De-stress with आयुर्वेद
The term 'Stress' is difficult to define. Because it is subjected to the sensation associated with various symptoms and reasons that differ from one person to another.
Even though it may not pose harmful to the physique, it gradually overtakes our health vulnerably.
Studies show that 70 to 90 per cent of adults visit primary care physicians for stress related problems, which is said to be one of the largest killer in today’s fast-paced times.
Ayurveda theory articulates that, stress is a state of mental/emotional/physical strain, which is said to be a Manasa Dosha (Mental Disorder). Many of us feel, we are under more stress than our parents were 30 years ago.
The goal and priority of the contemporary human is to possess materialistic status and fast economic growth, thus resulting in losing the virtue and value of life। Hence ultimately we all succumb to the so called stress, which is also created by a highly competitive atmosphere, sedentary lifestyle and urbanised living with excessive needs, lack of time, financial crisis and excessive commitments and workaholism। The high levels of stress or chronic stress crumbles our immune system, which is the root cause of psychosomatic disorders such as* *Gastrointestinal disorders*Ischemic heart disease*Diabetic mellitus*Bronchial Asthma*Migraine*Arthritis*Anxiety, depression, Insomnia etc।,

One can’t get rid of stress, but can manage it better ।To reduce the stress and lead to better quality of life Ayurveda Provides clear, cohesive regimens such as Shirodhara & Abhyanga for stress management and Panchakarma for stress-related diseases।

India’s Glorious Scientific Tradition- research had taken deep roots in India
Such a description of the cell is not possible without a microscope. This means that the author of Vriksh Ayurveda, must have had the knowledge of the microscope thousands of years ago. At that time, no one in the west knew about it. This was the scientific vision of Vriksh Ayurveda. If it is considered to be written even in 200 AD, then let us see as to when the west gained knowledge about the microscope and botany. It was only about 200 or 300 years ago and they have been acknowledged as great scientists and our country, which had this knowledge ages back, was called the country of snakes and snake charmers! We need to contemplate on how many years it must have taken to carry out the research and then acquire such a deep scientific foresight, because in no other country has botany been studied so long ago and in such detail as in India. However, our scholars of botany do not have this in the textbooks because they do not know Sanskrit. Whether they know the language or not, if in the future, they make Sanskrit compulsory for the science students, then the path to the history of science in this country will be wide open. How can anyone who does not know Sanskrit learn about Vriksh Ayurveda?
