Ayurveda has been considered one of the most effective medical systems that work on the root cause of illnesses. However, there is a misconception that Ayurveda only treats the patients. Whereas, the Ayurveda medical system tells the right way to lead a healthy life with no unrealistic changes. Almost all changes you would require to make are doable and probably won’t hurt your pockets too.
Here are some of the essential Ayurveda tips for a healthy lifestyle. You must try to follow all of these by one because if you try to make all changes in one go you won’t be able to adopt these changes in the long run.
Meditation helps to meet yourself in the present. We all usually either live in the future or the present. Quite less is the population of people who are living in the present. Believe us, they are the happiest and calmest ones on the Earth.
Why? Because they do not regret anything from the past and do not bother about the future.
You can also achieve the same happiness by practicing meditation & introspection. It will not only let you meet yourself. It will improve your concentration levels and let you focus on the things that matter in your present time.
Consequently, you will develop a more sorted and calm personality that will keep many stress-related diseases and neurological disorders away from you.
In this fast-moving lifestyle where everybody keeps looking for quick foods, you need to put a full stop to these fast foods and start making your meals.
Cut out your frequent dine-ins or takeaways and pay attention to the nutrition you need. Make sure you eat a balanced diet to fulfill all your micro and macronutrient requirements.
According to many Ayurdevic doctors, up to the age of 30 people can treat most of their health conditions by just following the right diet.
Oil pulling could be a new term for many readers but it is one of the best detoxifying methods for your mouth and entire body.
Take any essential oils such as coconut oil and swirl it for 10-15 minutes in your mouth like a mouthwash. After that, spit it out and rinse your mouth with water.
It will kill all your mouth bacteria and reduce bad breath. Most probably, it can reduce the chances of cavity & inflammation. Also, it improves your gum health.
Many people suggest fancy and extra expensive oils for oil pulling. However, mere coconut oil will serve the purpose.
Deep breathing detoxifies the carbon dioxide-filled lungs and improves the oxygen intake giving more energy to your body. It also massages your internal organs and improves digestion by metabolism stimulation. Also, it encourages peristalsis.
It is quite important to have regular detoxification of the body. If 5-7 minutes of breathing exercises can help you to do so, there is no better alternative you will ever get.
Often your taste buds change. Especially when you are on medication. This usually happens due to the accumulated plaque on the tongue. It removes bacteria from your tongue and maintains daily oral hygiene. Thus, it is vital to clean your tongue for improvement.
Make sure you do not buy a harsh tongue scraper. Press it gently on your tongue and scrape it 4-5 times every day in the morning after brush and oil pulling.
In case you do not know, sweating is the largest organ detoxification method. That is why it is always said that your sweat glands should stay active and you must sweat a lot purposely.
It does not mean you have to roam around on sunny days. Steam bath and regular gyming or workout are fair enough to serve the purpose.
Do not worry, you do not need to go to the spa every week or so.
You can do it on your own before sleeping every night. Take any essential oil like coconut oil (heat it properly), and gently massage your entire body. Give more pressure on body joints and nerves.
Regular body massage improves your blood circulation and keeps your body active and flexible. Also, according to a study conducted by the National Institute of Health in 2009, abdominal massage improves bowel movement and reduces constipation.
According to the Ayurvedic belief, the digestive fire is the peak when the sun is at its highest point (around 12 noon to 1 pm). However, it does not mean you have to have all meals in that time window. It is just to keep your breakfasts and dinners lighter than your lunch.
Surely, your digestive system will improve.
First of all, we request you to be patient to feel the visible changes in your health. Ayurveda works on your root causes which is why it takes time to show changes in the body. If you think you do oil pulling for a day and your body will feel detoxified, it won’t happen. You will have to give time to Ayurveda tips to make your life healthier.
