How Does Ayurvedic Massage Aid De-toxification?


Most of us are constantly looking for novel ways of de-stressing and improving our health. Maintaining a good health is absolutely essential to manage the kind of stressful life we all are living today. Modern medical science is constantly in search of new medications and therapies that can fight against our bodily weaknesses such as fatigue, pain, infections, etc. However, in our struggle to find new effective means to improve health, are we forgetting our own Indian medicinal system that has been there for ages and has been proven to be very effective?
The classics have accepted Ayurvedic Massage, known as Abhyangam, as one among the dinacharyas (daily regimen) for healthy living. Our body is naturally capable of fighting the toxins or the free radicals generated in the body using antioxidant defense system. However, environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke, herbicides and diseased conditions can also spawn harmful free radicals. Therefore, Ayurvedic Massage is recommended for de-toxification of body. Here are 5 distinct mechanisms through which Ayurvedic Massage helps body de-toxification.


1. Fights Against Free Radicals


Ayurvedic Massage is known to nullify the free radicals with the help of the antioxidant thiol present in the body. This reduces the oxidative damage caused to the body by the harmful free radicals that are either produced through biological process or enter the body from external factors such as pollution, smoke, chemicals etc.


2. Increases Antioxidants in Body


Ayurvedic Massage is performed using long, flowing strokes. These typical traditional massage strokes improve blood circulation and restore the oxidant and antioxidant imbalance.


3. Stimulates the Lymphatic System


Lymphatic system works like a sewage system in the body. The lymph nodes trap toxins and ensure that these are removed from the body. Ayurvedic Massage stimulates the lymphatic system and helps to expel toxins or harmful free radicals from the body. Since lymphatic system is involved in maintaining immunity of body, Ayurvedic Massage can effectively boost immunity. Try Ayurvedic Massage if you have been falling sick often

5 Signs Your Body Needs Detoxification

5 Signs Your Body Needs Detoxification


According to some recent estimates, nearly 75 percent of Indian population under 40 years suffers from excessive stress. In view of science stress increases build up of harmful chemicals inside the body. Presence of these harmful toxins in the body can result in lack of energy, tiredness and low immunity that can often make you sick.

Reactive oxygen species or the free radicals are a normal part of our body and we do need some of them for our physiological and metabolic functions. Our body is naturally capable of fighting the harmful toxins in the body and preventing the resulting damage. However, when there is too much build up of harmful toxins in the body it loses its ability to detoxify and such stage is known as “Oxidative Stress”.

Given below are some signals body sends to notify you the build of harmful toxins in the body and immediate need to get rid of it.

1. You Have Constant Low Energy and Stamina


A number of recent studies have shown that oxidative stress may be involved in development of chronic fatigue syndrome. Free oxygen species (also known as free radicals) can enter body through external sources such as exposure to X-rays, ozone, cigarette smoking, air pollutants, industrial chemicals, etc. Build up of these toxins can lead to tiredness, lethargy, low energy and stamina.

2. Your Skin Shows Signs of Premature Ageing


Ageing is inevitable and nothing can prevent this natural process. However, oxidative stress caused by high levels of harmful toxins in the body can speed up the process of skin aging. Oxidative stress is probably considered as the single most harmful contributor to skin aging. Accumulated free radical causes damage to the cell components and leads to signs of skin aging such as fine wrinkles, thin and transparent skin, dry and itchy skin etc.

3. You Suffer From Frequent Headaches


Oxidative stress is also believed to play a role in the pathogenesis diseases of the central nervous system. Evidence suggests that oxidative stress can be responsible for conditions such as headache or migraines characterized by severe throbbing pain. Scientists have found that people, who report constant headaches, tend to have low level of total antioxidants and increased oxidative stress index.

4. You Suffer From Acne Problems


Acne is the most common skin problems mainly observed in adolescents and youth. Clinical studies have reported that people with acne show presence of oxidative stress.  Oxidative stress along with inflammation plays a critical role in acne pathogenesis.  In fact in acne prone skin, the release of reactive oxygen specials (free radicals) is held responsible for initiating the inflammatory pathway in acne.

5. You Have Developed Problems Related to Fertility


Oxidative stress has been identified as a contributing factor for infertility problems in both males and females. Oxidative stress caused due to build up of harmful toxins in the body can affect the sperm quality and functions in men. In women, oxidative stress can cause problems such as endometriosis (a disorder of uterine lining), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and unexplained infertility. It can also lead to spontaneous abortion, recurrent pregnancy loss and some other pregnancy related complications.
