Black Pepper

Black Pepper

Black Pepper = heat

Through the lens of Ayurveda, the heating and pungent properties of black pepper work to help metabolize food as it is digested in our system. The stimulating quality is also used to clear congestion in the respiratory system as well as other processes.

Choose organically grown black pepper associated with a fair trade cooperative is highly preferable to conventional pepper.

Black Pepper Aids Digestion through the lens of Ayurveda in rekindling agni, (digestive fire)

Black Pepper is an Antioxidant and helps in cold and flu remedies. Black pepper and honey is a traditional Ayurvedic approach to respiratory congestion, helping to expectorate and dry up mucus membranes (Frawley, 1986). In Western herbalism, it is used in antiseptic cold and flu preventatives like fire cider.

Pepper has cleansing and antioxidant properties, and helps to transport the benefits of any other herbs to the different parts of the body.

Black pepper is a warming spice and has a pungent taste. It is terrific for pacifying Kapha, and just a little bit helps pacify Vata. Black pepper should be used in moderation as it does increase Pitta.

Cheese and Food Combining ~

Cheese and Food Combining ~

Cheese and Food Combining…

Our digestive system was not designed to handle non-stop large, heavy, complex meals. The western eating habits place continual stress on the digestive system with inadequate “down-time” for the system to recuperate. When we over eat, eat too heavy or snack in-between meals we overwork the system causeing log-jams downstream resulting in undigested food that putrefies and ferments, leading to gas, bloating and potential accumulation of “ama” (toxins) from food and unprocessed emotions.

Though the lens of Ayurveda – food combining plays a big part in our digestion.

Cheese, which is cold, heavy and mucus forming, is best eaten alone or with vegetables. Many of the western serving methods (i.e., cheese and crackers; cheese and apples; macaroni and cheese, cheese with sandwiches, cheese pizza, etc.) are very difficult to digest.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves cheese sprinkled with a bit of black pepper.
