Heal your digestive system

We believe in the quote “we radiate what we absorb in our body”. It literally means that our body is showing us clear signs of how different organs of the digestive system are absorbing the food we consume. Do you feel gassy, bloated, acidic, uncomfortable in your stomach, does it produce sounds? Are you stressed or unhappy? In these ways your body is trying to show you that it needs rest, either on physical level or mental level . It also means you need detoxification and modifications in your diet and on the psychological level – maybe to change the way of your thinking, observing you relationship or job might be a good first step.

A good digestive system in Ayurveda starts with having a good Agni .Agni or digestive fire is consi-dered as the most important element for a healthy body and mind, as Ayurveda stands that the mystery of good health is lying not only in what we eat, but more in the quality of our digestion. From the question: how can we check if we have a good Agni? starts the most important lesson of analysing your digestion

Do you tend to eat or not to eat when you are stressed? Do you eat because it just comforts you? Do you become all of a sudden excessively hungry and everything that you eat passes through you? All these symptoms are clear signs that you have an irregular or hyperactive Agni. In both cases the digestive system does not function properly and can make you seriously sick. It can result in a low / inadequate / excessive level of acid, harmful for the digestive system. Nowadays we believe that food is not healthy for us instead of trying to make our digestive system powerful.

Some simple steps can be taken to strengthen our digestive system:

  1. Detoxify all the organs of your body
  2. Relax your mind, which will help the nervous system to pay full attention on digestion process.
  3. Change the food habits according to your unique body type.
  4. Eat regularly the proper amounts of freshly prepared food
  5. Take herbs – they are always recommended to promote digestion or to calm down the di-gestive system .
  6. Don’t drink too much water after food, that dilutes the acids,
  7. Keep fat tissue in check which means maintain a healthy weight
  8. Never overeat, respect your digestive system’s capacities
  9. Ensure clean and regular elimination,
  10. 10) Follow an Ayurvedic lifestyle which includes self-care every day Panchkarama procedures (marma, herbs, cleaning, strengthening) are helpful in digestive disord-ers. Apart from this Ayurvedic psychological approach to understand your mind and lifestyle helps to overcome all diseases of digestive system.

Thanks of our combined therapies, many patients have cured their food intolerance to various in-gredients, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, acid imbalance, ulcer etc.

However it is important to make sure that the disease is not yet present in an active stage. For ex-ample it is not recommended to take any kind of intense detoxification to a patient with bleeding ulcer, as the body needs to heal first. The active disease should be treat before, so the body can feel safe, relaxed and put full attention to detoxification and not to calm down the urgent prob-lem.

package of treatments is designed as per conditions . We welcome you at Shiva-niAyurveda to learn, heal or detoxify your digestive system with us heal your diseases, instead of healing only the symptoms

Heal depression, anxiety and burnout

Every person is special and needs to express his/her own needs and desires .Often accumulated negative emotions can manifest as depression, anxiety or burnout. These diseases are a clear indication that healing should happen to the whole nervous system and one should not only subside the unpleasant symptoms. Ayurvedic treatments work like adding fertilizer to the soil and thereby help to solve mental im-balances. For example what do we do when a machine is not running properly? Of course, we don't just start shouting at it or trash it. In order to repair it, we open the instruction manual , try to find out the reason of defect and learn how to fix it. If the fault is complex, then we are even more motivated to discover and solve the problem.

But why are we not willing to spend same energy on getting to know ourselves when the mental challenges appear? Why do we want the symptoms to disappear instead of healing the causes which cause them .It happens because we are reluctant to admit that we have to know more about our mind and the way it thinks. Attempting to understand the mind and its qualities can be like playing with fire .Awareness is an extremely important factor present in mind but, paradoxically, we’re not thought how to use it. Mind does not have any shape or form itself, it adapts to the chosen pattern. As mobility is the nature of mind, we need to learn how to overcome its chaotic rush, so it can calm down.

Do you feel depressed?

A small but effective step to try when you are depressed / feeling low or stressed, try to focus on your body instead on your mind. First of all, start moving/walking in order to shift the energy from mind to the body.Drink some water and take a walk in the forest. It is easy to recognise who you are and what makes you happy provided you are ready to put your attention there . You are a unique combination of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Before you look for approval from others – check if you truly accept yourself. Whatever stops you to do it, let it go. Don’t overanalyse: your emotions . Every emotion is just a thought and every thought can be changed!

At Shivani Ayurvedacan help you alter your attitude and reactions through Panchakarma and various therapies we offer . Along with this herbs which are natural help you handle the ailment better along with fresh sattvic food which is served to you during the treat-ments .

We recommend you to use natural help instead of chemical pills . We also provide online consultations with us to help you to understand our approach to the mind .

