an important goal of Ayurveda is to identify a person's ideal state of balance, determine where they are out of balance, and offer interventions.
What is an "ayurvedic" lifestyle?
Living an Ayurvedic lifestyle is not complicated or difficult. There are no dogmatic or religious beliefs associated with the practice. However, Ayurveda does stress the importance of practicing certain ethical values like truthfulness, humility, and non-violence as well as meditation and yoga since it does consider our entire being as body, mind and spirit. Practicing Ayurveda means that we take responsibility for our own health and well-being and make healthy choices in daily life that support us in our growth and evolution. When we have the awareness that the body is just a tool, or our vehicle for the expression of consciousness, we tend to treat is like a plant in the garden and give it what it requires for health and well-being.
Ayurvedic Tip: Drinking lemon water before breakfast each morning is especially good for cleansing the liver. Lemons are also a good source of citric acid, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Also lemons are effective at dissolving uric acid which is often the cause of inflammation in joints.
