Embrace happiness before you lose it to illness

Embrace your happiness before you lose it to an illness

I see people everyday. Many of the people who come to consult with me are facing high fasting blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, body pains, lack of sound sleep and several other symptoms that seem to have erupted out of thin air. They have a good job that pays them handsomely, their families are happy and yet, they suffer.

He one thing thats common amongst all these people is that they are in the wanting to do what they love doing. They look so tired from doing their mundane jobs that only finance their lifestyle but doesn’t fire their passion that they fail to understand what’s wrong and where. And how can they come out of this suffering.

One such person came to me for a consultation. He looked okay but he wasn’t cheerful. So, I performed his Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis that can also reveal redundant habits, mental patterns, attitudes and your dysfunctional parts of your personality). The diagnosis revealed that he was agitated, frustrated and he was losing sleep. He also had stiffness in his neck, increasing fasting blood sugar levels and high blood pressure.

When I discussed my diagnosis with him, he wasn’t surprised. He knew why his body was throwing out these symptoms, but he wasn’t prepared to do what he so much wanted to.

He loved teaching but, he knew it would pay him only a fraction of what his current job was paying. So, he very meticulous planned for years so that he could get to living his passion. He had achieved financial independence so that his lifestyle will not fluctuate even if he failed in his assignment. Yet, his thoughts were messing up his mornings and he would sometimes be awake in the night thinking “how am I going to do this?”

Look at yourself. Have you also been hanging in such a situation and for long?

I was recently watching a video my friend made. She made a profound statement.. The how about everything is a trap. It just keeps you hanging in that space.

It’s so true. We just keep thinking how we are going to do without actually getting up and doing what we need to. The how, is such a waste of time.

Isn’t it your fear about how your future will turn out to be that stops you from doing and keeps you in the how? It’s such a powerful habit that stops you from being you.

We are all so outcome focussed because that’s what we are taught in elementary school, in business school, literally everywhere.

Instead of focusing on life by way of measuring outcomes, if you can re-orient your approach towards life to become action centric, then the results will just turn out to be not just fine but, you’ll actually begin enjoying life.

When I assist people to take that most important step, they feel it’s a free fall. They fear. They so much want to hold onto their old habits that kept them stuck. And, when they have no choice but to face their new challenges, an inner strength comes forth which takes over their pessimism and fuels their present with a new energy. They feel liberated from their shackles of unnecessary thinking. They begin to act spontaneously. In their spontaneity, healing happens.

When life happens, the body heals and supports your every step.

It’s such a wonderful feeling. Life is never for-giving. Life is for living.

Isn’t it time you took the next step?

She began wailing when she knew she just needed to love herself

woman-in-pain

Stiffnesses in the body, aches and pains are becoming a common occurrence these days. What is more alarming is that people in their mid thirties and forties are the ones who are complaining more about these symptoms.

Are you one of them who has stiffness or a sore neck or a back spasm? You’ll be surprised when you know what may be causing your stiffness and soreness in your neck and back.

A lady in her mid thirties came for a consultation. I performed her Nadi Pariksha. I studied my diagnosis and found that she had pain and suffering in her relationships and then she wasn’t sleeping well at all. She also had stiffness and discomfort in her neck and lower back.

She probably did not have a system to release her stress from her work and what she was accumulating at home.

Many women find themselves at odds against the family and find no other alternative but to give into the situation and carry on. They divert their mind in their work. This way the women are able to avoid confrontation but, in the bargain, the gap in their heart widens leaving them lacking in love and self worth and very stressed.

I chose to help this client by introducing her to a practice that will bring her back to loving herself and increase her self worth. These are a set of two mentally calming practices called the “Maypole Meditation” and “Connect With Your Cosmic Parents“.

I took her through the practices and she broke into tears and began wailing the moment she needed to embrace herself with love and accept herself despite all that had happened.

No one had ever told her in a long time how much she is loved and cared for.  She was just giving and giving and making others happy.

With these two practices, she knew what is more important for her right now. She just needed to embrace herself with love and accept herself. Everything else is secondary.

I followed up with Marma Chikitsa Therapy on her to relieve her pains and to remedy her disturbed sleep.

It’s just been a few days! She is sleeping well, her stiffness, aches and pains have almost left her and she can’t hide her childlike smile on her face.

Life is always giving back to you what you so desire. Whatever you choose to embrace, life simply responds.

How wonderful it’d be, if we always choose love and laughter over everything else.

It is possible to do so and live life beautifully just like you dream every now and then.

He loves his job but stress gives him sleepless nights

Successful people are always outcome driven. This means, you do everything you can and will do, so that you can achieve the outcome that you have charted out to accomplish. However, this commando attitude of yours comes with its baggage of stress. And such stress can produce symptoms which can take a toll on your sleep and can create several other physical symptoms such as digestive disorders, constipation, low vitamin D3, etc. One such person came for a consultation yesterday.

