It’s difficult to fix a number to how many gods there are in the Hindu faith—the highest estimate is 333 million. The gods have different characteristics and abilities, so Hindus will pray to different gods for different requests. Many forms of spiritual healing exist in the Hindu tradition, from the time of the Vedas to Hinduism in its contemporary form. Ayurveda gave Hinduism a guide for medical and spiritual healing and enlightenment. The Ayurveda is the oldest of traditional healing guides that Hinduism has to offer us. “Diet, herbs, water, minerals, and other treatments are [typically] used for cures” Christianity has no tools for healing or a good diets like the Laws of Moses for dietary practices.

Deuteronomy 14:21: You shall not eat anything that has died naturally. You may give it to the sojourner who is within your towns, that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner. For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. That Sojourner and foreigner is you that Jesus never took up a concern about a man's physical health but only his spiritual health. It was Paul who spoke of the body being a temple, 1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Many think this is a dietary statement but it is not. It's sole purpose is to warn a person about sexual immorality. 1 Cor 6: 13 Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. Salvation is not a dietary plan nor does it place any emphasis on what you partake in other than sex. You can have a heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes and cancer but you cannot have sex. The Hindu concept is worried about your body and soul, Christianity is only worried about your soul. So you can die young but you must be saved when you do it.
