Embrace Ayurvedic Wisdom for Holistic Men's Health

In the realm of Ayurveda, it's believed that each person has a unique constitution defined by three doshas: Kapha, Pitta, and Vata. These doshas shape our physical, mental, and emotional characteristics. Throughout a man’s life, these energies shift: Kapha predominates in youth, Pitta during middle age, and Vata in older age. A man can enhance his well-being by tailoring his lifestyle to his dosha's needs. 

In honor of Father’s Day, we’ve put together top tips–backed by Ayurvedic wisdom–for men who want to improve their overall health.


Personal hygiene is integral to Ayurvedic practice and contributes to well-being. Wash your hands immediately after waking up, and cup your hands to splash your face with cool water.  

Take your time, and stay in the moment as you care for your body. Hydrating your skin can be an enjoyable way to relax and rejuvenate. Use Mentha Body Moisturizer to massage the skin in circular motions, taking time to enjoy the invigorating scent.


Adhering to Ayurvedic nutritional guidelines can significantly benefit men. Look for whole foods such as legumes, fruits, and vegetables. Avoid overly processed items which have been shown to be detrimental to men’s health. Aim for warm meals with longer intervals between them to keep your digestive fire, or Agni, strong. Your diet should align with your dosha and support your digestive system.

To support your Agni, avoid excessively hot, salty, or sour foods that can overstimulate Pitta, leading to irritability. Instead, calm Pitta with cooling foods like coconut oil, and seeds. To enhance digestion, try Triphala. Triphala not only aids in digestion, but also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Body & Mind

Balancing physical and mental health is important. Incorporate physical activity into your routine without overexertion, which can cause injury. Yoga is an excellent option for men to relieve stress and enhance flexibility. 

Meditation is also beneficial. It has been shown to improve sleep, help with anxiety, boost the immune system, and support an overall good temper. Supplements such as Ashwagandha can also help alleviate stress and increase energy. In addition to that, it can aid in athletic performance, enhance muscle strength, and improve overall metal health.

By integrating these relaxation techniques and dietary adjustments into your daily routine, you can proactively combat stress and negative emotions. The Ayurvedic lifestyle isn't just a remedy for specific ailments; it's a holistic approach to achieving inner balance and health on multiple levels, for everyone.
