What Causes Imbalance in the Body?

Disease of any kind whether physical or mental indicates some imbalance inside us. This imbalance is imbalance in the energy body. When the body and mind are functioning in a healthy manner, energy or prana is flowing freely and uniformly everywhere. There is no blockage, congestion or depletion of prana anywhere. Hence there is no disease.

However, when the body and mind are being misued, functioning unhealthy, abnormally or are overexerted, energy flow becomes imbalanced, i.e. energy becomes blocked and congested at one place, depleted at another place leading to some kind of disease in the body.
