Let sanity enter the domain of health
We’ve all been struck with health problems, but what do we do with it? How do we handle it? What do we really want? What is health? Most of us lose our clear understanding, outlook, approach or common sense in how to handle health. There is a confusion about the basic perspective of good health.
The emergence of urbanization brought about progressive change in the lifestyle of mankind. The rapid development demanded quick-fix solutions for the new-found emergencies of the urban world. This led to the evolution and proliferation of crisis medicine in the form of allopathic system of medicine. This was the time when crisis lifestyle started taking solace in crisis medicine, and it continues to do so. But what about those aspects of health that do not require emergency treatments? There is more to life and more to health than crisis lifestyle and crisis medicine. Crisis gives way to dismay and confusion. Laboratory tests, solely, cannot be made to dictate or decide for a good or bad health.
Sanity, somewhere, needs to take over the domain of health
We are so enslaved in the existing model of healthcare that it becomes a bit inconvenient for us to come out of it. We are in this comfort zone of our enslavement. But to evolve, we need to leave this slavery, we need to leave our comfort zones and venture into a new realm of health. My book ‘Reloading Health by Decoding Ayurveda’ is a step towards bringing about this sanity. This book takes us to an obscure door in the existing wall of health. We just need to enter it to be welcomed across to the other side. Ayurveda means ‘The Science of Life’; so decoding Ayurveda means decoding the science of living a healthy, happy and prosperous life. There is a need to translate this tradition of Ayurveda in day-to-day life. For this it becomes essential to reload health through the lens of Ayurveda. Short stories intermixed with ancient concepts makes this book an interesting read, because stories tend to remain in our mind for longer period than the concepts.
Get together any day in a week, interact, meditate, share coffee and read aloud a few pages from this book at each meeting. Let the understanding of Ayurveda pour into mind. Let this knowledge take its own course to be digested gradually, so that whatever we learn becomes rooted. We wish to see this simple book change the face of our rationale, our reasonings, our justifications and our understanding of health.
May sanity delve forever in the domain of health.
May this ‘Science of Life’ become the way of life.
