Keep Calm & Eat Aam

Happy Mango Days.

Summer vacations are incomplete without eating Mangoes. Mango, commonly known as Aam, is called the ‘King of Fruits’. It is one of the most consumed fruits during the summer season and has many varieties including Alphanso, Kesar, etc.

Ayurved mentioned the properties of different stages of Mangoes along with their, health benefits. Many recipes having the main ingredient as mango are also described briefly in Ayurved. Here we are enlightening about common rules for eating Mangoes for gaining maximum benefits.

As we all know, Mangoes are an excellent source of nourishment for the body as they are a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and potassium. Due to this, the appropriate daily intake of Mango, alone or along with milk, can help improve appetite and boost energy levels. It also improves immunity and protects from heatstroke.

Generally, we can classify Mangos in the following 3 categories

1. Unripe Mangoes – When mangoes are not properly ripened they are extremely sour and very hot in nature. They vitiate all three doshas as well as rakta or blood. Therefore, always ensure that full-grown mangoes are well ripened and sweet before eating.

2. Naturally ripened Mangoes – The tree-ripened mangoes are heavy in nature as compared to artificially ripened ones. Tree-ripened mango has more of a sour taste than artificially ripened mango, which may lead to pitta provocation, but is superior in terms of calming Vata.

3. Artificially ripened Mangoes –According to Ayurveda, interestingly artificially ripened mangoes are light to digest. They reduce both Vata and Pitta. They are more sweet and ideal for eating.

The way in which Mangoes are consumed and their properties -

1. Squeezed mango – A squeezed mango is considered to be lighter and easier to digest than a sliced mango.

2. Sliced mango is very sweet and tasty, cooling, nourishing, and reduces Vata dosha.

3. Mango juice / Aamras is tonic, heavy, laxative, and pacifies Vata – pitta. It tends to increase Kapha but is nourishing and strength-giving in nature.

4. Mango mixed with milk – you can blend mango and milk or eat a sliced mango and follow it with a cup of warm milk or saffron milk. Mango mixed with milk calms Vata and pitta, is a tasty, nourishing, tonic, aphrodisiac, and improves complexion. It is sweet and cooling.

Dietary rules while eating Mangos

1. Always monitor the number of mangoes while consuming them. 1 to 2 mangoes or 1 bowl of Aamras is recommended for healthy adults with a good appetite.

2. Do not consume mango or Aamras at bedtime because it is very heavy for digestion.

3. Always add a pinch of dried ginger powder in Aamras. It will be beneficial for digestion.

4. You can add cow milk in Aamras which makes it lighter and easily absorbable. Don’t add other than cow milk to it. Otherwise, it will be heavier and will have an additional load on digestion.

5. Add a pinch of black pepper powder if you are prone to Kapha disorders and also recommended for the kid age group because kids are more prone to Kapha disorders.

6. Recommendations for Vata Prakruti – It reduces Vata. It is a good tonic, provides good muscle strength, and is good for immunity also. Adding pure cow ghee or dried ginger powder is best for Vata prakruti people but always keep eye on digestion while consuming it.

7. Recommendation for Pitta Prakruti – Slightly unripe mangoes are Pittakar. Add some cow milk and 1 teaspoon of cow ghee, and a pinch of cardamom powder to it. It will make it easier to digest.

8. Recommendation for kapha Prakriti – Aamaras proves Kaphakar in kapha prakriti people. It will be troublesome if they are already having a low digestive fire. Adding black pepper powder will be helpful. Restrict the quantity of Aamras. Try to avoid a mixture of Aamras and milk and ghee.

Make your Mental Health a priority by connecting with Turyaa

3 idiots, the movie Is a perfect blend of all emotions. On top of it, all the characters from the movie teach us many life lessons in an interesting manner. Most of the lessons are associated with psychology and mental health which are much-neglected health issues.

