FAQ - Ipcowala Naturopathy & Yoga Centre

Scope of Treatment at INYC:

Anyone who believes in the holistic health science and wishes to benefit from natural and drugless disease management therapies can rely on the safe and effective treatment modalities of naturopathy.

The nature has given wonderful powers to the body to heal itself and regain health, if proper environment is provided. By using this inherent strength, the body can be rid of all the sicknesses and health can be restored. This is the fundamental principle of nature cure. Naturopathy aims to promote holistic wellness by restoring the body’s biological, psychological and structural balance. When patients do not respond to conventional medicine, naturopathy is able to treat them by developing a patient-centric plan that effectively addresses their unique problems.