DISCLAIMER Ayurvedic psychology and herbs are a way to understand and support the patient through natural help, but when going through psychological imbalances or any psychiatric problems do not stop any chemical prescription from your doctor without his/her supervi-sion as natural therapy is not a psychiatric treatment replacement but a support.

Infertility / sexual dysfunction / Potency increasing

Though the basic treatment plan is for infertility the same plan is also can be modified for erectile dysfunction , sexual libido enhancing and as a pre preparation for conception for any couple .

The Ayurvedic aim goes far beyond merely conceiving. Instead the emphasis is on creating a child who is mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy — a wise and well balanced child who will contribute to society and become an enlightened citizen.

Robert and Maya (names changed) were married 8 years and since then they tried all sorts of helps to get Maya pregnant. Finally, they came to us seeking help. Robert was a successful-

entrepreneur who was very popular in his group, and Maya a very shy, introvert girl. At home, Maya’s mother was always repeating that she is not good enough while Robert was absolutely loved by his parents. Maya’s behaviour was stiff and she always looked stressed. They were so concentrated on having a baby that they were losing the joy of being a couple. Through our treatments they opened up as a couple , developed better way of understanding themselves and their relation with each other .Not only after the treat-ments,they conceived their child who is 7 years old today . Happiness prevailed in their life as they connected in a deeper manner.

This was done all through natural help at Shivani Ayurveda without any hormonal induction or any chemical medicine use. This was attained through our psychological consultations ,detoxification, herbs and fertility enhancement therapy. Today they are not only healthy but also are balanced parents. Maya smiles, loves her son and enjoys the company of her husband. Such is the goal of natural help which is given to the infertile couple

While planning a baby, try natural help if you are not able to get pregnant. The combined ele-ments not only will help you to have a great, healthy baby but also to deepen your rela-tionship as a couple. We have worked with many couples who have done detoxification be-fore planning their babies, to have a pure body and an energised sexual system, ready to conceive. We helped others to work out various layers of psychological blocks, stress and fears, which were hindering the pregnancy

A special diet plan is made up the child desiring couple based on Ayurvedic principles .For men the goal is to have a better sperm count, quality and mobility. And for the women it is to be more alkaline and fertile. A relaxed environment instead of stress and pressure which is put on the average couple today is a great wayto conceive the twinkle of your life. There are also special treatments for women who have taken drugs in their early life, to repair and rejuvenate their uterus and tubes.

Even if you don't want to conceive, there is a value in enhancing the reproductive tissue (shukra). Shukra has a dual function, not only producing the sperm and ovum, but also ojas, the fin-est product of digestion. Ojas creates vigor, bliss, lightness, stamina, immunity, luster in the skin, sparkle in the eyes and clarity of mind. Thus working on the reproductive system is always beneficial

Duration of the therapy : Three weeks to four weeks

Weight loss program

Unnecessary, additional kilos can be challenging! It is difficult for the mind but for the body to carry. Difficulties to lose weight has been a topic of study also for us and researching on this we found out many interesting results to why the people gain weight . In this era, al-most everyone is so particular about every inch of the look, whether going for plastic sur-gery or liposuction, ,many are ready to do everything to get the perfect workout or bikini body. Is that right? Well, it is not a subject which needs to be judged or criticised, but which needs a deep recognition: we,humans, are made to believe that we are not perfect. A perfect body is determined by one’s constitution. The body which is well built, has good energy and metabolism along with a good immunity system – this is a perfect one!

As different types of body exists, modern science decided to call them Ectomorph, Mesomorph and Endomorph, whereas traditional Ayurvedic nomenclature calls it Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It is important at the very beginning to recognize your constitution and only then to take the steps for weight reduction. Both Kapha and Pitta have the tendency to gain weight easily. But the one most susceptible to weight gain is Kapha, as it has less ability to build muscles and has a soft body constitution, which makes this body type vulnerable to have a lot of cellulite and blockages. If a Kapha type person adopt a diet without increasing the metabolism, the problem continues when they the shift back to the old, regular eating pattern. Very quickly the old kilos are back, but due to dieting they manifest not in weaken muscles, but in fat tissue.

Many conventional weight loss tricks, like eating ten times small portions, are not good for the Kapha as many get triggered to eat more because of their love for food, and they end up eating a lot more than regular. A check on the preserved and packed food is a must due to their high sodium content which leads to water retention which a Kapha is prone to. The factors which bring slowness to body and mind, for example playing video games, watching television etc. have to be limited and replaced by some interesting outdoor activities ra-ther than indoor gym .

In Shivani Ayurveda clinic we try to design the weight loss program according to body type under-standing, plus analyze the mind to check if any psychological factor is hindering the weight loss. The whole program is focusing on increasing the metabolism instead of the plain weight loss.

