Ayurveda, the ancient Hindu science of medicine, was developed over thousands of years ago (with initial mentions found in the Atharva Veda) and is based centrally on the concept of balance. This balance refers to the equilibrium between the mind and physical health to maintain a proper functioning body existing in perfectly harmonious co-existence. Based centrally around the usage of herbs and other natural remedies, Ayurveda has historically worked wonders in various aspects of life and well-being.This includes improving digestion, maintaining heart health, increasing height and maintaining an overall well-being.
When does Ayurveda flourish : If anything aids the flourishing of Ayurveda and herb growth, it is the rains, or the season of monsoon. The months of July-September provide the optimum temperature and environment required for proper growth of herbs, and in turn, is the best time for bodily growth as well. Advancements in science and technology and extensive research has proved, that the maximum amount of growth of the body takes place during the rainy season.
Understanding the concept of Vata dosha : Vata is a concept that, according to the ancient science of Ayurveda, governs all movement of the human body, along with regulating almost all bodily systems such as the nervous system and the elimination or excretory system. When the Vata dosha dominates (which is usually congruous with the Monsoon season), it is said that you tend to be more energetic and creative. Greater energy leads you to be more enthusiastic and lively, thus aiding your growth process as well.
Growth in height, however, is not universal in all cases. It is mostly seen in people aged 25 or below, as during that period, the bones are still relatively soft and developing.
