Our current hectic, busy lifestyle, irregular eating habits and incompatible diet choices during the day and the mental stress of work and home has made everyone vulnerable. When it gets out of hand, one starts showing signs of constant fatigue, whatever you are walking, talking or during office work, difficult concentrating, mood swings, brain fog and sleep disturbances. When you put them together and go to your GP, they will say you are suffering adrenal fatigue syndrome. This disease has different graduation of manifestation and can lead to various auto-immune ailments once it reaches a chronic state.
Those who suffer from it will know that our mainstream medicine has no real solution for this problem, apart from taking multi vitamins or vegetables or some exercise regime, Various complementary medicines also follow the same path of various anabolic regimes/vitamins or can put some kind of special diet, either keto diet or plant-based diet. But unfortunately, while they will help the client for a short period of time, the problem keeps getting more and more severe.
In ayurvedic medicine this disease is described as Ojas Kashya, meaning depletion of your immune essence. Ayurveda teaches us that each individual has 7 layers of tissue (known as Dhatus in Sanskrit), and these seven tissues get nourishment from the physical, mental and emotional activities and food we eat. The physical aspect of our immune essence gets nourishment from a compatible diet and lifestyle, as well as the compatible environment in which we live and work,
You may ask what this compatible means? This ancient science shares with all of us that even though we all look alike, with the same 2 legs, 2 ears or 2 nostrils, in fact, each individual’s body make up is unique. Our likings and disliking’s and reaction to different food and seasons is unique. This unique principle is known as your body type. As long as one is able to feed themselves and follow more compatible activities, one can provide more nourishment to their 7 dhatus and, as a result, build more immune essence. In same way, compatible mental and emotional activities also build more immune essence and keep the individual in more stable state at a mental level.
But once we start getting into erratic and incompatible activities and diet, such as eating more processed and take away foods, coffee, junk foods, carbonated drinks, excessive alcohol, drugs and marijuana on a regular basis or mental incompatibility such as wrong deeds, wrong actions, jealousy, hate, anger frustration and relationship problems, we will start burning our immune essence and make ourselves more vulnerable and this will affect our immune system. Immune essence is what keeps our immune system stable and intact, so each bodily system functions at their optimum strength.
According to Ayurveda, adrenal fatigue syndrome is nothing but a depletion of one’s immune essence. Thus, an ayurvedic practitioner will help those suffering from this ailment to rebuild their immune essence by incorporating a compatible plan that will include daily and seasonal regimes which will immediately start flushing the build-up of toxins in the body and will stop their further production and provide a comprehensive plan of compatible and incompatible foods. At the same time an ayurvedic practitioner will guide the individual in how to make each meal as medicine, so one can get best out of their food to build their immune essence.
There will also be a programme that will help the client learn to deal with the mental and emotional issues without being harsh on themselves, and there will be the support of ayurvedic herbs and formulations that will revive the bodily intelligence, thus returning the hormonal balance. At the same time, these ayurvedic practitioners will advise specific ayurvedic bodywork therapies that help to bring balance at physical, mental and emotional level by dislodging deep seated toxins.
This comprehensive ayurvedic approach gives the opportunity to those who suffer from adrenal fatigue issue not to sit and live with the problem but be able to get rid of the causes and live a more balanced life at each physical, mental and emotional level.
In an effort to live healthy and to achieve wellness it is good to see at last that every system of medicine, either it is our mainstream medical system or naturopathy, herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, integrated or functional medicine, everyone has started accepting the role of digestion in wellbeing.
Ayurveda, one of the oldest systems of medicine, has given the world this principle of digestion being the key to wellbeing thousands of years ago. Ayurvedic medicine clearly states that every disease starts in the gut. When one’s metabolism is compromised, the body will produce more toxins and less nutrients and those toxins ultimately become the core cause of ailments.
While everyone talks about digestion and its importance, still the majority of people suffer from gut problems, either it is simple digestion problems such as indigestion, gas, gastric reflux or serious ailments such as colitis, chron’s, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis or colon cancer.
The reason of this is very simple. While digestion has become a key component in a practitioner’s approach to health, most of the time their understanding revolves around advising the client to either eat salads or take fruits in the form of smoothies or dairy free, gluten free or nightshade free diets so these can improve digestion. Along with such advice, clients are always advised to take loads of probiotics or digestive enzymes or other vitamins or minerals to improve their digestive wellbeing. While such advice helps those clients, it is only for a short time and within few weeks or months they are back with same problems, and in some cases, even worse.
