Want to Quit Smoking? Naturopathy Can Help You

Want to Quit Smoking? Naturopathy Can Help You

By: Nimba - March 23, 2021

  • What causes people to smoke? When we polled people, we learned that smoking boosts stamina, helps us to stay awake for longer while driving, while under stress at work, and so on. Some people believe that smoking makes them more alert and concentrated, as well as relaxes them. Research shows that smoking increases dopamine levels in the brain, increasing feelings of satisfaction and pleasure, and also strengthens the urge to keep smoking.
  • Majority of smokers began when they were teenagers. Those who have smoking friends and/or parents are more likely to begin smoking earlier than those who don’t. Research shows that genetic factors also play a major role in whether or not a person becomes addicted to nicotine. Also, people who are going through a difficult work/life process, have lost a loved one, or have been affected by social groups/media, etc.
  • Nicotine, which is highly addictive, is the main component of cigarettes. Nicotine has a wide range of effects on the body, including the brain. Within 10 seconds, nicotine enters your bloodstream and reaches your brain. It causes the brain to release adrenaline, which produces a pleasant and energetic buzz. However, the buzz dissipates quickly. Then you may feel tired or depressed, and you may crave that buzz again; this is how nicotine addiction develops.
  • Behind feeling of pleasure, Smoking has numerous negative effects on the body, including eye vision, lungs, brain, heart, cavity and gums, immune system, fertility, sex life, and skin.
  • Our 14-day De-Addiction Retreat Program at Nimba health village teaches the benefits of a smoke-free lifestyle to those who are willingly want to live an addiction-free life. Our goal is to learn why and how you become addicted to smoking, as well as how smoking negatively affects your entire body and life, as well as your family environment, especially when you have kids around you.
  • Nearly 70% of smokers claim they want to quit smoking when they acknowledge the benefit of quitting smoking. But the success rate of quitting smoking without assistance is as low as 3-5 percent. Since nicotine withdrawal symptoms include unpleasant physical and emotional responses such as depression, frustration, insomnia, or anxiety, exhaustion, restlessness, and irritability, Withdrawal symptoms are the main reason for de-motivation for quitters. Nicotine dependency is what makes it difficult for most people to quit smoking.
  • The main aim of this program at our Nimba health village is to assist you in overcoming trigger points through natural treatments and a holistic approach. We not only empathize with stopping smoking, but we also recognize and address the smoking causes with our therapeutic rituals, which include Naturopathy, Ayurveda, Yoga, Personalized Meditation, Diet and Nutrition, Breathing Exercises, Reiki Healing, Raga Therapy, and Counseling Sessions to detox and recover from smoking/nicotine withdrawal symptoms. The program ensures that you become both mentally and physically healthier.

It is necessary not to give up after many attempts at stopping smoking. If you need clinical assistance, we provide one of the best environments for “kicking the habit/getting rid of”. Our knowledgeable staff is here to assist and inspire you in your efforts to quit smoking.

Free the Chaos of your Mind with Meditation

By: Nimba - February 11, 2021

Peace. A state of mind that is longed for by all, but can be barely grasped by a few. There are several factors in our day-to-day life that practically grab the idea of peace by the feet and drag it out of our minds every time we even think of it. From work stress to social responsibilities, the distractions are endless. Not only does this make peace hard to achieve, but it also affects our mental and physical health.

Fortunately, there is one activity that can help you free the chaos of your mind: meditation. Being mindful and meditation induces a heightened sense of awareness and improves the attention span. Studies have shown that meditation can also help relieve stress and manage anxiety. Moreover, it improves memory as well.

The peacefulness attained by meditation lasts much longer than the process of meditation. This means that if stress appears at an unreasonable time, you will know the means of redirecting it. Meditation teaches you how to respond instead of reacting to challenging situations.

When meditation is combined with the power of mantra chanting, you can understand the magic of aligning all your chakras and influencing your nervous system. The vibrations created by meditation and mantra changing will eliminate any kind of negativity from your mind and free it from the chaos of everyday life.

At Nimba, we provide dedicated meditation spaces as well, called meditation caves, wherein you can connect with your inner self and have the utmost awareness of your existence.

You can choose to opt for Concentration Meditation, which aids in gaining absolute control over all mental turmoil and disciplines the mind to attract positive energies, or you can opt for Mindfulness Meditation, which obliges you to direct your focal point towards the random, tumultuous thoughts that grow in your mind naturally. This form of meditation allows you to explore the infinite possibilities of your mind and the freedom it experiences.

Whichever mode of meditation you choose, you will certainly find yourself to be more at peace and more in love with yourself and life, once you embrace the holistic development of your mind and soul at Nimba Nature Cure Village.

Moreover, Udvartana is not a sporadic treatment. It can be included in your dincharya and can be performed daily.

The term ‘Udhvarthanam’ comes from the Sanskrit words ‘Urthdhva’, which means upward and ‘Varthanam’, which means movement or motion. In Udvarta, an invigorating full-body massage is done in a rhythmic upwards motion, against the growth of the body hair. The massage is done using a herbal powder or pastes made of stimulating ingredients such as harad, bibhitaki, amla, deodar, senna, kulthi and others. Apart from treating obesity, Udvartana is largely recommended for diabetic neuropathy, paralysis, sciatica and indigestion as well.

The Powerful Healing Benefits of Naturopathy

The Powerful Healing Benefits of Naturopathy

By: Nimba - January 18, 2021

Nature is truly miraculous and has the power to heal the human body and mind in the most ingenious ways. The wondrous elements of nature have unparalleled medicinal properties. It bears the capability to cleanse the body and soul from within instead of relying on providing temporary cures. Although the mainstream, western healthcare system ruled the world for quite some time, people have now begun to revisit the roots of natural healing remedies.

