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.

Thought for the day!

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.”


-Martin Luther King, Jr

Your Fortune For Today
Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Today is an excellent day for you, one in which you’ll find a great deal of strength in your emotions. Trust that your instincts are serving you well. You have nothing to lose by following your heart. This is an important time for you to rekindle the dreams that you’ve let smolder. Bring more of your fantasy world into your everyday life.

Your natural warmth and loving nature should be more apparent than usual today. You’re likely to attract new people, both men and women, into your aura. Perhaps old friends you haven’t seen for a while suddenly reappear on the scene. This is an excellent time to plan a social event or invite a friend to lunch. You might also want to fix yourself up and plan a romantic evening!

Some people in your life look up to you and trust your opinions. If you are asked for advice, consider the situation carefully and answer with great care. Trust your intuition because your hunches are generally correct. Stressful confrontations can give rise to misunderstandings and a tendency to be deceptive.

Events today can be stressful. It is important not to be sucked into other people’s worries or fears. Approach life with courage and optimism. You can handle new jobs with ease. If you want to be different, you have to make a commitment to change. Stick to you guns.

A contract of some kind, perhaps involving the home, might need some careful consideration today. You could find it a little difficult to understand, as it could be full of fine print and legalese. Don’t be afraid to ask someone with a little more savvy to explain what you’re trying to read. It’s important that you know all the ins and outs before signing anything, for your own peace of mind, if nothing else.

Come out of serious mode for a day and let yourself laugh. Sponsor a game night at your home and invite some good friends over to play cards and nibble on snacks until midnight. This is a day to have fun, so let loose and be free to express yourself in the best way you see fit. Realize how much power you have in your jovial nature.

This is a day for fun, drama, and celebration. Even if you have a long list of responsibilities, be open to making life more colourful and enjoyable. You may startle your family with what seems like a sudden or unexpected move. Investigate thoroughly any proposed purchase or major change.

While other people may be confused and distressed, you’re actually the one with all the answers. Indeed, you’re best equipped to deal with the difficult situations that are likely to arise on a day like this. You have the ability to see through thick walls that others erect as barriers. Nothing will stop your penetrating eyes from seeing someone else’s deceit.

A temporary separation from someone close to you could have you reflecting on the good times you’ve spent together, especially over the past few weeks. You’re likely to talk with him or her on the phone. You’re feeling a lot of warmth and affection toward everyone around you, but a little sad as well, particularly when you think of those far away. Call them up! They’ll be glad to hear from you.
