Our Inspiration

Nisargopachar Kendra was established in 1978 by Vadodara Jilla Sarvodaya Mandal, a registered charitable trust. The activities of the trust are inspired by the common ideology of Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave and Jayprakash Narayan.

"The ordinary doctor is interested mostly in the study of disease. The nature curist is interested more in study of health. His real interest begins where that of the ordinary doctor ends."
- Mahatma Gandhi

The principle of nature cure is founded on the theory of Panchamahabhuta (पंचमहाभूत), that the body is made of five universal elements – space (आकाश-akash), air (वायु-vayu), fire (अग्नि-agni), water (जल-jal) and earth (पृथ्वी-prithvi) and that diseases are caused by an imbalance in the state of these elements. Natural therapies remove the imbalances (विकृति-vikruti) of the elements by removing the causative factors and bring the elements back to their natural state (प्रकृति-prakruti). Therefore, it is not only a treatment system but a way of living in line with the laws of nature so that people can enjoy a disease free and healthy life.

Many diseases of the body are born due to the accumulation of toxins produced during the process of digestion. Normally, these toxins are excreted as the body’s waste, but due to an incorrect diet and lifestyle, negative mental attitude, stress and a lack of proper exercise, vital force is diminished and these toxins accumulate in the body and eventually cause the disease. By developing a healthy lifestyle involving a natural and balanced diet, a proper daily routine, maintaining physical and mental hygiene, regular exercise, cultivating positive thinking and proper relaxation, we can restore and rejuvenate our health.

Personalized treatment programs are devised by the doctors at the Centre, depending upon the medical condition of individual health-seekers. Our integrated treatment plan involve various therapies such as Fasting, Natural diet, Yogic deep relaxation techniques, Counseling, Acupressure, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy and naturopathic treatment such as Oil massage, Mud-bath, Mud-pack, Tub-bath, Steam-bath, Enema, and Sirodhara. Therapies are provided by trained technicians and supervised by qualified Naturopaths. There are separate treatment rooms for ladies and gents. A full-time medical doctor-cum-Naturopath live on the campus.

"If man achieves victory over this body, who in the world can exercise power over him? He who rules himself rules over the whole world."
- Vinoba Bhave

Do you accept patients with acute diseases?

Acute infectious diseases like meningitis, typhoid fever, acute severe malaria, leprosy, tuberculosis are not accepted at the Centre. Once the condition is under control and the patient is no more infective, he/she can undertake naturopathic treatment for detoxification. Patients with a history of heart attacks or strokes can also undertake naturopathic treatment once they are stable.

Is it mandatory to eat ashram food while on treatment?

Dietary restriction is one of the important aspects of treatment in Naturopathy. It helps eliminate the toxins. The health-seeker may not benefit from the treatment program if he/she does not follow the prescribed diet and restrictions. Moreover, it may be harmful to take solid food while the health-seeker is fasting.

Why is a minimum of 10 day’s stay required?

Nature cure treatment is a slow process. The healing is based on the elimination of toxins. Nature takes its own time to eliminate toxins. Depending on the condition, it may take even longer for the treatments to be effective, but normally, it is observed that a minimum of 10 days is required to see the effect of detoxification.

मुझे यहा आ कर बहुत सिखने को मीला । जब पहेले से बहुत ज्यादा Health Conscious हो गया हुं। केन्द्र की पूरी व्यवस्था बहुत ही Organized, Efficient और Systematic है । केन्द्र मे वक्त का पूरा पूरा खयाल रखा जाता है । हर एक दर्दी का पर्सनल ध्यान रखा जाता है । यहा के सभी कर्मचारी मदतकारी है और दोस्ताना है । योगा Session से मुझे बहुत सिखने को मिला । “Obesity, Diet, Healthy LifeStyle और Toxins And Stress” – दोपहर के लेकचर सभी बहुत अच्छे थे ।
