Why do certain foods harm some people and help others?
Why do the results of a weight loss program vary from individual to individual?
And why do some people fall sick more often than others?
The science of Ayurveda holds answers to these questions and many more. Its scriptures took a holistic approach to health by combining our lifestyle with our natural tendencies (which vary from one person to another).
This groundbreaking new work from Om Swami combines the yogic view of food as sattvic, rajasic and tamasic with the Ayurvedic perspective, and further relates it to the modern view of food as acidic and alkaline. This is also the first time Ayurvedic prakriti (vata, pitta and kapha) has been discussed in the context of yogic prakriti (sattvic, rajasic and tamasic) in a truly cohesive fashion.
The Wellness Sense is a simple, step-by-step handbook on how to take better care of yourself. Accessibly written, deeply researched and distilled from Om Swami’s own livid experience, The Wellness Sense puts your health and happiness in your hands.
Let me give you the golden principle, the primordial mantra to stay in the finest of your physical, mental and emotional health. If you adopt what I am going to tell you, you will become a powerful agent, a catalyst in your own transformation. At the root of most ailments, diseases and disorder is clutter. Clutter could exist in your physical, mental or emotional world. Generally, clutter in any one world is a strong indication that it exists in the other two too.
Most people carry a clutter of thoughts, often painful thoughts of the past. They walk around in a mess of negative emotions carrying a bag of unfulfilled desires. Such thoughts and emotions continue to pile up, making us feel heavier and heavier until one day when we can take it no more and break down. This point of break-down starts to manifest in the form of ailments in our three bodies long before it appears in the tests and medical imaging. How do we clean the clutter in the physical world? We organize the necessary stuff and discard the useless. This leads me to the golden mantra — Simplify Your Life. This is truly the yogic sense, the Wellness Sense.
