जानिए बस्ती पंचकर्म के पीछेका शास्त्रीय विचार क्या है? Blog – 59

नमस्कार

पिछले ब्लॉग मे हमने पंचकर्म, उसके प्रकार वमन और विरेचन कर्म इनके बारे में अधिक जानकारी ली थी | इस ब्लॉग मे हम बस्ती कर्म के बारे मे जानकारी लेंगे |

लोगों को बस्ती कर्म याने पेट साफ करने वाली दवा इतना ही पता होता है| पेट साफ हो गया और अच्छा लगने लगता है।

कया बस्ती कर्म का इतना ही उपयोग है ? – नही | बस्ती चिकित्सा के पीछे एक बहुत महत्वपूर्ण विचार/ शास्त्र है।

आयुर्वेद में बस्ती चिकित्सा को “आधी चिकित्सा” कहा जाता है।

मतलब रुग्ण को हम सिर्फ बस्ती चिकित्सा देकर 50% ठीक कर सकते हैं | और बाकी के 50% गुण के लिए बाकी सब पंचकर्म, दवाई, जीवनशैली में बदलाव और व्यायाम की जरूरत पड़ती है। याने रुग्ण को 50% गुण सिर्फ बस्ती चिकित्सा से ही मिल जाता है।

आयुर्वेदने इसलिए बस्ती चिकित्सा को बहुत महत्वपूर्ण माना है। तो उसके पीछे का शास्त्र भी बहुत महत्वपूर्ण होगा।

चलो इस ब्लॉग में हम जानते हैं कि बस्ती कर्म के पीछे क्या शास्त्रीय विचार है?

उससे पहले हमें अपने शरीर के पचनमार्ग के बारे में थोड़ी जानकारी होना आवश्यक है।

हम जो अन्न खाते है उसपर पचन संस्कार मुंह में शुरू हो जाता है| फिर अन्न जैसे नीचे नीचे जाता है वैसे पेट, जठर, अग्न्याशय याने (stomach, liver, Pancrease) से पाचक स्त्राव उसमे मिलते है। फिर वह अन्न नीचे छोटे और बड़े आंतडो में जाता है| छोटे और बड़े आंतडोमे उस अन्न से पोषक अंशको खून में शोष लिया जाता है।

मतलब इधर एक बात पर गौर किजिए कि जो पोषक अंश खून में शोष लिया जाता है वह आतडो से होता है। और जब यह पोषक अंश खून में शोष लिया जाता है उसके बाद वह पूरे शरीर में जाकर शरीर का पोषन होता है और हमारे शरीर को ताकत मिलती है। इसी तत्व का फायदा बस्ती चिकित्सामें उन जमाने में ऋषियों ने किया।

कैसे?

दवा को ३ घंटे के पचन मार्ग से जानेकी आवश्यकता नहीं होती। इसलिए उन विद्वान ऋषियों ने बस्ती चिकित्साकी निर्मिती की ।बस्ती चिकित्सा द्वारा दवाईयां सिधा आंतडो में जाती है और मिनटोमें आंतडो से रक्त मे शोषण होती है और अपना काम शुरू कर देती है।

मतलब उन दिनो मे बस्ती चिकित्सा यह इमरजेंसी सर्विस याने अत्यायिक चिकित्सा होती थी।

उन ऋषियों और उनकी विद्वता को सलाम।

आप आश्चर्यचकित हो गए ना जानकर कि बस्ती चिकित्सा कितनी महत्वपूर्ण है और उसके पीछे इतना गहन शास्त्र है |

आयुर्वेद ऐसे अनेक सिद्धांतो से परिपूर्ण है क्युकि आयुर्वेद यह एक शास्त्र है। इसलिए उसके सिद्धांत समझ न आए तो आयुर्वेद के बारे में नाम रखने से पहले उस शास्त्र का अभ्यास करना चाहिए|

क्युकि आयुर्वेद के सिद्धांत सिद्ध करके अंत हुए हैं, याने यह तत्व सिद्ध हुए है और उसके आगे सिद्ध करने जैसा कुछ नही है। इसलिए आयुर्वेद के सिद्धांत इतने सालो बाद आज भी सच है | इसलिए अपने शास्त्र प्रति आदर रखो।

आयुर्वेद के सिद्धांत के बारे मे हम आनेवाले ब्लॉगस् मे लिखते रहेंगे|

अगले ब्लॉगमे हम बस्ती के प्रकार और बस्ती के बारे मे और अधिक जानकारी लेंगे|

आयुर्वेद के प्रचार के लिए यह ब्लॉग को ज्यादा से ज्यादा शेयर करे, लाइक करे|

Science behind Basti Panchakarma – Blog – 58

Welcome to Treasures of Ayurveda Blog.

