Greetings. Eric Bakker back again. Naturopath
from New Zealand. Thanks for tuning in. We’re going to talk about Triphala today. Triphala
basically is a composition of three different herbs and its very popular in Ayurveda medicine.
I’m a huge fan of Ayurveda medicine, even though I don’t understand anything about it,
I think it’s wonderful. It’s a tradition that goes back a long, long time ago. If you look
at Vedic scriptures, potentially 10,000 to 20,000 years, probably more 40,000 years,
so a long, long time. Indian medicine in my mind is very powerful
when used. If you look at the Tridosha. The Tridosha I think they call it. You have to
look at Vata Kapha Pitta constitution. It’s a little bit like traditional Chinese medicine.
You need to understand the mindset and also how the Chinese or the Ayurveda doctor will
think. So it’s basically a very powerful functioning system of medicine that works on quite a high
level. I think Triphala is an excellent product to
use for digestion in general. So there are three different herbs that make it up and
they’ve got funny names. I’m just reading my computer screen. Haritaki, Bibhitaki, and
Amalaki. Two of these plants belong to the Terminalia family. I think that this mixture
in my mind in Indian is a little bit to Europe what the equivalent is of Swedish bitter,
so this is a bitter herb. This is a bitter formation, so it improves digestion and relieves
constipation. It increases uptake of nutrients into the body from the diet. It will improve
the stomach, the small intestine, the gall bladder, the liver and the colon, so it has
a very cleansing and gentle purgative and laxative effect on the whole gut.
Triphala can be used to maintain very good digestive tone on a long term basis. It can
also be used particularly effective at the beginning of a Candida diet as a cleanse and
purgator, so you can use this as part of what I call “the big clean up.” It’s like when
you buy property and the place has been trashed, you going to get in there, you’re going to
do a big cleanup. You’re going to tidy the whole garden up. You’re going to get rid of
all the junk. You’re going to get one of those skips in or dumpster or whatever you call
them, and you’re going to fill it up with crap. You’re going to get rid of it. That’s
the first stage. In your mind, that’s the bowel purge, that’s the cleanse. That’s what
Triphala can do. But Triphala can also be gentle, too. It can
be something that you’re going to do a final clean up with. So when you’re using a cloth
or a rag or a broom to sweep up stuff. You’ve done all the big dumping. Now you’re going
to do the polishing. Triphala can be used in smaller doses to do that as well. I totally
endorse Triphala. When you start this wonderful product, you need to go very slow to start
with. Don’t just jump right into a big cleanse. When I call it “the big clean up,” I don’t
mean the big stuff up. So don’t be stupid and jump right into it very quickly.
Gentle to start with, especially if you’ve had a life of eating McDonalds, drinking sodas,
drinking lots of beer all the time and you want to clean up your act, you need to just
start gently and gently and gradually work into a heavier cleanse and then “kapow” we
do the big cleanse. And then I’d also like you to check out my video on liver cleansing,
the gall bladder flush and the kidney cleanse. Check all those out, too. They’re an important
part of getting the body up to quite a high spec. Triphala certainly is a wonderful product
that I fully endorse. There you go. Do I like Triphala? Yes, I do.
I think it’s great. Don’t forget to click on the link below if you haven’t already got
