Unfortunately, in modern times we too often see the sick succumbing to the western medicine cycle. While trying to use pharmaceuticals and chemicals to treat illnesses and ailments, patients often become mentally and physically addicted to their treatments, which often times only diminish symptoms and do little to quell the spread and development of disease. More and more we see people striving for medical treatments based upon those of our ancestors that rely not on chemicals, but on natural remedies, and reading potent body signs to determine the causes of sickness and disease, including migraines and weight gain. Below, we’ll take a look at one of these ancient medical practices, Ayurveda.
Today, modern science and medicine have been inextricably linked the wellness of mind and body. However, the philosophy of mind and body interconnectedness had been implement thousands of years before in the ideas of India’s wisest sages in what is known as Ayurveda. Ayurveda’s two main tenants are a simple, yet powerful, duo of sound medical advice. The first is that the mind and body are absolutely connected when it comes to overall health and the second, that the mind itself is the most powerful tool we possess to heal the body. Ayurveda emphasizes meditation as a form of bringing inner quiet to the mind, and restoring balance to the body, resulting in overall better health benefits.
However, meditation is only one of Ayurveda’s practices for a better attachment to personal wellness. Ayurveda advocates a flavorful diet, to fight weight gain, as well as an abundant night’s sleep to refresh the mind, and help in fighting migraines and other stress related ailments. The real key to practicing Ayurveda as a wellness practice comes in allowing the universe to take shape as it should and not struggling against it, in this way we can better flow and allow our personal energies to stay in abundance.
