Naturopathy is based on a profound philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself given the right circumstances. The fundamentals of Naturopathy are well known and were even practised by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. His therapeutic approach was based on the “healing power of nature.” With the radical changes to this philosophy in the practices of modern medicine, a new system of medicine was born in late 1890s, to be known as Naturopathy and the credit goes to a German physician called Benedict Lust.
Naturopaths primarily treat the person rather than the disease, using life style modification, diet, nutritional supplements and herbal remedies. The body is viewed more than the sum of biochemical processes and the connections between mind and body are highly regarded.

This ancient traditional vedic system of medicine, with a history of more than 5000 years, focuses on the prevention and management of illness by incorporating basic life principles as well as closely relating the human body and it’s physiological and pathological processes to the inherent principles of nature. Ayurveda is considered to be a complete system of medicine in its own right. Ayurveda treats each human as a distinct individual and recognises that it is related to a unique combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics known as the tridoshas – vata, pitta and kapha. The imbalance of these tridoshas can lead to emotional, mental and physical discomfort, as well as illness.
