अर्थात् शरीर और स्वास्थ्य को स्थिर, सुदृढ़ और उत्तम बनाये रखने के लिए आहार, स्वप्न (निद्रा) और ब्रह्मचर्य – ये तीन उपस्तम्भ हैं। ‘उप’ यानी सहायक और ‘स्तम्भ’ यानी खम्भा। इन तीनों उप स्तम्भों का यथा विधि सेवन करने से ही शरीर और स्वास्थ्य की रक्षा होती है।
Are we not living terribly anti-life routine? Do you love your life? your family? If yes, act.
Isn’t it a heinous crime to waste human life? Yes, it is terrible crime. It is called प्रज्ञापराध.
धी धृति स्मृति विभ्रष्ट: कर्मयत् कुरुतऽशुभम्।
प्रज्ञापराधं तं विद्यातं सर्वदोष प्रकोपणम्।। — (चरक संहिता; शरीर. 1/102)
अर्थात् धी (बुद्धि), धृति (धैर्य) और स्मृति (स्मरण शक्ति) के भ्रष्ट हो जाने पर मनुष्य जब अशुभ कर्म करता है तब सभी शारीरिक और मानसिक दोष प्रकुपित हो जाते हैं। इन अशुभ कर्मों को प्रज्ञापराध कहा जाता है। जो प्रज्ञापराध करेगा उसके शरीर और स्वास्थ्य की हानि होगी और वह रोगग्रस्त हो ही जाएगा।
If there is sickness, man would jump between sleep and food, try to correct them, but will hardly pay attention to Brahmcharya :). Such is the shoddy state of our modern living. Think about it.
Brahmcharya doesn’t only mean control over sex? That is artificial and in-human! it is about complete self-governance of body and habits!

Men with low sperm counts at increased risk of illness, study suggests
Men with low sperm counts are more likely to have a number of health issues that put them at increased risk of illness, new research suggests.
A study of 5,177 men found those with low sperm counts were 20% more likely to have more body fat, higher blood pressure and more “bad” cholesterol.
They were also much more likely to have low testosterone levels.
The study’s authors said it showed that men with low sperm counts should also be tested for other health problems.
Low sperm count and problems with sperm quality are factors in around one in three couples who are struggling to get pregnant.
But for this new study scientists analysed men in infertile couples in Italy, to see whether semen quality is also a marker for men’s general health.
They found more of the men with low sperm counts had metabolic syndrome – a cluster of risk factors including a higher body mass index (BMI) and raised blood pressure. These increase the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
The men were also 12 times more likely to have low testosterone levels, which reduce muscle mass and bone density and can be a precursor to osteoporosis, a condition that weakens the bones and makes them more likely to break.
Dr Alberto Ferlin, who led the study, said: “Infertile men are likely to have important co-existing health problems or risk factors that can impair quality of life and shorten their lives.
“Fertility evaluation gives men the unique opportunity for health assessment and disease prevention.”
