UDVARTAN ( powder massage)

UDVARTAN ( powder massage) The word Udvartana is largely used for the most famous body treatment in Ayurveda to lose weight. Udvartan is a body toning program, with application of a combination of prescribed herbal powder and oil on the entire body .It is used in the treatment to reduce fat and strengthen the body, at the same time taking care that the body does not become too rough and dry in the whole process. How does the Treatment of Udvartana work? In the treatment of Udvartana, we use herbal powders (in form of oils or dry powders) that are dry and rough in nature and hot in potency.
The oil taken for Udvartana is sesame-based, which is hot in potency and is infused with herbs which create lightness, dryness, roughness, remove the blockages and stiffness, and also have a ‘cutting or liquefying action’ on the fat tissue. This oil also takes care that the skin does not become dry superficially and remains soft and supple after the treatment.

AYURVEDIC MEDICINE TO TREAT CANCER

AYURVEDIC MEDICINE TO TREAT CANCER More than 200 herbs and plants are used in Ayurvedic medicine. Some early laboratory and animal research suggests that compounds taken from traditional Ayurvedic medicines may be able to slow the growth of cancer in animals.

Researchers have looked at some compounds used in Ayurvedic medicine. These include those listed below.

We place a lot of interest in getting a right amount of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and vitamins in our daily diet,but as per Ayurvedic perspective, a balanced diet isn’t just about getting these in right proportion but is also about another extremely important quality: taste. Ayurveda recognizes six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent. Including all six tastes in every meal not only ensures that all major food groups and nutrients are represented, but it also provides us with the feeling of satisfaction in eating. THE SEQUENCE OF EATING FOOD According to Ayurveda, it is advisable to eat foods with madhura rasa( sweetTaste ) in the beginning of the meal, as these foods are heavy and dense in nature and take more time to digest. When we are hungry our digestive fire is powerful and it takes less time to digest these heavy food then. So,start off wi…
