Naturopathy is a natural healing technique using the healing powers of nature. The Principle of Naturopathy is that the accumulation of toxins is the root cause of all diseases, hence prevention of such accumulation and elimination of existing toxins is the route to health. This multidisciplinary approach uses the healing power of natural resources like foods, herbs, earth, water, air, sun and even magnets to allow the body to heal itself. Most treatments are based on the 5 great elements of nature that have immense healing properties.
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
Of the five elements of nature, mud represents Earth and has a tremendous impact on the maintenance of health and prevention of diseases.
