In India river buffaloes are enjoying their bath, donkeys are drinking, people are taking a bath, clothes are being washed – and the same water is perhaps being drunk by some. But the Westerner going to India cannot drink any available water because all water is polluted, has amoebas, and is not right for drinking. His immunity has been destroyed by too much protection.
Real medicine should give you immunity rather than take it away. It should make you stronger, able to fight any infection rather than make you weak so that you are vulnerable to all kinds of infections.
It has been observed that rich people fall sick more often than poor people. Poor people cannot afford it; rich people can. If the poor can manage one meal a day, that is very fortunate – but they are not sick. Rich people, even in the East, are more sick. In Ayurveda, a few diseases are defined as royal diseases. First you have to be able to afford them.
A famous psychologist, Delgado, had been working on animals. He was surprised to know that if rats are given one meal a day, they live twice as long; the life span of the rats who are given two meals a day is cut in half.
He himself was surprised: less food and longer life; more food and less life.
Now he has come up with the theory that one meal is perfectly enough; otherwise you are loading the system of digestion, and that causes the cut in your life span.
But what about people who are taking five meals a day…? Medicine will not allow them to die but will not allow them to live either. They will simply vegetate.
A totally new medical approach has to be evolved which takes note of acupuncture, Ayurveda, Greek medicine, and also which takes note of Delgado and his researches like his – which takes in to account the fact that man is not a machine. Man is a multidimensional spiritual being, and he should be treated as a being that is not predictable but with many dimensions.
Health should not be defined negatively: you don’t have any sickness so you are healthy. Health should find some positive definition. All other methods that have been used around the world are now functioning as if they are against each other.
They should be brought to a synthesis and that will give you a better view. The seven hundred bioelectric points discovered by the acupuncturists thousands of years ago have again been discovered by Kirlian photography. He has pictured them, and you can count them; there are exactly seven hundred. It is now well known, by brain surgeons particularly, that everything has its centre in the brain. If your hand becomes paralyzed, it is stupid to treat the hand. Some centre in your head controls this hand, and that centre has to be cured.
