The life in the
human body is maintained by 9-13 AUTO systems which function
automatically and the nature is responsible for the above
functioning. The 9-13 AUTO system of human body consists of
Skeletal, Muscular, Circulatory, Respiratory, Digestive, Nervous,
Reproductive, Urinary and Excretory system. Similarly there are
7 elements in food products which are also very essential for
the human body for living. Carbohydrates, Proteins, Fats,
Vitamins, Minerals, Water and Roughage are the seven elements in
the food products.
Without even one of the essential elements of life which are 5
attributes of nature i.e. Air, Soil, Water, Fire and Sky, the
human life is not possible. Most of us are working and living in
comfortable surroundings and hardly ever go out in the natural
atmosphere so we need to co-exist with natural environment in
order to live harmoniously. But modern lifestyle or environment
is day by day deteriorating and it is clear that it would become
a threat to our existence.

What is Nature ?
Nature is living by observing the rules of nature related to
health of the individual. A system of Medicine means any
independent system that ensures healing or cure of all
diseases. The scientific system of medicine is based on the
natural way of living.

Finger. Thumb indicates Fire or sun, Index finger indicates
Wind or Air, Middle finger indicates sky or space, Ring

The human body also requires sunlight which is the best
element and has remained unpolluted. Insufficient exposure
to sunlight on the human body decrease the function of blood
circulation and increases lymphocinesia in our body. Human
metabolism system and as well as other internal organs also
slows down. The sunlight layer protecting our earth is also
being destroyed very slowly every day thus allowing harmful
ultra-violet rays to penetrate inside the earth which is
very harmful for all the living beings on the earth.
