What is 🤔 Kapha Churna?
Kapha Churna is a powdered mixture of spices used to balance Kapha dosha, slow digestion, metabolism and sluggishness.
Some of the qualities of Kapha dosha, made up of earth 🌍 and water 💦elements, include cold, moist, heavy, dense, dull, oily, and stable.
The tastes that balance Kapha are pungent, bitter and astringent. The Kapha Churna has been formulated to help bring balance back to Kapha.
Stay Healthy this Spring!
Spring is the time to incorporate light and cleansing foods into your diet. As the Kapha season, the moist and heavy qualities should be balanced by eliminated accumulated toxins and bringing more heat into our foods.
* Exercise! This will encourage circulation, increasing the heat in the body and create a feeling of ‘lightness’ to balance the heavy qualities of kapha.
* Dry rub massage to invigorate the lymphatic system and decrease fluid retention.
Teeth are considered an upadhatu of Ashti Dhatu, bone tissue.
Normal teeth are strong, white, smooth and without decay. Gums should be even, pink and smooth.
According to Sushruta, the author of Sushruta Samhita, fifteen diseases of the roots of teeth and gums are mentioned. Good oral hygiene is very important as part of our daily routine to prevent tooth and gum disease. Daily tongue scraping, oil pulling, cleansing and flossing are all recommended.
