Detox – Ayurvedic perspective

yoga-702696_1280

Ayurveda as a medical system is quite surprising. How? First of all, it prefers to maintain health rather than to cure disease. Isn’t it genius? Why heal when you can make sure your patient doesn’t fall sick in the first place? How to maintain health? Ayurveda has few answers to that and detox is one of them. And that’s what this post is about.  Continue reading

Spring is finally here! 🌷🌼🌿
What does ayurveda say about it, how to live?
Ayurveda is an ancient medical system which prefers prevention over healing, thus our daily routine (diet, sport, etc..) has to change together with the change of seasons.
I wrote about the ayurvedic recommendations on the blog last ear so I recommend you have a look at it again.
Enjoy the read and share this knowledge with family and friends.

Ayurvedic red lentil dal

dal-roti

Dal is one of the most commonly consumed dishes in Ayurveda and in northern India. Dal is a soup made form red lentils (or any lentils in fact), but in India the word “dal”  also means lentils.

Up to this day, whenever I plan on going beck to northern India, I get mentally ready for large amounts of dal! But when I’m not in India,  India is on my plate. Continue reading

The soup has all the six Ayurvedic tastes in it, and therefore it can be safely called Ayurvedic soup. You can read more about Ayurveda in my post here.
