The cure of nature is the science of life, which deals with the care of the organism in a state of disease. Treatment includes measures such as a proper diet, administration of herbal juices, fasting, rest and relaxation, exercise, pranayama, sunbathing, hydropathy, mud therapy, etc. There is no place in science for drugs of any kind that ultimately endanger health. Non-violence to the human body is accepted as the basic principle that governs the application of Nature’s healing measures.
It is a system of treatment of diseases without drugs. This healing system firmly believes that the living body heals itself.
In other words, naturopathy is based on the recognition that the body possesses not only a natural ability to resist disease, but also inherent recovery and self-regulation mechanisms. It is a treatment system that recognizes the existence of a vital healing force in the body. The body will have a greater resistance to disease or at least the ability to recover to normal if it becomes ill.
In the human body, every cell and tissue is endowed with vitality and endowed with the instinct for self-preservation. Natural healing is a biological process that always comes from within and is automatic, spontaneous and continuous. In Naturopathy, these attempts are encouraged through the use of natural factors such as diet, exercise and relaxation, fresh air, and water cure (hydrotherapy). The overall driving force of treatment is to restore a patient’s healthy conditions to the extent possible and equally advocate for prevention rather than cure.