In last Blog we learnt about panchakarma, its various types – Vaman and Virechan in detail. In today’s Blog we will learn about BASTI CHIKITSA.

Generally , Basti is perceived as something which clears ones bowels.

Is that the sole role of BASTI ? No.

Do you think ayurveda will give so much of importance to a therapy whose role is to only clear your bowels.

Ofcourse not.

Basti has a well established science behind it.

So in today’s blog we are going to learn

What is the science behind BASTI CHIKITSA?

Ayurveda considers basti as “half treatment”.

Means if a patient come to us for treatment , then with only basti treatment we can cure patient upto 50%. and for the remaining 50% result we need the help other karma’s, medicine, diet, exercise.

Such is the importance given by  Ayurveda to  basti treatment.

So before understanding the science behind the basti treatment we should have a glimpse at our digestive system.

When we eat food , it’s digestion starts from the mouth. As the food descends downwards into the stomach , it gets mixed with different gastric juices and liver enzymes. The main function of absorption of nutrition from food takes place in the intestine- large intestine as well as small intestine. Absorbed nutrients from the food along with blood goes to the whole body and thus our body gets nourishment.

So the important fact to remember here is – Absorption takes place in the intestine. This principle was used by our hrishi’s in formulating the Basti Chikitsa.

Food needs a three hour digestion process so that it gets converted to a form through which body can absorb nutrients. But a medicine doesn’t required 3 hours digestion process to be absorbed into the blood. So to cut short this 3 hours process and reach intestine directly our Hrishis formulated BASTI Chikitsa,

Medicines in the form of kadhas or ghee were used to insert into the large intestine with the help of a BASTI YANTRA so that medicine gets absorbed into the blood within seconds.And thus a medical emergency treatment came into existance in those ancient days….hence BASTI chikitsa had such inportance.

You must be astonished to know the science behind basti treatment.

Our hrishi’s need to be saluted for discovering such Novel, emergency treatment modality called Basti Chikitsa in those days.

All Panchakarmas and medicine of Ayurveda have science behind it. It is called a Siddhant.

Siddhant – Siddha + Anth

Siddha means something which is proven and anth means it is the end. Means it is the truth which is proven and its not going to change. All the Siddhant told in ayurveda are very unique and are truths of Life.

If we dont understand these Siddhants then it might be because we have not made efforts to find details , study it or we are not intelligent to understand it. But saying that Ayurveda is not science , is all bullshit . We should study, investigate and learn the science first.

Ayurveda is time-tested science which is true even today. So we should pay respect to Ayurveda and start learning it. I am playing my small role in propogating  ayurveda by telling science behind Ayurveda, you do yours.

In next blog we will learn about basti karma in details like types, advantages etc.

Do follow our blog treasures of Ayurveda.

Stay Healthy Stay Blessed.

Thank you

बस्ती पंचकर्मामागील शास्त्रीय विचार काय आहे ? – Blog – 57

मागील ब्लॉग मध्ये आपण पंचकर्म, त्याचे प्रकार आणि वमन, विरेचन या कर्माबद्दल माहिती घेतली. आणि आजच्या ब्लॉग मध्ये आपण बस्ती चिकित्सा बद्दल माहिती घेणार आहोत.

बस्ती चिकित्सा म्हणजे काय ?

बस्ती चिकित्सा म्हणजे सामान्यपणे एनीमा म्हणजे पोट साफ करणारे औषध असं मानलं जात कारण पोट साफ झालं की बरं वाटतं.

पण तसे नाही आहे .

बस्ती चिकित्सेमागे खूप महत्वपूर्ण शास्त्रीय विचार आहे.

आयुर्वेदाने बस्ती चिकित्सेला “अर्धी चिकित्सा” मानली आहे. म्हणजे एखाद्या रुग्णाला बरं करण्यासाठी बस्ती चिकित्सा दिली तर ५० टक्के गुण फक्त बस्ती चिकित्सेने मिळतो आणि उरलेल्या ५० टक्के गुणासाठी इतर पंचकर्म, औषध, आहार, व्यायाम यांची योजना करावी लागते.

जर आयुर्वेदाने बस्ती चिकित्सेला इतके महत्व दिले आहे तर त्यामागील शास्त्रीय विचार अत्यंत महत्वपूर्ण असणार.

चला तर मग जाणून घेऊया बस्ती कर्मामागील शास्त्रीय विचार.

त्यासाठी पहिले आपल्याला आपल्या पचन संस्थेबद्दल थोडीशी माहिती करून घ्यावी लागणार. आहे.

