The physical body is termed as food sheath because the body comes into existence due to food, is nourished and sustained by food and when the body dies, assimilates in earth to produce food. The physical body also consists of the five organs of perception - eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin - and the five organs of action. Diet, nutrition, and sensory interaction are some factors that play a role in maintaining a healthy and balanced physical body.
Connecting with our bodies is essential for mind-body-spirit integration. Gaining daily awareness of our body’s signals and sensing micro-changes allows us to monitor our body’s needs and adjust accordingly. This modulation promotes positive self-change and enhances our disciplined efforts.
