ABSTRACT:
Naturopathy is a unique and varied system of health care that accentuates the use of preemptive and natural therapeutics. Naturopathic are proficient to work as primary care specialists who are experts in the prevention, identification, managing, and curing of both critical as well as prolonged illnesses. The goal of naturopathy is not the treatment of the disease alone, but rather to restore wellness of the body. Treatment plans are designed for the individual patient, and they are not based on the common symptoms. Naturopathic medicine essentially probes the correlation that exists between the physical, emotional and psychological well being of the individual thereby attempting to restore complete wellness and health. They give natural medicine with which the disease is cured instantly without taking much time for the symptom to be cured. This type of medicine was discovered by Hippocrates, a Greek physician, approximately 2400 years ago and is predominantly based on the concept of nature’s healing power. Naturopathy favors a holistic approach with non-invasive treatment and generally avoids the use of surgery and allopathic drugs. Naturopathy completes rejection of biomedicine and modern science in common. Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy, is a system that uses natural substances to treat the patient and recognition that the patient’s mental, emotional, and physical states must all be treated for a lasting effect. It also considers the environmental factors involved which on the whole disturb the normal functioning of the body and lead it to a morbid, weak and toxic state. The foundation of Naturopathic medicine is the vitalistic philosophy of the healing power of nature. Naturopathy insists that the healing of diseases with natural resources present in the environment like soil, water, sunlight & message etc.
