I lost a dear aunt recently, and I thought its important for me to share the importance of mental, physical, and spiritual health.


Why Health Is Wealth?

It's crucial to prioritize three aspects of health, especially as you grow your business. Merely earning money without maintaining good health is counterproductive. I'm referring to mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. These three dimensions are essential for making a meaningful impact while expanding your business. I'll share my personal approach to staying healthy during business growth, including how I handle health issues. Please note that I'm not a health expert, doctor, or nutritionist, but I'll share what has worked for me based on my body type. You should gather ideas, understand your body, and optimize your health practices accordingly.

Now, let's break down what I do into three parts: mental health, physical health, and spiritual health. Your body is like a temple, and neglecting it can hinder your ability to make a positive impact. Many business owners, entrepreneurs, coaches, and trainers harm themselves, affecting their personal and professional lives. First, let's discuss the importance of mental health.

Mental health is often underestimated, but it's crucial. I personally experienced a panic attack in 2015 due to sleep issues, anxieties, and fears. This affected my entire well-being, and I had to reset my body through pancha karma to regain mental balance. Inputs into your system, such as information and food, significantly impact mental health. Watching negative news and consuming food prepared by anxious individuals can affect you. Just as water stores information, the energy of those cooking your food transfers to it.

Additionally, your environment at home influences mental health. Being mindful of basic principles like vastu can contribute to a positive mental atmosphere. While I won't delve too deeply into vastu, awareness of its basic principles, such as the southwest positioning of your master bedroom, can enhance your mental well-being. Taking care of your mental health is a fundamental step toward overall well-being and business success.

Yeah, the northeast needs to be heavier than the southwest. The northeast should feel like water and air, while the southeast is more like the fire element in the kitchen. Before moving into my current house, I ensured the basic principles were in place. Your physical space influences your thoughts, just like food does. Energies out of place at home can lead to complications, affecting physical, mental, and spiritual health.

I've observed this in my life. My grandfather's 40-room home in Bangalore flourished for 40 years based on proper principles. However, when we made structural changes and shifted the master bedroom to a different zone, issues arose. Back then, lack of awareness led to the problem. This experience sparked my interest in the science of spaces and zones.

Understanding the principles of nature is crucial. You don't need to delve too deep into details like the color of your desk bottle. Following basic principles can significantly impact your thinking. Your circle of friends is another factor affecting mental health. Ensure they align with your visions and goals or consider changing your circle.

Maintaining mental health involves building communities and receiving appreciation. I love the gratitude from those paying for my services. Having clarity in your purpose is crucial. For me, it's redefining education and contributing to a new world leadership. Spiritual purpose is also vital.

Working in cycles, taking breaks, and daily learning are keys to mental health. Creating content, building communities, and helping others add value in various ways contribute positively. Now, moving to physical health, like in religion, there are multiple paths. I personally avoid milk products as part of my health routine.

I consume minimal sugars and salt, avoiding white poisons as much as possible. Eating out is limited to one or two days a month, and when I do, it's not oily or greasy. In our family, we strictly follow South Indian cuisine, excluding onion and garlic, sticking to traditional recipes. I believe in embracing the culinary heritage of the family you're born into.

Coming from a South Indian Tambram background, our cuisine primarily consists of Rasam, Sambhar, and other South Indian dishes. Since adopting a spiritual lifestyle, we've eliminated onion and garlic due to their negative pranic value. Even while traveling, we opt for Jain food.

We prioritize structured water at home, utilizing copper plates to enhance its quality. I begin my day with a Herbalife shake, made with almond milk, as a meal replacement. A light dinner consists of easily digestible items like idli. Occasionally, I undergo an annual Pancha Karma treatment for detoxification, balancing the body's elements.

Understanding my body type, which is more Kapha, influences my dietary choices. Pancha Karma includes a combination of breathwork, specific postures, and detoxifying treatments, providing a holistic approach to maintaining balance. While I'm not an avid gym-goer, daily brisk walks contribute to my physical well-being.

I've maintained a consistent weight and health for over 15-20 years by controlling indulgences and occasional cheat days with chocolates and ice cream. Now, let's delve into spiritual health.

Spiritual health involves daily practices to center yourself, recognizing that we extend beyond our mental and physical bodies. Strong spiritual habits provide a larger perspective, bringing balance to other areas of life. Personally, I engage in JAA meditation, chant the Hari Krishna Mantra, and read scriptures like the Gita. Regular temple visits and contributing to deity dress expenses are part of our family routine.

Charitable activities, such as sponsoring Abhisheka ceremonies, help maintain spiritual balance. I pray for everyone's success and approach my business as a service to the community, with a portion of income going to causes I believe in. Living in surrender and love daily, I find inspiration in Arjuna, the enlightened warrior from the Bhagavad Gita.

Incorporating devotional service into my business, I follow the path of karma yoga—performing actions with love and dedicating the results to a higher power. Believing in the principles of bhakti yoga, emphasizing love, I approach every aspect of life, be it business, family, or community building, with love and devotion.

Recognizing life's temporary nature and understanding that we are more than our bodies, I strive to serve others and the Supreme Lord. This perspective positively impacts mental and physical health. In conclusion, treating our bodies and homes as temples allows us to lead fulfilling lives with a lasting impact on those around us. Despite occasional illnesses, maintaining awareness of our mental health contributes to overall well-being.

Recently, I lost a dear aunt due to a massive brain hemorrhage, and I dedicate this podcast to her. It just happened today (the day I'm recording this podcast). She passed away, and for many years, she kept all her emotions bottled up inside. It was over 15 years, perhaps more, of suppressing her feelings.

