Ancient ayurvedic healers knew
that herbs were the repositories of the most concentrated form
of nature's intelligence. Researchers today are confirming
that herbs contain the richest mixtures of
phytochemicals-natural chemicals such as bioflavonoids that
offer medicinal and nutritional value. Herbal formulations
made with whole herbs, as Maharishi Ayurveda supplements are,
work more like foods than like drugs in the body. They offer
potent nourishment to the cells and tissues and correct
imbalances in the physiology over time, safely, without
causing side effects.
How quickly you see results
from taking herbal formulations depends on your individual
physiology. If a person has a high level of accumulated toxins
(ama) blocking the channels of the body, the herbs may take
longer to work. The diet and daily routine of the person also
has a bearing on how quickly and how well herbs work, as also
the health goal being addressed. The product flyers and
brochures, and our newsletters, offer dietary and lifestyle
recommendations that serve to enhance the benefit of the
herbs. Focusing on one or two health goals at a time is best.
Try and identify the imbalance that came first, and work on
correcting that to start with. Sometimes you may find that
clearing the original imbalance addresses some secondary
imbalances as well.
Nutritional supplements work best
if they are taken regularly, every day. If you tend to forget
to take them, devise ways to remind yourself. Make notes in
your daytimer or put post-it notes on your computer. Keep them
on your dining table. Carry them with you in a tablet
dispenser to work.
We use whole herbs in our
formulas, not isolated ingredients, because we understand that
Nature's healing wisdom is a delicate balance that is
preserved in the whole plant, not an isolated chemical.
