By |2019-04-05T10:27:54+01:00April 4th, 2019|Doshas, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Vata|

One of the fundamental principles of Ayurveda is that there are three different dosha (mind-body) characteristics and that you are a unique combination of each: breezy, enthusiastic Vata; fiery, impassioned Pitta; and earthy, easygoing Kapha. But did you know that each dosha contains five distinct subdoshas that govern specific parts of the body and their functioning? In this article, we’ll focus on the subdoshas of Vata.

By |2019-03-19T16:54:11+00:00March 19th, 2019|Brain, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Mental Performance, Mind, Nutrition, Sleep, Stress|

According to Maharishi AyurVeda, there are three equally important aspects to mental performance: dhi — learning and comprehension, governed by Vata dosha; dhriti — processing and retention of knowledge, the realm of Pitta dosha; and smriti— memory or recall, controlled by Kapha dosha. For the best mental performance and realization of the fullest mental potential, each of these three factors individually needs to be at its peak, and, more important, the coordination among the three factors also needs to be optimal.

Food, Mood and Digestion: The Mind-Body Connection

By |2019-03-12T13:58:03+00:00March 12th, 2019|Digestion, Emotions, Food, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Vaidya|

How does food affect our moods? The food we eat has a significant influence on our minds and hearts. You could even say that the nature of our mind and feelings depends on the food we have eaten. And conversely, the state of our mind, emotions, intellect and senses — and our overall state of contentment — all these, in turn, affect the digestion, absorption and elimination of the food we have eaten. According to Maharishi Ayurveda, the digestive enzymes and metabolic processes are likened to a fire, called kaya agni in Sanskrit. How well we digest the food depends on the strength of our agni.

No longer just a frilly garnish, kale is taking the culinary world by storm. Along with it, leafy greens like spinach, chard, and even collards and turnip greens are gracing plates everywhere from fine dining hotspots to fast food restaurants across the country. These nutrient-packed veggies have long played a starring role in Ayurvedic cooking, and with good reason. They’re hydrating, nutrient-rich, and when prepared while fresh, they contain prana, or life-supporting energy. Below, we’ll share both Ayurvedic and nutritional insights on leafy greens, along with tasty ways to incorporate them into your daily diet.

Ayurveda Diet, Food and Spices

By |2019-03-08T11:42:56+00:00March 8th, 2019|Digestion, Food, Kapha, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Pitta, Spices, Vata|

According to Ayurveda, intake of appropriate and nutritious food is the first step to good health. Food is seen as a prime preventive medicine. And this is not just eating the right foods, but also eating them in the correct combination and quantity. Nutritious food helps us maintain the internal balance of elements. Herbs too, could be grouped into foods. Once the properties of various foods and herbs are understood, Ayurvedic principles can be applied to your daily diet as well as on those occasions when you feel unwell.

12 Ways to Avoid Night-Time Worry

By |2019-03-05T13:46:40+00:00March 1st, 2019|Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Men's Health, Sleep, Stress, Vata, Women's Health|

Do you find yourself tossing and turning at night, thoughts and worries from the day running through your mind like a movie reel? Worry and trouble falling asleep tend to go hand in hand, as both have their roots in Vata dosha. Vata governs movement in the mind and body. It controls your blood flow, your elimination, the rise and fall of your breath, and the movement of your thoughts and emotions. If Vata has fallen out of balance, which is easy in Vata season (late fall and winter), you might notice an increase in anxious feelings and difficulty sleeping.

If you are feeling sluggish, dull or constipated, chances are toxins are building up in your body.

Good news. Balancing your digestion and elimination is a specialty of Maharishi AyurVeda, and many of our herbal formulas are designed to do just that. Of these, one of the most effective is Organic Triphala Rose, which contains a powerful ayurvedic combination of herbs called Triphala.

The Magic of Maharishi AyurVeda

By |2019-02-12T09:32:00+00:00February 11th, 2019|About Maharishi Ayurveda, Ayurveda History, Knowledge, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs|

The Magic of Maharishi AyurVeda In this series of four articles, Anand Shrivastava, Chairman and Managing Director of Maharishi AyurVeda Products Ltd. based in India, shares his memories of the beginning days of Maharishi AyurVeda. "To tell you honestly, I did not have any experience or any knowledge in those days, around 1984, when Maharishi Mahesh Yogi started looking into ayurveda." "It so happened that when Maharishi asked who should take care of the production of the herbal products, two of our most respected vaidyas (ayurvedic physicians), Triguna-ji and Balaraj Maharishi, pointed their fingers at me. I was really surprised to see this, and I was not able to respond. Maharishi said, "Fine, just do it" and I started with his blessings."

Taking Care of Toxins with Maharishi AyurVeda

By |2020-02-10T11:37:48+00:00February 7th, 2019|Detox, Digestion, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs|

Ayurveda distinguishes three kinds of toxins called ama, amavisha & garavish. The most common type is ama, which is the sticky waste product of incomplete digestion that builds up in the digestive tract when your digestion is either weak or overloaded with the wrong foods. If ama is not cleared from the body and continues to build up, after some time it can leave the digestive tract and start circulating throughout the body. Once it settles in an area of the body, it can aggravate the doshas or subdoshas, causing an imbalance in that area of the body.
