a man dealing with a headache

In Sanskrit, ama means toxin or undigested metabolic waste. It is an umbrella term for all sticky, slimy, aggravating, and toxic substances accumulated in the body. When our body’s metabolic efficiency is compromised, we create AMA. Its elimination is of the utmost importance. The stubborn nature of the AMA causes it to stick to the gastrointestinal tract, clogging arteries, seeping under the skin, and creeping upwards to the subtle channels of the mind.Listen Here

Taking Care of the Oral Health the Ayurvedic Way

oral health

You must have heard a great deal about the importance of oral hygiene for your dental health. But do you know that Ayurvedic practitioners believe your oral health is a window to your digestive health and psycho-emotional balance? Anything that comes across your senses has to be trusted by your oral cavity first. Whether you hear, smell, touch, or look at something, you don’t trust it unless it comes in contact with your oral cavity. For example, if you see a delicious food item, you’ll automatically try to smell it, pick it up to see how it feels in your hands, and shake to see if you can hear something. However, the doubt whether you should consume will remain until you put it in your mouth. If it tastes bitter, you’ll immediately spit it out and your trust in that item will be lost.Listen Here

Sleep Podcast

Hormonology with Gabrielle Lichterman

In this podcast, Tiffany (Ayurvedic practitioner) and Vaidya. Jay Parla discuss one of an integral part of our daily routine, sleep. Just as food nourishes the body, sleep tends to nourish our mind, it rejuvenates and makes the entire body systems to reset after a tiring day.

Hormonology with Gabrielle Lichterman

At a certain age, people become susceptible to colorectal diseases, which are caused by abnormalities of the colon or the rectal area. Colonoscopy is a procedure used to detect these changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. It is a preventive diagnostic technique done to diagnose and treat diseases of the rectum and colon.

The procedure depends on the preparation of the person who is undergoing it. Before the colonoscopy, the patient needs to prepare thoroughly by cleansing their colon and assuring that it does not have any sort of fecal material that is coating or sticking onto the surface of the colon. Listen Here

Winter Podcast

Hormonology with Gabrielle Lichterman

In winter, due to the dry and cold weather, our Dosha energies get disrupted. This leads to an imbalance between Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Through this podcast, Athreya Herbs aims to provide a balance between the Dosha energies in the winter season by suggesting winter health solutions and remedies.

The Vedic sages of Ayurveda were keen observers who noticed every small change that happened in their surroundings and reasoned why the change was taking place. They determined the outcome of this change on the human body & vegetation and contemplated the best ways to balance themselves. They documented all this information in the classical texts of Ayurveda called ‘Ritucharya’. Ritu means Seasons and Charya means Habits that enhance your adaptability to a specific season.

Travel Podcast

Hormonology with Gabrielle Lichterman

The holiday season is approaching which brings along travel possibilities for us to visit our families in different parts of the globe or simply plan a vacation for ourselves! While traveling is a thrilling experience, it disrupts your daily routine and often pulls you across time zones.

As you travel by airplane, train, or car, your body moves faster than nature intended it to. This change of time and environment aggravates the Vata dosha which governs movement and leaves your body vulnerable to dehydration, sleep challenges, dryness, bad digestion, restless thoughts, spaciness, and jet lag. Athreya Herbs offers a number of natural, Ayurvedic remedies to help you enjoy the journey and avoid any discomfort caused while traveling. Listen Here
