4 tips to always stay young?

The following is an unedited transcript of Sadhguru's video. For better readability, breaks and highlights have been added by the editors.

#1 Develop Ojas

Ojas means it’s a nonphysical dimension of energy. If sufficient ojas hangs around you, you’re well lubricated, you’ll pass through the world effortlessly. You will see, for some people, passage through this world is terribly difficult. For some people, wherever they go, they will pass through smoothly – have you seen this? You yourself, on a certain day it looks like the whole world is cooperating with you; on another day, a whole world seems to be standing up against you. Have you noticed this?

If you create enough ojas, then you will pass through the world smoothly. Now you’re doing Shambhavi – if you’re doing it every day, you will develop ojas; some amount of ojas, which you’ll see, suddenly everything seems to be facilitated for you – it just happens. If you generate sufficient Ojas to wrap every cell in your body with this, well, you will not only be healthy, you will be bouncing healthy. It could greatly reverse the aging process, which we have in many ways documented through various scientific research, and medical university is recording this. But above all, well, I’m the living proof that health is not something that you worry about, health is not some kind of diagnostics for you that you are healthy; it is a way of keeping life in an overflowing sense of exuberance.

#2 Consume honey with warm water

So, building oxygen into the blood is one of the important things, because how healthy the body is, how easily it rejuvenates itself, depends on a high level of oxygen in the blood, and that capability will go down, particularly women have to be careful on this, because of the biological process that their heamoglobin content may go down, and their ability to carry oxygen in the blood will come down, which will make them unnecessarily exhausted, will make them look unintelligent, and… yes! If the RBC is low you feel dumb because there’s not enough oxygen in the brain, and it doesn’t function the way it needs to function – both the body and the brain.

So, to take care of this one of the simple things is, you consume a little bit of honey in warm water, on a daily basis. And you will see slowly the RBC content will go up. If there is more oxygen in the blood, suddenly you feel a burst of energy, suddenly everything is active, the rejuvenation system in the body is going up, the dead cells are being replaced quickly, the level of inertia that you feel in the body is much lower, the level of inertia that you feel in your mind is much lower.

#3 Consume Neem & Turmeric daily

What the neem does to your system? Well, in more tangible terms, one immediate thing it will do is – it will keep your alimentary tract clean. So, within this alimentary tract there are a whole host of microorganisms. Many of them have turned friendly to us – we’re living because of them, we are able to digest food because of them. Many, many functions in the body happen because of them. But still there are many who are harmful to us.

The uniqueness of neem, especially when it is taken along with turmeric, if these two things go together, largely those things which are not necessary for the body, those things which can harm the body, any kind of parasital life which is there – all these things get eliminated.

#4 Bring sufficient raw food in your diet

You can keep this body like breeze – simply it goes ahead of you, you don’t have to drag it wherever you go, it must float ahead of you. You can keep it like that with a little bit of yogic practice – very little, I’m saying. If you invest 20-30 minutes a day upon your well-being, you can do this, just putting the right kind of fuel. I’m not telling you eat this way, eat that way – just experiment and see, all right? Just experiment and see. Tonight if you go, instead of eating whatever cooked food, just eat fruits and see. Tomorrow morning you will not need an alarm bell, you’ll wake up before the alarm bell.

What you should do is, today you start 10% natural food – fruits, vegetables, whatever. Tomorrow make it 20%, 30%, like this, in 9 days you eat 100%. Then you bring it down; stay in 100, if you have any physical ailment, stay there for 5 to 7 days. If you’re a healthy person, stay there for one or two days, and then cut it by 10% every day. Bring it down to 50% and hold it there and see; for most people, it’ll work at its best. If you want little more or less, you can adjust it accordingly. This is something you have to find your own rhythm within yourself.
