You may wonder why an ordinary couple like us has become nature cure practitioners and opening a web site on nature cure!
The answer is simple:
Good health ought to be everybody’s concern, not solely the medical profession’s business.
More importantly, in our own case (my wife and I) we suffered immensely, for many years, largely due to the shortcomings of the modern medical system and modern eating habits. In a state of despair when all hope is lost or absent, we earnestly began our study of natural methods of treatment and cure of disease, as also for ways and means for survival by maintaining good health. By putting the time-tested nature cure methods into practice proved so beneficial to us that we took to studying their application for several other diseases as well.
We are both “Sudarshan Kriya” Art of living practitioners since 2000. Our Master, Sri Sri Ravishankar, the founder of the Art of Living, is not merely our Guru but he is the personification of the ultimate Divine power.
I am an Art of Living teacher since 2005. I teach Yoga and Art of Breathing and, thousands of people who have learned yoga with me have transformed their lives. In fact, our lives are transformed after joining the Art of Living foundation programs. The Art of living self development courses and practices, gave us all the courage, confidence, ability, will power to implement natural living methods in our lives. We dedicate our lives as a passion to yoga and hope to share with millions of people this beautiful healthy way of living and bring smile and happiness into their lives.
What began as mere jottings was gradually expanded into full-length articles on the subject now a glimpse in front of you as "naturetreatsyou.com" “prakritijeevanam.com”. Experience is the most convincing teacher and I would like to begin with details of our own case history as a means of indicating the major health problems that nature cure can overcome.
While in employment in the defense service, at the age of 26, I got married to Sreedevi, who is the founder of ‘Sopanam Nature Cure & Yoga’. We have two children. Our elder son is doing engineering and our younger daughter is in the 10th std.
In our 22 years of marriage, as mentioned earlier, my wife had to face a lot of health problems which left us debilitated. We had to discontinue our studies, plans and business many times on medical advice. Her recovery was gradual but never complete as she developed heartburn and breathing problems as side effects of the medicines. However, that was not the end of it. The heavy drugging, dieting etc. that ensued completely ruined her health and resulted in insomnia, weight gain and cardiac arrest.
We consulted an eminent heart specialist later and we were informed that there was no evidence whatsoever of any heart problem but confirmed one problem and that was the low pumping of the heart. God alone knows which diagnosis was correct.
Then came a host of diseases in rapid succession – sneezing, head ache, Asthma, back pain, chest pain, fatigue, in treating all of which the modern medical system failed to give her any relief, despite taking huge quantities of drugs, especially painkillers, antacid tablets and tranquillizers and aspirin. All this time, we were aware of the natural methods of treatment which we had heard from our friend a few of which we had practiced occasionally. We, however, dared not adopt them wholeheartedly because of her heavy dependence on drugs. Rather late in the day, when she was aged 32, we made a determined bid to do away with all drugs and take recourse to natural methods completely.
We began collecting and studying a great deal of data on the subject and also consulted many naturopaths. We made drastic changes in our diet and lifestyle and started rigidly observing the laws of nature and living with it. We were rewarded sooner than expected so much so, that my wife, who narrowly escaped death at the age of 32, when our son was just 7 year old, we can proudly say that today, at 43, she feels much healthier and physically fit. She also practices and takes yoga healthy living classes in Kuwait and other places. This is thanks mainly to our taking recourse to nature cure methods.
Though I did not have any illness from childhood started getting stomach pain disorders continued for long and finally diagnosed as acidity and ulcer also got cured by changing the life style eating habits. Of course, I do not claim that we have cured all our ailments still we don’t live fully according to the law of nature but we do maintain that we have been able to control them substantially and have obtained a lot of relief without resorting to drugs. This, we feel, is no mean achievement. We are certain that our own success in controlling several dreaded disabilities will serve as inspiration to those readers who are suffering from various ailments and hold out the hope of their deriving real benefits from the natural living methods outlined here.
It’s our pleasure to address you all the seekers on Natural Healthy living on this launching of our web-site and share few thoughts on Nature cure & Yoga.
