"There has been a huge change that is brought to my health by doing regular wet packs. A few days ago, I had a throbbing headache, but I applied wet packs 3 times a day and the headache was gone."
Why did you start following the Satvic lifestyle? Any health problems?Any fitness goals?
I was suffering from hypothyroidism and had been taking medicines for the last 2 years. The doctors said that it can not be cured and that I have to be on medication forever. But, I believed otherwise. I thought that by changing my lifestyle I could cure it. I tried a couple of vegan courses as well, but they were difficult for me to follow. I was also a bit overweight and used to feel lethargic. Because of my weight and thyroid, I would also experience a frequent burst of headaches and pain in my hands. I also had this pain in my left hip for several years, that troubled me now and then. Due to all these health issues, I decided to follow the Satvic lifestyle.
What did you start doing? Tell us about your healing journey.
For me, things like pranayama, sunbathing and wet packs were easy, to practice. However, the diet was a little difficult to follow, as I was used to eating our usual properly cooked food with oil and spices. But as soon as I started making the transition, I realized, that as I was moving more towards healthy food, the happier and energized I began to feel. I was really intimidated by the concept of 16-hour fasting in the beginning, I thought I would not be able to do it, but now, I am able to fast even for 17-18 hours, easily.
What are the benefits you received by following the Satvic lifestyle?
When I get up in the morning the motivation to work comes from within. There has been a huge change that is brought to my health by doing regular wet packs. A few days ago I had a throbbing headache, but I applied wet packs 3 times a day and the headache was gone. I have also lost a substantial amount of weight in just 1 month. My TSH levels have also dropped. And I am seeing a lot of improvement in the health of my hair and skin.
Apart from the physical changes, have you noticed any mental or spiritual changes?
There is a lot more clarity of thoughtin my mind. Before Iused to stay emotionallyunstable, but, I am so much more stable now. I havereceived personal peace and content.This lifestyle has affected my life in such a way, that now I prefer to stay away from any drama, negativity and materialistic desires. I look for peace and joy in every situation.
