Putting together Ayurvedic tea blends for the waiting room. Looking forward to sharing these with patients and guests.  

 According to ancient Ayurvedic medicine we are all unique and are dominant in one or two main doshas, or constitutions. They are the energy that makes up  our body, mind, and spirit. 

 It’s important to stay balanced and bring your main dosha into harmony within yourself and with the outside environment.  

 One way of doing so is using herbs and teas to suite your personal dosha.  

 We also sell these blends at the clinic. Stop by for a sample today : )

Sunday mornings & herbal coffee… take that, spring time change! 

 Here we have organic roasted dandelion root, chicory root, carob and maca! Great way to get a dark, bitter cup of warmth all while cleansing the liver, stimulating digestion, boosting energy and nourishing the adrenal (stress) glands.  

 The debate over real coffee beans being a health food still continues. Some pros are its antioxidant value (which you can get de-caffeinated btw), it reduces risk of diabetes, and it increases cognition. Some cons are its association with inflammatory markers in the blood, auto immune disease, osteoporosis, anxiety, and it’s laden with pesticides.  

 Caffeine and coffee are yang substances. They give a lot of energy in short bursts, but don’t replenish and rebuild, and may cause you to feel more depleted in the long run.  

 If your thinking of making changes my suggestion is focus on organic first, consider Swiss water decaf next, and then try herbal coffee and herbal teas… They are actually pretty tasty! 

 We carry this herbal blend at the clinic if you’re curious to try!
