Spring allergies

Ayurveda Wellness Healing post on allergies last week focused on the Kapha reducing diet to control allergies – today let’s focus on what we can add to our diets to help with the spring allergies that came out in full force this weekend in the Northeast…

1. Baked, Broiled or grilled foods, and hot spices. These foods increase warmth, light, and dry qualities

2. Fruits like cherries, berries, and pomegranate.

Here are couple of herbal tea recipes to help jump-start your spring:

Ginger tea
1 glass warm water
1 T honey
1⁄2 T fresh lime or lemon
1/8 t fresh grated ginger.
Mix well and enjoy this great morning beverage.

Cinnamon Ginger tea
1 glass water
1 stick of cinnamon
3-4 cloves
1⁄4 T fresh grated ginger
1 T honey
Boil all ingredients for 2-3 minutes; then add 1T honey and enjoy.

Kitchari

Kitchari

So, what’s kitchari and what does it have to do with Ayurveda and, more importantly, you?

Kitchari is a traditional Ayurvedic dish that’s known to assist in detoxing the body and balancing all three doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Kitchari provides awesome nutrients while cleansing the toxins out of the body. It’s a great way to cleanse the body and soul in a gentle way.

Kitchari is made with mung beans, Basmati rice, seasonal vegetables, ghee and spices. The mung beans are known for their ability to remove toxins, specifically pesticides and insecticides, from the body. Mung beans are also a great source of protein and provide a source of good carbohydrates and fiber. It’s also a great dish for those having digestive problems and recovering from illness. There’s many versions of Kitchari out there from simple to more elaborate.

One bag of Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC  kitchari makes 6 servings!

*Flat shipping rate of $5…whether you purchase 1 bag or 6!

Fresh Start Fall Cleanse

How toxins (Ama) affect our health…

AMA clogs the channels of circulation in the body, preventing the unrestricted flow of nutrients to the cells and organs. Or it can clog the channels that carry waste from the cells and tissues, resulting in a toxic buildup.

We need to adjust our eating and habits to suit our digestive type. Digestion also fluctuates according to the seasons, and if we don’t adjust our diet and lifestyle when the weather changes, we may form AMA.

Through the lens of Ayurveda – you are not what you eat, but what you digest.

If you are experiencing any of the below, you may have a build up of toxins:

If you experience a heavy feeling in your body, if your joints are stiff, if your tongue is coated when you wake up in the morning, if you have an unpleasant body odor, if you feel dull and sleepy after eating, or if your mind is foggy, you may have a buildup of AMA in the body. Diarrhea, constipation, joint pain, sadness, dullness, lowered immunity, frequent bouts of colds and flu are all health problems that can be caused by AMA.
