A Naturopathy practitioner always said…
YOU GIVE ME FEVER. I WILL GIVE YOU HEALTH!Very strange! Isn’t It?
Naturopathy says whenever we have a fever. It takes us a few days to recover and during that recovery process we come out to be more energized, agile and rejuvenated.
What does this mean?
According to the Law of Nature, your body is a self-healing organism. It has it’s natural self-repair process. It is a combination of five tattvas.
The Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth
“शरीर को स्वस्थ रखने और अस्वस्थ स्थिति में वापिस स्वस्थ होने की पूर्ण शक्ति प्रभु ने शरीर को दी है!

When we get sick, just for quick recovery we tend to rely on medicines. These medicines just suppress the symptoms quickly and give us quick relief.
But if we think from the ancient wisdom, these symptoms are just indications that need attention. We don’t need to suppress the symptoms but try to address the root cause of the problem.
Our body has the natural defense mechanism and it starts to function when there is too much accumulation of toxins in our body which are causing those symptoms.
We need to give our body’s natural mechanism to start working by releasing toxins, rejuvenating internal organs especially endocrine glands hormones and enzymes. These wastes at any level of our 5 basic tatvas are expelled on its own.
The best thing you can do during your healing process is to adopt a simple natural diet with lots of fluids to heal you faster.
Fever or symptoms of illness just reflects the imbalance in the body. These symptoms could be body pain, diarrhea, headaches, fever, sneezing or coughing etc.
This is the time to self heal. isolate, rest, eat healthy, drink fluids and do less activity.
Balancing The Five Basic Tattvas
- Consuming Less Food Balances Earth Tatva
- Drinking Lukewarm Fluids Balances Water Tatva
- Slow and Steady Breathing Balances Air Tatva
- Less Strain on Stomach by Eating Light and Balanced Food Like Khichdi Balances Fire Tatva
- Taking Rest and Self Isolating from Excessive Stress and Work Balances Aakash Or Space Tatva
With my regular research and passionate interest in natural wellness has given me a good insight on Naturopathy. The practice of naturopathy is based on a belief in the body’s ability to heal itself through a special vital energy or force guiding bodily processes internally. Diagnosis and treatment concern primarily alternative therapies and “natural” methods that promote the body’s natural ability to heal.
The Mind and Body Connection
This means that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning. In other words, our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are!
यथा ब्रह्माण्डे तथा पिण्डे ‘यथा ब्रह्माण्डे तथा पिण्डे‘ -चरक संहिता का यह श्लोकांश हमें समझाता है कि जो-जो इस ब्रह्माण्ड में है वही सब हमारे शरीर में भी है। यह भौतिक संसार पंचमहाभूतों से बना है- आकाश, वायु, अग्नि, जल और पृथ्वी। उसी प्रकार हमारा हमारा यह शरीर भी इन्हीं पाँचों महाभूतों से बना हुआ है।
This practice has stunning and deep meaning. Yajurveda Reveals, “Yatha pinde tatha brahmande, yatha brahmande tatha pinde“. That is –“As is the individual, so is the universe, as is the universe, so is the individual” or “As is the human body, so is the Cosmic Body, as is the cosmic body so is the human body”
Coming to Current Pandemic- Is It Nature’s Fury Or Corona Or Healing Crisis
The Overused, Exhausted, Ignored, Imbalanced, Insecure Nature paved its Natural Way of Showing the Natural Healing Process.
We HOMO SAPIENS overused all natural resources with the advancement of technology and the superpower of a human brain.
Nature in it’s fury started to show alarming air toxicity, rivers depletion of ozone, frequent tsunamis and earthquakes etc.
NATURE began its self healing process and the environmental changes wrought by the coronavirus were first visible from space. Then, as the disease and the lockdown spread, they could be sensed in the sky above our heads, the air in our lungs and even the ground beneath our feet.
While the human toll mounted horrendously from a single case in Wuhan to a global pandemic, nature, it seemed, was increasingly able to breathe more easily.
That’s how it happens in Naturopathy-The Natural Healing Science!
When something chronic, life threatening disease like Cancer or Diabetes prevails, the wisdom is to advise the patient for long fasting. A long curfew is imposed on a regular lifestyle by restricting on food, lifestyle and other daily habits.
As soon this is imposed we start to see amazing results.
This unheard, unexpected lockdown is a way of nature to make us realise the essence of life and to heal nature in itself so that in the process we humans become the best versions of ourselves.
This Pandemic Gave Us the Learning to Trust Nature & Trust It’s Infinite Power!
“Future pandemics are likely to happen more frequently, spread more rapidly, have greater economic impact and kill more people if we are not extremely careful about the possible impacts of the choices we make today!”
