1 Ayurveda treats the individual and not just the problem and it is essential for women to objectively assess what they’re feeding their bodies on a regular basis. While seasonal organic, fresh food is essential, moderating or eliminating the intake of alcohol, cigarettes, sweets and junk food is equally important.
2 The popular trend of raw diets and juice cleanses can be incorporated but with caution. Their cleansing prowess suits those whose constitutions are pretty robust to begin with, but certain fruits, vegetables and condiments can imbalance certain doshas. So, the ideal juice cleanse regimen can be customised according to your unique dosha make-up, in consultation with an Ayurvedic physician.
3 Like juicing and raw food, the trend of including herbal and detox teas the diet is also very popular and predominant. An Ayurvedic practitioner will be able to tell you the best herbal teas for your dosha make-up. Popular detox teas include those with spearmint, peppermint, psyllium husk, fennel, turmeric, lemon ginger, cardamom, black Pepper and dandelion root. Spearmint is very woman-friendly as it helps regulate hormones, digestive processes and reduces feelings of bloating and heaviness.
Daily and weekly beauty rituals 4 can include safe, non-abrasive natural cleansers and exfoliators to unclog pores, hydrate and tone the skin, and shed dead skin to revive a dull, fatigued, or blemished complexion.
