All work no play makes an immune-deficient body.

In Ayurveda, Ojas is our protection, our immunity from disease.

Try a few of these tips from Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC to build up your Ojas…or contact us for a private consultation…

Building your Physical Ojas:

• Eat Seasonally. If we eat what is offered by nature seasonally and without much processing, our ojas will tend to be strong. We will then naturally crave that which is attuned to our constitution (Body type/Dosha).
• Move your breath through your body for 20 minutes upon arising.
• Cleanse or Detox in the Fall and Spring. Ama (undigested foods and experiences that store in our bodies) When Ama is less, ojas is more.
• Eat 2-3 meals a day. Allowing proper time for complete digestion enables ojas to be formed. Eating too frequently creates ama.
• Sip hot water throughout the day. Sipping hot water will clear your channels of ama and refresh the space.

 

Building Ojas in the Mind Body:

• Meditate Daily. Allowing time and space for the digestion of mental impressions clears the confusion and mental ama (toxins).
• Self-massage with warm oil (sesame) before showering will help to nurture your nerves, which enables ojas to spread throughout you.
• Create space for down time. The feeling of shared joy, laughter and feeling alive, boosts ojas. Make time each day for a dose.

Hold the Ice!

Hold the Ice!

Ayurveda is all about your digestive fires and ice is not your friend.

Think of your digestive fires as a bonfire you are going to cook your food on but you poured water on it first and now the heat of the fire needed to cook the food is gone. Yep – same happens when we drink our beverages with ice!

Spring Barley Risotto ~

Spring Barley Risotto

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves a healthier alternative to the more traditional arborio risotto rice, barley adds iron and fiber to this fresh take on risotto. One cup of the green peas found in this dish offers more protein than a large egg.

Serves 4
2 Tablespoons oiive oil
1 cup pearled barley
2 leeks, white and green parts only, thinly sliced
½ cup white wind or water
2 cups water
Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
14 ½ ounces vegetable broth
1 bunch of asparagus (about 1 pound) trimmed and cut in 2 inch pieces
1 box frozen peas defrosted (or fresh)
½ cup fresh grated parmesan

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add Barley and leeks and cook until it begins to soften about 5 to 7 minutes. Add ½ cup wine or water and cook for another 5 minutes and water starts to evaporate. Add remaining 2 cups of water and bring to boil and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid absorbs, about 10 minutes

Add broth and continue to cook , stirring occasionally until barley is tender and creamy, about 10 minutes. Add asparagus and cook until tender another 5 minutes. Stir in peas until heated through (if using fresh cook throughly), Add parmesan and mint and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Curried Apple and Celery Soup ~

Curried Apple and Celery Soup ~

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves the following spring soup recipe, so yummy and it’s good for your digestion too!

Curried Apple and Celery Soup Recipe

Ingredients
(4 servings)
2 Stalks Celery, roughly chopped
2 Green Apples, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 cup Milk
1/2-cup Vegetable stock, or water
1/2 teaspoon Cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
Salt and Pepper, to taste

To begin making the Apple Celery Soup, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add in the chopped celery root and the apples.

Sprinkle some salt and sauté until the celery and the apple turn a little soft.

Keep the saucepan partially covered so the steam that gets generated helps them to cook faster.

Stir in the remaining ingredients and add it to the blender. If you don’t have a blender that can’t take in heat, then wait for the mixture to cool before you can blend it.

Blend the apple celery soup mixture in the blender until smooth.

Pour the soup back into the saucepan and check for the salt and pepper levels. Adjust to suit your taste.

When you are ready to serve the soup, give the soup a quick boil

Enjoy!

Honey ~

Honey ~

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC and the benefits of honey…

Through the Ayurvedic lens, raw honey has many benefits including scraping fat and cholesterol from the body’s tissues making it the “go to” sweetener for kapha or anyone trying to reduce kapha in their body. However, eating a jar of honey is not going to create weight loss…Ayurveda is about balance so let moderation be your guide.

Ayurveda cautions that heating honey above 108 degrees F will render it toxic at the cellular level which could cause blockage of subtle energetic channels.

Today we know that when honey is heated its molecular structure changes; it coagulates and becomes sticky. This sticky glue-like substance can clog mucous membranes and arteries leading to cellular toxicity.

Buying and consuming local honey can help with allergies.

Enjoy…

Ayurvedic Massage ~

Ayurvedic Massage ~

Let Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC help you eliminate toxins with The Secrets of Ayurvedic Massage.

An ayurvedic massage helps eliminate toxins through purification, strengthens the muscle tone, relaxes and rejuvenates the body. Also known as hard body massage, Ayurvedic massages are given using hands, elbows, and forearms.

Ayurvedic massage involving tapping, kneading, squeezing and traditional massage strokes is done by using essential oils to suit individual doshas. The style and intensity of massage depends on the individual’s need for balance and well being at the time.

An Ayurvedic therapist focuses on the “marma points”, which are similar to the pressure points in reflexology, acupuncture and acupressure.
