Dinacharyā - 002

Staying Up Late Makes You More Prone to Heart Disease & Diabetes


US researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey have found that “night owls” are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes or heart disease than people who get to bed and wake up early.


They found that early risers rely more on fat as an energy source and their activity spans a larger arc of diurnal hours, meaning fat may build up more easily in late-nighters, the scientists found.


Not only did they discover that night owls are less active than early birds, they found they are less sensitive to insulin — which both act as predictors for Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.


Recall: Ayurveda's Dinacharya prescribes getting up at Brahm Muhurt, but this has to be one of those habits along with the others mentioned in Dinacharya & Rutucharya, which will ensure your carbohydrate & fat metabolism (in Ayurvedic philosophy, dhatu agni) are normal and there are no toxins produced.


In the eventuality of any toxins being produced due to unavoidable reasons and effects of the environment, shodhan (Panchakarma) is essential as a Rutucharya procedure as prescribed (Vaman in March-April, Basti in August-September) & Virechan in October).


For avoiding high-risk diseases and leading a naturally healthy life, understand your own BODY CLOCK and your DESH of residence.


DESH means the habitat that you are a living, an utmost essential to identify which foods are best for your body.


Mimicking others' dietary habits & lifestyle has been one root cause of newer lifestyle diseases due to urbanization & globalization.
