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!

In the modern world of business, it is useless to be a creative original thinker unless you can also sell what you create.

Management cannot be expected to recognize a good idea unless it is presented to them by a good salesman.


-David M. Ogilvy

Your Fortune For Today
Thursday, October 02nd, 2014

This is a lucky day for you! It supports long-term plans and the courage to make big changes. If you feel particularly passionate about a project or cause, this is the time to move mountains. People feel inspired in your presence. Social networking will help you reach your goals.

Embrace a new spirit of optimism and refuse to let things get you down today. Blunt speech will bring better results than you might expect. Know your boundaries and be a bit conservative estimating how much you can do. Expect distractions and a change of plans. This may bring a welcome opportunity.

You’re likely to receive news today that brightens your future outlook. It could be that your boss calls you at home and hints at a pending promotion, or your partner could receive a raise or unusually large bonus. Whatever the news, know that your financial picture will begin to look dramatically better than it has been. Start making plans for how you’ll improve your lifestyle. A vacation may just be in order.

It’s time to expand your horizons, especially if you’re feeling unappreciated. Volunteering for community service events or travelling to see new places can change your perspective in positive ways. Be confident enough to take a leap in order to chase your neglected dreams. But do this only after you have done some research regarding the field -you don’t want to jump in blind.

The approaching arrival of visitors, perhaps in relation to a group activity or social event you’re hosting, could necessitate a last-minute cleanup and perhaps even a little redecorating. More than one person is likely to come to your door today, and all who visit are likely to bring interesting news and useful information. By day’s end your energy and enthusiasm should be much higher than they were in the morning.

Things can be emotionally rocky. You may fly into a rage at thoughtless comments or perceived unfairness. Try to remain calm. You know what is right. Spend more time taking care of yourself. This is a great day to schedule more personal time doing those things you enjoy most.

Today may require some understanding and forgiveness on your part. You may be a little tense and upset about some issues with your spouse. It’s best to sort them out today and ease the wrinkle now before it drives a wedge between you two.

This can be a busy day, full of last-minute details and holiday preparations. If possible, take someone you like on any errands you have around town. It will be more fun and the feedback you receive could be especially helpful. Get enough sleep in order to best enjoy what lies ahead.

Your feelings may deceive you so be careful of getting too wrapped up in your own drama. Perhaps you feel you’re getting pushed and pulled in uncomfortable directions. You might tolerate this tension for a while without expressing your feelings about it. This is a dangerous policy because it could give others the impression that it’s OK to continue treating you the way they do.
