Four Core Principles For Using Ayurvedic Herbs
Substances Eaten Breakdown To Nutrients and Effect The Body.
First Core Principle TASTE
The taste organ is the tongue. The tongue has nine thousand taste buds each of the six taste are picked up and sent to the brain.
There is recent research the has shown that there are taste receptors in organs throughout the body not just the tongue.
Tongue and Other Organs Have Openings That Connect With Brain. Taste is registered as any substance contacts the taste buds on the tongue triggering nerve impulses to the thalamus and the cortex where there are special taste centers.
Second Core Principle VIRYA
VIRYA The sanskrit term meaning "whether the food effects the stomach as ice cold or hot and sometimes super hot."
Third Core Principle Vipaka
That ayurvedic word(vipaka)is what happens to the food as it is turned into urine, feces or sweat. It turns into pungent, acid and sweet. For example sweet sweat indicates blood sugar imbalances.
Fourth Core Principle Prabhava
This means not all substances follow logic. For example honey would be expected to have a cooling (virya) effect on the stomach but it has a heating effect on the stomach.
