Naturopathy is a holistic system of treatment of mind and body that makes use of natural substances and elements such as air, fire, water, and sunshine. The system considers the human body as having exceptional self-healing capabilities and it focuses on stimulating the body’s own defenses. According to naturopathy, disease occurs when the body’s natural recovery processes are hindered. Naturopaths may employ several means such as homeopathy, massage, diet changes, etc in an effort to provide the right environment for the body to heal itself. Naturopathy took concrete shape as an alternative medicine system in Europe but it has been practiced in different forms across cultures.
