Health Hazards

Let us try to analyse how, what and why makes one a victim of health (physical and mental) disorders. One needs to bear in mind always, that it is easy to get diseased but very tough to maintain good health. A lot of questions are constantly raised with regard to health and it is our responsibility to provide understandable and practical solutions for these.

Do people understand that the root cause of any disease is indigestion and acidity?

It is an established fact that 95% of the Health disorders, that are degenerative in nature, are caused because of bad colon function (functioning of the large intestine). If this situation is not rectified on a daily basis, it will change the chemistry of the body.

What is the Chemistry of the body?

Chemical reactions do take place in our body. Our whole body functioning is related to chemical reactions that keep happening throughout our life. During digestion, the food is broken down into smaller molecules. The saliva released in our mouth by the salivary glands, are the digestive enzymes which help in the breakdown of food. Digestion continues in the stomach with acids released there and further in the small intestines with the alkaline digestive enzymes.

A well known reaction that takes place in our body, after a workout, is the change in the blood chemistry. While exercising, muscles use oxygen contained in the haemoglobin to convert the glucose in the bloodstream, into usable energy.

Chemical build up can result in potential damage to our nervous system. Chemical balance and functioning of nerve cells could be disrupted by some toxins without actually destroying their architecture. It is therefore possible for a person to develop different neurotoxic illnesses like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatic Arthritis etc.

What kind of food should be consumed and why?

Our food intake should comprise of 80% alkaline food and 20% acidic food. It is also essential that sufficient water is consumed every day (about 2.5 to 3 ltrs.). We tend to drink water only when we feel thirsty. When we are thirsty, it is an indication of a crisis of water shortage at the cell level. It is always therefore better to keep consuming water. We do have to always remember, that dieting is just not about what one eats, but it’s all about what your body actually needs.

What is the relevance of thinking about our health at the cell level?

We address the disease at the "cause" level by setting the ambiance at the cellular level. To achieve this correction, we have to use the selected module plus MDT. This will help the organs to connect with each other and finally the communication of the cells will be better for attaining the total comfort or wellness.

Our body comprises of Trillions of cells (some say 75 Trillions and few others say 100 Trillions – Hard to count and difficult to take a census about the same). We are aware that all living beings, large or small, plant or animal, are made up of cells. However, it is important to note that water makes up about two thirds of the weight of cells. Each of the cells in our body requires the right food (nutrients of value and not the junk), good quality and quantity of water & oxygen, a right process of elimination of waste and also good exposure to Sunlight. Imbalance in providing all the above 5 aspects – Nutrients, Oxygen, Water, Waste Removal & Sunlight can result in weakening the cells and also the early death of the cells. When a cell becomes damaged or infected, it would self-destruct by a process called apoptosis. Apoptosis is a biochemical event leading to characteristic cell changes and death of the cells. Contrarily, a cell’s inability to undergo apoptosis can result in the development of cancer.

Cells within the human body have varying life spans based on the type and function of the cell. They could live anywhere from a few days to a year. Few of the cells of the digestive tract would live for only a few days, while some immune system cells could live for up to six weeks. Pancreatic cells live the longest and live for about one year.

Tissues are formed by the groups of cells comprising of both a shared structure and function. Different types and several tissues arranged together to form organs. Groups of organs can in turn form organ systems that make up the human body.

How can I maintain good health?

Regular exercise and the right diet help keep the body in its optimum condition of health. A body that is inactive, experiences a crisis over a period of time. Remember, our body is designed for hunting with an excellent tolerance level.

It is important to understand that there is a Biological Clock in our body. Each of the 12 organs in our body have got different timings for their peak functioning. This is based on the Solar movement. It should be noted that after sunset the body's metabolic activities slowdown. It is at this time that the body switches to the mode of healing /repairing.

The body should be provided with the needed rest. One has to set a proper time for sleeping, and provide the body, a minimum of 6 hours and a maximum of 8 hours of sound sleep.

When one violates the above aspects consistently, the body's chemical, physical, mental and biological abilities change, resulting in various symptoms of distress at various sites of the body.

Following are the important aspects that will help maintain good health:

  • Possess right knowledge about the diet
  • Understand the importance of taking proper food at proper times
  • Avoid eating junk food
  • Drink water aplenty (2.5 to 3 ltrs of water daily)
  • Adopt a proper sleeping pattern
  • Exercise regularly
  • Walk briskly for 4 to 5 kms in a day
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle

What are the kinds of problems that can generally afflict us due to degeneration and erratic lifestyle?

Lifestyle diseases are rampant in countries becoming more industrialized. Lifestyle diseases include Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis, Atherosclerosis, Asthma, all kinds of cancer, chronic liver disease or Cirrhosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Blood pressure, Heart disease, Metabolic syndrome, Kidney failure, Osteoporosis, Stroke, Depression, Chronic Fatigue syndrome, Infertility related issues, Insomnia, Skin diseases and Obesity.

There can be a distinction between diseases of longevity and diseases of civilization. It is alarming to note that certain diseases, such as Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart problems, Dental caries, Allergy or Asthma are appearing at greater rates, in younger population.

Diet and lifestyle are two major factors thought to influence susceptibility to many diseases. Drug abuse, tobacco smoking, and alcohol drinking, as well as lack of exercise are also speeding up the risk of developing certain diseases, especially in the later state of life.
