Naturopathy Camp with Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj

Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj conducting a naturopathy camp at Bhakti Mandir, Mangarh
Naturopathy is a set of health practitices and natural therapies. The spectrum comprises far more than fasting, nutrition, water, and exercise; it includes approved natural healing practices such as Homeopathy, Acupuncture, and Herbal Medicine, as well as the use of modern methods like Bio-Resonance, Ozone-Therapy, and Colon Hydrotherapy.

The modern era of science and technology is geared almost fully towards a fast life full of tensions and stress. Industrialization, productivity, consumerism, aggressive marketing etc. has improved the comforts of life, but in spite of all these, the associated stress and tensions have shown no sign of decreasing. This has manifested itself as decreasing quality of life, increasing health hazards, social chaos etc. This situation calls in for a basic change towards a more holistic world view, healthier and harmonious living.

Naturopathy believes "All healing power is within your body". It, therefore, advocates aiding the human system to remove the causes of diseases, i.e. Toxins, by expelling the unwanted matter from the body for curing the diseases. It affirms that human body is not an inert machine, which requires external help whenever it fails to function normally. It is an all power living dynamo and if given proper opportunity, is capable of curing and preserving itself. We fall ill only when we go against nature.

Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat's Free Hospitals each have an entire wing dedicated to effective naturopathic treatment. Several months ago I became very ill while on a trip to Mangarh and was very fortunate to experience first hand the friendliness and professionalism of the doctors at the JKP Hospital there. When receiving treatment at a JKP Hospital, you choose one of three disciplines - Allopathy, Homeopathy or Naturopathy (there is also a seperate physiotherapy center). I decided to try naturopathy as it was not something I had tried before or knew anything about. The therapies that were administered to me included jal neti, sutra neti, vaman, cold therapy, hot therapy and steam bath as well as a mixture of special honey and herbal powder for my sore stomach. The doctors there were highly skilled in their area of treatment and furthermore made me laugh alot, which was in itself a form of treatment. Needless to say, my health improved upon leaving the hospital. I recovered fully in a day or two. I am sure that it's the best hospital that I have ever been to, and furthermore, the only hospital in the world where no money is required for any treatments or procedures. The hospital's benefit to the hundreds and thousands of villagers from the surrounding districts is incalculable.

There is saying that "Naturopathy heals, while yog maintains. Therefore these are like two wheels of a cart". The traditional Indian system of naturopathy and yog are scientifically proven to be the most efficient and effective therapeutic means in preventing diseases and also provides complete cure to many so-called 'incurable diseases'. This drugless system guides the body to act against the basic cause of diseases process, and bring the body towards absolute health and provides immense vigor and vitality. Naturopathy and yog, with physical, mental and emotional personality development and a holistic understanding offers a total approach to the challenges of the day.

Jagadguru Kripalu Charitable Hospitals recently conducted a mass naturopathy and yog camp in Mangarh in the Divine presence of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.
