Pranayama Benefits

Pranayama benefits are numerous and tremendous. When appropriately practiced it has a number of health benefits. But you have to practice it religiously. Like you brush your teeth it should be followed. There must be no break.
Hindu philosophy is mainly based on karma. So we pray to nature, sun as a god, performing cow’s pooja and Go Dhana [donating cows to eligible person], Thulasi (basil) plant and Aswath (banyan trees) are holy and auspicious. By praying sincerely we can get rid of sins. Also by doing pranayama we can get rid of our sins. Interesting is it? Yes!!! It purifies our Nadis. In a human being, there are 76,000 nadis. The right side has 36,000 nadis and the Left side has 36,000 nadis. While we do pranayama, our nadis get purified, and the past misdeeds are removed by the grace of Eashwar.

Also, it was said that Kowsalya Lord Rama’s Mother performed pranayama. Even in the epics, we have proof of doing pranayama. To inhale the air, first, take a deep breath as you smell a flower. Hold the breath for 5 counts and then exhale.

  5. Healthy eating – Happy eating

It’s great that you recognize the importance of a balanced diet and the role of various nutrients in maintaining good health. However, it’s important to note that the concept of a balanced diet doesn’t necessarily mean consuming equal proportions of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. The specific proportions of these macronutrients can vary depending on individual needs, goals, and dietary guidelines. It’s generally recommended to consume a variety of foods from different food groups to ensure an adequate intake of essential nutrients.

Regarding fiber, it is indeed an important component of a healthy diet. It helps regulate digestion, promotes satiety, and supports overall gut health. Including fiber-rich foods such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes can be beneficial.

While it’s true that preparing meals at home can offer control over the ingredients and cooking methods, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all outside food should be avoided. It’s about making informed choices and being mindful of the ingredients and cooking techniques used. In the context of COVID-19, following local health guidelines and prioritizing hygiene in food preparation is crucial.

Food allergies are a real concern for some individuals, and it’s important for them to identify and avoid the foods that trigger their allergic reactions. However, for those without allergies, it’s generally recommended to consume a diverse range of foods to ensure a broad spectrum of nutrients. It’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian for personalized dietary advice based on your specific needs and health conditions.

Lastly, moderation and balance are key when it comes to enjoying your favorite foods, including those that may be higher in calories or less nutritious. By practicing portion control, spacing out indulgences, and balancing them with nutrient-dense options, you can still enjoy your favorite foods while maintaining a healthy eating pattern.

Remember, healthy eating is a lifelong journey, and it’s important to find an approach that works best for you while considering your individual needs, preferences, and cultural traditions.