The school of medicine that gathers these remedies together is Naturopathy. Holistic wellbeing is Naturopathy’s utmost priority, and its major aspects involve prevention, cure, and promotion of wealth. It strives to strike a balance between your mind and body’s wellbeing and it provides it with the innate power to heal itself. It focuses on diving deep into the roots of the problem and then finding an effective solution to cure it completely, rather than curing it at a superficial level. There are several healing benefits of Naturopathy and it’s a practice that people should consider the following.

It focuses on disease prevention
Naturopathy focuses on uprooting the problem from its root cause and identifying the underlying reason for the condition. It not only heals the condition or ailment, it also provides ways and mechanisms to minimise or prevent the illness. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, the practice of Naturopathy is based exactly on this principle. It tries to devise ways to prevent the condition before it worsens.

It uses traditional and natural treatment methods
Naturopathy utilises the body’s self-healing properties to cure any illness. This means that the chances of developing any side effects are almost negligible. Unlike western medicines, here, the entire body is examined including the lifestyle of the person, mental wellbeing, nutrition and eating habits, sleep pattern etc. after which treatment is recommended to the person by a naturopath.

It brings self-awareness in a person
The process of Naturopathy helps a person connect to their inner-self and gives them the ability to comprehend mind, body and thoughts better. When a person gets to know their own body in a better way, they begin to understand it’s language and what it is trying to communicate. Eventually, the person can begin listening to their own body’s problems. Hence, it increases the self-awareness of a person brings about an amalgamation of physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.

It works in synchrony with western medicines
Since Naturopathy does not essentially have side effects, it can work well with western medicines, if guided accurately. Western medicines can provide instant relief while traditional healing remedies like Naturopathy can work alongside to cure the problem of its roots.

The trained Naturopaths at Nimba Nature Cure Village always focus on restoring the natural body functions by trying to get the body to heal itself.

All across the world, obesity is being observed as one of the fastest-growing issues. The rapid increase in sales and production of the fast-food sector is the most pressing factor for people becoming increasingly overweight. Obesity is a major problem in itself, and to top it, obesity is backed by several other diseases and ailments such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, complications in pregnancy, certain types of cancer, etc.

Age, menopause, slow metabolism, pregnancy, convenience and big bones are just some of the many excuses people give for their obesity. What they don’t realise is that if directed to the right path, obesity and the problems related to it can be cured with comparative ease. One can choose to opt for bariatric surgery for weight loss, however, we would advocate natural treatment through naturopathy for obesity. Naturopathy, as opposed to other surgeries, identifies and gets to the base of the problem and uproots it from the grassroots level. It focuses on holistic healing rather than simply eliminating the ailment from the body temporarily.

One mistake that almost every patient makes is going on random diets. Needless to say, it is a futile practice. Simply dieting is not enough to get rid of obesity. It just makes one feel deprived of food, the nutrition is generally inadequate, they don’t address cravings, they upset the body’s metabolism, and they don’t treat the cause, only the symptoms.

When one chooses the naturopathic route to weight loss and getting rid of obesity, they are signing up for a wonderful programme where their blood sugar level is balanced and insulin sensitivity is improved. Naturopathy boosts the BMR and stimulates thermogenesis. Naturopathic cure for obesity focuses less on diet and more on correcting the underlying imbalance of the body. This creates a plan of care by making lifestyle changes which support the long-term sustainability of health.

Our body has wonderful capabilities along with the intrinsic instinct to heal by itself. Naturopathy merely identifies and removes the barriers of self-healing such as poor diet and low self-esteem. The purpose of external intervention is only to provide support. The treatment plans and guidance of naturopathic cure of obesity is always personalised, for every patient has a unique background of physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, sexual and spiritual makeup.

At Nimba Nature Cure Village, you can find the best quality naturopathy treatment for obesity and weight loss, for Nimba not only focuses on curing the problem, but it also gives importance to the holistic wellbeing of the patient. Their courses are customised according to the needs of the patient and their trained naturopathy experts take every little detail into consideration while healing the patient.

By: Nimba - December 11, 2020

An ancient science, Ayurveda originated in India centuries ago. It focuses on restoring the balance of the life forces called doshas in the body. There are three doshas, namely Vatt (wind), Pith (bile) and Kapha (phlegm), and Ayurveda brings a balance amongst these three.

A blend of two Sanskrit words, “Shiro” (meaning: head) and “Dhara” (meaning: flow), Shirodhara is an essential healing technique in the field of Ayurveda. In Shirodhara treatment, a liquid such as oil, milk, buttermilk or water is poured with a controlled consistency onto the forehead. Generally, the treatment concludes with a relaxing scalp or head massage.

Shirodhara treatment has a very calming effect on the mind and body. It relaxes the person and has a soothing effect on the mind. Research has also found that it can improve sleep quality, deal with insomnia better, and also reduce stress and anxiety.

First, you will be asked to lie down on your back and relax. Then, the liquid you choose for your Shirodhara will be heated to match your body temperature which will then be placed in a bowl with a hole in it. This bowl is either hung by a stand or held by the practitioner over your head.
The heated liquid will drip through the hole in the bowl in a way that it lands between your eyebrows. If you want, this treatment can be followed by a massage. Shirodhara treatment approximately lasts for 30 to 90 minutes and is extremely relaxing.

The most popular oil used in Shirodhara treatment is sesame oil because it is neutral and mixes well with essential oils.

Additionally, your practitioner may mix a variety of essential oils or ayurvedic herbs for a better healing process.
