Ayurveda – the science of life

Ayurveda has it’s origins in India. The three qualities of Vata, Pitta and Kapha (known as doshas), are all around and within us: in our minds and bodies, in nature, in the seasons and in the foods we eat.

Vata corresponds to space and air and is found within all forms of Movement.

Pitta corresponds to fire and water and is found within all forms of Transformation.

Kapha corresponds to water and earth and is found within all forms of Structure.

We all have an innate natural balance of these three qualities. Most of us are a combination of two of these types, e.g. Vata/Pitta; which means a person is mostly Vata with Pitta as secondary.

Cleansing foods and supplements by Viridian; artichoke, milk thistle, dandelion…

Onions and garlic, like all the alliums, are incredibly rich in organic sulphur. This essential mineral is vital for skin health. It is adetox kits, detox 7 day keyconstituent in the protein matrix that supports the skin’s structural integrity. These compounds also assist in normal cellular detoxification pathways, helping tissue to breakdown and remove waste materials. This in itself can give the skin an extra glow. If you can’t or don’t want to choose onions and/or garlic each day, MSM is a supplemental presentation of sulphur.

Chickpeas are a great source of fibre, thus working as an internal housekeeper for the digestive tract. Fibre helps to keep the bowel moving, and as such helps to remove waste materials from the body. Keeping the digestive system moving is key to glowing vibrant skin, as even a slight accumulation of waste in the GI tract can lead to ‘auto toxicity’ – essentially reabsorption of our own waste products, which will make the skin look dull and tired, not to mention leaving you feeling far from healthy.
