This was my first time at naturotherapy. This place is beautiful and great atmosphere. The weather this time around is a cold and therefore have not been able to use the pool facilities unfortunately so this is the main downfall I would say but the availability is there so shouldnt be a problem.

This was my first time at naturotherapy. This place is beautiful and great atmosphere.

They tailor everything according to the reasons you have come from the therapies to your diet and are very strict on it.
Theres timetable for you to follow with mixture of leisure time, yoga, meditation, therapies , around 2 massages daily average.
Massages are amazing as they vary day to day and its really relaxing.
There is physiotherapy acupuncture etc if your doctor prescribes that to you
You get to know lots of other people and become friends with them too
Rooms are good and very clean too.

Overall really good experience

The weather this time around is cold and therefore have not been able to use the pool facilities unfortunately so this is the main downfall I would say but the availability is there so shouldnt be a problem.

Overall - would recommended for people who need a break from day to day hectic life , detox, relaxation, massages and for pain or any other conditions

In this blog post, I cover Nimba Nature Cure Village, premium naturopathy and holistic wellness retreat in Gujarat, India.

It's that time of the year again when we bid adieu to the year gone by. On a personal note, 2019 was fantastic on all counts. A year of travel and adventure hands down - from partnering with a leading state tourism board early on to visiting Spain for promoting Madrid as a 7-star destination - I enjoyed living out of a suitcase.

And just when I thought I was done with all the traveling for this year, I was invited to experience one of the largest naturopathy centers in Gujarat by the name of Nimba Nature Cure Village. The visit took place in the last week of November.

For the uninitiated, Nimba offers a unique residential program in Naturopathy, Ayurveda and Panchakarma, Yoga and Meditation, Diet and Nutrition, Physiotherapy and other special therapies.

In 2016, Nimba was recognized as the Best Nature and Wellness Center of Gujarat. The same year, Nimba was also adjudged the proud winner of the ASSOCHAM Award for Premier Naturopathy and Wellness Retreat.

Located on the busy Ahmedabad-Mehsana Express Highway, just an hour drive from the Ahmedabad Domestic Airport, Nimba Nature Cure is a unique facility owned by the Oswal Group, operating under the aegis of Mr. Jayant Bokadia, CEO of the retreat since October 2015.

Nimba - Your Window to Overall Wellness and Healing

A visit to Nimba will most likely be the first step you'll take to restore the natural balance of your mind, body, and soul. The integrated health care center, which focuses on your overall wellness and healing, is built with the vision of reducing over-dependence on medicine for treatments.

More often than not, allopathic or science-based, modern medicine will only treat or suppress the symptom or the ill effect of a disease. If the root cause of the disease is not addressed or acknowledged, the symptom will rear its ugly head again, making you feel miserable. It's a vicious trap really, and the sooner you understand, the better!

Nimba offers totally non-invasive, drugless treatments, by leveraging modern medical advancements, ancient medical techniques, and contemporary and international therapies, combining the benefits of Nature Cure with Yoga, Meditation, Disciplined Lifestyle, etc. It doesn't matter what therapy you undergo, you'll never complain of any side effect whatsoever!

Why Nimba?

Going back to our roots, the Sanskrit name 'Nimba' was derived from the term 'Nimbati Syasthyamdadati' which means to provide good health.

The Nimba logo embraces the concept of 'healing through nature', by using our own 'life force' and inner protective mechanism.

Essentially, Nimba operates on three core principles.
1. Leverage the healing power of nature to innate the ability to heal.
2. Identify and treat the underlying cause, be it physical or emotional.
3. Remove toxic substances and situations from your life to prevent the onset of any disease. As they say, prevention is better than cure!

Team Nimba

What sets Nimba apart, in my opinion, is the experienced team of doctors, professional therapists, and support staff.

The qualified practitioners at Nimba work on your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels to ascertain the root cause of the actual problem.

The humble and dedicated team ensures that not only are your ailments cured but you are kept motivated to follow practices of Naturopathy to lead a balanced and disciplined life. Nimba hospitality is truly topnotch!

Infrastructure

Spread across a 100-acre lush green landscape, Nimba is the largest Naturopathy, Ayurvedic, Yoga and Meditation, and Physiotherapy Center in Western India, offering the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life and helping you connect with your inner self.

Unlearning and Relearning at Nimba

Nimba is unlike any other health resort or wellness destination you'll ever visit, I kid you not! A day at Nimba is action-packed with therapies, consultations, and exercises.

Nimba operates on a strong belief that 'nature can cure any disease' -- and let me just add here, at a relatively lesser cost than another system of medicine.

According to Dr. Shyamaraja Nidugala, Chief Medical Officer at Nimba, our body comprises a distinctive blend of three types of energies, which the Ayurveda describes as 'Doshas'. How these energies interact with each other denotes your nature (Prakriti), health, and well-being at large.

Dr. Nidugala believes that if you can understand the nature of your body (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha), it becomes relatively easier to attain good health and maintain it.

