Simply Naturopathy is a system of medicine that uses natural substances and natural ways to heal the patient. Besides, it also fully strives on knowing the patient’s mental, emotional, and physical conditions in order to bring a lasting effect. More clearly, Naturopathy is a holistic system of treatment or healing that is fully based on the nature’s power and blessings. It is a form of alternative medicine underpinned on a vitalistic belief that stresses on special energy regarded as vital energy or life force. This vital energy, in the concept of Naturopathy, regulates all the mechanisms like metabolism, growth, digestion, etc. in our body. Thus, it is on behalf of a holistic approach unlike Allopathy that attempts at applying least harmless ways to improve symptoms with the least use of surgery and medicines.
Generally Naturopathic doctors attempt to find out the cause of any ailments by trying to comprehend the body, mind, and soul dimensions of an individual. Mostly they exploit different therapies and techniques like Ayurveda, Acupressure, homeopathy, nutrition, herbal medicine, acupuncture, etc. in order to heal the acute and chronic diseases of a patient. Like other therapies—Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Acupressure, etc. that are based on vitalistic underpinnings—it is also considered as an alternative healing system.
