PART ONE: BEFORE CONCEIVING Introduction Pregnancy is one of the most dynamic, challenging, and rewarding times that a woman will experience in her life. She will certainly come to face some very interesting changes that she couldn’t even perceive possible, emotionally, physically and spiritually. It is imperative during this time that she has adequate support and knowledge to sustain her well-being throughout pregnancy, childhood and beyond. The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, based on the patterns and energy found in nature, provides a complete system of support that will guide a pregnant woman with care and confidence through this amazing time.
Sankya Philosophy Within a seed, the intelligence of the entire plant resides. In a nourishing environment, a single pit of a peach grows a ten foot tree. Purusha, or pure conciousness is represented by this dormant seed, unmanifested but with endless potential. The first step of creation is referred to as prakriti, also the word used to describe an individual’s constitution that is set at birth. Mahat describes the universal intelligence that brings prakriti into manifestation. Without the impulsive moment of prakriti, where the process of creation begins, Purusha and Mahat lie dormant.
This concept can be applied to the sperm and ovum coming together in the moment of conception. Within the egg lies the intelligence but without that action of the sperm meeting the egg, the egg and sperm would die off without any result. With that creative impulse, the reaction of a new life begins, with inumerous processes beginning to unfold. Balance Upon Conception Because the impulse of creation is such a critical moment, it is of utmost importance that both the man and woman trying to conceive undergo a deep cleansing process in order to be in a state of physical and mental purity when fertilization takes place, and to ensure that each individual’s constitution is strong.
Panchakarma, translating to ?five actions?, is a rejuvenation therapy that is recommended for strengthening the physiology and ridding the body of waste which can do harm to many levels of well-being. During this time of cleansing, the person will take adequate amounts of rest physically as well as from mental activity, and will spend much time in meditation. They will eat a very basic and easy to digest diet of mainly kitchari, split mung bean and rice soup, with vegetables.
They will undergo a series of body therapies daily including massage, enemas, purgation therapy, shirodhara (a constant stream of warm sesame oil on the third eye), therapeutic vomiting, and other therapies, all varying with individual constitution and imbalance. This treatment will last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, and is recommended to be done each year, but especially before trying to conceive.
