Article abstract

Hydrotherapy, exercise therapy, nutrition therapy, lifestyle regulation therapy and phytotherapy are the domains of classical naturopathic medicine. Of these, the lifestyle regulation therapy is to be concidered as the predominant element overlapping with all other domains. Simultaneously, a number of naturopathic therapies are part of a balneological concept.
