Millions of Americans are trying to lose weight, spending billions of dollars a year on diet programs and products. People are losing 20-30 pounds in a few months and feeling good. But within a few years later, find that nearly all have regained whatever weight they lost. Why can’t millions of people who are on a diet program, lose weight permanently? Why is there so much variation in gaining or losing weight? Obesity has become a crucial health problem.



Excess amount of body fat is obesity. As we all know obese persons are at increased risk to many more health conditions than the normal person. They are more prone to chronic diseases like high blood pressure, stroke, heart diseases, diabetes, arthritis, liver diseases, gall stones, gout, infertility, and many more. Fat is an essential component to our body and is termed as “Med” in Ayurveda. It keeps the body well nourished, causes sweating, stores energy, and nourishes the bone tissue.

Menopause



Women are blessed with the qualities of Love, compassion, and affection, sensitivity to emotions, courageous, and exalted with being in womanhood. Many traditions celebrate the day a girl gets her monthly cycle. It is the most important aspect of a woman’s life. This time is called the Menarche when the monthly cycle starts. In the past a woman went through menarche near the end of her teens, quickly became pregnant, nursed for 2 – 4 years after each pregnancy, during which time she would normally not menstruate. Modern women, however, go through menarche earlier (higher estrogen levels due to artificial light, chemicals and pollution, and a richer diet), they usually deliver only 1-2 children, which they nurse for a relatively short time. They therefore go through many more menstrual cycles, the hormonal swings of which can cause a wide range of imbalances and complaints

Know your Body-Mind Imbalances – Vikruti.

Know your Body-Mind Imbalances – Vikruti.


The term Prakruti is a Sanskrit word that literally means, ‘nature,’ or ‘basic trait’. The combination of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha which is present in the individual at the time of conception is maintained throughout his lifetime. Different persons can have different combinations of Vata, Pitta and Kapha as their basic constitution or Prakruti. That is why two people react differently when exposed to a similar situation. Thus, according to Ayurveda everyone is unique and each one of them has a distinct body constitution, which is totally different from each other.
