India has a very rich history, which is full of scientific ways of living life. Indians connect their day to day life with science and Ayurveda. There is so much diversity in our culture, tradition, food, living styles, etc. Every culture teaches us something. “Ayurveda” is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. Ayurveda has developed 3,000 years ago in India. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
Ayurveda is not only about taking pills when you are ill but it is connected with our day to day life. It is how you manage to live your life in a way, surround your self from things that keep you away from any disease.
In all the things I want to talk about why Indians used copper vessels to eat and drink? Why Water stored in copper vessels is beneficial for health?
BENEFITS OF COPPER VESSEL
According to Ayurveda, water stored in a copper vessel helps in balancing all the 3 doshas in your body, (vata, pitta, and kupha)and it does so by positively charging the water. Water is supposed to be consumed after storing the in a copper vessel for at least 8-9 hours. If Copper vessel pot is put on the wooden square it charges the water.
Copper is an essential micro-nutrient and plays the role of many things happening inside our body – the development of body organs, RBCs, absorption of iron, anti-oxidant defense.
Hot water stored in the night in a small copper pot and consumed in the morning helps in the functioning of the digestive system properly and keeps you away from constipation and gastrointestinal diseases.
Drinking this water can cure anemia too.
We know excess of everything is harmful. Cooking every kind of food in copper vessels is not recommended. Copper reacts with certain food because it is slightly acidic in nature and may lead to health-related issues and even cause poisoning of food. So Pickle, cooked tomato, cooked tamarind should not be stored in these vessels.
