It's a way of living that brings you balance
Like I said, Ayurveda gives you personal tools in all different kind of subjects. First of all there is a huge emphasis on nutrition as in the end we all become what we eat. Meaning that our tissues (blood, lymph, muscle, etc.) are build from the elements we take out of our food.
So that is why nutrition is so very important, but often we forget this as we have learned to only look from the outside in this Western society. Am I skinny enough, is my skin okay, is my hair in good condition, etc. Of course this is a nice side effect of good nutrition, but health (at least to me!) has the biggest priority in life. And you know what the best thing is about an Ayurvedic diet? It is not static at all as it changes constantly according to your needs at that particular moment. Meaning there are no hard rules, there is nothing you have to exclude from your diet forever and you can flow with the seasons. That sounds great isn’t it? And if you think about it: why should you follow a new diet of which we do not yet know the results from as this diet is here for over thousands of years and already backed up by scientific proof..?! Okay, so nutrition is one thing to look after.
But there is so much more! Your sleep for example. Huge part of Ayurveda, as it is in this time that our body rejuvenates and repairs itself. We all know that poor sleep among all other things weakens our immune system, reduces concentration and is strongly linked to weight gain. Ayurveda can help you with an healthy sleep routine making your days more joyful.
The biggest priority in life is your health!
Ayurveda can also help you by picking the best supportive exercise for you. Again, not dogmatic and static, but an exercise that boosts your energy and improves your mood at that particular moment.
If I would go on with all Ayurveda can offer you to live a more balanced life you would probably not even started to read this section as it would have looked endless to you. So therefore I am not going into all there is, that I will do in my different writings on this website and on my instagram.
Anyway, there is one important thing that Ayurveda teaches us that I really need to stipulate here and that is the importance of a healthy digestion. Digestion is important because your body needs nutrients (like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals) from food and drinks to work properly and stay healthy. It is your digestive system that breaks down food and drinks and takes out smaller molecules which the body uses for building new tissues, energy and cell repair. Once foods are broken into small enough parts, your body can absorb and move the nutrients to where they are needed. The waste products of digestion will go into your large intestine and become a stool. Eliminating waste products is very important, because if it stays in your body they will become toxic and cause disease. That is why it is so important that you can poop everyday. Another thing that Ayurveda will help you with. Believe me this will make you feel so much lighter!
You see? I am very enthusiastic about how Ayurveda can help you and my mission is to make you at least as enthusiastic as I am: giving you the opportunity to live your life in its full potential! So that is why I encourage you to start today. Take it easy and all will come!