आपण जे अन्न खातो त्याचे पचन तोंडात सुरू होते. त्यानंतर ते अन्न खाली पोटात म्हणजे Stomach आणि जठर म्हणजे Liver कडे जाते , या अवयवांमधून विविध स्त्राव अन्नात मिसळले जातात आणि जेव्हा ते अन्न आतड्यामध्ये जाते तेव्हा त्यातून पोषक अंश रक्तात शोषून घेतले जातात आणि मग ते पोषक अंश रक्ताद्वारे पूर्ण शरीरात जाऊन शरीराला पोषण देतात.

तर इथे महत्वाची गोष्ट लक्षात ठेवण्याची ही आहे की रक्तात जो पोषक अंश आतड्या मधून शोषला जातो . ह्याच ज्ञानाचा आयुर्वेदाने सुंदररित्या बस्ती चिकित्सेत उपयोग केलेला आहे.  त्या ऋषींना शतश: नमन. 

औषध रक्तात लगेच शोषले गेले पाहिजे.औषधाला अन्न मार्गातून जाण्याची काही आवश्यकता नसते, तीन तासांचा वेळ वाचतो. त्यामुळे आयुर्वेदात बस्ती चिकित्सेद्वारे औषध, काढे, तूप हे आतड्यामध्ये मोठ्या प्रमाणात सोडली जातात. आतड्याचे काम आहे औषध लगेच रक्तात शोषून घेणे आणि त्यामुळे सेकंदात औषध रक्तात जाऊन त्याचे काम सुरू करते .तर बस्ती म्हणजे फक्त पोट साफ करणारे औषध नाही, तर

बस्ती म्हणजे आत्यायिक चिकित्सा.

म्हणजे बस्ती चिकित्सा ही जुन्या काळाची Emergency Services म्हणजे अत्यायिक चिकित्सा होती असे आपण म्हणू शकतो. से आज काल आपण नसेमधून मधून रक्तात लगेच औषध सोडतो तसं त्या काळी बस्ती चिकित्सेद्वारे औषध आतडयात सोडून सेकंदात ते रक्तात शोषले जात असे.

बस्ती चिकित्सा म्हणजे Emergency Services.

आश्चर्यचकित झाला ना .. जाणून.. कि बस्ती चिकित्सेमागे आयुर्वेदाचा इतका मोठा गहण विचार आहे.

आयुर्वेद हे एक शास्त्र आहे हे लक्षात घ्या , आपल्या बुद्धीला त्याच्या मागचे शास्त्र , सिद्धांत समजत नसतील तर त्याला नावे ठेवू नका किंवा ते चुकीच आहे असे मानू नका. त्याच्यापेक्षा त्याच्या मागे काय शास्त्रीय विचार असेल ह्याच अभ्यास करून शोध घ्या .

आपल्या आयुर्वेद शास्त्राबद्दल आदर बाळगा. कारण

आयुर्वेदिक शास्त्राचा प्रत्येक सिद्धांत = सिद्ध + अंत म्हणजे ते सत्य आहे आणि ते सत्य सिद्ध केलेले आहे आणि त्याच्या पुढे सिद्ध करण्यासाठी काही उरले नाही …..अंत आहे. त्याच्यापुढे त्याच्यात बदल नाही ह्याला सिद्धांत म्हणतात.

हा ब्लॉग जास्तीत जास्त फॉरवर्ड करा म्हणजे आयुर्वेदाच्या मागचे सिद्धांत लोकांना कळतील. हा ब्लॉग जास्तीत जास्त शेअर करा, तुमचे कमेंट कळवा आणि पुढील ब्लॉग मध्ये आपण बस्तीचीचे विविध प्रकार त्याचे उपयोग यांच्याबद्दल माहिती करून घेऊया.

Stay Healthy ,Stay blessed.

Home Remedy For Bleeding Fissure And Piles – ONION (Home Remedy – 07) Blog – 51

Our today’s topic is – Fissure and Piles

Fissure and Piles are very troublesome and painful diseases as they hamper our daily activities. And if bleeding starts from fissure and piles then the trouble doubles and leads to lot of weakness too.

So let us understand

Who are more prone to having fissure and piles?

People who consume spicy food, non veg and those who are constipated ,they suffer more from this disease.

How to prevent these diseases?

1) Avoid getting constipated.

2) Follow “HEALTH MANTRA”of summer season.

The link of HEALTH MANTRA video named Immunity booster for october- Coconut is shared  below ,do watch the video

So ‘HEALTH MANTRA’ for summer is –

“Eat Sweet, White, Watery, Coconut and Boiled food to avoid diseases of summer season.

So what to eat?

