Coming to Nisargopchar Ashram for my health was one of my life’s good decisions. It changed my thoughts, life and lifestyle completely; showing me a way of life. I am extremely grateful for all the doctors, administration and other staff there, for their kind hospitality and services.
I came here for taking naturopathy treatment for myself. When I took checkup by Dr. NIsal, I told him that I was examined by mahatma Gandhi. He was very surprised because he had so much respect for Mahatma Gandhi and he asked me to put it into words as it is. So I did so. The pre-independence period independence came infront of my eyes, Mahatma Gandhi and Jawahar lal Nehru were cheering everywhere. Freedom was just a matter of time; March 1946 Mahatma Gandhi came to Uruli at the end of march. I was living in Daund. Therefore, it was understood that Mahatma Gandhi would come to Uruli. By train I came here to see him that day I attended evening prayer meeting. They appeared from far, around 400-500 people attended that meeting. That time I got opportunity to get his autograph. When I came to know mahatma Gandhi will be checking the patient & going to suggest treatment, I stayed that night and next day morning I went for checkup. That time mahatma Gandhi's stay was in Mr Datar's bungalow. There they checked up the patients. Really I didn’t have any problem, but for meet to mahatma Gandhi, to talk with him two words, I become a patient & sat in patient line. Gandhiji came & started the checkup of patients. And as per health problems he suggested treatment to patients. When my number came they asked me what's your health problem, I answered in Hindi - I have chest throbbing. They picked my left hand & checked pulse rate, then suggested some information & called volunteer to give me katibath treatment & other naturopathy treatment. After my checkup, at 9 am sharp he went for morning walk. I was among those fortunate people, who met great & holy person like Gandhiji and got his treatment as well, this became unforgettable and valuable moment for me. Since then I became follower of nature cure.
I am Shubhamkar Mule, by profession and would like to express my account of the experiences at your renowned Institution. I have visited this ashram twice in 2 years, coincidentally during Diwali itself for 2 weeks. As a person who absolutely loves food, I had gained a lot of weight during the initial years of my college, , almost 40 kilos. Then one day it dawned upon me that I should do something about it , or else I would be exposed to further complications at a very young age. Hence I started with dieting and cycling to college in the heat of Nagpur, thus coming down from 125 kilos to 120 kilos. But it wasn't enough, and soon I realised that I had hit what they call a weightloss plateau. My mother, suggested that I visit this ashram. To be very honest, I literally had no hopes as I had heard stories that you end up gaining your lost weight. But then I thought that anyway I wasn't in a good shape, so why not give it a sincere shot.As they say, it turned out to be quite a game changer and I lost 10 kilos in 2 weeks and was down to 110. As per prescribed diet by the esteemed Dr Abhishek, I kept following the same and came down to 102 kilos by 2017. This is when things took a turn and I felt I was losing motivation because I had hit another plateau. Hence I visited the ashram once again in Diwali, I came down to 96 kilos in 2 weeks. I was completely blown away by the natural methods and techniques used in the ashram, and continued to follow as prescribed for around 3 more weeks. I reached 90.4 kilos and the feeling was exhilarating. I couldn't believe that I had come full circle in a span of 6 years, by gaining and losing 35 kilos. Now I am more than ready to gain some real muscle mass. I must say that the staff is very gentle and polite, the facilities are top notch and the team of doctors and their dedication is towards the patient and the institution is outstanding. I would like to conclude by saying that once you leave the ashram and go back to your old ways, naturally you are going to gain back all the weight. Thus weightloss is not a destination but an overall change of lifestyle which needs to be incorporated in our daily routine for longevity and blissful sustenance.Once again I would like to express my gratitude towards this ashram alongside my family, friends and colleagues who have stood by me throughout. Herewith I am attaching a brief series of images of my weightloss journey so far.
It is a nice ashram very important to review health. That way this is a natural place.
I have heard the name of this organization for last fifty years. I am glad to witness the Ashram. The premises, Ashram routine, kitchen & treatment are laid down thoughtfully and well maintained. If research is added to naturopathy, it ll empower the people to adopt and stay healthy. My best wishes to the team.
I came here with my mother when I was a child. After that I was just listening to the information about the naturopathy center here. Today I suddenly got a chance to see this center and felt very contented.
It is my first visit to this trust. The care taker & one of the trustee with one doctor attend me. They show me area to his naturopathy clinic. It is very pleasant and calm. Staff members are found to be sufficient. The trust is working well. The staff members. Trustee & doctors are found to be dedicated to the work. It is very nice place. Thank you.
Very nice place & environment. The most important thing is that the people here are very nice. Everyone from the doctors to the room cleaning staff is very nice. The beauty of nature of this place makes you want to come here again and again.
In a world where money is the order of the day, there exists such an amazing charitable organization which strengthens our faith in humanity. All doctors and staffs serve whole heartedly. It’s a beautiful, serene and lush green campus; Had both Joy and contentment to its fullest extent.
I was overwhelmed when I was saw this organization. Seeing their work, I actually remembered Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave’s thoughts which I read from books but never knew that their thoughts have made real in this very place. Its overwhelming to see that the Gandhian thoughts are preached for better life.
The organization has kept alive the teachings of Mahatma Gandhiji by way of effective demonstrations & practice. It was indeed an inspiring and invigorating day that I spent at the ashram. My best wishes to you all. May you continue to travel on the path laid by Gandhiji & contribute towards heathier Maharashtra.
