It’s a supplement! It’s a food! No, it’s Moringa, the super-herb

By |2017-09-05T13:50:32+01:00September 16th, 2014|Digestion, Food, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Mind, Weightloss|

I was recently asked to create the above diagram to promote Moringa for Maharishi AyurVeda Products and have to admit that I had never previously heard of this herb. I did a Google search and was amazed, not only by the huge number and range of benefits it is supposed to have – from increasing mental clarity, to normalising blood pressure, to weight management, to improving libido – but also [...]

A Taste of Honey

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00May 15th, 2014|Detox, Digestion, Food, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs|

How do you satisfy that craving for the sweet taste without resorting to something sugar-based? That desire for sweetness means there is something missing. Perhaps we need more of the Earth and Water elements that sweet foods can supply. Perhaps our blood-sugar is low and we need a boost of energy. Perhaps we feel emotionally low and we crave that external sweetness as a substitute for our lack of inner [...]

Agni – the power to digest the world

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00May 3rd, 2014|Detox, Digestion, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs|

If there is one thing that Ayurveda can teach that will transform your health, it is how to improve your digestion. Agni, or digestive fire, is the key force that allows your body to function. When Agni is low, you feel weak, lacking in energy and vitality and you are prone to disease. When it is high, your immune system bcomes strong and you feel energised and full of enthusiasm. [...]

Drink some Chai to open up your Shrotas

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00March 3rd, 2014|Detox, Digestion, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Recipes|

Our body is full of spaces according to Ayurveda. These spaces, called Shrotas, are the channels through which nourishment and energy are delivered to our cells and though which toxic waste is eliminated. During the winter the cold makes our Shrotas shrink and this can lead to poor absorption of nutrients and poor elimination of poisonous toxins. This is a good time to help keep your body channels as open [...]

How to make Lassi

By |2017-09-05T13:50:34+01:00December 7th, 2013|Digestion, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Recipes|

Ayurveda considers yoghurt (referred to as curds in Ayurvedic texts) to be one of the most nourishing and health-promoting of foods and this pro-biotic food is especially good for your digestive tract. Yoghurt is predominantly sweet and sour, and is heavy in nature. It therefore tends to increase Kapha Dosha (the element of the body that gives us strength and structure). Like many nourishing foods, eaten at the wrong time, or in [...]

How to make your own Chapatis

By |2017-09-05T13:50:34+01:00November 20th, 2013|Digestion, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Recipes|

For 3-4 chapatis In the West, bread has gone from being a nourishing food to being a problem for our health. Many people have digestive problems due to the strain of wheat that is universally used to make most modern breads. Digestive problems are caused by the quick acting yeast used in almost all bread making. Most bread you find in shops contains a host of unnatural ingredients. Even when [...]

You are not what you eat but what you digest – Ayurveda and assimilation

By |2017-09-05T13:50:34+01:00August 28th, 2013|Digestion|

There is an urban myth I have often heard that when you look around any health food store, you’ll find it’s full of sick-looking, pasty-faced people. Sometimes this ‘truism’ is reinforced with the observation that when you look around a building site, full of fit looking healthy men, their diet usually consists of an unhealthy mixture of take-aways, strong sweet tea and biscuits. Probably the moral we are meant to [...]

Intermittent fasting, the Ayurveda way

By |2017-09-05T13:50:36+01:00June 27th, 2013|Detox, Digestion, Fasting, Weightloss|

There is of lot of talk about intermittent fasting these days. Benefits are said to range from weight loss, to enhanced heart and brain functioning, to increased longevity. Eat, Fast and Live Longer Last year I watched a BBC TV Horizon programme called “Eat, Fast and Live Longer”. The presenter, Michael Mosley, tried out different fasting diets and looked into the science behind them. The research on regular fasting shows [...]
