Do you want to know how to keep yourself healthy for life? This is what Ayurveda has to offer. One of my teachers in India always used to say: “Ayurveda is your owner’s manual for life.” Learning about yourself through the lens of Ayurveda provides the tools to make better decisions for health and happiness. Ayurveda is the oldest, continuously practiced healthcare system with over a billion people using it worldwide today.
Our weight and our heart are tied together when it comes to our overall health. Obesity happens when medo dhatu, or fat tissue, starts to increase, according to Ayurveda.An unhealthy diet and lifestyle are two of the main contributors to obesity, Ayurveda says. The annarasa, product of digestion, becomes overly sweet and this causes improper digestion (mandagni) and the result is the accumulation of sneha, or fat.
