Did you know that Ayurveda is the traditional practice of medicine in India? It is widely considered as the oldest study of medicine in the world, and to this day gains popularity for its traditional approach. There are a range of Ayurvedic techniques including yoga, massage, acupuncture and the use of herbal medicine to promote health and wellbeing, rather than the use of “medicines”.
For example, Triphala and Turmeric are considered to be “ayurvedic herbs”, meaning they assist with overall health through the Ayurveda practice. These herbs “cleanse” the body, and in turn, boost defence against disease, while keeping mind, body, and spirit balanced.
There are around 600 known herbal formulas and around 250 plant remedies in the family of Ayurvedic treatments. Let’s take a look at how some of our teas fit into the Ayurvedic Herbs family, and why you should consider incorporating them into your daily life:
Triphala is believed to delay, or even prevent many aging-related diseases. It is also commonly known that Triphala can restore digestive health within people who are considered obese, who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or even diabetes.
Turmeric is known to purify the blood, and through channels of the body. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, and has been known to treat acne-prone skin. It brings circulation and nutrition to the skin. It is recommended that approximately one teaspoon per day is consumed, which is almost perfect if drinking our Turmeric & Ginger tea!
