Diet are a subject of the greatest importance in all system of medicine but in naturopathy it are of over significance because most of the treatment consists in cleansing the system through diet. The basic principle of dietetics is that the body has to be ped like an engine, which needs fuel. Food is the fuel for body but just as there various types of engines diseal for the trucks. Aft for the planes and petrol for your scooter the human body and its needs also need special types of food according to its conditions. If you are a robust individual without any constitutional disorders you may take any type of food condition special diets have to be taken.

Naturopathy believes that the correct approach the eating’s that a person should “eat to live” and not “live to eat” eating should be a necessary function as breathing is but most people regard it as a means of gratifying their desire for the nice things life. By tradition “nice” things are supposed to be those which give pleasure and satisfy your taste buds but most nature has a different code.

You would see that most things, which has a bitter taste, are good for health bitter gourd is one such example. Recent researcher have shown that the vegetable plays a vital role in activating the pancreas the malfunctioning of which leads to diabetes the fruit of the neem tree is a great purifier of blood inspite of its bitter taste. Another curious fact is that in most vegetable and fruits the rind (commonly thought to be unnecessary and hence remove) contains all the vitamins and the mineral salt so necessary for the maintenance of health. A misunderstanding of the vital ignore the facts state above foods are refined to such an extent that their value is lost even if they become more pleasing to the taste buds and the eyes.

In the process of preparing food we tend to loss many of the vitamins. An example is boiling of vegetable most of which tend to use their value if over boiled the polishing of rice and the refining of sugar are other examples where the preference for a nicer look leads to destruction of their essential value as foods.

As is known to everybody there are certain trace elements in our body, which are required to keep us in good health. Any lowering of their small amounts in the system will give rise to many disorders for example the destruction of iron in the blood will give rise to Anemia and weakness should deficiency leads to many disorders. Thanks to the pioneering work of the masters of nature cure we know that the artificial foods found in so much abundance in the food stores are in a great measure responsible for many of the disorders that inflict themselves on their users.

A large number of disease ascribed to the various organisms by the traditional practitioners of medicine are in fact due to deficiency of vital elements in the food that people take. They try to make up the deficiency (if all they are able to establish the nexus between the deficiency and the disease) by administration of those substances prepared in the laboratories but another sad fact which they are unable to confront is that elements found in nature are more easily digested by the human body that the ersatz substances passing off as vitamins or mineral medicine that the body needs a continuous supply of mineral salt and vitamins which are found in many nature an unspoiled foods. They not only make up the deficiency but also cleanse and purify the body ridding it of toxins that give rise to various diseases.

A possible explanation for the state of affairs is the preoccupation of modern medicine with the laboratory. Unless the technician is able to put his litmus paper in a substance or look at it through his micros cope he refuses to believe its existence or efficialy. Even where tests prove the effective role that some drugs or fruits play in the healing of certain diseases the shadow of disbelieve does not leave and then efforts are made to prepare the substances and minerals found in natural foods synthetically in the laboratory. It has been proved times without number that the synthetics vitamins are not easily digested by the system as those which are contained in some fruits and vegetable through the pseudo scientists insist on using them.

The medical professions the traditionalists have not yet properly assessed the role of the mineral salt which vital to the functioning of the body. These substances are available in the quantities needed by the body in fresh fruits and vegetable the cardinal role-played by these substances is that of purifying the body an ejecting the toxins collected there. Too much of refining of foods in the processing and canning of foodstuffs destroys the essential vitamins and minerals. Even the addition of synthetic vitamins and minerals does not help. Another fallacy which modern medicine suffers from is the measuring of food value in term’s calories. Energy is something fundamental to the organism and can be enhanced because of the ability foodstuffs taken. If the foodstuffs lack the essential elements, which should be present in them, the vital force of the body is not enhanced.

On the other hand it eight be reduced because of lack of essential elements if the feeding habits are not in tune with nature. A system burdened with unnatural foods loses its capacity to fight disease it may become a victim of toxins fight which show themselves in the from of various diseases. That is healing by fasting his patients and when fasting is followed by fruits and vegetable in their nature from recovery must ensure. An all fruit diet is the lack of which makes the body susceptible to disorders of various kinds. An all fruit diet cleanses the system of all toxins and aids recovery. An enema is recommended during the period of fasting so that the bowels are kept clean. (They are not likely to move on their own since the solid food is prohibited). In some cases a restricted diet consisting of fruits & salad is recommended. That introduces variety in ones diet and then salads and vegetable eaten as salad are not mere adjuncts to ones food as is commonly believed but are the mainstay of health as they supply calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, Silicon, and other trace elements so essential for a healthy body.

Milk is a complete food and one can live on it without in anyway imparing ones health. But it must not be boiled and should be taken fresh. It is recommended after the all fruit diet has been taken for some days. After a protracted fast an all milk diet is usually recommended. An all milk diet should however be taken under expert guidance. In this the total intake of milk is increased to six quarts a day. In India’s ancient system of medicine it was known as “dugdha ralpa” and was recommended in certain conditions. Pernicious anaemia, diabetes, arthritis, neurasthenia and many other diseases have been cured by milk therapy followed by a long fast. By means of fasts the all fruit diet the restricted diet (fruits and salad s) the fruit and milk diet the full milk diet and various naturopathy puts his patients on the road to recovery after which a balanced diet is recommended. The main point to be noted is that 75% of the diet of a patient should consist of alkaline the toxins of the act as cleansing agents for the toxins of the body. Meat is considered by most naturopathy as an unnatural food because of the dange of its putrefaction in its intestines. If it has to be taken it should be of freshly killed animals. In most cases of illness meat should be totally avoided.

Refined foodstuffs like sugar & white bread polished rice boiled potatoes etc. are acid forming and should be avoided as far as possible. Brown sugar whole meal bread unpolished rice and potatoes with their feel intact are recommended as they are less acid forming for proteins the naturopathy depends on eggs cheese milk and nuts saturated fats like ghee are an abomination for him. Coconut oil and other unsaturated fats like sesame are recommended.
