Purify Your Blood Naturally
Ayurveda believes that blood is the life force, the river of vitality in the human body. For good reason too. We cannot survive without blood. Over the years Ayurvedic and Western studies have revealed that the constitution of one’s blood can lead to health and vitality or sickness. These can range from several disorders including diabetes and high blood pressure to looking and feeling super.
With all things Ayurvedic it is commonly suggested that examining what an individual is currently consuming may contribute to how an illness may outwardly manifest. Consuming bad food, coupled with poor lifestyle habits like excessive drinking or smoking can lead to an accumulation of toxins within the blood. Remember the heart and lungs support the blood by keeping it oxygenated, so if they are compromised in any way (by smoking, for example) it can correlate to blood disorders. So the crux of herbal blood purifying remedies in Ayurveda lies in diet.
