For people around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic brought about unprecedented levels of stress. It demonstrated the need for a major change in how we approach and look after our health. During such times, going back to our ancient roots can help.
According to experts, our ancient intelligence, that is Ayurveda, has the power to heal illnesses. We simply need to rediscover it and incorporate it into our modern life. Celebrity Dietician and Nutritionist Shweta Shah says,
Health issues that we refer to as “common health problems” aren’t supposed to be so common. We are not supposed to face issues such as acidity, bloating, insomnia, etc. One can easily overcome conditions like diabetics, constipation, PCOS, and hormonal imbalances by making some lifestyle changes. For instance, the age-old ways of drinking a kadha works in dealing with these issues. Kadhas are more than blessings by Ayurveda and work as elixirs for human life.
So, we asked Shweta to share some recipes for some healthy Ayurvedic decoctions. Read on to know her kadha (herbal tea) recipes that can help relieve common health concerns.
Take eight black raisins and one tablespoon of saunf (fennel seeds). Soak them in water for five to six hours. Next, drain the water and chew this mixture for one to two minutes.
Boil a glass of water and add 15 tulsi leaves, one freshly-ground pipli (long pepper), and one tablespoon of grated ginger. Switch off the gas, and then add half a cup of pomegranate juice. Strain it, and drink it while lukewarm.
Take 50 ml each of lemon juice, garlic juice, ginger juice, apple cider vinegar (only Braggs or Heinz). Boil all the ingredients in a vessel till the mixture is half the original quantity. Let it cool before drinking it up.
Add seven to eight leaves of bael patra, seven to eight leaves of basil leaves, seven to eight curry leaves, and ½ a cup of water into a grinder. Grind it into a smooth paste. Strain it and drink it fresh.
Boil a glass of water and add a 1/2 tablespoon each of coriander seeds, jeera and fennel seeds. Strain and add a few drops of lemon. Serve warm. It helps deal with bloating and gas.
Increased awareness about the way our body works and getting in touch with the ancient way of Ayurveda is a step we can take in order to ensure a life full of health and happiness.
