Diet is one part of the whole picture in the gradual emergence of a new human
consciousness which is inclusive, universal, just, and rational. There are many components that interact together to ensure good health. Doctors opine that 75% of all modern ailments are psycho-somatic, that is they have their origins in the mind. Our modern illnesses of stress related disorders, nervous breakdowns and borderline personality disorders are just some of the indicators that our mind plays a key role in helping us to attain and maintain good health. Humans are mind-preponderant beings since we are dominated more by our mental feelings than by our instinctual urges.
This presentation will extoll the role of food in affecting our mental state primarily and our physical state secondarily. Evidence continues to mount about how different foods affect our state of mind thereby affecting our overall well-being one way or the other. Other factors apart from food affect our health which we define here as a harmonious balance between our physical, mental and spiritual selves. Regular physical exercise, fresh air, use of water, regular psycho-spiritual exercise, pleasant social relationships, and avoidance of bad habits, fasting and observance of universal laws of life are some of the other elements which combine together to ensure a long, happy and healthy life.
