Most weight-loss programs focus on calories and dietary fat, eating less food and doing more exercise. What if there was a different way to lose weight with triphala?
Modern processed foods are often difficult to digest properly and can sometimes become stuck within the digestive system as compacted waste matter, trapped in the folds of the lower intestine. This compacted waste is also a prime breeding ground for parasites (which is a whole other health issue) and can be the pathway for toxins entering your bloodstream.
It’s often reported that regularly taking triphala churna internally can have benefits for your eyes and help improve your vision. On this page though, I wanted to share something different – a triphala eye wash treatment that has really helped my eyes from the outside.
I tend to be working in front of screens for many hours each morning and, while I try to remember to take breaks, it doesn’t always happen when the writing is flowing. In the past I’d find some mornings my eyes were starting to get strained and even a little red.
Here’s how to use the benefits of triphala churna to enhance your digestion, reduce intestinal problems and improve your health in general. Also ahead is how to make up triphala and dosage information.
Triphala churna is an Ayurvedic preparation that is a combination of the powdered fruit of three different trees – haritaki, bibhitaki and amalaki (commonly known as amla).
It is prized in Ayurveda for its ability to balance the doshas (the elements of body and mind) and enhance the process of digestion and elimination. Triphala is known to be beneficial for removing toxins from the digestive tract, cleansing the liver, gallbladder and kidneys and purifying the blood.
While triphala has many health benefits, what are some of the potential concerns and side effects to be aware of when using it and what should you do if you have a negative reaction?
The major precaution to be aware of when using triphala is that it shouldn’t be taken by pregnant women.
While this is often a blanket statement used with pretty much every type of supplement or herb, Ayurvedic practitioners and texts advise specifically against taking it during pregnancy so it’s very important.
Triphala is one of the most highly prized formulas in traditional Ayurvedic medicine and it can have some remarkable benefits for your health.
The name itself means ‘three fruits’ and it is made by combining preparations of dried and powdered bibhitaki, haritaki and amalaki (commonly known as amla).
Each of these powerful fruits have their own health giving properties but, according to Ayurveda, when they are combined in triphala the benefits are amplified.
Triphala is especially revered for its ability to aid in balancing the three doshas – vata, pitta and kapha. In Ayurvedic understanding, imbalances in the doshas can affect you not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well.