Raju from the movie attempts suicide after struggling to get good marks, Farhan was seen to be ready to change his career due to peer pressure from his parents. Chatur is always ready for completion without having knowledge and the Virus of the college is like pressure testing equipment for brains that decide who is fit for the education. Rancho, the hero of the movie, is rescuing all the characters with his psychological fundas……All is well.

We all are surrounded by such characters but understanding the situation and standing as a Rancho for yourself is very important. Most of the time psychological and physical problems are interlinked but people often seem to neglect the psychological problems.

Ayurveda always mentioned health is a balance of mental, physical, and spiritual wellness altogether and equally emphasizes mental health also.

Ayurveda describes three Gunas of Mind named Satwa (Balance), Raja (Arrogance), and Tama (Indolence). Ayurveda also describes that a possibility for mental illness is due to an imbalance of the ‘tamas’ or ‘rajas’ in the mind which are the reactive tendencies that vitiate other doshas.

Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, its imbalance, prakruti of individuals, etc are also having an impact on Manas gunas. Diet and lifestyle also play an important role in mental illness according to Ayurveda. Rajas and Tamas aahar are responsible for the vitiation of Manas Doshas and hence mental illness. Various chronic mental disorders like anxiety, neurosis, depression, insomnia, etc. are linked with wrong diet and lifestyle. the

Neglecting the symptoms due to self unawareness or due to social stigma is very common in mental disorders. Approach toward treatment is also improper and neglected due to many reasons. Understanding symptoms at an early stage and seeking help as early as possible is very necessary.

Changes in sleeping patterns, loss of appetite, Impulsive decision-making, Turning to drugs or alcohol in moments of distress, and Suicidal thoughts are early and indicative symptoms for which professional help is a must. All the symptoms of mental health disorders can be incredibly dangerous for both emotional and physical health.

Ayurveda mentioned Sattvavajaya Chikitsa for mental disorders and is very similar to modern psychotherapy. Proper diet, exercise, lifestyle modifications, music, and mantra therapies are suggested along with medicines and panchakarma. Thus, Sattvavajaya plays a significant role in the maintenance of a harmonious state between these three important factors – intellect, memory, and patience, ultimately leading to a happy healthy state of the individual.

Mental Health Stigma

A Big Challenge For Society
  • A good friend struggling for getting admission into professional courses attempts suicide, a case of neglected depression.
  • Senior citizen struggling to memorize home address, finally brought into a nearby police station, a case of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Small fights between kids concluded with a serious injury to one of them due to uncontrolled, extreme anger, a case of behavioral problems in kids.
  • Stress at job places, depression, anxiety during educational ages, bad relationships, money vs need struggles and its stress, postpartum depression, menopausal depression, loneliness, etc are common invisible impact factors observed everywhere these days. These have increased in manifolds after the pandemic period.

According to Ayurveda, health is a fine balance of all factors including physical, mental, and spiritual health. But all of the above stress factors impact mental health the most.

More to that, the stigma associated with mental health problems is a much bigger obstacle in treating mental health disorders.

Physical and psychological health are two sides of the same coin which always have interlinked impacts on each other. But the picture related to psychological health awareness, treatment and education are much different. According to Ayurveda, imbalances in Rajas and Tamas Gunas of Mana lead to mental illness. This imbalance can be corrected with proper lifestyle modifications. Assurance or counseling ( Aashwasan chikitsa) is also part of the treatment according to Ayurveda. In fighting against social stigma, this assurance from family, friends, counselors, and society is very important.

• Around 60% of adults with a mental health illness don’t receive care – NAMI
• 98% of people agree that mentally ill people experience stigma and discrimination – Mental Health Foundation

Stigmas in society are commonplace. They can be difficult to dismantle and overcome once they become established over many years. The pressure of mental health stigma can come from family, friends, coworkers, and society on a broader level. It can prevent people living with mental illness from getting help, fitting into society, and leading happy and comfortable lives.

Stigma against a person living with a mental health condition can make their symptoms worse and make it hard to recover. A person may also be less likely to seek help if they live with stigma.

