MEDICINAL QUALITIES

Increases These Qualities (Gunas)

Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main states (gunas). Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance. By knowing which states are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick. Every state has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold). You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite state.

TASTES
Digestive Effects Help

The 6 Tastes

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?

BITTER

DOSHAS
Digestive Effects Help

The Three Doshas / Body Types

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 (doshas), 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.

I have joint and muscular pain most days, which my doctor believes *may be* fibromyalgia. My therapist suggested turmeric with ginger (can't find this together), and although I found capsules of turmeric, am wondering if just using the spice without the expense of buying the capsule form would work as well...? It works like magic! Thanks, John!

Yes, you can use the spice without a capsule, as long as you buy it fresh from an herb company. Turmeric from the grocery store has very little medicinal strength.

Good to know (we have a spice store in town)! Thanks, John!

- Jeannie, Richmond, VA, 01-31-13 (Reply)
This is the best Turmeric I've ever had! The color is vibrant, the smell is fragrant and it is quite tasty.
