Three essential components of Total Health :
The first western textbook of medicine written in 1733 in Vienna advised the same method even as far back as the 18th century that is true and is applicable even today, which is :
- Change of mode of living – Change of mode of living alone should bring about a healthy society and not medicines, technology, and hospitals. It is fact of life that change of life style/food habits affect our lives so positively that nothing else can.
- Tranquility of mind – Tranquility of mind filled with universal compassion is a good vaccine against major killer diseases. Try to take the calm approach to the problems of life and not worry and fret over day to day problems that come along
- Selective usage of drugs – rarely ever, if ever. Chemical reductionist drugs should be used very sparingly, if ever. Most of the disease specially chronic diseases like Diabetes, Blood Pressure problems, Heart disease, Thyroid problems etc are lifestyle diseases and can be cured using dietary changes.
