Abstract: Naturopathy is purely a drugless and non-surgical medical system. Dr. John Scheel coined the word ‘Naturopathy’ in the year 1895. Naturopathy was propagated and popularized in the western world by Dr. Benedict Lust. In India, Dronamraju Venkatachalapathy Sarma brought this system into the limelight by translating three books of Louis Kuhne into Telugu in 1897. Telugu monthly magazine named Prakriti was published on 1st August 1919 at Bezawada under the editorship of Narishetty Hanumaiah. ‘The Indian Naturopath’ journal was published in English (as a supplement to Prakriti) in 1920 to spread naturopathy science knowledge in India, The present paper throws light on history of the first Naturopathy English journal, i.e., “The Indian Naturopath,” its origin, role in Naturopathy science, movement and development in India and abroad.
