TURMERIC AND AYURVEDA-
Turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurveda. Turmeric is regarded as a Superfood in Ayurveda for thousands of years. This is one spice that should be in every kitchen and every medicine cabinet. In Ayurveda, turmeric is used to remove toxins, called aama, from the body. Aama means “uncooked food” and it’s one of the root causes of all diseases. Turmeric helps to digest aama in the body at a very deep level.
Turmeric is one of the few spices that is sattvic (along with cumin, coriander, fennel, cardamom, and ginger). Sattvic spices add flavour and medicinal action to meals without making them overly spicy and mentally agitating. Turmeric is used in Ayurveda to balance all three doshas—Vata, pitta, and Kapha.
If taken in excess, however, it can aggravate pitta and Vata. Turmeric’s healing nature enables it to have mobilizing and cleansing energy, which naturally enhances digestion, helping to reduce excess Kapha and any accumulation of toxins in the body.
Turmeric is effective for cleansing the chakras too. Turmeric helps promotes both purity of mind and body and so it helps to clear these channels for the proper flow of prana to the chakras. Haldi (turmeric) and kumkum (also made from turmeric and dried lime) have a deep significance in Hindu and Buddhist culture.
It not only symbolizes fertility and prosperity; turmeric also represents purity and spiritual connection with the earth (turmeric being a rhizome) and the deep yellow associated with Sun and abundance and sacral chakra.
