Human life is a precious gift of Mother Nature. Man is a miniature of nature. Another precious gift of nature is Ayurveda. Ayurveda is an Indian system of healthy life that developed with Indian civilization and continues to reign the health industry.
Since the dawn of human civilization, we are aware that “Health is Wealth.” Therefore, the man puts in countless efforts to preserve the health in a best possible way. According to many healthcare systems, a disease free-body is health. For others, attending the body-mind not in the state of illness is the best measure of maintaining health. It is only Ayurveda that has a holistic approach to health.
In Ayurveda, health is when body, mind, soul, and senses exist in equilibrium and harmony. Primarily, it is the science of healthy life and secondarily, a means of healing sufferings.
1. The Doshas are Balanced: An individual is composed of three body energies – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These three body doshas govern your health. They are often in a state of imbalance due to modern stress and lifestyle pattern. When Vata, Pitta and Kapha are out of harmony, you suffer from various diseases. The Ayurveda science helps in balancing the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha so that its adopters can lead a healthy life.
2. Offers Nourishment: Ayurveda offers nourishment and nurturing for a healthy life. Firstly, it advocates the concept of sattvic. In Sanskrit, sattva means “pure essence.” Ayurveda recommends sattvic diet, the purest diet to savor in order to support yourself being the best. Secondly, Ayurveda understands that human being is the finest product of nature. When you and your surrounding environment are harmonious, then you are in optimum health. So, Ayurveda practice fosters harmony between the two.
3. Clearing Energies: In the modern era, we need to recalibrate our physical and mental settings. The failure to do so results in intoxication. Ayurveda suggests clearing out what’s not working for you and your life. This allows you to make room for new changes, positive ones. The Ayurveda diet and Panchakarma are the natural detoxification techniques with mankind. Complementing these two with yoga practices of meditation allows you to calibrate with greater ease. Gain access to inner peace and health with Ayurveda and Yoga.
4. Much More Than Body: Ayurveda constantly reminds us that we are much more than muscles and bones. We have a soul that embodies various elements. The Ayurveda practices affect both physical and spiritual health. Starting from the food you put into your stomach to the Ayurveda principles you adopt, you will notice your healing from within. And, eventually, your spiritual health becomes balanced.
5. Better Cellular Health: Research shows that Ayurveda is beneficial for cellular health. The healing of Ayurveda has the potential to regenerate the cells. Optimal regeneration of the cells is the indication that your body is capable of performing innate curing. Therefore, Ayurveda plays an important role in keeping the body as well as your life healthy.
6. Reduction in Toxins: Quoting a source, there are three types of toxins. The most common being ama, which is a waste product that gets stored in the digestive system due to unhealthy eating. If not cleared up, it will circulate throughout the body leading to imbalance. Ayurveda corrects this imbalance by reducing toxins in the body by the way of diet and lifestyle.
7. Stronger Agni: “A good digestion turneth to all health.” The day you start to fill your stomach with Ayurveda prescribed foods at a favorable meal time, you will notice the stronger digestive fire, Agni. Enhanced digestion prevents the feeling of lethargy, bloating, etc. causing you to have higher energy levels. Optimal digestion is also linked with healthy weight maintenance.
8. Greater Sense of Well-Being: Our food and lifestyle choices influence how you feel. Food and lifestyle directly affect your digestive system. When your digestive system is weak, you feel uncomfortable that ultimately manifest into negative feelings. With Ayurveda, you can keep your digestive system healthy that in turn will keep you in well-being.
9. A Closer Understanding of Ayurveda: Ayurveda understands that we are a part of nature. Nature has five elements of air, water, fire, space and earth. So, naturally, within us exists all these five elements. With the help of Ayurveda wisdom, you can learn your prominent element and the ways to keep it in balance. Air shows up in the body as high energy and forgetfulness, fire manifests in the form of anger, inflammation, and earth relates to loyalty.
10. A Map to Healthy Diet and Lifestyle: Ayurveda strongly supports eating for your doshas and practicing a healthy routine. An Ayurvedic change in your diet and lifestyle can reward you with years of life filled with well-being.
The role of Ayurveda in healthy life is of utmost importance. Acknowledge and incorporate the wisdom of Ayurveda for eternal health.
