Ayurvastra or ayurvedic clothing is yet another gift of Ayurveda to humanity. Loosely translated –Ayu means life and vastra means clothing. Ayurvastra is the garment that ensures better health and long life. Normal fabrics like organically grown cotton yarn, jute fiber etc. are used to make Ayurvastra and the fabrics are permeated with the desired herbs that enhance health in a controlled temperature and environment.
Ayurvastra cloth is completely free of synthetic chemicals and toxic irritants and is totally organic, sustainable and biodegradable.
Why Healing Clothing?
Many clinical experiments have been conducted to show the effectiveness of Ayurvastra. Conventional Western medicine and traditional Eastern medicine recognize the skin as being the body’s largest organ. The skin can act as a barrier but also as a medium for outside substances to enter the body. Many environmental toxins and chemicals in conventional clothing are assimilated into the body through the skin.
Ayurvastra cloth is used by Ayurveda health clinics in the treatment of a broad range of diseases such as diabetes, skin infections, eczema, psoriasis, hypertension and high blood pressure, asthma, arthritis, rheumatism, and even some forms of cancer. Ayurvastra clothing is believed to help restore balance within the body’s systems and strengthen the immune system.
