Humans. Men and women. Some skinny, some plump. Some hyper, some cool minded, some with a fluctuating mindset. Some creative, some perfectionists, some easy going. Some have a tough time fighting digestive disorders, some crib about skin afflictions, while some sniff and sneeze around frequently.

Trust it sounds familiar as you may yourself bear some of these traits. It is worth wondering why individuals have diverse personalities...

Ayurveda


by Alex Duncan, PhD

The first album “Purusha” – Relaxation & Yoga Music – might be interesting for people who normally turn yellow when they think of space-cadet-yoga-hippy types. This album is a single 60 minute sound-scape that is perfect for creating a calming zenned out vibe...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Music offers healing vibrations as a restorative tool in Ayurveda. I am always seeking quality recordings of relaxing songs, mantras and chants for Yoga or meditation. Alex Duncan offers three unique CDs of soothing music to help align the mind, body and spirit.

Ayurveda


by Conni Kunzler

Several Christmases ago a friend gave me a “dry skin brushing” kit, complete with a long-handled natural bristle brush, instructions for use downloaded from the web, and a long list of benefits. While I am often an early adopter of such things, I wasn’t sure about adding another “step” to my morning routine...

 

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: In this lovely article, Author Conni Kunzler recommends the benefits of dry massage therapy called as  garshana. She conveys that rather than a dry brush, raw silk gloves are used which are said to have properties that energetically charge the lymphatic system and increase prana, the vital energy or life force. Garshana is typically followed by abhyanga as the exfoliated skin is prepped to drink in the warm, natural oils. Abhyanga is simply a self-massage for the entire body.

by Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari, BAMS

Jaundice is the yellow pigmentation of the skin and membranes caused by elevated levels of bilirubin in the body fluids and occurs due to poor liver function or blocked bile ducts. This manifests as jaundice in appearance. So the basic fact is that there is a problem in the liver which leads to the occurrence of jaundice...

 

Editor's Note from Sonica Krishan: According to Ayurveda text, the taste as well as after taste of sugarcane is sweet. Also, it is heavy and slimy by nature and cold in potency. Ayurveda correlates sugarcane with the malady of jaundice. It is believed that the same tends to improve the working of the liver and act as a strength booster. In our ancient therapy of Ayurveda, the juice of sugarcane has been long advocated in the maladies of jaundice and anemia.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The connection of consciousness to our inner self, others and the divine is a most complex relationship. Ayurveda uses food as medicine to help purify the body and improve the spirit. Joan Aronowitz discusses the link between Ayurveda and Trancendental Mediation (TM). The clarity achieved by this technique offers us insight into the depths of our consciousness. Enjoy listening to this introduction and reflect on how you may integrate TM practice into your daily Ayurvedic routine. Namaste

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Kansa Vakti is known as "three-metal bowl" Ayurvedic foot massage and is valued as both a medicinal and nourishing treatment. It uses hand and metal bowl application of ghee (clarified butter) to the indian marma points and includes a foot, ankle and lower leg massage. The bowl is comprised of copper, zinc and tin; each having a specific therapeutic action. Benefits of Kansa Vakti include improved blood and lymph circulation, enhanced joint mobility in lower limbs, organ detoxification and reduction of pitta dosha. This excellent video demonstrates a relaxing Kansa Vakti massage. Try one today!
