Head-over-Bites Post:2 - Fasting is the Best Medicine

"Doctors won’t make you healthy. Nutritionists won’t make you slim. Teachers won’t make you smart. Gurus won’t make you calm. Mentors won’t make you rich. Trainers won’t make you fit. Ultimately, you have to take responsibility." With this quote. I want to highlight the Ayurveda secret of being healthy by the auto-cleaning mechanism of our body by Fasting is the best medicine, "लंघनं परम् औषधं" as per our classics. It explains how one can keep the jathargni or digestive fire strong and at the same time avoid diseases. If you already have some health issues, then also it is very beneficial. Fasting is recommended as per seasonal variations. There are 3 types of fasting in Ayurveda classics; 1. Physical fasting 2. Mental fasting 3. Verbal fasting Physical fasting is simple as in this we have the choice of taking a very light meal but it is important to understand that we don't eat all the things whatever we eat should be of good quality and nutritious. In nutshell, food should be Sattvic. So, you can opt for a little number of fruits or a few fruits with herbal detox water or take moong dal khichadi. You can also try intermittent fasting. Skip dinner at night or if you choose you may skip breakfast. Try to keep a gap of 14-15 hrs between the meals. Mental fasting is also very important. Understanding this, every day we are eating nit just through our mouth but also through eyes and ears. We hear things, we see, we think about or read some- All these might bring negative thoughts. Try to eliminate negativity in aloof its form and try to stay calm for a few moments or be Sattvic. Sattvic here means anything that relaxes your mind. Clean, pure, vegetarian food, soothing music, positive stories, etc. Rajas guns and Tamas guns agitate our minds, creates negativity, and leads to problems. Verbal Fasting refers to control of speech or do some breathing exercises like Pranayam, meditation. That is how we can do these three types of fasting and treat our health problems from their root cause. So, FASTING IS THE BEST MEDICINE" "लंघनं परम् औषधं"
