The adage 'health is wealth' holds a lot of meaning in Vastu Shastra also. Vastu has laid down some important guidelines to be followed by people, for keeping a good health and remain in the best of spirits. It is advisable to take advice form a Vastu expert if any of the family members is suffering from prolonged illness that has not even been diagnosed properly. It may be due to a Vastu defect with the setting or the placement of things in the house.
Following certain simple Vasthu guidelines can help you prevent illness and diseases and promote a good health. Read on to know how some minor Vastu corrections help in fighting aliments better and also bring a quick recovery:
General health can be improved by sleeping with the head towards the South.
Staircase in the exact centre of the house would lead to health problems. So, take care of get the stairs built in a corner.
Heavy furniture should not be kept in the middle of the house, as it is the ‘Brahmasthan’ and needs to be kept as empty as possible.
Ensure that there are no overhead beams running through the centre of the house or it would lead to a disturbed mind.
It is important to keep the central area or the ‘Brahmasthan’ clear of any heavy concrete structures. The ‘Brahmasthan’ should be kept open and free from heavy objects, pillars and beams.
One of the main causes behind sickness is an imbalance of the fire element in the house. If your house faces South, with a slope towards that direction and any water reservoirs/source of water in South-East, the possibility of health problems will continue to exist. To cure the situation, make sure that the gate along the South wall always remains shut. Secondly, the gate should be high and made of wood, so that the road outside is not visible.
Lighting a red colored candle in the fire zone (South-East direction) daily is important for good health.
If the kitchen is not located in the fire zone, the occupants will be vulnerable to health disorders. So, always plan the kitchen in the South-East direction.
The boundary wall of the house should be of same height as the gate.
If someone in your house is keeping unwell, keep a burning candle in his/her room, for a couple of weeks.
Place an image of God in the house that faces South direction, for ensuring health.
