Reflexology ~

Reflexology ~

Reflexology and the many hidden benefits…

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress.

The theory behind reflexology is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. The pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health.

Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer.

Diet of the Mind

Diet of the Mind

#Ayurveda describes sleep as the “diet of the mind”.

Our bodies metabolize waste products mostly after 10:00pm and the immune system needs to revitalize itself between 11:00 pm and 2:00am, so it’s critical to be asleep during these hours.

Here are a few tips for a restful sleep:

* Be in bed by 10pm
* No electronics in the bedroom
* Avoid caffeine late in the day
* Try some deep breathing exercises before bed
* Take a warm bath
* Cooler bedrooms make for a better nights sleep

Contact Ayurveda Wellness Healing if you have difficulties falling asleep, wake during the night or sleep so heavy that it’s hard to wake up – as these are all signs of an imbalance. During a private consultation we can determine where the imbalance lies.

Daylight Savings ~

Daylight Savings ~

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves daylight savings time…it is a perfect time to enjoy the benefits of Ayurveda by rising before dawn. Yes, BEFORE dawn.

But don’t just “jump up” and out of bed to start your day, stop, find a quiet spot to mediate for 15 minutes.

Let this become your way of life and watch your life around you become calmer with positive vibes and energy.

Challenge yourself to start tomorrow. If not now, when?

Food Combining

Food Combining

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows the effects poor food combining can have on the digestive system. It can produce indigestion, fermentation and gas formation and if prolonged, can lead to toxemia and disease.

A few examples:
Eating raw and cooked foods together
Bananas and Milk
Berries and Dairy

Spices and herbs are often added in Ayurvedic cooking to help make foods more compatible or to ease undesirable effects.

One example: adding cooling cilantro to hot spicy food can help it to be digested.

Black Pepper

Black Pepper

Black Pepper = heat

Through the lens of Ayurveda, the heating and pungent properties of black pepper work to help metabolize food as it is digested in our system. The stimulating quality is also used to clear congestion in the respiratory system as well as other processes.

Choose organically grown black pepper associated with a fair trade cooperative is highly preferable to conventional pepper.

Black Pepper Aids Digestion through the lens of Ayurveda in rekindling agni, (digestive fire)

Black Pepper is an Antioxidant and helps in cold and flu remedies. Black pepper and honey is a traditional Ayurvedic approach to respiratory congestion, helping to expectorate and dry up mucus membranes (Frawley, 1986). In Western herbalism, it is used in antiseptic cold and flu preventatives like fire cider.

Pepper has cleansing and antioxidant properties, and helps to transport the benefits of any other herbs to the different parts of the body.

Black pepper is a warming spice and has a pungent taste. It is terrific for pacifying Kapha, and just a little bit helps pacify Vata. Black pepper should be used in moderation as it does increase Pitta.
