Sattva – A positive Attitude

Ayurveda described thre physicall dosha on which our physical health build up.They are Vayu, Pitta and Kapha.

Likewise there is three mental Doshas called – Sattva, Raj and Tama. Healthy status of mind depends on these three mental Doshas.

As Ayurveda says, your health and status of mind will be same as your thoughts and actions. Positive action-thoughts good health and harmony. Negative approach and bad thoughts makes you ill mentally as well as physically. Raj and Tama creates negative and bad atmosphere in mind.

Sattva is the impulse to evolve progress and go forward in life. It brings clarity, harmony and health.

Spending time in nature, meditation, yoga, practicing non-judgment and cultivating compassion, avoiding over-stimulation and eating pure foods are all ways to amplify and increase sattva.

Examples of Sattvic foods include Basmati rice, oats, rice and wheat; raw milk and freshly made yogurt; honey and jaggery; ghee and olive oil; most fruits in moderation, most vegetables (except mushrooms, garlic and raw onions); almonds, pine nuts and walnuts all in moderation; aduki beans, mung beans and tofu; aloe gel, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, fennel, ginger, turmeric, chamomile ashwagandha, astragalus, bhringaraj, calamus, comfrey, ginseng, gotu kola, jatamamsi, lotus, mint, rose, saffron, sage, shatavari, skullcap, triphala and mint. Avoid pungent spices.

How to Apply Hair Oil???

Applying oil to hair is one of the ways to improve hair strength and hair quality as per Ayurvedic principles. Apart from improving hair qualities, applying hair oil also has other benefits such as – sleep improvement, calmness of mind, remedy for headache etc. Based on the desired effects, the time and method of application of hair oil change…

Suppose you are taking head bath twice in a week, according to this rule, you may apply hair oil, twice a week, on the nights before the head bath day.

Applying hair oil on the day, after bath is not desirable because, the oil may attract dust over the hairs, when you go out in Sun.

But if you are at home only and love applying hair oil during day, only a minimum quantity of one teaspoon is sufficient. Apply directly to hair roots.

For the purpose of hair growth, the oil can be applied to the hair root, scalp and to the length of hair.

Some people heat the oil in water bath, before application, which is perfectly fine, provided it is only mild heat.

People with headache, red colored rashes on the scalp, people with pitta imbalance should not opt for hot oil hair treatment.

If you are accustomed to apply hair oil daily, then a little quantity of hair oil can be applied daily in the morning. As a general rule, it is better not to expose hair to direct sunlight or dust, especially after applying hair oil.

Here at our clinic we prepare various types of Hair oil according to Diseases and necessary. For example, patient of scalp-Psoriasis need special Ayurvedic Hair oil. Likewise we provides Ayurveda Hair oil for Healthy hair, Dandruff, Alopecia, Headache,  Long hair, etc etc…!

Keep in mind that internal medication is very essential to give strength and nourishment to hair, We always recommends proper food Diet and Special internal Ayurveda Medicine and Herb-o-mineral combination for such Patients. We also recommends panchkarma like Shirodhara, Shirobasti and Nasyam treatments for such Hair problems. Panchkarma gives more beneficial result in such cases.

There is no use of common hir oil which is available in markets, one need special medicated hair oil according to their hair type and Diseases.

Ayurveda And Bhagwad Gita

Recently i came through Bhagwad Gita ‘s some Shlock..which says same opinion as Ayurveda science provide.

Shri Bhagwad Gita is the one of the best Holy book of Ancient India, it provide the information of Like n our Karma. Have a look at following Shloks—

युक्ताहारविहारस्य युक्तचेष्टस्य कर्मसु ।
युक्तस्वप्नावबोधस्य योगो भवति दुःखहा ।।

“Yoga becomes the destroyer of pain for him who is always moderate in eating and recreation (such as walking, etc.), who is moderate in exertion in actions, who is moderate in sleep and wakefulness.” (Gita: 6.17)It does not just speak of physical but mental health also.