Eventually, it reached a point where she couldn't contain it anymore, and it manifested physically. Maybe that was her soul's journey. The issue here is that mental health affects physical well-being. She left us at the young age of 47 or 48, which is quite early for a woman.

I want to highlight the importance of health because neglecting physical and mental well-being can profoundly impact your life, including your business. It's crucial to address and process emotions, releasing them with a solid spiritual foundation.

Please share your thoughts on the lessons learned from this podcast. I encourage each of you to share it with family and friends who might benefit, as I believe it can make a significant difference in society's well-being. Wishing you all the best, and I'll catch you in the next episode.

      Dear Sidz
      I connect to many points in this podcast. I am myself a practitioner of Vaastu Shastra .I ,my parents, wife and children live in a north east corner Block. My entire family has been taking Herbalife nutrition since the last 13 years. As charity, we have been giving free education every year to over 100 students in our school since the last two decades. We as a family go to our Lakeside farmhouse every week to be in the lap of nature. I thank God for helping me to lead a contented life and I sincerely feel that whatever obstacles and challenges I am facing right now have been designed by the divine force to make me a stronger and better person.
      Thank you Sidz for this enlightening podcast which took me down the memory lane.

    • Renuka Shri

      My deep condolences on your loved one’s passing.. may her soul rest in peace..

      Thank You so much for sharing your lifestyle secrets.. highly valuable for each person . Bcoz we all are humans having brain to think on right and wrong….
      We just need to be concious about our 4 bodies to be taken care of are….

      1. Mental

      2. Physical

      3. Spiritual

      4. Emotional.

      And the most important thing is they all need to be aligned and balanced proportionately..

      One has to take care of all of them at required frequent intervals….

      Even I was unaware of all these real concepts of Life earlier, but learnt from our non spiritual Guru.. who is not there physically but his lessons and values are still being followed by thousands of people, me one among them..

      Thanks for reminding me on the above most valuable concepts, it’s like a wake up call for all of us to set the priority to take charge of all our 4 types of body and take proper care in right proportion and at required frequent intervals, can’t ignore any one of them . Specially being a trainer or a Coach or a teacher have to take responsibility of ourselves first.

      Yes! We all learn from each others Life..for a better life.
      Thanks a lot for sharing such valuable important knowledge.

      Sidz, thanks for the beautiful inputs – Mental, physical and spiritual health, it’s truly needed for all people currently. I believe if we take care of health…we need not visit doctor in Hospital but rather surrender yourself to nature in the lap of Almighty!

    • Monalisa Lal

      We can do something impactful and worthwhile only when our physical, emotional, spiritual health are in place and then aware of karma which should be in line with our purpose of life.

    • Disha Gupta

      I have been drinking water from a copper vessel for a long time but got to know about panchkarma via your podcast. I search immediately for it and found 2 centers in the city itself. However, when I researched, it said monsoon is the best time to go for panchakarma treatments.
      Vaastu is definitely important. I feel it’s a forgotten knowledge and we need to be more aware of it.

    • Manmohan Agarwal

      Hare Krishna 🙏
      So sorry to hear about the untimely demise of your dear aunt@siddz. May the soul go back to the Lotus feet of the Godhead Krishna.
      This podcast is a simple but very effective antidote for anyone and everyone who considers health to be an important pillar in this sojourn called Life. A must listen for one and all irrespective of age ,gender, profession, cultural & religious affiliation etc.
      This 21mts of listening has the potency of changing the whole prospective of one’s view of life with respect to work , health, spiritual & mental synchronicity for peaceful joyous and satisfying life .
      The analogy of Arjuna from the 1st chapter of BG is so very perfect.
      We we all spiritual beings on human journey not vice-versa. We all have the seed of Love or Bhakti programmed in our DNA . Whatever we do we have to do it with an angle of Love, devotion or service.Each of our transaction ,whether a business transaction, a normal routine people to people transaction or an interaction with friends & family , all should have an ingrained element of Love or service. This will truly make our mundane and boring life become blissful and full of Ananda.
      Like you said the running away from the life’s duties (like Arjuna)isn’t a solution, instead doing one’s karma with a service angle is the ultimate path.
      Health is wealth, yes in this day and age we have to give utmost priority to all the things ,mental ,physical and spiritual that determines our health. If we are healthy then only we can do justice to the cause of our experience on this planet. Holistic living is the solution is what you rightly said.
      Thanks for this wonderful podcast.🙏

      ➡️ Have annual panchkarma which bslance vatta , pitta , kaffa. People having vatta are more thinner generally and having kaffa have a tendency of putting weight. Hence need to balance these doshas

      ➡️ Also one should do pranayama and breathing exercises.

      ➡️ Also need to control the urges of tongue 👅.

      Now let’s see the how to maintain spiritual health as follows:

      ➡️ Follow daily spiritual practices.

      ➡️ Do mantra chanting and scriptual learning on daily basis.

      ➡️ listen spiritual lessons of your Guru’s.

      ➡️ always be in mood of devotional service.

    • GOLOK BEHARI GHOSHAL

      Earth is rotating under magnetic field. So for this rotating magnetic field under the “Panchatatta”, this podcast is very useful.
      Synchronisation of Physical Health, Mental Health and Spiritual Health, otherwise Energy will totally lose.
      Food is our direct input into our body. So toxic food into body drain the all energy and disbalance the synchronization of whole body, mind and spiritual health.
      Really now in digital as well as physical world, this type of lesson is rare…so lots of thanks. I am also a pure vegeterian from my birth and fully devotee to my Lord krishna. My name is also Golok Behari i.e. who wander in Bishnu Dham means Sri krishna. I am very lucky that I have got my so wonderful family and you also. Thanks Sidz. My biggest positive learning.
