Two Ayurvedic Gurus tell Parizaad Khan Sethi how to incorporate 3,000 –year-old teachings into 21st Century lifestyle.
Dr. Pratima Raichur preaches calm in New York, One of the most frenetic global cities. Practicing since 70s, the Ayurveic doctor has been sharing the ancient wisdom with clients who have a hectic 24/7 lifestyle. In contrast , Gita Ramesh, Ayurvedic practitioner and managing director at Kairali Ayurvedic Group, runs serene wellness retreats in India. Both belive that Ayurveda balances the mind, body and soul, and impart its teachings to followers.
- Educate yourself anout your dosha (constitution) to make correct food choices. “If your disha is vata, eat Pita should avoid soices, cheese, fired and fermented foods, while for kapha, everything should be light – like salads and greens.
- Eat fresh food- leftovers cause a toxic build up in the body.
- Don’t overhaul your whole lifestyle , follow Raichur’s small, sustainable changes. For instance, instead of dosha specific cooking for different people, use spices creatively. Pita-heavy ones can get cumin in their buttermilk, while for someone with flatulence, asafetida is the answer. Nutmeg, cinnamon, cumin and coriander are good for vata and pita while kapha is warmed by chilies, ginger, garlic and onion.
- Time your meals tight, according to Ramesh, breakfast in non-negotiable and dinner should always be lighter than lunch, such that the body can digest the meal before bed time. Always eat seasonal fruits and vegetables- they’re at the top of their game when in season.
- Eat according to your age says Raichur, as different ages have doshas attached to them. So when you are young eat like a kapha; move to pita- specific meals when you are middle aged, and after 50 vata starts increasing.
- Beauty reflects from inside out and a good diet leeads to a healthy, disease-free body, says Ramesh. Raichir prescribes pure essential oils mixed with vegetable oils to regenerate skin cells and nourish skin. The aromas of every essential oil affect our mind, so they sould be dosha-specific.” Vata needs warming oils like sesame , pita needs olive or coconut to cool and kapha benefits from a light , stimulating oil.
- Massage is Ayurveda’s answer tto anti-aging. ‘’Make a daily routine,’’ says Ramesh. Oil the body from top to toe, paying attention to your face and hair. Added bonus: “it’s an exercise by itself,’’ she points oiy. After a while shower with warm water, using herbal powders to wash off the oil. ‘’Massaging the scalp improves circulation and makes you sleep better, while rubbing the feet stimulates nerve endings,’’ says Raichur.
BREATHING AND MEDITATION
- Be great to the universe says Ramesh. Start with small prayer for the day that went by and ask for blessings for the present day.
- Raichur considers thoughts to be of prime importance because what we think we bring into our lives. ‘’We all get angry and frustrated bit it affects our liver. If you’re anxious, the kidneys get affected and if your’re always sad , the lungs are at risk’’
- Both practitioners recommend a few minutes of breathing exercises and meditation. Add 10 minutes of Kapalbhati and Anulom Vilom Pranayam (alternate nostril breathing) to your morning routine to oxygynate, stoke your digestive fire, and balance and centre yourself.
- Raichur’s recommendations for meditation are simple: the easiest way to focus on your breathing; close your eyes and experience the breathe going in and out. Or inhale and chant “Om’’ while exhaling. ‘’ If stray thoughs enter your mind, don’t fight them- just bring your attention back to your breathing rhythm.
