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 strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • 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.
