How Do Indian People Stay Healthy?

A Healthy Diet For A Healthy Mind And Body

Since ancient times, India’s philosophy of nature has concerned itself with the big picture and commonality in regards to space and natural phenomena. It has heavily influenced Ayurveda’s belief that the life is composed of “space”, which is in turn born of body, sensation, organs, mind, and the balance between them, and that humans too are a part of nature in themselves.

The most important part of many Indian people’s lives is mealtime. A popular Indian proverb says that “Illness is cured in the kitchen”, which should give you an idea of how much they value a balanced diet (and why they use so many spices and herbs in their cooking). India’s best-known, dish, curry, is designed to properly balance what India believes to be the six essential flavors (salty, sweet, bitter, spicy, sour, and richness) which leads directly to healthy living. India also has many other proverbs about herbs, a sign of how many different varieties of plants grow there.

This is how Ayurveda adopted Indian beliefs and came to consider all plants to be herbs and all medicine made from herbs to be equivalent to food. Because herbs have no side effects, not only can they help restore the body’s balance even after it’s been damaged by an unhealthy diet, stress, and other environmental factors, they can help already healthy people to feel even better than most other people their age.

Indian people’s very way of life is based on Ayurvedic principles. Indeed, it is little exaggeration to say they are one and the same. And when one sees how well it works for Indian people, it’s easy to see how the teachings of Ayurveda can help all of us to lead healthier, happier lives.
