Practicing Ayurveda for a healthy you doesn’t need to be complicated. Yes, it involves change, but it doesn’t involve a drastic change. You may exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and religiously go to your yoga class twice a week … yet you don’t feel as well as you should do. Something’s missing.
That something could very well be Ayurveda. This ancient Indian philosophy has and will be around for so many years for a good reason, it works. It promotes health through balance.
According to the ancient text of Ayurveda, health is achieved by keeping the body in balance. A great Ayurvedic sage once wrote,
”When there is equilibrium in the Doshas (Vata, Pitta & Kapha), Agni (digestive fire) & Dhatus (body’s tissues), when Mala (waste product) is being eliminated efficiently and when there is normal functioning of the five senses and harmony between body, mind & soul, then one can be said to be healthy.”
Here are some general Ayurvedic guidelines that support digestion:
Fish & milk (it affects blood and muscle tissue and forms toxins); Yoghurt & fruit (heavy, sticky, sweet, and sour should not be combined together as they cannot be metabolized together); Meat & milk (an incompatible protein combination)
Ayurvedic massage is a key part of Ayurvedic therapy. Just as a machine needs to be oiled, the body loves to have its largest organ, the skin, soothed, which is why oils are commonly used at Ayurva Wellness for your treatments.
Over 5,000 years of empirical research has refined Ayurvedic massage into a sublime art, and yet it is still unheard of by many. However, combining skilled knowledge of the body with knowledge of oils, music, and bodywork techniques has resulted in a profound art for balancing the body and mind through the medium of oil massage.
Ayurveda teaches us that we have a constitution, our own mix of the doshas, which is our individual psycho-biological makeup. By incorporating Ayurveda into our day-to-day routines and lifestyle, that something missing (even with the regular exercise, a healthy diet, and yoga) … your optimum health, can be achieved.
