Ayurveda & Femininity

It’s not a story of the past but Oxford Dictionaries have chosen Nari Shakti or women empowerment as the Hindi word of the year 2018, during a session at the Jaipur Literature Festival. Did you know that Ayurveda, the ancient Vedic medicine system, has considered women as Shakti? From the prehistoric era, women are represented as the spring of creation, in whose lap the entire civilization have rocked. Therefore, any disbalance in the health of women actually disrupts the health of the future generation as well. Ayurveda has always been a steady supporter to fight women’s health issues.

Ayurveda and Femininity
Harmones

Women, as compared to men, go through a series of physiological changes during their lifetime. The key changes she faces are- menarche, pregnancy, postpartum and menopause. In all these stages, female hormones play a vital role to intensify the physical and emotional changes. The chief female hormones are prolactin, progesterone and estrogen, that puts an impact on women’s health. Apart from these, there are other secondary hormones such as testosterone, FSH (follicular stimulating hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone). Ayurveda has its own way of describing hormones, of which many of us are unaware. Hormones are referred to as dhatu agni (fire element in tissue).

To maintain the physical and mental health of women and balance all the hormones, iCare has taken birth from the womb of IndusViva. iCare drink has been derived from Ayurveda and backed with modern science. This concoction is available in peach flavour and works wonders for PCOS/PCOD. One of the main ingredients in iCare, asparagus or shatavari, can be traced back to Ayurvedic epoch for its benefits in keeping a check on bleeding, nourishing the uterus, modulating the calcium metabolism and others. Other major ingredients in iCare such as Bioavailable curcumin, Boswellia and Valerian contribute to maintaining overall women well-being.

Even though iCare drink can be helpful in PCOS/PCOD conditions, but all the women must take care of their daily diet to lead a healthy life, along with a controlled lifestyle, sufficient rest and physical exercise. Yoga can be counted as a partner to Ayurveda when it comes to addressing specific female health conditions. Additionally, meditation, pranayama, chanting and asana are essentials in any hale and hearty routine. For innumerable years, Ayurveda has provided a reverential and caring approach for women by restoring balance, satisfying minds, beautifying bodies and providing a healthy life.
