“Every acute disease is a result of the cleansing and healing effect of nature. If you suppress the acute conditions by drugs or by any other means, you are simply laying the foundation for chronic diseases.” Dr. Lindlahr
Naturopathy is the Pathy people are now moving towards to find a solution to their chronic health-related issues. Naturopathy is not a medicine or treatment, it’s a way of life. Going away from nature is our problem so going towards nature is our way to find the solution.

The Center is run with the mission to provide a nature cure an alternative therapy with a scientific and holistic approach and to develop awareness towards a healthy lifestyle in the society.
They have published various ebooks on various diseases.
These are not top ten centers based on any research or survey but I have selected based on Tripadvisor, Google, and other reviews.
Check out tariff plans, your specific needs, admission requirements, and the temperature of the place before deciding.
My experience with Jindal Nature Cure, Bangalore was very good, but it was about 23 years back. Many others have come up during all these years. Once in a life, even if you are not suffering from any disease, it is worth to visit Naturopathy centers for a few days. It could be the beginning of a new way of life.
“It is the health is the real wealth, not the pieces of gold and silver.” Mahatma Gandhi
