Asha Pawar suffered a major health setback related to her back when she was just 27 years old. Already in her third trimester of pregnancy, she had no choice but to wait for the delivery of her child to get a clear view of her health. Later, she found out that she had an issue in her spine, which could be either cancer or T.B. This is her journey of recovering permanently through Nature Cure. Read below to know more.
60 yrs., Housewife
(Asha’s journey as narrated by her husband V S Pawar)
Pregnancy is such a beautiful phase for any couple. Such was the case with my wife and me, as she was seven months pregnant with our soon-to-be-born child. Our excitement knew no bounds as we were going to be parents in a short time. The year was 1986, and my wife, then 27 years of age, complained about backache. However, due to her pregnancy, no diagnostic test could be carried out to ascertain the cause of the same. It was only after the delivery of our child that an X-Ray was conducted. The results were horrifying as we learnt that she had damaged two of the vertebrae in her spine. The doctor went on to suggest that it could be an early sign of an impending Cancer or Spine T.B and further advised a biopsy.
Parallel to the occurrence of these events, I'd been living my life as a staunch follower of nature cure since the year 1976; when I met Acharya Swaminathan. He was my guru who handed me the Gita of nature cure: Practical Nature Cure Book, which enlightened me as a human being. When a few years later, when my wife was diagnosed with such health scares, I wrote a letter to my guru. This kind and gentle individual responded with his set of instructions that my wife would have to follow.
The Real Challenge
Even though we'd received the advice from my guru, the real task was realizing that it involved complete exclusion of cereals from my wife's diet for a month or as required. Being the mother to a baby boy who was barely two-months-old, my wife needed the right amount of nutrition through her diet, to breastfeed the child. Cereals were supposed to be a common part of diet. The radical recovery would have taken much less time had she not been a suckling mother. For any other patient, a non-cereal diet for longer period would have culminated in quicker recovery. But, I had decided that nature cure was the only solution to her health issues. It took me some time to convince everyone around of the same, but was highly elated when my wife displayed her complete faith in me and decided to undergo the natural way of healing.
She remained on a non-cereal diet for the next 50 days and combined it with hot and cold fomentation on the spine thrice a day. She also soaked in the sun and was amazed when her body responded to the natural treatment within a fortnight. Not only did her backache subside by half the amount, but she also fell in love with the process of natural healing to the extent that she wished to continue the treatment. We again approached Sri Swaminathanji and went to Puddokottai; the nature cure centre run by the grandson of Sh. Acharya Sarma, T. Vijaygopalan.
The Road to Complete Recovery
We stayed in the centre for 45 days, and my wife followed the treatment that included:
A morning drink of highly alkaline medicine that included bilwa patra, banana pith, ashgourd, or durva grass juice followed by tender coconut water.
She did sunbathing and followed it up with a spinal bath for 25 minutes.
She then proceeded to consume her lunch that comprised of two whole wheat chapattis along with salads and boiled vegetables.
In the afternoon, she again went for a spinal bath that lasted for 25 minutes.
In the evening, both of us took a stroll and explored the centre.
In dinner, she consumed fruits and coconuts and followed it up with a stimulating mud pack of spine for the entire night.
This 45-days long program proved highly effective for my wife and helped in reducing all her pain; though it did develop a small boil at the seat of damaged vertebrae. We were given a month-long prescription by Sri Vijaygopalan and were asked to convey the progress. To our shock, the boil grew to the size of an apple in the next two months. We conveyed the same to Sri Vijaygopalan who told us that the boil would burst open and assured us that Mother Nature would take care of it. We were also advised to apply only cold bandage over the affected place.
The boil did burst open after some time and continuously leaked pus for 3-4 months. We did not apply any drugs on it and stuck to the method of applying wet packs to the opening. As per his advice, my wife continued her approach to fast for 2-3 days after every 15 days. She also followed her regimen that included sunbathing, spinal bath, and herbal juice of bilwa patra. She continued it for a period of 18 months; the time that it took for the whole recovery process to get completed.
And the miracle happened!
Once she recovered, an X-Ray was taken and shown to an orthopedic surgeon. Much to his astonishment, the entire wedging of the damaged vertebrae was done! Nature worked its magic as I had believed. I sincerely thank Acharya K.L.Sarma who gave us his valuable guidance. We realized that no artificial therapy or surgery; be it electrotherapy, magnetotherapy, acupressure, acupuncture, urine therapy, could compete with the self-healing mechanism of the body.
My wife's story stands out in sharp contrast to one of the similar popular cases, wherein a patient opted for regular treatment of medications and operation. Unfortunately, he was left paralyzed after the operation and remained in the same for close to 13 years. Imagine, what he and his family would've suffered; mentally and financially!
After witnessing my wife's healing journey, I'd advise anyone suffering from an acute, chronic, fatal degenerative disease to come to the fold of this great science of self-healing. It would provide radical recovery without incurring massive monetary expenditure, lifetime dependency on medication and hazardous side effects.
