Thousands of years before modern medicine even began to take its first stumbling steps, the population of present-day India developed ayurveda. It is a holistic healing system with a very complex and knowledge-rich basis. It is still today, 9,000 years later, one of the world's most widely used natural and simultaneously sophisticated health systems. More than just a system for treating disease, ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a form of wisdom that is designed to help people stay healthy and with good energy in body and soul while realizing their full human potential. The two most important principles of ayurveda are "the mind and the body are tightly connected" and "Nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind".
The treatments in ayurveda are numerous and are always adapted to a personal assessment by a trained and professional Ayurvedic doctor. In aurveda, a lot of herbs, roots, plants, berries, nuts and the like are used to treat different conditions or improve specific mental processes. You may have heard of ashwagandha, arjunabark, turmeric (curcumin), ginger, bacopa monnieri, amla or shatavari? All are among the most important and used medications in ayurveda and have been for thousands of years. At the same time, all are proven effective in modern scientific studies.
Other treatments include massage and touch of various kinds with various beneficial oils such as almond oils. This is done to stimulate the flow of energy through the body's channels. The energy flow is called prana within Ayurvedic philosophy and Hindu faith and is the energy that according to these philosophies and religions flows through everything that we see and do not see and connect us all to one.
Ayurveda uses what nature offers us in the form of healing plants and our consciousness and observational skills as their tools for preventing, diagnosing and treating various mental and physical diseases and conditions. Yoga and meditation are two things that go hand in hand with ayurveda and create a brilliant starting point for a better health with more hurricane, more energy and greater motivation and joy.
The five elements
The five elements represent the most important fundamental concepts in ayurveda and represent the building blocks of nature and its qualities. The elements are water, fire, air, soil and ether. In the body, the elements represent different tissues and bodily functions. In the mind, the element represents different characteristics and in ayurvedic medicine, the elements determine the approach. Knowledge of the five elements is a cornerstone of ayurveda. According to Ayurvedic philosophy, a person who does not understand the elements can thoroughly understand ayurveda.
Tamara Jal – Tamra Jal
The use of copper bottles for drinking water and drinking water from copper vessels is named Tamara Jal, sometimes Tamra Jal, (therapeutic water in Sanskrit) within the ayurve and is widely known for its health benefits according to the oldest existing holistic medical science. Copper water is according to ayurveda energized and balancing for a large amount of conditions such as inflammations, stomach problems, constipation, nausea, copper deficiency, anxiety, irritation, depression and more. occurs due to the copper's unique ability to balance the body's three dosehas naturally (kapha, vata and pitta).
You may have wondered at some point why you feel tired and thirsty even though you drink enough water?
To make drinking water safe, water treatment plants use basic filtration systems to remove most pollutants. These systems make the water safe to drink, but they also destroy the vital life energy of the water according to Ayurvedic knowledge and drastically change its natural pH balance according to modern science. Once your drinking water has been treated, travelled long distances through water pipes and then comes down in your glass, it has lost much of its vitality and tastes "dead". As a result, the water we drink is not absorbed as easily by our cells according to ayurvedic medical tradition, which means that we want more. It ionizes, activates and balances pH, making the water "alive" again. This energy water is better absorbed by your cells and therefore improves hydration under the 9,000-year-old holistic healing system.
