My exposure to Ayurvedic practices has actually made a difference. I am healthier, with better memory, calmness, and not looking my age. Ayurvedic is literally the "science of life."

I do oil pulling every day. I explain it more here. For me, I have no more pain in my teeth. I used to have pus build-up at night, in my mouth, which seemed to come from my teeth. I assumed I had an infection in my mouth or teeth. This is not happening anymore. Mouth seems healed, and teeth don't hurt.

I use Ayurvedic essential oils, namely frankincense and rosemary. Rosemary has helped my memory and I sniff it every day. The frankincense is inhaled, and rubbed on my wrists and the bottom of my feet. I feel better during the day - I can't explain but I find a peace, and calm. Other oils used in Ayurvedi include tulsi (Holy Basil), neem (I brush my teeth with a neem toothpaste), turmeric, jojoba, and licorice (or anise).

I use Ayurvedic spices - mostly turmeric combined with other spices - but I use turmeric pretty much daily. I use fennel frequently, and eat the bulb.I also use cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg daily. Other Ayurvedic spices include cumin, coriander (I love using coriander!), saffron, fenugreek, basil, and black pepper. I use Himlayan rock salt, which is also believed to be better in Ayurveda.

I use a neti pot with diluted sea salt solution, as used in Auyerveda. It flushes the sinuses and helps you with fighting infection. It helps clear the sinuses. I no longer have nights of not being able to breathe out of one or both nostrils.

I practice dry brushing, as well as using a brush in the shower. Dry brushing helps your circulation, exfoliation, and stimulating your lymphatic system (which works to remove waste in your cellular system), and may help break down toxins. This is also found in roots of Ayurveda.

Yoga is an old Ayurvedic therapy. It promotes calmless, self reflection, and helps build muscle strength (and healing for certain types of injuries).

Massage is an Ayurvedic therapy. Using Ayurveda oils, massage promotes calmness, relaxation, circulation, and removes toxins. You should feel rejuvenated and invigorated and rejuvenated, but may also feel a bit spent. Make sure to drink water after a massage.

Mud baths are healing and roots are in Ayurveda. They draw out toxins and impurities, nourish and exfoliates your skin.

Tapping and pressure therapy go way back to Ayurveda. It is based on certain relationships in an area of your body to other areas of your body - as in [pressure points on the bottom of your feet may help other areas to rejuvenate other areas, like your adrenal glands, colon and bladder, etc. Tapping (EFT) can help anxiety, remove emotional blocks, help body circulation ,for example. Tapping areas and getting a rhythm in certain areas can excite and stimulate certain systems.

Other foods/additives that are used in Ayurvedic therapy include almonds, coconut, ghee, Ashwagandha and psyllium.

Ayurveda is fascinating and there is so much more to learn. Ayurveda began in India as a way to get in tune with self and earth, to heal and be healthy. Alternative ways to promote healing and to prevent afflictions are so important to me.
