Ayurvedic Medicine For Good Sleep

Ayurvedic Medicine For Deep Sleep

According to Ayurveda, chronic or excessive stress depletes Ojas which is said to be the physiological expression of consciousness, in charge of immunity, reproduction, beauty, and the overall health and well-being of the individual.

Ojas takes 30 days to be manufactured in the body, and is the result of numerous enzymatic actions that start with the digesting of food into the body’s lymph, blood, muscle, fat, bone, nerve and reproductive tissues. Once these tissues are successfully made and deemed healthy by the body, the final product, or essence, of all these tissues—ojas—is produced.

When ojas is depleted, either from stress, lack of sleep, bad food, poor digestion, excessive activity or inactivity, the body breaks down fast. Depleted ojas can manifest as low sex drive, insomnia, dry skin, stiff joints, accelerated aging and make a person disease prone.

Deep Sleep Herbal Milk

In Ayurveda, milk is the main vehicle through which certain herbs and spices can be used to rebuild depleted ojas. Here is a good ayurvedic herbal medicine for a good and deep sleep.

You will need

1 cup of Milk
1 tbsp Chopped dates
2 tsp Chopped almonds
1 tbsp Coconut meat or flakes
½ tsp Saffron (1/2 tsp)
1-2 tsp Ghee
1/8th tsp Cardamom
1 tsp Raw Honey

Directions

Add all the ingredients to milk and bring it to boil slowly. You can add 1/8tsp of Shatavari or Ashwagandha to the milk. Once the milk, herbs, and spices are cooked. Turn off the flame, add raw honey.
Drink one cup of this hot milk each night for 3 months to rebuild ojas levels and support sleep patterns.
You may substitute milk with non-dairy milk such as almond, coconut or any other milk of your choice. Though you won’t get the benefits of the milk peptides, you’ll have a vehicle for the ojas-building foods and herbs, and some calming benefits from the warmth of the milk.

Ginger Elixir – Ayurvedic Digestive Drink

The Digestive Wonders of Ginger:

This is an easy to make Ayurvedic Digestive Drink. Ginger acts wonders to fire up our digestive system. Good digestion is the cornerstone of health and well-being according to Ayurveda. When our digestive system is working well, we absorb all the necessary nutrients from the food we eat, enjoy healthy circulation and have a good robust immunity to diseases.

One great way to fire up the agni (digestive system) is to drink this ginger elixir on a regular basis especially during this vata (fall) season. Vata digestion is delicate and when imbalanced is prone to constipation, irregular bowel movements, and in some instances may experience loss of appetite. During this fall season outside weather gets dry, rough, and cool. Our bodies start reacting to this vata season, we start noticing dryness on our skin, cracked lips, brittle hair. This is because, the colon and large intestine tend to get dry – the primary seat of vata inside our bodies.

Per Ayurveda, ajeerna (indigestion) is the root cause of many diseases and pains. Here are few symptoms of vata imbalanced digestion -

  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Irregular Bowel Movements
  • Hiccups

Ginger Elixir Recipe:

One great way to alleviate these symptoms is to have ginger elixir on a regular basis. This fires up the agni! It is important to have this drink 20-30 mins before lunch and dinner to kindle our digestive fire.

  • 1 cup Water
  • 1-2 inch grated fresh Ginger
  • 1/2 Lime/Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 tsp crushed Black Pepper
  • pinch of Himalayan salt

For the sweetener, you could even use turbinado sugar or honey (if not a strict vegan). The key is to not to make this drink too sweet, you need to taste the pungency of ginger and heat of the black pepper when you drink this. This is what aids in better digestion.

I generally blend all these ingredients in my Vitamix and like to drink it right away! This way, does taste little strong, you could squeeze out the pulp of ginger in a nut bag and then drink it. Either way it works!!
