5 Secrets To Good Heath - By Dr Vaidyas In-House Doctors
1. Eat A Balanced Diet - Dr. Surya Bhagwati, BAMS
A balanced diet leads to a healthy being. Good food can spiritually empower the soul and leads to a healthy mind. Just a few changes to your diet and you are bound to feel less bloated, fuller, and filled with boundless energy. Taking immunity-boosting Ayurvedic medicines like Herbofit is also beneficial, especially these days.
“I found years ago that following an Ayurvedic diet plan with plenty of whole foods helps me with my focus and energy levels. I also switched to being a vegetarian and the cutback in nonveg foods has gone a long way to helping me get better sleep, among other benefits.”– Dr. Surya Bhagwati, BAMS
2. Focus On Positive Energy - Dr. Akshara Devrukhkar, MD Ayurved
The principle of Ayurved is focused on helping to balance the different types of energy in the body. So, making sure that the energy that you generate and surround yourself with is not harmful. Yoga, meditation, and chanting are some of the forms of energy harnessing that are most common.
“Following the circadian rhythm has improved my overall health and productivity immensely, eating home cooked balanced meals regularly and having a good sleep wake cycle has helped me keep my good health, if I ever feel stressed or disturbed chanting simple mantras like gayatri mantra or hanuman chalisa has always helped me keep a positive energy around me. “- Dr. Akshara Devrukhkar
3. Start Exercising - Dr. Sachin Malik, MD Ayurved
Exercising is a piece of very common advice all doctors give their patients. And while it’s not a miracle pill, it is guaranteed to help improve your health and is a core secret to good health. Yoga is also a great way to destress your body and mind while taking Ayurvedic medicines like Ashwagandha and Herbobuild can help improve your physique.
"I've found that regular exercise is a great way to stay mentally and physically fit. And when I say exercise, I'm not talking about hitting the gym hard either; even walking and yoga can be considered exercising. In fact, I and my family started yoga after the lockdown was starting to stress us out due to being unable to leave the house for weeks on end. "- Dr. Sachin Malik, MD
4. Make Some Lifestyle Changes - Dr. Sneha Tidke, MD Ayurved
According to Dr. Sneha, the secret to good health would be ‘Knowing Yourself first’. This involves the act of being mindful and giving keen attention to your body and mind. Simply put, pay attention to how your body is changing according to your diet and lifestyle to make positive changes.
“I follow and advise a simple rule about diet- “Eat only when you are hungry and not because it's time. A simple change in lifestyle like getting up every half an hour from your chair while you WFH and taking a walk in the house and avoiding day sleep by taking 10-15 min naps on left side of the body post lunch would be sufficient to get yourself re-energized.
Giving your body parts an everyday twist with Yoga asanas like bhujangasana, suryanamaskar, practicing Vajrasan after meal, etc. is very important. Meditation, deep breathing, Bhramari Pranayam and herbs like Ashwagandha, Brahmi, Jatamansi etc. works magically on stress, anxiety and sleep disorders.
And last but not the least to keep yourself sane in these stressful and influential surroundings; performing simple Pooja by joining your palm and lighting Diya and incense, chanting mantras endows with positive energy.”- Sneha Tidke, MD
5. Drink Lukewarm Water - Dr. Sumit Patil, BAMS
The secret of good health doesn’t have to be ground-breaking or radical. It can be as simple as drinking a glass of lukewarm water after waking up in the morning and before going to bed at night. Studies have shown that drinking lukewarm water can help support digestion, weight loss, circulation while relieving constipation, and stress. Doing this every day can also help detox your body. Taking Pachak Churna or other digestive aids can also boost your digestion.
"Ayurved literally translates as science of life and I consider myself very lucky that I got to know and learn at least a drop of this knowledge ocean. As an Ayurvedic practitioner, Ayurved has influenced lot of things in my daily life, to point out one specific thing which has kept me away from diseases and hospitalization, even during COVID pandemic is drinking cup of lukewarm water in the morning and before going to bed and I think that’s my secret of good health".- Sumit Patil, BAMS
