Practice of Nature Cure

Swami Sivananda (Author)

Dealing with a wide range of subjects on the natural way of living and treatment of diseases, the most striking feature of the present work is that it is completely free from any bias or prejudice against other systems of medicine. On the other hand, its approach is synthetic, which lays great emphasis on the practical way of treating diseases-mainly through observing the natural rules of living, improving the general standard of health and harnessing the forces of nature as curative agents.

Individual treatment of a number of common diseases, including that of women and children, the science of heliotherapy, chromotherapy, hydrotherapy, air-therapy as also other allied subjects as dietetics, mental therapeutics and spiritual healing, are included in the thirty-three chapters of this work.

Tenth in the "Health and Long Life Series", Practice of Nature Cure, is preceded by the author's already well-known works as Family Doctor, Health and Long Life, Health and Happiness and A Boon to Diabetics.

As it is naturally expected, the central outlook of the work is based on spirituality.

About the author

Swami Sivananda

Born on the 8th September, 1887, in the illustrious family of Sage Appayya Dikshitr an several other renowned saints and savants, Sri Swami Sivananda had a natural flair for a life devoted to the study and practice of Vedanta. Added to this was an inborn eagerness to serve all and an innate feeling of unity with all mankind. His passion for service drew him to the medical career; and soon he gravitated to where he thought that his service was most needed. Malaya claimed him. He had earlier been editing a health journal and wrote extensively on health problems. He discovered that people needed right knowledge most of all; dissemination of that knowledge he espoused as his own mission. It was Divine dispensation and the blessing of God upon mankind that the doctor of body and mind renounced his career and took to a life of renunciation to qualify for ministering to the soul of man. He settled down at Rishikesh in 1924, practised intense austerities and shone as a great Yogi, saint, sage and Jivanmukta. In 1932 Swami Sivananda started the Sivanandashram. In 1936 was born The Divine Life society. In 948 the Yoga-Vedanta Forest Academy was organized. Dissemination of spiritual knowledge and training of people in Yoga and Vedanta were their aim and object. In 950 Swamiji undertook a lightning tour of India and Ceylon. In 953 Swamiji convened a 'World Parliament of Religions'. Swamiji is the author of over 300 volumes and has disciples and creeds. To read Swamiji's works is to drink at the fountain of Wisdom Supreme. On 14th July, 1963 Swamiji entered Mahasamadhi.
