That is why before administering the nature cure treatment on patients, doctors first educate the clients about their health and disease problems. Regular detoxification draws good results: If toxins are not flushed out effectively out of the body the whole internal system of our body turns inactive and inflicts it with serious diseases. That is why nature cure therapists focus more on eliminative organs in our body.

Hydro therapy, for instance, activates the body; chromo therapy invokes the colour vibrancy of the system. Whichever colour deficiency you have in your body, it can be restored by focusing patient to sun rays. For e.g. Excess red indicates the hyperactive nature of the patient. So we neutralise it by applying blue. To administer this treatment we use chromo-thermoleum machine. While giving chromo treatment, we serve chromo diet to the patient. The diet depends upon the day and night timing. Colour charged oils are also available. For sleep disorders among elders and for patients suffered from psychological problems, we apply chromo therapy. When it comes to yoga, there is great bondage between yoga and nature cure. Yoga believes body is powerful. Naturopathy also believes in the same philosophy. The blend of yoga and nature cure will derive wonders in regard to health.
