How Parshuram Sadhale Defeated Diabetes
It is a common misconception that type-2 diabetes cannot be controlled or cured completely. To start with, diabetes is not a disease but a condition. Yoga instructors like Ramdev Baba are actively into exercises that can cure diabetes.
After an intensive course at Ramdev Baba’s centre, Mr. Sadhale became a yoga instructor himself. His thirst for knowledge further drew him towards researching new alternate treatments like naturopathy and acupressure. He extensively read books written by Devendra Vora on acupressure and eventually became equipped enough to practice acupressure independently.
Power of Yoga and Acupressure
“Body is your temple and if you devote yourself to take care of it, it will take care of you properly!”
Mr. Sadhale has totally dedicated himself to curing mankind. He considers himself very lucky to be able to do this service. In fact, he has cured some deadly diseases like blood cancer and TB along with ailments like high blood pressure, gastric issues, liver diseases, sleeplessness, diabetes, heart disorders, asthma, stroke, and gangrene.
In an instance, when Mr. Sadhale’s wife suffered from a heart attack, he took it on himself to cure her through naturopathy and acupressure. Now she is completely fine and healthy.
The people who have been cured by Mr. Sadhale regard him nothing less than a messenger of God Himself. However, Mr. Sadhale refutes this claim modestly. He says that the body is your temple and if you devote yourself to take care of it, it will take care of you properly.
