Return to Nature NOW !
This was a sad occurrence for me to come across a patient ( merely 22 years female) with thyroid and hormonal imbalance. As she complained of acute weight loss with pain in her limbs, I got her Serum Uric acid and Blood sugar levels accessed, only to come across with High uric acid and High blood sugar. Her nagging and complaining made me to check out her blood pressure, which was surely raised much above the normal. She sat before me waiting for a long list of prescribed drugs for hypertension, diabetes, gout, thyroid, menstrual imbalance and debility. And I sat in front of her eyeing into the vacuum of what quality of life are we leading and that what lies in store for us? At the meager age of 22 years does this patient need all the medicines to cure her or maybe she needs to be educated so as to make proper diet and lifestyle amendments.
I began by telling her that I have full faith in Ayurveda therapy and in two basics of human existence -
1. As humans, we are meant to live our life disease-free till the last breath, without succumbing to medicines for our survival !
2. We can live in a happy mental state till there is conjugation between our physical body and our soul !
Ayurveda imbibes and reflects two main aims
1. First one is to do away with the disease of the diseased one with the therapy that no other malady should arise as a consequence.
2. Second is to take care of the health of a healthy individual.
No doubt, more emphasis has been laid on the second endeavor. This is the need of the times today. Lifestyle ailments are becoming part and parcel of our mere existence. High blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hormonal imbalance, varied allergies all are becoming common and much more are on the rise. And that too when we have the best of modernity as our guide and support.
Why returning to Nature is needed
We have to understand and think it over that today all we need is an insight to understand our own selves. Because it is the person within who knows, understands, warns and still suffers. How can we live artificial, eat and drink synthetic and heal ourselves by simulated means. The only and only answer to our woes and shortcomings is to return to nature. This is because we humans are Natural. Our body, mind and soul are made of the five basic elements of which the perpetual nature around us is made. Nature has the answer and also the solution. All that is needed is to have faith both in ourselves and Mother Nature. It is there to heal and console! We simply need to follow some rules of Nature and to create a natural self understanding. Then “Natural Wellness” would no more be a distant dream.
