What are the Dharmas of the Body

In his book Health is Happiness, Dr. Raju describes the Dharmas (Duties) of the body as Dharma of Water, Dharma of Food, Dharma of Exercise, Dharma of Rest and Dharma of Excretion. We can talk about each Dharma and its nuances and importance for hours but to put it all in one sentence – observing Dharma of Water and Dharma of Food and other Dharmas in order to achieve the Dharma of Excretion (disposing of our bodily wastes) resulting in a total health, is my favorite way of putting it.
