Ayurveda Lifestyle Turmeric Cumin Rescue Tea
As your body enters a natural cleanse cycle, the last two weeks of February may be critical for your health. The heavy snowfall & dampness characteristic of February is a sure sign that spring is approaching. Winter fat starts to melt, clogging your circulatory system, and making blood rich and oily. Without proper diet and herbal support, symptoms like a runny nose, watery eyes, dark circles, sneezing, coughing, itchy nose/eyes, asthma, and headaches run rampant. As dampness builds, you'll suffer from other ailments as well, like sore throats, puffiness in your skin, and heaviness in your chest. These are all important warning signs that your body's natural detox cycle is causing a buildup of congestion in your body. Take caution, as this is a peak season for serious ailments like congestive heart failure and heart attacks.

Sip Turmeric & Cumin Rescue Tea to ease February ailments. Cumin's warmth and rustic dryness soaks up the excess of spring moisture. It's pungency dilates blood vessels, helping blood flow smoothly through your veins and restoring your skin's healthy glow. Turmeric invigorates your blood and gets it moving again, dispelling winter stagnation. Turmeric helps to directly thin the blood, digest proteins, and metabolize fats efficiently. Together, these spices provide some relief from the imbalances of winter and the coming spring.

Clean Your Blood

Turmeric's powerful health effects are more beneficial in the spring than any other time of year. You may have heard turmeric toted as a cure-all herb: it's antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-toxicity, anti-diabetic, antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-Alzheimer. Turmeric is "anti" all things! Many of its contributions to your health are due to it's powerful liver and blood-cleansing ability. As your body naturally thickens your blood in the springtime, turmeric keeps it thins and light, helps to neutralize blood sugar, and destroys toxicity. It aids in digestive and respiratory conditions which run rampant in spring. In fact, turmeric acts as an antibacterial while restoring intestinal flora for excellent digestion.

With thick, heavy blood clogging your circulation in springtime, it's common to lose your appetite and feel sluggish. Cumin is an excellent digestive & stomach aid to restore your appetite. Its pungent warmth dries excess fluid from your circulation so that your limbs feel light and mind clear.

Fix Spring Allergies in Winter

If you already have allergies in the spring, it's too late; you missed the detox window. That's why blood detoxifying teas like Turmeric Cumin Rescue Tea are so important to incorporate while it's still winter. By improving fat metabolism and keeping your blood light, thin, and mobile, you set the stage for a healthy spring.

Turmeric Cumin Tea by Constitution

Thanks to its ability to calm stress, turmeric is a cleansing herb that in mild doses doesn't disturb vata. Cumin is also supportive of deficient vata dosha. Hot pitta constitutions, however, will benefit from using fresh turmeric instead of dried while making this recipe (dried is just too hot for pitta). Turmeric Cumin Rescue Tea is fully beneficial for heavy kapha dosha, who tends to suffer the most in springtime from congestion and stagnation.

SUGGESTED USE

Increases These Qualities (Gunas)

Ayurveda helps you assess how you feel through the 20 main therapeutic feelings or qualities called gunas. Through the gunas you can articulate, experience and develop sensitivity to the signals your body sends you. Imbalanced gunas are the root of your imbalances. Every guna has an opposite which balances is (i.e. hot balances cold). You create balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite guna.

TASTES
Digestive Effects Help

The 6 Tastes

Taste has meaning in Ayurveda, and brings physical and emotional changes to your body. Taste is experienced on the tongue and is your body's reaction to foods much in the same way that your emotions are mental reactions to experiences. 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? Food and herbs with the following tastes could aggravate your symptoms.

DOSHAS
Digestive Effects Help

The Three Doshas / Body Types

Your body type shows how your strengths, as well as how your body typically goes out of balance. It also shows how your body responds to the environment. Your body type is comprised of certain qualities and affects every part of you - your physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses. This is because your body type is based on how your body uses energy. Ayurveda has 3 body types (doshas), called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Vata spends energy. Pitta burns energy. Kapha stores energy. Vata people tend to be easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry. Pitta people tend to be hot, focused, driven, and easily inflamed. Kapha people are heavy, stable and grounded, but if they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion.
