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 Julie Cerrato: As we grow deeper in our understanding of Ayurveda, we can begin to incorporate its principles into our daily yoga practice. After consulting an Ayurvedic practitioner and determining your prakriti (doshic constitution), one can use this knowledge to more accurately approach their yogic practice. This interesting video by Melissa West, PhD demonstrates a full-length strong, active Kapha practice as she offers some modifications for Vata and Pitta. Enjoy! Note: The first 12 min of the video discusses business and then an introduction to Ayurveda. Asana practice begins about 14 min into the video.

There are energetic vibrations on many levels of the body, but there is a source of fundamental vital energy which ultimately connects the mind, body and spiritual consciousness. The doshas represent the gross bio-energies whose balance is critical for physical and mental health...

 

Editor’s Note from Sonica Krishan: This is another brilliant article by Susan Westfall wherein she focuses on the merits of prana, tejas and ojas, which are essential for the spiritual connection as well as maintaining self-awareness. She also narrates about the Ayurveda philosophy of the three doshas vata, pitta and kapha; which impart the doshic energy which in abundance imposes a transcendent, spiritual health for it links the physical state to a higher state of consciousness!

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: High cholesterol is a challenge for many. Hyperlipidemia has a strong genetic component but we can do many things to keep it at bay with diet and lifestyle. Watching what we eat, keeping stress low, getting adequate rest and including cholesterol-lowering herbs and foods are some of the key steps we can take to keep the body pure. This video offers some simple Ayurvedic home remedies to help boost good cholesterol, HDL, and lower bad cholesterol, LDL. Interstingly, watermelon seeds have been shown to contain a glucoside named cucurbotrin that has efficacy in reducing cholesterol and tulsi and neem have "lekhana," or scraping properties, to help remove cholesterol from arteries. All in all, eat healthy, stay happy and check in regularly with your physician and Ayurvedic vaidya to maintain good health. Namaste
