Ayurvedic Medicine - Part IV
- Tuesday, 08 March 2011
In India, as I’ve said, I had this wonderful opportunity to meet an Ayurvedic physician. The other product she suggested for my low performing thyroid was Varanadi Kathayam. Varanadi kashayam is indicated in many health conditions like obesity – and I am overweight. This Ayurvedic treatment, cures indigestion, cures headaches, stomach gas bloating, headache, abscess and wounds. It is also used as natural herbal diuretic and natural edema cures. For info, here are the ingredients, but it is a very complex combination: Varana (Crataeva religiosa), Sairyaka (Strobilanthes ciliatus), Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus), Dahana (Plumbago zeylanica), Morata (Chenomorpha fragrans), Bilwa (Aegle marmelos), Vishanika (Aristolochia bracteolate), Brihati (Solanum melongena), Bhadra (Aerua lanata),Karanja (Pongamia glabra), Pootikaranja (Holoptelia integrifolia), Jaya (Premna corymbosa), Pathya (Terminalia chebula), Bahalapallava (Moringa olifera / drum stick), Darbha (Desmostachya bipinnata) and Rujakara (Semicarpus anacardium).
The directions are to take one tablespoon of the medicine and four tablespoons of warm water twice daily before food.
I feel that I was drawn to this traditional physician and am eager to begin treatment. I’ll be ordering these today. There is much we can learn from traditional medicine ways from all around the world.
