Bedtime Routine~

Bedtime Routine~

How’s your sleep? Do you have a bedtime routine that is helping or hurting you from a good nights rest?

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to embrace an Ayurvedic Bedtime Routine by being in bed by 10pm.
To make that happen:

Turn off the TV at least an hour before bed.

Resist online anything—shopping, Twitter, Facebook, news gathering, or working.

Use that extra hour for self-reflection, journaling, restorative yoga, or meditation.

Treat yourself to a foot massage. Rub lavender-scented warm sesame oil on your feet and pull on a pair of old socks.

Put on your favorite deep relaxation CD or yoga nidra CD (earlier in the day) to help you practice resting and to take the edge off the nervous system. Doing yoga nidra too close to bedtime could refresh your energy instead of moving you into deep sleep.

Make yourself some warm milk laced with special sleep-inducing herbs. Pour 4 to 6 ounces of milk (organic) into a saucepan, along with a pinch or two of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and saffron, and a teaspoon of ghee, and simmer for about three minutes. Remove from the heat and let set for a minute or so. Add raw honey to taste—either more than or less than a teaspoon. Bottoms up!

Lights out

Squash Pancakes ~

Looking for something to try for lunch or dinner? Fall is a perfect time of year to eat root veggies. So let’s get creative and bring a breakfast staple into the day

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves Squash Pancakes as they are easy to make help us to stay balanced in the dryness of Fall and Winter.

Squash Pancake
Prep: 20 min
Cooking time: 5 min
Cooking Tip: Cook the pancake on a cast iron pan – it won’t stick.

Ingredients:
1 c rice flour
1/4 c cream of rice
1 medium piece of squash
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 c of grated coconut
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 to 1 c of water
2 tbsp of chopped cilantro

Wash the squash and grate it.
In a large mixing bowl mix rice, cream of rice, grated squash, grated coconut, cilantro, salt and 1 tbsp oil. Mix all the ingredients very well. Add water to make a thick batter. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Heat a cast-iron skillet or non-stick frying pan. With your hands, take some batter and place it on the pan. With repeated strokes, using your fingers spread the batter into 3/4 cm thick round pancake. Cook for two minutes. Flip the pancake over and cook for another three minutes.

Serve warm…add some chutney on top or eat as is and add some warm arugula or spinach as a side. Enjoy!

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.

Chakra’s and your health ~

Chakra’s and your health ~

 

Ayurveda Wellness Healing is asked a lot how ones Chakra’s can effect their well being.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, or vortex, and it refers to each of the seven energy centers of which our consciousness, our energy system, is composed.

Around each human being there is an energy field known as the aura. It usually extends 10-15cm out from the physical body. Some people can see the aura with all its colours, others can see a faint light, some cannot see anything at all, but this does not matter. The colours in our aura change depending on our state of health or our mood. The colour and energy of the aura is produced by the chakras. The chakras are the seven energy centres in our etheric body. They are wheels of bright colour which spin totally in balance when we are healthy and happy. When we are in bad health or feeling distressed, the chakras spin out of balance and the colours are not so bright. Each chakra is related to a particular colour. It needs to produce this colour for its energy field and it needs to spin in balance.

Base = Red
The Base or Root Chakra is associated with the color red. This chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings. Focusing one’s attention on the color of a cherry popsicle or a juicy red apple can help bring our energetic body “down to earth” and in alignment with our physical body when we find ourselves energetically fleeting or in other words…..”spacing off.”

Physical Location – base of the spine
Physical dysfunctions associated with base chakra – lower back pain, sciatica, varicose veins, rectal tumors, depression, immune related disorders
Mental/Emotional Issues – survival, self esteem, social order, security, family
Information stored in base chakra – familial beliefs, superstitions, loyalty, instincts, physical pleasure or pain, touch
Area of Body Governed – spinal column, kidneys, legs, feet, rectum, immune system

Total Eclipse

Total Eclipse

Total Eclipse of the Sun…best on an empty stomach and an open mind

For those of us living in the United States we will feel this total eclipse of the sun the most. So how do we take advantage of healing ourselves and moving forward in a calm, peaceful and grateful existence? Look no further…it’s in your hearts.

Listen to your heart. Let the awakening happen. Give yourself value and enjoy being alive at this pivotal junction in human history.

One or two hours before the eclipse, stop eating so that the food gets digested well and you will have an empty stomach.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you recite a mantra during the eclipse on an empty stomach (for maximum results) but make sure you set the right intention before doing so. If you do not have a Mantra or don’t know what a Mantra is, try reciting the one below:

Aum hram hrim hraum sah suryaya namah
(aauuum Hraaam Hreem Hraaaum Saaah Suuureeeyaaya Naaamaha)

To keep your heart and mind open try reciting this mantra every morning for 5 minutes and let us know how you’re doing.

*Reminder to not look at the eclipse, permanent eye damage will result.
