One important aspect is people are eating
much more than what they should eat.
Between one meal in the next meal
there must be an eight-hour space.
Whatever you have health problems
minimum 50% will go in six weeks time.
Speaker: Namaskaram Sadhguru.
Fasting on auspicious days has
existed in India since time immemorial.
But many Indians believe that
it’s unscientific and illogical,
until the work on autophagy induced during
fasting has been awarded the Nobel Prize.
Even I started doing intermittent
fasting this year. (Laughter)
So, why are such beneficial ancient
practices being labeled orthodox,
and then immediately implemented
once there is a Western approval?
Sadhguru: That’s because you don’t have the
right color of the skin. (Laughter/Applause)
I’ve been talking about this for forty years. All right!
And I have seen hundreds and thousands of
people who just become healthy and well,
simply because they’re not fueling up
all the time when the tank is spilling.
In the yoga center everybody eats at ten o’clock
in the morning and at seven o’clock in the evening.
Our lives are very physically active.
There are no automobiles inside the ashram it’s
a large place, everybody either walks or cycles.
Even if you have to go to the dining hall it’s a kilometer.
If you want to go your workplace it’s
half a kilometer, one kilometer like this.
All the time people are physically active.
So everybody is very hungry by the time it’s 3:30,
4 o’clock in the evening. They are extremely hungry.
But we learn to live with that because hunger…
Empty stomach and hunger two different things.
Hunger means your energy levels start
dropping, but empty stomach is a good thing.
In the yogic sciences – today modern
science also is coming in line with this…
But what we know by our experience, you
will spend a billion dollars to come there.
Because research is all about how
many million dollars, that’s how it is.
– your body and your brain works at its
best only when your stomach is empty.
So we always make sure, we eat in
such a way how much ever we eat,
our stomach must be always empty within
two to two-and-a-half hours time maximum.
So we go to bed hungry always.
People think they cannot sleep, they can sleep.
On an average, for 25 years, on an average
I slept only two and a half to three hours.
These days I’m getting little lazy and sleeping anywhere
between three and a half to four and a half hours
in spite of the level of travel that I have.
When I say level of travel, if I say my level of travel
in the next few days, you will fall off your chair.
Yes! Should I tell you?
No, not necessary. (Laughter)
Because in the next ten days I’m
in five different countries, doing…
I don’t know how many events all kinds of events
are able to keep this up simply because you don’t or
Eat it’s very very important
Everybody needs to means I generally eat only one meal
4:35 in the evening because I don’t like to sit in front of the plate and
Worry about how much to eat. I like to eat well
So for 35 in the evening, if I eat a meal, it’s only next day
Is this enough which am I looking? Ok? Hello. I’m
Not looking like your patient, isn’t it? I am NOT going to come to you
Because any correction and purification that needs to happen in the body your stomach needs to be empty it’s very very important
Otherwise the purification and the cellular level will not happen
You pile up things and then you have all kinds of problems. The first thing is inertia in the body
Inertia means there are many levels of inertia if you don’t notice all that
The amount of sleep that you have is inertia
all of you, you have come here to live or
Hello to live right not here here. I am saying to this life you want to live?
Intention of life is to live isn’t it but
Because you talked about American doctors this is all being picked up here
Also all American doctors say minimum seven to eight hours. You must sleep
So that means one third of your life you must sleep
Another two three hours four hours goes in bath toilet eating this this this, you know,
So literally 50 percent of your life is just maintenance
Suppose you have a vehicle you have a motorcycle or a car?
If it goes to service one day in a month
All right to keep it if it goes to service 15 days in a month. This is a nuisance, isn’t it? So
Most people have made their systems into your nuisance because their own body is a big impediment in their life
Anything they want to do their body will not allow them to do so
In this there are many aspects one important aspect is people are eating much more than what they should eat
Simply because they have been told you must eat more. Otherwise, you will become weak
this that joint is a way you keep your body a
Few left today
Everybody is trying to work towards a fuel-efficient car or motorcycle everything
This means what if the machine runs smoothly it will consume less fuel, isn’t it?
So if you sit here and you are very much at ease
now you consume less sure if you
Like this all the time
Then you consume more fill. It will want you to eat
Compulsiveness will come above this so
this new name intermittent eating
You should see in United States people come to our programs our programs will run 10 hours 12 hours so
But they will come with some biscuit and something else they say I have sugar
Intolerance. I have to I have to eat I
Tell them you’ll just be here. You’re not going to die. I’ll ensure because I don’t want anybody did on my hands. Alright
I’ll make sure you first day. No. No, I have to eat by third day. They gave up all that twelve hours without food
They sat there they perfectly fine
Health is not something you can do from outside
Health is something you have to do from within from outside when something goes wrong. You can seek some help
But all the time something is wrong with you. This means what you’re a faulty machine
Yes, all the time. Something is wrong with you. Why the not how this is designed?
This is designed for help every cell in your body is designed to create help, isn’t it?
They’re all working hard to create health, except you
Minimum eight hours gap is what is recommended in yoga between one meal in the next meal. There must be an eight hour space
If you do this, you will see half your problems of health, whatever you have health problems
Minimum 50% will go in six weeks time if you do certain other things which may right now see little extreme
Do you if you have a little yogic practice something meditative within you?
Then you will see
90 percent of your problem will go up 10 percent if it still persists we can treat it
Now it’s become like this the health care systems, especially where there is heavy insurance
Policies people are eating and drinking all kinds of rubbish go to the doctor and say fix me
It’s not how it works