  • Eat food which is white in colour like rice, coconut etc.
  • Eat white fruits like apple, guava, banana, custard apple etc as white things are coolant.
  • In diet have more of milk and milk products likes ghee, buttermilk, makkhan i.e butter.
  • Avoid oily and spicy food esp green chilli, pepper, ginger, garlic.

In summer season if you don’t follow HEALTH MANTRA and eat lot of spicy food likes raw green chillies in form of chutney, sandwich, pani puri then bleeding starts from fissure and piles.

How to stop this bleeding?

Simple home remedy is –

ONION – Roast onion on the stove with the peels then take out the peels and consume it or have onion with curd. This remedy immediately stops bleeding from fissure and piles.

What diet changes to do if you get fissure and/or piles ?

1) Completely stop green chillies, pepper, ginger, garlic.

2) Consume a lot of buttermilk in both meals.

3) Eat SURAN vegetable. i.e. Elephant yam atleast 2-3 times in a week.

Before making SURAN vegetable, soak suran in buttermilk for an hour then wash it with warm water. As suran contains alot of calcium oxalates it should be soaked in buttermilk to remove oxalates. Eating suraj in raw form causes throat, tongue irritation and increases chances of joint pain as well as kidney stone.

4. Avoid eating green leafy vegetables and salads as fibres in them rub against pile mass and fissure and thus aggregates pain.

If you are constipated – to relief constipation consume 1 cup milk or 1 cup warm water added with 1 teaspoon of ghee or one teaspoon of almond oil before meals. This relieves constipation and flatus, as well as soothens anal skin and thus eases irritation and burning in anal area.

5. Every day in the morning and at night consume 1 teaspoon of Triphala powder or 2 tablets of Triphala on empty stomach with warm water.

All these home remedies will act as preventive measures against fissure and piles or will relieve your symptoms of fissure and piles.
But still you need to consult a doctor to treat the root cause.

In panchakarma,a therapy called KSHARSUTRA cuts the pile mass from the base and thus removes it completely.

So do take advantage of Ayurveda to stay completely away from fissure and piles.

And follow health mantra and home remedies to prevent as well as cure fissure and piles. Hope you benefit from our home remedies.

Stay connected with us for more home remedies.

Till then Stay Healthy Stay Blessed.

WHAT IS IMMUNITY BOOSTER ? (HEALTH MANTRA – 08) BLOG – 41

Have you wondered. What is real IMMUNUTY ?

IMMUNITY is anything which prevent diseases. like exercise, healthy food, healthy routine.  

In Ayurveda all this is called Dincharya.

“Din means Day and charya means lifestyle. ie ideal lifestyle.”

But even after following ideal lifestyle we fall sick with change in season. Why?

Because we don’t change our routine and diet with change in season. In ayurveda changes in diet and routine are describe in detail under the heading “Hritucharya.”

“Hritu means Season and Charya means lifestyle.”

When is the cold outside we wear woolen clothes. But what about other diet and routine changes we don’t make changes in diet and routine according to season so fall sick.

So if by following Hritucharya we can prevent diseases. So is today’s terminology we can say Hritucharya is IMMUNITY BOOSTER.

So IMMUNITY BOOSTER is not a churn or powder or tablet. But IMMUNITY BOOSTER is complete change in diet and routine according to season. Isn’t it fascinating

So of course immunity booster would be different for each season.

In Ayurveda six Hrituchrya are describe to six seasons.

We will be disscussing it in a coming videos.

So today’s Health Mantra – 08

“Following Hritucharya is the real IMMUNITY BOOSTER”.

So in our next video will discuss about “Immunity booster for October Heat”

Stay healthy, Stay Blessed.

नारली पौर्णिमा से नारियल खाओ और निरोगी रहो|(आरोग्य मंत्र – 0६) Blog- 37

पिछले आरोग्य मंत्र वीडियोज मे हमने जाना कि निरोगी रहने के लिए हमारी प्रतिकार शक्ती अच्छी होनी चाहिए | और प्रतिकार शक्ती अच्छी रहने के लिए हमे ऋतु के नुसार हमारे आहार विहार मे बदलाव करने चाहिए |

आहार विहार मे क्या बदलाव करने चाहिए ये हमे त्यौहार सिखाते है |

कैसे ?

ये हमने आरोग्य मंत्र वीडियो नंबर – ०५ मे आपको बताया है |इस विडियो की लिंक ब्लॉग के नीचे दी है।

त्यौहार के नुसार आहार विहार मे बदलाव करने से हम निरोगी रहते है | लेकिन ये बदलाव सिर्फ उस त्यौहार के दिन अपनाने नही चाहिए, बल्कि उस त्यौहार से लेकर अगले त्यौहार तक ये  बदलाव हमे अपनाने चाहिए |

तो आज का हमारा विषय है |

नारली पौर्णिमा से नारियल खाओ और निरोगी रहो”.

