Food Cures for Cataracts
There is increasing evidence to show that in several cases cataracts have actually been reversed by proper nutritional treatment. However, the time needed for such treatment may extend from six months to three years.

A thorough course of cleansing the system of the toxic matter is essential. To start with, it will be beneficial to undergo a fast for three to four days on orange juice and water. A warm water enema may be taken during this period. After this initial fast, a diet of very restricted nature should be followed for two weeks. In this regimen, breakfast may consist of oranges or grapes or any other juicy fruit in season. Raw vegetable salads in season, with olive oil and lemon juice dressing, and soaked raisins, figs or dates should be taken during lunch. Evening meals may consist of vegetable such as spinach, fenugreek, drum sticks, cabbage, cauliflower, carrot, turnips, steamed in their own juices, and a few nuts or some fruits, such as apples, pears and grapes.

Potatoes should not be taken. No bread or any other food should be added to this diet. After two weeks on this diet, the cataract patient may start on a fuller diet on the following lines:
  • Breakfast: Any fresh fruits in season, except bananas.
  • Lunch: A large mixed raw vegetable salad with wholemeal bread or chapattis and butter.
  • Dinner: Two or three steamed vegetables, other than potatoes, with nuts and fresh fruit.
The short fast followed by a restricted diet should be repeated after three months of the commencement of the treatment and again three months later, if necessary. The bowels should be cleansed daily with a warm water enema during the fast, and afterwards as necessary.

The patient should avoid white bread, sugar, cream, refined cereals, rice, boiled potatoes, puddings and pies, strong tea or coffee, alcoholic beverages, condiments, pickles, sauces or other so-called aids to digestion.

Naturopathy for beginners [ 15-08-2013 , 02:08:00 ]

What is Naturopathy?
 
Naturopathy is a system of medicine that focuses on Natural remedies and body’s vital ability to heal and maintain itself. Treatments based on 5 elements of nature i.e. Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Space, aim to support and aid the body to heal itself. At the core of the Naturopathy is lifestyle medicine.
 
Philosophy
 
Naturopathy is a healing art based on holistic principles of the healing power of nature. This includes treating the underlying cause within the body to achieve optimal health that may have been compromised by lifestyle, genetic predisposition or dietary imbalances. Within this belief, naturopathy aims to restore vitality through supporting and stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms.
 
Modalities
 
Herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicine known to the society. The practitioner makes use of extracts and tinctures derived exclusively from plants and other natural sources. Herbal preparations can balance the whole body unlike pharmaceuticals, which only work on one specific system. Modern herbal medicine is safe and is constantly backed up by updated research.
 
Nutrition is the treatment of disorders using food as medicine. With the fast paced stressful lifestyle of our society, many of us are eating highly refined foods. This does not supply us with the nutrients we need to maintain good health. The naturopathic nutritionist uses fresh whole foods and supplements to re-establish an optimum nutritional status required for good health.
 
Hydrotherapy uses the water in different forms like baths, sprays, packs, ice, steam etc at various temperatures to get desired effect on the body. Main principle is to improve blood circulation in the affected area and thus enhancing the body’s self healing mechanism.
 
Other elements of nature are used in different forms like mud baths, mud packs, sun bath, dry heat, wet heat etc to get desired effect on the body. All these treatments play a supporting role in the healing mechanism of the body.
• Accupressure & Refloxology is based on the principle of balancing energy flow in the body and works on principles of Chinese medicine of balancing ying & yang. Most of the Nature cure centers use it as complementary treatment.
 
Exercise is used frequently as complementary treatment in musculo-skeletal conditions and for treating various pain and aches. Many Naturopathy centers offer physiotherapy treatments along with other modalities. Walking as well as supported passive exercises are also used in Naturopathy.
 
Yoga and Meditation are ancient Indian sciences mainly advocated these days for balancing the mind. Both have been scientifically proven to achieve balance between the sympathetic and para-sympathetic nervous system thus bringing balance to the mind. While many people wrongly compare Yoga to exercise, it has a great advantage over exercise in achieving a balance in our nervous system.
 
Conditions treated
Naturopaths are trained in a variety of modalities and therefore able to treat a broad spectrum of illnesses or disease states that are either acute or chronic like:
• vital organ dysfunction esp heart and kidneys
• common chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension
• respiratory conditions like asthma and bronchitis
• skin conditions like psoriasis
• anxiety and depression
• gastrointestinal and digestive disturbances
• hormonal abnormalities such as menopausal symptoms, hyperthyroidism
• allergies and auto-immune conditions like SLE, Rheumatoid arthritis etc