The reason for this is very clear. Ayurvedic science advises that digestion is not just about what you eat but how food is prepared, how foods are combined and how some foods are incompatible due to one’s body makeup, or season or time of day. For example, if one is advised not to eat gluten and only eats gluten free bread, one will notice the problem is still not solved. The reason is it is not gluten that is causing the problem but the yeast that make the bread incompatible in clients whose digestion is compromised. Hence, unless the client removes all yeast related products, it won’t help.
In the same way, how the food you are eating gets metabolised in our system is very important. Ayurvedic medicine advises one must consider the state of our digestive fire (known commonly as Agni). The principle of digestion in Ayurveda revolves around no matter how good our food or how balanced our diet. if one’s digestive fire is not in an optimum state, it will not metabolise the food properly and will produce more toxins and bring more disease. Ayurveda’s approach to digestive problems is more effective because the ayurvedic practitioner focuses on the digestive fire or what is know as the metabolic intelligence of the client.
Hence while one is able to understand the implication of digestion, you need to seek ayurvedic support to know what foods are good for your constitution and the season, what are compatible breakfast, lunch and dinner options, according to the state of your digestion function (or Agni), so whatever you are eating can provide more nutrition and less toxins (ama).
Ayurveda says digestion is your first and foremost step towards wellbeing. But unless you follow a complete approach to digestion and metabolism, total wellbeing can elude you. Ayurvedic practitioners while dealing with clients who come with digestive problems will create a well balanced programme for them where as a first step the client will be given certain daily and seasonal routines to eliminate the build up of toxins on a daily basis, The client will then be provided with comprehensive list of incompatible foods that are responsible for the build-up of toxins by compromising their digestion. The client will be also given most this important principle – how to make food as medicine. In this the client will be given options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, according to their imbalances and according to their Prakruti or bodily constitution.
Finally, the ayurvedic practitioner will advise some herbs or formulations that help to revive the intelligence of the digestion for their client by correcting the cause of their problem.
In the last 12 months the phrase “immune system” has become the most searched word on the internet. We all know the reason, as one virus has brought the world to a total standstill. The corona virus has shown us that inspite of having the best technology available and new inventions at our fingertips, we can still be made helpless, while the cost has reached hundreds of thousands lives and still counting.
On every platform, our doctors and scientist keep talking about the importance of our immune system and how to keep it in an optimum state but no one has given any advice on how to boost their immune systems. In this environment, people have chosen different options. Some have started eating on raw fruit and vegetables or only eating organic food. Many people have started drinking 4-5 litres of water will help to flush toxins and clean the immune system, while some has taken more vigorous exercise, either on a treadmill in gym or running 6-7 kilometres a day. While these all efforts are good, we have all seen they are short lived. Whenever the lockdown finishes, many of our old habits return.
The reason for this is that whatever action we take to throw of these old habits is fear based. The moment we see things are getting a bit better we tend to get back into our old habits, Majority of us still waiting for vaccine, while others feel that will never get the problem so don’t feel the need to take any positive action to build their immune system.
But ayurvedic medicine, one of the oldest system of healing, has shared with us all that living with awareness is the key to total wellbeing, and this wellbeing can be with us every day of our lives. This awareness is not just limited to eating organic, drinking 4-5 litres, running 6-7 kilometres or taking tons of vitamins to boost our immune system. This science teaches us that for our immune system to be in balance we need to look at our lifestyle, diet, the environment in which we live and work and are also aware of our thoughts, actions and duties, And this can’t be for limited period of time, This awareness should be part of everyone’s life all the time. Ayurvedic medicine is not just a “green” prescription, It is a complete science, a way of life that we are all able to adopt so we can make ourselves strong enough at every level that such viruses should not affect our health.
Ayurvedic medicine has shared with us that Corona virus is not the end but just the beginning and we should be ready to face such viruses more often in the future. This is because we keep making wrong choices by selecting incompatible foods and keep absorbing the same things, so our immune systems will be compromised and there will always be a chance we can get infected whenever some new virus comes along.
Therefore, it is very important that we all make an effort to boost our immune system, not just by taking multi-vitamins capsules or Omega 3 or B12 shots, but we must make a complete approach to our wellbeing by enhancing our awareness towards such simple but effective daily routines to flush toxins from our system, how we can know what food items are compatible to our body makeup and how to make food as medicine and how we can learn to process our thoughts, which impact on our state of mind. This is all taught by Ayurveda, that advocates living with awareness all the time is one way to boost our immune system. We need to learn how to strike balance in our lives.
To get an individualised and customised plan to build your immune system and live healthy at every level (physical, mental and emotional) you need to make a visit to an ayurvedic doctor who can create a programme for you. Then it is up to you to implement that programme for your wellbeing. Then no one need to live in fear until the vaccine is ready and can save many lives.
