Naturopathic medicine is defined as a drugless,noninvasive,rational and evidence-based system of medicine imparting treatments with natural elements based on the theories of vitality, toxaemia and the self-healing capacity of the body,as well as the principles of healthy living.

Natural Elements:

  • Earth (Prithvi)
  • Water (App)
  • Sun (Tej)
  • Air (Vayu)
  • Ether (Akash)

Way of Healthy Living:

  • Waking up early in the morning (Brahmi mahoortam)
  • Eating only when hungry
  • Eating the food in its natural form (raw food)
  • Eating only the required quantity of food
  • Eating only after doing some physical work
  • Not drinking water while eating and immediately after eating
  • Fasting, resting, and drinking plenty of water when ill
  • Using the five great elements of nature for restoration or maintenance of health

Basic Principal of Nature Cure:

  • Body heals itself.
  • Main cause of disease is enervation
  • Deposit of metabolic end-products in the body is disease.
  • Acute disease is a remedial process-itself a cure.
  • Food is a building material, does not increase vitality.
  • Fasting provides an opportunity to the body to heal itself.
  • Germs do no cause the disease but are found in the diseased conditions.
  • Exercise or physical activity keeps the balance between nutrition and drainage.
  • External treatments whether natural, allopathic, ayurvedic or homeopathic - give only relief, do not cure.

  • Patient's own will to get well, determination and faith are necessary things for nature cure treatment.
