Naturopathy - Concepts and Principles


In fact, Nature Cure is a way of life of which we find a number of references in the 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 methods were widely practised in ancient India.

The whole practice of Nature cure based on the following three principles:

  • Accumulation of morbid matter
  • Abnormal composition of blood and lymph
  • Lowered vitality

Nature Cure believes that all the diseases arise due to accumulation of morbid matter in the body and if scope is given for its removal, it provides cure or relief. It also believes that the human body possesses inherent self constructing and self healing powers. The fundamental difference in Nature Cure with other systems is that its theory and practice are based on holistic view point whereas the later’s 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 diseases such as one’s un-natural habits in living, thinking, working, sleeping, relaxation, sexual indulgence etc, and also considers the environmental factors involved which on the whole disturbs the normal functioning of the body and lead it to a morbid, weak and toxic state.

For treatment it primarily stresses on correcting all the factors involved and allowing the body to recover itself. A Nature Cure physician helps in Nature’s effort to overcome disease by applying correct natural modalities and controlling the natural forces to work within safe limits. The five main modalities of treatment are air, water, heat, mud and space.


  • All disease, their cause and their treatment are one.
  • The basic cause of disease is not bacteria. Bacteria develops after the accumulation of morbid matter when a favorable atmosphere for their growth develops in body. Basic cause is morbid matter and not the bacteria.
  • Acute diseases are our friends not the enemies. Chronic diseases are the outcome of wrong treatment and suppression of the acute diseases.
  • Nature is the greatest healer. Body the capacity to prevent itself from diseases and regain health if unhealthy.
  • In Naturopathy patient is treated and not the disease.
  • In Naturopathy diagnosis is easily possible. Ostentation is not required. Long waiting for diagnosis is not required for treatment.
  • Nature Cure treats body as a whole instead of giving treatment to each organ separetely.
  • Naturopathy does not use medicines. According to Naturopathy " Food is Medicine".

According to Gandhi Ji "Rama Nama is the best Natural Treatment", means doing prayer according to one’s spiritual faith is an important part of treatment.

The core modalities supporting these principles include diet modification and nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, acupuncture  and Chinese medicine, hydrotherapy, massage and joint manipulation. The application of controlled force to a joint, moving it beyond the normal range of motion in an effort to aid in restoring health. Manipulation may be performed as a part of other therapies or whole medical systems, including chiropractic  medicine, massage, and naturopath. and lifestyle counseling. Treatment protocols combine what the practitioner deems to be the most suitable therapies for the individual patient.

In short, Nature Cure includes all the available non-invasive treatments and diagnostic modalities which do not interfere with the body’s natural functional capacity and healing process and are in affirmity with Nature’s constructive Principles.
