Disease is the disappearance of natural ease.
Yoga philosophy aims at the prevention of the loss of our ease and peace. Most of the modern problems are due to wrong habits like — smoking, drinking alcohol, eating the wrong foods, over eating and stress.
Yoga aims at putting us back into natural living. Yoga follows certain path to attain this.
First of this is Asanas — physical postures. Asanas give mild pressures to certain body parts, squeezes out the toxins and provides fresh blood circulation to those areas.
The second is to educate people about how to breathe better. This is Pranayama. It is proved experimentally that we normally take only about 500 mls ( mls–millilitres ) instead of 3700 mls which our normal lung capacity. With proper practice of pranayama we can increase our lung capacity slowly.
Pranayama allows the entire body to get oxygenated and burns out toxins from cells. By breathing alone, we can prevent and cure many ailments.
The best way of course is not to put any toxins in our system. Our food should contain clean nutrition, free from any toxins & easily digestible.
The same holds good for mind. The mind is constantly fed upon our thoughts. Thought is the food for the mind. Thoughts affect both mind and body. Our thoughts also need to be nutritious. Positive & constructive.
Meditation is recommended in Yoga. First you need to know your present thoughts. Then you need to fill the mind with proper thoughts & lead a dedicated, selfless life.
Do everything for the joy of doing it. That is yoga. This is the yoga way to clean the body and mind so you can truly enjoy the life. You are relaxed and in good health always.
