Urja Vidya is necessary for developing concentration, patience, mental clarity, and creativity. Both of them are associated with immunity and mental strength.
Ayurved and Sanjivani Vidya
In ancient oral tradition of Ray Ayurveda, there are seven protocols to improve your immunity, health and spirituality. These seven Ayurveda protocols are the seven ways to study the herbs, human body system, the 114 chakras and 72000 nadis, and the diseases. Among these seven Ayurveda protocols, the following three protocols are very important for immunity, health and healing. The first one is the traditional vata-pitta-kapha protocol (Dhatu Vidya). The other two vital protocols are Sanjivani pathway protocol (Sanjivani Vidya), and the Urja pathway protocol (Urja Vidya). Today, I will discuss mainly the Sanjivani pathway protocol and the Urja pathway protocols, which are studied to improve immunity in inline with the 114 chakras in human body.
The links between immunity and the 114 chakra system are very deep. The main soldiers of your immune system are the white blood cells (sveta rakta dhatu). They are the inner-army of your protection. Herbs like Amla (Vitamin C) boosts the white blood cells to fight infection. There are eleven specific chakras to boost your immunity. Each of these eleven chakras have their own primary herbs, rasayana and bhasmas to improve immunity, healing energy and the spirituality.
Ayurveda Immunity and the Key Herbs
The name of these eleven immunity chakras are: Sanjivani chakra, Ayus chakra, Ojash chakra, Vinayak chakra, Vignesh chakra, MahaPadma chakra, Madhu chakra, Sudha chakra, Harsha chakra, Dripta chakra and the Urja chakra. They are the key immunity chakras to fight against diseases and viruses.
The eleven key herbs associated with the eleven immunity chakras are: Giloy, Amla, Ashwagandha, Pippali, Basil, Ginger, Ajwain, Turmeric, Black pepper, Clove, and Fenugreek. In Ayurveda various combinations of these herbs are used to improve immunity. They have a separate balancing and dosage rules.
Sanjivani Vidya and the Chakras
The Sanjivani Vidya is the knowledge of revitalizing the life force. Sanjivani Vidya is focused on the teachings of 114 chakras. Here, proper chakra signaling is part of the communication process that governs the basic activities of the immunity chakras and coordinates multiple-chakra actions. Along with these eleven herbs, there are three special herbs that are used. The ability of the chakras to perceive and correctly respond to the changes in the environment is the basis of development of the brain cell repair, tissue repair, homeostasis and the immunity. Sanjivani Vidya is primarily associated with the Sanjivani chakra, Ayus chakra, Ojash chakra, Madhu chakra, and the Sudha chakra.
Urja Vidya Immunity and the Chakras
Urja Vidya is the knowledge of strength and vitality. The Urja chakra removes the fatigue from overwork, blood deficiency, illness, emotional upset and insomnia. It is meant to restore drained reserves of life force (ojas) and to preserve strength, stamina, and vitality, while stalling the course of aging. The key chakras associated with the Urja vidya are Vinayak chakra, Vignesh chakra, Harsha chakra, Dripti chakra and the Padma chakras.
Five Key Practices for Immunity Boosting
1 Herbs and Roots
Ayurveda mainly uses herbs and roots with medical value, either used standalone or mixed with other ingredients to manage the vata, pitta and kapha levels in the body. This helps in maintaining a healthy immune system. In Ayurveda, bitter tasting and cooling herbs and foods like amala, turmeric, aloe-vera, neem, kutki, karela, bhumi-amala, punarnava and others are used for both protection as well as boosting the Sanjivani chakra and the health.
2. Fruits and Vegetables:
Vegetables, as well as fruits, nuts, and seeds, are loaded with nutrients that we need to keep our immune systems in top health. In particular, vegetables like cabbage, kale, and broccoli help support the Urja chakra, a key part of our bodies’ natural detoxification process.
3. Regular Exercises
Staying active by following a regular exercise routine — such as walking three times a week — does more than keep you fit and trim. Stay hydrated throughout the day.
4. Vitamins and Minerals
Vegetables full with vitamins A, C, D, and E are critical for immune function. Your immune system also needs Zinc, selenium, and magnesium are minerals to perform at its best.
5. Adequate Sleep:
Getting adequate sleep is extremely important. Those who slept seven hours or less each night were about three percent more likely to develop the virus after exposure. Finding an effective way to regulate personal stress may go a long way toward better overall health.
Staying healthy is more than just practicing a few good techniques when you don’t feel well. It involves a healthy life style of regular exercise, healthy foods, good sleep, and staying hydrated throughout the day. Loneliness and social isolation are very detrimental to health. Immune systems were stronger when you feel optimistic. Make optimism work for you. Try to see the glass as half full, not half empty. Colorful fruits and vegetables that protect against free radicals. Free radicals can damage DNA and other cell components. Fruits and vegetables in a wide array of colors provide the best mix of protective antioxidants to boost overall health and immunity.
