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… 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

DO YOU KNOW SCIENCE BEHIND CHATURMAAS ? (Health Mantra – 02) Blog – 30.

Do you know that there is science behind all festivals and rituals?

“Chaturmaas also has science behind it ?”

In early days ,according to “ Varna System” only Brahmins knew all the Shatra (Knowledge /Science).So to maintain health and well being of other varnya people who never read shastra…..Shatra teachings were told with Dharma and people were asked to follow Dharma.

So that all  people followed dharma and indirectly followed shatra and remained healthy.

So what is science behind Chaturmas ?

Chatu means– 4 four and Maas means – month

Chaturmas means 4 months of rainy days.

Chaturmas marks the start of rainy day. As rain starts on different dates in different states so the chaturmas dates vary in all states.

According to ayurveda, our digestion is governed by sun.In rainy days, sun most of the time is covered with clouds. So in rainy days, our digestive power is poor/ weak..

If we consume heavy to digest food or large quantity food in this season, then as digestive power is less , we tend to fall sick with cough, cold ,loose motion ,vomiting etc.

So the science behind chaurmas is

          “Do fasting in Chaturmas”

Fasting /upwas means- Eat light food , Eat less quantity food.

So it we eat light and less quantity food then our digestive power remains good and so does our health .

Therefore almost all the fasts of the year are kept by dharma in rainy days so that we follow them and indirectly follow science and thus remain healthy .

So Health Mantra no – 2 is “Do fasting in rainy days to remain healthy” .

But fasting should be done properly to avail it benefits .“ How to do fasting?” will be discussed in our next blog.

Till then keep discovering science behind rituals and festivals ….

Stay HEALTHY , Stay BLESSED.
