The body’s immune system and capacity for regeneration are its primary mechanisms for fighting off infections and preserving itself. A strong body has the ability to harness fresh prana (life force) from the environment and ward off psychosomatic and physical problems. Our body is part of nature and keeping it in rhythm with nature by consuming natural products ensures a disease-free and strong system. The reason why Sanatan Kriya practitioners rarely fall sick or get depressed is because they rely on nature and natural products to correct the imbalances in their bodies. Herbal tea is one such natural product, develop a habit of having this daily to maintain health and protect yourself from environmental allergens.
