Naturopathy is the world’s oldest recognized healing system which combines the use of natural agents such as proper diet, exercise, herbs, and other natural therapies for a wide range of health problems. Naturopathy was systematized in 1928 by a German doctor named Dr. Benedict Lust who is considered to be the Father of Naturopathy in the United States.
In the Philippines, it is the Green Life Centre for Alternative Medicine (GLCAM) which provides training in naturopathic medicine. GLCAM is run by Dr. Artonlee Dulce whose life story has been featured in 700 Club Philippines. He took up his studies in naturopathic medicine in the U.S. and England and is a pioneer of naturopathy in the Philippines. Personally speaking, I know Dr. Art as a competent, dedicated, and inspiring figure.
Dr. Art recently invited me to do a talk on the topics of “natural healing for psychiatric disorders” and “energy healing.” Three hours were barely enough since the students showed their keen interest in the topics through the intelligent questions and personal stories shared during the open forum.
The GLCAM naturopathic training program includes courses on
- Diet and nutrition,
- Enzyme therapy,
- Orthomolecular nutrition,
- Dried blood cell analysis,
- Basic anatomy and physiology,
- Cancer nutrition therapy,
- Homeopathic medicine,
- Aromatherapy and more.
For those interested in becoming a naturopathic doctor, you may contact GLCAM at 400-6176 and 0922-356-6468, or visit them at PITAHC Building, Matapang Street, East Avenue Medical Center, Quezon City.
I wish Dr. Art Dulce more power as he trains his students to become competent and compassionate healers who use God’s natural resources for the betterment of mankind.
