Is Ayurveda vegan?

Is Ayurvedic Diet Vegetarian and Vegan

 

 

Is Ayurveda vegan?Dietary choices are a personal preference. These might be influenced by your religious, cultural or moral values. 

 

 

As the world is becoming more and more aware about the cruelty caused on the Mother Nature by mankind in various shapes and form, many people are actively taking steps in protecting the Mother Nature and it's creatures. Vegans are usually very strongly influenced by this principle and tend to use everything that is naturally sourced from plants.

 

It does not only limit to their food choices, but it also influences their lifestyle, as most of the vegans don’t even use any accessories originated from animals.  For example, a typical vegan refrains from using leather bags, or shoes or furniture and even cosmetics tested on animals etc.

 

Lot of people tend to believe that Ayurveda is vegan or Ayurveda diet is vegetarian , as it is derived from vedic sciences and there is a lot of Hindu religion influence in various Ayurvedic texts. There is a lot of emphasis on satvik diet in Ayurveda, but the truth is that Ayurveda mentions diet and Ayurvedic medicine for all types of people with various modifications based on their preference. 

 

But, wether you like to eat meat, or you are a vegetarian or you follow Veganism, Ayurveda can embrace people with any dietary choices and perfectly fit you in!

 

Although Ayurveda mentions milk and dairy products as a significant part of nourishment, but it does not mean that vegans can’t get that nourishment from plant sources.

 

How Ayurveda can help a Vegan or Vegetarian?

 

Ayurveda’s main goal is to keep a person’s body constitution or three Doshas in a balanced form. When these three doshas are working in an equilibrium, they nourish the seven dhatus (various body organs) and maintain the dhatu samya (balance of organ’s funtions), hence keep the person healthy and away from diseases. Any shift in this balance leads to an illness.

 

An Ayurvedic Practitioner or Doctor with vast knowledge of various Ayurvedic food and medicine can help a vegan and vegetarian to benefits the full effects of Ayurveda without compromising any aspects of its treatment. 

 

For instance, Ayurveda mentions six tastes in its diet and the use of all six tastes in a meal is a sign of a balanced diet. All of these tastes can be achieved by a vegan food choice:

 

  • Madhur (Sweet): Cane sugar, dates, figs, watermelon etc
  • Amla (Sour): Lemon, lime, tomatoes etc.
  • Lavan (Salt): Rock salt, celery etc.
  • Katu (Pungent): Red and green chilly, ginger etc.
  • Tikta (Bitter): Bitter melon, onion, garlic, cacao etc.
  • Kashaya (Astringent): Mint, Pomegranate, avocado etc

 

 

Most of the Ayurvedic Medicine used in Australia is derived from Plants, but in rare occasions may contain milk, milk products or honey etc. So it is very essential for a vegan to ensure that they consult with an Ayurvedic Practitioner to get all the benefits of Ayurvedic Medicine without worrying about having to take any animal products.

 

I hope after reading this article, vegans can feel relaxed that Ayurveda can help them equally and they won’t be missing out on anything, if they follow the advice from an expert Ayurvedic Practitioner.

  • I have been suffering from IBS for quite a few years. My last resort was to see the doctor in Pure Herbal Ayurveda Clinic. Dr. Saini has helped me get my gut back to a itself. I am able to eat Gluten now and my gut issues have reduced quite a lot. I have more energy now.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • Dearest Dr Gurnam, thank you many times over for your treatment I feel very balanced and cured. You have been kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable in what you do. I highly recommend Dr Gurnam and his work in Ayurveda.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
