The nature cure system adopts methods of cure, which are in conformity with the constructive principles of nature and aims at the readjustment of the human system from abnormal to normal conditions and functions. Such methods remove from the system, the accumulation of toxic matter and poisons without injuring the vital parts of the body in any way. They also stimulate the organs of elimination and purification to function better.

Regulation of diet is the first and foremost step to cure diseases. To get rid of accumulated toxins and restore the equilibrium of the system, it is desirable to completely exclude acid-forming foods, including proteins, starches and fats, for a week or more and to confine the diet to fresh fruits, which will disinfect the stomach and alimentary canal. If the body is overloaded with morbid matter, as in acute disease, a complete fast for a few days may be necessary for the elimination of toxins. Fruit juice may, however, be taken during a fast. A simple rule is do not eat when you are sick, stick to a light diet of fresh fruits. Wait for the return of the usual healthy appetite. Loss of appetite is Nature`s warning that no burden should be placed on the digestive organs. Alkaline foods such as raw vegetables and sprouted whole grain cereals may be added after a week of only fruit diet.

Another important factor in the nature cure treatments of diseases is to stimulate the vitality of the body. This can be achieved by using water in various ways and at varying temperatures in the form of packs or baths. The application of cold water, especially to the abdomen, the seat of most diseases, and to the sexual organs, through a cold sitting (hip) bath immediately lowers body heat and stimulates the nervous system. In the form of wet packs, hydrotherapy offers a simple nature cure treatment of abating fevers and reducing pain and inflammation, without any harmful side effects. Warm water applications, on the other hand, are relaxing.

Airbath, Sunbath, massage and exercise are the other useful methods of curing diseases. Air and sunbaths revive dead skin and help maintain it. Exercise, especially yogic asanas, promotes inner health and harmony and helps eliminate all tension: physical, mental and emotional. Massage tones up the nervous system and quickens blood circulation and the metabolic process.

Thus a well-balanced diet, sufficient physical exercise, the observation of the other laws of well-being such as fresh air, plenty of sunlight, pure drinking water, scrupulous cleanliness, adequate rest and right mental attitude can ensure proper health and prevent disease. | Home | Sitemap | Contact Us