We can empower ourselves to be better and make ourselves complete, living in balance and health.
The other big issue that affects many of us in winter is joint pain and stiffness/tightness in the muscles and ligaments. Those who suffer from arthritis also start feeling more pain as this ailment can be worse in winter. In an effort to overcome these problems many of us look to products like Glucosamine or various multi-vitamins to ease some symptoms but still don’t get much relief. Whereas Ayurveda gives us a simple answer as to why we don’t get relief from such products and what one can to do to minimise these problems:
One simple and effective solution for those who suffer from arthritis and joint pain is to start massaging these joints with warm oil. You can use either cold pressed black sesame oil or and ayurvedic medicated oil such as Asthi Care oil every night. The reason why oil is more effective is that during winter, muscles and ligaments start becoming stiff and tight so the application of warm oil brings more lubrication and assists in the expansion and contraction of muscles and ligaments, which helps to minimise pain.
You must use hot water bottle in bed.
Avoid eating cold, damp, moist food such as
Use spices such as turmeric, ginger and black pepper in cooking
Eat warm food
Eat linseed and sesame seeds with raisins each day.
If the pain is more intense apply Arth Oil after your warm oil massage as it will ease the pain very quickly.
Ayurvedic herbal products that are effective to counter arthritis and joint pain:
Everyone has a dream that one day
they will have children and once they become parents, they feel so happy. Every
parent does their best to provide every comfort to their little ones. They try
to fulfil their child’s every desire, no matter how big or small.
Whenever a child gets sick, we take
them to the GP and get the best advice. When the same child starts getting sick
frequently with bigger health problems such as cough, cold, runny nose, tummy
ache or gastric reflux, which are common ailments of children, we never stop to
think why is the child getting sick so often?
If a child must take Panadol constantly
or a regular course of antibiotics prescribed by GP, what impact will that have
on the little one? If the child is having skin problems like eczema or psoriasis,
we apply cortisol creams, without a though of its impact on the child. And
slowly, as the child’s tolerance towards medicine increases, that same happy
child is now more irritable or cranky or has to be given more medicine for new
set of problems. We all need to understand that the regular intake of such
drugs is impacting on the child’s immune system and can also impact on child’s
Ayurvedic science advises that as
parents, we are responsible for our child’s wellbeing. Not many of us ever
think that my child sickness or ailment is due to their diet and eating habits,
which we have introduced as parents. It
is not the child who makes the decision to eat unhealthy foods such as bread,
cheese, pizza, burgers, fries and cold milk or other such processed foods. It
is we as parents who introduce these foods and make them susceptible to all
sort of ailments in the future
If your child is frequently suffering
from such ailments, then start making an effort to boost their immune system as
regular use of antibiotics or other drugs can impact on the liver, which, as
the largest metabolic organ in the body, will impact on a child’s digestion.
Chyawanprash is one of the best natural immune boosters and rejuvenators for
children. They can also take Sepnil Syrup to boost the immune system and
prevent all sorts of infections from occurring.
If your child is suffering from
digestive problems you should start giving Livelife syrup, one of the best
ayurvedic preparations that protects and supports the liver
In the same way if you child is
getting coughs and cold regularly, you can give them Kofnil Syrup to counter
Everyone of us who have a child for
age of 6 months to 13 years can use these remedies at home so your children can
be protected from such common problems:
The liver is one of the most important organs of the body, as any imbalances there causes indigestion, high cholesterol, fatigue, and constipation. Ayurveda considers the liver the seat of Pitta, which governs the metabolism and the body’s ability to break down nutrients from your food. This is a great time to do a mini-cleanse for your liver – especially with the holidays coming up, with all its heavy foods and drinks!
Here is our simple guide to cleansing your liver this holiday season.
💡 Every morning, scrape your tongue to remove waste products that accumulate overnight (otherwise they will be re-absorbed) 💡 Every morning, drink warm water with 1tsp of honey, 1/2 tsp of grated ginger, ½ tsp of powdered fennel and a 1/2 tsp of lemon juice to flush out toxins from the digestive tract. 💡 Avoid heavy foods that place pressure on the metabolism, like red meat, cheese, tinned foods, peanut and almond butter, carbonated drinks, coffee and alcohol and fried and fatty foods like fish and chips. 💡 Eat warm, light foods that are easy to digest. Consider lentils and Paneer (a form of cheese) as light protein replacements for meat. 💡 Use spices like cumin, turmeric, fennel and coriander in your cooking. 💡 Eat with a calm mind
It would not be an exaggeration to say that at the moment at least 80% of the New Zealand population is suffering from flu and influenza or cough. Everyone is in panic mode as doctors are running out of flu shots. But have we ever thought for a moment as to why is it so? Why in this season do we all have to suffer from cold and flu symptoms, which can lead to other seasonal ailments like asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia. Those who are a bit conscious or aware about their health and wellbeing go to the health store to pick up various antioxidants and immune boosters to fight these ailments but without much success. Why do we waste so much money and still end up with so many sick days?
