BA (Naturopathy)

COURSE OUTLINE

Naturopathy is a type of medicine science that uses an array of pseudoscientific practices to treat patients by addressing the physical, lifestyle, environmental, and emotional aspects of health. It uses a combination of medicines that are termed as natural or self healing. The therapies and methods are, generally, based on vitalism and folk medicine, rather than evidence-based medicine.

Naturopathic practice relies on unscientific notions, often leading naturopaths to diagnosis and treatments that have no factual merit. This advanced 3 year course is designed to produce trained professionals in naturopathic practices who can help the community in curing from diseases in more natural ways.

The course includes training in the fields of human anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, pathology, yoga, diet therapy and several other manipulative therapies used for body healing.