My consultation with Dr. Nidugala was pretty elaborate as he focused on doing a body nature analysis (which he terms as holistic, 'purna') followed by a disease analysis.

Due to the complexity of the human body, the doctor needs to know your breathing pattern, mental/psychic state, emotional state, intellectual state, and state of your soul. The doctor will also perform a Nadi Pariksha or pulse diagnosis, before recommending the best therapy for you.

First Few Days At Nimba

The initial few days at the center will truly test your will power more than anything else. You'll be expected to quickly adapt to this new way of living by making significant lifestyle changes. I'll illustrate this with examples.

If you're high on caffeine, for instance, no tea or coffee will be served inside the premises. Also, as a practice, smoking, drinking alcohol, or drugs of any kind are strictly prohibited too.

If you're fond of meat, do not expect any non-vegetarian food items here; ditto for fried food options.

You will be served nutritious Sattvic food every day; some dishes will be served additionally on the recommendation of an expert; the sooner you develop a liking for it, the better.

[Sadly, there are no cheat days at Nimba; you'll need to acclimatize to this new lifestyle quickly!]

Your daily dose of Sattvic diet includes:
* fresh, organic fruits and vegetables
* whole grains and nuts
* beans and lentils
* mildly sweet foods (natural, unrefined sugars), honey, molasses
* spices such as cinnamon, basil, coriander, ginger, and turmeric

Dr. Deepthi Konamme, Residential Medical Officer at Nimba, spoke to me in length about the importance of healthy eating.

Here are some excerpts from her interview.
* According to Dr. Deepthi, 'what you are is what you eat'.
* All of us can make lil healthy changes to our diet that can go a long way; for instance, replace sugar with natural sweeteners like jaggery or honey or replace white flour with whole grains. Easily doable, right?
* 3-4 hours of deep sleep is good enough to feel fully rested.

Dr. Harshana Valand walked me through a list of healthy food options that don't require elaborate preparation or cooking technique. She emphasized that many conditions such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) in young females can be treated by making healthy adjustments to our diet.

Here a few recommendations from Dr. Harshana w.r.t what you can include in your daily diet.
* Green juice - Made with coriander, curry leaves, spinach leaves, and bottle gourd.
* Sesame seed juice - Made with roasted sesame seeds, cardamom, and honey.
* Kodri Pulao - Made with millets, a good replacement for rice.
* Dudhi Yakhni - Made with bottle gourd (gheeya), which is rich in nutrients such as riboflavin, zinc, iron, magnesium, Vitamin C, etc.
* Cabbage coleslaw with Italian dressing - Contains shredded cabbage and sesame seed powder.
* Bhindi/Ladyfinger/Okra chutney
* Sprouts soup - Contains salt, pepper, and lime. No starch.

A typical lunch at Nimba might contain green chutney, buttermilk, dudhi tomato soup, moong chilka, palak daal, beetroot chapati, beans capsicum saute, and sprout salad (total calories - 519 kcal).

Your dinner menu would contain peanut chutney, drumstick leaves sorba, methi chapati, grated salad, galka gravy, and okra dry veg (total calories - 432 kcal).

Limited Access to the Internet

What I found particularly refreshing at the center was the limited access to the Internet. It was a complete digital detox for me - no emails, no Instagram, no Facebook, nothing - And needless to say, I loved it!

Plus the soothing, immersive and tranquil surroundings were like the perfect icing on the cake!

Packages

Staying at Nimba covers your medical consultation, psychological counseling, prescribed treatments and therapies, customized wellness diet plan, and accommodation with all modern amenities and facilities.

There are three types of rooms available at Nimba - Super Deluxe, Deluxe, and Semi Deluxe. Nimba offers comfortable 4-star accommodation, replete with modern amenities like the air conditioner, safe locker, LCD TV, etc.

Depending on what specific treatment you visit Nimba for, you still have the option to choose from the following packages.

* Stress Management
* Wellness Experience
* Detoxification
* Weight Management
* Rejuvenation
* Anti-aging
* Healing and Geriatric Care
* Annual Fitness Program

Corporate wellness programs clubbed with team building programs are also trending at Nimba. Even local hospitals have tied up with the center for the post-operative care of their patients. It's not just medical tourism that they promote; the new buzzword at Nimba is 'Wellness Tourism'.

Highlights

As far as I'm concerned, there were a lot of positives I left with, especially world-class therapies that truly resonated with me.

Crystal Healing

Learn the art of healing others via energies, without even touching the person. To walk me through the process of Crystal Healing, I had the pleasure of spending some time with Dr. Sanskriti Kurre, an energy healer at Nimba, who specializes in Reiki, hypnotherapy, etc. to cure imbalance(s) within your body. FYI if the imbalance is not cured, it can manifest into any type of emotional, physical, or stress-related disease.

A vast majority of patients who consult Dr. Kurre are those who report issues related to anger, depression, etc. A 1.5-hour hypnotherapy session that Dr. Kurre performs on her patients helps erase a painful past from their memory forever. Before the therapy, however, she must understand whether the person is physically or emotionally driven.

