Naturopathy is dedicated to the study and celebration of nature’s healing powers. The core practice of naturopathic medicine is as old as healing itself and as modern as new medical breakthroughs. The profession incorporates a dynamic philosophy and recognizes the interconnection and interdependence of all living things.

Naturopathy forms the least invasive and least toxic treatments that aid in boosting overall well-being. It enforces nature's healing power to revert the symptoms of many diseases.
There are 6 principles that govern the principles of naturopathy and its importance in one's life:

2. The healing power of nature

The way nature works and affects our health has come to the surface after many years of research. Naturopathy recognizes and brings forth the healing power that stays dormant in us. As the treatments are based completely on nature and its mechanism, one will see no side-effects and enjoy the long-term benefits. It is a Naturopathic doctor's duty to realize and fix the obstacles of growth, vitality, and improvement.

3. Identify and treat the cause

The basic and most ancient way to segregate the cause and treat it is based on three factors: Inner Dispositions, Poor lifestyle choices, and Environment. Most of us will benefit from uprooting the discomfort from its root cause. This may take a little time, but the results are always definite. Treating the cause refers to looking beyond the symptoms. It can be done by understanding the psychology and pathology of the person.

4. Doctor as Teacher

Learning about our own body, the healing process and how to approach the issues you are facing from your doctor is essential. Thomas Edison, an American inventor, wrote, "The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
'Docere' or Doctor comes from the Latin word that means 'to teach'. The role of a naturopathic doctor is to teach his patients to treat themselves. The doctor studies and tells his patient how he can maintain a healthy lifestyle with good food, exercise, spiritual well-being, environment, relationships, posture, hygiene, and sleep.

5. Treat the whole person

Western medicine aims to cure a specific disease or an affected body part. Each person is unique and has a unique set of factors contributing to the disease that has erupted. Diseases affect us through a complex interaction between the environment, lifestyle, and physical state. That is why naturopathic medicine factors in all these while treating a person. Moreover, it believes in treating the whole person, not a specific ailment.

6. Disease prevention

This principle aims at preventing and stopping the disease from evolving further. Rules for lifestyle and hygiene are set right first. Parts of this last principle is a continuous process:
- It starts at conception and continues throughout all of life;
- It is maintained through the homeostatic mechanisms of the body;
- It involves every aspect of a person their lifestyle, emotional and mental health and family and community
- It takes into consideration a person's environment and how to live in harmony with nature.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient healing therapy from India that seeks to restore health by looking at a person as a whole instead of focusing on a specific disease. Developed over 5,000 years ago, this alternative healing therapy creates balance and strengthens the body’s natural healing ability. According to Ayurveda, diseases are the result of imbalances and impurities that accumulate in the body over time. This is a mind-body technique and all the treatments are based on the constitution of an individual.
