Spring is a time of purification and growth. According to Tamil Siddha tradition, both the spring and autumn equinoxes are ripe times to detox your mind, body and spirit.
Many people do spring cleaning to remove debris and unwanted clutter from from their environments. By the same token, a good body detox helps you clear unwanted toxins from your body, opening you up to new and fresh energy, mental clarity and more efficient organ function.
Below are two herbs commonly used in Tamil Siddha and Ayurvedic medicine for detox. They all have been used for thousands of years to cleanse the body and declutter the mind. We find these to be great additions to a solid spring detox plan.
Eclipta alba, also known as Bhringraj, is known as a skin purifier and an Ayurvedic and Siddha remedy for hair loss. It’s also a powerful liver protector. This medicinal herb aids in detox by empowering the liver to transform fat into energy and removes excess fat from the liver. It also gently removes liver toxins. Ancient texts prescribe eclipta alba in powder form for liver diseases, including fatty liver. Some recovering alcoholics use it to replenish their livers after excessive damage.
There is also a rumor that this herb cleanses karma by changing your
thoughts. Tamil Siddha Masters have used it to connect with the crown chakra and access the higher intelligence and ecstatic states of awareness. People who use eclipta alba for detox also report improved intuition, higher energy and deeper sleep. It’s great for tuning into the finer vibrations of the subtle body and accessing spirit in meditation.
Eclipta alba is the active ingredient in Nambu’s Enlightenment Formula. It’s infused with ancient Siddha sound technology to add to its holistic benefits.
Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Studies show that it could rival common over the counter inti-inflammatory drugs. It’s also part of many detox plans for good reason.
A Thailand study revealed that turmeric repaired liver damage in a group
of lab rats. Other studies demonstrate that it also protects the liver from damage and boosts its ability to remove toxins from the body.
Black pepper contains a chemical called bioperine which increases the bioavailability of turmeric by a factor of 1,000. This means that your body will absorb 1,000 times more of the detoxifying phytonutrients of turmeric known as curcuminoids.
Turmeric also has mental and spiritual benefits. Many people use it to declutter the mind and reduce stress.
Our Hi-Health Formula contains both turmeric and black pepper extract. It’s infused with sacred sound technology known to the Siddhas to purify the energy body and boost will power.
Both turmeric and eclipta alba have been renowned by the Tamil Siddhas for their physical and spiritual benefits. Their holistic qualities make them perfect for any spring or autumn detox plan.
