Beat the Bloat ~

Beat the Bloat ~

It’s Yoga Wednesday at Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC…knees to chest pose is a great “Beat the Bloat” pose. Just what we all need.

It’s easy to overindulge, and feel bloated and puffy after a big meal. The main cause? Not-so-savory reasons like gas and acid reflux. Instead of popping a Tums and flopping back on the couch, think about trying a natural cure.

You’ll want to do this simple stretch-also known as the wind-relieving pose-to gain relief from bloating and gas pains.

How do it:
Lie down, relax and inhale, placing your hands on your knees. Exhale, and hug your knees to your chest. Rock your knees from side to side to maximize the stretch. Stay for five to ten breaths, and release your knees. Repeat this move a few more times.

Modification: Bring your knees as far as it is comfortable. To vary the stretch, you can do one side at a time. Leaving your left leg extended, bring up your right knee and hold it for five more breaths. Then, switch to the other side.

The love of Cheese ~

The love of Cheese ~

Cheese and Food Combining…

Our digestive system was not designed to handle non-stop large, heavy, complex meals. The western eating habits place continual stress on the digestive system with inadequate “down-time” for the system to recuperate. When we over eat, eat too heavy or snack in-between meals we overwork the system causeing log-jams downstream resulting in undigested food that putrefies and ferments, leading to gas, bloating and potential accumulation of “ama” (toxins) from food and unprocessed emotions.

Though the lens of Ayurveda – food combining plays a big part in our digestion.

Cheese, which is cold, heavy and mucus forming, is best eaten alone or with vegetables. Many of the western serving methods (i.e., cheese and crackers; cheese and apples; macaroni and cheese, cheese with sandwiches, cheese pizza, etc.) are very difficult to digest.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves cheese sprinkled with a bit of black pepper.

Blooming Lotus ~

Blooming Lotus ~

Without the mud the lotus would not bloom….

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to start your daily meditation practice or deepen your current practice.

Meditation is an essential tool for bringing a person’s mind back into balance and should be incorporated into everyone’s health regimen. There are varying types of #meditation available depending on a person’s prakruti (your base point) and depending on if a person’s mind is in a state of rajas, tamas, or sattva. For example, a kapha mind should be kept busy. Conversely, a vata mind should be quieted and kept still. A pitta mind should be calmed. So an appropriate meditation technique should be chosen based on a person’s manasa prakruti and what state it is in.

Your life will open up to new experiences as the lotus flower below opens to greet each new day.

Sounds daunting – but it does not have to be. Contact us for a consultation to determine your prakruti and state of mind at: info@ayurvedawellnesshealing.com
