3 Simple Self-Care Ayurvedic Routines to Stay Healthy

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian alternative medicine system and is still used nowadays. Based on 5000 years old knowledge, it seeks to achieve balance within your body based on the physiology type you fall into.

3 self-care routines you can easily incorporate into your daily life are the following:

1- Scraping your Tongue

Scraping your tongue first thing in the morning will allow you to get rid of the toxins your body has rejected overnight and tune into your health state (thickness of the layer, colour etc). You might want to reduce your food intake, eat healthier or detox based on this morning check. Traditional ayurvedic tongue cleaners are made of copper which is well-known to contact kill bacteria - hence really hygienic and easier to stay clean.

2- Drinking from a copper bottle

Apart from being a real piece of art and creating well-being from just looking at it (and holding it), copper water bottles have many health benefits. As a matter of fact, copper is the third most prevalent mineral within the body, It helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function, and it contributes to iron absorption.

3- Using a Neti Pot

Use a neti pot (nasal irrigator) to rinse off nasal congestion, alleviate nasal allergies (by removing allergens from nasal passages), solve sinus problems or get rid of colds. It has been used for centuries in India, as part of Ayurveda, and it is common to use prior to pranayama (yogic respiration exercises) in order to improve breathing.
