Detox Your Body With These Top Five Ayurveda Spices By Bineet Bose

If you are health conscious, chances are you've heard of the term "detox" or "detoxing" - that term that usually gives you an impression of getting rid of all the toxins that you have allowed to get inside your own body. These varieties of dietary recipes are supposed to clean us out and give our bodies a kind of a reboot or a restart.

Sounds healthy right? If that is the case then Ayurveda is one of those approaches that you need to consider.

Ayurveda uses many spices to alter longstanding conditions and maintain health. Spices cleanse the blood, detoxify the system, reduce mucus and fat, and much more. Using common spices in your cooking and teas is a great way to begin dietary changes for health.

Here are some spices that can help you detoxify your body:

1. Turmeric: Turmeric is an antioxidant, Antitumoral, anti-cancerous, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antihepatotoxic. Turmeric is contraindicated during pregnancy and with gallbladder issues.

2: Ginger Ginger is best known for digestion. It breaks down proteins relieving gas from the system. It improves circulation, relaxes muscles surrounding blood vessels and increases the flow of blood throughout the body. Studies have shown that it helps reduce the levels of bad cholesterol. Dry ginger and fresh ginger have different uses for specific dosha.

3: Cumin Cumin is an estrogenic, anti spasmodic, diuretic, carminative, stimulate and analgesic.

4: Coriander: Coriander is very good for Pitta. Especially for the digestive and urinary systems. Ayurveda uses it for gastric complaints, chest pain, upper abdominal pain, bladder infections and as an external poultice for headaches.

5 Fennel: Fennel is considered one of the most balancing and static of all spices. It is a wonderful herb for digestion, without disturbing Pitta. One tsp. can be taken at mealtime roasted with rock salt. It is calming to the nervous system and promotes mental clarity. It may help promote menstruation and milk flow for nursing mothers. Cumin, coriander, and fennel seed tea can be taken daily for balancing the three doshas.

Using these spices in your everyday cooking is using food as medicine.

"Ayurveda relates to all things - affecting us on all different levels. Bringing balance as we create space in our lives to discover who it is we are �and what it is we need."
