    Hello again

    Health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being, not just an absence of diseases.

    A healthy mind and a healthy body are great assets for the development of a healthy life.

    Good health means perfect functioning of body and mind.

    Body-mind relationship shows a wide variation from person to person. There are people with a strong physical constitution that their minds have little or no influence on their bodies. On the other hand there are people whose bodies are easily influenced by stress and anxiety.

    Mind plays a great role in every humans health. There is always a connecting link between the mind and the body.

    Mental stress is the root cause of most of the common illness such as hypertension , ulcers, nervous disorders etc.

    In stressful situations nervous system activates the pituitary to secrete the 'stress hormone', which in tern stimulates the secretion of several hormones and steroids. Finally more sugar is released into the blood, shoots up the blood pressure. In some cases it goes beyond tolerance level resulting in illness.

    Such is the relationship between the mind and the body. In our day to day life we pay less attention to this basic concept.

    If negative emotions could cause illness, positive emotions should cause wellness.

    Every human being should feel the responsibility for one's own health. Prevention is always better then cure should be the policy.

    Shed the wrong notion that restoring health and curing illness are solely the responsibility of the doctors.

    Proper sleep, good diet, regular exercise improves the blood circulation, increases the metabolism and controls degeneration of tissues and neurological disorders caused by ageing.

    Brisk walking, meditation keeps the mind cool.

    Yoga does wonders to the human body. Yoga exercises relieves the muscles and tendons of the specific focal points.

    Regulated breathing in yoga helps the metabolism and relaxes the person to a great extent.

    Harmony between the mind and the body is achieved by cultivating conscious, self-directed and disciplined way of life.

    By extending our consciousness into the interior parts of the body we become closer to our inner self and bring about the integration of personality.

    The bottom line is realize the role played by the mind in health, become aware of the inner self and be responsible for one's own health.

    It is never too late to regain your health.

    Go ahead have a healthy life.
