There several causes and risk factors, including congenital conditions, uneven posture, and injuries. A doctor can often diagnose lordosis with a physical examination, and imaging scans can help.
