Today's Health Tip

Breathe right!
Enhance your health with proper breathing. Breathing is so simple we often take it for granted, but it has fundamental influence on body, mind, and spirit. Every time we breathe in air, we bring oxygen into the body and spark the transformation of nutrients into fuel. Every time we breathe out, we purge the body of carbon dioxide, a toxic waste.

Breathing influences our state of mind. Shallow breathing can make us tense. Deep breathing can make use calm. Breathing can make our thinking confused or clear. In the yogic tradition, breathing is the means of acquiring prana, the ethereal substance that powers life.

Pranayama is the optimization of prana through the control of the breath. Pranayama can be practiced with or without the practice of other poses. You already know how to do this.

  1. Sit comfortable with your spine straight or lie comfortable on your back. Take deep breaths through your nostrils.
  2. Relax your breath as you slightly contract the back of your throat. The first time you do this, you may create an "oinking" sound rather like a pig! Do not worry about unusual sounds. With a little practice, you will create a steady hissing sound as you breathe in and out. You do not have to force this sounds, but it should be loud enough that another person in the room could hear it.
  3. Breathe as long and deep as you can without creating tension anywhere in the body.

Perfect your technique with help of an instructor.

What diseases can be relieved by pranayama? Pranayama purifies the channels along which the life stream of \'prana\' flows in the body and prevents various disorders. It increases one\'s resistance to respiratory diseases. It helps cure cough and cold, insomnia, chronic headache and asthma. And, as recently reported in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, pranayama can even relieve diabetes and heart disease.

Naturopathy for beginners [ 15-08-2013 , 02:08:00 ]

What is Naturopathy?
 
Naturopathy is a system of medicine that focuses on Natural remedies and body’s vital ability to heal and maintain itself. Treatments based on 5 elements of nature i.e. Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Space, aim to support and aid the body to heal itself. At the core of the Naturopathy is lifestyle medicine.
 
Philosophy
 
Naturopathy is a healing art based on holistic principles of the healing power of nature. This includes treating the underlying cause within the body to achieve optimal health that may have been compromised by lifestyle, genetic predisposition or dietary imbalances. Within this belief, naturopathy aims to restore vitality through supporting and stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms.
 
Modalities
 
Herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicine known to the society. The practitioner makes use of extracts and tinctures derived exclusively from plants and other natural sources. Herbal preparations can balance the whole body unlike pharmaceuticals, which only work on one specific system. Modern herbal medicine is safe and is constantly backed up by updated research.
 
Nutrition is the treatment of disorders using food as medicine. With the fast paced stressful lifestyle of our society, many of us are eating highly refined foods. This does not supply us with the nutrients we need to maintain good health. The naturopathic nutritionist uses fresh whole foods and supplements to re-establish an optimum nutritional status required for good health.
 
Hydrotherapy uses the water in different forms like baths, sprays, packs, ice, steam etc at various temperatures to get desired effect on the body. Main principle is to improve blood circulation in the affected area and thus enhancing the body’s self healing mechanism.
 
Other elements of nature are used in different forms like mud baths, mud packs, sun bath, dry heat, wet heat etc to get desired effect on the body. All these treatments play a supporting role in the healing mechanism of the body.
• Accupressure & Refloxology is based on the principle of balancing energy flow in the body and works on principles of Chinese medicine of balancing ying & yang. Most of the Nature cure centers use it as complementary treatment.
 
Exercise is used frequently as complementary treatment in musculo-skeletal conditions and for treating various pain and aches. Many Naturopathy centers offer physiotherapy treatments along with other modalities. Walking as well as supported passive exercises are also used in Naturopathy.
 
Yoga and Meditation are ancient Indian sciences mainly advocated these days for balancing the mind. Both have been scientifically proven to achieve balance between the sympathetic and para-sympathetic nervous system thus bringing balance to the mind. While many people wrongly compare Yoga to exercise, it has a great advantage over exercise in achieving a balance in our nervous system.
 
Conditions treated
Naturopaths are trained in a variety of modalities and therefore able to treat a broad spectrum of illnesses or disease states that are either acute or chronic like:
• vital organ dysfunction esp heart and kidneys
• common chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension
• respiratory conditions like asthma and bronchitis
• skin conditions like psoriasis
• anxiety and depression
• gastrointestinal and digestive disturbances
• hormonal abnormalities such as menopausal symptoms, hyperthyroidism
• allergies and auto-immune conditions like SLE, Rheumatoid arthritis etc
