Copper Vessels and Nature Cure!

Image
Nature Cure doesn't endorse the use of copper vessels and doesn't agree with the strong claims made on its benefits. We encourage the use of Mud Vessels which is more closer to Nature.

A day before one of my client is put on Tender Coconut diet, for his convenience he has stored Tender Coconut water in a copper bottle as he is out for work. After consuming the Tender Coconut water from copper bottle he vomited few times and completely exhausted. Please be cautious when storing something other than water in a copper bottle as we are not sure about the possible reactions it might trigger. We are also not sure how much copper this body can handle when it is given in a direct mineral form (when not in the form of food) so please ignore the water if the copper smell is so dominant which usually happens in the initial days of a new vessel.

Glimpses of Natural Life Style Practices - 27 to 29 Apr, Vaagai, Vellore

Image
A casual thought turned out as a fulfilling experience


Few months ago few friends expressed their interest to strengthen their daily natural life style practices and few of the participants who have attended the short workshops shared their interest to deepen their understanding, so just to experiment sent a proposal to the Community and started getting responses.

It took around a week to cleanup and make basic arrangements in Vaagai to accommodate the participants.



Due to the Hot Sun we decided to have the sessions in the open area with table fans. This is where we spent most of our time 😊🌞






Participants actively participated in Conversations on Nature Cure Philosophy & Practice and Involved in Daily Natural Life Style Practices including sunbathing, hydrotherapy applications, deep breathing practice, mindfulness practices, physical activity, healthy food preparations, etc..

Meaningful Conversations during salad preparations 😉

Live Sketching Session during a break 🎨
