The philosophy of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a traditional, holistic healing process that evolved for more than 200 years. The healing method is still been widely used by Sri Lankan people and hundreds of thousands of people are seeking the healing effect of Ayurveda every day. The word “Ayurveda” is a combination of 2 words Ayur+veda, literally means wisdom or life science. According to the Ayurvedic view, the human being consists of the four components body, sense organs, mind and soul.

The three doshas

According to Ayurveda, the three doshas are the basic control and regulation systems of the human body:

  1. Vata (nerve energy for activity and movement)
  2. Pitta (substance-degrading fire energy)
  3. Kapha (nutrient-building energy)

The relationship between the proportions of Vata, Pitta and Kapha determines the constitution of a person. The composition of the three doshas determines your strengths, weaknesses and susceptibility to illness.

According to Ayurveda, diseases are defined as a disharmony of the inner balance. They always begin when the natural state of health (Prakriti) comes into contact with a disease-causing element. Then the Dosha structure gets out of balance and changes the basic inner constitution. The consequences are complaints and illnesses – both physical and psychological.

How to be healthy with Ayurveda

Maintaining a balanced lifestyle is the best way of alienating infectious diseases from you. This includes healthy sleep, well-functioning digestive system, and breathing clean air. Regular Yoga practice, meditation sessions, happy life and another form of spiritual development also help you to develop a strong immune system.

Ayurvedic cleansing and detoxication using herbal applications and massages help you to eliminate impurities from the body, and enhances the metabolic processes and ensure that your energies can circulate freely in the body.

Eating healthy food

Having a balanced diet is one of the main priorities of the Ayurveda healing system and it dramatically increases your chances to maintain a healthy life.

Tips to kill germs with Ayurveda

Turmeric: Turmeric powder and water make an effective disinfectant.

The smoke keeps nasty germs away from you and your loved ones and even helps in the fight against mosquitoes and other insects.” According to the team.

Rest and sound sleep are important to be healthy

According to the medical team, the stress is more danger to our immune system than viruses and bacteria. You cannot escape the enormous speed of life, but you can create an effective counterpoint to the hectic pace of everyday life with targeted rest breaks. Sufficient sleep is particularly important because it is the only way to recharge ourselves. In Ayurveda, sleep is understood as the “diet of the mind”. Consequently, regular, healthy sleep is essential for your mental wellbeing. On average, people need 6 to 9 hours of sleep a day.

Revitalizing mind and body with a good morning routine

A comprehensive Ayurveda morning routine gives you the strength to carry your daily activities with vigour. To start the day full of energy, you should get up before 6 a.m. at best. And drink at least one glass of hot water. Enriched with honey, lemon or ginger this boosts your metabolism. To bring body and mind into harmony, do a few yoga exercises in the morning. Even small rituals can have vitalizing effects!

Exercise keeps your immune system fit

Many scientific studies confirm what Ayurveda healing system has been preaching for millennia: regular physical activity helps to build muscles and strength, reduces body fat, improves digestion and sleep, and strengthens the immune system. It doesn’t have to be a marathon right away: Research has shown that especially fast walking or other types of movement, in which you do not exhaust yourself, have an effect on the extension of a healthy life.

Yoga helps you minimize the impact of chronic illnesses

Yoga can be an essential part of a healthy and happy life. On a physical level, yoga promotes your mobility and causes your muscles and joints to stretch. Numerous studies have now proven the positive effect that yoga has on chronic ailments such as back pain and migraines. In addition to physical success, yoga ensures relaxation, concentration and focus on yourself thanks to meditative elements. So, get out the yoga mat and off you go!

Healthy life with Ayurveda

Regular detoxification also plays an important role in Ayurveda – not only in the event of illness. The body frees itself naturally from accumulated stress and gains new vitality and lightness. Depending on your constitution, the Ayurveda consultants recommend different Ayurveda cures for this purpose: Some cures are made with hot water, ginger tea and a little rice broth, while light soup cures contain three small, warm meals a day. It is always important that the organism can come to rest.
