What did you have for breakfast today? Have you tried steel cut oats.

Porridge is always a great breakfast especially during the autumn and winter season.
These oats are closest to their original grain form. They are made when the whole groat (whole unbroken grain) is cut into several pieces with a steel blade (it looks similar to rice that’s been cut into pieces).

In Ayurveda, one of the primary investigative tools of practitioners for determining the state of ones health is tongue diagnosis.

Ayurveda suggests that the surface of the tongue reflects an entire map of the bodies overall health.

Each dosha has different colour signs. Vata will be more a brownish colour, with coating more pronounced at the back, Pitta will have more of a yellow coating and kapha a whitish tongue, often with a layer of mucus.

How do you want your tongue to look? A pink colour across the entire tongue, no cracks on the tongue, thin coating of white mucus and no teeth marks.

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

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.”
