for preparing vegetable are allowed.
Non-vegetable diet is hot debate for naturopath.

enough of supplement from vegetarian food and that person is
non-vegetarian in nature some non-vegetarian preparation can be advised.
But if a person is strictly vegetarian it is not compulsory to have
Medication is suddenly discontinued.
Drugs and medicine are gradually withdrawn as per response of patient to
treatment of naturopathy. After proper relevant investigation dosage are
