The modern lifestyle leads to a growing number of medical hardships, inconveniences, diseases. In taking care of our health and well-being we are increasingly going back to the ancient traditional methods, which, in spite of the passing of the centuries retained their healing properties. All the more, the eastern wisdom is increasingly gaining validation in the western world. This includes Ayurveda, with in its comprehensive approach already helped many people regain their health.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine, which originated in India. The word ayurveda is composed of the words "ayus", which means "life" and "veda", which means "knowledge", "science". Ayurveda or the "Science of life" treats in a holistic way and teaches a person how to live healthy and in harmony with nature. It covers four aspects of the human being: the soul, the mind, emotions and body. Throughout history, Ayurveda remains an influential health-care system in South Asia. The basic principles of Ayurveda are based on universal laws of nature and the mutual interaction of man and nature, and therefore through the millennia development principles remain the same. The Ayurvedic lifestyle consists of a certain diet, regular and moderate exercise (yoga), meditation, relaxation, breathing exercises and other techniques, which should help harmonize man's mind, body and spirit.

Doshas

Ayurveda is based on three basic forces, known as doshas. Vata, Pitta and Kapha are the main elements of the body on which our health depends on. They are present in every cell of our bodies, but also in our psychological well-being, ways of communication and perception of the world. In the literal translation they mean air, bile and mucus, in a wider sense, however:

  • Vata is dry and dynamic and provides for the movement, excretion, respiration and speech,
  • Pitta is hot and oily, and is responsible for body temperature, hunger, thirst, energy and our will,
  • Kapha is heavy and slimy and takes care of perseverance, strength, stability and "lubricates" the joints and body cavities. The three doshas are present in all human beings, but usually one dosha dominates, sometimes two. Given to the dominant dosha different body types are known (Vata type, Pitta-Kapha type, etc.). According to the prevailing dosha, different body types (vata, pita-kapha type, etc.) are known. When the doshas are in imbalance we may experience inconveniences, nuisance or illness. When the doshas are in ratio, a person is healthy.

According to Ayurveda there are three main causes of disease:

  • incorrect identification of the intellect with the "I" and "mine",
  • the abuse of the human senses for pleasures, desires, greed, and selfishness,
  • inability to adapt to seasonal changes in nature, causing stress, impairment of digestion and imbalance of doshas.

Individual Approach

The consultation before any therapy is the base of treatment and with the Specialist in Ayurvedic Medicine it is mainly based on good observation. Therefore the Specialist asks a lot of questions and listens well. He does not use special diagnostic apparatus (with the exception of the apparatus for measuring blood pressure), as he works only with his own hands. The review is based on an in-depth personal interview where he asks about the general state of your health, with special emphasis on the lifestyle. Therefore, it is very important that you describe our habits – living, working, accommodation, nutrition (good and bad) – very accurately. He reviews the area of the abdomen, eyes, tongue, nails, skin and listens to the tone of your voice. When he collects all the necessary data, he analyzes them and acquaints you with recommendations on restoring the natural balance of doshas, which includes changes in lifestyle, especially in eating habits. The basic features of any further treatment, are oil massages and herbal treatments or purification, as well as yoga and meditation. The Doctor or Specialist in Ayurvedic Medicine develops an individual program for each guest, gives advice, what food to eat and which not, which relaxation techniques are appropriate for you, proposes therapy and at the same time determines a mix of oils and natural herbs as a dietary supplement. Throughout the course of treatment he monitors the patient closely and adapts the therapy. When you reach the balance of mind and body, his aim is achieved and your health is permanently improved.

Ayurvedic Diet

According to the Ayurveda traditions, in addition to what we enjoy, the manner in which we enjoy it play an important role. During nutrition we often think about problems and obligations, which is why our digestive energy is directed elsewhere. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of proper digestion, which is a source of health. A balanced Ayurvedic meal is enriched with herbs and spices, which enhance the taste, stimulate the digestive fire, improving the digestibility and absorption of the ingredients. With the correct combination and the amount of food eaten at certain parts of the day, you can maintain inner balance or even correct the imbalance that has occurred during the period when you were living unhealthy.

Tips:
  • do not mix raw and cooked food in one meal,
  • do not enjoy freshly prepared food together with remains of food,
  • eat slowly and chew every mouthful well,
  • one day a week devote to consuming only liquid foods to improve digestion and clean the intestine,
  • do not drink very cold water,
  • do not eat three hours before bedtime, because of the negative impact on sleep and digestion,
  • negative thoughts and feelings during the preparation of food affect the foods quality, so never criticize food during preparation and consumption.

Yoga

Ayurveda and yoga are inherent. Yoga means "unity" and is the science of life and the oldest comprehensive system of personal development, comprising body, mind and soul. It is based on five fundamental principles: proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet and positive thinking and meditation. Yoga is a unique method that combines movement with breathing and meditation techniques to calm the mind and our provide emotional rebalancing. In Thermana Laško we offer traditional Indian yoga, which is adapted to the knowledge and abilities of the practitioners.
