The fast-paced lifestyle of today’s urban population has led to various health conditions due to poor lifestyles and dietary choices. Ayurveda as well as Modern Medicine have described diseases that arise because of living an unhealthy, sedentary life. The onset of disorders ranging from Obesity, Insulin Resistance, High Cholesterol levels, Hypertension to Infertility, Skin diseases, etc. have become very common, especially in the young adults of the age group 30-35 years. These diseases have two main causes, poor nutritional intake, and lack of physical activity. There is a dire need for nutritional intervention to prevent and reverse such lifestyle disorders. Interestingly, Ayurveda, an age-old medical science emphasizes prevention being the best choice over therapeutic measures.
Some common lifestyle disorders:
Diabetes Type 2
Hair and scalp diseases
Ayurveda and Lifestyle Disorders
Ayurveda mentions all the lifestyle disorders which are prevalent in recent times are a result of misuse of Santarpana, which is over nutrition. Overnutrition ends up increasing Kapha Dosha and as a result, increases Kleda, which vitiates the normal functioning of Dhatus especially Rasa, Rakta, Mansa, and Meda. This imbalance causes blockage in the regular functioning of the Agni and channels of microcirculation and results in Vyadhi or disease. An action plan that improves the functioning of Agni and thereby all the Dhatus and Doshas effectively reverses diseases.
Ayurvedic Nutrition: Ayurveda believes that if the diet is wrong, medicines will not be useful and if the diet is perfect then there is no need for medicines. This is a strong and powerful statement that is applicable to today’s lifestyle. Poor diet and lifestyle practices are the leading cause of a plethora of diseases. Ayurveda recommends eating a balanced and nutritious meal. Meals should consist of six tastes or Shad-Rasa, namely,
Madhura - Sweet
Amla - Sour
Lavana - Salty
Katu - Hot, Spicy
Tikta - bitter
Kashaya - Astringent
All types of foods can be categorized based on these six tastes. Each taste denotes a specific type of food group which can be corelated with modern nutrition. A holistic and integrative approach of personalizing the diet based on an individual’s age, BMI, Prakriti, digestion capacity, and current health condition is ideal. Only Ayurvedic nutrition can cater to the wholesome health of an individual.
There are certain rules for eating and lifestyle mentioned in Ayurveda and following those helps in improving digestive fire known as Agni and effectively, absorption.
Eat only when there is a true sense of hunger
Eat only when the previous meal is digested
Do not eat stale, under-cooked food
Meals should always be fresh and warm. No reheating
Drink water only when there is a true sense of thirst
Do not lie down immediately after meals
Make lunch the biggest meal of the day
Do not stay up late at night unnecessarily
Exercise daily as per half your capacity
Ayurvedic nutrition is a customized dietary guideline that by itself acts in a therapeutic way. Including Ayurvedic nutrition along with medicinal intervention goes a long way to reverse any lifestyle disease. Even after the medicines are stopped, following this sustainable dietary practice becomes a part of the lifestyle.

A sudden seasonal flu outbreak and an increase in Covid-19 cases have surprised many just as we were beginning to get used to the normalcy of a life without many constraints before the Covid virus.
An unavoidable flu wave generally coincides with a change in season. However, this season has witnessed an unanticipated increase in such cases-nearly doubling from last year in some areas-as well as harsher, Covid-like symptoms.
The spike of Covid-19 cases, the upcoming holiday season, and all of this together create a situation that specialists warn calls for ongoing precautions.
"Masks are the first line of defence against Covid-19 as well as other respiratory infections. With a spike in the number of infections, we must adhere to wearing masks when we step out in public areas. With the festive season right here and large gatherings inevitable, wearing masks are highly effective at reducing your risk of getting Covid as well as seasonal flu. Wearing the right kind of mask, the right way, is also extremely important," says Dr SC Ajmani, General Physician.
Your masks' kind and fit have a significant impact on how effective they are. According to research conducted by the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self Organization in Germany, FFP2 masks that fit snugly offer 75 times more protection than surgical masks. By selecting these masks over common surgical or fabric masks, you greatly boost your protection and can leave the house more confidently, especially in crowded areas.
Protection from viruses, bacteria, dust, pollutants, allergens, and pollen (>= 0.3 micron) is offered by a BIS-approved FFP2 S mask like Savlon. These masks offer 95% protection from aerosols with particles larger than 0.3 micron. In comparison to standard masks, these masks include melt blown filters that are electro statically charged to provide enhanced filtering. The comfort and suitability of these masks for different skin types are also tested. Masks made with Savlon FFP2 S are BIS Certified.
According to BIS guidelines, each batch is put through rigorous testing for quality performance and efficacy. The effects of viruses, bacteria, dust, pollution, pollen, and allergies can be significantly minimised and the wearer's general health can be improved by donning a high-quality, properly fitted mask.
The correct masks are adjusted to perfectly fit on the bridge of your nose and to properly enclose your mouth and nose. We are aware that when an infected individual sneezes or coughs in a crowded environment, the Covid-19 virus as well as the seasonal influenza can spread quickly. First-level protection is unquestionably provided by donning a N95 or FFP2 S mask, especially for those with allergies, co-morbidities, impaired immune systems, or a higher propensity for experiencing severe symptoms.
The use of masks should become a way of life. We must continue using tried-and-true health strategies, like using masks in public. Keep your hygiene and health in mind.
