Health is paramount to achieve our goals in life. It is possible to handle and tackle every task when the person has good health.
The science of Ayurveda exists from thousands of years and is based on the principle of ‘Swastasya swastya rakshanam aturasya vikara prashamanam’ which means maintaining the health of a healthy and to cure the disease of a sick.
Understanding the wholesome and unwholesome requirements of the body is very essential for health living.
Right or wrong diet therefore is vital and Ayurveda principles of rasa (taste), guna (quality), veerya (potency), vipaka (final transformation) and prabhava (specific potency) of a dravya (herb or food item) provide different understanding to this aspect. To bring in better awareness to the use of herbs in day to day life, inculcating their use in a simplest form becomes essential.
Herbs like Ardraka (Fresh Ginger), Twak (Cinnamon), Dhanyaka (Coriander seeds), Shatapushpa (Dill seeds) have wide range of disease prevention and curative activities.
