Two flights and a shuttle later, I arrived at the beautiful Raj
The allure of relaxation hit me rather quickly. I was fast asleep within seconds of arriving.
Woke up just in time for lunch.
After lunch I had a meeting with guest services and a scheduled health consult with the on site Maharishi Ayurveda doctor.
The easiest way to understand the unique approach of Maharishi Ayurveda is to review the description of nature that modern physics gives us.
Physics tells us the world exists in layers. The surface levels of nature behave like particles and are the domain of classical physics. The deeper, more subtle levels of nature behave like wave patterns in fields and are the domain of quantum physics.
Modern medicine is a health care system based on the molecular level in classic physics.
Maharishi Ayurveda is a health care system based on the analysis of health from the deepest quantum mechanical level in nature.
Vedic science calls the first three fields, (or Dosha's) Vata, Pitta, Kapha and gives detailed descriptions of their structure and activity within the body.
Maharishi Ayurveda addresses and neutralizes imbalances that are present in all three fields (Dosha's)
Vata governs bodily functions concerned with movement.
Pitta governs bodily functions concerned with heat, metabolism and energy production.
Pitta's main activities are to control the chemical transformation processes associated with digestion and metabolism.
Kapha is mainly concerned with fluid balance and the buildup of the gross structure of the body including fat, tissue and musle.
Here's my current state. I'm some place in the middle.
My "Ama" should be at a zero. Ama is what makes a person sluggish.
My Ojas" should be at 4+ I'm not clear just yet on what this all means. I only know, you want less Ama and more Ojas"
Above is the every day activities. For everyone.
And here is my tailored to me-treatment schedule, which starts tomorrow.
And so...let's see how Day 1 goes tomorrow.
