  • Strengthen Natural Immunity

    "Among human beings,
    some are subject to diseases, and others are immune. Such a state of resistance is due to
    the individual constitution of the tissues and the humors, which oppose the penetration of pathogenic agents or destroy them when they have invaded our body. This is natural
    immunity. This form of immunity may preserve certain individuals from almost any
    disease. It is one of the most precious qualities for which man could wish. We are still
    ignorant of its nature. It appears to depend on some properties of ancestral origin, as well
    as on others acquired in the course of development. Certain families are observed to be
    susceptible to tuberculosis, appendicitis, cancer, or mental disorders. Others resist all
    diseases except the degenerative ones occurring during old age. But natural immunity does not exclusively derive from our ancestral constitution. It may come also from the mode of life and alimentation, as Reid Hunt showed long ago. Some diets were found to
    increase the susceptibility of mice to experimental typhoid fever. The frequency of
    pneumonia may also be modified by food. The mice belonging to one of the strains kept in the mousery of the Rockefeller Institute died of pneumonia in the proportion of fifty-two per cent while subjected to the standard diet. Several groups of these animals were
    given different diets. The mortality from pneumonia fell to thirty-two per cent, fourteen per cent, and even zero, according to the food. We should ascertain whether natural
    resistance to infections could be conferred on man by definite conditions of life.
    Injections of specific vaccine or serum for each disease, repeated medical examinations
    of the whole population, construction of gigantic hospitals, are expensive and not very
    effective means of preventing diseases and of developing a nation's health. Good health
    should be natural. Such innate resistance gives the individual a strength, a boldness,
    which he does not possess when his survival depends on physicians.
    In addition to an inherent resistance to maladies, there is also an acquired resistance.
    The latter may be spontaneous or artificial. The organism is known to adapt itself to
    bacteria and viruses by the production of substances capable of directly or indirectly
    destroying the invaders. Thus, diphtheria, typhoid fever, smallpox, measles, etc., render
    their victims immune to a second attack of the disease, at least for some time."

    That's what the modern research also confirms. We must increase our natural resistance in the body, by good food, breathing and physical exercise.
    Lead a contended happy life. Rushing towards making money only increases tension and strain resulting in disease and despair.

    Let's not waste the opportunity.

      Human life is rare gift of nature.
      Sixth sense of "dharma" is provided to human life only. Otherwise we are no different from other living beings.

      आहार-निद्रा-भय-मैथुनं च समानमेतत्पशुभिर्नराणाम् । धर्मो हि तेषामधिको विशेषो धर्मेण हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥
      Food, sleep, fear and mating, these acts of humans are similar to animals' | Of them (humans), dharma (right conduct) is the only special...
