Gandhian Naturopathy: A Critical Appraisal

Author(s):

Author Affiliation: Department of Multi Media and Mass Communication, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi.

 

Abstract: Seeking an alternative to Allopathic Medicine, Mahatma Gandhi, a champion of peace and non-violence, tested natural remedies on himself and his followers throughout his life. This paper revisits the system of Medicine which Gandhi practiced and promoted, what he called Naturopathy or nature-cure. Gandhi’s complex thoughts are often reduced to binaries like Indian versus Western, modern versus traditional, scientific versus irrational, secular versus faith-based. This paper questions these binaries, and attempts to highlight that Gandhian Naturopathy goes beyond them. The paper is an attempt to enrich the understanding of Gandhi’s philosophy through the study of his ideas on Medicine.

Keywords: alternative medicine, health, Mahatma Gandhi, naturopathy.
