Good Health today is a luxury rather than a right. Despite advanced technologies, research and vast expenditures to achieve it, modern society is plagued with diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, allergies, pain, addiction, mental illness and more. Chronic illness can be attributed to and certainly aggravated by the quality and suitability of industrialised food which is available to most people world-wide. It is mass produced for weight, shelf-life and uniformity, contaminated by chemicals and low in nutritional value. Modern agriculture requires fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides, there is an overuse of water, increased evaporation, erosion and is an environmental disaster. Furthermore, it doesn’t create soil whereas in sustainable, natural systems of agriculture, there is diversity, complexity and positive interactions creating soil, rich in microorganisms necessary to sustain life on earth.
“Holistic Healing Village”offers the art of living in harmony with nature by combining Ayurveda principles with natural farming techniques to create a model in which health, healing and disease prevention can thrive providing pure food and water and a simple, stress-free lifestyle. It can be a centre of health education and healing where communities can learn sustainable living and food production, composting, recycling and reusing of natural resources. It can be the driving force behind innovation for living in harmony with nature where real food is the foundation. Ayurveda says “When the diet is wrong medicine is of no use - When the diet is right medicine is of no need”.
