Disease generally occurs when we abuse our bodies or deprive them of basic requirements to keep us healthy over extended periods. Positive lifestyle changes—Yoga-meditation, stress reduction, good sleep, a balanced diet, moderate exercise—have a beneficial effect all the way down to the genetic level.”
