Naturopathy deals with the healing power of nature since it believes that all healing powers are within your body. This means that within every human organism there is a healing energy, which includes our immune system in the fuller sense of both the physical and psyche, which is responsible for our wellness and our ability to heal and maintain health. Since we fall ill only when we go against nature, the cause of diseases (toxins) is expelled from the body to cure it. Fasting has been described as natures way to recover. A thorough rest, which includes fasting, is the most favorable condition in which an ailing body can purify and recoup itself. Following this first premise is the second, that the therapies used to support and stimulate this healing power of nature must be in the gentlest, least invasive, most efficient manner possible. The third naturopathic premise is to diagnose and treat the cause.
