Naturopathy in India: Current Status and Future Challenges

Rajiv Rastogi.

Abstract
Naturopathy is an old science based on philosophy founded on natural principles of healing. We find mention of health promotive, disease preventive,
curative and rehabilitative values of different Naturopathy practices in ancient Indian texts. Recognizing and realizing the need for developing naturopathy
system on the basis of its own principles, the Government of India established Central Council for Research in Yoga & Naturopathy (CCRYN), New
Delhi and National Institute of Naturopathy (NIN), Pune, Maharashtra. Approximately 500 Naturopathy hospitals are currently functioning in the
country having indoor and outdoor treatment facilities. These hospitals are engaged in the propagation of positive health, treatment and management of
various life style and psychosomatic disease conditions and are serving the suffering masses.
In this paper the author giving the brief history and present status of naturopathy in India throws light on the future challenges for naturopathy to make
its maximal utilization in the national health care.

Key words: Naturopathy, Life style disorders, Psychosomatic diseases, Evidence- Based Medicine
