Can't Sleep Say Goodbye to Counting Sheep with Ayurveda's Help


We've all been there, haven't we? Lying in bed, staring at the ceiling, wondering why we can't fall asleep. Maybe it's the stress of work, maybe it's the anxiety of life, or maybe it's just that we had too much caffeine in the day. Whatever it is, it's frustrating, and it's tiring (pun intended). But fear not, dear readers, for Ayushakti, is here to save the day, or rather, the night.

As someone who's been through the same sleepless nights, I know the struggle of trying to get some shut-eye. Sometimes it feels like the more we try to sleep, the harder it becomes. But did you know that Ayurveda can help you not only fall asleep but also have a restful, rejuvenating slumber? Yes, you heard it right.

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of healing, has been around for thousands of years, and it has a cure for almost every ailment, including sleeping disorders. According to Ayurveda, there are three doshas or energies in the body – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha – and an imbalance in any of these can cause sleeplessness.

Pitta, which controls digestion and metabolism, is often responsible for sleep disturbances, especially when it's aggravated by factors such as spicy food, caffeine, alcohol, or a stressful day. Ayurveda recommends avoiding such triggers and following a Pitta-pacifying diet and lifestyle to promote better sleep.
