The man with a ‘natural’ mission: Mr Mohan Gupta

With a house full of asthma medicines and a detailed knowledge of allopathy, Mr. Mohan Gupta had tried everything to cure his chronic asthma. Then one day, he chanced upon his future mentor and Guru, Acharya Seshadri Swaminathan and he was convinced that the chronic asthma could be cured by adopting the principles of naturopathy.

“I was able to quit taking asthma medicines altogether, within three months of following naturopathy,” Mr Gupta revealed. So convinced he was that he made it his mission to educate the masses about a drugless way of life, and encourage them to adopt natural methods of living. Thus began his second innings of life. 

In 2006, Mr. Gupta established the Natural Life Style School of Naturopathy in Delhi to give shape to his mentor’s desire. The school is a not-for-profit venture which teaches people the art of being fit by eating right and adopting natural practices. Mr. Gupta is also a member of the Delhi State Government Advisory Board of Naturopathy & Yoga (AYUSH) and the Advisory Board of International Naturopathy Organization (INO).

The naturopathic way: (design in a box and put in corner)

  • Mr Gupta believes that naturopathy is a way of life and not an alternative curative system.  
  • Naturopathy is based on the premise that the cause of all diseases is the same, that is, the build-up of toxins. The toxins can be removed by Eating right, Sun bath, Air bath, Pranayama and Spinal tub bath.   
  • Eating natural fruits and vegetables is at the heart of Naturopathy. All ailments can be cured if one learns to eat right.
  • Naturopathy is a lifestyle. Its practices and philosophies need to be incorporated in day-to-day life. Mr. Gupta conducts classes every Sunday and organises monthly residential camps to educate people about this practice.
