There is an increasing demand for medicines from traditional systems in developing as well as developed countries because of their being into existence since a very long time thereby enjoying the reputation of being both safe and efficacious. Naturopathy is a field of health care that works with, and not against standard allopathic health care providers, such as medical doctors. The philosophy of Naturopathy is to work with the body, to assist it in its natural ability to heal and maintain health. Treatments are natural and non-invasive and include herbal remedies, lifestyle changes, and dietary modifications and in some case other complementary techniques including massage, acupuncture or aromatherapy.
Naturopathic practioners focus on the work closely with the patient’s own unique set of symptoms, reactions and status. Natural health plays an important role for the holistic development of the personality. It is utmost important to have technical and scientific knowledge of all the components such as hydrotherapy, chromotherapy, diet therapy, magnet therapy etc. for promotion and preservation of health.
