The time-tested guidance of Ayurveda for building and sustaining wellness and extending longevity
January 2021: This is a natural urge to live a long, agile and happy life. Everyone aspires to relish the gem of longevity with vitality. Young people want to live to be as old as their grandparents, grandparents want to live to see their great-great-grandchildren. This is how the cycle of life runs. In fact, longevity has since developed into a lifestyle that many people are adopting. However, the significance of longevity is intact with the vitality because both are complementary to each other. Longevity needs vitality to sustain.
Usually, in the present time many people over forty years, experience the signs of ageing, issues in digestion, borderline conditions of BP, pre-diabetic or diabetic conditions and heart concerns, whereas amongst the people over fifty, these conditions are found to be commonly pre-existing. However, the onslaught of the COVID-19 has made such people more vulnerable. Now, everyone needs vitality along with immunity, which comes with natural living in sync with the Rasayanas.
“Ayurveda stands for holistic health. And as far as longevity is concerned, it’s much like the seasons, Ayurveda teaches the natural flow to each life stage. Infancy and childhood are marked by a predominance of Kapha Dosha. Adolescence through middle age is closely linked to Pitta Dosha, and the winter years are marked by Vata Dosha. Though the ageing process is inevitable — and surely we all wish to live a long and fulfilling life — we can move with grace and vitality through each stage of life. One can turn with confidence to Ayurveda for the longevity of life with vitality. Ayurveda offers certain practices that conform to natural living, ensuring vitality in sync with the use of the Rasayanas in our dietary regimen. The time-tested guidance of Ayurveda for building and sustaining wellness and extending longevity has always been instrumental” said, Mr Anand Shrivastava, Chairman, Maharishi Ayurveda.
Rasayanas for Vitality and Longevity
To ensure vitality and longevity, Ayurveda has so many facets like the Ojas and the Prana. However, Rasayana is a specific branch of Ayurvedic medicine that is focused on restoring vital essence, nourishing the Dhatus and slowing the ageing process to ultimately promote longevity. One of the most popular herbal Rasayanas, we otherwise call it ‘Super Rasayana’ is Maharishi Amrit Kalash. This enhances the coordination of mental and physical functions; supports a balance between the heart and the brain. This is based on an ancient ayurvedic formulation for the mind and body. It renders a powerful rejuvenating tonic that works deep within the subtle layers of the body to revitalize the fundamental forces of life, Ojas, and bring balance in the whole physiology.
The healing powers of Amrit Kalash are directed at all the three fundamental aspects of the body, the movement, transportation and communication aspect governed by Vata, Digestion and metabolism aspect governed by Pitta and body tissues, structure and all the matter aspect governed by Kapha. Through balancing these three fundamental aspects known as Doshas of the body, Amrit Kalash accomplishes a remarkable rejuvenation of the entire body and mind that has proved effective for prevention and treatment of a great variety of diseases and chronic conditions. It renders a symphony of synergy that stimulates and supports the most essential functions of the body. Synergy of all the efficacious herbs increases longevity, memory and intelligence; enhances immunity, elevates energy levels; decreases the effects of ageing and enhances overall well-being. As per scientific studies it has 1000 times more antioxidant power than Vitamin C or E. It improves three types of mental function: acquisition, retention, and recall.
Natural Living for Vitality and Longevity
Ayurvedic lifestyle emphasises on natural living. And practising the natural living within the ambit of Ayurveda can make big improvements in your health and well-being. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not difficult if we are committed to it. By following certain healthy living adoptions, one can regain control over one’s personal health, promote an energetic, vibrant life, and sustain one’s well-being for the long haul.
However, most of us start our lives not thinking too much about our health because we just have it. But, we need to think with the perspective on the core healthy lifestyle habits, which are pivotal in maintaining health over time. To accomplish vitality followed by longevity, we need to follow certain natural living conditions.
“If you are interested in building vitality and learning Ayurvedic practices for the longevity of life, consider food, digestion, sleep and Rasayanas. The Rasayana promotes longevity by creating and maintaining balance, which is the basis of health. Health has been beautifully defined in Ayurveda as “Balance in three Doshas; Vata, Pitta and Kapha (fundamental aspects), thirteen Agni (digestive & metabolic fires), seven Dhatus (body tissues) proper elimination of waste and bliss at the level of senses, mind and Atma”. Meaning balance and bliss is the basis of health. At this level of health aging process either stops completely or retards substantially. Considering present attacks of stress from all sides physical, mental, environmental, social and so on, good habits and Rasayana both have to work together to maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health. When all of these factors are brought together, Ojas and prana are enlivened, thereby boosting the longevity intact with vitality,” said, Dr Saurabh Sharma, Medical Superintendent, Maharishi Ayurveda Hospital.
