….AND BACK TO BASICS
All living and non-living objects follow laws of nature. Existence or survival depends on learning to live in alignment with nature. Somewhere down the evolution period in an attempt to understand nature and to conquer it, man developed an attitude to drift away from its mesmerizing effects.
Rapid technological progress has side-tracked our minds from noticing simple and natural phenomena like animals, insects, birds, trees, flowers and weather changes.We tend to neglect the fact that our body undoubtedly reacts to the ever changing moods of nature and thus it suffers.
Ayurveda aligns you back to the basic rhythms of nature by guiding your lifestyle and dietary changes as per the requirements of daytime, season and environmental changes. This has a great role in increasing the immunity of the body.
Just as global warming is a gradual phenomenon which is due to negligence/ misuse/ overuse/ mishandling of natural resources and nature itself, similarly, diseases are gradual ‘dis’-‘ease’ due to negligence/ misuse/ overuse/ mishandling of your body and your lifestyle.
So whenever you are confused about your health, Ayurveda is there to guide you.
