Naturopathy & Yoga Courses

A naturopath treats his patients using natural techniques. He works by incorporating the forces of nature in the healing process and tries to stay away from surgeries and allopathic medicines. Thus, it is more of an alternate medical practice which believes in body's natural abilities to heal its self.

Different educational programmes are designed with the aim of disseminating the scientific knowledge of nature cure & yoga therapy through the educated people. All India nature cure federation (New Delhi ) and IYA, Trust plans to promote Nature Cure & yoga all over the world promoting Gandhian thought of better health for the last layer of the society .in order to translate this into action an educational programme has been envisaged as detailed in subsequent paragraphs.
