Tune yourself physically, mentally ami emotionally to nature, that is Hie best way to keep away wMi negativities and gain optimum health, says Yogi Ashwini
Human beings are a part of nature; our physical bodies are as much a part of nature as anything else. Tuning yourself, physically, mentally and emotionally to nature is the only path to wellness and optimum health. No two bodies am the same and there is always a dominance of one or two doshas. The first step is to recognise this inherent nature of our bodies, identify form of accumulation and negate the causes. Starving yourself is absolutely redundant, just as undue attachment to objects and fellow beings is also not natural and must be done away with. The key is taking in only what is required whether its material things or emotions. At the emotional level, letting go of your attachments and taking more and more responsibility, not just of your immediate family and friends but of society and humankind results in sweeping away negative thoughts and purifying the being. Herbs have maximum effect on people who follow this model.
In a kapha dominant person, when negative and selfish thoughts start accumulating the result is excess fat. Kapha is heavy in nature, the heavier the thoughts one collects, the heavier one becomes. Then slowly this imbalance starts manifesting as disease. No matter how hard you try to achieve physical change by applying physical means, the effort will be futile. You must understand that it is something else which controls the physical; you have to reach there to be capable of bringing a change.
Vata dominant people get affected by imbalances like arthritis, asthma, indigestion and hypertension affecting the heart. All these are effects of obesity of thoughts, actions, and the body. Pitta dominant people encounter stomach ulcers, hyperacidity, gastritis etcHerbs, asanas or exercises are not so effective for these people and they have the tendency to get exposed to life threatening diseases. All three types of people need to bring themselves to a balanced state.
