Dr. Oz's show today..... Ayurvedic healing

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I really enjoy most of his shows, don't enjoy the ones where it is a celebrity mainly. Unless they have a story to tell like Sophia Vergara.
Anyway todays show was really good. I am going to look into the Ayurvedic healing. They had some tea, homemade curry powder and Triphala (3 berries) All 3 help with losing the fat. I am
definitely going to try the tea and the homemade curry powder for now. Will check into the Triphala later. But they are known to loosen up the stubborn fat. Like the last 10 lbs. You know how hard that is! Recipes for the tea and curry powder are on The curry powder is homemade and makes a great gift for friends that you know of that are struggling with their weight.
Another thing mentioned on the show, is we all should be eating our heaviest meal at noon, and a light one for dinner. I always did the opposite, mainly because that was the way I was raised. Now I know better.

Ayurvedic fat fighter #1

The first ayurvedic fat fighter is a special “detox” tea. It includes a combination of ingredients that help to improve digestion, break down fat, and “unclog” the channels in our body by removing ama.

Detox Tea

Boil 4 to 5 cups of water in the morning.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of the following seeds to the water and continue to let it boil for about 5 minutes with the lid on.

Whole cumin seeds
Whole coriander seeds
Whole fennel seeds

Strain out the seeds and pour the liquid into a thermos. The key is to make the tea fresh every morning, place it in a thermos, and take small sips of it throughout the day. It is best to drink it warm or hot. If the tea is too strong or if you experience some initial discomfort, reduce the amount of seeds to 1/4 teaspoon for 2 weeks, and then increase it back to 1/2 teaspoon.

Just one of the recipes, the others are on his website. I definitely am going to try this.

    When you get around to triphala, you might want to try my unconventional use for it... it makes an excellent face and body scrub... tightens and smoothes the skin.
The 3 fruits are astringent tighten and clean the skin, they are also full of vitamin C.

Just wet some in the palm of your hand, rub into your skin,ideally let it dry or sit there for a while, then rinse. I've also added it to bath water.
I have been using it this way for years.

The only caveat...triphala can leave a film of yellow in your bath tub or shower but that comes off quite nicely with some elbow grease and a scrub pad, a bit of soap.

    Since the Ayurvedic life says no onions or garlic, I couldn't sustain it.

    It's good that Dr Oz is bringing Ayurvedic medicine to the mass. Ayurvedic reminds me of another Indian system, yoga back in the 70's. 40 years later, millions of people doing yoga everyday. I see a parallel with Ayurvedic being very popular years from now. It's that effective. I have a blog that touched briefly on an Ayurvedic book last month.
