Ayurveda: Restore your Balance Naturally

Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine dating back several thousands of years with origins in India. Ayurveda principles are becoming more widely recognized and accepted by the mainstream population in the West. Renowned physician and author Deepak Chopra is one of its best known advocates. ‘Ayurveda’ roughly translates to "Knowledge of Life."

The concept behind Ayurveda is that life is intended to be lived in balance and harmony. When we expose ourselves to the excesses of any type (something typical in modern society) we shift away from that balance exposing ourselves to deficiencies that our body and mind is incapable of tolerating. This balance isn’t just about eating correctly. Ayurveda is about maintaining an overall balance in all aspects of our life – the time of day we eat, how we eat, sleep cycles, the biological clock, our living quarters, the people in our lives, and so forth.

We live in a fast-paced society where we are subjected to: Eating highly processed foods; eating on the go; and high levels of stress and pollutants. All of these factors can take a toll on our physical and psychological health. Even a small change can cause issues within our bodies setting off a domino effect that impair how our mind and body coordinates. The break in this “communication” can lead to a numerous afflictions and symptoms.

Ayurveda largely emphasizes on the mental realm. Many of the deficiencies that we suffer from such as physical ailments, mental stresses, and chemical imbalances often begin with the mind. Western medicine often separates the mind and body, which is troubling because they share a tangible link. One simply cannot function “normally” without the other.

The Doshas are the place where the mind and body meet to form their intricate and intimate connection. It is the place where our energies come together. There are three doshas, vata (wind), pitta (fire) and kapha (earth). All three doshas are present within all of us, but, each person has at least one dosha that is more dominant than the others. Those with dominant balanced vata tend to favor a thin frame, are always moving and are highly adaptable. A balanced pitta dominant person has a medium build, is competitive, intense and is optimistic. Kapha prevalent folks tend to have a fuller frame, are very laid back, slow to anger and nurturing.

According to Ayurveda, many imbalances tend to start or originate within the mind, such as with negative emotions, they can also originate within the body which in turn affects the mind. Regardless of the source however, this imbalance affects the doshas creating problems that surface within us.

If you understand your body type and your dosha matrix, you’re more readily able to fix any imbalances and reduce symptoms from conditions that you suffering from.

An imbalance causes the negative traits of the doshas to emerge. Imbalanced vata is connected to fear and anxiety. Uneven pitta dosha is linked to hate and an excessive temper. People experiencing an imbalanced kapha dosha are subject to rapid weight gain, oily skin, energy reduction and mental exhaustion.

Imbalances can often be corrected through proper diet and detoxification. Diet and gentle cleansing ensure that your body functions as optimally as it should. Western medicine is finally coming to recognize the relationship between the immune system, overall diet and the gastro-intestinal system or the "gut." This is a connection that Ayurveda recognized thousands of years ago.

Modern society has introduced processed food items and environmental pollutions that contain chemicals that our bodies don’t readily process; these chemicals are stored within our body and can accumulate as toxins. These toxins can pass through the membrane of our GI tract into our circulatory system. An accumulation throughout the body can reduce physiological functions to the point of impairing one’s body and immune system. The symptoms may remain hidden for years, but, when they are revealed, they can appear as the following:

*   Cardiac Issues
*   Respiratory Problems
*   Circulatory Dysfunction
*   Organ Impairment (slow metabolism caused by poor liver functionality, water retention due to renal issues, etc)
