Ayurveda on Tamasic Environment- Ayurvedic Tips and Remedies for Immunity
WHAT IS AYURVEDA?
Ayurveda is a traditional healing science which is 5000 years old. Ayurveda does holistic healing with the help of Herbs, Minerals, Yoga, and diet. Ayurveda has two main aims : to take care of the health of the healthy person and treat the disease of the diseased person. Ayurveda treats on its basic principles that is Sapta dhatus (Rasa, Rakta, Mamsa, Meda, Asthi, Majja, Sukra), Panchmahabhutas (Prithvi, Jala, Agni, Vayu, Akasha), Tridoshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), Trimalas (Purisha, Mutra, sweda) and Triguna’s (Satva, Rajas, Tamas). Balance of these factors leads to the health or the healthy body and Imbalance of these leads to Disturbance in the body or disease.
WHAT IS TAMASIC ENVIRONMENT?
Let us first describe the word tamas, It is one of the guna. There are 3 gunas of mind (Satva, Rajas and Tamas). Here Tamas refers to ”Darkness”. Tamas guna can be triggered by a number of factors such as food, lifestyle, Tamasic Prakriti which indirectly leads to a Tamasic environment.
According to ayurveda
- Tamasic foods such as Onion, Garlic, Curd, Non vegetarian food, Bread, Cakes etc which can harm the physical and mental health.
- Tamasic lifestyle which includes loss of exercise, laziness, Inefficient, Confusion and dullness.
- Tamasic personality when a person is very aggressive, lazy, Sad, Addicted towards unusual things, ignores spirituality, Dependency etc.
Also, environment denotes the condition or the surroundings in which a person lives.
So, All these factors lead to the Tamasic environment which means that adopting this Diet, lifestyle or the way of living leads to a Tamasic condition.
Due to this, the body gets affected and leads to diseases such as infectious diseases and autoimmune disorders.
In Ayurveda, factors play a vital role in disease to occur. The basic cause is intellectual errors that are due to Rajas and Tamas Predominance, which results in jealousy, anger, laziness, Greed, Intake of tamasic food, Disposal of waste water in improper methods, Deforestation etc. These not only influence the lifestyle but also the health of an individual leading to the infectious diseases.
The viral infections are more prevalent these days, It happens due to the tamasic environment (Intake of oily, processed foods which decreases the immunity, Deforestation which leads to Impure air, and Overgrowth of Microorganisms such as Viruses and Bacteria, Sedentary lifestyle which decreases immunity) etc.
The reason for the prevalence of these diseases is that our surroundings have been tamasic, the diet and the lifestyle is made in such a way that is leading to the disease and the frequent infectious diseases.
So to deal with this, we have to change our habits and along with that we have to increase our immunity.
