Naturopathy is a healing method that has its roots in almost all cultures. India’s Ayurveda, traditional Chinese and Greek medicine, all lay great emphasis on the natural healing system. Naturopathy underscores the view that the body has natural abilities to resist diseases and to heal itself.
Nature cure is based on the principle that the healing is from within. Nature is of pre-eminence in healing and curing; all that the naturopathic physician does is to lend intelligent assistance and interpret nature’s laws for the patient. The fact is: DOCTOR TREATS, NATURE HEALS. The self-curative forces inherent in the human body work towards health and healing.
Diseases are mainly due to the accumulation of impurities in the body. Accumulation beyond a certain limit gives rise to diseases, and that is one of nature’s ways of removing the impurities quickly. From the view point of nature cure, disease is to be welcomed if it comes once in a while.
In the diseased state the body tries to excrete all foreign matter and waste products, which allopathy considers as symptoms of the disease and suppresses them, thereby letting the disease grow unimpeded. Naturopathy, on the contrary, eliminates these symptoms and cures the disease itself.
Cure cannot be obtained without cleansing. We cleanse the external parts of the body as they get dirty, but never try to cleanse the internal parts of the body especially the digestive organs. Internal cleansing is more important. Our body is a complicated machine, whose parts unfortunately cannot be removed, but cleansing it is surprisingly very easy unlike machinery. This is because the unique mechanism of our body – it is an auto cleaner. And cure is effected with little effort.
