Definition of Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a distinct primary health care system that stresses upon the body’s self-healing mechanism. Naturopathy uses a wide range of therapies to support human wellness. The foundation of Naturopathy is based on the greatness of exercise, sunlight, freshwater, stress management, healthy diet, and so on. Naturopathy always advocates the importance of own health, minimizing symptoms of illness, balancing the entire human mechanism, and supporting the body’s own ability to heal. 

According to the manifesto of the British Naturopathic Association, ‘’Naturopathy is a system of treatment which lays emphasis on the existence of the vital curative force within the body.’’ Hence, it aids the human system to remove the cause of disease, i.e. toxins by eliminating unwanted and unused matters from the human body for curing diseases. The treatment plans of Naturopathy also include some therapies like nutrition, herbal medicine, physical manipulation, colonic irrigation, fasting, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, and so on.
