If you’re an adherent of Ayurveda, India’s traditional medicine, you’ll know that an internal cleansing is advised every time the seasons change. Why the schedule? In the same way nature rejuvenates itself each summer, winter, spring and fall, so to should the body re-acclimatize itself to the cycles of the earth.
Understandably, a large part of undertaking an Ayurvedic cleanse is related to diet, which is where Ayurvedic Purify Wellness comes in. According to the Council of Maharishi Ayurveda Physicians, the whole idea of a purifying cleanse is to restore balance within the body, so toxins can flow out of the body.
Ginger, one of the blend components helps achieve this state. Considered by many to be a veritable Ayurvedic medicine chest, ginger aids digestion and helps nutrients reach body tissues by clearing what are known as micro-circulatory channels. In fact, an ayurvedic sutra states that everyone should consume ginger just before lunch and dinner for this exact reason.
Roses, another component of the blend are believed to balance Sadhaka Pitta, or affairs of the heart. Again, tied to the seasons, the heart is thought to fall out of balance in the summer, when hot weather can wreak havoc on the mind, digestion and body metabolism. Ingesting roses is thought to offer some relief.
What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India. Ancient treatises describe how medical knowledge was first passed from the gods to humans, then refined over thousands of years on earth. In general, the idea with Ayurveda is to achieve balance between mind, body and spirit…not always an easy task in today’s busy world. Drink tea and be at peace.