My client is of 44 years and came from overseas see me. He is working in an Indian company which has its overseas operations. He is a sales and marketing professional and his efforts are generating more than 80% of his company’s total profits. He loves his job.

I performed his Nadi Pariksha and realised that his sleep was bad, he was frustrated from unending stress and it was showing on his body as improper bowel evacuation, low vitamin D3, snoring and his body ached.

I shared my observation of the diagnosis with him. He said sleeplessness was the reason why he had come. He said that his success in his job made his employers want more from him and he could not handle that stress.

His initial symptoms began with  body aches. Those days, though he had disturbed sleep, he did not feel that an issue and he used the time he was awake to accomplish his tasks on hand.

He did not realise until much later that his disturbed sleep had progressed towards sleeplessness and recently he hadn’t slept for over 3 days.

I suggested he take on a few therapies some of which will help him relax his body and mind and some others that will help him pay more attention to what his body needs so that he can quickly recover from his symptoms.

I gave him Marma Chikitsa therapy before he left and that relieved much of his stress instantly. A little effort from his side will definitely put him back on track with his grit and determination and with an added backup knowledge that will keep him stress free.

Medicines did not cure her burning stomach and then she found her cure

Woman free of pain

She was 38 years of age. She was from northern India and was married to a only son of a semi-orthodox family. She had a son of 5 years. She had burning sensation in the stomach for over 6 years. She had consulted multiple doctors, taken multiple investigations including endoscopy and had taken multiple treatments. Despite all these, burning sensation in her stomach persisted.

She had come for a consultation. I performed her Nadi Pariksha. Before I could announce her diagnosis, she began narrating her history and events that transpired between her and her mother-in-law and how she felt humiliated. She broke down.

When she had finished, It was my turn. I began explaining to her how her judgments had created her emotions of anger, aggression, frustration, resentment and hatred towards her mother-in-law and those were the real reasons of her physical condition.

Sometimes, our parents or our parents-in-law are not the best examples of what we want to become in life and makes it difficult for us to respect them. It is not our parents’ or our parents-in-law’s fault. They grew up under different circumstances and their circumstances shaped them. They find no reason to change their behaviour and mannerisms or their attitude towards life.

We judge our parents and parents-in-laws based on what we experience with them. Our judgments of their attitude are mostly unconscious and sometimes conscious. All our judgments are tied to our experiences.  Little do we realise that our judgments can cause us to resent their behaviour and attitude so strongly that they manifest as physical symptoms in our body.

it is written in the ancient treatise Rāvana Nādi Pariksha; “Mānasou kāmou doshokopo bhavatyeva |” meaning – Desires that are born in the mind cause imbalances in our body and manifest as symptoms.

Desires are primarily of what we want to accomplish. These can be acceptance and appreciation from others, name, fame, money and wealth. The worst form of desire is wanting to control others’ attitude and their behaviour towards us. And that is what my client had desired. Her unrealised expectations of her mother-in-law towards her had caused such resentment in her that she had an abortion.

She finally realised that life is not tough, nor are the choices. Unhappiness, anger and fear are the real obstacles that she needs to get rid of. She has decided to transform her perspective of life.

She cannot forget her past. She can definitely make her present better. She is already feeling better.

With my experience of working with thousands of women, some of whom were raped, some who lost their children, who, with help from practices, did find their freedom from pain. I have come to realise that life is a teacher. And life teaches you where to look for your strengths and how you can become someone stronger in your values and strength. Some people find the person they look for who directs them towards freedom from pain. While some others are blinded by their ego of blame and disappointment and continue to live in pain. Nevertheless, everyone has their time of realisation.

I too have gone through extremely trying circumstances and challenges in life. When I opened myself to learning, I realised then and today, that life has definitely brought me to a better place.

Has your time come now? Look at yourself. You probably are ready to embrace a pain free life!

This is why Nadi Pariksha is absolutely necessary

After finishing my client consultation, I casually stepped out of my consultation room into the waiting room. A middle aged man was strolling in the area. He was the only other person in the room besides my team that supports me.

I called him inside my consultation room to see him. He introduced himself as an aeronautical engineer.

He was slim and looked well built. I asked for his hand to do his Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis).

From my diagnosis I could see that he had lower and upper back pain. I asked him whether he had these pains and he answered; Yes.

After my diagnosis, I asked him for his treatment record. I saw that he had taken both Allopathic and Ayurvedic treatment before and this was his third consultation. But on examination of the treatment record, I saw that the Allopathic medicine and Ayurvedic oils used weren’t appropriate for treating his particular condition. So, I asked him whether he had any benefit at all. He said he experienced no benefit from the treatments.

What I had seen with my diagnosis was that my client had pains which are caused by reduced Vayu and increased Kapha-Pitta. This means, his pains are not radiating. The pains are localized at different places. But, he received treatment which was given for symptoms caused by increase in Vayu that cause radiating pains. Because no proper Ayurvedic Diagnosis was done which could accurately diagnose the problem of the patient, the line of treatment was incorrect.

