Ayurveda is a traditional medicine system that has been rooted back all the way from India more than 3000 years ago. The term ‘Ayurveda’ literally means the science of life as Ayur is life while Veda translates to science or knowledge. It is considered one of the world’s most sophisticated and effective mind-body health system. It involves the use of herbal ingredients and specialised diets that promote a vibrant and healthy lifestyle.
The main idea behind the Ayurveda philosophy is that the mind and body are intertwined, whereby when there is a balance, the power of the mind can heal and transform the body.
An Ayurvedic diet is a specialised eating plan with guidelines on what to what to eat, when to eat and how to eat, including the six tastes in the Ayurvedic theory: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent. The superfoods involved in this diet includes ginger, ashwagandha, amla, turmeric, ghee, tulsi, and Brahmi. All these herbs have polarized benefits that supplement and heals the body and mind. Some benefits include reducing muscle pain, relieving stress and anxiety, detoxifying and rejuvenating the skin, lowering blood sugar and cholesterol, building immunity and more.
EGA Juice Clinic has built its entire brand by practising the Ayurveda philosophy in recreating balance and strength in your mind, body and soul.
The Super Herbs of Ayurveda
Superherbs of Ayurveda often possess polarized benefits. For instance, Ashwagandha is famous for its ability to both calm and energize. Turmeric can both warm your digestion and cool excess heat. Triphala both detoxifies and rejuvenates.
It is likely the uncommon energetic patterns which these herbs possess that gives them the phenomenal ability to provide healing in an opposite, yet complementary direction.
