Naturopathy is a science of disease elimination without using any drugs or medicines. It relies exclusively on natural elements such as earth, water, fire, air and ether. In the same way, the human body is also composed of these five elements. Hippocrates, who is called the Father of Naturopathy defined human beings as a combination of mind, spirit and body. Hence, any disturbance in the natural harmony within a human body is best treated by Naturopathy.

Why Naturopathy

In today’s modern world, a majority of other systems rely on drugs for curing diseases. People use drugs and medicines rather indiscriminately & often have to deal with many side-effects which are likely to be permanent thus making our immune system very weak. In reality it is the body that acts upon the drugs and not the drugs upon the body.


There is a regulatory agency in the body that maintains its health and it is called the Vital Force, the force that combats diseases. If the vital force gets weakened beyond repair, medicines are of no avail. Despite all this, Naturopathy does not disappoint them. A cure effected by Nature Cure methods is a sign of the vital force having been strengthened and the Patients can see significant benefits.

The Difference between Naturopathy and Conventional Medicine

“The main difference between naturopathy and conventional medicine is in philosophic approach. Naturopathic physicians treat patients by restoring overall health rather than suppressing a few key symptoms. Naturopathic physicians are more concerned with finding the underlying cause of a condition and applying treatments that work in alliance with the natural healing mechanisms of the body rather than against them.”

[1] The best thing is that Naturopathic treatments have no side effects. The therapy aims to encourage people to attain optimal well-being, so they can ensure a long life, vitality and happiness for themselves.
