My multiple health problems
I was addicted to junk food.Eating outside food frequently was a part of my routine. Since 2010, I had frequent occurrence of mouth ulcers. I tried all forms of medicine but nothing had an effective impact. I fell prey to throat infections, fever and skin allergies every 2 weeks. It hampered my day to day productivity. Regular visits to ENT specialists during the onset of winter season became a routine affair. I was prescribed with inhalers and sprays to ease my nasal congestion. I also took anti-allergy medicine but nothing seemed to work. Till the time I took medication and sprays, I was fine. The moment I stopped the usage, my issues bounced back.
My situation worsened in 2016 when I also began to experience gastric issues. I kept struggling to balance my life with a bundle of these health issues. In April 2019, I had a severe stomach infection and multiple blood tests were done. I was trying to get a hold of my health when the worst possible incident occurred in my life. In July 2019, my condition became worse as I was diagnosed with swollen lymph nodes of around 3 cm in my stomach. It was followed by diarrhoea, low energy levels, body pain and severe weight loss of around 10 kgs in just 2 months. I consulted many doctors but they were unable to diagnose the cause. For the next 3 months, I went under the scanner for every possible test related to stomach issues. But, much to my disappointment, the real issue still stayed undiagnosed. Also, the side-effects of medicines were extremely high. I felt non-energetic, would be passing stools 5-6 times a day and also experienced heartburn, insomnia, depression, and inflammation. My health had hit an all-time low and every day was a struggle. After years of taking allopathic, homoeopathic and ayurvedic medicines and still suffering so much, I was totally frustrated. I was looking for a more stable and permanent solution.
Introduction to natural living
During this time, one of my seniors at work, Sumeet Kapur, told me about Nature Cure. He was aware of my health struggles as I could not strike the balance between work and my well-being. So, one fine day, he explained the science of natural healing to me and suggested that I opt for it.
Following his advice and listening to the life-altering natural healing stories from him, I wanted to experience this bliss myself and thus decided to live a natural lifestyle. I subscribed to Wellcure’s Nature Nurtures Program. I was connected to a Natural Health Coach who guided me in my healing journey. He made me understand the accumulation of toxins in my body was the primary cause of all my health issues. By following a whole, plant-based diet and making some lifestyle changes, I would be able to restore my health. My interaction with him instilled new confidence and hope in me, and I began following his advice religiously.
I did the following changes for the next 3 months:
I drank ash gourd juice in the morning
I soaked the morning sun daily for atleast 30 minutes
I consumed only fresh, seasonal fruits till 12 pm
For lunch, I introduced salads made from raw veggies. I cut off salt and sugar from my diet
I replaced table salt with rock salt and sugar with jaggery
I did wet towel therapy twice in the day
I discontinued dairy products and processed food from my diet
I integrated the concept of yoga in my daily routine by joining yoga classes
During evenings, I consumed sprouts, fruits or soaked nuts & seeds based on my hunger level
After experiencing aggravated throat pain and high fever in the first week, I was amazed when my health considerably improved in the next couple of months. Over some time, I was surprised that my acidity issues were under control. Earlier I used to get a sore throat every month or so, now it was rare. I also started gaining weight. It also resulted in my body being more energetic throughout the day. Many health conditions got corrected holistically. I underwent ultrasound in Jan 2020 after completing 3 months of following a natural way of life and the results surprised everybody. The swelling in the lymph nodes in the stomach was gone and I was perfectly fit!
During the period of illness, my health had reached such a low level earlier that I would wear warm clothing throughout the year. I was not able to walk even for a small distance, but now, all these were things of the past. I can now work strenuously without getting fatigued. I have a lot of energy in me, which is quite contrary to my previous life, where I was struggling to survive for even a single day. Not only do I feel physically fit, but also mentally more relaxed. I have better focus ability.
Today, I make sure to follow the practices of Nature Cure judiciously. Even when I consume cooked meals in the day, I always make it a point to add fresh, raw salads to each meal for better digestion. I have stopped eating outside food and it has shown incredible results in my health. I also perform yoga regularly and pay special attention to stretching, Surya Namaskar and other restorative asanas.
