Feel Energized with Positive Pranic Food

Image
“You are what you eat! Literally, our cells, our bones, our tissues, and organs are built from the nourishment that we provide our body through the foods that we eat. Food may be perceived as external, but the moment it enters our mouths, it becomes the fabric of our physical, energetic and emotional bodies: our individual self”. With this in mind, it is easy to see the importance of proper diet. 

Food is essential to life, your life, and the kinds of food you eat directly correlates to the intelligence of your body, to your ability to experience higher states of awareness, and to maintain God-Realization.




Prana is the vital energy present in fresh food and pure air that we breathe. One of the reasons for eating is to imbibe prana, so you want to choose foods that are high in prana.


Incorporating more fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet will give you an immediate energy boost. It's also important to cut the vegetables and cook them fresh at every meal. Buying pre-cut vegetables…

Amazing Benefits of Neem Leaves

In the world of Ayurveda, neem is a popular medicinal herb that’s been part of traditional remedies that date back almost 5000 years. Also known as Azadirachta Indica in English or ‘Neemba’ in Sanskrit, the neem tree is a really good example of how nature holds both the problem and the cure. It’s home to more than 130 different biologically active compounds! No wonder it’s such an effective anti-viral and anti-bacterial, along with being a powerful immuno-stimulant.
Neem leaves are widely sought after and are a major industry in the subcontinents, as these valuable leaves can be used for many different things. The oil from the leaves can be extracted and used in a wide variety of medicines, while the leaves can be dried and used as an herb or even as a pest repellent.

Impressive Benefits of Indian Superfood Ghee (Clarified Butter)

Image
Ghee is a powerhouse of vitamins and acids which promote good health. Ghee is the concentrated residue of pure fats that remains. It has a distinct nutty taste, and contains no trace of milk proteins, sugars or water. It is one of the highest food sources of butyric acid and is bursting with vitamins and fatty acids, both unsaturated and saturated. It is also loaded with omega 3 and 9. Similar to butter, ghee must be consumed in moderation - no more than 3 or 4 teaspoons daily. Too much ghee can produce harmful effects. In today’s video, we will describe eight health benefits of including ghee in your diet.

The Benefits of Ayurveda Oils & Daily Massage

Image
Traditional Ayurveda encourages vitality, health and longevity. The actual practice is largely based on prevention, rather than cure. At the core of prevention is the everyday custom of personal health care – a type of regular health maintenance. Fundamental to this is daily self massage, known as abhyanga.Massage with Ayurvedic oils can relieve your mind and body from many kinds of stresses and toxic build ups. Regular self massage rejuvenates your entire physical structure and promotes mental relaxation. Ancient Indian texts written 5000 years ago state that ‘a person with a view to preserving and promoting positive health should use massage therapy every day’.

Daily self massage with Ayurvedic oils is a positive way of unlocking the body’s innate healing ability, revitalising the body and mind and empowers you to maintain your body’s optimum health.

Fasting Benefits As Per Ayurveda and Basic Guidelines

Image
Fasting purifies both body and the mind. The fasting process mainly helps in removing the body of accumulated toxins. With fasting, the body gets sufficient time to relax, purge out toxic matters and grant a new, or rather renewed lease of life to the body organs. In order to have a successful and complete fast, the ‘will’ to do must be supported by strong determination.

FASTING IN AYURVEDAEvery day of every week, we tend to put our digestion and metabolism under strain:
We eat when we're stressedWe eat on the runWe overeatWe skip mealsWe eat at irregular timesWe eat bad food combinationsWe eat heavy foods that are difficult to digestWe eat our next meal before our previous meal has digestedWe eat too much, too late at nightBasically, unless we live a very peaceful, contained, strict or physically active life, caring for our digestion every day, at every meal, is a challenge.





As a result
, it is somewhat inevitable that our digestive fire (referred to as Agni) will become imbalanced,…
