Breast Health: The Ayurvedic View
Supporting Breast Wellness
By Mark Toomey, Ph.D.
Director of Maharishi Ayurveda Programs at The Raj Ayurvedic Spa
The entire ayurvedic understanding of wellness is encapsulated in the Maharishi Vedic Science Sanskrit expression "Heyam Dhukam Anagatam."
It means "Avert the danger that has not yet come." The statement captures the essence of the ayurvedic approach and an enormous depth of wisdom. It puts into practical terms how to naturally maintain high levels of mental and physical well-being by catching imbalances while they are small and very manageable.
A word about the phrase "well-being": in Maharishi Ayurveda this state of "well-being" includes both the body and consciousness together, which includes mind, ego, intellect and emotions. It refers to a worthwhile, stable state of peak experience physically, emotionally and mentally. It includes joy, energy, stamina, clarity, connectivity, emotional richness, adaptability and the ability to handle large and small stresses.
