  • Ayurvedic Secrets of being Healthy

Nowadays being healthy has been a life style choice instead of one’s priority.

With rapid economic development and increasing urbanization of lifestyle, prevalence of diseases has reached alarming proportions among people in recent years. As ayurveda is recognized as foremost life science and describes ways to prevent and manage lifestyle disorders. Ayurveda provides effective solutions in the forms of dietary regulation, lifestyle advisory, detoxification and bio-purification like Panchakarma since its targets preventive, palliative rejuvenative interventions and medicaments.

Basically, in ayurveda promotion of health and prevention of diseases is given more importance than the treatment of diseases. Thus to maintain a healthy lifestyle one has to follow a proper Dinacharya or daily regimens.

Adopt an Ayurvedic routine:

  • Rise and shine- waking up at Brahma Muhurta or pre-dawn (1 or ½ hour before sunrise) gives us access to nascent oxygen in the atmosphere which mixes with haemoglobin which helps to boost your immune system and enhances absorption of minerals and vitamins.
  • Drink one to two glass of lukewarm water in empty stomach. It helps to flush out the toxins present in your body.
  • Elimination of waste-  one should evacuate the bowels every morning and feel that colon is clean and light. Do not ignore your urges and don’t wait.
  • Brush your teeth with bitter or astringent ayurvedic herbs.
  • Tongue cleaning and oil pulling- reduces bad odour and improves your oral hygiene by stimulating your tastebuds.
  • Abhyanga or oil massage-daily oil massage with medicated oil keeps your skin soft and lustrous, improves the blood circulation and relieves the exhaustion.
  • Vyayama or exercise- exercise or practising yoga will increase the flexibility, muscle strength and tone and improves your metabolism and respiration, energy and vitality.
  • Snana or bath with warm water for body and cold water for head will help you to relieve exhaustion and relaxes and cleanses the body.
  • Sadvritta or code of conduct-adopting proper code of conduct promotes mental health and well-being.
  •  Bhojana or meals- one should consume fresh warm food in a proper quality and in a specific quantity in the correct timings.

Having all 6 rasa/taste (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, astringent) will help to enhance one’s digestion.

Avoid spicy, oily, salty, processed and left-over foods.

  • Padabhyanga or foot massage- helps to improve sleep, reduces the effects of anxiety and depression and helps to boost energy.
  • Nidra or sleep- a good sleep is always significant for a mind-body rejuvenation. So for a healthy person 6-8hours of sleep is required.
