The carefree lifestyle

Working in Singapore since 2008, I quickly adapted to the place’s lifestyle and picked up the habit of drinking beer almost daily (at least 330 ml * 2 cans/day). I had also taken up smoking. Considering the fact that owning a vehicle is a premium luxury in Singapore, it was more of a necessity to opt for walking. Despite consuming beer and smoking regularly, I never encountered any health issues as I was an active walker.

Unfazed by my lifestyle, I continued the same until Feb 2015. During this time, I noticed white patches on penis tips. It was diagnosed as a skin infection and the doctor gave me skin cream. After applying it, the patches used to disappear and I would continue with my same routine. This whole cycle was repeated at least 5 times a year.

After a year, I started noticing severe pain in my lower body, especially in the pelvic areas. In May 2016, I visited a Urologist, who immediately suggested for a Blood Glucose Fasting Test, after seeing the white patches. The test was positive for diabetes (The 3-month average test was 11.0 which is really high). He suggested visiting a Diabetologist, who prescribed Insulin. I started taking insulin along with painkillers for my lower body pain. I took insulin for a period of 8 months until I quit in Jan 2017. My reasons for doing it were that the insulin really made me emotionally depressed. Even though I was following the dietary guidelines of the doctor by eating healthy food and doing yoga sessions, I never saw any improvement in my sugar results. This was the period I even lost my job in Singapore and returned back to India.

The painful journey back home

Settling back in India was difficult, I stopped my job search for a while as I wanted to fix my health first. I took the first step and stopped drinking. I still cannot forget the days that I would spend alone, sitting on my bean bag, without hope. The nerve pain made me feel as if I was wearing burning shoes with sharp objects inside it. The pain killers were of no help. In addition, whenever I ate and digestion process began, the pain increased to an unbearable level. This made me lose my appetite and I ate only once in a day. Due to this, I lost 20 kgs over a period of 2 years and thus, even before the beginning of nature cure treatment, I weighed down from 72 to 52 kgs!

The change happened!

After reading about old living methods and gathering many YouTube references, I wanted to do a complete body cleanse, come clear out of this diabetic condition and nerve pain. People around me commented that it is impossible to do it, and it has to be maintained life-long with medicines. However, the reference about old living methods took me to read about ancient Nature Cure methods. Through my relative in Arcot (Tamil Nadu), I came to know about Kayakalp, a Nature Cure centre and visited their website, which showed some brief pictures of the daily activities. Then came the word of mouth reference from my relative that after taking a 30-day in-house treatment at Kayakalp, she was able to walk after 5 years of immobilization. A month before beginning my treatment, I stopped smoking too. I then visited Kayakalp and met Swati Dhariwal in February 2018. She is a trained Nature Cure therapist practising for almost two decades; continuing her father’s legacy.

Life began to change for the better

Swati recommended me to stay at their premises for 30 days and follow these instructions:

  • Perform daily exercise routine.
  • Consume raw food diet.
  • Take at least two nature therapy sessions a day, some days, the frequency was more. These included naked sunbath, mud therapy, sauna therapy, oil exposure; performed on an alternate basis.

The first three days felt torturous. I was a heavy black coffee drinker. I stayed away from white sugar and always stuck to palm sugar or jaggery since July 2017. The coffee withdrawal made me depressed and Swati always had talking sessions with me to get rid of the emotional stress.

I was 52 kgs when I started the treatment and now I was 47 kgs in just three days. Swati assured me that it was perfectly normal as my body had gotten rid of accumulated toxins. After a week the body started to feel lighter, I got the pain only once a day. I thought it was a miracle. I was finally able to live without any pain after struggling from last 2 years. My sleep cycle was timed naturally from 10 PM to 6 AM. I was more energetic than the previous week and willingly participated in daily treatments which led to the loss of another 4 kgs in the next 20 Days! I was just 43 kgs at the end of 30 days. This total 9 kgs loss in the 30 days was just body toxins and my body fat percentage was 18. This had happened to me quite fast as I had already lost 20 kgs in 1 year before even starting the treatment.

Here, I would like to mention that every body responds differently to different treatment forms. So it may take much longer for others to get to this stage.

When I left Kayakalp, I had promised Swati, that I will continue the raw diet, daily active exercise routines and natural lifestyle for another 70 days to complete the 100 days Nature Cure cycle.

I did the following:

  • I only had raw fruits for the next 70 days with intermittent juice fasting in-between weeks. I did not eat any cooked meals in the 100 days of my treatment process.
  • Overall I followed it for almost 92 days and the balance 8 days I considered as cheat days and had some great home-cooked food.
  • By the time I crossed 80 days, I started to enjoy a fullness in life, without that horrible pain and was astonished about how our body can react when we treat it the way it has to be.
  • I started learning swimming and continued it throughout my 100 days of treatment.

To sum it up, following Nature Cure religiously under Swati’s guidance, helped me bounce back to life. Not only did I get rid of diabetes and nerve pain, I felt very energetic and positive.

My life now

Even today I keep my intake of raw fruits high. There are a lot of natural lifestyle options one can follow. Choose which is right and comfortable for you and make sure you pick at least one healthy habit. I tried jogging, swimming, yoga, gym, but I liked swimming more and started practising an hour of active swimming at least 3 times a week.

Today, I consume no more than 2 cooked meals per day. Also, I make sure that I do not time my meals and eat only when I am hungry. This ensures that I do not experience any pain that I would feel previously after eating food. If I do deviate from my eating habits at social occasions, I make sure that I remind myself of the need to take care of my holistic health. I continue to check my sugar levels every week and am delighted to share that they are under 120-125.

Conclusion

I was a hopeless individual who was suffering from unending pain and trauma for almost 3 years. But, after the treatment, I’ve been living a pain-free, disease-free life. I believe that by sharing my story with others, I’ll be able to inspire people to never give up and continue to hope. I also wish that natural lifestyle will become a norm in the future for healthy living.
