A week with Ayurveda


For the past week I surrendered myself to the hands of an Ayrvedic doctor in an Ashram setting. She has been advising me on my brain tumor issue for last few months. It was a week long session of Yoga, meditation, Panchkarma (some parts), and a general relaxation at Aurobindo Ashram in Delhi.

Who knew, I went in with a lot of skepticism and came back with a 180 degree change of mind. I was some what afraid of drinking a lot of cow’s ghee everyday, eating once a day and sleeping at around 9:30 pm. It all sounded up-side down. For the first few days, it did feel that way but somehow the things turned around. The deep relaxation set in. I was no longer hungry. The energy level was back up. Hmmm may be there is something really is there in all these seemingly up-side down practices.

I started reading more into it. These practices are more than 5-6000 years old and if some one kept the data may be volumes could be filled. They are part of our Vedic heritages that we seem to have forgotten. me included. They are not up-side down its more of how I thought.

Time to rediscover!!!

The net-net, I came back feeling better with lot less headaches, far fewer toxins, 6 lbs lighter and full of energy. Not a bad way to spend the week.
