CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW

Corn on the cob ignites memories of a county fair, childhood summer barbecues, and Fourth of July fireworks! Biting into hot, buttery, juicy corn right off the grill is a treat anyone can enjoy, especially when spiced with coriander and cilantro. Cilantro & lime add a refreshing twist that helps you celebrate summer. Coriander adds a delicate touch of sweetness to the butter, making this simple recipe your new backyard favorite.

Feel Light at your next Summer BBQ

When fried chicken and heavy potato salad drag you down, making you feel like taking a nap, this tasty corn on the cob treat keeps your summer barbecue hopping. The light and zesty qualities of cilantro, coriander, & lime lift your mood & restore your pep. Corn itself is a diuretic, making it a light, supportive choice at a festive summer day. Corn's sweetness seems to ease the heat of the day.

Cool cilantro is an antidote for a hot, sizzling summer day as well as pungent foods commonly found at a barbecue like tomatoes and chilis. Coriander and cilantro are different parts of the same plant, coriander being the seed while cilantro is the leaf. Although the leaves are cooling, the seeds are slightly warming. Both cilantro & coriander aid digestion, helpful in the heat of the day when appetite is sluggish.

Note: This recipe may be drying for Vata types, especially on a hot day in the sun. As a remedy to its drying qualities, add a pinch of salt!

Increases These Biocharacteristics (Gunas)

Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main biocharacteristics (gunas). 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.

DOSHAS
Dosha Help

The Three Doshas / Body Types

According to the biocharacteristic theory of medicine, people tend to get sick, over and over again, due to habitual causes and 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. They are easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry. Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy. They tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed. Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass. If they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion. Anabolic people tend to be stable and grounded.
