October, Ayurveda Awareness Month

October, Ayurveda Awareness Month

Ayurveda is a natural system of health and wellbeing and the sister-science to yoga. It originated in India thousands of years ago.

As a Complementary and Alternative Medicine Ayurveda can support your health needs in various ways. Ayurveda uses diet, herbal remedies, lifestyle tools and body therapies to establish health in body and mind.

Like Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is based on the five elements of nature. They are earth, air, fire, water and ether. According to Ayurveda, these elements are present in our environment around us as well as within us.

Good health is a state of balance of these five elements. Maintaining balance is the key and that involves many things. Your diet, lifestyle, relationships and habitat are all factors which can affect your natural state of balance. If you know your body type you can create a healthy lifestyle and greater well being.

Discover Your Body Type
In Ayurveda the five elements are organized into three fundamental principles called doshas. The three doshas are vata dosha, pitta dosha and kapha dosha. Each of us are composed of some combination of these three doshas.

Doshas govern the various processes of the body and mind. They create your uniqueness. With some knowledge of the doshas you can begin to track your state of health or your level of balance. Maintain a balance of the doshas to maintain health and prevent future illness from occurring.

Six Taste Spice Mix ~

Six Taste Spice Mix ~

Fall is Vata season through the lens of Ayurveda.

It is a time to eat warm grounding foods and to have all six tastes represented at each meal:

Sweet
Sour
Salty
Bitter
Pungent
Astringent

This means to focus on foods that are naturally in season at this time of year!

Sweet fall foods include pumpkin, squashes, root vegetables, whole grains (quinoa and amaranth are the most warming), pears, persimmons, apples, whole milk dairy and fresh dates or figs. Cook your squashes and your roots.

Salty fall foods are most important for the person who deals with a dry/cold vata imbalance. Water follows salt so salt in this context is meant to hydrate – specifically good salt: Celtic sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, Fleur de sel, etc. Salts that are not bleached or processed but are whole – and balanced by minerals that naturally occur alongside sodium in the earth. Salt is particularly warm and unctuous (lubricating) when taken in moderate amounts.

Sour fall foods include lemons, whole milk yogurt, apple cider vinegar, and naturally fermented foods like raw sauerkraut.

Check out our Six Taste Mix mix and it’s benefits:

• Improve Appetite & Digestion
• Promote Good Heart & Brain Health
• Improve Circulation
• Restore Gut Health
• Energize Food

Use it in cooking, sprinkle on salads or garnish on cooked food.
Organic Cumin, Organic Coriander, Organic Turmeric, Organic Fennel, Organic Cinnamon, Sea salt, Green Mango Powder, Organic Fenugreek, Organic Ginger, Organic Cayenne.

Nasya Oil ~

Nasya Oil ~

The benefits of Nasya Oil….

The nose is the direct route to the brain and also the doorway to consciousness. It is the entrance for prana, the life force, which comes into the body through the breath. Healthy uncongested breathing is important to ensure proper flow of prana throughout the head and body. When an excess of bodily fluids accumulates in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas, it is best eliminated through the nose. Administration of herbally infused oil, or nasya, helps facilitate this cleansing process. Nasya Oil soothes and protects the nasal passage while nourishing the tissues.

Daily nasal lubrication helps to:
• release tension in the head
• relieve accumulated stress
• improve quality of voice
• strengthen vision
• promote mental clarity

Classically, nasya oil is part of a daily routine for this very reason.
Adding this to your daily routine takes no more than a minute and is as simple as placing five drops of the oil in each nostril every morning. You will experience an immediate heightened sense of clarity and freshness.

Fresh Air ~

Fresh Air ~

Are you held up inside most of the day working? Do you eat lunch at your desk or in the lunch room/break room?

Holed up in an office all day you can sometimes forget what time it is. Sometimes the only light that shines on your face is the glare of a computer monitor or florescent lights.

Make sure you take some time for fresh air and sunshine. It’s healing, balancing, and grounding to get outside and back to nature, even for a little bit.

So start today – get outside, look up and breathe!

Summer heat = inflammation

Summer heat = inflammation

Summer is Pitta season through the lens of Ayurveda – which means fire, heat, inflammation.

It’s important to stay cool, both inside and out, in mind and body.

Start today with learning to let go, it’s not important to try and control everything as it will only create more heat.

Cool off/Chill out:

Take a tablespoon of aloe vera gel (not juice) as a Pitta tonic (heat reducing) every day to quell your fire. Do abhyanga (self oil massage) with coconut oil once a week (or more). To really quell fanning flames, consider coating your scalp (hair included) with coconut oil, wrapping it in a towel or even plastic wrap (you will look so pretty LOL) for bed. When you wake up, wash it out with shampoo and not only will your hair feel great, but you should notice less burning in the mind and body as well.

Give it a try and cool out with Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC
