Those who suffer from digestive problems but do not want to take medications that may lead to unpleaseant side effect may find relief from an Ayurvedic herbal mix based on the Indian healing tradition.
Ayurveda was developed as much as 5,000 years ago and offers holistic cures for common intestinal and digestive problems, using natural herbal remedies and essential oils to help restore the body to a balanced state.
A mixture that is based on one such ancient formula designed for maintaining proper digestive health is Triphala, a blend containing equal proportions of three different fruits Emblica officinalis, Terminalia chebula and Terminalia bellirica.
"Faulty digestion is the number one cause of disease and the preparation helps restore digestion by strengthening the liver function, cleansing the gall bladder, normalizing stomach acids, strengthening the peristaltic action of the GI musculature and alleviating constipation," says Pamela D. Palmer, CEO of ElanVeda, the maker of Triphala.
Other health benefits of Ayurveda include stress relief, as it has been shown that a specialized treatment called Ayurvedic Panchakarma has beneficial effects on the nervous system.
