Ayurveda for a strong immune system!

Ayurveda für ein starkes Immunsystem!

A strong immune system not only supports us in dealing with pathogens, viruses and infections, but also prevents imbalances and secondary diseases. The Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle offers a range of preventive health measures for a long, healthy life.

But from an Ayurvedic perspective, how can we optimize our immune defense and which factors should we take into account?

Strengthen Agni - increase Ojas is the motto!

Around 80% of our immune cells are located in the intestine and benefit from healthy intestinal flora. According to Ayurvedic principles, a strong digestive fire (Agni) is necessary for a healthy intestinal flora so that we can eliminate undigested metabolic residues (Ama).

When we break down our food well, absorb the nutrients and digest the components well, Ojas is formed. Ojas means radiance and stands for the subtle end product of an optimal tissue process. Ojas is synonymous with life energy and a strong immune system.

However, if we damage our intestinal flora with an unhealthy diet and lifestyle through alcohol, medication, a low-fiber and inflammatory diet, but also through long-term stress, this has a negative effect on our resistance (Bala).

Strengthen the immune system using Ayurveda!

  1. A type-appropriate and healthy diet that is easy to digest promotes Ojas and thus strengthens the immune system. Ayurveda relies on a predominantly plant-based diet with vegetables, legumes, grains and healthy fats. Milk, ghee, almonds and amla are some of the most popular Rasayana foods that strengthen us and keep us healthy.

  2. In order to strengthen the digestive power (Agni), we eat regularly, avoid snacks and do not eat too large quantities per meal. The main meal should be eaten at lunchtime, as this is when our digestive power is at its strongest.

  3. Rasayanas, in the form of plant powders such as the product Balyam , strengthen the immune system. Guduchi, Amalaki, Tulsi, Yashtimadhu, Pippali play an important role in Ayurvedic herbal medicine to support the immune system. Amalaki, the powder of the Amla fruit, contains a lot of vitamin C. The fruit is also the basis of the best-known spice Chyavanprash, which is often stirred into warm milk.

  4. The Ayurvedic morning routine with oil pulling and tongue scraping strengthens your immune system by removing bacteria and toxins.

  5. Lifestyle also has an enormous influence on our immune system. Short nights, little exercise and a lot of stress have a negative effect.

Now you can support your immune system with the Ayurvedic herbs from prana for you.

According to the Indian healing system Ayurveda, not only our physical condition is important for a well-functioning immune system, but also our mental and mental state.
