Principles of Naturopath..
 HippocratesThe Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, once said "Nature cures, not the physician". Nature cure is a constructive method of treatment, which believes in the rational use of the freely available elements in nature for removing the basic cause of disease. It is not only a system of healing, but also a way of life, in tune with the internal vital forces or natural elements comprising the human body. It is a complete revolution in the art and science of living.

The term `naturopathy` is of relatively recent origin but the philosophical basis and several of the methods of nature cure treatments are ancient. Anciently Egypt, Greece and Rome were practicing Naturopathy. India, was much further advanced in olden days in natural healing system than other countries of the world. There are references in India`s ancient sacred books about the extensive use of nature`s excellent healing agents such as air, earth, water and sun. The Great Baths of the Indus Valley civilization as discovered at Mohenjodaro in old Sind testifies to the use of water for curative purposes in ancient India.

The modern methods of nature cure originated in Germany in 1822, when Vincent Priessnitz established the first hydropathic establishment there. Water cure was then on a great success and the idea of drugless healing spread throughout the civilized world and many medical practitioners from America and other countries became his enthusiastic students and disciples. These students later on enlarged and developed the various methods of natural healing in their own way. Naturopathy was the name given to the whole collected mass of knowledge. The credit for the name Naturopathy goes to Dr. Benedict Lust (1872-1945), and hence he is called the Father of Naturopathy.

What is Nature Cure?Nature cure is based on the realization that man is born healthy and strong and that he can stay as such by living in accordance with the laws of nature. It is believed that even if born with some inherited affliction, the individual can eliminate the disease by putting the natural agents of healing to the best use. Fresh air, sunshine, a proper diet, exercise, scientific relaxation, constructive thinking and the right mental attitude, along with prayer and meditation all play their part in keeping a sound mind in a sound body.

Nature cure believes that violation of the natural laws of nature result in an abnormal condition of the body called disease. Every such violation has repercussions on the human system in the form of lowered vitality, irregularities of the blood and lymph and the accumulation of waste matter and toxins. Thus, a faulty diet doesnot adversely affect the digestive system alone. When toxins accumulate, other organs such as the bowels, kidneys, skin and lungs are overworked and cannot get rid of these harmful substances as quickly as they are produced.

Apart from this, mental and emotional disturbances cause imbalances of the vital electric field within which cell metabolism takes place, producing toxins. When the soil of this electric field is undisturbed, disease-causing germs can live in it without multiplying or producing toxins. It is only when it is disturbed or when the blood is polluted with toxic waste that the germs multiply and become harmful.
