Yoga & Herbs: A Holistic Approach To Well Being
Ayurveda offers a fulfilling way to live a life. It sees every individual differently. In Ayurveda, the body is healthy when there is harmony between physical, mental and emotional state. After the pandemic, almost everyone is looking out for holistic approaches to stay healthy.
Being healthy is the state of mind. However, if you also get overwhelmed by choosing what is suitable for you or what kind of products you should use for holistic approaches, we are here to help. In this article, we tried to simplify the holistic process of well-being by including herbs and yoga in your routine.
In the modern era of medicines and cosmetics, we all look for a quick fix in our lives. We all need solutions that are easy, quick and do not need commitment. But this is not an example of a holistic approach. A holistic approach is not obtained successfully in one day; it needs a daily commitment of exercise and a healthy diet to heal your body from within. The best example is practicing yoga.
Yoga is a series of exercises for the overall well-being of your health. It is slow and yet impactful. By practicing yoga and breathing exercises like Pranayam, you can make your body flexible and free from fats. A holistic approach towards your body is everything. Adapting your body for doing Yoga and meditation will enlighten your senses and make bodily changes.
PHYSICAL HEALTH WITH HOLISTIC APPROACH
We ignore physical health unless we feel that something is not right in the body. However, responding to pain and discomfort and taking medication will only heal temporary problems. Indulge yourself in healthy eating habits and yoga exercises.
Indigestion is a common problem. A healthy gut boosts the immune system. Hence, healthy eating habits and a balanced diet will help in balancing the Doshas of the body and boost immunity in all seasons. However, when you combine Yoga and eating habits with your social environment and peaceful mental state, you can perpetuate into a healthy life cycle.
HERBS FOR BODY
We use many cosmetics and chemical products in our daily life that puts an impact on our holistic approach towards life. Practicing healthy oral care is extremely important for your body. By using natural and herbal products, you can create the perfect ritual for a healthy body. For example, you can include non-fluoride toothpaste in the morning oral care regime to kill the germs in the mouth.
A healthy mouth, teeth and breath are as crucial as a healthy gut. Therefore, the oral care regime should be practiced with a holistic approach for getting better results. For example, after brushing teeth, you can use herbal pulling mouthwash laced with essential and effective herbs like sesame oil. Using mouthwash is an old tradition in Ayurveda to cleanse the mouth, brighten teeth and treat bad breath.
Oil pulling is an age old practice to cleanse the mouth cavity with the use of oil. It whitens teeth, strengthen gums, prevents bad breath, detoxifies the body, improves digestion and prevents dryness of mouth, lips and throat. This practice should be followed first thing in the morning for effective results. Irimedadi is a popular traditional formulation for dental care in Ayurveda that has cleansing and anti microbial properties. It strengthens gums, teeth, protects the enamel and improves gingival health.
After a long day of work, we all need nourishment for the body. The massage oil is a natural and pure oil combination that is developed in a modern Ayurvedic way. The herbal blends in the oil help in rejuvenating the body, removing stretch marks that are ideal for moms and moms-to-be, removing dark spots and relieving itching sensations. You can regularly use the blended oil after bathing on your belly for eliminating stretch marks.
Our best recommendation is to use Herbostra’s de-stress massage oil that has innovatively formulated oils containing pure and potent sun dried herbs implemented using Probiotic Technology.
