Is your weekend getaway causing you more pain than pleasure?

 

In our hectic schedules, it seems that life begins on Friday evening. We slog tirelessly for the whole week with the lure of weekend dragging us somehow. As the weekend comes near, we start making plans with our friends or family. Road trips, adventure sports, partying all night long.. Weekend getaways are in the latest fad in our lives.

It is believed that getting away for the weekend rejuvenates you and refreshes your soul for the week looming ahead. But even after enjoying to the max, did you still feel tired on Monday mornings? As mysterious as it may sound, but your mini-vacation can bring a surprising level of  fatigue along with it.

So what could be the reason behind it?

Travelling

Even though a great amount of zeal and enthusiasm pumps in to you when you start your journey towards your weekend getaway, the trip actually wears you out. Even if you are driving your own vehicle or opting for public transport, it just means adding fatigue to your energy levels. You might argue that you get to rest once you reach there, but don’t forget the return journey that takes the same time and the same energy to reach home.

Daytime naps

Post lunch naps on Sunday is familiar to most of us. Don’t blame the food. Whether you eat or not, when you take a nap, your body clock sets itself to the mid afternoon dip which creates a lull in your alertness for that time period. And getting a sound sleep in the afternoon automatically means unable to sleep at night. Thus, you will start your week with an incomplete sleep schedule and a dip in the energy levels in the afternoon with your body craving for a nap.

Alcohol

Weekend or holidays mean drinking a lot more alcohol, which can have an extreme impact on the quality of your sleep. It is surprising that many people have no idea that booze can impact on your sleep for some time after you’ve consumed it. Binge drinking can muck up melatonin, the hormone that makes us feel sleepy, for maybe the next five or seven days and nights. To minimize this, try leaving some time – ideally a few hours – between having a couple of alcoholic drinks and going to bed.

Eating habits

The holiday season is when everybody eases down on their strict diet and exercise regime. We tend to eat more than normal. As we visit a new place, it is obvious that we feast on the local food specials. So if you eat spicy food, it can cause indigestion affecting your sleep. Also sweet food items don’t let you go off so easily. Eating desserts before bed can give you a sugar high making you feel stimulated.

So, if not spent properly, your weekend fun could cause you more stress and trouble. So why waste your time and money on something that will make you groggy and irritated for the next whole week. Instead, you can visit Ayurvedic Village, a haven to distress and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul with our authentic Ayurvedic treatments. A holiday that will help you get back to your life smoothly.

Cow milk in Ayurvedic treatments

 

The practice of integrating natural products in Ayurveda has been followed since ages. The motive behind it is to mesh the benefits of the products with Ayurveda to heighten the experience for the patients to a new level. One such product is cow milk. Sweet in taste, this dairy item has a cooling effect on the body and mind. It improves Ojas, which is responsible for boosting immunity and nourishes body tissues.

So today we bring you the benefits of cow milk when incorporated in Ayurveda.

  1. With herbs

Not all people have the same strength against natural herbs. The weak ones or children could have harmful effects against pungent and hot herbs. These herbs are processed with cow milk as it lowers the pungency along with adding extra nutritional quality of milk. Milk acts as a fat and water soluble media for the active principles in the herb.

  1. With medicated oils

Cow milk is added to Ayurvedic oils to elevate its benefits. For example, it works great to calm burning sensations or when added in oil for massage against degenerative diseases like Osteoarthritis or processed along with nasyam. In addition, it is heals nerve irritation and pain, strengthens muscles and ligament tissues.

  1. In Shirodhara

As we know, in Shirodhara therapy, liquid is flown continuously over your forehead in a uniform manner. However, for Vata and Pita imbalances like headaches and dizziness, milk is used. This treatment is underwent in accordance to the determination of bodily dosha and corresponding clinical condition as observed by the Ayurvedic physician.

  1. In Basti

Basti is performed to cleanse the toxins out of the body and bringing it back to normal and regaining the levels of vitality. Kshira basti is a type of basti wherein milk is used along with ayurvedic oils and herbs. Before this basti is given, instead of a regular meal you are given to eat a combo of milk and rice. Milk processed with herbs is used for Basti in many acid peptic disorders, in Ayurveda.

  1. In rejuvenation therapy

At Ayurvedic Village, various rejuvenation packages are available. Cow milk is administered as the only diet throughout the day. Cow milk along with cooked rice is the diet of choice while administering many other rejuvenation medicines such as Bramha Rasayan and Chyawanprash. The milk supports the anti-ageing qualities of the rasayana medicines, and also nullifies the hot properties of the medicines.

Are you meditating right?

 

Meditation is an art. It is a way of living. The ones who practice meditation daily have experienced amazing results and health benefits like strong focus, increased concentration, relief from anxiety and a sense of peace in their life. However, what is sad that many people start with the practice of meditation with wrong notions and don’t stick to it since they fail to see any outcomes.

