Before continuing with the Master Remedy of Nature Cure is Fasting with Strict Restrictions – Part III, as part of our previous articles, Master Remedy of Nature Cure is Fasting with Strict Restrictions – Part I And Master Remedy of Nature Cure is Fasting with Strict Restrictions – Part II, I wish to inform you how allowing nature will facilitate in helping your body cure itself without any external intervention with medications or other medical procedures.
At this juncture, I wish to share my own experience of nature cure with the readers. I was a weak and sick boy until the age of 20. Then, a person from Kerala taught me a few things about nature cure. I started practicing that and it provided positive results on my health. I went on improving my knowledge on various aspects of nature cure. I have been a practitioner of nature cure for the last 40 years. I have never gone to any doctor or taken any medications during those 40 years, but have allowed my own body to cure itself. I rarely suffer from any diseases due to my healthy habits aligned with nature comprehensively. If I get a fever, I will live on liquid food for 2-3 days and the fever will automatically go away. I always make it a habit to eat only when I feel sufficiently hungry and eat only that much quantity which can be digested by and ingested in the body within the next 5-7 hours. I never believe that eating should be regular and on time, but eating should be done only when someone really feels hungry.
I eat only vegetarian food and if I find any food item not smelling the way it should be, I avoid eating it. I take curd rice twice a day, in the noon and in the night, even though certain medical practitioners say that curd should not be taken in the night. My food consists more of vegetables than other items. In fact, a friend of mine once jokingly told me that we are eating the wrong way and we should reverse our plate to eat. Normally, we serve rice or roti in the plate facing us and the vegetable and curry items on the opposite side. He said that if we reverse the plate, we will be eating more vegetables and lesser rice or roti, which is the correct recipe for natural eating.
I have been practicing this since the age of 20 and I am quite healthy at 60 now. I rarely get cold or fever and I have encountered headache probably 3-4 times in the last 40 years. Even for headache, I do not take any medicine, but allow my mind to relax and enjoy the pain. The pain disappears within 10-15 minutes. Enjoying pain is one easy way of eliminating it quickly. When we are prepared to enjoy pleasure, even for long hours, why not learn to bear pain at least for some time? In fact, pain is not even a part of our body, but a mental projection. When we are in deep sleep, we do not even feel mosquito bites, but feel them acutely when we are awake. This is because the mind perceives the pain and not the body. A fainted person will not feel pain, even if you pinch him/her with a needle. A person in coma will not even be aware of anything happening around him/her.
Hence, pleasure and pain are not part of the body but only of the mind. This is what Indian yoga teaches. Separate the mind from the body and starve the body of physical sensations and you can overcome most of the physical strain, pains and afflictions of the body. Slowly, the mind will take over the body, establish its power and subdue the body to cure itself. This is also a type of fasting, a mental fasting over the physical body. We shall cover more details on the subject of fasting and eating the right food in our next article, Master Remedy of Nature Cure is Fasting with Strict Restrictions – Part IV, as part of our series of articles, Master Remedy of Nature Cure is Fasting with Strict Restrictions – Part I and Master Remedy of Nature Cure is Fasting with Strict Restrictions – Part II.
