Also discussed in their own module, are the benefits of detoxing, fasting, and exercising, when done correctly.

The course then moves onto the natural healing systems of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda and the practical knowledge of how to apply naturopathy to treat specific conditions.
