This is a Book on Nature Cure based on my personal experience with Thonse Nature Cure Centre, Thonse, Udupi.
The Thonse Effect – A Nature Cure Treatment
I have heard a lot about Nature Cure treatment , Pancha Karma, Jindal treatment etc. and I was tempted to try it out but did not have the gumption to try it for some reason. Call it fear of the unknown, whether I would stand the test of it (diets) or is it worth it. However there was a lingering desire to go through one such experience.
Naturopathy is a natural healing technique using the healing powers of nature. The principle of Naturopathy is that the accumulation of toxins is the root cause of all diseases. Prevention and elimination of toxins is the route to health. Treatments are based on the 5 great elements of nature that have immense healing properties. There is no role of internal medications in the nature cure system.
The Five great elements of nature and the treatments based on them are:
1. Earth – Mud baths, Mud packs,
2. Water – Hydrotherapeutic methods in the form of Baths, Jets, Douches, Packs, Compresses, Immersions
3. Air – Breathing exercises, Outdoor walking, Open air baths
4. Fire – Sun baths, Thermoleum baths, Magnetised water, Colour charged oils / water
5. Ether – Fasting therapy
This multi disciplinary approach uses the healing power of natural resources like foods, herbs, earth, water, air, sun and magnets to allow the body to heal itself. It helps in degenerative and chronic conditions like asthma and arthritis, gastro-intestinal problems and hypertension.
On 20th Dec, I had the shock of my life, my fasting blood sugar had shot up to 240 on empty stomach. I decided “That’s It”. I was getting tired, with stress catching up rapidly. Started putting up weight (72+ kg) and was starting to look older than my normal self.
The year end block closure at Office was fast approaching. That meant that I would have around 2 weeks of free time (sort of vacation time off). My team member and colleague at office, was tempting me with an offer for some time. Tripthi Shetty, who is part of my team was sharing with me her experience of Nature Cure treatment for her illness (maintaining confidentiality for sensitivity) at a place near her home viz. Thonse Nature Cure Centre. She used to narrate her experience and the benefit that she derived from it. Daily Massages, different baths, diets etc.
She was sharing that come December she would again be going through a Nature Cure treatment at Thonse. That’s when, coupled with my trigger that I decided that I would jump into it and almost in a jiffy told Tripthi, that I would join her to Thonse.