This is the reason why diagnosing a patient’s condition with Nadi Pariksha is so important. Without accurately diagnosing the patient’s root cause and actual symptoms, no treatment will be effective to the extent the patient desires, that the doctor prescribes.

My client had already spent a month taking the treatments and it was sad to notice that he had not experienced relief from pain. On the contrary, he had lost both time and money.

So, I suggested the same treatment be repeated, but, with different oils that are meant to treat his condition and, specific pre and post procedures including Marma Chikitsa.

My client is now on the road to complete recovery.

Freedom is the way

Attachment

Today a lady brought her mother to consult with me. After the diagnosis using my technique of Nadi Pariksha, I knew that she was losing sleep, was emotionally unsettled and disturbed.

My questions to her about her relationships got her teary and she began narrating her story.

This mother of 3 was born to a not so very rich parents. Though her parents were poor, they never let their children experience the lack of resources. She was well cared for, raised well with values and married off into a good family.

Her in-laws were good natured people, and her husband was also a gem of a person. She herself had three children, a boy first and then 2 girls. And the family was emotionally very closely knit and stood united. Everything was fine. Her life  was a fairly tale.

Her parents had passed on a a decade after her marriage.

One day, all of a sudden, her husband’s upper lip went aside and he couldn’t hold himself steadily. He had never had any such symptoms. A visit to the doctored that got them doing several scans and tests. The doctors revealed to the couple that her husband had been ailing with a stage 4 brain cancer. It was in the advanced stage. But, this man had no symptoms until this one episode.

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy followed which brought in all the suffering and after a 6 months struggle with the side effects of the so called treatment, he died.

The wife was broken. Her attachment to her husband had devastated her. She was so used to having her husband as her support that without him life seemed impossible. She cried as she narrated her story.

Aren’t we also attached to someone in our lives? And that someone is whom we always look forward to, be it a spouse, partner, parent, friend or a relative.

But, what will happen to us if that person we look forward to is not around for us to seek our solace? Our comfort?

In this lady’s case, she had her parents to seek solace from. When they passed on, her husband was there. when her husband passed on, she began seeking solace in her son. At all times, she needed someone to seek emotional support from. She was emotionally vulnerable at all times.

The more we attach outside of ourselves, the more anger, sorrow and grief we will experience because of the fear of separation.

There is a man in every woman and woman in every man. When we don’t connect to this inner opposite, we will want to connect to that opposite outside of us either in a parent, a spouse, a relative or even in our children. This is one of the reasons why daughters are emotionally closer to their father than to their mother and the reverse is also true.

This is also the reason why women try to find their fathers in their husbands and mothers continue to control their sons even after they have greyed. The pair of opposites must be in balance within, without which, we will look outside of ourselves to be attached to others and suffer.

There are several practices that help build this relationship with the opposite within ourself and bring in a balance so that we don’t get overtly attached .

This lady is on her path of connecting to her opposite within.

You too can learn these techniques and practice so that you can free yourself from excessive anger, sorrow, grief and fear of losing your loved one which have their root cause in having too much attachment and very less self awareness.

Your way to freedom and happiness is waiting for you.

Nadi Pariksha

Nadi pariksha

Nādi Pariksha is a diagnostic practice in Ayurveda to find the root cause of any ailment and illness in the body. The word Nādi means “artery” and Pariksha means “to examine”. It is all called as Pulse Diagnosis. According to Vedic and Yoga texts, there are 72000 or 72000 pairs of Nādi. There is no clarity on this number.

The entire body is a web of Nādi which are big, long, thick, thin as well as minuscule and microscopic. There are different names given to channels in the body. They are called; snaayu (ligaments and tendons that bind joints together and nerves),  Nādi(artery)Vasā(brain and bone marrow)Himsrā(vein)Dhamani(arteries)Dhāmani(heart)Dharātantuki(vein), jiivitajnya (artery)andSirā (veins).

So, blood vessels meaning arteries, veins, capillaries, ligaments and tendons, and any tubular organ in the body together are not called Nādi. All creatures have Nādi.

When you get your NādiParikshado not tell anything about yourself excepting your name and age. The diagnosis will reveal every symptom you have been experiencing. The diagnosis will also reveal to you the root cause of the symptom. “Identifying the root cause of your symptoms and reversing it so that you regain your good health  is our core work and this is what we do best. “

NādiPariksha can be performed on children from a very early age. 

NādiPariksha should never be done with the patient standing, talking, watching television, reading, or for that matter while performing any activity.

While checking Prakrti of a person, the patient must not bathe, exercise, perform Yogāsana, Prānayama, or indulge in any kind of prayer, chanting, reading, writing or any activity whatsoever.

We at Nadichikitsa Wellness Pvt Ltd have been performing NādiPariksha for over 17 years. From our experience, we can say that NādiPariksha is the best form of diagnosis. We can arrive at a prognosis of your physical, psychological and emotional health in totality.

We provide NādiPariksha training. We have trained over 200 Ayurvedic doctors in NādiPariksha until now.
