PTSD (POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER)
WHAT DOES IT DO TO YOU? HOW CAN YOU MINIMIZE NEGATIVE EFFECTS?
Are you prone to a problem with 'PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder)'?
Trauma offers us the opportunity to understand and respond more deeply to all human suffering. Trauma can be transformed into blessing and gift. Among the various steps of moving beyond trauma, the willingness to become vulnerable again may be the most difficult step.
Trauma may cause musculo-skeletal tension, especially in the pelvic floor, lower gut, belly, chest, throat, and jaw. Releasing this tension can help in the processing of trauma.
As much as the traumatic events were terrible, avoid rejecting the pain you suffered as a result. Pain is not the enemy, but a natural part of the grieving process.
No matter how you have suffered, be grateful to God. One of the most impressive things I learned from my travels in Muslim countries is the Islamic habit of saying, "Al-humdulillah" (praise be to God) for even the bad things that happen. This phrase give unique ability to transform trauma into a gift.

Potential causes increase and disturb your imbalanced doshas and biocharacteristics, causing them to accumulate and spiral out of control.

As a dosha or biocharacteristic accumulates in your body according to your dietary and lifestyle habits, it is more and more likely to cause disease.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKSARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?
WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?Ayurveda strengthens the body, in addition to addressing the disorder. It take a holistic, systemic approach, instead of focusing only on the disorder in question. Ayurveda shows a person how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using materials from home, so they can optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing with an exceptional focus on digestion.
HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of biocharaceristics (gunas). For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.
On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalanced biocharacteristics. By eating an optimal diet that balances your biocharacteristics, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.