Intrigued by everything that Dr. Kurre had told me, I requested her to perform a 45-minute Crystal Healing Session on me, just so I could understand the modalities involved.

Holding crystals may trigger physical, emotional, or spiritual healing, as crystals are known to positively interact with your body's energy fields or chakras. While some crystals are said to alleviate stress, others purportedly improve creativity or concentration.

Dr. Sanskriti also performs pranic healing which checks, cleanses, and rejuvenates the patient.

Raga Therapy

This new therapy leverages the knowledge of using raga or music to heal. Dr. Sucheta Rakhshit performs this powerful therapy on patients to reduce stress, control diabetes, reduce high blood pressure, decrease depression, and address other health issues.

Dr. Rakhshit recommends that you listen to the music for the advised time using a headphone. In 'operative recovery' cases, music therapy is given to patients twice a day, that is, in the morning and evening.

The room should be dark when the therapy begins; if that is not possible, then cover your eyes with a dark-colored eye band.

Raga is a yoga system wherein a sequence of selected notes or swaras offer appropriate emotion in a selective combination. A raga is capable of intensifying an emotion.

Dr. Rakhshit is a trained Raga Therapist and she uses a combination of ragas to cure patients. Personally speaking, I loved the melody of Raga Jogiya, Bhairavi, Malhar, and Darbari.

* Raga bhairavi helps in curing asthma, cold, and sleeplessness.
* Raga malhar, sorath, and jaijiwanti are used to get rid of mental stress.
* Raga sarang cures headache
* Raga darbari improves heart condition
* Raga pancham reduces stomach disorders
* Raga shivranjini enhances memory.

Ragas are no longer just music to the ears but also a form of treatment, recovery, prevention, and improvement. Who would've thought the melodious Indian Classical Music could be used one day for quick post-operative recovery, treating infertility, preventing natal handicaps in new-borns, and developing concentration and memory in youth and children.

Yoga and Meditation
It is a known fact that yoga and meditation help to balance and detoxify the mind, body, and soul. Meditation gufas are specially built for you to relax, reflect, and recharge, helping you connect with your soul.

If you're fond of Yoga, you can connect with Dr. Poonam Babaria. One session you must ask Dr. Babaria to conduct is the Pool Zumba, which isn't just a way to have fun while you burn calories but also an effective alternative to traditional water aerobics.

A Visit To Gaushala

Gaushalas are protective shelters for cows. A walking distance away from the retreat is a quaint lil Gaushala, which houses both cows and buffaloes. Here the focus is on treating these animals well.

I loved spending time with the cows at the Gaushala; they were friendly and even posed for a photo-op. The milk from the cows at this Gaushala is consumed by the guests and staff at Nimba.

I even tried my hand at pottery, near the Gaushala.

Final Words

Naturopathy is truly a way of life. Visit Nimba for rejuvenation, detoxification, or treatment of disorders. Let us support them to build a holistic ecosystem for spreading awareness about Naturopathy and other alternative methods of treatment.

I was in NIMBA for 8 days detox therapy program last month ,it was very pleasurable experience,
Right from front office staff Naba ,Kitul very supportive ,Doctors named Arun , Harshana ,Poonam are very cooperative and kind , overwhelmed by their supportive nature ,Therapies are very nice including therapist,they have personalized treatment for every individual & give personal attention to every individual .
As soon as you entered NIMBA you could instantly feel the place so calm and clean with its own beauty which was pleasing to the eyes ,its far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
It had everything under one roof from food ,therapies , massages ,yoga hall ,swimming pool ,physio rooms and also entertainment area.
We usually wake up around 4:30 to 5 AM for doing our morning kriyas including yoga and hydro walk . The days would continue with all the different kinds of massages etc followed by therapeutic yoga in the evening , talk shows on different health issues and meditation .
We have to finish our dinner around 8 PM after which we have to go to bed early so that we would wake up early in the morning .
It was amazing experience and one should definitely visit NIMBA.

My Best wishes to Team of Nimba ..

I had very recently been to the Nimba Naturopathy center at Mesana. As soon as I entered I could instantly feel the place so calm and clean with its own beauty which was pleasing to the eyes.
It had everything under one roof from food, therapies, massages, yoga hall, swimming pool,physio rooms and also entertainment area.
I used to wake up at 4.30 for all my morning kriyas including yoga and hydro walk. The days would continue with all the different kinds of massages etc followed by therupatic yoga in the evenings, talk shows on different health issues and meditation.
After dinner we could do anything we wanted. We would retire to bed early.
There was no scope of getting bored at all as besides the entertainment area, there was a library too for book lovers.
As far as food is concerned A special menu was given to people with different problems and reasons. I somehow loved the taste as I knew that everything else including food that they serve is meant for detoxification and better health. If one expects the food to be as delicious as at any restaurant they have come to the wrong place.
The Drs/ consultants were very helpful and saw to it that each one of us gets a good treatment depending on our ailments. The staff working there were always smiling and ever so helpful.
They became like our extended family.
And overall a wonderful experience.
