Arqa Ayurveda – A Return to Balance Recipe
Arqa’s newest range of Ayurvedic offerings will help you detox, de-stress and rejuvenate.
Do you find yourself increasingly stressed and overwhelmed by the hectic pace of life? Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of natural healing has simple and effective answers to the challenges of the modern world.
Ayur means life and Veda means Science, making Ayurveda less a system of medicine and more a holistic science of life with practical applications for daily living. At Arqa Ayurveda, we unite this ancient wisdom with the purest ingredients that detoxify, de-stress and rejuvenate our minds and bodies.
Decoding the Doshas
According to Ayurveda, there are three doshas or life energies that shape our physical and mental health.
These can be brought into balance when we incorporate certain herbs and botanicals into our daily diet.
Is stress overwhelming your daily experience? For most of us, the answer to that is yes. A universal element of the modern human experience, some stress is beneficial and productive. But too much stress can be harmful.
Impossible deadlines, hectic mornings, traffic, road rage and countless other factors cause us to feel weak and overpowered.
Many of our Ayurvedic herbs have the ability to foster clarity and bolster the nervous system in the face of our daily challenges.
Ashwagandha has long been celebrated for its ability to calm the mind. As a highly regarded adaptogen, ashwagandha gives the body energy throughout the day and sound sleep at night.
Brahmi, another amazing Ayurvedic herb, boosts memory and reduces anxiety and stress.
Our bodies are constantly exposed to environmental toxins, processed foods, unresolved emotions, and psychological stress. Over time, these stressors can cause toxicity to build up in the system and compromise our health.
The practice of cleansing is a vital part of an Ayurvedic lifestyle. Arqa Ayurveda’s herbs and botanicals clear accumulated waste from the mind and the tissues and helps you feel vibrant throughout the changing seasons.
Neem, known for its antioxidant properties, is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that purifies the body. Triphala Churna, which is a combination of three fruits- haritaki, bibhitaki and amla – is used in Ayurveda as a mild bowel cleanser. The synergistic effect of its three ingredients detoxifies the body and rids it of harmful toxins.
After our bodies have been cleansed and detoxified, it’s a good time to offer them some extra support. This is where Arqa Ayurveda’s range of rejuvenating herbs come in.
Our Lakadong turmeric, a special variety of turmeric is grown in the Jaintia Hills of Meghalaya, contains the most curcumin of any turmeric in the world. It contains between 7 to 9% of curcumin against 2 to 3% in most other varieties.
According to Ayurveda, turmeric reduces infections, improves the complexion and gives the body an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant boost. Similarly, moringa, an antioxidant powerhouse, helps regulate blood sugar, lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol.
