New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is undergoing naturopathy treatment for high blood sugar and cough in Bengaluru, will return to the city on Monday.
Accompanied by his parents, Kejriwal had on 5 March left for Bengaluru for treatment for chronic cough and high blood sugar.
It was widely expected that he will return on Sunday, but an official made it clear that he will come on Monday.
“Kejriwal will come on Monday afternoon," said the official.
In his absence, the Aam Aadmi Party, or AAP, has been rocked by a series of stings and had been attacked by both the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress.
Meanwhile, a senior doctor attending to Kejriwal said the Delhi chief minister’s ailments are a “classic case" of faulty and stressful lifestyle, but he has been “detoxified" to a large extent now.
“On the first day of his medical check-up, we observed that this time, along with his uncontrolled sugar, he has brought a nagging chronic cough, too, which was rather alarming," said Babina Nandakumar, chief medical officer at Jindal Nature Cure Institute on the city outskirts, where Kejriwal is admitted.
She said while traditional naturopathic treatments comprising hydrotherapy, massages, packs and mud therapy have been initiated with great effect, in combination with yoga and diet therapy, “we had to address his chronic cough rather differently".
“Our observation has found it to be a classic case of faulty and stressful lifestyle that included a high consumption of aerated drinks, irregular eating habits, a high level of pollution leading to the accumulation of toxins in his body, which required immediate attention, by a competent naturopathy regimen," she said in a statement.
Giving details of the treatment, Nandakumar said “a whole lot of detoxifying treatments were introduced from naturopathy, yoga therapy, diet, and their immediate effects were clearly evident."
She said “He is to a large extent detoxified now and his entire system is rejuvenated. His current sugar level is, fasting at 90mg/dI and post prandial at 130mg/dI and his medication has been reduced to only 30% from his medication level at the time of his admission."
