An industry which is supported on the backbone of our country’s beliefs, Ayurveda has quickly gained popularity among the masses due to the aging population and a rise in the youth which is health conscious. Ayurveda has now become a $4.4 billion worth market. It has steadily grown by more than 16% and will do so till 2025.
That’s awesome. But, what is Ayurveda?
Well, Ayurveda can be defined as Ayur meaning life and veda meaning science. It can be understood as science of life. Ayurveda in itself can be divided into various categories, ranging from home remedies, way of life, to over the counter medicines and even treatments.
How can one adopt this lifestyle?
We all live a pretty hectic life, with one day just overlapping with another. We are also prone to many more ailments such as stress, headaches and overall anxiety. Ayurveda can help cure these by using home remedies which can be found at home. These remedies also ensure that no chemicals enter your body as would be the case if you took allopathy.
Here are a few home remedies that could be useful:
- Headaches – Squeeze the juice of 3-4 lemon slices in a cup of tea and drink rapidly.
- High Blood Pressure – A tablespoon each of fresh Amla juice and honey mixed together should be taken every morning to maintain the blood pressure.
- Bloating – Mix a teaspoon of honey with juice created by half a lime along with water and take this mixture in regular intervals.
- Common Cold – Mix half a teaspoon of honey with half a teaspoon of ginger juice and take 3 times a day
These are just few remedies for some common ailments. Ayurveda prescribes to many more aspects such as Ayurvedic Diet, Ayurvedic Massage, Ayurvedic herbs and so much more.
Adopting a lifestyle which focuses on home-remedies, meditation, yoga and self living is difficult, but not impossible. The benefits are manifold in comparison to living a life filled with chemicals and expensive treatments.
The choice is pretty evident, isn’t it?
