Naturopathy is a system of building up health in harmony with constructive principles of nature on physical, mental, moral and spiritual levels of living. It has great potential for health promotion, disease prevention, ailment cure and restoration of health.


Naturopathy, also known as Nature Cure, is a scientific system of treatment mainly based on natural way of living. Natural way of living means observation of the principles of healthy in conformity with nature. The rules of naturopathy regarding eating, drinking, mating, doing exercises, rest, sleep, maintaining the right mental attitude and behavior, etc. recommend use of natural resources. It recommends proper use of sunlight, water and air for healthy living and preservation of natural eco system.

Deviation from the principles of healthy living leads towards lowered vitality and abnormal composition of blood and lymph resulting in toxemia and disease.

Ten Main Principles of Naturopathy

1) Except for traumatic and environmental conditions, diseases are caused by accumulation and elimination of toxic matter in the body. Accumulation of morbid matter in the body and its elimination from the body has important part to play in maintaining the health of the body. Diseases are caused by these two and treatment can be given by correcting them.

2) We think that the primary cause of diseases is bacteria or virus. But it is not true. Bacteria and virus enter and survive in the body only after the accumulation of morbid matter when a favorable condition for their growth is established in the body. The bacteria and other causes are only secondary.

3) The main feature of Nature Cure is that it treats the patient and not the diseases as other systems do.

4) Actually diseases are the outward symptom of self-healing effort of the body. Hence they are approached as our friends and not as an enemy. Chronic diseases are the outcome of wrong treatment and suppression of the acute diseases.

5) Nature is the greatest healer. Our body has the capacity to prevent diseases and protect itself from diseases and also to regain the strength lost during an illness.

6) Even suppressed diseases can be cured by naturopathy. It follows the laws of nature in treating them.

7) Naturopathy does not require any ostentatious tests and unnecessary prolonged laboratory tests. It has a very simple diagnosis system. It does not torture the patient with frightening processes.

8) Naturopathy takes into consideration physical, mental, social, moral and spiritual aspects together in healing. It considers body, mind and soul as whole and that is why it is called a holistic healing.

9) Naturopathy does not use chemicals and other substances as medicine. According to naturopathy 'Food is medicine'.

10) Prayer and faith in God have great significance in naturopathy. Faith is the basic foundation of naturopathy.
