Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reached Bangalore to undergo 10 days of naturopathy treatment at Jindal Naturecure Institute from today, according to the party’s Karnataka chief Prithvi Reddy, who confirmed it to the media.
Arvind Kejriwal is known for his chronic cough visibly seen in many of his TV interviews aired on national TVs. After fighting the Delhi elections successfully, Kejriwal has decided to go for naturopathy, as advised by friends and the prime minister too.
At a recent meeting organised by the Delhi Police called “At Home”, Prime Minister noticed Kejriwal, a diabetic and asthma patient, continuously coughing. He later reportedly suggested Kejriwal to visit a naturopathy doctor in Bangalore for his treatment.
It was learnt that Modi went a step further and talked to the doctor in Bangalore to fix a 10-day treatment for Kejriwal. Agreed, Kejriwal is here in Bangalore on a 10-day quick fix naturopathy treatment.
But this is not the first time for Kejriwal to take naturopathy treatment. But this time, he may get special attention being Delhi CM, but in naturopathy every VIP or Aam Aadmi should undergo similar diet and rigour.
The 10-day rigour may have been shortened the otherwise one-month treatment that is practised in JNI, which includes eating only fruits and no carbohydrates. The mud-bath or remaining neck-deep in sand is another interesting 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 spread 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 and also makes use of other drugless regimens like diet therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and Vega therapy (Germany).
The Institute first provides diagnosis using modern equipment and then applies naturopathy treatment to patients.
“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 in which specific juices/soups are given as per disease condition. It helps in elimination of the toxins by giving rest to the digestive system and enhancing the healing properties within our system, says the institute.
With its focus on healing than mere controlling, naturopathy combines nature’s five elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether – to maintain their equilibrium as any disturbance causes disease, says the institute.
