AYUSH Ministry, Government of India declared November 18th
as National Naturopathy Day with the aim of promoting this drugless system of medicine to prevent and to treat lifestyle diseases by changing dietary pattern and lifestyle habits.
Dr. Subhashini S
, Naturopathy and Yoga consultant, PSG Super Speciality Hospitals, says the roots of Naturopathy dates back to thousands of years relying on the healing wisdom of many cultures across the world. In early civilizations, people lived in a harmonious relationship with the nature, surroundings and the understanding of disease was accomplished by observing nature and how it interplayed with human life. Naturopathy is a system of medicine which recognizes the existence of the vital curative force within the body. In simpler terms, the body has an innate ability to heal.
She also added that treatment in Naturopathy is based on the concept of Panchamahabhutas – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether which form the basic constituents of the body. These elements are used as external treatment modalities – Hydrotherapy, Mud therapy, Massage therapy, Acupuncture along with Diet therapy and Yoga therapy to revitalize and rejuvenate the body and the mind.
In order to achieve optimum health, Naturopathy treats all aspect of an individual by modifying individual lifestyle and dietary habits. Also it guides to achieve emotional wellbeing. Naturopathy has great health promotive, disease preventive and curative as well as restorative potential.
