The yogi with the big beard and healthy smile who wears saffron robe and shows breathing exercises and yoga is known as Swami Baba Ramdev. He has helped a tremendous number of people regain their health and vitality. I attended his first shivir in Hainault, Essex - that was his first big venture outside India. I was deeply impressed with his style and his persona. He is a true messenger of goodness, come to share with humanity the gift of good health which we can rekindle within each of us.
He has a range of herbal products which are effective in controlling diabetes, cholestrol, and even (I believe) swine flu (the herbal is known as Sanjeevni for swine flu).
The shop in Ilford is at 855 High Road, Goodmayes, Ilford, Essex, IG3.
The phone number is 0208-590 7900.
It is best to make an appointment before visiting.
Normally it is open only on Saturdays, 10.30 to 4.30.
Mr Wilson here is one of the best masseurs, and does wonders for frozen shoulders.
Baba Ramdev is currently in India, and if there was such a category, he is worthy of being nominated for the Nobel Prize.
He has helped people restore their health, even from cancer. His knowledge of health and wellness is marvellous. There is Divine inspiration behind what he does. Jot se jot jaga-teh chalo, prema keh Ganga bahateh chalo. (Spread the Divine light, spread the Divine love).
