Two Simple Ayurvedic Practices That Helped Me In 2020

“The great thing about Ayurveda is that its treatments always yield side benefits, not side effects.” – Shubhra Krishan

I have always loved healing my body naturally, without any side effects. Though I was taking allopathy medicines for my cold/cough etc I realized over time it was just working on the symptoms and not the root cause. That is where I was blown away after getting a deeper understanding of Ayurveda. To this date, Ayurveda has helped me increasing my body’s immunity & reducing my intake of allopathy medicine by 75%.

In 2020, one of my biggest health challenges was Mouth Ulcers. I had no idea why was it occurring every other week. This was causing me a lot of issues even while chewing food.

I would like to share how just by implementing 2 simple things Ayurveda helped me immensely in eradicating the issue. I have not had even a single instance of mouth ulcer since the time I implemented these two Ayurvedic practices.

  1. Oil Pulling: Oil pulling is done by swishing oil around the mouth for a few minutes and then spitting the oil out. This is one practice I have been doing for many months. Oil pulling comes with numerous benefits i.e. it refreshes the breath, pulls out bacteria, debris, and other toxins from the mouth, mitigates mouth ulcers, etc.
  2. Tongue Scrapping: Tongue scrapping has several benefits that help improve oral health. Another practice that I do before brushing my teeth is I use a tongue scraper to clean my tongue. I used to think, the toothbrush does the same thing, but after doing some research, I found tongue scraper is much more efficient. Research also says how tongue scrapping is effective to eradicate bad breath, getting rid of toxins, improving digestive health, etc.

These are the two Ayurvedic tricks I did in 2020 that have helped me tremendously and wanted to share them with you guys. I plan to continue this for the rest of my life.

Also sharing another article that talks about simple Ayurvedic tricks. Do give it a read, maybe if not all, practice one and see what advantages it is giving you.

Health for all. Everyone, everywhere, every day
