Did you know that over 65% of deaths in India are caused because of lifestyle diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Diabetes? You will know why a proper diagnosis is so necessary as you read on.
Life in the city is everything but natural. Our bodies are born of this earth, but our lives are far from being earthy. We are no more natural. The rain can gives us a fever, wind can give us muscular spasms and the sun can give us migraine headaches. We are living stressful lives. We wake up to an alarm and not to dawn. Also , that, we eat so we won’t have to worry about skipping our meals. We work so that we can own what we have desired. Our ways of living cause physical, psychological, mental and emotional disorders and lead to several symptoms including chronic non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cervical spondylosis, diabetes and a host of other illnesses. And, to put the icing on the cake, medical diagnostics today is focused on symptomatic treatment and not in forewarning you of an impending illness. This is one of the reasons you know why a proper diagnosis is so necessary.
What are lifestyle diseases?
The way we live has transformed the way we live. The food we eat is produced elsewhere ant it is transported to a place from where we can procure it easily. For so much food to be produced, protected, packaged and delivered to locations all over the country, certain processes are required. These processes are all not so safe for us. Namely, the use of pesticides and preservatives.
Research shows the causes
Studies have shown that the use of pesticides and preservatives in cultivating food grains are some of the major causes of cancer and diabetes. Similarly air pollution in cities is the major cause of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a respiratory disorder. This also adversely affects a person’s mental health.
What causes diabetes?
Eating, so that one does not have to skip meals is one of the major causes of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes. According to Ayurveda, the sign of good health is measured by primarily two factors; a good appetite, meaning, hungry to eat and sound sleep. However, the city dweller doesn’t wait for hunger. They eat because it’s time. Overtime, eating becomes habitual. Habitual eating becomes the most familiar activity to indulge in when you are stressed, lonely, depressed or anxious.
When we are not calm, and need something to calm us down, we reach out to what is most familiar to us. That’s because, we cannot think too much when we are stressed. Mostly, it is food we reach out to. Stress eating and eating without hunger is one of the major causes of obesity and heart disease. This is another reason why a proper diagnosis is so necessary.
Why do we get Food Allergies?
Recently, food allergies are on the rise and that’s the next pandemic. Food grains is an industry which has seen most modifications. Genetic modification for better crop yield, crop cycle modifications to make yield possible round the year, pesticides to prevent crop infestation and destruction are causing irreversible damage to our body. Studies are revealing how crop modifications are adversely affecting our hormones resulting in food allergies, some of which can be life threatening. Did you know that food allergies can also trigger Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease?
Another problem is alienation from society. People living in the cities connect socially only on need basis and stay disconnected in their cocooned houses most of the time. Families are disconnected from even their immediate their neighbours. Self alienation creates a lack of social support system and results in psychological and mental disorders. Here is yet another reason why a proper diagnosis is so necessary.
With so much happening around us, there is little or no scope in modern medicine to diagnose and forewarn the occurrence of these and other conditions in ones life.
Isn\’t it necessary to diagnose and cure lifestyle diseases?
Ayurveda, a system of healthy living, is designed to observe, evaluate and forewarn the occurrence of physical, mental, emotional and psychological symptoms such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, diabetes and heart disease so that adequate steps can be taken to thwart them when they are yet to take root.
The only way to investigate, diagnose and evaluate a lifestyle that will take root and disrupt your normalcy is Nadi Pariksha. It is a science designed and perfected over thousands of years and it has stood the test of time. With Nadi Pariksha we can investigate, diagnose and evaluate the root cause of every physical, mental, emotional and psychological symptoms and forewarn you of impending lifestyle diseases that you might get as a result of your lifestyle.
