Want to get into a new fitness regime? ~ get into something old
When it comes to our health and new fitness regimes, you cant go far wrong with taking on a little bit of what our ancient ancestors knew about life balance health and well being.
Let's face it we all would like to start a new healthy regime but all too often with the best intentions, we fail miserably in getting them kick-started.
Without some help, support and encouragement from those around us, it becomes an almost impossible task. And even if we do manage to get off the couch we can be overwhelmed with the almost infinite possibilities and latest fad diets, exercise routines and classes that are out there.
My advice, is to trust a tried and tested ancient philosophy of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda literally translates to the 'science of life'. Ayurvedic holistic medicine was born some 5000 years ago in ancient India. It is the oldest science of self healing known in existence and is still the primary health care regime offered in India and other Eastern cultures today. Ayurveda is the less well known sister science of Yoga.
Why I hear you ask would I want to adopt an ancient health regime? Well, believe it or not, all modern medicine is based on the precise and universal knowledge afforded by Ayurveda.
I have read many articles published this year from renown and not so well known so called medical practitioners and health gurus from across the globe. To my surprise there is nothing new in what is being churned out. To make matters worse, the "advice" being offered is generic at best and ill informed at worst.
In contrast to all other health & fitness regimes that are being offered in today's modern society, there are none that considers you as a unique individual.
Ayurveda on the other hand treats people as individuals and looks at what is going on as a whole for that person physically, mentally, in relationships, career-wise and spiritually. Not only that, but it seeks to "root out" the cause of any disease or imbalance and cure this as opposed to modern medicine which simply treats symptoms with artificially manufactured drugs.
If you really want to make a change to your fitness levels, your body shape, diet, emotional well being, stress levels, and overall mental and physical health then look no further than Ayurveda.
Here's my top tips for getting into shape this summer
I get quite horrified at the amount of self medication that goes on in our Western so called 'modern' society. I'm not just talking about sleeping pills and over the counter antacids (which only serve to mask symptoms of an underlying imbalance and go now way to fixing the actual problem) but also things like coffee, alcohol, fizzy drinks, sodas, sugar loaded 'health drinks', high energy drinks etc etc.
If you wake up feely groggy and start your day on coffee or energy drinks to get going, then you put your natural body balance out of whack. If you do this consistently, the body eventually becomes too confused to be able rectify the problem and naturally get back to normal balance. Ultimately this will lead to dis-ease be that physical, emotional or mental.
