by Dr. Sonica Krishan,
ATH Co-Editor of Ayurveda

Nowadays, owing to the number of lifestyle related diseases that we seem to be facing, it is worthwhile to know and understand what ancient Ayurveda therapy has to offer...

 

Editor's Note from Sonica Krishan: There are a number of lifestyle related diseases like obesity, hypertension, anxiety, diabetes, indigestion, allergies et al and there are many more cropping up. Not only are these lifestyle diseases depriving and deluding, but these are also somehow prying with our natural comfort of wellbeing. The everyday lifestyle citation has been laid down since ancient times by the sages of Ayurveda therapy. And this reference guide comes true even today as wisdom excerpt to modern lifestyle. I would highly recommend you to acknowledge ancient Ayurveda lifestyle and follow it, so as to incorporate natural wellbeing and longevity into your life, keeping the lifestyle diseases at bay.
Please have a read. Namaste.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Hot, dry, pitta summer is here! As the sun and heat roll in, our skin is more susceptible to damage by tejas, so we must take steps to protect it. Abhyangha self-oiling massage is a wonderful way to nourish the skin during this season and a great method for relieving several bodily ailments. In Ayurvedic Practitioner Lisa Belisle's article "The Importance of Ayurvedic Oils," she discusses how beneficial herbal oils like sesame and sunflower can be to relieve skin conditions, insomia and muscle pain as well as help detoxify the body. Check out Lisa's article and then watch ATH's Abhyanga video to learn how to give yourself a daily massage. Namaste, Julie

Many of you might know of my intention behind writing this note at a very short notice. I was just shocked to see that we are not aware of what to do in case of accidental needle prick from an HIV infected source.

I will try to give all details at my level best so that in future this type of situation could not arise...


Editor's Note: I would like to wish our all of our readers a very happy new year. Here I am posting very useful information about AIDS for health professionals as well as the general public. This is one of the least talked about subjects but a very, very important topic as many of our doctors don't clearly know what action to take.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Pitta imbalances can be hard to spot for some individuals. Although we aim to keep agni strong, subtle signs of fire organ disturbance can arise in the liver, stomach, pancreas and even less pitta known outlets such as the skin, blood, muscles and eyes. Ayurvedic practitioner Debby Andersen reviews 6 key areas to observer for pitta fire disturbances. As always, we encourage you to read further about Ayurveda and contact a practitioner if you notice any of these pitta imbalance signs. Namaste

 

Ayurveda


 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Yoga is one of the most beneficial healing modalities. Each Ayurvedic dosha can be balanced via a unique yogic practice. For Kapha, energizing asanas and stimulating pranayama will awaken the grounded earth element. This Chopra Center video offers a beautiful demonstration of a Kapha Invigorating Yogic practice. Namaste.
