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.

Disorder in the Court Room

ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death.
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his
sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: He's twenty, much like your IQ.

ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All of them. The live ones continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Today brings opportunities to break free and do things differently. Some may be inspired to play tricks on others. Anything that distracts you from harsh realities can be a relief. Listen to the advice of good friends. It is risky to gamble. Do your best to keep your commitments and be on time.

Love is in the air today as cupid has his arrow aimed at you! Single people are likely to meet their soul mate today while couples can definitely expect a new fire in their relationships. So take a day off work and look around…you may meet your ‘the one’!

Your mind is especially sharp. You’re logical and objective by nature. However, today you’re likely to find that your thinking is more influenced by feeling than usual. This is a positive development. It demonstrates that your intuition is operating at a high level, so don’t fight it. This is definitely the day to follow your heart rather than your head.

In spite of the leaps and bounds you’ve taken over the last several months, a slump could set in as you start to doubt your ability to attain your goals. A disheartening and unexpected setback may have occurred, but you’ve never let this sort of thing stop you before. Don’t fall into this trap now. Brace yourself, reassess your methods, and get back in the saddle.

This could be one of those days in which you feel like you just can’t get anything right. In an effort to appease other people, you may think you have to make some adjustments that make you feel uneasy. This uncomfortable feeling could turn into nervousness, restlessness, and eventually anger. Don’t feel like you need to be the one to make any sacrifices at this time.

This is a lucky day to improve your home or do research to find a better place to live. Confidence supports success. Make sure to not get so caught up in your money- making tasks that you forget to relax and pay attention to loved ones. You need to remember that it’s the simple pleasures that are the most rewarding.

This is one of those days when most everything should move in your favour. It’s an especially good time for staying in close touch with people who share your interests. It is also a good idea to step up and find support for a cause the will benefit the community.

A number of invitations to social events could come your way today, some from people you really don’t know well. Don’t pass them up, however. You could make some fortunate contacts or even some new friends at these parties. You enjoy being around people, but today you might find it a bit tedious. Your heart is with your family. You’re probably looking forward to being at home and cuddling with a romantic partner.

Stop and pay attention if you have been talking less and less to someone close because you fear their negative reaction. A sense of walking on eggshells around another person is a sign something is wrong. Seek expert advice if you feel you cannot talk to the person in question.
