Have you recently ended up feeling a bit tired and sluggish? Have you recently encountered a sudden drop in your energy? Even if you ate a lot the whole day, have you ever felt a sudden need for a quick nap? Have you ever given this a thought?
Although you may be careful of the regularity of your meals you might not get the adequate energy. You might eat a lot but are the meals you are taking are really enough for you? It is always far beyond what just meets the eyes. After taking a careful diet it is obvious to think the reason for lack of expected energy and growth.
I often see people complaining about the lethargic day even after a strict daily routine. My ears are really painful to listen to the kids suffering from unwanted stress and growth issues at such a young age.
As it rightly said that it is never too late to start with. There is always a reason hidden with a perfect solution.
I always motivate people to see beyond what they just do. Eating and exercising alone won’t make any difference. In today’s world of adulteration and pollution what is necessary is the right diet and the right exercise.
Even though we are careful, our body is exposed to a lot more pollutants than we think.
What is the reason behind this unknown illness?
Ayurveda says that our digestive power is the only thing we need to tame. Our body is a composition of natural components that need to be maintained.
Our body is a holy grail of three Doshas resonating with the natural vibration running inside our body.
The activities that we find healthy are not actually healthy today. The food we eat, the air we breathe and the routine we follow are not as pure as we think.
Many times, the quality of food is not a bigger issue than the type of food habits. In this time bound era, we have shifted a lot towards shortcuts.
For instance, instead of taking the right three meals a day we often bend more towards quick or junk food to save time. Even I have even seen parents serving a quick breakfast to hurry their children up for their schools.
This degrading food habit has become the major cause of illness.
Let us start with uncovering the facts of Ayurveda for a Healthy Lifestyle:
Body-The temple of nature-says Ayurveda!
Our body is just like a temple or a place where you pay homage to God. This is not a myth but a reason that gives you a reason to keep it pure.
Unhealthy food and contaminated air along with perilous daily habits kill our purity by accumulating toxins inside us. As a tall order, today the toxin build-up has become a very common issue in our lives. We often ignore this and keep running in our daily unhealthy schedule. This ignorance always causes a serious state of illness that bothers us in the long term.
Running after over the counter treatments or daily long appointments of doctors are all secondary. The real remedy is right inside your body. Toxins block our energy channels and result in clogging our chakras, the centers of life-source present inside our body. The blocked energy centers hinder the smooth functioning of our internal organs resulting in dysfunctioning or various emotional and physical ailments.