कैसे ?

ये जानने के लिए हमे नारली पौर्णिमा के पीछे का शास्त्र पता होना चाहिए |

नारली पौर्णिमा कब आती है ?

नारली पौर्णिमा श्रावण के पौर्णिमा को याने जब वर्षा ऋतु धीरे धीरे कम हो रही हो और शरद ऋतु याने ऑक्टोबर हीट शुरू हो रही हो तब आती है |

इस ऋतु मे हमे आहार विहार मे क्या बदलाव करने चाहिए ?

वर्षा ऋतु मे जो आहार विहार बताए गए है जैसे गरम, तीखा, तला ये सब धीरे धीरे कम करने चाहिए और शरद ऋतु मे जो आहार विहार बताए है वह शुरू करने चाहिए |

तो शरद ऋतु मे क्या आहार विहार बताए है ?

यही नारली पौर्णिमा मे बताया है |

नारली पौर्णिमा मे बताया है कि शक्कर, चावल और नारियल खाना चाहिए |

क्यु ?

आयुर्वेद नुसार शरद ऋतु मे पित्तप्रकोप काल होता है |याने इस ऋतु मे पित्त बहुत ज्यादा बढता है और हमे पित्त कि सारी बीमारियाँ जैसे माइग्रेन, एसिडिटि, सिरदर्द आदि होने लगती है |

हर त्यौहार मे जो पदार्थ खाने को कहे जाते है वह प्रतिकात्मक होते है (याने इस तरह खाओ) जैसे नारियल प्रतिकात्मक है| नारियल याने सफ़ेद, मीठे, पानीयुक्त पदार्थ हमे खाने चाहिए |

इन प्रतिकात्मक पदार्थों को जरा विस्तार से जानते है ।

  • सफ़ेद पदार्थ – सफ़ेद रंग पित्त शामक याने पित्त कम करने वाला होता है | इसलिए सफ़ेद पदार्थ जैसे दूध, दूध के पदार्थ, चावल ज्यादा खाना शुरू करना चाहिए |
  • पानीयुक्त पदार्थ –ऑक्टोबर मे गर्मी के बजह से शरीर मे पानी का अंश बहुत कम हो जाता है इसलिए धीरे धीरे पानीयुक्त चीजे जैसे नारियल पानी, शर्बत, छाछ इनका सेवन हमे करना चाहिए |
  • मीठे पदार्थ – मीठे पदार्थ वात और पित्त दोनों को कम करते है इसलिए इनका सेवन शुरू करना चाहिए जैसे शक्कर ,गुड ,मीठे पक्वान्न आदि और नैसर्गिक मीठे पदार्थ याने फल | फल मीठे, खट्टे और पानीयुक्त होते है इसलिए वात और पित्त दोनों को कम करते है |

तो आज का हमारा आरोग्य मंत्र – 0६ है –

वर्षा ऋतु का तीखा, गरम, तला खाना धीरे-धीरे कम करो और शरद ऋतु का मीठा,सफ़ेद, पानीयुक्त अन्न खाना धीरे-धीरे शुरू करो |”

नारियल मे ये सभी गुण है – सफेद, मीठा, पानीयुक्त और फल भी है |

इसलिए नारली पौर्णिमा से बताया है नारियल खाओ और निरोगी रहो |

तो इस ऋतु से हर रोज अपने खाने मे हमे नारियल का सेवन अलग अलग तरह से जरूर करना चाहिए जिससे हम निरोगी रहे ।

अगले त्यौहार तक इस आरोग्य मंत्र को follow कीजिये  और हमे follow कीजिये जानने के लिए कि कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी के पीछे का आरोग्य मंत्र क्या है ?

Stay Healthy Stay Blessed  .

Narali Pournima – Start eating Coconut to remain healthy (Health Mantra -06) Blog -36

In our past videos we learnt that if our Immunity is good we remain healthy .And to keep immunity good we must change lifestyle according to season change .

What seasonal changes should be made in diet and routine are told by Festivals.

How ?

That is discussed in our last Health mantra no – 05 video . The link of that video is given at the end of this blog.

So if we follow lifestyle changes told by festivals then we remain healthy. But those changes should not be followed only during that festival. But lifestyle changes should be imbibed from that festival till next festival.

So our todays topic is “From Naarali Pournima start eating coconut and remain healthy.

How ?

Well to understand this, we must inquire into the Science behind Narali Pournima.

When does Naarali Pournima come ?

On Pournima of Shravan, when rainy season is about to end and october heat is going to start.

So what changes we should do in lifestyle ?

