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 consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • 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!
