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.

Although different pathways ensue with food allergies and food intolerances, Ayurveda views the source of these two reactions as one; stemming from improper digestion and a build up of toxic Ama in the gut. Ama develops from undigested food and low Agni...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Food allergies are rare and commonly mistaken for food intolerances. A true food allergy will result in a fervent and specific immunological reaction involving antibodies and may proceed to anaphylactic shock. Often these are genetic and may include allergies to shellfish, tree nuts and legumes (soy and peanuts). In contrast, a food intolerance is often a physiological reaction of discomfort to a particular food but does not typically involve the immune system. Perhaps the most common food intolerance discussed these days is to gluten.

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: Rasayanas are the ‘wonder’ drugs that aid in increasing your natural immunity, enhancing your general wellbeing, improving the functioning of all fundamental organs of the body, and keep the signs of early aging at bay. This therapy occupies a prime position in Ayurveda and abides as a distinctive branch that deals with maintaining and ameliorating the body functions, including those of the brain.

Kapha dosha is defined by the characteristics of cold, heaviness, stability and dullness. If you have a kapha constitution or kapha imbalance, this video demonstrates how you can customize your yoga practice to encourage the opposite qualities that naturally bring kapha back into balance.

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.

From lore to science, this video discusses the universe according to the Vedic text "Srimad Bhagavatam." It is a peaceful and interesting tour of the unique view from Vedic astrology and cosmology. Enjoy!

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!

In allergic rhinitis or “hay fever”, there are a number of factors that come together to cause various uncomfortable symptoms of the upper respiratory tract (throat, sinuses, nose) and eyes. Typical symptoms include nasal congestion, a clear runny nose, sneezing, nose and eye itching, and excess tear production in the eyes. Postnasal dripping of clear mucus frequently causes a cough...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: As we begin to leave Kapha season and undergo Ritusandhi, we can reflect on the Ayurvedic perspective of what allergies are and how they develop. Alex Duncan offers some keen insight into how Ayurveda views allergic rhinitis or “hay fever.” Interesting read. Thanks, Alex!
