Nature Cure

"All healing powers are within one’s body" and that human body is a powerful living dynamo capable of self-preservation, without any help from external agents. Indiscriminate drugging as such does more harm than good, with its dangerous side effects.

As per philosophy of Indian Naturopathy the human body owes its existence to Nature's five elements - Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Ether - a composite representation of all forces of Nature. In positive health, each of these elements is in equilibrium and well balanced. Any disturbance in this equilibrium due to any cause leads to accumulations of toxins and morbidity, which manifest in diseases. Nature cure therapy aligns us with the self-preservative Will of Nature to protect and heal the body from within, by weeding out the root cause of diseases. It treats the person and strengthens the body’s immune system.

Nature Cure is an art and science of healthy living and a drugless system of healing based on well founded philosophy. It has its own concept of health and disease and also principles of treatment. Nature Cure is rightly defined as a system of man building in harmony with constructive principles of Nature on physical, mental, moral and spiritual planes of living. It has great health promotive, disease preventive and curative as well as restorative potential.

Nature Cure is a very old science of healing and art of living. We can find a number of references in our Vedas and other ancient texts. The "morbid matter theory", "concept of Vital force" and other concepts upon which Nature Cure is based are already available in old texts which indicate that these modalities were widely practised in ancient India.

The Swastha Vritta described in Ayurveda is basically Naturopathy. In ancient days the job of a physician was not confined to treat the disease but also to educate the people in healthy life style. Subsequently Vaidyas drifted from their principal responsibility of giving proper health education to people in regard to the principles of healthy living as well as living and eating habits and confined themselves only to prescribing medicines to the patients. This deteriorating trend resulted in the need of Naturopathy as a science of healthy living, because the rectification of eating and living habits is more important than medicine. Nature Cure very beautifully explains this principle, "A disease can be overcome by regulating diet without any medicine. But a man whose diet is not regulated cannot conquer disease even after taking hundreds of medicines. There is no better medicine than the choice of food according to ones hunger and constitution. A man can remain forever healthy through the right choice of food alone. A man cannot survive without food evenwhile taking medicine. Therefore great physicians have regarded the right choice of diet as the best remedy".

The fundamental difference of Nature Cure with other systems is that its theory and practice are based on holistic view point where as the latters approach is specific. Nature Cure does not believe in the specific cause of disease and its specific treatment but takes into account the totality of factors responsible for disease such as ones un-natural habits in living, thinking, working, sleeping, relaxing, sexual indulgence etc. and also considers the environmental factors involved which on the whole disturb the normal functioning of the body and lead it to a morbid, weak and toxic state. For treatment, it primarily stresses to correct all the factors involved and allows the body to recover itself. The Nature Cure physician helps in Natures effort to overcome disease by applying correct natural modalities and controlling the natural forces to work within safe limits.
