Hello, I’m Manjula Paul, owner of Utrecht Ayurveda. Today, we embark on a vital topic in our “Better Health Through Ayurveda” video series: “Immunity.”
In the midst of a global pandemic, it’s crucial to turn to reliable sources like the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) for information. This video marks the start of a two-part series focusing on maintaining a strong immune system during these challenging times.
In this first video, we’ll explore the significance of preserving your daily routines, managing meals and sleep patterns, and adapting to reduced physical activity. A robust immune system is your shield, especially when viruses tend to strike the hardest when immunity is compromised.
According to Ayurveda, our body’s immunity is intricately linked to the health of the seven tissue layers or “dhatus.” These layers, starting with lymph (“Rasa”) and progressing through blood (“Rakta”), muscle (“Mamsa”), fat (“Medha”), bone (“Asthi”), bone marrow (“Majja”), and reproductive tissue (“Shukra”), contribute to our overall well-being, culminating in the vital essence known as “ojas.”
“Ojas” is the cornerstone of our emotional, physical, and mental health, as well as our happiness. Maintaining optimal “ojas” requires consistent adherence to Ayurvedic principles throughout the seasons.
Many immune-strengthening practices are within our control, albeit requiring minor habit adjustments. In this two-part series, we’ll explore sleep, a proper and regular diet, exercise, hygiene, and the vital role of mental health in overall well-being.
In our next video, we’ll delve into the importance of exercise, hygiene, and the undeniable connection between immunity and mental health.
