In a world where modern medicine often focuses on treating symptoms rather than addressing the root cause of health issues, holistic healing offers a refreshing alternative. Holistic healing, also known as natural medicine, takes a comprehensive approach to health, considering the mind, body, and spirit as interconnected and equally important. One of the most prominent methods of holistic healing is Nature Cure, which harnesses the healing power of nature to restore health and balance.

Nature Cure believes in sustaining balance by putting the five natural elements - water, fire, ether, earth, and air into practice through natural therapies. It not only promotes the removal of toxins but also provides relief to the body. 

Let’s delve deeper into the therapies and their benefits linked to each element of nature.

How does it work?

1. Earth 

Diet and Nutrition

Nature Cure emphasizes the importance of a healthy diet as the foundation of good health. It encourages a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, and avoids processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats.

Herbs and Natural Foods 

Nature Cure also utilizes the healing properties of plants and herbs to support the body's natural healing processes. They can be used to address a wide range of health issues, from digestive problems to stress and anxiety.

Grounding therapy

Stress is a major contributor to many health problems, and Nature Cure recognizes the importance of managing stress for overall health and well-being. Techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, and yoga can help reduce stress and promote relaxation.

2. Air

Breathing Exercises

Deep breathing is required to adequately oxygenate the blood, which is supplied to all tissues/ It increases circulation and eliminates wastes promptly. Taking deep breaths is also said to improve longevity. 

  • A peaceful spot with lots of fresh air is required.

  • Sit comfortably, with your spine erect.

  • Breathe in, envisioning air entering your belly and expanding.

  • Repeat until a count of 3. Hold your breath for three counts.

  • Exhale for a count of 3. 

  • Consider air escaping through your tummy.

  • Continue to practice until you reach a count of seven, which includes seven inhalations, seven holds, and seven exhalations.

Remember to do it as per body comfort.

Additionally, frequent physical activity is necessary for optimal health, and Nature Cure promotes a balanced approach to exercise. It emphasizes the value of aerobic activity (walking, swimming, and cycling) as well as strength training in maintaining general health and fitness.

3. Water


Considering our body is made up of 70% of water, water plays a pivotal role in cleansing and healing. During the cleansing and healing, we may face some pains, discomforts, etc. The applications where we make use of water are called HydroTherapy. It is very useful in assisting our body during cleansing and healing because our body is made of more than 70% of water. Water based therapies promote equalisation of the body heat, relief from pain by dispersion of congestions & temporary increase in vitality.

Ways to practice hydrotherapy

  • Spinal Bath

  • Hip Bath

  • Immersion Bath

  • Piecemeal Cold Friction Bath

  • Hot Hand and Foot Bath

  • Abdominal Wet Pack

  • Cooling Wet Pack

4. Fire


Taking the Sun daily powers all life on this earth. Diverse ancient cultures have revered the sun through millennia – both for its ability to enable life, as well as its healing powers. Sunshine is a natural antidepressant, triggers the production of Vitamin D, which is an essential nutrient for stronger teeth and bones, and overall growth. It also promotes health and healing

Begin with regularly taking sunlight for at least 15-20 mins. 

5. Space


Fasting is the process of providing rest to the digestive system, so the body can channel its energies on other essential tasks like nutrient assimilation and toxin elimination. When our body is continuously working on digestion, it doesn’t get a chance to focus on other essential tasks like assimilating nutrients, repairing old cells and waste, and toxin elimination. When you fast, you help the body divert its energies and resources from digestion to other key tasks like healing, revitalizing, maintenance and most importantly, eliminating the toxin residues from the body.

Types of fasting

  • Intermittent Fasting

  • Juice Fasting

  • Fruits Fasting

  • Water Fasting

  • Grain Free Fasting

  • Half Day Fasting


Nature Cure is a holistic approach to health that recognizes the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit. By focusing on improving overall health and supporting the body's natural healing processes, Nature Cure can help address the underlying causes of health issues and restore balance and vitality. Whether you're looking to improve your overall health or address a specific health concern, Nature Cure offers a natural and effective approach to healing.
