How Ayurveda can change your life (for better!)
Ayurvedic medicine is traditional and, despite many people may imagine, has nothing religious or mystical involved in it. It could change a life.
Ayurveda is not like ordinary Western medicine. Instead of healing diseases, it is based on the principle of prevention, with a priority of adopting healthy habits of life and mindfullness.
In short, Ayurveda is a mind-body connection system for good health. The meaning of the word itself proves this:
Ayur = life
Veda = knowledge
There are two principles that sustain that idea and everything related to Ayurveda:
- Mind and body are inseparably connected
- Nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind
But it doesn’t work the same way for everyone. Each personality is linked to a type of organism, with special characteristics and different needs regarding nutrition, for example. Those are the doshas.
However, Ayurveda, though essentially prophylactic, is also a way of restoring what has already been unbalanced. That means that it is a way against degenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis, cancer, digestive issues and respiratory problems.
Adopting Ayurveda can be great for adults and children. It is also one of the most successful ways to lead a healthier, calmer, and even (why not?) happier pregnancy.
The Ayurvedic approach is, above all, a way of balancing body and mind with some simple practices such as eating well, sleeping well, practicing physical activities and, most important, not getting off the track with big things or small ones.
