Ayurveda, with its rich history and effective remedies, has improved the lives of many. But Ayurvedic practitioners often find themselves answering unfounded doubts, myths, and misconceptions relating to this ancient science.
Let’s try and understand this ancient practice better, because there’s more to it than meets the eye.
While herbs are used extensively, Ayurveda also employees ingredients like milk, honey, ghee (clarified butter), butter, salt and minerals in its preparations.
Ayurveda focuses on overall wellbeing of an individual and prescribes practices like dincharya (daily routine) and abhyanga massage that takes a preventive approach to keep illnesses at bay.
There’s no denying that yoga builds stamina, endurance, and flexibility. However, it’s also known to promote a feeling of calm. Practices like pranayama, visualisation, and meditation have also been successful in helping people deal with stress and tension and overcome mental illnesses.
Panchkarma therapies are not just about getting a relaxing massage. Using a combination of techniques like oleation, blood-letting, and enemas, Panchkarma helps rid the body of toxins, restore the doshas, and bring relief from a wide range of medical problems.
Ayurveda takes into account varying factors like seasons, individual body constitutions, and the properties of the food themselves (known as rasas) to prescribe dietary guidelines that maximize agni (digestive fire) and keep you healthy.
As you can see Ayurveda follows a multi-faceted approach towards wellbeing and incorporating it into your daily life can be immensely beneficial to you.
