What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a holistic method of healing which recognises the ability of the body to overcome disease. It is a system of medicine founded on the most time-tested medical principle: the healing power of nature. The goal of naturopathy is to restore the body's natural functioning through the use of natural substances and treatments that enhance its innate healing abilities.
Naturopathy is an art and science of healthy living and drugless system of healing based on well founded philosophy. It has its own concept of health and disease and also principles of treatment. Prakritik Chikitsa, Nature Cure, Pancha Tattva Chikitsa and Nature Therapy are different names of Naturopathy. 
It aims to attain sound health by dealing with the topics like, how we should live? What we should eat? And how our daily routine should be? The methods of nature cure not only helps us in attaining freedom from diseases but with the help of their regular, sustained flow positive and vigorous health can be acquired.
Naturopathy holds the belief that our body is made up of five basic elements and any imbalance in the body function are the results of our wrong life style. Due to the sedentary life styles, our systems become unable to expel the unwanted matters (known as morbid matter or toxins in Naturopathy) out of the body. The accumulation of these toxins implies diseases. 
In naturopathy diseases are the dis-ease state of the body which is removed by means of the five elements (ether, water, fire air and space) of which our body is made. There are different therapies based on them, i.e. fasting (space element), mud therapy (ether element), hydro therapy (water element), massage therapy and chromo therapy (fire elements) and various breathing exercises also known as air therapy (air elements).
