An unhealthy mind, even in a healthy body, will ultimately destroy heath

"Ayurveda defines health as a state of mental, intellectual and spiritual well-being. "Sursrutha, the ancient scholar of Ayurveda defines health as a state of biological equilibrium where the sensory, mental, emotional and spiritual elements are balanced. WHO has defined the definition of health "as state of complete physical, mental, social well-being and not merely the absence of disease" Which has been already mentioned in ancient Ayurvedic test book.

Ayurveda states 3 pillars of life- mind, soul and body. So any physical imbalances disturbs the mental state.
