Bangalore - 560073
What you see - Jindal Nature Cure Institute is known to be among the best institutes of naturopathy and has people coming in from across the world. It was built on 120 acres of land on Tumkur Road, Bangalore by industrialist Suresh Jindal, a naturopath.
The institute has natural scenic beauty with lush green pathways, fountains, a natural lake, fields, exotic chirping birds and landscaped gardens.
What you get – Jindal Institute has combined the benefits of yoga and naturopathy to help you with ailments like hyperacidity, obesity, spondylitis, arthritis, migraines, respiratory problems etc. A strict vegetarian diet is offered here. Admission is based only on the basis of a medical problem. So it’s unlike a spa where you can step in for detoxification. The treatment could vary between 10 and 40 days. Once you are here you are confined to the institute and its rules and regulations.
A typical day at Jindal starts at 5 AM where you wake up to the sound of soothing bhajans. You are expected to go for a brisk walk and then attend the yogic kriya sessions for respiratory disorders and hyperacidity between 5.50 AM and 6.50 AM. This is followed by a laughter session near the amphitheatre at the lake, followed by an open yoga session in Hindi and English.

Basically all activities are focused towards physical and mental well-being.
