Ayurveda and Pineapple….

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves the powerful digestive enzymes found in Pineapple such as bromelian. Eat this wonderful fruit to help enhance sluggish or weak digestion.

Pineapple is useful in both indigestion and loss of appetite. It’s juicyness hydrates you as well! Pineapple clears heat and replenishes your strength, energy levels and is helpful with diarrhea, bronchitis, sinusitis and arthritis.

Use Pineapple with any meal….layer slices on ham prior to baking, pineapple grilled skewers, on top of a burger or chicken sandwich, add to your salsa or guacamole – the digestive properties of pineapple combine well with many foods. But DON’T mix pineapple with dairy or yogurt as this combination clogs the channels.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda, also known as Ayurvedic Medicine, is the traditional medicine of India, which originated there over 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda emphasizes re-establishing balance in the body through diet, lifestyle, exercise, and body cleansing, and on the health of the mind, body, and spirit.

In North America, Ayurveda is considered a form of alternative medicine. Like traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is a whole medical system, meaning that it is based on theories of health and illness and on methods of preventing and treating health conditions.

Because of its growing popularity, Ayurvedic treatments, particularly at spas and salons, are increasingly being performed by people who have not received formal training in Ayurveda. That’s why if you are interested in consulting with an Ayurvedic practitioner, it is important to seek a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner and learn about their training.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC staff are all certified and proud graduates of Kerala Ayurveda Academy with roots from India as well as Professional Members of National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA).

We look forward to working with you….either virtually or in our office as of June 8 reopening date!

Oh how we love garlic and it’s importance as an medicinal herb. It is antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral.

It is seen as a preventive measure for colds and flu and will offer natural support to the immune system. Through the lens of Ayurveda, garlic kindles agni (digestive fires), destroys natural toxins, supports the lungs and clears excess kapha. (Spring is Kapha season)

Share in the comments below how you use garlic in your diet.

Celebrating International Nurse’s Day: Nominate your Favorite Cape Ann Nurses

Today is International Nurses Day, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.

Healing¬†Through Cleanliness: Infection Prevention and Control is an essential part of today‚Äôs healthcare. Florence Nightingale can be credited for this important practice. Her¬†philosophy of cleanliness and sanitation in order to prevent infection in hospitalized patients began during the Crimean War and has had a lasting and major impact on infection control in hospitals to this day. Nightingale’s approach to health care was holistic, and she also emphasized nutrition as a way of improving or preventing infection. She is credited as the founder of holistic nursing, and she also stressed ‘evidence-based’ practice.¬†

Infection Prevention and Control. Many of today’s procedures for preventing hospital acquired infections (HAI’s) include standard, contact, droplet, airborne and universal precautions. Each precaution has specific guidelines, policy and protocols. Florence Nightingale spoke of these as the means for preventing infection control in the 1850’s –

  • Clean hands,
  • Clean environment,
  • Sanitizing bedrails and doorknobs,
  • Sterilizing hospital equipment before and after patient care.

Florence Nightingale on infection control –¬†“Every nurse ought to be careful to wash her hands very frequently during the day. If her face too, so much the better.” (1)

Many healthcare specialists today cite hand washing as the single most important method for preventing the transmission of disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stresses the importance of  hand washing to aid in the prevention of disease, especially at this time of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. (Hand washing/in Spanish). Teaching children to wash hands properly (with soap and water for 20 minutes) can lead to a life-long practice of good hand hygiene. Clean Hand Campaign offers teaching materials. 

 

Key Times to Wash Hands from the CDC:

You can help yourself and your loved ones stay healthy by washing your hands often, especially during these key times when you are likely to get and spread germs:

  • Before, during, and after preparing food
  • Before eating food
  • Before and after caring for someone at home who is sick with vomiting or diarrhea
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound
  • After using the toilet
  • After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
  • After handling pet food or pet treats
  • After touching garbage

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Be happy.
