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.

Decoding Men

"It's a guy thing."

Means: "There is no rational thought pattern connected with it, and you have no chance at all of making it logical."

"Can I help with dinner?"

Means: "Why isn't dinner already on the table?"

"Uh huh," "Sure, honey," or "Yes, dear..."

Means: Absolutely nothing. It's a conditioned response.

"It would take too long to explain."

Means: "I have no idea how it works."

"I was listening to you. It's just that I have things on my mind."

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Friends, neighbours, and relatives could be feeling especially stressed out and explosive today. This isn’t a good day to initiate intense communications with them. Keep your talk light and inconsequential. This is a great day to stay home and read, especially since your mind is particularly receptive to unusual ideas. The Internet, videos, and TV documentaries could be most informative.

Today, you need to pay attention to what your intuition is telling you. Events today may make you realize that there is more than what meets the eye and a lot lies below the surface. Try to find useful things to do which make you feel enthusiastic and optimistic.

You may feel a bit sluggish today. You’ll probably want to stay home, surrounded by your books, pets, and plants, yet you know you have appointments to keep and responsibilities to fulfill. Your sense of duty is especially strong. Make a deal with yourself to get the bare minimum done and then relax.

This is a powerful day to examine your habits. Stress often comes from having too much on your plate. Take steps to make your home, mind, body, and spirit as simple and natural as possible. Use less technology, limit unnecessary commitments, and make your world more peaceful, quiet, and beautiful.

Travel is on the cards today for sure. It could be anything-a spur-of-the-moment trip with a friend, a short trip closer to home or a road trip to rediscover yourself. You might want to focus on the ideas that erupt in your mind since your creative juices are flowing and who knows…you might just hit gold!

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.

There is some probability that you’ll want to escape from reality today. You aren’t anxious to face a situation that demands that you commit yourself. Is this because you’re afraid that you lack the ability to assume this new responsibility? This is an honest-to-goodness chance to fulfill your dreams of success. There can be no question of evading it! Get busy!

It may be hard for you to find answers today. You may also find it difficult to get your point across, especially since everyone’s head is way up in the clouds. Don’t be surprised if your own head takes a trip up there as well. You’re better off giving it a boost up there instead of trying to force it back down to reality. Check things out from a different perspective.

Friends are a positive influence. The more reasons you find to laugh, the better you’ll feel. Say yes to anything that inspires your imagination. This is a positive time to make changes at work. Older people may need more attention, and here again, laughter is good medicine.
