Addiction is a disease that penetrates your body, breath, and mind. Whether it is a sugar, drug, alcohol, internet, or a relationship addiction, it creates a disconnect between the intelligence and consciousness sheaths (two of the five layers of self). It results in seeing reality fragmented, an inability to discern what is an illusion and what is reality, flooding the mind with irrational and obsessive thoughts. It prevents you from living in the present moment, enjoying life and reaching your full potential as a human extension of the universal source energy.

It can either lead to anxiety and fear if you are Vata dosha; anger if your constitution is more of Pitta nature; or depression, over attachment, and lethargy if you Kapha aggravated.  The drug is then seen as a way to go back to  “normalcy” which is short lived. Learning to reconnect to the present moment is key in finding a way out of any addiction. Ayurveda also can help with a proper lifestyle, properly prescribed for your Dosha, and an environment that decreases cravings.

These are some steps you can follow if you feel you are suffering from any type of addiction:

  • First, identify your dosha or constitution. I have a free test here you can take in a few minutes. This will help determine what foods and lifestyle regimen are best for you. This is a crucial step since it will help differentiate the healing modality that best works for your constitution.
  • Rebuild the body by restoring Ojas. In Ayurveda, Ojas is a substance produced by our body that promotes strength, radiance, and luster. In an addiction, Ojas is depleted by the harmful behavior and the toxicity of the substance. You can replenish it by eating foods like rice, honey, almonds, amaranth, ghee, and mangoes.
  • Restore the natural intelligence of your mind and body by doing some purification or detoxification techniques like Panchakarma which is the combination of 5 actions that help eliminate toxins and clear toxic conditions and restore your constitutional balance. The five actions are: emesis (vamana), purgation (virechana), enemas (basti), elimination of toxins through the nose (nasya) and detoxification of the blood (rakta moksha)
