THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Many a common ailment may have to do with the way one breaths, sits, stands or walks and there could be very simple ways to prevent diseases like by, say, practising the right method of breathing. Bodytree, an indigenous people’s health and education movement, having its seat at Kallar near here, is offering such simple solutions based on the principles of Adivasi Ayurveda.

Bodytree, headed by Ayurveda practitioner M.R. Vijayan, is all set to launch this year’s One-Day School on Health to help people learn simple and basic ways to improve their health through breath retraining, creation of structural and postural awareness, nutritional and fluid balance and safe herbal remedies.

“When structure, posture and breathing are balanced, everything is balanced,” Dr. Vijayan says.

Adivasi Ayurveda, he points out, advocates that the route to perfect health can only be attained through a balance of structure, posture, breath and nutrition. A balance in the posture can only be achieved if there is a balance in the structure. A balance in the structure can only be achieved if there is a balance in the breath. A balance in the breath can only be achieved if there is a balance of the bodily fluid and sufficient haemoglobin in the blood.

Adivasi Ayurveda, he says, aims to create harmony in the body by correcting imbalances of structure, posture, breath and nutrition.

Bodytree is planning to host one-day schools for children and small groups beginning Tuesday. The classes would be mostly interactive in nature with demonstrations on the right structure and posture.
