As a result more and more people are opting for nature cure or naturopathy. Naturopathy is a technique of treatment aimed to treat human pain, injury and disease by using natural elements like air, water, fire, earth and space.

An introduction to various alternative therapies in Naturopathy:
Naturopaths normally use therapies that are non toxic and natural. Naturopathic treatments are frequently implemented to complement conventional treatments prescribed by doctors. This helps the patient to get an overall treatment, which is most appropriate for the medical condition.
According to the methods of naturopathy, there are certain conditions that result in ill health. One such condition is accumulation of waste materials and toxins in the body. Lowered energy level or vitality is also considered a condition for ill health. Another condition is abnormal composition of blood and body fluids. Psychological and emotional disturbances are two major causes for health problems. At times the source of disease can be hereditary too. Another condition commonly found is maladjustment of ligaments, muscles and bones. The most common cause is building up of germs, parasites, toxic wastes and bacteria in the body.
Naturopathy takes in various forms of therapy including neurotherapy, electrotherapy, mechanotherapy, psychotherapy, thalmotherapy, artificial dilation, mineral baths, orthopedic gymnastics and auricular manipulation. A naturopath at times applies one or more specified nutritional, physiological, manual, mechanical or phytotherapeutic methods depending on the nature of the disease. The main aim of naturopathy and a naturopath is to remove all obstacles from the normal functioning of the body.
The states adjoining the Himalyas in the north and the south Indian states, especially Kerala, are well known for offering naturopathic cures and ayurvedic therapies. The naturopathic treatments in these states attract a large number of tourists and help in promoting tourism in India.
