Ayurvedic self massage (abhyanga) with warmed, herbal oil is an excellent way to get in touch with your body and mind. It gives you time to check in with yourself and find areas that need special attention. Besides leaving you feeling warm, cared for and refreshed, abhyanga soothes your nervous and endocrine systems, rejuvenates your skin, tones muscles, eliminates impurities, promotes youthfulness, reduces the effects of stress, is relaxing and just feels terrific. Overall it's wonderful!
Consider the consistency of melted cheese and imagine your gut trying to break it down - not an easy task. Several modern studies point to the many health risks of regular cheese consumption, yet it is as ubiquitous in our cooking as salt and pepper. So, imagine my happiness when I discovered this recipe! It is so simple that even I was surprised at its tastiness; especially when I added my own flavors to the mix. Hopefully this will offer a tasty alternative to cheese for you as well!
As summer rolls around, the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, we naturally heat up as well. Some of us weather the heat better than others, but if you are naturally a fiery type, you are more prone to get overheated in both body and mind. Ayurveda is so wonderful because it reminds how to make choices so we can stay balanced and content. It tells us that like increases like and opposites balance. Sometimes it is the simplest of things that can have the greatest effect on our health and well-being. Here are some Ayurvedic tips on how to stay cool, calm and collected this summer.
Both Ayurveda and Yoga are profound sister sciences that are just as useful in our modern lives as they were thousands of years ago. They both have the same goal: to eliminate suffering. Together, Ayurveda and Yoga give us the tools we need to support self-healing and gain self-knowledge. By balancing the mind, body and consciousness, we become happy and content, which allows us to develop our highest potential in life.
Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which includes Asperger Syndrome, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder and Rett Syndrome, are neuro-developmental and neuropsychiatric disorders of unknown etiology, though they all show a strong genetic basis. They are detected in childhood and continue into adulthood.
In Ayurveda, medicated oils and ghritam (medicated ghee) are prepared using specific processes and principles described in detail in the classical Ayurvedic texts. These remedies are used by Ayurvedic physicians for many kinds of disorders affecting the different systems of the human body.
Ayurveda has enjoyed a longtime love affair with oil. So it’s no coincidence that the Sanskrit word for oil, sneha, also means love. Snehana means the application of oil, which is performed externally on the skin through therapeutic treatments, or internally through consuming oil orally.
Ideally, all of our meals would include all six of the Rasas. Unfortunately, getting a full range of the six tastes in every day can be difficult, especially when traveling, eating out at restaurants or cooking without knowing the principles of Ayurveda. A good way to begin understanding how important the experience of taste is in Ayurveda is to learn about Rasa.