“ If you are going to love and understand your body and its need to gain weight or eat excessively, you are going to go far ahead than losing weight.” The weight loss will be inevitable along with a peaceful, content and happier you. We are ready to support you in this process, with our intensive detoxification and special programs

Heal psoriasis, eczema & other skin diseases

The skin is the largest organ of the body. Moreover, it’s elastic, waterproof, lightproof, and self-mending. It renews constantly and adapts to fit us perfectly from childhood, through adulthood, to venerable old age. A healthy skin is a reflection of a healthy happy, light body whereas a diseased skin not only needs topical application of creams but also a deep cleaning of all internal organs. Many of skin diseases are autoimmune and are related to stress and emotions. According to Ayurveda, untimely, improper eating habits clubbed with bad lifestyle vitiates the blood and in turn all the tissues. Thus vitiated blood shows the symptoms of illness throughout the body, for example by exhibiting on the skin through diseases like psoriasis, eczema, etc. Skin dis-ease treatment with Ayurveda needs patience as skin healing is always slow and requires not only the basic treatment, but also many changes of the diet and lifestyle.

Psoriasis

It is a non-contagious common skin condition that causes rapid cell reproduction resulting in red, dry patches of thickened skin. The dry flakes and skin scales are thought to result from the rapid buildup of cells. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees and scalp. Only after a proper counselling this is determined and a program is made. The program for psoriasis, eczema and the skin diseases include the three-weeks intensive detoxification, along with herbal medicines to heal the skin, and an alkaline nutrition plan. Meditation and pranayama to calm your mind can simultaneously heal your skin.

  1. use baking soda to reduces itching: add 2 tbsp of baking soda to 1 bowl of water, soak a towel in the mixture, wring it out and apply on the skin as a compress;
  2. expose your skin to the morning sun as its effective in reducing skin inflammation and scal-ing;
  3. 3) take 1 glass of bitter gourd juice mixed with a lemon. Mix well and drink this every day on an empty stomach.

At Shivani Ayurveda we do Intensive detoxification to clean the liver and all the internal organs through panchkarma. We also prescribe an alkaline diet for faster healing along with application of special oil/natural paste as per the current condition . Note : Any active inflamed bleeding skin disease is not suitable for any Panchkarma therapy and needs to be healed with herbs first .

The signs of stress and ageing have become obvious and many are concerned about this! These includes early greying of hair, dry and wrinkled skin, dark circles below the eyes, flabby skin, over-weight and even mental signs like forgetfulness, irritability or confusion.Before one plans to go in for artificial and synthetic means of cosmetology for anti-ageing, one must know all about what Ayurveda can do in order to keep you young and beautiful from inside and outside.

Heal multiple sclerosis and other degenerative diseases

What is multiple sclerosis?
A part of neuron - brain nerve cell – is covered by a myelin sheath, which is protecting the cell and fastening the transport of nerve impulse. Under the auto-immunity multiple sclerosis, the myelin sheath is heavily damaged, what causes not only the corruption of communication in the nerve chain, but also slow degeneration of the nerve itself.

According to Ayurveda, Vata quality controls the overall level of balance and activation of the nervous system. MS is an example of classic Vata imbalance, responsible also for many con-ditions and symptoms, including: insomnia, pain, headaches, constipation, anxiety, worry and fear, fatigue, dry or rough skin, poor digestion, loss of weight and heightened sensitivity, lack of physical sensation (most common sign: the patient doesn’t feel a part of his body)

What treatment do we propose at Shivani Ayurveda ? A long time treatment is needed for MS patients, who required at least 40–60 days of Ayurvedic therapy. After a mild detoxification, Rasayana therapy is given. For our patients we formu-late a special Basti (enema), made out of animal bone marrow (Majja Basti), empowered by rejuvenating herbs. This is one of the special treatment the clinic has practiced successfully over the past years. The patient is counselled for checking his lifestyle and emotions in order to introduce various changes, suggested according to the therapy. One of the major sugges-tion is to make a change in the daily life and routine to balance the Vata dosha.

Vata imbalance is the origin of various degenerative diseases, like Parkinson, Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, osteoporosis, Huntington’s disease, keratoconus. In ancient Ayurvedic scriptures it is said that in all the doshas, body tissues and waste depend on Vata quality, because of its mobility. Like the wind takes clouds to any place it wants, same Vata moves other doshas to any place.

The interesting fact is that most of the Vata collected in nowadays world is due to the emotional state of human mind. As said, stress is a perception in the brain which wants to see what will happens in the next step. This perception is creating so many diseases and problems. Auto-immunity and degenerative diseases are one of them. In order to improve the state of your health, either work on prevention (by changing your belief system and stress factors before you get sick) or, in case of a degenerative illness, work hard on removing all these factors which have resulted to make you sick, and then watch yourself heal and consciously get back to the path of health.
