What is Kitchari?

So, what’s kitchari and what does it have to do with Ayurveda and, more importantly, you?

kitchari

Kitchari is a traditional Ayurvedic dish that’s known to assist in detoxing the body and balancing all three doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Kitchari provides awesome nutrients while cleansing the toxins out of the body. It’s a great way to cleanse the body and soul in a gentle way.

Kitchari is made with mung beans, Basmati rice, seasonal vegetables, ghee and spices. The mung beans are known for their ability to remove toxins, specifically pesticides and insecticides, from the body. Mung beans are also a great source of protein and provide a source of good carbohydrates and fiber. It’s also a great dish for those having digestive problems and recovering from illness. There’s many versions of Kitchari out there from simple to more elaborate.

Digestion = Agni

Digestion = Agni

Through the lens of Ayurveda we are what we “digest” not what we eat.

If we don’t digest our food we start to form “Ama”. Ama is a Sanskrit word, which literally means undigested or uncooked. The first stage of disease is also sometimes called Ama “toxins”.

Ayurveda also explains another entity called “Agni”. This word literally means fire. But in this context it means digestive fire. As long as the digestive fire is strong, Ama cannot be formed in the body. Agni (digestive fire) helps to melt down and flush out Ama (toxins) from the body.

Weak Agni (digestive fire) becomes weak by eating out of one’s constitution (Vata, Pitta or Kapha), eating the same foods, overeating, drinking too much water with meals, staying up late, resisting the urge to eat and eating at irregular times.

Presence of Ama (toxins)
Eczema
Psoriasis
Cysts
Swellings
Painful or swollen joints
Hypercholesterolemia
Blocked arteries

Symptoms of Ama in the body:
Heaviness
Lethargy
Irregular appetite or reduced appetite
Skin is dull and lusterless with blemishes, acne
Bloated stomach, gases, flatulence
Metallic taste in the mouth
White coating on the tongue
Foul smelling breath and sweat
Constipation, foul smelling stools which may be sticky, heavy and sink.
Lack of mental clarity and energy.
A sense of heaviness in the abdomen, legs or body as a whole
Weary and unenthusiastic feeling
Blocked feeling anywhere in the body, including constipation, sinus congestion and difficulty in breathing

Ayurveda Spring Wellbeing Workshop ~

Ayurveda Spring Wellbeing Workshop ~

When:  Saturday, April 8

Time:  1:00 – 3:00pm

Where:  Trident Yoga, 214 Eastern Ave, Gloucester

 

Join Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC at Trident Yoga in Gloucester for informative and interative spring workshop through the lens of Ayurveda.

According to Ayurveda, spring is a KAPHA season, a mixture of earth and water elements. We know this because of its characteristics: wet, cold, heavy, dull, sticky, soft and firm. Too much Kapha leads to common springtime symptoms like congestions colds, flu, cough, sinus infections, sleepiness, and winter weight gain.

The mind can become dull and lose some of its winter sharpness. Common emotional problems are sadness, depression and over-attachment to the past.

Learn how to lessen Kapha’s effect on your health so you can feel great this spring!

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian way of living with vitality, good health and abundant happiness. The path to good health is unique for each person.

In this workshop you’ll learn:
• Seasonal routines for the spring Kapha season
• Yoga postures for the season
• Diet and lifestyle changes
• Recipes using spices and herbs for the season

Food and oil sampling as well!
