Additional Information

Yoga, the spiritual branch of Ayurveda is derived from the word YOGAM or UNION, relating to the union of body and mind. It is based on the ancient Indian culture aimed at maintaining the body and mind in a healthy and relaxed state. Yoga focuses on the body, mind spirit of a man and imbibes certain principles, values and a way of life for personal and social well being. The life style regimens mentioned in Yoga are integral to Ayurvedic treatments.

Meditation is practiced to maintain balance or peace in the thinking process. Meditation removes any disturbances in the balance of the three mental states of SATTVA, RAJAS & THAMAS. The PRANAYAMAS and SO HUM meditation practiced at MITRA complements the cleansing process and gives a light feeling on the mind and body by giving more PRANA or life force energy.

Meditation is a very prestigious word included in yoga. In Sanskrit, it is called dhyana or samadhi. Dhyana is a state of concentration of mind on one single object so that the same experience arises continuously in the mind again and again without there being any other experience that may intervene. Meditation is by no means universally regarded as the principal means of attaining Self realization. Meditation is beneficial to the body and mind.

As it is accompanied by deep relaxation, it unstresses the body, causing a feeling of physiological and psychological ease, rejuvenation and heightened vitality. This highest goal is however beyond the reach of most people who practice yoga as a means to living healthier lives. At more advanced levels, the practitioner experiences deep peace and tranquility, which carry over into everyday life. There is also a sense of getting in touch with one's innermost truth, which aids the integration of the personality.

MeditationIntegral part of Yoga is Meditation, an antidote to the excessive stress of modern life resulting in health problems. It helps retrain response mechanisms so that we don't react as strongly or as negatively to adverse situations. Meditation emboldens body's immune system, wards off diseases and enables quick recovery from diseases. Meditation helps mould a mind healthy, alert, positive and calm. This, in turn, produces a body filled with vitality and health. A blend of meditation, proper diet and yoga postures improves the general health.

Medical journals say even serious heart and circulatory problems can be reversed through a regime of diet, meditation and exercise. Meditation takes away fear, worry and anger and replaces the mind with positive, strong attitudes. Its daily practice gives control over the flow of life-force. As a result, an attitudinal change takes place leading to dispassionate approach to worldly pleasures. In short, meditation is a simple and powerful tool to lead a stress-free life. Relationships will be rewarding once developed a calm, relaxed sensitivity of life via meditation. All forms of meditation are good, but in our high speed society, we need to learn how to protect our energy by closing down at the end.

The influence of our diet on your health and constitution is central to Ayurvedic beliefs. Sages and Yogis of Ancient India believed that foods were vital carriers and balancers of energy in the body. Most diseases can be traced ultimately to incorrect diet. Following a strict ayurvedic diet also forms part of the ayurvedic treatment method. Ayurveda emphasizes that the diet we take has a close influence on our mind and body. According to ayurveda, the mind has three possible states (tri-gunas) that are related to the three states of our physical constitution or the three-dosha types. Sattva or peaceful Equilibrium, Rajas or excessive activity and Thamas, or inertia-the three tendencies or gunas of mind influence the imbalances in the three doshas. Specific dietary adjustments serve to maintain the balance of specific doshas and thus entail perfect health. Appropriate diet can be used to remove or neutralize toxins in the body, also.

Ayurvedic DietAyurveda suggests eating food until one's appetite is satisfied. When ill, one should eat only light food and then normal food in small quantities, until half the appetite is fulfilled.