We should slowly stop Varsha/rainy lifestyle of hot, spicy and fried food and change to Sharad Hritu /October heat lifestyle.

So what is Sharad Hritu /October heat lifestyle?

That is told on festival Naarali pournima.

On Naarali Pournima we are advised to eat sugar, rice and coconut.

Things advised on festivals symbolically tells us what changes to do.

Like COCONUT symbolically tells us to eat White, Sweet and things with lot of water in it as these reduces Pittah as well Vaat.

Let’s understand these symbolical language in a bit detail.

  • White  Things –  White  color is coolant. So white things reduce Pittah in the body. Therefore start consuming white things like rice, milk, milk products, coconut etc.
  • Sweet things – Sweet things decrease Vaat as well Pittah in the body. So slowly increase eating sweet foods like sugar, jaggery etc and natural sweet like Fruits. Fruits are sweet, sour as well contain water so it reduces Vaat as well Pittah .
  • Things with more water content – like butter milk, fruits, Juices, sharbat, coconut water etc as October heat is going to disturb your water balance in body.

So our Health Mantra – 06 is

“ Stop eating Rainy diet ie spicy, hot, fried and slowly start eating Summer diet ie White, Watery and Sweet.”

Coconut has all above properties. It is fruit, sweet, watery and white. So it balances Vaat as well Pittah and keeps you healthy .

So from Naarali Pournima start eating coconut everyday in diet in varied forms to remain healthy.

So start following Festival Lifestyle to remain healthy and start following us to know new Health Mantra.

Our next Health Mantra will be science behind Janmashtmi.

So till next week.

Stay Healthy, Stay Blessed .      

NAGPANCHAMI TEACHES US HEALTH MANTRA ( health mantra -05 )BLOG NO-35

Have you ever wondered if there is any role of festivals in keeping us healthy?

Like today is Nagpanchami ……so is there any SCIENCE behind diet and routine advised on Nagpanchami.

Changes in season brings about changes in our body too but we don’t make changes in diet and routine according to change in season so we fall sick.

So how will we know what changes to make in diet and routine to remain Healthy even during season change?

Therefore our ‘Hrishis’ kept festivals during season change, and they advised what diet and routine to be followed during season change as diet and routine of that Festival.

Surprised…..to know …..that there science in our culture and festivals too?

So let’s understand What diet and routine is advised on Nagpanchami?

1. Upvaas – as rainy season is still going on.

2.Don’t Cut and Fry.

3. Milk – Pittah Shamak – Kheer, halwa

Upvaas – Our digestion is governed by sun’s clock.In rainy days as sun is covered with clouds most time of day so our digestive power (agni) is weak. If we eat heavy to digest food then we tend to fall sick.So UPAVAAS is advised.

Do do not CUT and FRY– According to Ayurveda September and October is Pittah prakop Kaal means Pittah is  going to increases alot in these month. So as a prevention we are advised to slowly stop eating fried food advised in rainy season.

Milk – Milk we offer to Nagdevta which Symbolically initiates us to start consuming white things as white colour is pittah shamak ie it reduces pittah.

So all things advised on Nagpanchmi are Preventive measures againts october heat .

So our Health Mantra – 05 is

“Start eating white things, do upvaas and reduce eating fried food.”

The diet advised on one festival is not only for that day but that diet and routine should be followed from that festival till next festival.
So follow changes advised on festivals and remain HEALTHY

How to combact October heat and keep immunity high. (Blog – 13)

I have already written blogs about “Real Immunity”https://treasuresofayurveda.com/2020/07/13/how-to-keep-immunity-high/ and “Festivals teach us how to remain healthy”. If you would read those articles first you would understand this article better.

In Indian tradition, hrishi’s had all the knowledge about how seasonal changes affect our body and cause diseases and how changes in diet and routine according to season change could help us remain healthy. These changes were described by them as ” Hritucharya”.

But how would common man have knowledge about these hritucharyas? so they designed festivals…..and placed the festivals just before seasonal changes. In the festivals they described the changes to be made in diet and routine as a ” Festival ritual”. So the common man while following the ritual indirectly was following Hritucharya and benefitted from it.

Such was the geniousness of these hrishis….the science knowlegde was put in the form of Dharma and rituals so that common man would follow it to remain healthy . ( ofcourse with course of time and selfishness of following generations to dominate…the actual science behind these dharma and rituals was kept hidden and myths were promoted)

So in such a way ,FESTIVALS help common man to understand that a seasonal change is coming and the tradition for that festival is so formulated that common man would understand what diet and routine changes to make according to season to remain healthy.

According to hindu calendar, October is known as “SHARAD HRITU’. This is the season of “Pittah prakope” i.e. increase in characteristics of PITTAH in the environment as well in our body.

