Ayurveda is an ancient (6000 year old) medicine of India which is based on the balance of 5 foundational elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water & Space) within bodily systems, using diet, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing. The integrity of each Ayurvedic Element in YOU grants the integrity of your Wellness (or your Health & Well-being).
In terms of Ayurveda, Radiations can disturb 2 of the 5 Ayurvedic elements being Air & Water.
Ayurvedic Air element
The Air element governs Environmental Wellness. It effects one mentally and motivationally in life.
Balance of the Air element is found through correction of the environment that cells are formed in.
Radio (‘Air waves’), Wifi & Wireless internet are among those radiations that commonly disturb the Air element.
An out of balance Air element (or sick environment) is often behind Autoimmune diseases, some Cancers, some Learning disorders, Epigenetic disorders, Mental instability, Anxiety and Depression.
Note: From a mystical perspective, the more subtle ethereal aspects of ‘The Nature’ are involved here. They include the Angelic realms, the Devic Kingdom (nature spirits, faeries, sprites, archangels, some dieties, etc) and crystal energies. It’s no accident these have been traditionally referenced in relation to the health of the environment, psychic influences, mental states & thought forms which are all properties of the Air element. Radiation ill-effects can be strongly considered here in regard to the consciousness of humanity & its well-being. Ultimately, environmental harmony is the objective for peace in all the above.
Ayurvedic Water element
Radiation can effect Spiritual Wellness also depending on the type of radiation.
Spiritual Wellness in Ayurvedic terms is governed by the ‘Water Element’. It effects ones inspiration, creativity, emotional state & introspective capacity in life.
Microwave radiations are the most prevalent man-made ‘Water element’ disturbing cause through mobile phones, mobile towers & microwaved foods, etc.
Lunar radiations tend to impact & disturb the Water element also for as much as 3 weeks per month at varying degrees peaking at the full moon.
A disturbed Water element can upset or trigger hydration issues, kidney & bladder complaints, shock & trauma, skin & hair health issues, cerebrospinal fluid disturbances, subtle anatomy disturbances (etheric, chakras, astral &/or causal bodies), karmic influences, parasitic influences (both physical & energetic), meditation difficulty, aggravation of ADD Spectrum Disorders (ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspergers, Bipolar, Schizoid & some Learning disorders), Mental illness, Addiction related issues, unstable emotional states, sleep disorders & unusual or disturbing dreams, etc.
Avoiding these radiations where possible, but also nullifying their ill-effects is important to keep one Spiritually stable whilst maintaining Water element integrity.
