New Delhi (India), May 08: Are you experiencing dry skin and hair, cold intolerance, constipation, constant mind chatter or boredom with routines? These seemingly unrelated symptoms may indicate an imbalance in the Vata dosha, which is responsible for movement, communication and creativity in the body. Fortunately, Dr. Rekha Radhamony, an Ayurvedic physician of the fourth generation from Kerala has some simple and effective solutions to help you restore balance of your body and mind.
Dr. Rekha recommends incorporating Abhyanga or self-oil massage into your daily routine. This practice involves applying organic black sesame oil to your body every day, which can help nourish the skin and joints, reduce dryness and promote relaxation. In addition to this, oiling the joints is non-negotiable. A video on how to do Abhyanga is available on Dr. Rekha’s YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/ppP5nbH9Vso
Adding good fats to every meal is another solution recommended by Dr. Rekha. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner should all include healthy fats such as ghee, butter, coconut oil, organic black sesame oil or olive oil. This can help reduce internal dryness and promote regular bowel movements.
Dr. Rekha also emphasizes the importance of protecting yourself from the cold. Long showers and cold water are not recommended. Instead, use warm water for the body and wear warm clothing to protect yourself from cold breezes or air conditioning. Additionally, wearing footwear on cold surfaces and keeping your feet warm with socks at night can help alleviate aches and pains caused by cold intolerance.
To reduce over-exertion and avoid straining the body, Dr. Rekha recommends exercising within your capacity. She also emphasizes the importance of rest and relaxation, which can be achieved through grounding exercises, Pranayama, and meditation. Regular rest is essential for general well-being.
If you are struggling with Vata issues like arthritis, spondylosis, hemiplegia, bone and muscle weakness, or are unable to gain weight, Dr. Rekha and her team of doctors offer online consultations to provide customized treatment plans. Simple medicines and diet corrections can help you get rid of these issues and restore balance to your body.
As a fourth-generation Ayurvedic physician who lives between Kerala & Dubai, Dr. Rekha consults patients across 59 nations. Her goal is to bring global exposure to Ayurveda and to spread knowledge about real Ayurveda. She believes that food can act as medicine and can help you enhance your physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
In conclusion, if you want to avoid common illnesses linked to stress, dryness and cold sensitivity, Dr. Rekha’s suggestions for balancing Vata can help you live a longer, healthier and happier life. Incorporating these simple tips into your everyday practice can help you restore balance to your body and mind.
