Ayurveda has many tips and recommendations that help one achieve optimal health. We show you 3 easy ways to start experiencing all that this ancient modality has to offer now.
1) Move that Lymph! Ayurvedic dry-brushing, called garshana (pronounced gar-shun-uh), promotes lymphatic cleansing and is a powerful way to support the removal of ama (cellular waste products) from the body. Garshana is traditionally done using raw silk or linen gloves, though many prefer to use a natural bristle body brush. This technique is recommended for people who have signs of ama, which may include fatigue, sluggishness, feeling physical or mental dullness, constipation, and a taxed immune system.
2) Feel the powerful effects of Ayurvedic herbs! Ancient adaptogens and herbs listed throughout Ayurveda strengthen the body in many ways. A variety of herbs are prized for their powerful effects but we incorporate the most beneficial ones in our product line.
Ashwagandha: This powerful adaptogen is prized for its ability to lower cortisol, a stress hormone that can be harmful when overproduced by modern lifestyles. Find it in Tranquil Daily Stress Management Capsules.
Turmeric: (blog post here) This anti-inflammatory antioxidant is known for its immune system and anti-aging benefits. Find it in Relief Capsules for pain/recovery & Defense for an Immune System Boost.
