4 Stages of Ayurvedic Healing

September 13, 2013    BY Kathryn Templeton

Calming your symptoms is like managing a rowdy teenager! You start with a low-key approach and, if needed, move on to additional measures. Ayurveda’s 4-stage healing process begins with dinacharya, a daily routine (including asana, pranayama, and meditation) designed for your specific needs. If more healing is required, you’ll work with spices and the 6 tastes in food and then, if needed, use ayurvedic practices such as shirodhara (pouring warm oil on the forehead) and abhyanga (oil massage). Finally, if you are still out of balance, you will use herbs for healing.
