Blissful sleep for better health with Ayurveda (video + transcript)

In truth, we need more sleep than we think we need. All the research is pointing to a minimum of eight hours sleep that people actually need for the work that the brain needs to do overnight to be accomplished. Less sleep leaves us less capable, even if we don’t know it. Even an hour’s lack of sleep [each night] over a 10-day period leaves us as incompetent and incapable cognitively, as if we had missed a whole night’s sleep for one night. The only difference is we don’t recognise it. We don’t know it.

Spiritual Ayurveda: our Five Subtle Bodies and Three Subtle Essences

By |2017-09-05T13:51:42+01:00June 13th, 2017|Anxiety, Brain, Consciousness, Dairy, Digestion, Emotions, Fatigue, Kapha, Mind, Rasayanas, Rejuvenation|

[fusion_separator top_margin="5" bottom_margin="5"][/fusion_separator] The concept of the three Doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha – is most people’s route into understanding Ayurveda. It’s easy to grasp how Vata Dosha can be responsible for all movement, Pitta for all transformations and Kapha for all structure in our body and the world around us. But there is a deeper level of this understanding though and the three Doshas have their root or [...]

What are the benefits of Ayurveda herbal ghee?

[fusion_separator top_margin="5" bottom_margin="5"][/fusion_separator] Because of its unique ability to penetrate into cells and cross the brain-blood barrier, Ayurveda considers ghee to be a highly effective medium for transporting the healing nature of herbs very deep into our body tissues. For thousands of years Ayurveda has created numerous Ghritas or herbalised ghees – herbs infused into ghee in order to enhanced their therapeutic effects. How are Ghritas produced? Ayurvedic practitioner, Dr Donn [...]

Handle the transition from Spring to Summer with Ayurveda

By |2017-09-05T13:51:42+01:00May 14th, 2017|Detox, Digestion, Natural cycles, Panchakarma, Rasayanas, Sleep, Spring, Summer|

[fusion_separator top_margin="5" bottom_margin="5"][/fusion_separator] From the Ayurvedic viewpoint, interesting things happen within your body as winter gives way to spring and then spring give way to summer. As spring progresses, the cold, slow, heavy and sticky qualities of Kapha Dosha, that build up during late winter, gradually melt away and this often results in the chest colds and runny noses common in March, April and May. Springtime supports the body’s natural [...]

Can hunger increase your brain power?

By |2017-09-05T13:51:42+01:00May 8th, 2017|Detox, Fasting, Mind, Panchakarma, Rejuvenation|

[fusion_separator top_margin="3" bottom_margin="3"][/fusion_separator] When was the last time you felt hunger so deep that you could eat the proverbial horse? Well, research suggests that the regular experience of hunger may boost the power of your brain. It seems that hunger produces a stomach hormone called ghrelin that not only stimulates appetite but also seems to promote the growth of new brain cells; it even protects those cells from the effects [...]

How old is Ayurveda and what are its origins?

By |2017-09-05T13:51:42+01:00April 15th, 2017|Consciousness, Knowledge, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Natural cycles, Yugas|

[fusion_separator top_margin="3" bottom_margin="3"][/fusion_separator] You often find assertions such as “Ayurveda is a 3,000-year-old medical science”. Are such origin dates just plucked from the air because writers know their audience needs some reference point to what may appear, a mysterious and obscure health system? What are the real origins of Ayurveda? As old as mankind I recently went to a fascinating talk by Dr Jagdish Vaidya here in Skelmersdale, where he [...]

The following video (and info below) was recently put onto Facebook by the organisers of the International Ayurveda Congress in London, an event that will take place on 1-2 April. The video features David Verhoogt, who is well known at our Maharishi AyurVeda Centre and who is a great advert for the benefits of both Transcendental Meditation and Ayurveda.

Take care what you drink, breathe and eat

[fusion_separator top_margin="3" bottom_margin="3"][/fusion_separator] We are told to drink plenty of water each day as it’s good for our brains and for the rest of the body. We are told to drink filtered or bottled water as the chlorine added to mains water to kill bacteria is bad for us. Now we are told that the plastic used in water filters and bottled water contains endocrine disruptive chemicals (ECDs) that damage our [...]

Ayurveda for Childbirth and Nursing Mothers

By |2017-09-05T13:51:42+01:00March 12th, 2017|Mother and Baby, Women's Health|

[fusion_separator top_margin="3" bottom_margin="3"][/fusion_separator] Childbirth is a natural part of life, and as with all things natural the less medical intervention the better. Yet, this natural process, which women have been doing for many thousands of years, has become highly medicalised. There are good reasons for the medicalisation of the birthing process. Before the proper understanding of how infectious diseases spread, and of the importance of strict hygiene procedures, childbirth was potentially [...]
