The Ayurveda Way to Live Healthy – Wellness Through Seeds!

“Life-knowledge” or Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healing tradition that has gained in popularity in the recent past with more and more people opting to live “healthy”. If you are in search of a holiday that will let you experience this rejuvenating inner wellness then consider booking a stay at an Ayurveda resort Sri Lanka has to offer such as Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions where one can enjoy all aspects of traditional Ayurveda.

While many focus on Ayurveda related treatments and therapies, one can forget that it also involves eating “right”. This does not mean on snacking on fat free goodies or diet sodas, but rather food that is more organic in nature and using certain natural ingredients that have a long lasting health benefit. As part of this Ayurvedic tradition, certain seeds are seen as highly beneficial to human health and possess many natural healing attributes. The best thing is the fact that it is possible to incorporate some of these seeds into your normal diet, letting you enjoy its benefits too.

Sesame seeds are something most of us are familiar with and despite their small size, they do pack a “punch” when it comes to health benefits! Oil made from sesame seeds is utilised in Ayurvedic massages and offers a warming and calming effect, while improving joint movement and strengthening muscles. Used mostly for Panchakarma therapies, this oil is believed to help in sleep as well. Oil aside, you can use and add sesame seeds in everything from muffins to vegetables, enriching your diet and letting you enjoy natural benefits.

Sunflower seeds are the other “super seed” that has been utilized in Ayurveda. A high vitamin E source, these seeds are known to neutralize free radicals and are believed to help in the prevention of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma. They also have a high magnesium content which contributes in managing blood pressure, while according to Ayurvedic tradition they also help to control cholesterol and reduce inflammation. You can easily add sunflower seeds to salads and other dishes, making for an excellent way to eat healthy.

Last but not least are flax-seeds which are sometimes referred to as linseeds and which are known to be a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, while also helping to increase levels of good cholesterol (HDL) and reduce bad cholesterol (LDL). Utilised in Ayurvedic treatments, both in its seed and oil form, flax-seeds are also known to help in treating respiratory disorders. One can grind a small amount of flax-seeds and add it to just about anything from yogurt to desserts. Since they are “heaty” make sure you get the guidance of an Ayurvedic doctor before incorporating them into your diet.
