Focusing on the inner balance and energy in one's body, Naturopathy is the alternative healing science that uses natural elements to look for the cause and then treat accordingly against just curing the symptoms of the disorder. It uses the body's natural defense mechanism to remove the cause of the disorder in the most gentle and effective way possible.
Since Naturopathy treatments in India uses elements present in nature as the core therapy, an understanding of the elements is important to begin with. There are five main elements nature comprises of, which are Jal (Water), Vayu (Air), Akash (Sky), Agni (Fire) and Prithvi (Earth). These together are also known as Panchamahabhuta, which are also one of the chief attributes that form our body.
In this way, Naturopathy is more of a refined way of living life in sync with nature than being a mere healing science. It leads a holistic approach and balances the elements back to their Prakruti (natural state) and helps live a healthy, disease-free life.
Any toxin that gets in our system, usually our body reacts via fever, vomiting, cough, etc. in order to get rid of the toxins naturally. However, at times, our body fails to cope with the toxins with incorrect lifestyle, stress and lack of exercise. In such cases, the toxin starts to pile up in our body. Naturopathy plays a significant role in assisting the body to flush out all these toxins through normal channels, thus helping in curing diseases like diabetes, arthritis, asthma, eczema, indigestion and various skin concerns.
A healthy lifestyle and balanced routine accompanied with the goodness of Naturopathy goes a long way. Regular yoga along with mental hygiene and adequate distressing can greatly influence your balance of elements and keep you in good health.
