There are some general ways in which we must protect ourselves against this deadly virus. First and foremost, we need to restrict our outings to necessary ones only. Apart from that, here are some ways in which we can improve our immunity, naturally:

Some of the ayurvedic practices to boost immunity are:

The Way Forward: Preventive Care With Naturopathy

The Way Forward: Preventive Care With Naturopathy

By: - September 12, 2020

We often confuse being disease free with being healthy. However, that is not the case. While most of us have no diseases, we might not be healthy. Our health is highly dependent on our lifestyle. With our busy and demanding lifestyle, we spend very less time on mindful eating, sleeping and exercising.

COVID 19 came as a lesson to us. When nothing came to our rescue, our immunity did.

The best way to practice preventive care is by taking help from nature. With its powerful abilities to heal us, it offers itself to us in the form of Naturopathy, Ayurveda, Physiotherapy, Special therapies etc.

 

Why Naturopathy As Preventive Care?

It focuses on holistic wellbeing

Naturopathy is known for its holistic approach. While one might need naturopathy for a certain disease or illness, the treatment or therapy will address the whole body. The healing powers also address the mind of a person, ensuring a healthy body and mind.

 

Drugless healing

Being a drugless healing approach, naturopathy treatments have no or minimal side effects. Unlike allopathy, naturopathy is drugless and addresses the underlying problem of a disease, rather than suppressing the symptom.

 

Doctor is the teacher

Not only does naturopathy treat problems, but also makes a person capable of treating himself/herself. With the help of a healthy lifestyle, positive attitude and diet, naturopathy ensures it not only treats, but teaches the patient as well.

 

Prevention

As we know, prevention is better than cure; but guess what? It is also cheaper to prevent a disease. Naturopathy treatments are customized according to the patient’s current health state. By designing specific strategies related to lifestyle and nutritional supplements, naturopathy helps prevent potential diseases and illness.

 

Lifestyle change

We all suffered from some disease or illness at some point of time. For the same, we took care of ourselves for a few days, till we recovered. Unfortunately, most of us tend to get back to our careless selves soon again. However, naturopathy ensures that a person follows a certain lifestyle in order to stay mentally and physically healthy. A lifestyle change is what naturopathy aspires for.

 

Nimba Nature Cure is one of the best naturopathy centres in India, which believes in, and uses the preventive healthcare approach. Along with treating illness and diseases, it also teaches a person to take care of himself or herself. Focusing on wholesome wellbeing, it addresses the emotional, social, and physical well being of a person. Having powerful therapies like Reiki or Pranayam healing, it makes a person self-sufficient. It is time to live life the drugless way, and incorporate nature into one’s life, in the best possible way.

How Can Shirodhara Help In Stress Management?

How Can Shirodhara Help In Stress Management?

By: - September 8, 2020

In these difficult times of the global pandemic, our lives have changed drastically. The amount of stress has increased at a faster rate now as compared to the earlier times. The mental health of people has also been affected due to this. People who are unaffected by the virus and the people who have recovered, both are facing a lot of mental tensions. Various studies also showed that people who have recovered face a lot of trauma and stress for the initial months of recovery. Hence, it has become extremely important for everyone to take out time from their schedules for relaxation.

 

The Shirodhara treatment helps in calming down the mind and the nervous system. It eases mental and emotional stress and enables clarity by letting one experience ultimate bliss. The Shirodhara treatment is one of the steps of the Panchkarma, a classical Ayurveda therapy. The name is derived from the Sanskrit language, where, ‘Shiro’ means head and ‘dhara’ means flow.

 

Shirodhara therapy has been proven to be very helpful for the treatment of migraines as well. The process includes pouring lukewarm liquid- which is usually oil, milk, buttermilk or water, onto the forehead in a steady stream for giving rise to a calm and relaxed state of awareness. The Shirodhara therapy is also often combined with a scalp and head massage, which helps upto a great extent in calming down the nerves resulting in relaxation for the migraine sufferers.

