Organic Ashwagandha/Bala Oil
4 fl oz (118 ml)
Supports strength and energy
Promotes healthy muscle mass
Good for young, elderly, and debilitated
Supports an active, athletic lifestyle
This vata pacifying oil can be used to nourish and strengthen the muscles. Useful for athletes, those weakened by debility due to old age or illness, and for those with an active lifestyle requiring strength, this oil brings together two Ayurvedic herbs known for their ability to support muscle mass and energy: ashwagandha and bala. The name "ashwagandha" gives reference to the strength of a horse and is known to rejuvenate both the muscular and nervous systems. "Bala" literally means "strength," inferring the herb's potential to build muscle mass and provide energy. Combined in a base of organic sesame oil, these Ayurvedic herbs are a highly rejuvenative duo. This oil can benefit the young and the elderly, groups in which muscle tone is either developing or wasting away and could use support.
Ashwagandha/Bala Oil can be incorporated into any therapeutic massage where muscle or fascia may be damaged, debilitated, or in need of restoration.
Ashwagandha/Bala Oil (4 fl oz) may be beneficial for these symptoms. The suitability of any product for a condition is highly dependent on the individual.
Please see your doctor before using this product to treat a medical condition.
Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main characteristics
Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance.
By knowing which characteristics are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick.
Every characteristic has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold).
You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite characteristic.
Taste is used to sense the most basic properties and effects of food.
Each taste has a specific medicinal effect on your body.
Cravings for food with certain tastes indicate your body is craving specific medicinal results from food.
Taste is experienced on the tongue and represents your body's reaction to foods.
Sweet taste causes physical satisfaction and attraction whereas bitter taste causes discomfort and aversion.
Kapha should use less sweet taste while Vata and Pitta would benefit from using more sweet taste.
One of the first signs of illness is that your taste and appetite for food changes.
The six tastes are sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent.
Do you crave foods with any of the tastes below?
People tend to get sick, over and over again, due to similar causes and habitual imbalances that are unique to the person.
Your body type summarizes this tendency, showing you the 'type' of conditions and imbalances that frequently challenge your health & wellness.
Using body type, you can also identify remedies likely to improve your strength and resiliency.
Your body type identifies physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses.
The calculation of your body type is based on your medical history.
The 3 functional body types
are Catabolic (Vata), Metabolic (Pitta), and Anabolic (Kapha).
Catabolic individuals tend to break down body mass into energy.
Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy.
Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass.
Catabolic people tend to be easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry.
Metabolic people tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed.
Anabolic people are heavy, stable and grounded, but if they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion.
Ojas is the essence of healthy tissue, immunity, stable energy and happiness. Substances that improve ojas are recommended after long-term illness, debility, emotional and physical trauma, and even sadness.
