Are you struggling with tiredness?
Are you waking up tired each day, hitting the snooze button, wishing for just a few more minutes in bed?
Are you constantly having to resort to stimulants such as tea, coffee, coke, sugary snacks – just to get you through the day?
Are you having trouble falling asleep, or sleeping through the night, or even waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep?
Is your sleep not refreshing enough?
How is your digestion and elimination?
Are you struggling with concentration, decision making? Or even with doing activities that you love to do with your loved ones?
Are you struggling with unwanted weight that doesn’t seem to stay off, in spite of eating healthily?
Do you feel stressed a lot of the time?
Are your hormones out of keel? Your thyroid, your menstrual cycle, or perhaps your menopause has been really trying?
Have you been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, or diabetic?
Are you a subject to some immune issues – like frequent colds, coughs, infections, allergies and intolerances?
I bet you know five people with one of the following diseases of broken down immune system:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Grave’s disease
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBS)
As a culture we are out of sync with energy integrity, which disrupts our immune function.
When you develop abnormal circadian rhythms, you risk obesity, diabetes, depression, anxiety, and seasonal affective disorder to name a few proven problems.
Ojas in Ayurveda is likened to the gel of our immune system. It is our refined energy. Ojas is an end product of excellent digestion and superior tissue formation. Ojas creates and protects the functional communication between all the cells and systems in our body. Our cells perform many duties, including absorption of nutrients, detoxification, communication with other cells and organs, and performing their own particular duties within any given organ system (eg brain cells, specific organ cells, muscle cells, blood cells etc).
Common factors that contribute to destruction of Ojas are:
- Being sleep deficient
- Not honouring our tiredness
- Overscheduling and overwhelm
- Using caffeine, sugar and chocolate to get us through the day
- Habitual stress and worry
- Perpetuating unhealthy relationships
- Disordered eating patterns
- Lacking self-confidence and indulging in negative self-talk
- Stagnation of bodily fluids due to the lack of enough daily movement
- Shallow breathing
