Naturopathy is a system of working towards the cure of diseases without using medicines. It is an ancient and traditional science which integrates the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of our natural constitution. Naturopathy has the capacity to prevent and in some cases also cure the disease. The main principles of Naturopathy are astounding. First, the reasons and remedies of all diseases are the same; ailments develop due to the presence of intoxicants which are removed. Second, the intoxicants cause diseases, not bacteria and viruses which simply feed off them. Third, nature itself is the best ‘doctor’, the patient is cured, not the ailment. All levels of the body are treated simultaneously and holistically. Finally, no medicines are used because Naturopathy is a superb medicine in itself. The principal aim of Naturopathy is to teach people the art of healthy living by changing their daily routine and habits—this not only cures the disease but makes our bodies strong and glowing. o, what are the techniques that are involved? There are four classifications: food, mud, water and massage therapies. In food therapy, the idea is to consume what we eat in its natural form as much as possible as it is by itself a medicine. This mainly includes fresh fruit, fresh leafy green vegetables, and sprouts; and there are different combinations of purifying, strengthening, or pacifying foods. These must be consumed in the correct proportion, and the stomach left a little empty. To extract intoxicants from the body, both mud baths and mud packs are used, particularly for ailments such as high blood pressure, tension headaches, anxiety, constipation, plus gastric and skin disorders. There are several main types of water therapy using clean fresh and cool water; and after this type of a treatment, the body feels refreshed and energized. The methods we use have efficacious results for a wide variety of ailments: a hip bath improves the efficiency of the liver, large intestine, stomach, and kidneys; a full steam bath opens the skin’s pores drawing out harmful intoxicants; a hot foot bath helps with asthma, knee pain, headache, sleeplessness, and menstrual irregularities; in addition, there is a full body water massage, a spine bath, hot and cold wraps, and enemas, all of these to get rid of the toxins we do not want. Finally there is a massage therapy which increases the blood flow, removing stiffness, weariness, and pain from muscles and this can work in conjunction with some of the other naturopathic therapies. It is true that Naturopathy can be used to help cure and relieve many of today’s illnesses and diseases. It can also be used by anyone who wishes to simply enjoy the feeling of relaxing. This, no doubt, is therapeutic in itself. Naturopathy is always helpful for whatever be the reason.
The literal meaning of the Sanskrit word Yoga is to ‘yoke’. Accordingly, Yoga can be defined as a means for uniting the individual spirit with universal spirit of God. Naturopathy consider that the human body owes its existence to Nature’s five elements – Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Ether a composite illustration of all forces of Nature. The element Earth stands for the solid structure like bones. Water is a representative of the fluids like blood, lymph, etc. Air represents the breath of life, Fire symbolizes the vitality and Ether or Space personifies the reflection of the human sprit – Soul – the unseen aspect of the human entity. In positive health, each of these elements is in equilibrium and well balanced. Any interruption in this equilibrium due to any cause leads to a disease. Naturopathy aligns us with the self-preservative Will of Nature to protect and heal itself from within, by weeding out the undesirable, with a strong sense of will power. Naturopathy believes “All healing powers are with in our body”. It, therefore, advocated aiding the human system to remove the cause of the disease i.e. toxins, by expelling discarded matter from the body for curing the disease. We fall ill only when we go against nature.
