NaturePath works on the wisdom and lifestyle of the Ancient Tamil Cittars to bring about human wellness for all human beings. This is an ancient practice to keep body and mind healthy as the Ancient Tamil Cittars valued eating plant-based as a Conscious food choice that had an incredible impact on the human body and mind not only valuing plant foods for curing physical health issues, but the use can be expanded for alleviating suffering on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
Foods in their whole, natural, living state do have an incredible impact on us. They are nutritious and healthy for the body.
Our conscious choice of whole, plant-based foods is very important to our wellbeing and wellness.
Plant-based nutrition in its natural form gives physical as well as mental health benefits as these foods are in their whole, natural, living state that has an incredible impact on us for they are nutritious and healthy for the body. We are not only our body. We do consist of energetic layers that become influenced by everything around us, especially by what we put into our bodies. Eventually, this food will become one with us on a cellular as well as an energetic level. Bio-photons (light energy) is an important factor when it comes to food quality. Bio-photons are the smallest physical units of light and their original source is sunlight. They are able to order, regulate, and further elevate the organism to a higher order, which is then manifested as well-being, sensing vitality and life force. The bio-electric energy of our cells depends on how many bio-photons our body is able to absorb externally (sunlight and plant foods). The more light a food stores, the more nutritious it is and the more life energy it provides us.
Cells act as resonators for sunlight. Electromagnetic wave patterns in the cells act as a guiding force for the physiological reactions in the cell. All living systems do emit bio-photons and the amount changes constantly because the field patterns are being influenced all the time. Further, it can be said that consciousness is a high order of coherence of field patterns in the body. If this order happens within our body, we remain healthy. If the field patterns are imbalanced, disease occurs. Science proves that foods do not only contain nutrients, phytochemicals, fiber, and enzymes, but also electrical energies. Our tissues or rather cells do also have an electrical potential, which directly represents the liveliness of our cells. By eating living foods (unprocessed plants), this electrical potential becomes enhanced, which results in a better capability or even power to destroy toxins and other unwanted substances as well as keep the DNA repair mechanisms up. Thus, these natural, whole plant foods rejuvenate the life force and health of an organism.
From a spiritual perspective, you do not only consume the material foods but at the same time you take in all the energetic information that everything on your plate carries within.
We have plant foods that are directly grown in or on mother earth, fully loaded with sunlight which provides the highest amount of life-force energy. We absorb more living energy, our digestive tract does not get as challenged as by eating meat, we’ll feel more vibrant, energized, clear, and peaceful.
The Ancient Tamil Cittars emphasised on the wellbeing of the body – good health! Cittar Tirumular says ”Udambar azhiyil uyirar azhivar…” which means maintaining a healthy body is essential as it holds a healthy mind that is required to attain salvation. To maintain one’s body health helps to retain youthfulness and attain spiritual perfection.“Kaaya Karpam” (rejuvenation and longevity) was practiced as a preventive measure against illness. Practicing Kaaya Karpam also provides acquired immunity (seyarkai vanmai) to our body. Kaaya Karpam acts in 2 ways i.e., prevention against disease and restoration of health during illness.
The rules practiced by the Ancient Tamil Cittars followed strictly, keep away death. These simple preventive principles practiced by them have an in-depth scientific value, though they were designed much before the advent of modern science. These rules have been followed as routine custom and culture through several generations – since 1000’s and 1000’s of years ago. The uniqueness of Cittar System is evident by its continuous service to humanity for more than 10,000 years in combating diseases and also in maintaining its physical, mental, and moral health.
Most of us have lost our spiritual connection to food. It has been reduced to operate as fuel and to provide us nutritional value. However, the human body is not a machine. Many of the food-related issues can be traced back to a lack of awareness between body and spirit. Our food contributes to how we think, how we feel and how much we’re connected to our spiritual body; how conscious we are. You’re eating habits do have the potential to support your personal transformation. It will contribute to a collective transformation in you – the whole of you!
Conscious mental drive basically preserves the soul through conserving the body, the idea is referred by Cittar Tirumular in his writings compiled as the ‘Tirumantiram.’ The Cittar's concept of healthy longevity is attributed to human comprehension, manifested by a divine transformation or attainment. The principles of positive health relate to the physical, mental, social, and spiritual wellbeing of a human being. The Cittar system is a perfect way of life to relish. Awareness about the usage of Cittar knowledge, experience of plant-based nutrition has increased. Highlighting the lifelong and wisdom of longevity science that the Cittars were masters off have been designed to promote healthy longevity by checking cellular degenerative senility. Even today we can observe age-related changes such as bone density, fragility, greying of hair begins in the middle age rapidly in many urbanized regions. On the other hand, a sizable number of older people in the Tamil rural areas are still able to engage in work besides handling their household activities just as well as they could in their middle age is a very good example even today.
HOW A PLANT-BASED DIET CAN BOOST YOUR HEALTH
One of the most powerful steps you can take to improve your health, boost energy levels, and prevent chronic diseases is to move to a plant-based diet.
Science today shows changing your nutrition is a powerful way to live longer, help the environment, and reduce your risk of getting sick.
Making the switch
Going plant-forward is easier than ever these days. Start by searching out some enticing vegetarian recipes that are easy to prepare. Choose ingredients and flavors you know your family will enjoy. Experiment with a meatless meal once a week, then add more days as you get used to it.
Odds are good that you will get used to it!
Just make sure you’re not replacing meat with a bunch of highly processed meat substitutes or “vegan junk food.” You know, the French fry diet! The key is adding high-quality, nutrient-dense plant based foods (such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and nuts) was associated with a lower risk of death from cardiovascular diseases than eating primarily lower-quality plant foods (such as fruit juices, refined grains, potatoes and sweets). The researchers concluded that even if you’ve eaten a poor diet for half your life, adding more healthy plant foods as an adult can help reduce your risk.
