Herb of the Month
Each month a new herb is highlighted to give an overview of the plant, habitat and its uses. Herbs in Ayurveda are well documented over millennium each with characteristics describing their nature, heating, cooling, sweet, bitter or drying to name a few.
Ayurvedic classical herbal combinations such as Triphala or herbs such as Turmeric are often in the media as a cure for anything and everything. Ayurveda does not work in this way and has specific recommendations and formulas that work in synergy to provide the desired results of the professional. The complexity in herbal combinations is one of the reasons why the APA suggests you work with an Ayurvedic Doctor or Practitioner. Therapists and Associate Therapists are not trained in herbs and are unable to offer herbal advice.
