With the advent of highly commercialized diagnostic medicine, the common man is living in utmost confusion. Every day medical doctors and experts are labeling new disorders with no cure or preventive treatment. Many neuro-degenerative diseases including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, multiple sclerosis, leuko-dystrophies and muscular dystrophies occur as a result of neuron-muscular degenerative processes.
As research progresses, many similarities appear which relate these diseases to one another on a sub-cellular level.
Before we talk about genetics, health and medicine or new treatment, we should try to seek a proper answer to a basic question. What is regulatory system In our body? What forces are working behind our nervous system and genetics? Is there any relation between thoughts, emotions and hormones?
I would believe that thoughts and emotions are important in the process of brain - body regulations. I am sure their is relation between thoughts, emotions, motions (actions) and hormones because your body needs something to provoke itself to start making (or depleting) certain hormones.

Ayurveda, the knowledge for long life not only focus on molecular basis of body cells, but also mind and consciousness. The role of consciousness is clear when we consider the relation of life style with our health and disease. It is an essential component of holistic and integrative medicine.
The manifestation of consciousness is evident with the intellectual immune response of our body to a disease or state of uneasiness. In fact the Ayurvedic understanding to health and disease is fundamentally different from Western medicine. Ayurveda views the body as an abstract pattern of intelligence, compared to the reductionist western model of the body that views it as a sort of machine. Disease results from hostile behavior of consciousness via losing connection with inner intelligence.
So our point is that there are more subtle entities beyond neurons and genetics. We can call these entities as the life forces or we can give a name of “ life ”. Ayurveda covers not only body and mind but also this life aspect. This life is not visible under microscope but you can perceive it in your life style. And the root cause of a genetic or neuro degenerative disease may be pin pointed in the genes and life forces. The Sanskrit name for the word life is Jeevan. The root of degeneration can be in genes or jeevan. To find a preventive treatment or cure we must depend upon genetics as well as jeevetics.
