why ayurveda?

firstly because i have been benefited by ayurveda.....all the other reasons come after this.

love for plants...growing them.....eating them....treating with them........getting my energy from them.

have been a botany student.....a researcher....more than that an avid reader of ayurveda practices.
initially when i started reading about the food values of plants, their medicinal values , i realised that many of the common food items which we eat, have immense potential to treat us in many ways ..the problem is that we often don't know about them or overprocess them or just fall prey to the antibiotics or painkillers unnecessarily...and in the long run harm our body. many times a certain food item when prepared in a certain way becomes therapeutic, it's so simple to treat some common ailments that i fell in love with ayurvedic cooking...better to say making a few ayurveda inputs in my food, and believe me it works ...........the ancient wisdom is for us if only we can practice.

the problem is, we have become so habituated to overprocessed food .....because it's so tasty n addictive, being fast n yum.........i too like spicy food......al the spices have their own medicinal value ........they benefit specific ailments when used accordingly....can be harmful when consumed on a wrong note.........i mean when they disturb either kapha,vata or pitta...........

since i have started blogging recentely, i thought of writing about this too, as i have been practicing it for so long, all the people i advice about it give me the feedback...of course positive....
it was worth writing it all here, on this forum.


i will try n keep updating this one too. and yes my daughter, who is bedridden due to a neurological disorder,is also benefited by this ancient wisdom...............her syndrome is at it's own place...but her general health is taken care of by ayurvedic inputs in her plate too.
