“It is health that is real wealth, Not the pieces of silver and gold” — Mahatma Gandhi
When we were young, we never believed in these kind of sayings by our elders. We spent very important phase of our life in working hard to get good grades in studies and then getting good hike in job, buying house, car etc. We usually do not feel the need to do anything about health till we become sick.
I too spent 17 years in corporate world mostly focusing on delivering good results and never focused on my body which enabled me to do so. I struggled with Sinusitis issues for 15+ years, tried all kind of medication (Allopathy, Homoeopathy, Ayurveda) but nothing treated the problem from root. Finally, I tried Naturopathy and that’s when I experienced the magic of nature cure and started believing in the healing power of our body. Later, I treated my son’s bronchitis and got him off all medications. We have been living as family without any medication since last 4 years.
I decided to pick it as a social cause and promised myself to make more people benefit from naturopathy. That’s how EcoLive was born.
During my health talks which usually has people of age group 25-50 yrs, I have experienced that only 5% people know anything about naturopathy however in my recent interaction with Samvedna club it was wonderful to know that almost 70-80% senior citizens knew about naturopathy!! This is old wisdom which is not passed on to the next generation. Through EcoLive, we are trying to spread the awareness about naturopathy via health talks in corporates, societies, schools and different groups.
What is Naturopathy (Nature Cure) ?
Naturopathy is a certified stream of treatment like Homoeopathy, Ayurveda, Unani. It is a holistic, drugless system of healing which works on the belief that our body has the power to heal itself using the healing powers of nature. It believes our body is made up of 5 great elements (water, air, earth, fire, space) and any imbalance in these 5 elements causes disease in our body. Restoring the balance will restore our health. It also believes that accumulation of toxins is the root cause of all diseases and we can stay healthy by preventing toxic accumulation in our body and removing it on regular basis.
Most of the illnesses (Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart problems etc.) are result of incorrect lifestyle. In today’s world when air is polluted, water is not pure, food has pesticides, the only solution to good health is to build your body’s own immunity by eating right and detoxifying our body on regular basis. Yes, it is possible to treat 80-85% of our health issues without any medication thru naturopathy.
Naturopathy treatment consists of 3 elements:
1. Therapeutic Diet
3. Therapies (done with mud, water, heat, therapeutic massages, acupressure, acupuncture etc.)
The common mistake which we make, is to copy someone else’s diet and regime for good health. We must understand that our body is unique and It is advisable to consult a qualified naturopathy doctor to discuss individual heath conditions so that they can provide diet, yoga and therapies plan according to individual’s health conditions.
We wish that more and more people realise the healing power of body and adopt Naturopathy as a first option for staying healthy.
