Your Diet has the Single Biggest
Influence on Your Health !!!
How can our diet have such a big impact on our health?
Picture your body as a car, that has slowly evolved over time.... and you're driving this 2-million year old car. An all-natural, organic, living, breathing car. For 2 million years, this car has been using fuel such as:
Water, Seeds, Nuts, Grasses, Herbs, Roots, Fruits- like apples, papaya, pears, pomegranate, melons, Dates, plums, peaches, mangoes etc. Vegetables growing on twines like bitter gourd, pumpkin, Indian round gourd (Tinda), turnips, Cereals and Milk.
That's the fuel it is used to. More importantly, that's the kind of diet it was built on. These are the raw materials it was made of.
Then, suddenly, after 2,000,000 years… that car switches over to – for the last 100 years – a new, modern mixture of with:
Sugar, Sweets, Biscuits, Pastries, Patties, Burgers, Pizzas, Noodles, Bread, Chocolate, Cola and soft-drinks, Fats & oils, Cigarettes and alcohol, Pharmaceutical drugs (Allopathic medicines), Chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives (loads of them).
What do you think would happen to this 'vehicle'? It breaks down!
Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of diet and life style in preventing the diseases rather than treating merely the symptoms.
"If diet is right then there is no need of medicines and if diet is wrong then there is no use of medicine"
So if you want to live healthy – turn to food that is good for your health
