How lucky we are to have a lovely neighbour who has a fig tree in his garden.

Figs are called Anjeer in Hindi. Anjeer has such wonderful medicinal benefits  with such a high nutritional value.

Figs are a wonderful source of iron, rich in calcium (more than milk), potassium (more than bananas) and rich in dietary fibres.

The dried fruits are abundant in manganese, iron, magnesium, potassium, and thiamine. These fruits contain 17 different types of amino acids

 

The ayurvedic properties are sweet (madhura)/ astringent (kashaya) and cold (sheeta) in nature

Figs are great to relive constipation, piles, liver disorder, gum disease, high blood pressure and debility.

1.       Anjeer richness is iron makes it a perfect fruit to treat Anaemia.

2.       Taken in the morning with Pippali is helpful for Asthma,

3.       Chewing figs strengthens teeth, tongue and gums

4.       Anjeer alkalises the body blood and maintains proper ph of blood.

5.       The richness in calcium makes them ideal for heart, bones, digestive and reproductive health.

6.       For cold or sore throat boil dried figs, fenugreek and tulsi leaves. Reduce the water to ¼ and drink it lukewarm

7.       Figs are high in antioxidants and studies suggest the anti cancer properties.

So interesting about the fig tree has been mentioned and considered sacred in different religions and cultures around the world.

In Hindu philosophy the tree is sacred to different deities , the roots of one indian species represents Brahma the Creator, the leaves Shiva and the trunk Vishnu the preserver.

Adam and Eve used fig leaves to cover their nakedness. “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” (Genesis 3:7).

In ancient Egypt, pharaohs believed that when they died their souls would encounter a Fig tree at the edge of the desert, and that the goddess Hathor would emerge from the foliage to welcome them to heaven

Who would think of all this when eating a Fig!

Food is Medicine

Food is Conciousness

Figs are in season at the moment so this is the best time to eat this wholesome fruit. Also available at Lakshmi Ayurveda after your treatment 🙂

We look forward to welcoming you at Lakshmi Ayurveda

Kelsey was diagnosed with endometriosis and had been experiencing all the symptoms related to the condition. We tailored a Panchakarma program for her, she was committed and willing to do the necessary lifestyle and diet changes. After her program, all of her symptoms have dramatically reduced and she feels a new person.

Here is Kelsey’s testimonial:

“The Panchakarma treatments with Karin have changed my life. Prior to starting Panchakarma, I experienced significant digestion issues, menstrual pain, trouble sleeping, anaemia, fatigue and emotional blockages. My gynaecologist recommended I undergo laparoscopic surgery and immediately start hormonal treatments to cure my assumed endometriosis. I opted out of the surgery and hormones and decided I wanted to take an Ayurvedic approach to regaining my health through Panchakarma treatments with Karin. The decision was one of the best of my life.

Karin and her therapists were extremely supportive during the treatments. I loved being at the clinic and seeing them daily. Their emotional support was genuine and unmatched by any medical professional I have ever met. The symptoms I faced prior to Panchakarma have miraculously reduced. My friends tell me I look brighter (and I can actually see it in myself). My quality of life on a mental, spiritual and physical level have improved dramatically. Karin is inspiring, genuine, caring, and extremely knowledgeable in her understanding of Ayurveda. Lakshmi Ayurveda has been an absolute blessing to my life. I recommend visiting the clinic to everyone.

With all my Light and Love I thank you,

Kelsey”

 

We just said goodbye to a lovely in-patient. It’s amazing that we can have our patients staying at Lakshmi Ayurveda for their program. Even though it’s a bit sad when they go back home, it’s amazing when we hear back how amazing they feel and how their lives have positively changed after their Panchakarma program at Lakshmi Ayurveda.

