While talking about human health and Ayurvedic five elemental perspective its very important for real estate industry to understand this delicate relationship.
Earlier days building a home was very individualistic task. Best structures were where there was courtyard in between devoid of any beams or pillars. They were used as relaxing, meeting points, evening gossips or any social gatherings and events. Now a days more and more people are opting for community living. Where multistory houses are used. Though this is a good practice to save grounds for other things. But all sort of good and bad energies remain clustered in these types of houses. Directly or indirectly it influences the health of the occupants.
According to body type one can keep some options for end users. The more airy and sky type of body which represents creative and restless energies should opt for lower floors. Vata people with anxieties and abundant air will feel stress on higher floors.
People recovering from illnesses need to be more in open spaces where energy movement is good. Stale and blocked places arrest recovery. Most of the psychological problems have tendencies to turn into physical illnesses.
Basements are very good for meditations and relaxation as earth soaks most of the negativity around and gives a serene space for purpose.
While preparing for community living it is very important to take care of open spaces and natural flow of five elements. Crowdy places increase stress and energy is blocked at these places. More open space with abundant earth, water, air, fire and sky elements are good. While buying houses one can check his body type and select house accordingly. Sensitive people can feel these small changes very fast so need to take extra care.
Ayurveda can further benefit real estate developers who design hospitals, health villages and maternity wards. According to ancient healing science hospital building should be away from crime areas, at peaceful place, easily approachable and all herbs in vicinity. North side of the city or habitation is best place for health institutes. Main entry should be northeast facing. Strong direct wind is a strict no. Patient recovery room should have three tiers lobby or any other workable area around it. And there should be enough balconies in this or porch area. Land should be clean and away from pollution, there should not be any excitement factors around, or irritating people and idiots. There should be more trees with ksheer or which excrete milky secretions when pinched. There should not be any burial grounds near by.
Maternity room should have medicinal wooden floor and walls. It should have medicinal wood plank. Door should be at the east or south direction. Room size should not be too big or too small. There should not be any direct air in to the room.
Detox and anti aging therapy rooms should also be in crime free city with healthy environment and polite people. It should be towards north east of city with good transportation facility. Breadth, length, height of recovery room should be adequate. There should be at least three walled lobby around the patients room. There should be enough jharokha for ventilation but direct wind should not touch the patient. All weatherproof interiors are best for recovery.
Directions of wind are stated to be very important for people who are recovering from serious and life threatening disorders. South North wind is good for health while East West wind is considered unhealthy. It is particularly bad for postoperative patients, chronic illnesses and heart patients.
South wind is good for tired and exhaustion, good for eyes and healing of wounds. West wind good for heart and blood related problems. Its good for joint and arthritis patients. It has drying effects so good for weight loss and slow metabolism. But can make one tired soon because of drying effects.
North wind is best for healing, it is nourishing and good to gain health.
Type of underground water and rivers around us also influence health. Underground water has qualities according to the type of land.
Fresh rain water gives life, health, intelligence, it's easy to digest, cool nature, like elixir of life. But once it touches ground, it's nature changes according to surrounding. If in healthy conditions remains healthy if pollution is there it becomes unhealthy.
Rainy water during monsoon is not considered healthy as this is the water which comes mostly through sea and strong airs.
Water from fast flowing rivers and rivers, which are western sea bound, are considered healthy. The rivers, which slow down cause many problems, like heart diseases, goiter, elephantiasis, filliriasis or worms. Rivers of North East and Konkani area can cause piles.
According to Charak rivers coming from Malay mountains or Himalya are healthy.
If the river is ending towards West side of Sea its water is more pure and drinkable. Rivers going towards east side of sea become very slow so their water becomes difficult to digest and can cause congestion and heaviness in the body. Vindhay and Sahay mountains rivers have water which can cause headaches and filiriasis/ elephantiasis. During Monsoon River waters are not drinkable they can cause many problems in the body. By understanding the delicate relationship with nature and life we can make small changes and can ward off many serious illnesses and genetically mutations for the future generations.
