supplements.

 
You know how I feel about supplements these days, I'm strongly against any type of pill.
But of course there's a difference between a manufactured pill and a pill containing natural substances, e.g Chlorella. Although, in any case I'm not fond of the idea of pill-supplementation for the rest of your life, I think they can be great boosters in certain times in your life. But I'd rather see people turning for a garlic clove to treat inflammatory pain than a pill.

Anyhow, maybe I'm getting a little overboard with the whole Ayurveda-thing right now, or I'm just childishly curious. But I came over this great site called Banyan Botanicals, I did their dosha and imbalanced doshas tests and took all of their advice in. One of the advices were to take Triphala with Blood Cleansing tablets for balance and healthy skin. Now, I don't want to jinx it but since starting to incorporating more Ayurveda* into my life I believe I see less redness and less purging in my face now after two weeks! (And I was on my PMS-period) But I definitely feel like it needs a push!

So, Banyan do international shipping but I don't really felt like finding out the shipping charges and then maybe taxes and duties would add later. Triphala was easy to find, it basically means Three Fruits (Amla, Haritaki, Bibhitaki) that is used to cleanse the whole system by regulating the bowels, and balance out all three doshas. I now know very well that it's been in my gut but also stress all this time and it has even affected my hormones  - which has finally gotten somewhat balanced yay!
Now, the Blood Cleansing tablets was a bit trickier to find. Banyan uses five ingredients and I tried finding something close to that including all those ingredients, and so I found Guduchi & Neem, which is supposed to help regulate the liver and eliminate toxins. I hope it's the same thing as a blood cleanse...

I've ordered these two jars from FeelUnique (cheapest) and I'm hoping they will give my system that push it needs.
I'm not gonna lie, both me and my boyfriend has had some kind of detox symptoms from the Ayurvedic food that seems so innocent but it has literally kicked our butts! (too much info maybe?)
I'm not gonna take these pills forever, I see it more as I'm going on a Detox for a month. And when the pills run out I will try to maintain balance just as I'm trying now: with whole foods, exercise, love and thankfulness.
I will come back to review them!

PS I was also curious to test the Neem & Sarsaparilla blend, good for treating eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea. Unfortunately right now they are not in stock, but for now I think I will concentrate on cleansing my gut and my blood.
PPS Are you also interested in these and other herbal formulas or anything else from FeelUnique and can't wait?

*When I speak of Ayurveda I don't only mean about eating for a certain dosha, but in general: how I do yoga to balance out Pitta, how I'm thankful for everything, how I treat myself and others. I basically try to be open, calm, forgiving and passionate over the daily things and thoughts that pass me by :)
