Spend This 31st Night with Ayurvedic wellness centre

2016 is coming to an end and we are all eager to usher in the New Year with great hope and enthusiasm. For most of us this is also the time for retrospection when we sit down and analyze all that happened during the year. Surprisingly, one thing common which we find in each of our lives, especially in the lives of those living in metropolitan cities, is the fast pace with which life is moving. Be it in the domestic life or professional, life seems to be travelling at a pace of light with little time for either the loved ones or even for ourselves. Everyone appears to be running in the rat race with no time to even admire the beauty of their surroundings. Spend your day with Ayurvedic village for Ayurvedic treatment and beauty treatment.

There is a need to change this a little bit in the coming year and what could be better time than the 31st December itself? Many of you by now would have planned or in the verge of finalizing a pub or lounge to spend the 31st night with close ones. However, what if you get a chance to spend the last day of 2016 differently, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, surrounded by greenery, with coconut and palm trees, tiny waterbeds? This may appear to be the scenic description of Kerala ‘God’s known country’.  But, this is not so.

Just 60 Km away from the city, there is an “Ayurvedic Village” where one can be at close proximity with nature. Surrounded by mesmerizing greenery, ‘Ayurvedic Village’ is the best place to relax de-stress and rejuvenate. Although known to be one of the best Ayurvedic wellness centers in India, one need not go only for various Ayurvedic wellness treatments. Even a short stay in the picturesque setting of the centre can re-energize your mind, body, and soul to the fullest. And perhaps 31st night is the best time to take that rejuvenating trip.

CELEBRATE NAVRATRI IN AYURVEDIC STYLE

 

According to Ayurveda, fasting is an effective way to ignite the digestive fire and burn away accumulated toxins from the body. It also eliminates gas, makes the body light and preserves overall health. However, in the name of fasting, many of us end up feasting on high calorie food during the nine days of Navratri. Ayurveda mainly focuses on a Sattvic diet consisting of fruits, milk and preparations made from vegetables to cleanse and detoxify your body. Here are some great tips that help keep your energy levels up while you fast during Navratri: 

  1. Make healthy food choices: Fasting is not an excuse to make up for not having your regular food by consuming on potato chips or other unhealthy snacks. Opt for fruits like apples, guavas and oranges that will keep your energy levels in check. Bananas also provide instant energy so keep some handy.
  1. Maintain fluid levels: To avoid getting dehydrated drink lots of water, herbal teas, vegetable juices and fruit juices during Navratri. During the fast, avoid food containing more spices or salt and use rock salt so that your body does not become weak during the fast.
  1. Prevent acidity: Not eating for extended period of time can cause acidity. Keep acidity in check by always having a handful of fruits or nuts to snack on through the day during the fast. It will provide you with energy throughout the day. Mid-day crunchies can keep those hunger pangs at bay.
  1. Use healthier alternatives: Sugar can be replaced with jaggery or honey. Spices contain antioxidants and are protective foods. They add health and give taste to food and helps in digestion. Jeera(cumin), Elaichi(cardamom) and Dhania(coriander) are known for their carminative action.
  1. Avoid Oily food: Avoid oily snacks like singhara or other fried snacks. Opting for grilled or baked food items is recommended if you aim to detoxify your body. Fruits and vegetables are healthier options to choose from.

Simple Ayurvedic habits for Cleansing and Detoxifying

In today’s modern world, cleansing and detoxifying have become quite popular.  With our toxic lifestyles, the intention behind this is well founded. So let’s incorporate some of the simple cleansing practices into our life with the help of these 4 simple cleansing tools:-

  1. Consume Green Leafy veggies like Spinach, Kale, Green Cabbage, Beet Greens, Watercress, etc.

These foods contain the bitter taste, which is mostly missing in our diets.  Green Leafy vegetables acts as a powerful detoxifying agent, which helps in reducing weight and water retention. With the diet today loaded hidden sugars, many people have become addicted and overeat foods with the sweet taste. This is one of the reasons why so many people have toxins today. So it is advised to lightly cook the greens with a pinch of turmeric and consume them.  Unless someone has a large vata imbalance, these greens can be consumed at least four times a week but are best cooked, not to be taken raw or cold as in a smoothie or juice.

  1. Use cooked apples, prunes and figs for breakfast to cleanse the bowels.

Having regular elimination is part of what brings the daily waste products out.  Prunes and Figs are well known to cleanse the bowels.  Soaking them overnight is ideal.  Another option is to cut an apple and cook them in 1/2 cup of water with 2-3 whole cloves on a low simmer covered until soft.  The cooked apples serves as a pre-biotic, providing food to nourish your intestinal in and out.  Ideally have the fruits for breakfast three times a week.

  1. Drink tea with mixture of Cumin-Coriander-Fennel seeds.

This tea has a mild diuretic action which cleanses the lymphatic tissue layer.  Those with more dryness in their body need to have less of it to avoid aggravating their inner dryness.  To prepare this tea take 1/3 tsp. each of dry roasted fennel, coriander and cumin seeds and steep in 1 cup of hot water for 4-6 minutes.

  1. Drink enough water throughout the day.

Water acts as a purifier which help in flushing out toxins while boosting immunity. Lack of hydration can create in building up of the toxins that can lead to diseases. Part of your daily cleansing should be proper consumption of water, ideally filtered and pure. Having warm water adds to deeper cleansing effect.

Managing Seasonal Allergies by keeping your Immunity System strong

  1. Digestive support.

Your digestive support plays an important role in the feeding all the tissues, cells, and organs in the body. Eating less processed foods & sugar and focusing on more whole foods is always preferred. But there are also other simple things that boost your digestive health such as making sure you’re cooking with spices which act as a fuel to your digestive system. Eating at regular times and not skipping meals keeps your digestive system well calibrated. And not taking in too much liquids, especially iced drinks, with meals prevents you from inadvertently putting out your digestive system.

2. Exercise. Doing exercise not only promotes your immunity system but also enhances digestion and strengthens your tissue metabolism. Do not do exercise beyond your capacity as it could result in weakening of your immune system.

3. Proper hydration. It plays an important role not only in the whole body but also in preventing the body’s membranes from getting dry. Excess dryness can trigger a response in the body to create more protective fluids such as sinus mucus to counter the dryness. Lack of hydration can create in building up of the toxins that can lead to diseases.

4. Stress support Stress plays a major part in depleting of the immune system. Breathing exercises are recommended to reduce stress in Ayurveda. Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. This is because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. The brain then sends this message to your body.

5. Proper sleep Researches show that people do best when they get a 6-8 hours sleep a day.Not enough sleep can give negative affects to the immune system. Having a healthy bedtime routine can mean- turning off electronics at least sixty minutes before bed, doing some gentle body stretches and taking five minutes to do deep breathing.

6. Massage Massage not only makes you feel relaxed but also helps in feeling energized throughout the day. Its helps in clearing off the stagnant lymph and toxins of the body and builds overall immunity system.

Ginger comes in the family of Zingiberaceae, to which also belong turmeric , cardamom and galangal and is probably native to southeastern Asia.
