Winter Support

December 11th, 2013

 

Winter is here!

With the amount of snow fall and need for extra layers, the drop in temperature makes snuggling up with a good book and hot cup of tea an ideal evening activity. Unfortunately, sometimes we are snuggling up next to the fire because we are also sniffling and sneezing.

As our bodies fight harder to strengthen our immune system, we become more prone to colds. Fortunately, our Guduchi Rasayana provides support for our immune system by stimulating our digestion and metabolism. Guduchi, a highly valued herb in Ayurveda, is an adoptogen; it increases the body’s resistance to illness and stress.

Adding a spoonful of #25 Immune Support to warm water or milk makes for a tasty treat that will also strengthen your immune system during the cold seasons. Check out our Guduchi Rasayana to add comfort and support to your body so you can enjoy the fire, sneeze and cough free.

The Beauty of Cardamom

June 26th, 2013

 

Cardamom, yum! This well-known spice is used in over 20 of our products. So how is it so good? Well, the spicy-sweet taste can be used in a variety of recipes and although the price for cardamom is higher then other spices, a little bit can go a long way. Advised to purchase them in pods and grind yourself, as they are stronger and fresher that way, cardamom is an ideal touch to coffee, lentils, peas, and chicken. 

Aside from the array of medicinal uses, including increasing the movement of food through the intestine, cardamom adds a warming quality to soups or stews. Check out our ingredient list to read up on more of the medicinal values of cardamom, as the taste isn’t the only groovy thing about this herb!

Below is a delicious recipe for split-pea soup. Enjoy!

Serves 4 to 6

Cardamom adds its clean, pungent ­flavor to this unusual split-pea soup.

• 2 cups dried green or yellow split peas
• 2 teaspoons olive oil
• 1 1/2 cups chopped onions
• 1 ham bone with some meat attached
• 10 cups water
• 1 teaspoon sugar
• 1/2 to 2 teaspoons freshly ground cardamom
• Salt to taste

1. Place the peas in a sieve, remove any stones or other debris, and rinse with water. Warm the oil in a 4-quart or larger pot over moderate heat. Add the onions and sauté until transparent. Add the peas, bone, water, sugar, and the smaller amount of cardamom. Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat.

2. Simmer over very low heat for about 2 hours. Stir ­occasionally so that the peas don’t stick to the ­bottom of the pan. Add more water as needed.

3. When the peas have disintegrated, remove the bone and adjust the seasoning with a little salt and/or more ­cardamom. Serve immediately.

Need to concentrate?

May 1st, 2013

Concentration…….

How is it that focusing has become a lost art in our society?

Seems that all the stimulation we receive from mass media, our physical health, and obligations has diminished our ability to focus. As our minds wonder it becomes harder to concentrate.

Two of our regular customers are contentiously raving about our Concentration # 20-  Shankapushpi Rasayana. The husband came into the store today and we got into a discussion about the latest book he just finished, because until recently he hasn’t been able to sit and read a book for years.

He said, “Taking the Concentration  in the morning has been helping me transition between sleeping and  awaking up. It has not only increased my focus, but has given me a sense of inner peace with an enhanced clarity.

While being constantly over stimulated with all the world has to offer it can become overwhelming to even read a book.

The main ingredient in our Concentration #20 is called  Shankapushpi ( Convolvulus Pluricalis) , it has not only been known to help support memory weakness and muscle toning,  it has also been recognized to help relieve stress.

If you find yourself unable to focus on a certain task such as reading, writing, or planning your day, please try our product Concentration # 20-  Shankapushpi Rasayana and see if it can help you.

What are your Fears?

August 31st, 2012

What are your fears? Would you even be able to recognize one of your deepest little ones? How many fears do you have? Do they out way your dreams, and how long would it take for you to do something about that?

 

Fear can be anything from paranoia, arcalaphobia, love and ourselves. Sometimes it’s easier to recognize our fears due to the reactions we exert. But what do you do when the reaction is analyzed so deeply that it becomes lost in translation and all you are left with is “Fuck it”

 

Know you’re at a point where you have given up, or preoccupying yourself with useless means of entertainment to avoid the issues at hand.

 

Well know get to work. Life isn’t going to fix your fears for you. The only one that has control over this is “you”.

 

When you recognize “Fear” in it’s other forms it starts to get more confusing. Hatred, jealousy, manipulation, and control, are all fear based emotional reactions.

 

What happens when we rule our lives by these reactions?

 

We create our own destiny.

 

What kind energy do you want to put out into the world? How do you want to feel everyday? Do you want to live your life in fear or Love?

 

I hope, I pray and I wish to openly give and receive love, because it’s the positive thing to do.

 

So, Give yourself the love and attention you deserve. Let go off all your “FEAR”. Live with good intentions and listen to your heart.

 

 

Lava Love You

Allergy Season

July 3rd, 2012

Allergy season is here and there are many things you can do to help relieve symptoms. Starting off with a kapha (water and Earth) reducing diet. This includes cutting out as many wheat products, dairy products and cold drinks as possible, and supplementing it with corn, millet, rye or oat flour.

 

To reduce the congestion you can add warm spicy herbs to burn up the phlegm and promote digestion, like Black pepper, long pepper, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and chili.

 

We here at Ayurveda Rasayanas recommend a few products to help with this.

 

Our #29 Intestinal Cleanse. is a must for cleansing the colon of any left over winter storage waste.

 

Our #11 Congestion Clear- Pippali rasayana is great when made into a hot cup of tea. It’s almost like chai. It will help clear the sinuses, promote digestion and promote overall health.

 

Also our #6 Blood Pure- Majishta rasayana is really great for cleansing the blood and building a stronger immune symptoms.