If you start with an idea of how your meditation sessions are supposed to be, then probably you will find yourself far away from the actual benefits of it. So let’s ask ourselves the following questions to see if you are meditating right?

  1. Are you trying to stop your thoughts and focus on one thing?

Meditation doesn’t mean having no thoughts at all. If you try to stop thinking, then it is going to stress your mind more. For people who have a lot going on in their minds, stopping their thoughts is not possible. Instead, you should observe your thoughts in a way so you can control your mind not to get carried away by it.

  1. Do you meditate in only a particular position?

There has been a preconceived notion that one is supposed to meditate sitting cross-legged on a fancy cushion. However, this is not true. Many a times, people find it difficult to meditate because they are unable to sit in that position. Sit any way you are comfortable and let your thoughts flow. That is how you will find ultimate relaxation.

  1. Do you need a quiet place to meditate?

Meditation doesn’t mean finding a quiet place, it is about quieting our mind. Assuming that the noises and voices surrounding you will cause distractions for your meditation is wrong. We say that rather use those sounds to bring a deeper sense of awareness in your mind. So next time, don’t let the location stop you from meditating.

  1. Have you allotted a certain time for meditation?

The biggest mistake any amatuer does is allocating a certain duration and time of the day for meditation. Thinking that only 30 mins or an hour daily will reap benefits. Not that meditating for 30 minutes is not right. Though it is quite favourable, believing firmly that anything less is not worthwhile. And that’s how we miss our sessions on busy days as we couldn’t find the time. Sometimes, even 5 minutes is enough!

  1. Are you expecting a certain outcome?

The results of meditation are not instantly visible. Hence, many people give up after a week or so, thinking that it is of no use. While on the other hand, there are those who read it somewhere or heard it from someone that how meditation helps to increase their memory power or improve focus and quit when something miraculous doesn’t happen. Meditation isn’t about achieving something, it is about observing and just being.

Free Medical Camp by Ayurvedic Village on Independence day

 

Our country celebrates 69th Independence day this Saturday. However, many people in our country are still struggling for access to basic health care.

After many successful medical camps in the recent history, Ayurvedic Village is back with yet another one. The premium wellness centre believes in giving back to the society in whichever way they can. In the past, hundreds of people have been benefited with Ayurvedic Village’s free medical camps. Hence, on the occasion of Independence day, we are organizing a free blood sugar and blood pressure check-up drive on 15 and 16 August between 8 AM to 6 PM at our Sanpada therapy Centre.

The doctors will examine each patient individually, collect their records, health history and diagnose for any weakness or ailments.

Also, the camp looks forward to propagate the awareness of the benefits of Ayurveda among the masses. If needed, every patient will be educated about the science of Ayurveda and prescribed Ayurvedic treatments for their health issues. They aim to resolve general queries of the people regarding their ailments and how Ayurveda works wonders for it.

Monsoon is considered as an ideal time to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul through Ayurveda. During the rainy season, Ayurvedic Gurus encourage to eat Karkidaka Kanji which will be distributed freely to all who come to the camp.

Ayurvedic Village’s Seminar for Geriatric Care at Taj Mahal Palace Hotel

 

Recently Ayurvedic Village held a seminar for elderly patrons and medical professionals in Ayurveda at Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai on Thursday, June 11, 2015. The motive behind the event was to enhance conversation around geriatrics and spread awareness about it. The event provided a platform for many elderly patrons to interact one-on-one with health practitioners. The experts imparted knowledge about how Ayurveda is helpful for disorders affecting older adults.

India is one of the most populous countries in the world. Providing health care and other services that aid older adults will undoubtedly continue to play a critical role in our country’s health care for the foreseeable future.

 

One of the driving forces behind this essential initiative is our country’s expanding geriatric population. The number of people in the world aged 60 and above is expected to grow past 2 billion by the year 2050. They suffer from various health problems such as joint pains, hypothermia, dementia, Alzheimer’s and many more. Ayurvedic Village’s geriatric procedures are aimed to cure the physical, emotional and behavioral disturbances with the help of well-planned Ayurvedic Chikitsa treatments. It aims at revitalizing the body tissues for a youthful being.

 

The objective of geriatric medicine which is in tune with the Indian philosophy is essentially. “Longer life with lesser disease and painless death” that is, a self sufficient life followed by a peaceful death.

 

Since aging doesn’t always come naturally to all, the seminar addressed the physical dynamics of aging, such as muscle atrophy and the ways to combat it. It also discussed what skilled practitioners at Ayurvedic Village can do to help caregivers deal with the ever-changing situation of caring for a person with a neuro-cognitive disorder. While living longer is an acknowledged indicator of developmental success, it demands considerable planning and policy choices, besides fostering a new caring culture is what Ayurvedic Village professionals suggested at the seminar.
