Due to the increased taste we end up eating more quantity than what is necessary to fulfill our Hunger.

Wellness Journey - Getting Started!

I keep listening to people who are worried about their health levels, pain, suffering, fears, confusions, etc.. They feel relieved after having a conversation but the worries surface again and again with more intensity... They get exhausted, tired, hopeless over time... They experience more pain, suffering, fear, confusions as the time progress... They feel stagnant, get struck, have no clues to improve their health further...

Reading: Natural Healing Mechanism!

Vis medicatrix naturae (literally "the healing power of nature", and also known as natura medica) is the Latin rendering of the GreekΝόσων φύσεις ἰητροί ("Nature is the physician(s) of diseases"), a phrase attributed to Hippocrates

Hippocrates believed that an organism is not passive to injuries or disease, but rebalances itself to counteract them. The state of illness, therefore, is not a malady but an effort of the body to overcome a disturbed equilibrium. It is this capacity of organisms to correct imbalances that distinguishes them from non-living matter.