Let’s take a deep breath and understand how we can break this vicious cycle. Today, everyone can win against this monster issue and experience a totally healthy state as long as they are able to follow the principles and advice of the ancient science known as Ayurveda. It has a very logical explanation as to why we suffer from various ailments in winder, with its wet, cold, damp and moist qualities. Ayurvedic science tells us that our bodies are governed by three bodily intelligences and each of them has specific functions, specific areas of dominance and specific qualities.
In Winter, the intelligences known as Kapha is dominant in the environment, as well as in our bodies. Kapha means water/mucous, coldness, dampness, heaviness, sluggishness. So what does this mean? It means our body tells us that we should not eat cold, damp, moist, heavy and sticky foods during this season as this will cause these qualities to accumulate in our bodies. But if you look at the 21 meals we eat in a week, you will find most of the time we eat bread, cheese, banana, yoghurt, cereals, pasta, cold water, cold drinks, burgers, pizza every day. It means we are adding to our bodies lot of thick, mucous quality foods and inviting trouble. If we observe whenever we have flus and cold or congestion, we get lots of mucous congestion and this get built up easily with all the above food items.
Hence to get better what should we do?
•Remove all such items from our daily eating habits;
•Eat only warm, cooked foods such as Porridge, pancakes, boiled eggs;
•In addition, do steam inhalation every day (2 litres of hot water with 10 drops of eucalyptus oil);
•Gargle with Himalayan salt at least twice a day (1glass of warm water and 1 teaspoon of salt);
•Only use warm milk;
•Never mix yoghurt and fruit, fruit and milk or milk and yoghurt;
•Make a mix and have it x3 times a day:
oX1 teaspoon of honey oX ½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder oX ½ teaspoon of ginger powder oX ½ teaspoon of black pepper oX ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder oMix and lick on tongue, x3 times a day
These routines can minimise your chances of suffering from these winter ailments by 80% but if you are still suffering then you can use the following ayurvedic supplements to give you some relief:
Now days everyone talks about the
need to take antioxidants to keep themselves going as they struggle to cope due
to the type of lifestyle they live and the diet they take. As a result of our hectic
or erratic lifestyle and incompatible food intake such as fast foods, processed
and tinned foods as well as living in an environment of jealousy, anger, hatred,
fear or feeling anxious as well as indulgence of excessive sexual activities,
one feels these anti-oxidants will compensate for what is being lost in my
However, the concept of taking
antioxidants is not new. In the ancient science of Ayurveda this aspect has
been explained under a special branch of study known as Rasayana, meaning
rejuvenation. Ayurvedic science has given it so much importance that the subject
is taught at great depth. The unique difference between our present day use of antioxidant
as compared to Rasyana in Ayurveda is that the present day use of anti-oxidants
is with a focus that if your body is lacking nourishment and you are feeling
run down or fatigued or tired and have some long term serious ailment you need
some so called natural anti-oxidants, which will substitute for the deficiency
your body is having. However, this is purely a symptomatic solution and defeats
the purpose and focus of the antioxidant strategy.
Antioxidants or Rasayana in
Ayurveda are used to revive our body’s intelligence by expelling the
accumulation of ama or free radical substances from the body as it is this
accumulation of waste that prevents the tissue, cells and organs from
performing their function properly. The definition of Rasayana in Ayurveda is
very simple and clearly give us understanding that the product and procedures
that help to build Rasa Dhatu to the optimum quality and will allow it to flow
all over the body so that all seven dhatus (tissues) get proper nourishment is
known as Rasayana or antioxidant therapy.
Every antioxidant or Rasyana
product should perform the following functions:
helps to burn ama and other waste products which are responsible for the ageing
process or affect one immune system;
the Agni (digestive fire);
proper nutrients for each tissue;
cleansing all channels (Srotas);
all three doshas;
to maintain Sattvic quality so the mind, sense organs and motor organs can be
of optimum quality and able to perform their function at an optimum level.
No antioxidant supplement is of any
use if it is only fixing your present deficiency and not returning your bodily
Rasayana should improve our physical,
mental, emotional qualities but reviving the bodily intelligence at each level.
