Grounded in a wise understanding of nature, Ayurveda provides a roadmap for navigating imbalances that is comprehensive, manageable, and meaningful. Below you will find a practical and personal approach to balancing hormones using Ayurveda.

 

What Are The Hormones?

Hormones are chemical messengers that are secreted directly into the blood, which carries them to organs and tissues of the body to exert their functions. Hormones are messengers to send communications between organs and tissues, which impact physiological regulation and behavioral activities, like digestion, metabolism, respiration, tissue function, sensory perception, sleep, excretion, lactation, stress, growth and development, movement, reproduction, and mood.

endocrine gland

Our Endocrine Glands

• Hypothalamus

• Pineal Gland

• Pituitary Gland

• Thyroid

• Pancreas

• Parathyroid

• Adrenal

• Thymus,

• Testes

• Ovaries

 

Common Endocrine disorders

The common endocrine disorders include Type 1 & 2 Diabetes, Adrenal Disorders, Hyper/Hypo Thyroids, Low Testosterone, Hypoglycemia, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Pituitary Disorders, Menopause, Goiter and Cushing’s Syndrome, amongst others.

 

What are the Causes for hormonal imbalance?

When our body is affected by endocrine disorders, there is not one specific causative factor that hinders the functioning of the entire process and metabolism, and hence there can be a range of various possibilities. The foremost common ones include the inability of the particular glands to produce the hormones due to damage or disease, genetic factors, tumours on the glands, body infections, and body’s health conditions that affect the production of hormones– over or under levels.

 

How it affects the Body?

As one of the body’s main communicators, the hormones of the endocrine glands become our internal messengers-cum-facilitators, and a breakdown of this entire process – inability to produce/send from source, difficulty in transportation ( through the blood), and the inability of the recipient tissue to “understand” and do the desired action is what leads to imbalances, leads to endocrine disorders.

 

Ayurveda concept for endocrine disorders-

In Ayurveda, the concept of Tridosha encompasses all biological activities taking place in the human body as well as by the human being. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha represent a widely based generalization of life processes and vital activities.

A rigorous following of the Ayurvedic regimen can help remarkably in healing hormonal imbalances brought about by endocrine disorders. Ayurveda textbook describes nine undesirable constitutions (nindita Purusha) that specifically state anomalies in growth ( too tall, too short), hairiness, girth, abnormal skin coloration – all of which may be directly connected to the endocrine functions.

Ayurvedic Body Types

Vata, Pitta, Kapha, and Physiology-

Activities and functions of Vata can be correlated with activities of the Central and Peripheral Nervous Systems as well as the Autonomic Nervous System, Pitta encompasses processes of digestion, metabolism, and absorption of food and conversion of nutrients into energy in the tissues, Kapha represents the functions of the three fluid compartments intracellular fluid, extracellular fluid, plasma including lymph and anabolic processes involving up of tissues.

 

How to Improve Hormone balance with Diet?

Ayurveda provides us with tools that can help build resilience to the hormonal imbalances we are so susceptible to. The mind and body vacillate between two states, rest and digest (parasympathetic) and fight-or-flight (sympathetic), which we can liken to the body constitute our natural state and imbalance.

When we move from balance to imbalance from parasympathetic to sympathetic, the first thing that goes offline is digestion. Supporting the digestive fire strengthens the communication between the body and mind through the enteric nervous system.

To provide the best support to Agni, Ayurveda suggests taking herbs that help to kindle the digestive fire (deepana) and herbs that improve digestion (pachana) to reduce ama or toxins, and protect the strength of Agni.

 

How to maintain a good digestive fire?

Learning to practice mindful eating is the most supportive practice for digestion because Ayurveda teaches us that as we eat we take in not only the food we are eating but the emotions present as well. Reducing stress during mealtimes is most important. If you are stressed during your workday, have the smallest meal at dinner, and make breakfast the largest meal.

• Cook with ghee to support the intake of healthy fats

• Follow dosha-appropriate diets, reduce intake of processed food, and change diets with the season.

 

Ayurveda management for the hormonal disease at Ayur Healthcare-

This generalized concept helps us in taking a holistic approach towards health and disease. Rebooting deranged metabolism by Panchakarma is the most important treatment for the endocrine disorder. Once metabolism has been restored to near its original state with the help of Panchakarma detox cleansing, specific treatment for the specific organ-related disorder can be undertaken. After cleansing of the body, medicines will be absorbed well and assimilated and turn out to be more efficacious.

Finally, another important thing is for well-being is pranayama (breathing exercise). A practical stand-pot brings the body back into a relaxed state, meaning that it conserves energy as it improves cardiovascular activities, improves intestinal and glandular activity, and relaxes sphincter muscles in the gastrointestinal tract. This guide to pranayama is very helpful.

When dealing with significant imbalance, it is good to seek the guidance of an experienced Ayurveda practitioner to support your healing journey. At Ayur Healthcare our highly skilled Ayurveda practitioner will provide guidance on how to maintain a healthy balance of your body and mind – and the hormones that govern them with Ayurveda principles. Shifting your perspective to view all signs of balance and imbalance as information to pay attention to with wisdom and compassion is listening to the Ayurveda practitioner Sydney.

Principles of Ayurveda

Dhara

 

Searching for the best hospital to get Ayurveda Treatment in Sydney? Ayur Healthcare is your best choice! Here’s a basic insight on the principles of Ayurveda before you start your treatment from Ayur Healthcare.

 

Ayurveda ‘the Science of Life’ is a holistic system of medicine that evolved in India from ancient times nearly 3000-5000 years ago.

The science of Ayurveda is based on the theory that the universe is made up of five elements: Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and Ether. These elements are rendered in humans by three “Doshas”, or energies: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

 Ayurvedic Body Types

When any of the Doshas are collected in the body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. The health and well-being of each person are dependent on the right balance of the three Doshas (“Tridoshas”). Specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines proposed by Ayurveda help individuals to reduce the excess dosha.

 

As per the texts of Ayurveda, a healthy person is one whose Doshas are in balance and all tissues of the body and all-natural urges are functioning properly. His appetite is good and his mind, body, and spirit are cheerful.

 

Ayurveda focuses on establishing and maintaining the balance of the life energies within us instead of focusing on individual symptoms. Recognizing the unique constitutional differences of all individuals, different regimens are recommended for different types of people.

 

As a complete medical system, Ayurveda recognizes that ultimately all intelligence and wisdom flows from one Absolute source (Paramatma). Health manifests by the grace Paramatma, implemented through the Prakruti – laws of Nature. In fact, Ayurveda assists Nature by promoting harmony between the individual and Nature by living a life of balance according to her laws.

 Head Massage

Ayurveda describes three fundamental universal energies which regulate all natural processes operating at the level of human physiology. These three universal energies are known as the three Doshas (Tridoshas).

 

The Ayurvedic physicians at Ayur Healthcare are aware of the need for preserving the balance of the mind, body, and soul. They seek to heal the mind-body complex and restore balance to the Tridoshas.
