Abstract

Due to on growing human interventions in every arena of nature, the balance in the natural functioning of a human body has been disturbed. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to find entities that support lives in their nascent forms. The food we eat, the home we dwell in, the modes we take to travel, the modes of our entertainments, and so on, are so much artificial that we almost fail to recognize its natural counterpart. This is not only affecting the natural evolution of life, but also impregnating the existing life structure with loads of undesirable malfunctioning. Hypertension, depression, aggression, cancers, etc., are some of the medical conditions that are identified as the implications of sedentary and/or hyper-engaged lifestyle. We have defined these problems as deviations of mind and body from its native characteristics that, in this paper, are defined as excessive cognitive conditioning. While external tangible repercussions of interventions in nature may be natural disasters and calamities, its impact on human body could be Physical, Psychological, and Psychosomatic (P3) disorders. In this paper, we present a process called Active Transformation of Mind and Body through Abundant Natural Methods, or ATMAN to deal with the P3 disorders in human body and mind and to minimize these deviations with least of efforts and accessories. The research work discussed in this paper are qualitative by nature, and thus foresees an ample scope for it to cascade with wireless technologies, especially the machine-to-machine oriented communications, such as 5G, and more futuristic such as Human Bond Communications Beyond 2050, for efficient and prompt information dissemination and analysis.
