Naturopathic medicine (Naturopathy) Is a school of medical philosophy and practice that seeks to improve health and treat disease chiefly by assisting the body’s innate capacity to recover from illness and injury. It believes in the inherent healing powers of nature and uses non-invasive methods of intervention to create a suitable environment to facilitate the healing of the body by itself. Naturopathic practice may include a broad array of different modalities, including manual therapy, hydrotherapy, herbalism, acupuncture, counseling, iridology, aromatherapy, nutritional counseling and so on. Naturopathic medicine is a comprehensive system of health care within the complementary and alternative medicine world that incorporates many treatment modalities. Yoga Is an ancient science which helps in overall personality development and is an effective tool in prevention of diseases and maintaining health. With its very basic concepts of equilibrium between body and mind, the global scientists in medicine have approved this system as a healing science. The integral approach of yoga therapy brings balance at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
