Aarogya or 'absence of illness' is the word for 'good health', 'bodily well-being'. Baba declares that the sense of being well, is the result of consuming moderate food and moderate partaking in 'wholesome' recreation; as He said in the Gita, "Yukthaahaara Vihara". Health is endowed and maintained, by the mind withdrawing itself from the wild pursuit of sensory pleasures. And for this, Baba's insistence on Namasankeertan and Dhyan on the Rupa is the most effective prescription. Every discourse of Baba is a 'Mixture' (not a lecture) which will promote 'health' of the body and mind. Therefore, He says, not a word should be missed; not a point ignored. For mental peace, which is the very foundation of physical health, Baba prescribes detachment and devotion, the service of man and God, which are both the same.
The most patent of Baba's acts of grace are the cures it effects of chronic illnesses, pronounced as beyond medical science by experts. When He declares, as He sometimes does, "Cancer? Cancer is cancelled!" it has to disappear. It dare not survive that command. "Roll up that bed and follow Me", He has said often to persons afflicted in distant lands, in visions and dreams! and they have risen and walked.
