For individuals leading hectic and stressful lifestyles, there often comes a time when it’s necessary to take care of one’s mental and physical well-being. That’s what happened to Mr. Puneet Nanda, certified Expert in Ayurvedic Medicine, yogi, and Founder of GuruNanda. GuruNanda is a company devoted to helping people lead productive and stress-free lives through aromatherapy and Ayurvedic principles.
Before founding GuruNanda, Mr. Nanda was founder and CEO of oral care company Dr. Fresh. Mr. Nanda reflects that his 16-hour work days lead to physical and mental overexertion and eventually landed him in the emergency room.
When he recovered, he decided to renew himself and went back to his roots in Ayurvedic practices. Each day that followed began with yoga, meditation, and aromatherapy in order to reduce his stress.
“Ayurvedic medicine is a preventative medical practice. Our goal is to enable others to live long and healthy lives,” he says.
Ayurvedic medicine focuses on five basic principles: air, water, fire, space, and earth. People are assigned one of three categories or dosha—Vata, Pitta, or Kapha—based their relation to the five principles.
For example, people who are assigned to Vata align with the elements of space and air and tend to suffer from sleep irregularities. Mr. Nanda’s practice encourages Vatas to try Frankincense oil to help quiet the mind and sleep better.
There’s a quiz on GuruNanda’s website that can determine one’s Ayurvedic Constitution and suggest ways to maintain a balanced mind, body, and spirit.
“The results of the quiz also offer recommendations for yoga and meditation practices, alongside our aromatherapy products. When combined, our recommendations lead to reduced stress and a healthier life,” he mentions.
One of the key health benefits of Mr. Nanda’s aromatherapy line is that every essential oil is “distilled from plant or flower. Nothing added, nothing removed.”
“People are tired of chemicals—that is why my goal is to bring everything from the farm to the person,” he mentions.
Mr. Nanda’s vision is to provide easily accessible and affordable products. Having a healthy mind and body is an advantage anyone would like to have, GuruNanda is here to give people that edge. These essential oils are available and affordable to all people and can be purchased online or at your local Walmart store.
“In yoga, it’s not about how good you are in comparison to another person. It’s how good you are to yourself than what you were three days ago. It’s about improving yourself every day.”
He highly encourages individuals who suffer from anxiety, stress, hypertension, or any health disparities to log onto www.gurunanda.com for more in-depth information on how these products can help lead a healthier lifestyle.
