Naturopathy needs govt support: Expert
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, April 2
Naturopathy experts are sore over the ‘callous attitude’ of the state as well as the Central government towards promoting science. They feel that the science of naturopathy, which teaches us to live a healthy life, is being neglected.

Though experts impart training to practising naturopaths, doctors and ayurveda practitioners, government's support was must in promoting it, they say.

Dr Babu Joseph, director of the National Institute of Naturopathy, Pune, who was here to deliver a lecture at a seminar, said according to this science, nature was the only healer. Fasting, consumption of water, application of mud, sunrays, deep breathing etc were useful for a healthy living.

Dr Joseph has been instrumental in establishing various institutions and centres of excellence with satisfactory results for restoring good health without medicines.

He said the science did not have enough government support, funds, well-trained and experienced persons, coverage by medical claim, reimbursement of expenses and training facilities of nursing staff.
