Understand The Benefits of Cooking in Iron Utensils Based on Ayurveda

Image
The Vedic philosophy teaches us the idea of “Anna Brahma”, which means “Food as God”.
This description is a symbolic statement made by the poetic ancestors of India. It symbolizes the importance of food to life – suggesting it is as essential as God is to life. For this reason, our ancient science also gives immense importance to the metals that our cooking utensils were made of. Traditional Ayurveda cooking methods were carefully developed to prepare the best quality and most non-toxic foods. 
Cooking in the right kind of vessels can actually make you healthier!While modern living has made us turn towards the more convenient steel, glass and non-stick cookware, old-school utensils are noted to hold therapeutic benefits, whether you use them for cooking, or to eat your meals.

Glass and Steel are fairly neutral, but coated or non-stick pans, aluminium cookware could be detrimental to the health. While it would be rather inconvenient to completely replace your cookware but you can still…

Yoga Nidra Rejuvenates Your Mind

Image
Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. It brings deep rest to the body and mind. It not only rejuvenates your mind but also adds vigor to the body. It’s a good idea to end your daily yoga practice with Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep.
Yoga nidra (Sanskrit: योग निद्रा) or yogic sleep) is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light withdrawal of the 5 senses (pratyahara) with four of his or her senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. The yogic goal of both pa…

Ayurveda Perspective on Cholesterol and How To Cure It Naturally!

Image
Ayurveda on Cholesterol It's important to understand that fat tissue (cholesterol) in itself is not bad, and is actually essential for the body to function properly. So in the Ayurveda perspective, the production of cholesterol does not necessarily need to be lessened, but it needs to be balanced. When the digestion is balanced and healthy, then the body produces the right amount of cholesterol, in the right proportion to nourish the body. 
For instance, the creation of healthy body tissue (dhatu) requires a brightly-burning digestive fire, or metabolic process. A strong agni is equally important in maintaining balance in the doshas and malas.    
Therefore, when digestion, assimilation and elimination are balanced, fat tissue and cholesterol will also be balanced.
What causes cholesterol function to become imbalanced? Digestion depends on the strength of the digestive fire (agni). Digestive fire is sustained with the fuel of wholesome foods and drinks. If we eat too little, or if…
