Naturopathy & Yoga
is a journey, travel it well."
|No matter who,
what or where we are or do, we only have one body to live
this life with. So in order to have a truly enjoyable
and rich life, we need to treat our physical body well
and at the same time nurture and grow our spiritual and
emotional being as well - the key word is BALANCE. If
we FEEL GOOD, then we will LOOK GOOD too.
aims to explplain about NATUROPATHY & YOGA.
Natural healing remedies can be found in all corners of
the earth, as from time unknown, mankind has depended
on nature to help heal the mind and spirit. The advent
of modern medicine has taken the attention away from natural
healing remedies, but the latter is still practiced and
considered a better option by many.
we know what we are doing to our system. As for prescription
or over the counter drugs, to counter that occasional
headache, migraine or bodily ache or pain, there is still
some uncertainty attached, unlike for the Naturopathy.
In the short term, drugs may alleviate the pain but what
long term effect the chemical substances have on the body
is yet generally unknown. So rather then subject ourself
to that mental torture and uncertainty, going the NATUROPATHY
way is certainly more sensible and less stressful.
|There are two
roads to achieving this balance, the first via the aid
of medication, drugs and other artificial means. The other
is using all NATURAL HEALING remedies and methods.The
former is very common and well used, whilst the NATURAL
HEALING way, which is also known as NATUROPATHY, is a
little more unknown. Personally, our first instinct is
to look to NATURAL HEALING remedies first, should our
body or spirit be in need of healing or nurturing.
Naturopathy & Yoga |:::
cures diseases completely and save money not to be wasted
on Medicines. Nature Cure is very much similar to our
Tradition system of healing "Ayurveda"; it also
follows the same Principle of "Element Balance"
or "Tatva Chikitsa". However, the working way
is a little but different. Ayurveda utilises Herbs in
the form of medicines and Naturopathy utilises the same
in its Natural Form.
|The basic principle
of Nature Cure or Naturopathy is to balance the five elements
of Human body, which are also known as "Pancha Mahabhuta"Naturopathy
believes that the human body owes its existence to Nature's
five elements - Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Ether - a
composite representation of all forces of Nature. The
element Earth stands for the solid structure like bones.
Water is representative of the fluids like blood, lymph,
etc. Air represents the breath of life, Fire symbolises
the vitality and Ether or Space personifies the reflection
of the human spirit - Soul - the unseen aspect of the
human entity. In positive health, each of these elements
is in equilibrium and well balanced. Any disturbance in
this equilibrium due to any cause leads to acummulations
of toxins and morbidity which manifest in diseases.
is a holistic health care system, which believes in the
innate healing power and natural rejuvation. It is the
only drugless alternative system of medicine, which corrects
the imbalance caused by excessive indulgence and restores
inner harmony without the aid of external agent. Body
is given complete opportunities to heal by itself with
the aid of natural treatment modalities to prevent the
disease and for the maintenance of good health.
& Yoga are like two wheels of a cart. Naturopathy
heals the diseases while Yoga maintains health. Both practiced
together, helps in keeping the body at harmony. Both are
Preventive, Curative and Educative to a person. They both
play a vital role in improving the quality of life by
a positive promotion of health and help to function with
healthy body & sound mind.
For The Body, Mind & Spirit |:::
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."
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.
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
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).
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.
|The first written
records of yoga started around 200 BC in the Indus Valley
civlisation in South Asia. There are several schools of
yoga that are popular, these differ in the West (Kriya
Yoga and Kundalini Yoga are popular) and the East (Hatha
Yoga). 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:
|| Rules for successful
living in society

and purifying self
for physical and mental balance

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.
