You are utilising the ancient art of Ayurveda if you have replaced your morning cup of coffee with warm lemon water, mouthwash with coconut oil pulling, and golden turmeric milk. Other Ayurvedic practises that are making an appearance in the morning routines of 21st-century wellness warriors include dry body brushing (to improve circulation and stimulate detoxification), tongue scraping at dawn (to remove buildup on the surface of your tongue), daily self-massage (to nourish your tissues and calm your mind), and, of course, yoga.
The comprehensive Indian health science known as Ayurveda, sometimes known as the “science of life,” has been around for around 5,000 years and is still going strong today. Two of the most popular D words among modern health enthusiasts are used by Ayurveda: digestion and detoxification.
Your “Agni,” or digestive fire, is considered by Ayurveda to be an indication of your general health. Even though acai smoothie bowls, raw juices, and salads are popular on social media, Ayurvedic adherents contend that cooked dishes like kitchari, a mung bean and rice stew, are simpler to stomach.
If you wish to learn more about Ayurveda, you also need to be familiar with the term dosha. Your emotional and physical makeup is influenced by the three doshas of Kapha (earth), vata (wind), and pitta (fire). Even though each person possesses all three, one typically predominates. Consequently, the secret is to balance them using particular diets, herbs and practices.
According to Vital Veda’s Dylan Smith, there are eleven Ayurvedic markers of optimum health, and if you’re not feeling them all, it’s time to take action.
“Ayurveda is about prevention, so when you start to notice symptoms, act before the disease progresses,” the doctor advises.
The 10 Ayurveda measures of health include:
- Food should be well digested if you want to feel light and invigorated afterwards.
- Good appetite: Appetite at mealtimes.
- Have no trouble dozing off when going to bed at night.
- Every morning “jumping” out of bed feeling awake.
- Regular operation of the five senses. Over the course of a lifetime, our senses shouldn’t or shouldn’t diminish much.
- Waste removal: Constipation every day before consuming any food or liquids. Additionally, women can eliminate sweat, pee, and menstrual blood comfortably and regularly.
- Neither overweight nor emaciated, with a healthy ratio of bone, muscle, and fat components.
- Maintaining natural power and immunity is important.
- The skin’s natural colour should be preserved.
- Mental tranquilly and contentment
