Naturopathy in Nutshell

Naturopathy is a science which promotes the art of curing and preventing diseases by bringing about suitable changes in food and lifestyle. The five basic natural elements consisting of soil, water, air, fire and sunlight are used in different forms for treating the diseases. The use of any chemical or formulated drugs is not practiced; hence naturopathy is referred as ‘drugless therapy’. It has proven to be quite effective in treating chronic diseases.

Naturopathy is a popular alternative therapy, which upholds the basic principle that our body has the inbuilt ability to heal itself when provided with proper nutrition, exercise and environment. We are born with strong inbuilt resistance power, which if preserved carefully will not let the disease attack us.

If we observe the way wild animals live, we realize they do not have any doctors to attend to them. They adhere to natural way of treatment when they are ill. The accumulation of harmful substances in our body is the major cause of illness. Wrong living and eating habits, irregular and sedentary lifestyle, addictions, pollution, stress, and use of harmful drugs are the major factors that adversely affect our immunity.

Simple tips promoted in Naturopathy for good health:
*Follow a healthy diet routine. Include lot of raw vegetables, fruits and salads in your daily diet.
*Drink lot of clean water. Adults should drink 8-12 glasses every day. Also drinking water while having food should be avoided.
*Increase intake of fresh and pollution free air. Brisk walking for about half an hour in the early morning helps store extra oxygen needed to remain fresh for full day. Also sunbathing early morning is a very healthy practice and should be carried out everyday whenever climate permits.
*Practice Yoga, meditation and pranayama daily for at least 10-15 minutes.

DrSri,
"Naturopathy is a popular alternative therapy" I won't agree with it.

All other methods are the alternate therapies to Naturopathy.
