Ashwagandha, the powerful anti-aging herb
Ayurveda brought many incredible resources for health and wellbeing to the West. One of the most praised ones is underestimated: Ashwagandha. This plant has incredible properties in its roots and berries - from reducing inflammation and stress, to supporting healthy thyroids and adrenals. Ashwagandha has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic tradition, and it is extraordinary to treat depression and anxiety.
In Ayurveda, a depressive state of mind is usually a Kapha imbalance, while anxiety and panic attacks are related with a Vata imbalance. Ashwagandha also helps to calm the neural system and reduce stress from adrenals, a completely Pitta imbalance. This tri-doshic herb can do wonders to any person, kind of like a miracle plant.
Often called the "Indian Ginseng", the plant grows in dry soil and sunny environments - perfect for California. It takes six months to harvest, and you can use the berry and its roots to create your own "ginseng tonic" for balanced body, mind and spirit!
The energy of the Ashwagandha plant can support meditative practices, and balance hormonal glands.
