Understanding Naturopathy & Yoga

Naturopathy For The Body, Mind & Spirit

"Naturopathy: a distinct system of non-invasive healthcare and health assessment in which neither surgery nor drugs are used, dependence being placed only on education, counseling, naturopathic modalities and natural substances, including without limitation, the use of foods, food extracts, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, digestive aids, botanical substances, topical natural substances, air, water, heat, cold, sound, light, the physical modalities of magnetic therapy, naturopathic non-manipulative bodywork and exercise to help stimulate and maintain the individual's intrinsic self-healing processes."

What is traditional Naturopathy ?

The term "naturopathy" originated in the late 19th century however the practice has been around long before that. The philosophy of Naturopathy is to heal by cleansing the body of toxins and further strengthening it rather than curing a specific disease. The goal was to stimulate the body to speed up its own healing powers. Traditional Naturopaths believe that the human body heals itself naturally when the right conditions are met - proper diet, pure water, fresh air, sunlight, exercise and rest. Once that condition is met, anyone can maintain good health naturally without the aid of drugs, medication or other artificial stimulants. Naturopathy focuses on the whole person, rather than just the specific problems he or she is experiencing.

What is not Naturopathy ?

As the philosophy is to help the body heal itself naturally, therefore Naturopathy does not make diagnosis of problems or diseases, neither does it prescribe medicines or drugs or support invasive surgery.

What is Yoga ?

Its a practice of physical exercise, breath control, relaxation, positive thinking and meditation; with the end goal being to create a harmony or balance in the body, mind and the environment. It is a low impact activity (less stress on the joints). It teaches you to breath properly (pranayama) whilst doing different postures or poses (asanas).

Besides being a tool for calming and relaxing the mind and toning the body, yoga has also been used as a complementary medicine to treat problems ranging from depression to anxiety disorders, cancers, heart disease and others.

They adapt some or sometimes all of the 8 limbs of Asthanga Yoga as described by the original Patanjali Asthanga Yoga records of 200 BD. The 8 limbs are:

Focus of Naturopathy

Naturopathy's approach to healthcare therefore is preventative - it aims to balance the body so that illness is less likely to occur in the future. When consulting a naturopath, he/she will want to know about a patient's diet, lifestyle, family background and environment, as well as the history of their complaint or illness. This range of information is important to the practitioner, who seeks to discover the cause of illness and treat the whole person, rather than target the symptoms alone.