Here’s Florence’s testimonial:

“I just had the most caring panchakarma of my life at Lakshmi. Karin was outstanding in the way she would explain all the outcomes possible to every small step of the treatment, making me secure and more interested through the process. My friends have been telling me how glowing I am, and they have no idea how good it feels inside. I feel centred, having the body and mind functioning in their best in years! I left Lakshimi promising myself to do it regularly. So I’ll be back for this encounter to my highest I. Love&Light to all therapist there. Florence”

Isn’t it amazing that you can experience an authentic Panchakarma treatment in Australia? Many people think that they would need to travel overseas to be able to have this wonderful cleanse process. At Lakshmi Ayurveda we offer authentic classic Panchakarma treatment, where you can also stay as an in-patient and enjoy our beautiful clinic facilities. We just had a lovely patient staying with us; she left us with this beautiful card that made all of us feel so loved, inspired and grateful….

Thank you so much for this beautiful, healing experience!

“Dearest Karin,

Thank you so much for this beautiful, healing experience! I am so grateful for everything over the past two weeks. You are an amazing healer, practitioner and teacher!

Real healing only happens when one can be open, feel vulnerable and surrender in the presence of the practitioner, and you definitely create that space – so thank you!

This has been such an incredible learning experience for me, about myself, about health physically, mentally and spiritually, and about Ayurveda! And thank you for the opportunity to stay here too, it made it that much more special for me! Stepping away from daily habits and into this sanctuary you have created here! I’m feeling so inspired now for life, my mind is so much more clear, my tummy doesn’t feel as heavy and I have consistent energy throughout the day. So thank you, and also a special thank to Aki, Talu and Irena for their support during the Panchakarma too! My mind is now filled with all the knowledge you have passed on to me, I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon Ayurveda and all the beauty it has to offer!

Much love, A.”

Every Panchakarma treatment that we do is an inspiration to us. When we get feedbacks like this one is so rewarding! We definitely love what we do – helping people in such a deep level is a life changing experience for us as well.

Testimonial for Panchakarma

As man in late middle age and suffering from the stresses of 21st century living, being overweight, foggy brained, listless and tired with the attendant problems of high blood pressure, high sugar and cholesterol levels, I knew I was in need of a remedy.

As seems to be the case when a need becomes pressing I was offered a possible solution for the alleviation of my ailments. I went for a walk with a friend who told me of this program and that he was seriously considering following it. This intrigued me and after a struggle with my ego who was trying to talk me out of it I made the commitment to undertake the program.

Although I was aware of ayurvedic medicine I had no idea of what its premise was or what it entailed, so I had no preconceived notions or expectations.

The process itself began with a consultation with Karin who was very caring and obviously fully committed to her work. I realised that far from being a simple detoxification program it was specifically tailored to my needs and offered the promise of relief from some chronic issues that were curtailing my life quality.

The first three days were difficult but not as difficult as I imagined and I realised that much of the discomfort was due to the sacrifice of my cherished habits which whilst enjoyable were not exactly healthy, especially the quantities in which they were indulged.

After that the process became more and more enjoyable under the nurturing hands of Karin, Talu and Aki. I especially enjoyed the hot turmeric oil massages and Shirodhara (the pouring of warm oil upon the forehead).

I felt a bit uncomfortable about the enema’s but my concern was unwarranted as the process was painless and not embarrassing.

I have just recently finished the program but can feel that my body is still at work and so I expect that the benefits of the process will continue.

As to the benefits: My blood pressure is significantly lower as are my cholesterol and sugar levels. My skin is clear, my eyes bright and for the first time in years I am not having to get up at night time to go to the bathroom. My lower back pain has disappeared and I am hopeful that my arthritic knee will also improve overtime.

In addition, my mind is clear my mood has improved, I am waking up fresh and I have lost the desire for sweet things.

As a bonus I lost 5kg in two weeks and it is very gratifying to look down and be able to see my feet.

Finally the Panchakarma program supports any psychological or spiritual process one is undertaking as it helps integrate mind and body which is vital for well being and so often overlooked in the fragmentary chaos of wester civilisation.

So if you are looking to improve your health and promote lifestyle change I heartily recommend taking the Panchakarma Program.

Thanks for taking the time to read this missive.