From 12 June to 14 June 2014 I got opportunity to stay in ashram. I was impressed by ashram staff’s hospitality, humility and atmosphere of peace. Satvik food, nature and smiling doctor’s make all the ailments go away automatically. Ashram’s management arranged my lecture for two days which gave me lot of joy and funtime for the sadhakas. This is my 11th visit in ashram. Every time I come here, it feels I am at the heaven on earth.
Coming here was a fantastic experience. It is a new world altogether. The world which should be but alas! In our stressed life in the city we are doing what should not be!! The environment, management, doctors, food schedule and general approach is commendable. We leave with a promise to take home a lot of things taught to us during our wonderful days & come back soon.
Nisargopchar has been a home away from home for 6 days for me, the experience which I will always remembered. I enjoyed the serene atmosphere, the peace, the nature around me. The core was the concern of the staff and the feeling of selfless service in them, this was something rare which I experienced here. Thank you all for their support and company. I have no doubt in my mind that the trust will be able to preserve the Gandhian values which makes it different from all such organizations across the county it is to the credit of the organization that it has flourished without any support from the Govt, but I do hope that the unique work and the health care provided by the trust will be recognized by those who are in a position to support such institutions for the sake of thousands of peoples who can be benefitted by this.
Naturopathy is the alchemy of life change says by Mahatma Gandhi. Today’s diversity of pollution has hampered for nature and human relationship. The human mind and heart are in this terrible crisis. Naturopathy Ashram established by Gandhiji in 1946 is praise worth. Last 40 years my health is good through this center. May this centre continue to prosper in view of the life and thought of Mahatma Gandhi and may the benefit of purification of mind, body as well as ethics be imparted to the suffers. I have no doubt in my mind that the trust will be able to preserve the Gandhian values which makes it different from all such organizations across the county it is to the credit of the organization that it has flourished without any support from the Govt, but I do hope that the unique work and the health care provided by the trust will be recognized by those who are in a position to support such institutions for the sake of thousands of peoples who can be benefitted by this.
While living this competitive and stressful life as an artist, I used many therapies for illness. All of a sudden the name of this Ashram described by P. L Deshpande came to my mind coincidently I come here and I got treatment here a few years ago and my relationship was connected with this ashram. The body is mentally stable and back to being a part of life whisked away by various pollutants. The ashrams that come to mind should be different places so that the person who is a part of the same proximity and the forgotten person will try to find the meaning of living once again. Keeping in view the purpose for which Mahatma Gandhi established this center, which treats both body and mind according to the laws of nature, I wish that this ashram will continue to prosper.
This naturopathy center is last institute of Mahatma Gandhi which established by himself. Bapuji’s student Balwant Singhji niece Hoshiyari bahan had chosen to serve this ashram for her entire life. We also want to research in Sewagram about nature treatment; Sewa was favorite subject of bapuji. I hope that uruli will continue to guide us and other seekers from him.
I have been a permanent visitor of the Nisargopchar Ashram. While I am here today, I am cherishing my old memories. Late Balkobaji Bhave and Dr. Manibhai Desai not only stayed here but provided inspirations to the people to love nature and to involve in the activities of rural development. I would like to congratulate the doctors and other members of the staff for their dedication and service to mankind.
I have a very close emotional relationship with the nisargopchar ashram for many years. I also stayed here many times to take treatment. According to motto ‘ Shrariramadyam Khalu Dharmasadhanam’ good health is life this naturepathy centre is a boon for it. The doctors and their colleagues are working enthusiastically and consciously. Keeping and analyzing the health improvement records of every patient. Their services are appreciable. Physical improvement has made us to improve in the right direction. Thank you to all! This ashram makes sadhakas life healthy enough to stay disease free and maintain good health.
When I came here on 7th April. I was totally unaware of fast, could never fast. After going through the regimen I am now on juice fast, this could cure all body illnesses I belive. Disease and sickness is the result of eating i.e. wrong eating. Ashram is run well on the principles of simplicity which needs to be maintained & things have been organized in an efficient manner. Fasting leaves a person energetic and revitalized. In ashram books collection is very impressive with large number of rare books available. Doctors are always willing to discuss & help. I am happy to visit the institution.
I am very much sure that nature cure ashram works very well and I am happy to know the vision of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Manibhai Desai.
Very nice, new style a unique experience without medicines was found here, we felt it. We are going from here with the wish that we can bring this teaching in everyday life. May our power to walk on this path increase, be courageous, you must give us this goodwill. Thank you.
On behalf of all the participants I want to thank you very much for having us here. Nisargopchar has been our little paradise for these last ten days. We have enjoyed the full moon, the chanting of the birds, the nature around us add the welcoming smile of all the staff members. Thank you Dr. Nisal, thank you Dr. Ketkar, thanks to all those who have allowed us to do this experience.
What a delight to see the creation of Mahatma and his team growing! Way of growth of human system was emphasized. Now the modern medical world is realizing its value and trying to incorporate the same though ‘spiritual dimension of health.’ To augment this global trend, we need to talk their language- scientific research. Yes, we will be happy to associate & help- leading to publication in indexed journals of repute.
It is a privilege to visit this nature cure center, where also the last remains of pujya Manibhai were laid. This ashram teaches us that living in harmony with nature is the pathway to a healthy and protective life. I wish for the continued growth of this nature cure movement spearheaded by this ashram.
