Naturopathy among all the natural therapeutic approaches best addresses obstacles to cure. Removing obstacles to cure include revision of diet, detoxification of the tissues and opening of the channels of elimination, improving the living environment, and counseling for stress management. The body can heal itself more efficiently through processes of waste removal and tissue regeneration when obstacles are removed and with the positive encouragement of proper function through prescribed exercises, massage/body work, and hydrotherapy. The first line of medicine should always be the maintenance of proper lifestyle because 70% of all disease can be reversed by the body once obstacles to cure are removed.

The “healing crisis” is often spoken of among nature cure advocates. This is simply the body’s strong reaction to remove toxins from the body, which results in flu-like symptoms such as sleepiness, fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, etc. This reaction does not always occur and the severity of the reaction depends on the amount of toxins the body needs to eliminate. Naturopathic methods help to encourage this reaction as smoothly and as comfortably as possible. It is quite natural to feel a little more discomfort before you start feeling better. When the body is healing, it is necessary to be patient and trust the doctor inside.

Often with naturopathic methods alone, a person can regain health and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. For example, lets look at M.T.’s situation when he first came to see us. M.T. is a 47 year old school administrator who complained of frequent bowel movements, which his medical doctor diagnosed as Crohn’s disease. Over the years, he had tried various health food supplements and tried eliminating some foods from his diet but nothing seemed to provide any long term consistent relief. We evaluated his situation and placed him on a diet free of wheat, oats, barley, rye, corn, and dairy. We asked him to eat brown rice products and to avoid added sugar. We gave him some simple home remedies/self-help tips to follow such as chewing his food thoroughly before swallowing, rubbing his abdomen for a few minutes after each meal, and dry skin brush before showering. Within two days he noticed a significant change in frequency and consistency of his stool and continues to do well.

Dr. SuHu is first and foremost a family care doctor. He has repeatedly seen how individuals and families can truly help themselves with minimal medical intervention and mostly through health education and positive encouragement. Change takes time and watching how an individual and family blossom together over time brings Dr. SuHu the greatest joy.

Dr. SuHu honors the presence of a client and approaches the therapeutic relationship with the highest sanctity. He avoids all moral judgements and views every individual as an equal human being. Everyone has a talent and calling in life, and there is not one better than the other. He sees himself as a friend, with a particular talent and calling. Thus, he likes to think of himself as a therapeutic friend.

Dr. SuHu is known for his empathetic presence and honesty. Through his own experience with healing physical and emotional pains and the wisdom imparted to him through his clients, he has been able to show people how to successfully embrace their own journeys and overcome pain and suffering.

Dr.SuHu has been broadly educated with formal degrees with Bachelors in Chemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Masters in Nutrition from New York University, Diplomate in Acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture, and Doctor of Naturopathy from the University of Bridgeport, College of Naturopathic Medicine.
