7 Benefits of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian medical system that dates back over 3,000 years. The Sanskrit terms ayur (life) and veda (science) are combined to form the term Ayurveda (science or knowledge). As a result, Ayurveda means “knowledge of creation.” “Ayurveda recommends such lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to restore a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and environment, based on the premise that illness is caused by an imbalance or tension in a person’s consciousness.”- Says Dr. Kalpesh who is one of the best Navi Mumbai based ayurvedic doctor. Following are the 7 major benefits of Ayurveda as stated by Dr. Kalpesh. 1. Ensuring Good Health (Preventive Care)  

Too much of western medicine focuses on disease treatment. Though western medicine seeks to catch up to the ancient wisdom of preventive treatment, Ayurvedic medicine has provided practitioners with the resources to preserve health and escape disease for thousands of years.  

Ayurveda preserve the balance within ourselves that promotes good health by tailoring our diets and lifestyles to our individual constitutions. According to the Ayurvedic doctors, the easiest way to avoid illness in the first place is to remain healthy. 

2. Beautiful Skin  

Beautiful skin is good skin. We may feel forced to use more harsh chemicals to help mask the harm done to our skin when we use the harsh chemicals used in so many commercial skin care items.  

It’s also preferable to take care of our skin by first learning about it. Once you know your skin type, whether it’s dry vata, sensitive pitta, or oily kapha, you will figure out which ancient, natural skin treatments can better balance these qualities and promote good, beautiful skin. Furthermore, our skin will respond to these Ayurvedic practices by naturally balancing itself as the entire body is eased into greater balance and wellness by adopting a balanced diet and a balancing lifestyle.  

3. Higher levels of concentration  

It is easy to become overwhelmed in our modern world, with the pace of travel, the overload of knowledge, and the constant, mechanical noise that pervades our lives, and to find our minds disquieted and anxious. When we take the time to slow down and get to know and understand our bodies and how their natural constitutions need balance, our minds follow suit.  

Our minds are soothed by a balanced diet and lifestyle, which allows for smoother, more concentrated concentration. Mental balance is just as important as physical balance, and Ayurvedic practices are designed to help people achieve both.  

4. Stress Reduction  

We worry in the same way that our minds lose concentration. Working under duress, as the majority of us do, aggravates vata and induces stress. The joints are the first to be affected by vata imbalance, and isn’t it true that we always find high stress levels by sore, clenched jaws? Ayurveda relieves stress by diet and lifestyle. These strategies help to stabilize vata and relax pitta.  

5. Energy Rejuvenation  

It is all too common in this world to skip sleep while working on a deadline, to eat foods that are out of season, or to stay up too late at night. We all do things that cause our bodies and minds to be out of control, resulting in sluggishness and lethargy.  

In the short term, coffee and other stimulants can help, but Ayurveda takes a holistic, long-term approach to reviving energy. We will decide how to balance ourselves once we recognize our natural dosha, or constitution. A vata person who engages in vata operation is vata-overloaded, and could profit from more pitta and kahpa elements to balance this excess vata.  

6. Relaxation  

Maintaining healthy skin and hair, preventing stress, and revitalizing energy all involve grounding and calming vata styles. It’s all too easy to get out of sorts, and being conscious of our body’s natural constitution will help us regain the equilibrium that leads to relaxation. Relaxation makes you feel safe and content with your mind and body, so it’s a good indicator of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.  

Body massage, or abhyanga, is also beneficial for relaxation. Whether self-massage or therapeutic massage are used, these techniques, particularly when combined with Ayurvedic oils and various heat sources, aid in the removal of excess vata, which causes stress.  

7. Anti-Aging  

Have you ever met anyone who seemed to be older than their actual age? We claim they led a hard life because they were under a lot of stress and had a lot of physical, emotional, and spiritual problems. The signs of our wellbeing are visible on our faces.  

We alleviate the pressures and anxieties that wear out our bodies by balancing doshas and maintaining a balanced relationship between vata, pitta, and kapha. Ayurvedic medicine not only promotes a strong, youthful body, but it also promotes a vivid, dynamic mind, even as we grow older. Safe, balanced bodies and minds are needed for the complex expression of life.  

We can preserve and encourage the balance that is so important to the complex expression of life by being conscious of what we eat, how we live, and how we manage stress. These seven advantages, as well as many others, can be realized in our lives by daily Ayurvedic practice.
