What Naturopathy Is All About

Naturopathy is “the science of nature and its interaction between all its kingdoms”. It studies human physiology so that a person’s physical and mental health is the best it can be.

Its goal is for living beings to be in harmony with the cosmos. It, therefore, covers a very vast field that we will discover at the same time as the profession of naturologist.

Naturopathy or nature healing

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is one of the oldest sciences of the West, already used by Hippocrates, as a synthesis of natural health methods, with priority given to lifestyle hygiene.

Hippocrates took the laws of nature and physiology to “reveal to each person his inner doctor”, that is to say, his self-healing capacities. Indeed, human beings have always naturally treated themselves with:

plants: the plant world with its almost inexhaustible resources capable of relieving our everyday ailments, but also of instilling energy and defending us against external aggressions; water; clay; Fasting;, food: “let your food be your first remedy” (Hippocrates); physical exercise in the open air; massages; life in nature; psychotherapy, meditation.

Hippocrates has his way of expressing things with pedagogy. He teaches moderation: “Everything has its time”, “Do no harm”.
