Naturopathy derives its root in ayurveda & propounds in the idea of five great elements that constitue the animate world. It believes that in positive health, all these five elements must remain in prefect balance & we suffer only due to aberration from natural way of life that creates imbalance. In the process of healing, it believes that human body has an innate power to heal itself from within and hence does not require any extrenal aganecy for help. Drug has no place in naturapthy as it strives to imbibe the innate power of the body to face eventualities. Life style modification is therefore of key importance.

There are five main elements nature comprises of, which are Jal (Water), Vayu (Air), Akash (Sky), Agni (Fire) and Prithvi (Earth). These together are also known as Panchamahabhuta, which are also one of the chief attributes that form our body.
In this way, Naturopathy is more of a refined way of living life in sync with nature than being a mere healing science. It leads a holistic approach and balances the elements back to their Prakruti (natural state) and helps live a healthy, disease-free life.
