Naturopathy is an alternative, yet holistic, healing modality which works on the principle of revitalizing the human bodies ‘vital force’ in order to restore balance, harmony, and good health. The vital force is something which differentiates humans from inanimate objects.
Nature and our vital force go hand in hand. Therefore, the principal logic with which a Naturopath or Naturopathic doctor (N.D) works is that all the remedies for illness or disease are available within nature. For example, the common cold and fever can be easily treated with a dose of a naturally available substance.
Naturopathy and diet are also closely related. A lot of Naturopaths are also practising dieticians. The right food goes a long way in maintaining our ‘vital force’, and therefore, a particular diet plan can also be used to cure as well as prevent a vast range of health problems.
