Some additional information on naturopathy is as follows.

According to Ministry of AYUSH, naturopathy is an art and science of healthy living and a drugless system of healing based on well founded philosophy. It has its own concept of health and disease and also principle of treatment. Naturopathy is a very old science, whic has a number of references in our Vedas and other ancient texts.

Naturopathy as a system of use of natural remedies is assumed to help the body heal itself based on the precept of vitalisms. It also incorporated many therapies, including herbs, massage, acupressure, acupuncture, steam bath, mud bath, exercises, and nutritional counseling.

However, the mainstream medical science treats naturopathy as an alternative medicine that employs pseudoscientific practices rather than evidence-based medical procedures.
