Cinnamon Tea

Cinnamon Tea

Ayurveda Wellness Healing loves the taste of cinnamon Tea especially on a cold, wet, dark day.

Through the lens of Ayurveda, cinnamon has been held as a natural healing agent that is used as a potent remedy against colds, stomach problems especially indigestion. It helps stop sugar cravings and is used to aid digestion and circulation. This ancient remedy is used to treat colds, congestion and fevers.

Winter 3-day Cleanse!

Winter 3-day Cleanse!

Join Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC, and Four Directions Integrative Health in a guided, at-home, 3-day Winter Cleanse.

January 12 – 15, 2020

Winter is a great time of year for a cleanse. This is not just a cleanse, but one that also helps to rejuvenate the body and mind.

Seasonal cleansing rids our bodies of all sorts of toxins, pollutants, harsh chemicals, pesticides, and any other Ama (toxic residue) that our physical body has accumulated over the holiday period. Cleanses will help to purify and tone the internal organs, cells, and tissues of the body, flushing out impurities that aren’t serving us.

* Have you been feeling more sluggish and tired lately
* Is your energy level just not what it used to be
* After you eat, all you want to do is take a nap
* Is your thinking as clear and sharp as you’d like
* Do you have a heavy coating on your tongue
* Do you have foul body, breath and/or stool odor
* Are you experiencing indigestion and excessive flatulence
* Do you have body aches
* Is your mind foggy

An Ayurvedic cleanse focuses on resetting the digestive fire, allowing it to rest and strengthen. The detoxifying nature also supports the body’s own natural mechanisms to remove built up toxins from the body. It’s a bit like cleaning out the pipes when the drain gets clogged, or hopefully even before the drain gets clogged.

Included in cleanse:
6 meals
Cleanse Supplements
Oil and Tridoshic Body Scrub
Cleansing Tea
Email and/or phone support
Massage special
30-minute follow up Ayurveda Consultation by phone

Tips to Enjoy a More Peaceful and Healthy Holiday Season

The holidays may be happy and joyful for some, but not all. For many, the holidays can also be a time of added stress

Some Tips to Enjoy a More Peaceful and Healthy Holiday Season – 

#1. Moderation. Moderation. Moderation. Simply your life, especially at the holidays. Moderation in everything, eating, drinking, shopping, and holiday parties and gatherings. Don’t feel like you have to do everything and accept every holiday invitation. L

#2. The 80/20 Rule. Also known as the “Pareto Principle,” named after founder, Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, back in 1848. Pareto found that people can achieve 80% of success with 20% effort. Knowing that we cannot do everything, and perfection is a myth, Instead of trying to do the impossible, a Pareto approach could be, deciding which holiday projects or events are most important to you. Then, consider 20%  of the specific tasks to focus on to achieve those goals that make you happiest. Do those, then drop the rest.

#3. Learn to say ‘no” and loose the guilt. Overextending oneself, even for fun activities, can lead to frustration, stress and even exhaustion and illness. Guilt weights heavy, both literally and figuratively. Make heart-centered, healthy choices, with a me-first attitude, knowing that taking care of yourself, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, allows you to be more present for others, when needed.

#4. Make Time for Yourself to Relax Each Day. Breathing relaxation, mindful meditation, guided imagery and meditation, self-hypnosis, self-reiki can all be learned and put into daily practice. Even 3, 5, 10, 15 or 20 minutes can make a difference and promote health and wellbeing. Treat yourself to an acupuncture, massage, reflexology or reiki session. Take a gentle, yin yoga class.

#5. Make Time to Exercise Each Day. Research shows that exercise (especially aerobic) helpfully boosts our mood and make us feel better by releasing healthy hormones and raising healthy neurotransmitter levels (i.e.endorphins, serotonin). Mantras for Healthy Exercise: “Exercise energizes me.” “Exercise makes me feel better.” Exercise makes me smile.” “A day without exercise is like a day without brushing my teeth.”

