For the fourth time since he became Delhi Chief Minister, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal is being rushed to Bengaluru on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, immediately after the conclusion of campaign for Punjab and Goa where the Aam Aadmi Party has been contesting elections.
The hectic and high-pitched campaign has apparently left the Delhi CM with high blood sugar levels requiring insulin injections thrice in a day to keep diabetes under control, said an official of the Delhi government.
“He will leave for Bengaluru on February 7 to undergo naturopathy treatment. Also, he has fever. He will be there for 12-14 days,” the official added.
After becoming Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal was rushed to Bengaluru-based Jindal Naturecure Institute in March 2015, which was followed by another visit in January 2016 and a third visit to Narayana Hridayalaya for a surgery of the tongue.
His fourth visit to bengaluru in a row, Kejriwal would undergo 12 days of naturopathy treatment at JNI. He should undergo a 10-day rigour, which includes eating only fruits and no carbohydrates. The mud-bath or remaining neck-deep in sand is another feature of the institute’s naturopathy.
Otherwise, Jindal Naturecure Institute (JNI), set up by Dr.Sitaram Jindal, in 1978, is a charitable naturopathy and yoga hospital set up in a natural surrounding of about 100 acres in the outskirts of Bangalore.
It provides relief, prevention and cure of specific diseases through a non-invasive, drugless therapy by combining nature cure with yoga. Other treatment methods include drugless regimens like diet therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and Vega therapy (Germany).
“JNI is not merely a hospital that helps you treat and cure the specific diseases for which you have chosen to come here but it helps you to learn a new way of life that will be your lifelong companion, enhancing the quality of your physical, psychological and spiritual existence, even long after you have left this abode of health and wellbeing,” says the centre on its website.
Naturopathy is an Indian system that augments Ayurveda to treat chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. It combines hydrotherapy or treating with water in the form of compress, packs, fomentation, various tub baths, water massages, aquatic exercises, and enema and colon hydrotherapy.
The mud therapy is another form and manipulative therapy makes use of therapeutic massages like oil massage, vibro massage, hot stone massage, deep tissue massage and Kairali massage.
Besides, the fasting therapy, known as “Langanam parama oushadham” (Fasting is the supreme cure) is one that restricts food to specific juices or soups. It helps in elimination of the toxins by giving rest to the digestive system and enhancing the healing properties, says the institute.
