For anything and everything we normally look towards the West for a solution. Lot of good and bad around the world. Out in the West the perspective is to fix something immediately while in Indian perspective there is nothing immediate, with time there is always a solution and a permanent one too.
There could be a lot of overlap between the two worlds too. If we look at things more deeply there is a strong grass root in our Indian methods and practices. None of them has a shortcut though! 🙂
One thing we need to understand also is that the civilization is not like that of the West which is something of recent ages. There would be lot of mix of culture into what is being done and said. It is well known that the civilization in the Indian sub-continent is one even long before that.
There has been lot of interest from the West in the Indian practices and perspective. Though I believed in our system of the past I was not clear on certain things and there were doubts. I relied on my own style of following things.
3 persons or events or however you name it have made me feel more strong about our Indian methods of talking to body, mind, emotion and energy and our way of treatments.
One style of treating ailments is the Ayurveda. Typically in Ayurveda deals about preventing than in instant remedy. Ayurveda also says that every plant, every leaf, every root has a medicinal value. And every fruit is to be consumed. Just because of diabetes one shouldn’t restrain from eating banana. And so on and so forth.
In that line came in doctor Adishesha. He is based out of Mysore and does a visit to Bangalore on Sunday. We took our mom for a treatment and today she is free from sugar. The best part is long term medicines can be made in home itself and consumed. I also went for a check-up and within a minute he would diagnose what is the problem. He does a pulse check, checks for symptoms within the tongue. Both these combined would indicate any problem in the body.
A google search may not return his name. His mysore clinic address:
SHREE OUSHADHALAYA PANDITH ADISHESHA M.S
Opp Udaya Ravi Printers
No 1314/1 First Mn Rd 3rd Cross
Near Ballal circle
Yoga the ancient art of stretching body and bringing all elements together by breathing patterns. Sadhguru Jaggy Vasudev, hailing from Mysore but a yoga center in Coimbatore. His specialization is imparting Shambhavi Maha Mudra, inner engineering.
One can search for Isha Yoga on internet and find a lot about this program and other programs. What Sadhguru talks is nothing new or something which has not be spoken about by anybody else. What made me interested was his talks aligned with my thoughts.
I, of course wouldn’t plunge completely into Isha Yoga. Practice wouldn’t stop.
Last in this line is treating any body physical ailments by exercises. A proper stretching and concentrating on the required muscle. Recent times when my elbow started paining, I wanted some cure for it. I do not put down orthopedic doctors. They are good in their own way. But for someone like me who also does running, cycling the doctor needs to understand and connect to what am saying. For this the doctor himself should either a runner or a cyclist or a swimmer or one who dedicates some amount of time in a day for physical exercises.
In that I learnt about Dr. Gladson Johnson who runs a clinic by name Attitude Prime in Jayanagar, Bangalore. He gave only set of exercises for me and they do seem to have an effect. He has treated patients with slip disc and got them into running full marathons.
There is something that one would notice a common characteristic among all three above. Each one has a name in their own field of expertise and none of them have an ego or an attitude towards people coming to them. Something which is a cause of problem all around us. There is lot that can be learnt and a lot that can be un-learnt when one talks to them. Don’t blindly believe in me, experience it and then you would also believe.