“As in Universe so in our Body”  so the characteristics of pittah i.e. heat , sweating , “USHNA, TIKSHNA” qualities increases.

Ganapati festival marks the beginning of this October heat. This festival teaches us the hritucharya i.e. diet and routine changes for October month.

“Why don’t we offer spicy and fried food to GANAPATI?” ever thought about it?

Food offered to deities for festivals is for our internal God ( God in our body) to we remain healthy.In October heat is spicy and oily diet is not advisable to remain healthy.

So TRADITION of offering boiled things like modak and food with coolant properties ( Properties opposite to Pittah) to GANAPATI was set so as to maintain internal equilibrium and health.

Modak is a symbolic thing advising us to eat more boiled food than fried food. Fried food causes a lot thurst and already October heat takes away water from body through perspiration. Also boiled food is easily digested and keeps metabolism good in this season.

Coconut symbolizes white things. White colour stands for calmness. Anything white in nature has cooling property. There is science behind colours too you know….!!!!. So eat white things more in this season i.e. milk and milk products, coconut, rice etc.

Raisins stand for what dryfruits to eat. Sour taste foods decrease pittah. So eat dryfruits which are sour and not oil producing like raisins, anjeer etc.

Durva is symbolizing juices with coolant properties. Dure to heat we feel more thirsty so drinking juices and sharabats is more pacifying than chilled water. Husk sharabat/ rose sharabat/ lemonade etc. have coolant property and sour taste so they not only pacify your thirst but also pacify “ Pittah” so you don’t feel much thirst and as well you don’t fall sick to diseases of heat like urine burning , nose bleed, migraine etc.

Last but not least , the five fruits we offer to God is for us to understand  what are fruits for this season. God knows better what is healthy for us in which season …so eat seasonal fruits to keep health and immunity high. Fruits for this season is guava, chikoo, sitaphal,pomegranate,banana etc. All pulpy ,sour and sweet to keep pittah in balance.

 So Real Immunity is changing diet and routine according to season and festivals are here to teach us these changes. So we can call “festivals as immunity boosting” can’t we???

So October heat  mantra is “Avoid – Red, Orange, Spicy , Oily things” Eat “Boiled , sour, juices, fruits and white things

So guys follow hritucharya and enjoy October.

How to keep IMMUNITY high in rainyseason (Blog – 08)

As discussed earlier in our last blog ” HOW TO KEEP IMMUNITY HIGH” , Immunity is lifestyle change according to change in season…..which our hrishi’s named as “HRITUCHARYA” (Change in diet and routine according to season)

” As in nature so in our body”

In rainy season, WETNESS, SOURNESS, VAAT (AIR) ,COLDNESS increases in environment as well in our body. So we tend to fall sick with diseases that increase these qualities in body.

SOURNESSSOURNESSSWELLINGS
WETNESS, COLDNESSKAPHA INCREASESCOUGH, COLD, FEVER, FUNGAL INFECTIONS
Nature-Body-Disease chart

So diet and routine opposite to above will keep mahabhutas in balalnce in our body and thus keep us healthy…in short it will keep our immunity high.

The MANTRA for IMMUNITY of rainy season would be-

DRY, SPICY, OIL, HOT,LIGHT

So the ideal routine would be –

  • Drink a glass of hot water in the morning.
  • After brushing teeth , massage gums, teeth and tongue with dry dantamanjan powder( dry powder of mixed herbs). This powder removes excess KAPHA from mouth and throat, strengthens gums, removed tartar, cleans coating of tongue, removes bad breath and thus keeps our mouth (the first door of digestion) healthy.
  • Drink hot tea, preferably without milk, add herbs like sunth, tulsi, a pinch of turmeric.
  • Vaat increases in this season, so apply and lightly massageoil to whole body ….prefer oil with warm qualities like til oil ( sesame oil).
  • According to ayurveda, LIGHT exercise should be done in rainy and summer season.
  • Applying oil before exercise is beneficial as it reduced VAAT as well helps avoid strains, aches, sprains following exercise.
  • Non – strenous exercise is preferred in this season. Do exercise which increases warmth in our body and increases digestive fire…like SURYA NAMASKAR , Pranayam (Especially, Kapal-bhati and Bhastriya Pranayam)
  • Take HOT WATER bath. Add a few NEEM leaves to bath water. Neem has antibacterial and anti fungal properties. Fungal infections tend to happen more in rainy season so neem is good preventive measure for it.
  • Eat garlic chutney in diet. ( Garlic has very good anti- viral property…but shouldn’ t be eaten in raw form as might cause stomach ulcer…..make a chutney of garlic with coconut, salt, sugar and red chilly powder in it). In rainy season, viral infections like viral cold, cough, flu, fever are in boom. So this chutney acts as a protective umbrella against these rainy diseases.
  • Use alot spices ( garam masala i.e. pepper, ginger, cinnamon, cardammon, cloves, bay leaf, cumin seeds etc) in diet …avoid green chillies.
  • Last but not the least, LIGHT DINNER is very very important in this season as digestive powder is less in this season .
  • Eat rosated food. Avoid fruits, Eat dryfruits.
  • Keep yourself Dry. Wear sleepers at home.
  • Avoid things which have qualities similar to the qualities which have increased in season .

