The intelligence in life has grown food in the earth for human beings to eat. The food that man or woman eats enables them to live their daily life. Daily life is lived comfortably if physical health of a man or a woman is good. If physical health of a man or a woman is not good due to ill-health, he or she is unable to live daily life comfortably. When a man or woman has ill-health he or she takes medicines to get well.
Medicines apparently make a man, woman or a child get well. But, if they have ill-health, such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes etc., man or woman is advised to take medicines for the rest of their lives. Medicines taken for the rest of life to cure ill-health also give rise to ill-health, because there is no medicine for all ill-health. However, every medicine leads to ill-health.
Taking medicines for the rest of their lives has enormous consequences on finance, quality of life, social and family life. Personal life and personal relationships also have enormous consequences.
The intelligence in life as intellect in the mind has knowledge of medicine, which is helpful to cure ill-health due to bacteria, parasites and viruses. Intellect in the mind has knowledge of medicine for the rest of your life for ill-health such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes etc.
Man should ponder what could intellect as wisdom be concerning medicines needed for the rest of his life for ill-health?
The intelligence in life, as intellect in the mind, reveals wisdom that the human body eats food and it is food that makes ill-health as well as good health. Man does not eat medicines to get ill-health.
Therefore, wisdom of medicine reveals that if man or woman eats food that helps him or her live every day, but also cleans the body every day, man and woman will be free of ill-health that requires medicines for the rest of their lives.
Now what could be the foods that not only enable man and woman to live every day, but also clean the body? Man and woman also need to know why the foods that they eat lead to health as well as ill-health. They also need to know why the foods that clean the body lead only to good health and do not lead to ill-health.
The foods that lead to health have enough fibre in them. Fibre present in foods releases glucose slowly, which is needed by the body to live every day. Processed foods and sugar release glucose quickly due to lack of fibre in them, and glucose is deposited everywhere in the body. This deposition of glucose leads to ill-health.
The intelligence in life removes the deposited glucose everywhere in the body as long as foods with high fibre content are eaten. The high fibre content due to their capacity to absorb water removes toxins present in the blood. In this way high fibre content in foods maintains not only good health but also cleans the body.
The intelligence in life as intellect informs as wisdom to man and woman that the medicine for health and to maintain good health are foods that contain high fibre.
The foods that contain high fibre are millets. Millets contain all the protein, minerals, fats, essential amino acids that humans need to live a healthy, daily life. Millets are the food and the medicine for humans for the rest of their lives on earth.

The gift of the intelligence of life is not only in providing for every man, woman and child the nourishment needed for the health of their bodies and minds throughout their lives. But it is also the intelligence of life that provides deep understanding of this provision by enlightened beings, as presented in this series of articles.Thus, man is doubly blessed. Realising this is the beginning of gratitude – the beginning of wisdom.

German Translator’s Note:
“Let food be your medicine…“ as Hippokrates the Ancient Greek doctor said. Times have changed and there is rarely a doctor who gives advice to eat healthy instead of taking medicine. It is convenient to take chemical medicine: It works quickly and it scientifically proven, the patient accepts it, because he does not want to cure himself by eating well, but the average modern patient wants to be cured – by medicine. Thanks to Dr. Shankar and other wise doctors, which are rare in the world, food is reinvented as the only medicine which gives only good health.
