Here is the recipe we discussed in our Hormones class this morning.
Takra helps to kindle digestive fire (agni) and being to reduce excess gunk (ama) in the gastrointestinal channel as well as the deeper tissue systems of the body. It helps to calm, ground, and reduce excess vata and deeply nourish the body. This is really, really nice for most digestive issues.
You can take this a half hour before each meal to kindle digestive fire and reduce ama buildup before eating or drink one time a day for extra nourishment.
|Use whole milk non homogenized yogurt. I use a 1/3 cup.|
|Mix 1 part yogurt with 4 parts cold water. Blend on HIGH for 10 to 30 seconds (I use a Ninja-type blender and blend for 60 seconds).|
Drink and enjoy.
Drink immediately or save for no more than 24 hours. Keep cool, but not COLD (think thermos), so as not to distress the GIT.
Happy Health. Next Class: Pranayama: Healing Yogic Breathwork for Spring and Summer!!
