AYURVEDA
What is Ayurveda? Developed in India thousands of years ago, Ayurveda is a known as the world’s oldest health care system. It is a holistic healing and medical tradition that provides preventative, acute and chronic health guidance and wisdom through food and lifestyle choices and changes. Ayurveda, in its purest sense, is a modality of practicing purification of spirit and unification of mind, body and soul - of becoming one. The word Ayurveda comes from two Sanskrit words. “Ayu” means “life “and “Veda” means “the knowledge of.” Therefore, Ayurveda literally means knowledge of life as a whole. Ayurveda looks at the whole person including the mind, body, senses and the soul; therefore healing through Ayurveda is considered a holistic healing practice. Health is based on the five elements: ether, air, fire, water and earth, just as in nature. The way that these elements combine within any given individual determines which “dosha” or primary “type” they are: Vatta dosha  (ether and air), Pitta dosha (fire and water), and Kapha dosha (water and earth). Each dosha thrives and heals with specific food choices and ways of living and conversely becomes ill and out-of-balance when making poor food and living choices. Good health within Ayurveda occurs because it considers the uniqueness and individuality of every person. Healing is based on treatment protocols that address each person’s specific health challenges. Using lifestyle changes, specific dietary modifications, herbs, and cleansing practices, Ayurveda provides a powerful, effective health care system that honors each person’s uniqueness.

Editor's Note from Sonica Krishan: There are particular foods and diet options for your particular dosha type! Ayurveda lays much emphasis on the right food intake. It has been specifically acknowledged that a dosha (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) tends to get aggravated mainly by undertaking Aahara with the properties similar to the respective doshas. This is because 'like increases like'. Hence, the vitiated or aggravated dosha can only be nullified by taking foods which mainly oppose that particular dosha in properties. Pleasew watch the video with Ayurveda Diet Chart specific for the 3 dosha types - Vata type, Pitta type and Kapha type. www.drsonicakrishan.com

When lowering cholesterol, we often overlook factors like stress, poor digestion and sluggish lymphatic drainage.  Instead, we focus only on removing the cholesterol from the blood. Using a drug or herb to remove cholesterol from the blood may decrease cardiovascular risk, but it doesn't address how the cholesterol became high in the first place...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Excellent article by John Douillard, DC on cholesterol, Ayurvedic diagnosis of cardiovascular disease and the use of guggulu. Namaste.

 

Ayurveda


 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Do you experience mood swings, anxiety, memory loss, low blood sugar, exhaustion or fatigue? The very powerful Ayurvedic herb Shilajit helps address these conditions and many more. Shilajit is often termed a "rejuvenative" because of its potent ability to detoxify the body and promote tissue regeneration. Two of Shilajit's active agents are fulvic and humic acids, which act to draw out deeply rooted toxins from the body, thus allowing it to heal. Please note that Shilajit is not recommended for pregnant women. Please visit your Ayurvedic Practitioner for proper recommendations of Shilajit. Dr. Douillard discusses the numerous positive actions of Shilajit in this video. Namaste.

This Chopra Center video offers a beautiful demonstration of a Vata calming Yogic practice. Namaste

It is basically the malignancy of a hormone producing islet cells. This disease jeopardized his pancreas and part of his liver...

 

Editor's Note: Cancer is fast spreading life style disease of 21st century. It's more painful to decide where and how to go about it than the disease itself. There are often claims of miraculous cures, magic therapies and then combine that with the confusion of other conventional treatments. It's more painful to decide what to select and what not to select...

Both Vedic astrology and Ayurvedic medicine are part of the greater system of Yoga, a system which aims at Self-realization, our union with the Divine Being within us as the ultimate goal of life. For this reason we can call Ayurveda ‘yogic medicine’ and Vedic as­trology ‘yogic astrology’...

 

Editor's Note from Sonica Krishan: This is a nice article by author Roshan Baskota where he has specified the relativity between the age-old therapies of Ayurveda, Yoga and Astrology.

Does the color of some rooms make you squeamish? Itchy? Antsy? Does the color of other rooms make you soft? Calm? Wonderfully wobbly and weak in the knees?

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: We live in a technicolor world. But, we may not be aware of how much color truly affects us. For example, some colors like blue or white evoke a sense of serenity and calm, while firery colors like red or orange possibly enhance anger or rage. Ayurveda views color as an influential source that can affect our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Choosing colors that will benefit our doshic constitution can create significant energetic changes and enhance our overall health. Vatas respond best to grounding colors such as earthy tones but may also be creatively stimulated by yellows and greens. Firey Pitta can be managed with cool blues and Kaphas require vibrant, bright colors to motivate and keep them active. This interesting article on color and Ayurveda discusses the spectrum in more detail with a unique eco-friendly paint line developed specifically with the wisdom of Ayurveda. After reading it, I'm sure you'll never look at color the same way again. Namaste