सुखं वा यदि वा दुःखं स योगी परमो मतः ।

“He who judges of pleasure or pain everywhere, by the same standard as he applies to himself, that Yogi, O Arjuna, is regarded as the highest.” (Gita: 6.32)

Simle Tips during Winter

As the temperatures drop our appetites increase in order to prepare for Winter.

During this time, we should eat foods that are warm, oily, heavy, sweet, sour and salty as these will pacify vata and build our ojas (immunity and hardiness).
Some foods that are beneficial to focus on are honey, whole grains, fresh whole milk or yogurt, soups,cooked apple, citrus, sesame oil, ghee, squash, dates, sweet potato, beets, other root vegetables, mung beans, nuts and seeds. Most spices are good especially those that are warming like cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, ginger and pepper.

Five universal Elements – Panch Mahabhootas

Today more than 100 elements have been detected by modern scientists. These are the basic elements like; hydrogen, carbon, sodium etc; which unite together to create all the beings, living or non living of our world. Presence of any one of these relative to other elements in any material will decide its physical and chemical qualities and its function in the ecological system of ours.

According to Ayurveda everything in Universe is poised of the Panchmahabhootas – Aakash , Vayu , Teja or Agni , Jala and Prithvi.

These are mixed in countless varieties of relative magnitude such that each form of matter is distinctly unique. Although each element has a range of attributes, only some get evident in particular situations. Constantly changing and interacting with each other, they craft a situation of full of life flux that keeps the world going. This all happens under the control of TriGunas.

In a simple, single living cell for example the Pruthvi element predominates by giving structure to the cell. The Jal element is present in the cytoplasm or the liquid within the cell membrane. The Agni element regulates the metabolic processes regulating the cell. The Vayu element is the gaseous part therein. The space occupied by the cell denotes the presence of ether, the Aakash In the case of a complex, multi-cellular organism as a human being for instance, Akash corresponds to spaces within the body (mouth, nostrils, abdomen etc.); Vayu denotes the movement (essentially muscular but nervous system also); Agni controls the functioning of enzymes (intelligence, digestive system, metabolism); Jala is in all body fluids (as plasha, saliva, digestive juices); and Prithvi manifests itself in the solid structure of the body (bones, teeth, flesh, hair et al)

The Panchmahabhootas therefore serve as the foundation of all diagnosis and treatment modalities in Ayurveda and has served as a most valuable theory for physicians to detect and treat illness of the body and mind successfully.

  • Aakash – All body channels, working for the movement of the nutrients and all other fluids. Vacuumed organs of the body are made of Akash.
  • Vayu – Governs inhalation, exhalation, opening and closing of eyelids, locomotion and other motor functions.
  • Agni – Coarse and bright, pedals temperature and luster of body color. Digestion and assimilation of food is done by it inside the body.
  • Jal – The adhesive force and fluid part of the body is Jal, making things supple and smooth.
  • Pruthvi – Heavy, immobile, compact and rough. Controls organs as teeth, nails, flesh, skin, tendons and muscles. Sweet taste.

Together formation of Mahabhootas makes a six different taste. And this tastes or Ras can increase or decrease the level of Dosha in our body. All this is very essential in the treatments part of Ayurveda. HErbs and Combination medciataion are based n this Concepts of Mahabhootas – RAs n all.

This are just for the understating to common people. We cant correlate Pruthvi mahabhoot to Earth, or Jal mahabhoot to Water….!  Because this terminology is very waste, and this is not so easy to understand of every individuals. Only Ayurveda Scholars/students who knows all terminology and Fundamental rules of Ayurveda can recognize all this Five elements.

If Percentile involvement of Panchmahabhootas is known, an individual can do better with the health. Sushruta tells in His great text of Ayurveda- “There are five Prakrutis according to the involvement of these five in the body. At Atharvayurveda, we access your Prakruti according to the involvement of Panchamahabhootas also.

This information is just for knowledge and understanding that How big concept Ayurveda have and how waste science it it…!!!