So IMMUNITY Mantra is Avoid – WET,SOUR, COLD, HEAVY TO DIGEST

To sum up, nature provides different things in different seasons to maintain health.Like in summer season heat increases alot so nature provide us with all watery, citrous, sweet, juicy fruits to maintain health. And the same nature doesn’t give any fruits in rainy season.

So , we should maintain health by eating seasonal fruits and vegetables and following HRITUCHARYTA.

The RAINY SEASON hritucharya ( called as VARSHA HRITUCHARYA) can be coined in today’s terms as “IMMUNITY BOOSTERS OF RAINY SEASON”)

  • Use – HOT, DRY, SPICY, OIL, LIGHT TO DIGEST
  • Avoid – WET, SOUR, COLD, HEAVY TO DIGEST.

LIFE IS CHANGE…AND NATURE MAINTAINS ITSELF BY ACCEPTING THIS CHANGE

So let us also accept HRITUCHARYA and enjoy HEALTHY RAINY SEASON.

Stay healthy, Stay happy, Stay blessed.

HOW TO KEEP IMMUNITY HIGH ? (Blog – 07)

For that we should have some knowledge (not information) about basic principles of Ayurveda so that we could make correct choices.

Present era is of information and marketing , so much of information is present on net that we can’t differentiate what is correct and what is wrong especially about AYURVEDA and herbal.

Universe is made up of five basic elements called PANCH- MAHABHUTAS . Earth ( Pruthvi), Water ( Jal), Fire ( Tej) , Air ( Vaayu) and Space ( Aakash).

BALANCE in these Mahabhutas maintain Nature. But imbalance in these Mahabhutas lead to natural calamities like earthquake, cyclone etc. Nature tries to maintain this balance by making changes to restore balance in mahabhutas. For example- In summer season HEAT increases, when heat increases alot by the end of season, then nature pours down water and the season changes to rainy season and nature thus maintains its balance.

On same principles, our body is also made up of these basic five elements. Balance in these mahabhutas is HEALTH. And imbalance in these mahabhutas causes DISEASE. Our rishis studied what impact these changes in nature has on our body , and advised a set of SEASONAL changes in diet and routine called as HRITUCHARYA following which we could keep mahabhutas in our body in balance and enjoy Health.

NATURE changes itself to maintain balance in mahabhutas . So with change in nature, if we will follow the changes advised by our rishis i.e. HRITUCHARYA , then we too will be able to maintain balance in mahabhutas in our body and thus remain HEALTHY.

IMMUNITY is nothing but remaining HEALTHY. So this HRITUCHARYA can be coined in today’s term as immunity. Immunity can’t be just a tablet or kadha which will keep you healthy, it has to be a full diet and lifestyle guideline according to seasonal change.

AYURVEDA is a science and it brings immense joy and respect towards those enlightened rishis who have framed so much detailed health design for us. Its our ignorence that we don’t follow their advices and keep on running after shortcuts and inviting dozens of disease.

NATURE also helps us in all possible ways to maintain health. It provide us with those fruits and vegetables which will help maintain balance / health in that season. For example- in summer season, there is alot of heat in environment, water is lost through perspiration…..so nature provides us with all juicy , pulpy fruits in this season .In rainy season, appetite is less and there is alot water in nature so nature stops providing fruits. So health can’t be achieved by eating everything in all seasons ( as now a days , everything , is grown forcibly and made available in all seasons)…..but health is achieved by changing according to season and accepting what is provided by nature in that season.

Such are the wonders of NATURE and AYURVEDA , who are providing everything to keep us healthy. But we run after advertisements , shortcuts and some magic immunity pills.

So immunity is following HRITUCHARYA and eating seasonal food.

Now you know, immunity boosters can’t be same for all seasons. LIFE IS CHANGE .So if we too keep changing our lifestyle in tune with nature……immunity will be high always.

I hope you could gather a wider perspective about looking at immnity from this article. And this knowledge will help you in making correct choices.

I will write down in detail about these HRITUCHARYAS told by ayurveda in my coming blogs soon.

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy, Stay blessed
