  • Are you feeling wired and tired?

    Keeping calm, cool and collected can be a natural state even amidst challenging situations, when your adrenals are strong and balanced.

    When I was 23 years of age I lived in a constantly tired zone… feeling tired but wired, knowing intuitively that something was wrong.  I went to the doctor for some help.  His prescription was valium. After just one tablet it was clear that this wasn’t for me.

    My journey towards understanding how to help my body heal itself and what my body needed daily to function well, began.

    At this time I did not know about Maharishi Ayurveda so I turned to a …

  • High-Caffeine Energy Drinks—The Ayurvedic Perspective

    Over recent years the increased number of deaths possibly linked to caffeine-rich energy drinks has alarmed health officials and raised questions about the safety of these beverages.

    Dr Mark Toomey, Ph.D., an Ayurvedic expert and Director of Ayurvedic Programmess at The Raj Ayurvedic Spa in Fairfield, Iowa comments:

    “Caffeine increases Vata dosha. Vata governs all movement in the physiology, such as the activity of digestion and the nervous system. With small amounts of caffeine we can see the increased alertness and the effect it has on elimination.

  • Work Toward Natural Heart Health the Ayurvedic Way

    While exercise is always recommended, Ayurveda cautions about not overdoing it and taking a moderate approach, as over-extending yourself can shorten your life span just as much as not exercising can. Many countries, especially Western countries, are sedentary, but all too often, people become obsessed with becoming thin. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to be in shape and wanting to take care of your body, it can be taken too far and turn dangerous to your health.
