DIET THERAPY

Diet is an important component of a comprehensive naturopathic healthcare plan. Food is regarded as medicine in many systems of medicine but this is more obvious and apparent in Naturopathy. Naturopathy promotes and encourages the natural food, i.e., the food which is provided by nature and is consumed essentially in the natural form. The concept of diet is little different in modern medicine. In Naturopathy food is classified as acidic or alkaline, live or dead food, eliminative, soothing, constructive, vegetarian or non-vegetarian, liquid, fruit, and mono fruit diet, etc. Naturopathy gives more emphasis on raw food rather than cooked food. According to it, to remain healthy 80 % of the food items should be alkaline, i.e., uncooked and only 20 % food items should be acidic, i.e., cooked. In Yoga, the food is classified as Sattvik, Rajasik and Tamasik.

These diets are classified in three ways as below mentioned:

    • Eliminative Diet: Liquids-Lemon, Citric juices, Tender Coconut water, Vegetable soups, Buttermilk, Wheatgrass juices etc.
    • Soothing Diet: Fruits, Salads, Boiled/Steamed Vegetables, Sprouts, Vegetable chutney etc.
    • Fasting Diet: Juice fasting, fruit fasting & raw diet fasting .These ways of diet rotation helps us to detoxify & cleanse inner system of body which relevantly results as a cure to our health seekers.

Being alkaline, these diets help in improving health, purifying the body and rendering it immune to disease. To this end, a proper combination of food is necessary.
