Herbal Spotlight: Inflammation

Herbal Spotlight: Inflammation

When I first sat down to write this, my goal to was to do something like a top 10 of Ayurveda’s most anti-inflammatory herbs. But the more I dove into the nitty-gritty of the ranking, the more impossible it became to decide; the research is never ending. So instead of a top 10, let’s explore what inflammation is, and how we can tackle it effectively.

Your hair needs good proteins nutrients to stay strong and healthy: proteins like chia seeds and avocado, leafy greens with phytonutrients and trace minerals like chard and sprouts- don't forget that every cell in your body, every strand of hair on your head is the result of what you give your body to work with: food is the building bricks of your body. Be sure to keep up a balanced and nutrient rich diet!

Herbal Spotlight: Black Cumin Seed

Hippocrates' Go-To Wellness Recommendation 

 Black Cumin Seed, also known as Black Seed, is probably one of the most underrated superfoods you didn't know the health food store had in stock. Like many of nature's most giving plants, Black Cumin Seed brings a cornucopia of benefits to your body, both internally and externally. Native to the Mediterranean, Northern Africa, and the Indian Subcontinent, this nutritionally dense, antioxidant rich, immune boosting little seed has earned the reputation of being a panacea. Let's delve into why.

Herbal Spotlight: Neem

Herbal Spotlight: Neem

The Immune System's Handy-Man

Neem. It's an Ayurvedic powerhouse, used in a variety of treatments from digestive concerns to insect repellent, from coughs and colds to malaria, from treating intestinal parasites to a natural household disinfectant, from acne to serious rashes. As an herbalist, I often hear India's Neem tree likened to America's Dandelion.  It's an easy comparison to make; both are prolific and grow like weeds, both have wonderful and diverse medicinal properties, neither really gets the attention they deserve, and both can be used to make beer!

Herbal Spotlight: Pomegranate

In recent years pomegranates have been getting a fair amount of attention as a superfood, and rightly so! But the lesser known side of their superfood powers pertain to what the oil from the seeds can do for your skin. This highly viscous oil helps to moisturize, balance hormones, protect the skin, impede the aging process, and promote collagen production.
