In recent times Naturopathy courses have been recognized as a well known medical study. Naturopathy is an ancient medicinal practice with the help of plants as well as other natural elements. In India, naturopathy is commonly referred to as Ayurveda. There are many voluntary organizations and NGO’s that have come up with their Naturopath and Yoga Health homes and degree colleges.
Spread across the country starting from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh to Gujarat, Chattisgarh and Karnataka, these colleges are aimed to help students pursue higher education in Naturopathy. Besides, emphasizing on naturopathy philosophy and yoga, naturopathy courses also concentrate on clinical modalities and tools needed for establishing a fruitful practice.
The naturopathy colleges in India are home to practical, theoretical and clinical facilities and leave no stone unturned to train students in all dimensions. Students enrolling for the naturopathy course need to concentrate on multiple holistic treatment modalities.
