Health Benefits of Abhyanga Snan in Diwali | A Holy Bath for a Healthy Start

It might be irritating to wake up early in the Diwali vacations just to take a bath. But this bath has a special significance in Diwali as it is considered as a holy bath during Diwali. According to early ancient mythology, Narak Chaturdashi implies the victory of good over evil. And thus, this early morning bath signifies the elimination of evil within us. It is also believed that since Abhyanga Snan is taken before the sunrise, it is as pure as bathing in the River Ganga.

Importance of Abhyanga Snan in Diwali

Here’s how to perform the ritual:

  • Wake up early in the morning (before sunrise).
  • Massage your entire body with sesame or any ayurvedic oil.
  • Also, apply a few drops of oil on the scalp and massage your head.
  • Keep massaging and wait for around 30 minutes before you go for a bath so that the oil is absorbed by the body.
  • Before bathing, apply Ubtan (a powdered mix of Ayurvedic herbs and natural ingredients) and massage it thoroughly over the entire body.
  • Scrub it and rinse with water properly so that the mixture is washed off.
  • Now, bathe as you usually do.

As it includes a full body massage with ayurvedic oil and in some regions, a special ayurvedic herbal soap is used for bathing. However, many people use sesame oil, sandalwood oil, coconut oil and then scrubbing the body with Ubtan. Ubtan consists of besan, turmeric oil, and sandalwood powder. As Abhyanga Snan is an ancient ayurvedic therapy that is said to be the most beneficial for health, it leads to an increase in Sattva Guna and decreases Rajas and Tamas. During the days of Diwali, an Abhyanga Snan reaps 6% more benefits than the other days.

Winter is the season where the body runs out of moisture. Abhyanga Snan moisturizes the body and helps in the flow of blood circulation with tightening the muscles, lubricating the joints, eliminating the toxins from the body & boosting up the stamina. The Ubtan helps in healing the damaged or dull skin, shedding the dead skin; ultimately resulting in soft, smooth & glowing skin. The head massage with warm oil relieves you from stress & calms your mind. It also stimulates the hair follicles which results in hair growth. It also stimulates the nerves, prevents neurological problems and relaxes the mind and soul.

With this holy & simple ritual, heal your complete body so that you can stay healthy for the entire year. Prepare yourself to welcome this festive season with Ayushakti’s proven ayurvedic therapies.

Firecrackers Hazards & Health Issues During Diwali Festival

India is a country where every religious festival is celebrated proudly and with full of energy & enthusiasm. As a secular state, everyone includes themselves in every religious festival for celebration & India is called the land of the festival. Diwali is considered the most important & holy festival as during Diwali, we worship Goddess Laxmi for every essential we require in our life including wealth as well as health.

Diwali is also known as the festival of lights. When it comes to lights, the firecrackers are the must in to-buy-list of every Indian. Indians buy the firecrackers in such a large quantity and then it just turns into ashes. We may find fun in burning the crackers but we are still unaware of the hazard we have done to our health. When we burn one-single cracker, we release a tremendous amount of toxin which makes the winter air extremely toxic. Such toxins form a stubborn fog which makes it difficult to breathe. Hence, it ends up causing severe health issues to kids, senior citizens, pregnant women, etc.

Firecrackers Hazards & Health Issues During Diwali Festival

Most of the health cases that are registered in Diwali are majorly related to asthma, coronary issues, lung disorder, chronic or allergic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, sinusitis, rhinitis, pneumonia, and laryngitis, etc. Air quality takes a deep plunge as the problem gets compounded. This leads to an increase in the number of asthma & lung disorder patients. The symptoms start from difficulty in breathing, cough & wheezing.

However, there are cures to all these health problems. These disorders can be overcome by the right treatments. Ayushakti’s ayurvedic treatments for asthma, breathlessness, sinusitis along with proper diet and lifestyle can give you the best relief like never before. Also, as responsible citizens, we must take care of nature and other living beings. Let’s celebrate Diwali that is free from any pollution.

Osteoporosis Treatment in Ayurveda

The real story of German naturopath, Ellinor Kolbeck on how she Ayurveda helped to strengthen bones and muscles and relieving pain.

One day when Ellinor was turning side in her bed, her rib got cracked and that is the time she realized what Ayushakti vaidya saying 3 months ago was absolutely right – she has osteoporosis. Ellinor, then without wasting time, straight away came to Ayushakti Mumbai for “Arthrox” treatment.
Within 3 weeks of treatment with herbs, oil & dhara with special enemas. She got a remarkable relief in her pain. Then she flew back to Germany and continued Arthrox herbs with the diet for 2 years. Slowly her bone density became better and better and she recovered remarkably in 2 years. This made her very curious to learn Ayurveda and started coming to ayushakti to learn Ayurveda and pulse reading.

What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis Treatment

Osteoporosis is a silent illness. Slowly over a period of 8-10 years, bones become week and osteoporosis develops. Suddenly one day there is the fracture and then you will come to know that you have osteoporosis.
So first important thing is to prevent osteoporosis by checking bone density once a year when you cross 47 years of age. This will indicate if any osteoporosis is developing or not. If yes, then you can immediately start preventive measures. Ayushakti provides Ayurvedic medicine for Osteoporosis treatment. This blog will explain to you all about Osteoporosis treatment. Ayurveda Osteoporosis treatment is most effective.

As per Ayurveda, why osteoporosis?

As per Ayurveda, all the food that you eat converts into different tissues because of Dhatu Agni (Metabolism). Calcium and vitamin D conversion to bone tissues happens with the help of Asthi Dhatu Agni. When this Asthi Dhatu Agni or metabolism does not function very well in spite of taking lots of calcium and vitamins, bones start degenerating and lead to osteoporosis.
Besides that, excess vata (air) in the body also cause degeneration. As in the atmosphere, when there is a lot of wind, everything dries up, just like in Autumn.

What can be done naturally to reverse the osteoporosis?

In osteoporosis, it is very important to increase metabolism, nourish bones constantly and reduce vata constantly. Then, Stimulate dhatu Agni and metabolism. Thus, your own calcium and vitamin D is then starting working and producing bone tissues again and Improving bone density.

How does Ayushakti’s Arthrox treatment work in osteoporosis?

Arthrox treatment is a combination of diet, herbal remedies, home remedies and deep nourishing treatments.

What is the Arthrox diet for osteoporosis?

1. To activate metabolism, mung diet is the best. Every month for 5 days, just eat mung and vegetable soup. This will burn toxins and improve metabolism remarkably.
2. For improving metabolism, daily take ¼ Tsp. ginger powder, ¼ tsp black pepper powder and 1 tsp. of coriander powder in half glass of water twice a day after eating your food. This mixture helps improving metabolism in every situation like obesity, high cholesterol, or uric acid and of course osteoporosis too.
3. Your daily Calcium intake should be 1000 to 1200 mg.

BEST FOODS FOR natural CALCIUM are:

Milk, soy milk, tofu, soybeans, white beans, kale, collard greens, broccoli, almonds and almond butter, leafy vegetables, fish, sesame seeds, rajgira (kamut).
