YOGA AND NATURE CURE
-a way of life
Don’t you think, whenever you hear the words ‘YOGA’ or ‘NATURE CURE’ or ‘NATUROPATHY’ you wonder how exactly does this work in the field of medicine when there is so much advancement in the modern medicine or let alone how does it even cure? Well today, let’s decode it!
Yoga is the derivative of a samskrit word ‘yuj’ which means to unite the individual consciousness with universal consciousness or it could also be put up as binding the soul with the spirit.
Though a lot of us think of yoga as nothing more than just twisting, turning, stretching, breaking down the bones in order to finish up the postures, BUT has it ever clicked that yoga is not only about this superficial aspect but it’s much deeper. It’s the profound science of unfolding the infinite potentials of the human mind and soul, it’s the complete essence of way of life and the ultimate healer.
As famous people have stated-
“Yoga is not just exercise and asanas, it is the emotional integration and spiritual elevation
with a touch of mystic element, which gives you a glimpse of something beyond all imagination”
Says Sri Sri Ravishankar Guruji
“Yoga is that which brings you to reality”
Thus, yoga being a natural medicine in itself is the reason of it being included in naturopathy.
Naturopathy is an art and science of healthy living and a drugless system of healing. The system has it’s own concepts of health, disease and treatments. It is the most natural system of medicine which is proved scientifically and just not based on any cock and bull stories. Treatments are based on the 5 main elements of the universe – Pruthvi, Ap, Tejas, Vayu, Aakash.
Some of them are – mud pack, mud bath, aroma therapy, magneto therapy, sun bath, colour sun bath, green leaves sun bath, hip bath, immersion bath, spinal bath, circular jet bath, acupuncture, acupressure, reflexology and much more.
Naturopathy is a medicine for every person diseased or not and if you are willing to learn the basics and the deeper side of it there is a professional course BNYS (Bachelor of Naturopathy and Yogic Sciences) waiting for you at THE SCHOOL OF YOGA AND NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE, SVYASA University , Bengaluru.
