“Health is not just an absence of disease. The word health comes from the word ‘whole.’ When an individual human being feels complete physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, that is when health is.” – Sadhguru
With the advent of modern technology, a certain level of comfort and convenience has come into people’s lives that those living hundred years ago could only dream of. Despite that, unfortunately the mechanics of health has eluded us. While many countries measure their GDP in trillions of dollars today, unfortunately the same can be said about their national health care bills.
Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, prominent cardiac surgeon and founder of the Narayana Hrudayalaya hospitals, probes Sadhguru on the issue of human health. Far from being a dry diagnosis of health care, the dialogue delves into the realms of the mystical with questions on destiny and the role of a doctor, as well as its connection to congenital illnesses. Other questions deal with the power of human contact, the necessity of invasive medical interventions and unlocking the potential of the mind.
In Mechanics of Health, Sadhguru looks at the fundamentals for creating health in the body, not just as a temporary relief from illnesses but as a natural state of being.
