How to stay healthy with Ayurveda can be as simple as being aware of what your body tells you. Your body has a natural detoxification system that is governed by the liver, skin, lungs, kidneys and the colon, which work together to eliminate toxins. However, your system can become overloaded from an intake of toxins, from the environment via breathing, and ingestion from foods and sugar. When your body is overloaded, it will start to display signs and symptoms such as indigestion, bloated belly, constipation, frequent colds, skin problems, low immunity, aching, lethargy, fatigued mind and low energy levels. Your mind can also become overloaded through stress, anxiety and poor sleep.
To get your body back into balance you don’t need to go through a major fasting cleanse. Start by eliminating all processed foods from your diet. Eat fresh and natural foods, never skip your meals and make sure you eat when you feel hungry. If you find it difficult to get back on track, you might want to invest in a healthy Ayurveda Consultation. My mission is to inspire you to live a healthier life, and help you to improve your condition of total health. You might be interested in knowing more about Ayurveda foods and how to cook quick and easy meals, or maybe you simply need time off to yourself, stretch in a Yoga class or join a Retreat where you can lean back and enjoy being taking care off. If you want to go deeper, I offer a complete Ayurveda Health Consultation where we discuss any health issues you might have.
Staying healthy with Ayurveda is simple. Once you get to know about the different spices, pulses and natural foods, you can easily make a quick meal back home. Once you know your body type, also known as dosha in Ayurveda, you can easily make few and simple changes and slowly begin to understand how your dosha functions. Deep down your body knows what is best for you. The mind is the tricky part, and always tries to push the body to the limit. This is why we see more and more people who end up with major stress symptoms, emotional eating, anxiety, injuries in Yoga or troubles sleeping. Ayurveda teaches us to slow down and nurture the body with healing foods and a proper lifestyle routine. Staying healthy on the inside is related on what you take in – food, work, family, relationships. It is all a part of your health. If things feel blurry or you find it hard to stay focused it might be time for you to take a small break. You can make your health and well-being your number one priority. Respect and love your body and invest in your health.
I hope to see you on the mat!
Stay happy and healthy,