Social isolation, poor housing, unemployment and poverty are all linked to mental ill-health. So stigma and discrimination can trap people in a cycle of illness. The effects of stigma can include social isolation, low self-esteem, hopelessness, shame, avoiding treatment, worsening symptoms, discrimination at work, etc.

In the above scenarios, the role of assurance therapy ( Aashwasan chikitsa ) described by Ayurveda plays a very important role. Proper counseling, motivation, encouragement, and appreciation are essential and very crucial steps in fighting against mental illness.

So on the occasion of “Mental Health Awareness Month”, let’s try to fight against stigma by

1. Understanding basic symptoms of mental illness – Ignorance is very common in such types of illness. Neglecting a single symptom for a long period often creates huge negative impacts. Hence understanding the early symptoms and seeking early help will be the first required step.

2. Helping people to take consultation from doctors at a very early stage – Many times, people find their friends, colleagues, and co-workers showing symptoms related to mental illness but choose to ignore them. It’s everyone’s duty to counsel him/her for early help from professionals.

3. Try to push people to complete their whole treatment until recovery – social stigma is the main reason behind incomplete treatment many times. So pushing people with mental illness for proper and complete treatment is much needed.

4. Educating people about mental health – Educating people from school age about mental illness, its treatment, social stigma and its impact on patients, ways of proper help should be included for better management of illness

So let’s help each other to fight against mental illness and the social stigma associated with it because this stigma is a much bigger obstacle or challenge in the treatment of illness.

Time to Care for our “Superheroes” at Home!!

“Men will be Men ”, this saying catches our attention each time. We think of how they manage responsibilities both indoors & outdoors with all the enthusiasm, mischief & excitement. With changing times both Men & Women are interchanging the roles & responsibilities to take care of the balance in the family. But when it comes to Men’s Health, our Superheroes are always seen putting the health & well-being of the family first. On the occasion of International Men’s Health Week, let’s take a minute to know about how to care for their health!!

The roles of Men traditionally in India have been of the earning members in the family. The responsibilities & constant peer pressure could lead to stress, irregular sleep & eating patterns & high level of mental health situations. With different sets of expectations, emotions and physical strengths, their everyday struggles are different. Understanding them and taking care of our SUPERHEROES is extremely important to care for the family’s Balance.

Let’s put a quick light on some of the statistics which will make us understand how essential it is to make them aware to care for their Health –

• Among men age 65 and over, more than 39% have heart disease, compared to about 27% of women in the same age group

• This disabling neurological disease affects about 50% more men than women

• Women have higher rates of depression, but men have higher suicide rates

• While men in India are prone to develop lifestyle diseases in their 30s, women tend to develop them a couple of decades later – in their 50s, says a study

If we observe minutely, all the above facts are linked with incorrect lifestyle, excess stress, incorrect habits & abuse at times knowingly or unknowingly.

Work pressure, stress, weekend party culture, smoking and drinking, sedentary lifestyle, incorrect food habits and irregular sleeping patterns are the main reasons which are affecting Men more than women. It is the vicious cycle that can further lead to lifestyle disorders like high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular problems, etc. These lifestyle disorders are observed to be increased in more manifolds post-pandemic.

Apart from above-mentioned health issues, men are observed to suffer most commonly from digestive troubles, weight gain, migraine, musculoskeletal disorders, eye disorders, cancers due to over-compromised working culture, high stress, irregular habits and excess screen time.

Nowadays there are clearly more conversations around mental health concerns but many still don’t have the courage to reach out and seek help. It may even be a harder battle for men who are asked to ‘man-up’ every time they show any vulnerability. The complex gender dynamics, especially stereotypes, of our society make them consider seeking help for better mental health contrary to the concept of being strong and becoming unsuitable for the role of a provider.
every time.

Ayurved mentioned one key solution to all the above problems. A Balanced & State of Equilibrium can be achieved if we follow a Dinacharya specific to Men’s health needs.
