Achievements


NATURAL LIFE HOSPITAL

Nature Life Hospitals is a non-profit health organization working to educate the people of the country on the need to learn and practise holistic health habits based on naturopathy traditions as expounded and practised by Mahatma Gandhi and other celebrated Naturopaths of India like Lakshmana Sharma and P R RVarma. It also carries out programmes to propagate Gandhian/Sarvodaya ideas and values, particularly the core values of truth and nonviolence. We work among various constituencies of people and undertake education in the sense of conscientisation and training in health hoping to lead the masses of people towards the goal of health Swaraj.
Nature Cure

Naturopathy aims at providing the life force, prana, to the body by protecting it from internal and external threats. It helps in physical and mental wellbeing. This can be achieved by harmonious and coordinated functioning of the five elements of nature. Control over senses is the foundation of good health. A well planned life and positive thinking has a favourable effect on the healing process. Simple or satvic food, proper rest, sound sleep, cleanliness, and peaceful mind are the features of a planned life style. Nature cure health experts do not believe in giving poisonous drugs to kill germs. They rather purify the blood and tissues to develop immunity. Lowered vitality and increase of toxic and morbid matter in the body causes a diseased state.
Aruvi & Kuruvi

Hygienic, tasty and healthy. That’s how you’ll describe the food here. No cooked food is refrigerated to be warmed up later or rehashed to form new concoctions The entire concept in these restaurants is to immunize your body against chemicals. Three of Aruvi are in Ernakulam and one in Mannarkkad, Palakkad.
