Theraputic Fasting

Therapeutic fasting is a modified fast, including vegetable soups, freshly-squeezed fruit and herbal tea with a small about of honey, as well as plenty of water. These supplements ‘boost’ the fasting metabolism by stimulating the burning of fat reserves and facilitating the sparing use of body proteins. At the same time, natural vitamins and minerals are supplied.

Manipulative Therapies

Manipulative therapies offered in our naturopathy department helps in relaxation of body, mind and soul. It tones up the nervous system, influences respiration and quickens the elimination of poisons and waste material from the body through the various eliminative organs such as the lungs, skin, kidneys and bowels. It also boosts blood circulation and metabolic processes. A massage removes facial wrinkles, helps to fill out hollow cheeks and neck and eases stiffness, sore muscles and numbness.

Theories behind what massage might do include blocking nociception (gate control theory), activating the parasympathetic nervous system which may stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, preventing fibrosis or scar tissue, increasing the flow of lymph, and improving sleep but such effects are yet to be supported by well designed clinical studies.

Manipulative therapies include:

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of water, both internally and externally and at varying
temperatures, for health purposes. Also known as water therapy or “water cures,” hydrotherapy includes such therapeutic treatments as saunas, steam baths, foot baths, contrast therapy, sitz baths, and colonic cleansing. People use hydrotherapy to treat many illnesses and conditions, including acne; arthritis; colds; depression; headaches; stomach problems; joint, muscle, and nerve problems; sleep disorders; and stress. People also use it for relaxation and to maintain health.

Disease is due to blockage are imbalance of energy (Qi) flow in the body (yin and yang balance). Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic energy points on your body by which body can heal by it self.

Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers or any blunted objects to press key points called as ‘Acu Points’ (Energy stored points) on the surface rhythmically on the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities.

Cupping therapy

Cupping is a therapy used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to remove stagnation and stimulate the flow of qi (chi). Qi is the free flow of vital energy circulating through the body and the world around us, if the qi is disrupted or disturbed, it can create stagnation (blockages) or imbalances in the body.
The benefits of cupping include local pain relief and muscle relaxation. Cupping improves overall health by removing the energy blockages that TCM practitioners identify as barriers to the flow of healthy energy or qi. For athletes, cupping may help increase blood flow to a particular muscle region or help reduce pain. Numerous athletes from the Olympics in Rio 2016 used cupping. This was easily seen by circular markings on some of the U.S. swim team members.

Moxa

According to alternative medicine practitioners, the heat generated during moxibustion helps increase the flow of vital energy throughout the body via certain pathways. In traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating the flow of chi is considered essential to achieving health and wellness. In fact, this approach to healthcare is based on the belief that blockages in the flow of chi contribute to physical and mental health problems.
