Prana Prana is a Sanskrit word that has many profound meanings. The word is composed of two parts - pra = foreword or before, and ana = breath. What is before breath? Life is before breath and is the cause of breath. One synonym of prana in Sanskrit is Ayur. Prana and Ayur also mean soul (Jiva) and are responsible to hold the soul into the body.

Genetics, diet & lifestyle

There are several things, first it is important to be open about fears as the act of looking at them and speaking about them reduces their power. Second, the genetic disposition of people needs environmental and dietary support to manifest - this means diet & lifestyle that are the foundation of Ayurveda.

So situations from the past (genetics, illnesses that parents had, etc.) need support in order to manifest in your life. Gene expression is optional !

Psychology is important in this possible expression of genetic tendencies, however, no one single factor (environment, lifestyle, diet, psychology) is sufficient alone to express genetic disease manifestation. This is true weather it is cancer, liver disorders, auto-immune diseases, or a host of other diseases. Ayurveda places the importance on these factors (environment, lifestyle, diet, psychology) equally in order to prevent illness. This is the key of longevity - a balanced approach to life. Gene expression can be "turned on or off" by diet. Studies have shown that genetic are not as powerful a factor in cancer manifestation as lifestyle & diet. The number currently quoted is that only 3% of cancer cases can be contributed to genetic alone.

This is good news ! You have control over your life & health by following Ayurvedic lifestyles as per your constitution !
