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.

1 out of every 3 people experiences some sort of digestive unease on a daily basis. It ranges from an unpleasant heavy feeling, to bloating, to heartburn, to acid reflux, pain, gas, constipation, or diarrhea, burping or distension. None of these are pleasant...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: In Ayurveda, a happy belly means a long, healthy life. Keeping our digestive fire, agni, strong throughout the year will help with immunity, rejuvenation and detoxification. Agni is one of the most important concepts in Ayurveda. If agni is high, then it can properly digest food, emotions and negative energy to keep the 3 doshas in check. Use your food as medicine to kindle agni. Focus on these carminitive spices and how they balance your doshas for strong agni and a well-rounded constitution. Namaste

by Conni Kunzler

I’ve just come out of a several weeks season of feeling overwhelmed—too many tasks and deadlines, a drum beat of personal demands, lots of waking up at 2:37 am, an irregular and fast-paced schedule, and underneath it all a churning and persistent anxiousness. The whole thing was “gut wrenching.”...

 

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: Another wonderful article by author Conni Kunzler, where she educates us about the need to be implementing Ayurveda recommendations in the everyday food that we eat. She narrates that Ayurveda suggests eating your biggest meal at midday when the digestive fire is strongest—in sync with the sun. And try not to eat anything 2-3 hours before bed for better sleep. Also, Mindful or intentional eating will encourage nourishment rather than a grasping for comfort or distraction. Please have a read.

These qualities do not "blend" together, but rather show their influence individually, either one trait or the other will present itself at a time...
