The high pollution level in Delhi is one of the reasons why Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was forced to go for a detoxification programme at the Jindal Institute of Naturecure in Bangalore last month, doctors who treated him told The Indian Express.
“The high level of pollution from vehicles, dust, smoke and factories, especially during the election campaign when he was travelling around the city, might have caused accumulation of toxins in his body and that required immediate attention,” chief medical officer at the institute Dr Babina Nandakumar said.

Kejriwal was at the institute from March 6-16. Though he was primarily diagnosed with high blood sugar level and a chronic cough, doctors also found that a stressful lifestyle and the living conditions in Delhi were responsible for his ill health.
Kejriwal underwent a gamut of treatment regimes, including naturopathy and yoga therapy, at the institute, which also made sure he got a healthy diet and clean air.
Doctors said Kejriwal’s blood sugar dropped from 300 mg/dl to a more stable 180 mg/dl after his treatment. His immunity levels improved and the cough reduced by 75 per cent, they added.
