I am thinking why we call our age as ‘the age of life’? How many of us are truly living? Because as Buddha says ‘Without health, life is not life, it is only languor and suffering – an image of death.’ Of course, technology has made us realise most of our hopes. We have all the things required for our well-being, but with our utter negligence towards basic hygiene, we have no sense of well-being. Yes, we have wired technology, wireless technology. But amidst all this, our health is in haywire. So, we must rewire our lifestyles.
We fall ill because we leading lives against nature. Even if our individual organs work well, it is the proper integration of the individual functions they perform that maintains proper health. Nature has always been the best healer. It is so gentle and yet very effective. It teaches us about ourselves, our powers, our immune systems. Natural healing deals with the cause of our maladies and not just the effects. It believes in the mantra – prevention is better than cure. It involves simple things – an agile lifestyle, fresh home food, healthy living habits, undisturbed rest. These things build up our ability to heal and maintain our health. This is a holistic approach, protecting us from the disorders of lifestyle, and purifying us.
