How Does This Ayurvedic Food Improve Wellness?
CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW
People crave tobacco because it temporarily stimulates the lungs and circulation. But afterwards tobacco creates weaker lungs and worse circulation. A better treatment option for easy breathing and circulation of prana is to eat a proper diet according to your doshas.
Many native meso american peoples drank coffee, chocolate and smoked tobacco as medicinal herbs, sacraments and in shamanic ceremony, a practice that continues to this day. However, many non-native americans abuse these substances by self indulging on them daily without reverance, ceremony, prayer, or deeper knowledge of the medicinal effects.