In the study of Rasyana in Ayurveda there has been so many antioxidant
supplements and procedure for the revitalisation of specific tissues, organs
and systems. But two of the best know antioxidant preparations which are known
to revitalise everyone from young children to 80 to 90 year-old individuals and
should be used on a regular basis are Chyawanprash and Kesri Kalp.
Chyawanprash has several ayurvedic
herbs such as Amla (best known for its high quality of Vitamin C), Vidari,
Guduchi, Haritaki, Shatavari, Kutki and Prasarini to name a few that are known
to build all tissues. These herbs best known for their antioxidant and
rejuvenating qualities and naturally build all seven tissues. Kesri Kalp also
has all these herbs but includes several precious minerals such as gold, silver
and mica that have been specifically purified to extract their medicinal
qualities. Chyawanprash is best for all ages, while Kesri Kalp is very effective
for adults (35-90 years).
When is the best time to use
antioxidants or Rasyana? Winter is the best time to use such products as in
Winter our Agni is naturally strong and able to metabolise all ingredients so
antioxidants or Rasyana are more effective way to receive nourishment.
Everyone who feels their hectic,
busy and stressful lifestyle and erratic diet have impacted their body’s immune
system should use antioxidants but only those products that treat the problem
at its root by burning and expelling toxic waste products and returning the
body’s natural intelligence to its natural, balanced state.
Prana is our life force. The key to keeping Prana in
an optimum state in our body is regular breathing. However, breathing is such
an automatic, natural function that we are often not aware we are doing it.
One can live without food but not without prana. To
maintain Prana, regular rhythmic breathing is very important. To preserve the
balance of Prana one should take deep, long, slow breaths, in through the nose
and out through the nose. This process of deep breathing should be repeated at
least 3 -4 times a day, taking at least 10—15 deep, long breaths each time.
Our breathing is affected with every action, every
activity of the day; the way we act, react, walk, talk.
Many of us feel that our breathing is good because we live
with awareness or do regular exercise or yoga in the morning and Pranaynam
(specific yogic breathing) in the evening so don't need to focus on breathing
during the day. Unfortunately, we forget that our breathing can be affected by
various circumstances and situations during the day. For example, watch people
working on computers and you will see that at least 80% of them have shallow
breathing as we forget to breath while focussed on our computers. Also,
whenever people are working on an important project or have to attend an
important meeting, the stress and anxiety that creates will impact on the
When people are made aware about this, their first
reaction is to think there is no problem. "I am practicing yoga or going
to the gym after work so should be fine," they say. Unfortunately, this is
not always the case. When one is stressed, anxious or nervous this impacts on
our inner tissues as well. This stress or anxiety causes a loss of Prana in the
cells. When Prana is depleted in our tissues, it makes us fatigued, tired,
unstable and foggy minded. If one does not act to revive the situation on a
regular basis, then many of those cells will die. This will untimely affect
one's immune strength so it is very important to do regular deep breathing throughout
How does anxiety take Prana from cells? Whenever one
is anxious or nervous the bodily systems naturally go into constriction mode,
which hampers the normal flow of Prana in the blood stream. Also, due to the
constriction in the cells, Prana will move out of cell and they become more
fragile as the oxidation process is compromised. When this happens, cells
become dry, rough and cold, which accelerates the damage.
How does stress take Prana out of cells? When one is
overworked and unable to handle work pressure and deadlines, one can start
feeling frustrated and angry. Anger and frustration will increase the hot
quality in the blood and this will affect our cells too. This excess heat
impacts on the Prana in the cells and can lead to quicker cell destruction. The
only regime that can prevent damage to our cells and tissue is deep, long slow
breathing on a regular basis.
Why do I need to do breathing throughout the day when
I am doing Pranaynam in the early morning?
It is always wise to perform such routines that keep our Prana more
stable and it is true that regular Pranaynam practice will put us in a much
better position than others. Unfortunately, our activities during the day also
impact on our wellbeing so if someone experiences a higher level of anxiety or
frustration, it will impact on our systems, not only at a superficial level but
also at a deeper cellular level. Due to these activities, Prana will leave our
cells and they become prone to imbalances. Therefore, regular breathing during
the day is advised to re-vitalise the cells, as they can't wait for you to get
home to perform you Pranaynam practice. By the time damage is done hence
breathing is required within 2-3 hours after the activity that affects one's
The joints in the human body are remarkable pieces of engineering. From hinge joints like the elbows and knees, to ball and socket joint at the shoulders and hips, they allow us to perform a wide range of movements and activities. However, without proper care, these joints can slowly deteriorate from the wear and tear of daily life, leading to stiffness, tightness and pain.
