Following an Ayurveda-prescribed lifestyle can help combat the seasonal flu and colds. Dr Nutan Pakhare, Ayurveda and Yoga consultant and founder of the AYG Academy in Mumbai shares tips on how to stay healthy as the season changes.
Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables which are rich in ‘prana’ or life force because that energises the body and is recommended as part of the diet. Avoid stale, processed or preserved foods which do not have prana. In several Indian cultures, eating stale or leftover food is prohibited in order to prevent digestive disorders that may arise from consuming food that’s devoid of prana. Even as a seasonal diet offers nutrition, Ayurveda has a treasure trove of rasayanas or rejuvenating herbs such as ashwagandha, amla and shatawari and formulations like chyawanprash and ginger tea that can boost immunity.
During the winters, the digestive power is strong. As the external atmosphere is cold, the body retains heat inside and attempts to preserve it. Therefore, the internal digestive fire becomes stronger and can metabolise oils, fats and dairy products. Therefore, these should be included in the diet. A daily regimen plays an equally important role in boosting and maintaining good health and immunity in Ayurveda principles. It should not be sedentary or excessively strenuous. Ayurveda recommends plans that often include a mix of diet, yoga, meditation, massages and fasting for optimum health. A lot of bodily ailments arise from a weak digestive system which leads to a build-up of toxins. Regular fasting restarts the digestive system, cleanses the colon and promotes health.
