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.

Your Fortune For Today
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

There is a great deal of unexpected communication coming your way today, but be careful about the people you trust. There’s an element of fantasy factored into the picture. This might cause some disruption if you automatically accept everything at face value. Make sure you check your sources at least twice before proceeding.

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.

You’re feeling especially healthy, energetic, and attractive today, and some friends may suddenly see you in a new light. This could bring a valuable boost in self-confidence. New careers that pay more and offer more of a challenge are especially appealing to you now. Consider them seriously. Write down your ideas and research them to see if they’re workable. This may be the start of a whole new life.

Things seem to be going quite well for you in many respects. Your thinking is clear, your emotions are under control, and the puzzle pieces are fitting into place. This is your time to take advantage of these pockets of good fortune and turn them into something huge. You have the power to make anything happen – especially now.

You may feel like a skipping record. You’ve been scratched and mistreated, and now you continue to repeat the same thing over and over until you’ve driven your point home. This isn’t your doing, so don’t be concerned if you hear protests that you’re sending others over the edge. This may be the very thing necessary for all of you to advance to the next step.

Romance intensifies as communication is enhanced by the energy, enthusiasm, and focus of you and your partner. If you aren’t already involved, you might meet someone new and exciting who shares your interests, and perhaps doesn’t live all that far away. Expect to make a lot of short trips in your neighbourhood, perhaps visiting friends or neighbours. If you’ve been thinking of moving, you might do a little house hunting.

Some older visitors to your home, perhaps your parents, might be too vocal in their assessment of how you’re handling a situation. You’re particularly sensitive today, and far less tolerant of criticism than usual. Don’t lash out. Causing a rift won’t solve anything. Change the subject and take whatever course of action you feel is best.

If you happen to be training for a new trade, learning a new technique, or perhaps you’re being evaluated after an internship period, you can expect these pursuits to conclude on a high note. You may have been somewhat afraid that those in authority would frown upon your originality. On the contrary, it seems the people in charge appreciate it more than you know.

Today may bring a welcome escape from the usual routines. You might want to go someplace new. This won’t support getting much work done, but it can give you a much-needed change of perspective. Be cautious about what information you share with others. It can be difficult to explain later.
