Become aware of your body…the key to healthy living…

If you don’t take care of your body each day and continually run around on fumes, then you won’t have a sound structure to support a healthy and fit lifestyle. Taking care of your body begins with being aware of the physical stress you put on yourself and realizing the importance of addressing this stress prior to feeling aches and pains. ⠀

When you aren’t in tune with your body, mental and physical ailments can create a domino effect that if overlooked for too long will eventually lead to more serious conditions. Initially, the most common signs that it’s time to tune up your body include getting sick often, feeling unbalanced or uncoordinated, muscle soreness, irritability aches in your neck, shoulders and upper back.⠀

Many people aren’t aware that their bodies aren’t functioning properly or being taken care of well until they start seeing these type of signs. Addressing your ailments maintains your overall health and wellness.⠀

HEALTH – 2 major definitions

Dr JV Hebbar⠀ – AYURVEDIC – definition of Health – Health is a state where in the Tridosha (Vata, Pitta & Kapha) digestive fire, all body tissues & components, all physiological processes are in perfect unison and the soul, the sense organs & mind are in a state of total satisfaction & content.⠀

WHO – World Health Organisation – “Health is a state of complete physical, mental & social well-being and not merely the absence of disease & infirmity.”⠀


WHO – covers three major aspects – physical, mental and social well being. The social well being refers to how a person interacts positively with the people around him.⠀

AYURVEDIC – definition of Health -⠀Tridosha refers to the physical well being.⠀

*⠀Digestive Fire – Ayurveda believes that the imbalance of digestive fire (Agni) is the root cause of most diseases. Ayurvedic experts analyse Agni not only as digestive fire, but energy behind all the metabolic processes in the body. This also refers to physical well-being.⠀
