Naturopathy

Nature cure treatments are very ancient and were widely practiced in ancient Rome, Egypt, Greece and India. However the term, 'Naturopathy' is relatively of recent origin. Hippocrates, the father of medicine said that it is Nature which cures, not the physician, and he strongly recommended these natural treatments. Even the Vedic culture of ancient India highlights the use of nature's foremost healing agents, water, air, earth and sun. The extensive use of water as a healing agent is clearly seen in the discovery of the Great Baths of the Indus civilization.

The modern ways of nature cure have their origins in Germany, when Vincent Priessnitz established the hydropathic establishment in 1822. Due to his great success with the water cure treatments, the news of nature cure spread widely to many countries. A number of medical practitioners from United States, England and other countries became his students to learn these amazing natural treatments. Subsequently these students developed their own methods of healing based upon the natural techniques, and this knowledge was later given one common name, Naturopathy by Dr. Benedict Lust (1872-1945), who incidentally is known as the Father of Naturopathy.

The basic theory of Naturopathy is based upon the fact that we are born healthy and can stay healthy by living in accordance with laws of nature. The entire philosophy is based upon three basic principles which have been tested and proved from over a century of successful Naturopathy treatments in Germany, England and United States.

The first principle is that all diseases are due to the accumulation of toxins and waste materials in the human body. These materials get piled up due to improper diet, lack of exercise, mental stress due to monetary or family problems, excess work etc. So the basic principle which is applied is to employ ways to clear the system from these toxins and accumulated waste. All natural treatments follow this basic principle in curing any disease.

The second principle is that acute diseases like digestive disorders, inflammations, colds, fevers, skin eruptions etc are basically efforts on part of the human body, to throw off the toxins and waste from within the system. When toxins accumulate, the organs of the body like the bowels, kidneys and lungs are overworked and cannot clear them as quickly as they are produced. Moreover mental disturbance and stress cause imbalance in the body's electric field where cell metabolism takes place. When this electric field is undisturbed, germs can live without multiplying, but once it is disturbed, the germs multiply and cause disease.

Other major diseases like diabetes, asthma, heart problems etc are the direct result of not curing the acute diseases by natural methods and their continued suppression by employing harmful methods such as the modern drugs and vaccines.

The third principle is that our body is equipped by the Creator with a unique self healing mechanism which will bring back the body to normal conditions of health, if proper natural methods are used to assist the system to function properly.

These are the basic principles of Naturopathy based upon the simple fact that the power to cure disease lies within the body and not in the hands of the physician.
