Ayurveda practices ’becoming more popular among women and Yoga students’
Individuals who are benefiting from their Yoga mats might like to explore the practices of ayurveda, which is becoming increasingly popular with people who want to focus on relaxing at the end of a busy day.
Geeta Vara, practitioner of Geeta Vara Ayurveda, explained: "Ayurveda is the sister science of Yoga, so a lot of the principles and philosophies that people follow outside their physical Yoga practice is very much a part of what ayurveda is all about really. They’re both sister sciences and go hand-in-hand."
Ayurveda is a 5000-year-old system of complementary medicine that takes a holistic approach to treating all sorts of ailments, and Ms Vara said individuals are becoming much more willing to embrace alternative practices.
"There’s [been] a general shift now, with people looking for a more natural way of healing themselves or healing their illnesses or conditions. A lot of people have become more intelligent about what they’re putting in their body. There’s a big shift in what people are eating - a massive shift even in people taking more interest in cooking and food, in lifestyle. I think people are much more open now and less sceptical about hearing different ideas," she added.
Those who are interested in learning more about ayurveda could start by using some of the common ayurvedic herbs in their diet.
Turmeric, for example, is said to have numerous therapeutic effects, including helping to maintain healthy skin and preventing blood clots, treating cold symptoms and having anti-allergy properties. The spice can be taken as a capsule supplement or used in cooking deliciously spicy meals - perfect for warming you up on these cold winter nights.
It is also said to help those with conditions like eczema, psoriasis, asthma, arthritis, osteoarthritis and colitis, many of which can flare up and be painful in the colder, wetter months.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
