Ayurveda Pain Management

The National Centre for Biotechnology Information or NCBI states that about 1.5 billion people suffer from chronic pain worldwide. Chronic pain has become a very common condition in our society. But there's no reason why you should simply live with it without getting checked or treated. There are many treatments available for chronic pain across the nation but we understand that sometimes prescription medication is not our first preference. Then you're in for some good news. Pachouli provides you with ayurvedic alternatives that focus on a more holistic approach to healing and recovery.

Ayurveda And Its Role in Pain Management

This kind of holistic medicine has been around for 5,000 years in India. Ayurvedic medicine primarily believes that the balance between body, mind, and spirit affects the health and wellness of a person. Healing in Ayurveda first breaks down the elements in our environment. The five elements of air, fire, earth, space, and water make up the three energies or doshas. These three doshas are Kalpa dosha (water and earth), Pitta dosha (fire and water), and Vata Dosha (space and air). Each person has different combinations of energy.

With Pachouli, you can benefit from specific treatments for your body, mind, and spirit to produce long-term effects. Lifestyle changes, Panchakarma, herbs, Ayurvedic massage, diet, and stress management are just a few ways in which pain can be managed.

Lifestyle Changes

In the twenty-first century, the hustle culture has been in the limelight for far too long. We are humans, not robots after all. At Pachouli we help you deal with the pain and exhaustion that you face every day. We help you find the perfect balance between your body and mind. Try journaling, spending time in nature, changing your diet, relaxing and recreation, massages, and exercising to change your lifestyle for the better.

Panchakarma

This ayurvedic detoxification process involves the removal of accumulated waste from the body and mind. Originating from a Sanskrit word, Pancha means "five" and karma means "action." The process includes five classical components of treatment - Basti (herbal enemas), Nasya (nasal irrigation), Vamana (therapeutic vomiting), Virechana (purgation), and Raktmokshana (bloodletting). The Panchakarma process now utilizes laxatives, steam baths, a special diet, enemas, herbal oil massages, and nasal irrigation for purging out harmful toxins. After the impurities are removed, you will practice yoga, indulge in meditation, eat a specialized diet, journal, exercise, and spend some time in nature.

Dietary Changes

Someone rightly said that we are what we eat. Eat right with Pachouli. Unhealthy eating habits can lead to an unhealthy life, body, and mind. Ayurveda tells us to eat warm, moist, mildly spicy, and nourishing foods that are good for nutrition. A well-balanced diet will help you maintain harmony between your body and mind. Reduce or eliminate processed food, meat, dairy, alcohol, etc. Ayurveda also reminds us to eat mindfully and concentrate on our meals, eat slowly to enjoy the food, and eat only after the previous meal is digested.

Ayurvedic Herbs

Herbs have been used to manage pain since ancient times. Some specific herbs are both delicious and beneficial. For instance, turmeric helps alleviate inflammation and also helps reduce pain. This everyday spice is used in almost every Indian dish and helps relieve inflammation, treats stomach ulcers, improves digestion, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and more.

Ayurveda Massage

A massage a day can help keep the pain away! When your back, neck, arms, hands, fingers, feet, and toes hold the tension for a long time, they can lead to chronic pain. The ayurvedic massages at Pachouli can treat your pain and muscle stiffness by improving circulation and helping relax the body.
