Excerpt From The Book

The Need for Healing

Ayurveda is the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature. It is an ancient natural wisdom of health and healing, a science of life.

The aims and objectives of this science are to maintain the health of a healthy person and to heal the disease of an unhealthy person.

Both prevention (maintenance of good health) and healing are carried out by entirely natural means. According to Ayurveda, health is a perfect state of balance.

The body’s three fundamental energies, or doshas (Vata, pitta, Kapha), and an equally vital balance among body, mind, and the soul or consciousness.

Ayurveda is a profound science of living that encompasses the whole of life and relates the life of the individual to the life of the universe.

It is a holistic system of healing in the truest sense. Body and consciousness are in constant interaction and relationship with other people and the environment.

In working to create health, Ayurveda takes into consideration these different levels of life and their interconnectedness.

As a science of self-healing, Ayurveda encompasses diet and nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, rest and relaxation, meditation, breathing exercises.

And medicinal herbs, along with cleansing and rejuvenation programs for healing body, mind, and spirit. Numerous adjunct therapies such as sound, color, and aromatherapy may also be employed.

The purpose of this book is to acquaint you with these natural methods, so you can make the In lifestyle choices and learn the self-healing modalities.

Those are right for you in order to T create, maintain, or restore health and balance. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that means “the science of life and longevity.

” According to this science, every individual is both a creation of cosmic energies and a unique h phenomenon, a unique personality.

Ayurveda teaches that we all have a constitution, which is our individual psychobiological makeup. From the moment of conception, this individual constitution is created by the universal energies of Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.

FOOD AND DIET

We have already touched on the effects of food on the doshas, and chapter 8 will discuss this important topic in-depth, so we won’t go into it at length here.

The principle is simply that eating the right kinds of food for your prakruti maintains vitality and balance while eating the wrong kinds creates an imbalance in the doshas, the first step in the genesis of disease.

cors Eating spicy food or sour or citrus fruit and drinking alcohol all increase heat and the acidity in the body, something a pitta person cannot afford. For a Vata individual, dried ree fruits, beans (including garbanzo, pinto, and aduki) are hard to digest and will provoke thy Vata.

Raw salads, which are cold and astringent, will likewise increase vata. For a kapha individual, dairy products, cold drinks, and fatty fried foods definitely add to kapha. So a vata person eating a vatagenic diet, a pitta person eating a pitta-provoking diet, and a kapha person eating kapha-aggravating food are definitely creating imbalance and sowing the seeds for ill health.
