Both Ayurveda and modern medicine recognize a lack of physical exercise as one of the lifestyle factors that contributes to the development and progression of diabetes. Obesity increases the risk of developing diabetes and negatively effects blood sugar control in individuals who have diabetes. For these reasons, being active and maintaining a healthy body weight is important in the treatment and prevention of diabetes...

Ayurveda


by Melina Meza, E-RYT, BSN

With fall’s arrival, it’s an excellent opportunity to make some lifestyle adjustments that honor the changes occurring out in Nature. A few examples include: going to bed a little bit earlier each night, slowing down and doing less activity in general, wearing warmer clothes and scarves, saying YES to creative projects and hot baths, strengthening your digestive fire with warm soupy foods, and detoxifying your organs with a simple whole food diet and herbs before the onset of winter. Each will hopefully help you connect to Nature’s rhythm and bring nourishment to you and your family...

Ayurveda


by Lisa Belisle

Udvartana is an invigorating procedure done with cleansing grains, dosha or constitution specific herbs and oils, used to scrub and exfoliate the skin. This herbal massage will stimulate the skin, leaving you with radiant, toned skin and cleansed skin...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The unique series of body treatments with herbal oils, pastes and scrubs is what makes Ayurveda one of the most powerful natural medicines known to date. According to Ayurvedic scholar Sushrata, Udvartana is one of a three-part treatment designed to detoxify, reduce fat, strengthen and tone the body. By appling dry herbs in a "scrub" form to the skin through massage, Udvartana stimulates blood and lymphatic stimulation, toxin elimination and absorption of herbal medicine. This outline of Udvartana by Ay practitioner Lisa Belisle describes the process and what to expect from a treatment. Note that Udvartana is often best suited for kapha types and should not typically be used by pittas or vatas because of skin sensitivity. A video by Lisa Belisle on Udartana is also posted in the Ayurveda section of ATH. Namaste

Ayurveda


by Robert Medhurst

It’s probably pretty obvious to most that complementary medicine (CM) in general attracts a great deal of criticism by advocates of orthodox western medicine. Vitamins are frequently described as agents that do little more than produce expensive urine, herbs are labeled as useless if not outright dangerous. Bach flowers, reflexology and aromatherapy are dismissed as fanciful nonsense...

 

Editor's Note: Despite 200 years of documented success in treating both acute (including the most virulent epidemics) and chronic disease, Homeopathy has always been the object of forces trying to suppress it...
