Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will leave for Bengaluru for naturopathy treatment for high blood sugar on Tuesday. Sources said on Sunday that he will be there for two weeks.

“His blood sugar levels have shot up and doctors have advised him to take insulin thrice a day. His return will depend on the improvement of his health,” said a Delhi government official.

Kejriwal had campaigned extensively in Punjab and Goa which went to the polls on Saturday. He had returned from Punjab after the polling.

In January last year, Kejriwal had undergone 12 days of naturopathy treatment at the same institute for chronic cough and diabetes. The Jindal Naturecure Institute is a popular destination in the outskirts of Bengaluru for naturopathy.

According to experts, naturopathy is one of the AYUSH (Ayurveda Yoga and Naturopathy Unani Siddha Homeopathy) systems of healing that revolves around five basic elements or panch mahabhut— earth, water, sun, air and ether.

The chief minister had also undergone a throat surgery at Narayana Hospital in Bengaluru in September last year.
