Naturopathy-&-Ayurveda

‘Finding Meera’s house will be easy. You will see a bunch of carrots and beetroots on the door!’

‘When a guy comes to see her daughter, Meera will offer him a glass of palak juice and a plateful of raw radish’.

These jokes, at my expense, had sprung from my new-found liking, err, love, err infatuation, err passion for Nature Cure.

A chance encounter with a Naturopath in the one-room Prakruti Jeevan Kendra, had me hooked to Nature Cure-for life. The books in the library there became my Bible and Gita and the words of the Naturopath my Ten Commandments and Upanishads. ‘Madam, fast once a week to get rid of your dandruff’, was the doctor’s first prescription. ‘How is your carrot consumption?’ was his query when I told him of my bleeding gums. ‘squeeze some coriander leaves in water and put a spoonful in each eye’ went his mantra for itchy eyes.

‘I do not have a bottle of Vicks at home’ was perhaps the statement from the Naturopath which made me his firm disciple and avid fan.

From eye care to hair care and simple good health, I drank up all the knowledge in the books there while he cleared all doubts. “Disease is not natural, good health is”, went one hard-hitting aphorism.

The body tends to heals itself if it is allowed to.

Fever and pain are not problems, they are indicators of disturbances in the body and so are our friends.

My kids became guinea pigs. From coughs and colds to boils and tooth ache, I approached the Naturopath, like an eager student. Diet – no sugar, friend stuff, refined flour – for my son and more exotic therapies like enema and steam bath for my daughter…I do not remember with what bribes I stilled the vociferous opposition put up by my daughter but it didn’t matter; I HAD to try out and understand Nature’s ways.

'Smart' Thinking

There are three blondes who are on a road trip.

As they are driving through the desert, their car breaks down. They have no phone to call anyone, so they decide to walk to the nearest city, several miles away.

They each decide to take one thing to make the journey better. The first blonde takes the radio and says, "If we get bored, we can put the radio on and listen to music."

The second blonde decides to take continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, September 02nd, 2014

Do your best to relax more even if you have to work. This will help keep things in perspective. You may be in the grip of an idea you can’t shake. This can be memories of the past. You will feel better if you express your feelings through creative outlets.

New people you meet today are likely to be favorably impressed by your manners, social skills, and, above all, excellent sense of humor. Don’t be surprised if all of this brings you some new opportunities today! Your health is radiant and you are probably looking great. This is an excellent time to plan an evening out with friends or, better yet, a romantic partner.

Some gossip about a friend could reach your ears today and it might seem a bit shocking at first. Money could be involved. However, don’t accept what you hear at face value. Whoever got the rumour going is apt to be less concerned with the truth than serving a personal agenda. Call your friend and try to learn the facts without prying. They’re probably far less dire than the gossip implies.

You are trying too hard to do everything alone. Stop being an island and let people in. Life isn’t an individual sport. Interact with people, participate in events and socialise. It will also boost your confidence. Sometimes, outside events can lead you in a direction that you can neither predict nor imagine.

You are particularly inspired by and sensitive to crisis situations. What that means is that you can’t stand to see other people suffer. Sometimes even you suffer because you don’t allow yourself to do the things you like best and the things that help you feel fulfilled as a person. Why don’t you think about going easier on yourself, just for today? Try it – you might like it!

You’re probably feeling especially sexy, and you might want to take a lover out for a romantic dinner. You would especially enjoy going all out, experimenting with a new outfit, scent, or hairstyle. On a more mundane note, investments of either time or money should pay off today, as could hard work performed in the past. Have a great day!

Some vast changes in your community could take place. They’re positive, for the most part. Today the news should spread widely, and you could be hearing about it from all sides – local newspapers, neighbors, and conversations on the street. The level of excitement in your neighborhood is likely high, and you could get caught up in it. Be prepared for some surprises.

Create room for a new start or major change of direction. What is fun? This is where to pay more attention. The more time you spend with any child you enjoy, the better for both of you. Children should be encouraged to play. You’re being encouraged to play as well.

When you are under stress, be your own best cheerleader. This continues to be a time when may have to do your best within limited circumstances. Friends are loyal, though relationships change in unanticipated ways. Complications and roadblocks can bring unexpected benefits. Indulge in health and beauty treatments. Do not just do things for others.
