Ailments a Naturopathy Centre can cure

Naturopathy is a system of medicine that believes the human body has the innate power to heal itself. It is a drug-free medicinal approach that believes in a full-body approach. During the treatment process, naturopathy uses the five elements of nature – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Sky (also known as Panchakarma).

Naturopathy can treat various ailments, including:


Allergies are one of the many conditions that naturopathy can cure. Many treatments in Naturopathy help reduce allergies and protect the patients from getting affected by them again. 

Autoimmune Disorders

Autoimmune disorders are conditions where your immune system damages the healthy cells in your body instead of protecting them. At naturopathic centres, naturopathy doctors focus on changing the lifestyle of individuals and reducing the autoimmune antibodies in the body that contribute to various kinds of autoimmune diseases. 

Extreme Fatigue

Extreme stress causes chronic fatigue, although there can be other reasons as well. In naturopathy, chronic fatigue is treated by controlling the stress level in the individual and helping boost the immune system so that the body can fight the virus and the disease in the body by itself. 

Gastrointestinal Issues

In naturopathy, gastrointestinal problems focus on changing diets and lifestyle habits and supplementing the body with digestive enzymes. It helps to improve the symptoms of conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut syndrome, and inflammatory bowel disease. Explore our GI Disorders healing package here.

What is ‘Health’ in Naturopathy ?

Good health is the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not just the absence of a disease or infirmity. But, in naturopathy, an individual can be considered healthy if the elements that guide the body (natural elements like Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Sky) are in harmony and function according to the constructive principles of nature. That is why the treatments in naturopathy focus on curing the ailment without any external force and only by taking aid from the elements of nature.
