Shabnam was suffering from severe PMS symptoms, digestion issues and joint pain. She tried homeopathy and allopathy, but the effect only lasted until the medication. Post that, everything was back to square one. She was tired of trying to find a permanent solution when she finally crossed paths with Natural Living and her life got transformed. Read her full story here.

How did the problems begin?

Since 2015, I’d begun to experience PMS symptoms on a regular basis. I had low energy, drastic mood swings and was diagnosed with PCOS. I used to feel acute pain in body joints that probed me to get tested for Rheumatoid Arthritis. Even though the test reports were clear, I suffered from prolonged pain every now and then. During this time, I’d become excessively dependant on coffee to give me the desired stimulation to begin my day.

I was also diagnosed with lactose intolerance. Being a Punjabi, I found it difficult to keep myself away from milk and dairy products. But, its consumption affected my stomach as I always fell prey to diarrhoea, heartburn and acidity issues. I went to a homeopathic doctor and began my course of medication that lasted till the end of 2016. During these 1.5 years, my condition did improve but as I stopped the medicine, the symptoms would bounce back.

Tired of all this, I stopped all medicines till mid-2017. I was facing extreme inflammation on my face and body, would cry without any reason and my thought pattern had become so negative that I thought I might be on the verge of depression. My health had deteriorated to an extent that I was finding it difficult to juggle between the role of a professional, a wife and a mother. I quit my corporate job and opted for life at a slower pace.

Unfortunately, one day, the energy levels had gone so low that I could not even lift my hand. I visited a gynaecologist and she prescribed birth control pills in order to bring the menstrual cycle into its regular pattern. I took those medicines for the next 6 months and I started feeling better. I returned to India from Singapore and resumed my corporate job. Even though my PMS symptoms were managed by the medication, I could not keep myself away from the side-effects of those pills. My digestive issues came back.

Upon a visit to a gastroenterologist, I was advised to stop the consumption of birth control pills and start with yoga. But, all hell broke loose as I stopped the hormonal pills. All my PMS symptoms returned with double impact and I found myself sitting at another homeopathic doctor’s clinic. My doctor asked me to take up the tests for Vitamin B12, D, Calcium, Iron and the results were at the bottom level. So, I began taking homeopathic medicines with supplements of B12, D, Calcium and Iron.

I was stuck in this maze of never-ending health issues and medicines.

The new way of life

I had become pessimistic. But, one day, one of my colleagues Parul Bhatia told me about the transformative journey of her son who healed from allergy by Nature Cure. This caught my interest as I was looking for a similar solution for my son who was suffering from allergic rhinitis. I asked Parul more about this science and she connected me to Anchal, a Natural Health Coach at Wellcure. The Natural Health Coach told me about the Laws of Nature, the reason of disease as an accumulation of toxins in the body and how I needed to integrate exercise in my routine for cleansing the toxins. One conversation with her was enough for me to decide that I wanted to explore this science of natural healing for my child. So, I thought that I’d begin by trying these methods first on myself.

From Aug 2019, I started my journey on the path of Nature Cure. I had my apprehensions in the beginning but thanks to the constant guidance from Wellcure’s Natural Health Coach, I sailed through the process smoothly. I had already joined yoga classes, now I began making other changes, one change at a time.

PHASE 1

  • I started by eating only fresh, seasonal fruits for breakfast. I was shocked to see that from the 2nd-3rd day, my energy levels improved. I also used to suffer from sleep issues but I was again amazed to see that my sleep quality was better. I had a sound sleep without any interruptions. Also, my stool quality had improved. As I was lactose intolerant, I faced bouts of constipation and diarrhoea regularly. But, after making 1 simple change, I was seeing major improvements.

PHASE 2

  • During my month long consultation with Wellcure, the Natural Health Coach had shared various vegetable salad recipes with me but I was sceptical if salads could keep me full. But, after seeing the results of eating only fruits in breakfast, I now wanted to try eating salads as well. I made the chickpea salad recipe and soon it became one of my favourite meals. I tried more salads and unlike my preconceived notion, I was feeling full and satisfied after eating salads! Then, there was no looking back.

PHASE 3

I now began my journey on the path of Nature Cure in full throttle.

  • I began drinking vegetable juices and soups.
  • I cut off sugar and salt from my diet.
  • I let go of milk and dairy products completely.
  • I replaced the usual processed snacks with amaranth ladoos, cashew ladoos, and til laddoos as they provide good fats to the body.
  • I snacked on nuts and seeds when I felt hungry.

I followed the changes mentioned above for 3 months and saw a massive difference in my health. However, I also went through a period of healing crisis after 3 months. A lot of acne erupted on my face and back. I learnt from the Natural Health Coach that it was my body’s detoxification process in action. I stopped using all chemical-containing products and all the acne and pimples disappeared miraculously. I also suffered from diarrhoea as part of my healing crises. Upon taking lemon with honey, my health was restored once again.

I continued to follow this lifestyle for the next 3 months, making it to a total of 6 months of natural way of living. By the end of 6 months, I was a changed person.

  • I lost 6 kgs of weight and was back to my pre-wedding measurements!
  • My friends and family were giving me compliments on the glowing skin.
  • I could perform poses like headstand and chakrasana in yoga. Even though I had done yoga before, but this time it was different. I had the strength to perform such difficult poses.
  • My PMS symptoms had vanished, my mensuration cycle normalised.
  • The digestive issues got settled and the pain in the joints also subsided.

Conclusion

Nature Cure has cured me of my health problems and given me a new life that I am grateful for. I am glad to discover this way of living as it has not only changed my life for the better but also inspired my 6 year old son in developing good habits. In this day and age, when parents struggle to feed fruits and vegetables to their kids, he relishes fresh fruits and veggies. He also suffers from ADHD and I can see improvement in his hyperactivity. He is calmer now and I am sure that with constant practice, he will keep getting better in terms of his overall health.

Furthermore, I’d also like to tell all the parents reading this that our children gauge our actions minutely and then imbibe the traits in their persona as well. I’d like to use this platform to urge every parent to adopt a natural way of living so their kids can also follow the footsteps and discover the magical path of Nature Cure.