 

Various practitioners perform the Shirodhara treatment as an ayurvedic approach to stress relief. In a country like India, Ayurveda has been a trusted source of treatment for over a thousand years. Shirodhara has a list of benefits such as:

  • stress management
  • improving sleep quality
  • managing insomnia
  • solving anxiety issues

 

Apart from such ayurvedic treatments, Nimba also provides naturopathy treatments. Naturopathy is a combination of traditional and herbal remedies along with developing healthy habits. Here, the focus is on nature, and finding cures and treatments from it for the well being. Nimba aims at improving your lifestyle by including preventive changes in it.

For this, we provide you a retreat for such therapies and treatments along with experienced staff and practitioners. Lastly, Nimba Nature Cure is a holistic centre that helps in rejuvenating your life by practicing the art and science of natural healing.

Gain Independence From An Unhealthy Lifestyle

Gain Independence From An Unhealthy Lifestyle

By: - August 14, 2020

While most of us are struggling during these difficult times and are dependent on doctors and other medical practitioners, we are also highly dependent on our health. This pandemic taught us the need to invest in our health. It taught us that true independence comes from complete dependence on our health, be it, physical, mental or emotional. To ensure a thriving lifestyle, there is a need to address the body and mind in their true sense.

 

Here are some ways in which we can gain true independence from an unhealthy lifestyle:

 

Yoga and meditation

Yoga and meditation are helpful in calming the mind and relaxing the body. As we are amid a pandemic, it is necessary to be aware of our feelings and be mindful of how we respond to what we feel. During the lockdown, a lot of us started practicing yoga and meditation. We inculcated a lot of good habits. However, it is unfortunate that we are slowly letting go of our positive habits post the lockdown.

 

Eat healthy

It is as cliched as it sounds, but is also as important as it sounds. This pandemic is a testament to the need to invest in our health. We are highly and totally dependent on our health, especially during such a crisis. And eating healthy doesn’t just affect the body, but also the mind. A sattvik diet is recommended in order to keep the mind anxious free during challenging times.

 

Detox your body

One of the most effective ways to detox your body is through consuming lots of fluids. There are a lot of delicious detox drinks that allow the body to cleanse itself. These drinks not only boost the metabolism of an individual but also helps in weight management.

 

Do not skip your breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal for an individual. Not having breakfast increases the risk of inflammation and other gastric problems. Eating healthily in the morning ramps up the metabolism and supports weight management. This first meal should include foods that are rich in carbohydrates and can be easily digested in order to provide the required energy in the morning.

 

Stay in proximity to nature

With our busy lifestyles, we have been detaching ourselves from nature. We often forget that to thrive we need to get back to our roots, again, and again, and again. Nature not only calms the mind, but also heals the body with the help of its therapeutic powers. Naturopathy is one of the best ways to stay connected with the goodness of nature. Mother nature has a lot to offer us, and naturopathy is the mediator through which nature heals us!

Addressing Asthma With Ayurveda

Addressing Asthma With Ayurveda

By: - August 6, 2020

Asthma makes it difficult for a person to breathe. It affects the daily life of a person negatively. A person suffering from asthma shows symptoms like:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Tightening in chest
  • Difficulty in the lungs

The severity of asthma attacks may differ from person to person. Exercise, allergens, irritants, and viral infections lead to frequent asthma attacks. Having parents or siblings with asthma is not a good sign for us. Our chances of becoming prone to asthma increases. Moreover, there are many other factors contributing to the cause of asthma, including:

 

Allergens:

Pollen from trees, grass, dust found in houses and feathers of animals.

 

Irritant: 

Cold air, changes in weather, air pollutants, cigarette smoke. Also, chemical fumes, paints, odor from cooking, and scented products.

 

Diet:

Intake of junk and fast food, less consumption of fruits and vegetables, having food containing sulfites, preservatives, and additives.

 

Others:

Other elements may include emotions like crying, laughing hard, fear, menstrual cycle in women, anger, and general stress.

