Ayurveda is a proactive, co-creative, traditional medicine, based on entirely natural methods.
It does include natural remedies such as herbal products, but what is more, it contains DIET & LIFESTYLE tips too, which is part and parcel of a holistic solution to well-being.
Many of our modern-day health problems are often called “lifestyle-related disorders”, which means they have their origin in faulty or damaged lifestyles. It doesn’t mean you are doing anything wrong, but perhaps according to ayurveda you could do things more naturally. A damaged lifestyle is a lifestyle which is grinding at you, reducing your energy and resilience.
The truth is that our natural environment has changed a lot and will continue to change. Whilst our living environment has become more technical, artificial, digital and seems to have sped up, we are now FEELING more time-pressured, live in a world that has been concreted over and as we are prioritising for a huge number of vehicles, transportation and machines; Our bodies, however, still adhere to millions-of-years-old biological principles.
According to the natural healthcare system Ayurveda, you have a unique body type
made up of the five eastern elements: space, wind, fire, water and earth. You
embody a unique combination of these elements, forming your body bio-energies
of Vata, Pitta and Kapha which determine your healthcare requirements.
If your lifestyle choices are opposed to what you need for your unique balancing point, you will start to feel unwell and with symptoms, such as … sleep problems, anxiety and increased stress levels… or more. To improve your well-being, you can live more naturally, harmonising nature with your unique body requirements.
I believe natural processes should not be medicalized. I have developed a couple of online courses which teach you how you can balance natural processes with the natural methods of Ayurveda and Yoga and achieve better well-being. Take sleep for example, according to Ayurveda, insomnia is a disturbance in well-being; it is a symptom of the underlying problem: a body bio-energy imbalance. To re-balance these elements we can use several methods: diet, lifestyle, herbal supplements and external ayurvedic applications.
The truth is that your lifestyle choices have a direct impact on your body bio-energies of vata, pitta and kapha, which in turn determine your well-being.
