Ayurveda, the ancient practice of medicine originating in India over 5000 years ago, lays out very specific guidelines according to the individual – their ‘dosha’ (constitution), age, the season, and other factors. However there are a number of foods that are recommended more generally to support optimal health.
Here are a few of the key items that I have daily:
Turmeric & other antioxidants — every morning I take about 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric with black pepper and honey (honey can be substituted with milk). Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, antibiotic, immune system booster. Personally, I source turmeric grown in Yakushima due to the incredibly clean air & water along with energy-rich soil. You can buy it on Amazon!
Almonds — a great source of Vitamin E, calcium, iron and other micro-nutrients. Soak 10-12 almonds overnight, remove peel, and eat (the skin of almonds contain tannin which inhibit nutrient absorption). *Kapha dosha should eat in moderation
Warm lemon and ginger water — just boil fresh a few slices of fresh ginger and fresh lemon (or other citrus peel) & drink. This simple concoction will keep you warm and hydrated throughout the day. Ginger is heating so you may need to reduce or remove if you are pitta dosha, hot, or if the weather is warm. Note that teas and coffees are stimulants which may cause an already anxious mind to become more jittery.
These are just a few simple but powerful examples of how what you eat and drink can be more than just pleasure. They can and should be your natural medicine!
