Society places a badge of honor on those who are over-committed and upholding a busy life. With continual outside pressure, the adrenal glands have to work overtime to make enough stress hormones to sustain the habitual cycle.

Throughout a stressful day, our body struggles to balance the increased levels of adrenaline and cortisol in the bloodstream due to the activation of the sympathetic nervous system. Our body’s natural response is to increase the production of balancing hormones that have opposing energies (ie. estrogen, progesterone, testosterone). In turn, this puts a strain on our adrenal glands and hormonal systems. Eventually, our bodies can’t keep up with the demand.

At first, our endocrine system gives us signals that something is off but eventually more serious health concerns show up such as weakened immunity, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalances, and more.

What is does it mean to have vibrant health, live life with meaning, and have a deep sense of peace, contentment, and purpose? Ayurveda means knowledge of life, and it originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. It is the oldest continuously practiced health care system in the world, coming from an understanding of nature’s natural rhythms and laws and working with the imbalances that show up as signs of disease in the mind and body. 

Today, we are applauded for being over-worked, stressed, and exhausted. We are taught that stress, anxiety, and chronic disease are a normal part of life and aging. However, this could not be further from the truth. Ayurveda teaches us that there is always a choice, providing us with effective and intuitive tools that can be used to evaluate the degree of disharmony, whether slight or severe, to determine its cause and give us the practices to reclaim optimal health.

How well do you sleep? Do you have difficulty falling asleep?  Do you wake up in the middle of the night? Do you stay up too late and get up too early?

We spend approximately one-third of our lives asleep. This leads to the essential question: why do we need sleep? What is clear is that quality sleep is a staple of optimal health. But even though we know this, many of us are not making time for quality sleep. Because of busy lifestyles, we do not truly receive the health benefits of sleep.

As we drift off to sleep, our bodies begin their night-shift work. This is the time when it detoxifies and clears itself of physical toxins and processes daily emotions.

Learn why sleep is the most important life change you can make for recovery, stress management, immunity, detoxification, weight loss, and more.

It has become a modern fad, not suitable for optimal wellness. According to Ayurveda, exercise gets rid of heaviness and stiffness of the body, because it burns digestive impurities and toxins (ama) this creates more flexibility, lightness, smoothness, and ease of life.

Society places a badge of honor on those who are over-committed and upholding a busy life. With continual outside pressure, the adrenal glands have to work overtime to make enough stress hormones to sustain the perpetual cycle.

Our bodies struggle to balance the increased levels of adrenaline and cortisol in the bloodstream. In return, the body responds by increasing the production of balancing hormones with opposing energies (ie. estrogen, progesterone, testosterone).

This strains our adrenal glands and hormonal system. Eventually, our bodies simply can’t keep up with the demand. The endocrine system then gives signals that something is off.

Along with digestion, unhealthy or irregular dietary habits, unmanaged and accumulated stress, unsupportive relationships, inactive lifestyles, and environmental toxins can challenge your body’s ability to digest food properly. A weak digestive system results in the accumulation of ama, or toxins, that cause imbalance, disease, and premature aging. Your digestion is a true reflection of your mental-emotional-physical state of balance or imbalance. A few signs of a stressed digestive system and accumulation of toxins are fatigue and lack of motivation, mental fogginess and forgetfulness, recurring infections and illnesses, and weight gain.
