Naturopathy is an alternative system of medicinal science, founded on the ancient Vedic philosophies on the maintenance of the vital life-force in one’s body as way to securing physical, spiritual and mental health. It is a drugfree, non-invasive and natural approach to healing that relies on a harmonic convergence of bodily energies.
A number of people today, frustrated with the tenuous cycles of medication and over-medication, see Naturopathy as return to the gentle loving lap of mother nature. Naturopathic treatments are gentle, effective treatments that are completely organic and drug-free. This system of medicine sees the balancing of five bodily elemental energies i.e. Jal (Water), Vayu (Air), Akash (Sky), Agni (Fire) and Prithvi (Earth). Together they constitute the Panchamahabhuta – the corporeal energy of life.
The Five great elements of nature, and the treatments based on them, are:
– Earth – Mud baths, Mud packs, Body wraps
– Water – Hydrotherapeutic methods in the form of Baths, Jets, Douches, Packs, Compresses, Immersions and Colonic Irrigations
– Air – Breathing exercises, Outdoor walking, Open air baths
– Fire – Sun baths, Thermoleum baths, Magnetised water, Colour charged oils/water
– Ether – Fasting therapy
