Just like how only a healthy bud can blossom, similarly, only when we are healthy can we blossom to our full potential. To attain a perfect state of health, one has to be mentally calm, steady and emotionally stable. Swasthya means health. It also means being in one's self.

The Swasthya or health is not just confined to the body and the mind but is also connected with consciousness. The clearer the concept is, the clear the one’s consciousness becomes. The more one’s sense works the better being it increases.  

Prana (life energy) is the basis of health and well-being for both, the body and mind. You can gain prana through meditation. When your body is alive with more prana, you feel alert, energetic, and full of life. The lack of prana results in lethargy, dullness, and low enthusiasm levels.

This results in a positive state of mind, which in turn has a positive impact on the physical body, brain, and nervous system. Consequently, the illness decreases with the shape.