#6. Healthy Holiday Eating/Drinking. Eat a healthy meal or snack before the party. Small plates and bowls allow for healthy portions. Maintain healthy thoughts around healthy eating. Guilt-free holiday eating from Harvard Health PublishingMantras for Healthy Eating: “Healthy, balanced, nutritious meals energize me.” I make healthy choices in line with my highest good.” “Healthy is as healthy does.” “A sliver instead of a slice.” “One is enough, two is too many.” “One and done.” Another 80/20 Rule – Stop eating when 80% full. From the teachings of Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei, Buddhist monk and Founder of Komyo ReikiDo™  – “It is advisable to eat frequent, small amounts rather than two or three big meals, and to leave the stomach 20% empty. A feeling of slight hunger goes a long way toward many health benefits.”

#7. Create Special Holiday Memories. Rather than purchasing material items, consider making the holidays about making fun memories with family, friends and neighbors, at low or no cost. Consider a movie, music, cooking baking or scrap booking night. Walk or drive to view holiday decorations. Enjoy an evening of star gazing. Material things can get lost, broken or discarded, but memories live on

#8. Do Something for Those Less Fortunate. Research shows that helping others is actually beneficial for your own mental health and well being. It can help reduce stress, improve your emotional wellbeing and even benefit your physical health. Consider gifts and/or letters to those serving in the military overseas. Visit someone in a nursing home. Volunteer at a shelter or soup kitchen. Offer to bake, cook or decorate for someone who is not able.

#9. Maintain and Daily Attitude of Gratitude. Keep a daily gratitude journal; find one to three things you are grateful for each day. Think about or meditate on people and things you are grateful for. Recommended reading: Simple Abundance, by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

#10. Seek Professional Help. The holidays can lead to increased thoughts and feelings of depression. If that is the case, seek support. Talk to your doctor. Reach out to family, friends, neighbors that live alone, and offer support.

Acorn Squash Stuffed with….

Through the lens of Ayurveda, we are now in the heart of the Vata season, time to think of adding more sweet, sour and salty taste to our diet to balance and pacify the Vata imbalance brought on by the cooling temperatures and winds.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing loves this wonderful recipe that blends the sweetness of acorn squash. (although any squash is great) with nuts and quinoa. Feel free to also top with a little ghee for extra warming support.

ACORN SQUASH STUFFED WITH QUINOA AND ROASTED ALMONDS:
recipe adapted from Whole Living
serves 2-4 depending on how many squash you have

Ingredients

• 2-4 acorn squashes, halved and seeds removed – if you’re serving 2 people get 1 squash,
• 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for brushing on the squash
• sea salt and fresh ground pepper
• ½ cup dry, quinoa, rinsed –1 cups filtered water
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
• 1/2 cup feta, crumbled
• 1/2 cup raw almonds with skins, coarsely chopped
• 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar

Instructions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees, Cut your squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Brush each squash half with a bit of olive oil, and season with some salt and pepper. Roast the squash cut-side down on a baking sheet until tender when pierced with a fork, and caramelized, about 30 minutes.

While the squash is cooking, bring the ½ cup well rinsed quinoa and 1 cups water to a boil in a small sauce pan.

Once the quinoa has come to a boil, give it a stir, cover it and reduce the heat to simmer. Cook the quinoa until all the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes. Let the quinoa cool just a bit and then fluff with a fork.

While the quinoa and squash are cooking, wash and chop up your parsley and toast up the almonds. Coarsely chop up the almonds.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped almonds to the skillet and stir frequently until golden brown in spots, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a paper towel lined plate to get the grease off. Sprinkle the almonds with some fine sea salt. Set them aside.

In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, 1/2 cup chopped parsley, 1/2 cup feta, almonds, 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Fill up your squash halves with the quinoa and dig in.

Got leftover quinoa? Just reheat it in a skillet with a touch of coconut oil or add almond milk and raisins for a yummy breakfast cereal the next morning.