Asthma treatment in Ayurveda helps in determining body imbalances. The patient should be willing to participate in the healing process. In addition, when a person undergoes asthma treatment in medication he or she can:

  • Make changes in lifestyle and diet
  • Remove emotional and mental stress
  • Increase immunity
  • Get disease resistant
  • Attain peaceful living

 

Ayurveda And Asthma

Asthma treatment in medication using Ayurveda primarily focuses on understanding the characteristics of each individual separately. However, each person has different issues and so they cannot be treated in the same way. Ayurveda theory says that if Prana (life force) cannot enter the body, the systems of the body will not be able to function. Thus, leading to major anxiety and stress.

Ayurvedic treatment in India provides a holistic view of health which focuses on all aspects of our being: the physical body, the mental and spiritual. Our body, mind, and spirit are interconnected. Therefore, a proper balance is required between them to ensure wholesome wellness.

Practicing Ayurvedic treatments, along with Yoga and meditation, improves strength, flexibility, and the capacity of the lungs. They are also called the three necessary components of fitness. Yoga includes Pranayama which ensures proper lung functioning. In addition, Pranayama also develops strong breathing ability by moving and strengthening the diaphragm. It increases lung air capacity, and improves flexibility of lung tissues.

Moreover, being surrounded by nature helps a person reduce stress in general. Further, it ensures that the person feels calm. Along with that, there are dietary changes that can help. However, there is no specific diet that can address the problem of Asthma. But, foods like Omega 3, ginger, garlic, honey, caffeine, might be helpful. Therefore, it is suggested to consume a good healthy diet. Also one should practice Yoga and meditation regularly.

We are now aware that Ayurvedic treatment is one of the powerful ways of addressing chronic diseases like an asthma attack. Nimba Nature Cure is one of the best centers for Ayurvedic treatment in India. It also provides services like Naturopathy, and Yoga and Meditation. The place offers a unique facility that helps to restore the natural balance of your mind, body, and spirit through modern medical advancements.

Coping With The Transition From Work From Home To Work From Office

Coping With The Transition From Work From Home To Work From Office

By: - July 16, 2020

The outbreak of COVID-19 forced us to rethink the way we work. Work from home had brought many changes in our lives: change in the environment, daily routines, deadlines, stress levels, and all this boils down to our overall change in lifestyle. Initially, people were a little hesitant about the move, but with time they became very comfortable with it. Infact, working from home helped people in a lot of ways.

 

Focus on good health

Due to the lockdown and their strict norms, people were bound to stay indoors. Therefore, they started utilizing their free time by practicing yoga and meditation, eating healthy food, playing with their children, reading books, cooking new dishes, and many other activities. All this helped them to stay healthy and fit. They were able to give time to their growth and fitness and focus on wholesome wellness.

 

Spend time with families

People who used to stay alone in other cities or countries got the opportunity to come back home.  It also opened doors for people who went through depression and hard times in their work and personal lives. They were happy to be back since they could spend some quality time with their loved ones. Uniting again with family and other significant people that matter in our lives makes people feel happy. We could openly share and discuss all our problems, emotions, difficulties with them, and become stress-free.

 

Try home remedies

Coronavirus made us realize what it means to have a strong immune system. The fear of getting infected with the virus forced us to try and consume home remedies that strengthen our immunity. People started gargling with saline water, drinking kaadha, consuming food rich in Vitamin C, following sattvik diet to stay healthy and protected.

 

Now that we are back to our offices for work, we should not forget the good habits inherited during the lockdown. The virus has not yet disappeared entirely, but it is all the more increasing day by day. It will be beneficial if we continue taking daily precautions to ensure wholesome wellness, like doing regular yoga and meditation, consuming healthy food, trying home remedies, and improving our mental health.

 

We need to realize the seriousness of this pandemic and prepare ourselves to fight against it. For that, accepting the new normal along with taking utmost care of ourselves whenever we step outside our homes is now going to be the way of living. The new transition journey has taught us the importance of self-care, physically as well as mentally. We are now aware of specific physical health tips, but an ideal solution for improving mental health is through visiting a Naturopathy and wellness resort.

 

Nimba Nature Cure is a Naturopathy and wellness resort which is considered to be one of the best meditation retreats we have in India. It is situated in Gujarat. The place offers a unique opportunity for people to ensure wholesome wellness and improve mental health.
