Monsoons may be the primary cause of Monsoon Tourism in Kerala. During the monsoon seasons, particularly during the months of Mithuna ( Gemini ) and Kataka ( Cancer ), the body becomes weak and this is an excellent time to take in Ayurvedic medicines. I am taking in Chyavana Prasam, a rejuvenative and restorative. It is an Anti Aging Medicine, enriched with the essence of gooseberries, the great source of Vitamin C. Aphrodisiacs like Mucuna Pruriens ( Naikarana parippu ) and Withania Somnifera (Aswagandha, the Indian ginseng ), can be taken in. This process is calledVajeekarana in Ayurveda. It makes men regain their lost Sapta Dhatus or the Seven Tissue Elements and makes men as fit as horses ! In his book ” Quantum Healing”, Dr Chopra says ” During the coming years,Ayurveda will blossom”. During Monsoons, the digestive power weakens and vata is aggravated. Moderation in diet is what the doctor orders. Bitter, pungeant and astringent food should be taken in, along with rice and wheat. It is better to avoid excessive sex. It is time to go in for oil bath and massage. Water should be boiled and cooled. Avoid sleeping during daytime. Honey can be taken in, as it is an excellent medicine. The triune humours of Ayurveda, Vata, Pitta and Kapha( bile, wind and phlegm) should be kept in equilibrium as their disequilibrium is disease.
To keep these doshas or humours in balance, Ayurveda prescribes unique diet ( Ahara ), a distinct mode of living ( Vihara ) and routine living ( Karya ). This will help you in coping with the stresses and strains of the changing seasons. Kerala is one of the states identified by the Center for Monsoon Tourism. Mainly because Kerala gets around 3000 mm rains in three Monsoons. Even the summer rains ( Summer Monsoon ) bring in about 300 mm of rains , the North East Monsoon brings in 500 mm and the South West 2200 mm ! Not blessed by high education alone Tiny Kerala is graced by three Monsoons ! unnatha vidyagunathal sampannam Kochu Keralam Thri mazhayal samriddham ! Monsoons may be the primary cause of Monsoon Tourism. But the secondary cause is Ayurveda ! Aswagandha Rasayana is a very effective medicine for regaining vitality.Aswagandha is the Indian ginseng and is used as an aphrodisiac. Rejuvenative Therapy is called Rasayana Chikitsa and there are lots of benefits attributed to Rasayanas.
Gift of the gab or the divine gift of articulate speech, beauty, virility - all these are gained by the Rasayanas ( Vag siddhim vrishatham kantim labhathe cha rasayanath ). Aswagandha Rasayana I used to take in during the months of Mithuna ( Gemini ) and Kataka ( Cancer ), known as the medicinal months of Ayurveda. I used to apply Narasimha Oil ( a medical concoction based on coconut oil ) on my scalp, which used to make the head cool and give a gloss to hair. Another good cool oil which can be used on the scalp is Kanjunyadi thailam, which is good for hair. Senescence has been attributed to loss of Ojas. Ojas is the essence of the Seven Tissue Elements or the Sapta Dhatus. Ojas is the bio juice which sustains life. Loss of Lustre or Ojas Kshaya has been attributed to Anger ( Krodhath ) Grief ( Shokath ) Workaholism - ( Sramath ) Tension ( Dukhath ) Mental ( Dhyanath ) Trauma ( Abhinganath ) Dhatu loss ( Kshayath ) To regain Ojas or Lustre, one should take in life promoting medicines, milk and meat juice. Prohibition of activities which leads to mental tension ( Pariharya Visheshath Manasa Dukha Hethu ) . Foods, sweet in taste, cold lighter and easily digestible, viscous and which promotes health should be taken in. The Sun’s transit of Lamda Orionis ( Makiryam Njattuvela ) is in full swing now. There were fierce rains for half an hour ( 0900 to 0930 AM, 19062010 ) and it is still raining now. Now is the time to take in Ayurvedic medicines and increaseDhatu Pushti ( strengthen the seven tissue elements ) and enhance Ojas ( Bio Juice )
