Healing with Himalayan Herbs

A recent intriguing study published by the “journal Annals of Internal Medicine” in China was carried out on 456,155 participants. It revealed that those who drank scalding hot tea, combined with excessive daily alcohol consumption increased their chances of being diagnosed with esophageal cancer by up to 5 times. With lifestyle diseases such as this one increasing in number and affecting millions of people around the world, many health enthusiasts are seeking solace in the Himalayas.

The Himalayas are secured firmly on the world map, as it is home to Mount Everest, the world’s largest mountain. The Himalayan region is also famous for allowing mankind to scale greater heights through its copious healing herbs that rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. It has become a popular destination for tourists looking for alternative medicine such as Ayurveda as it provides the perfect setting for holistic healing. However, some of the healing herbs found in the Himalayas are becoming rare as an increased number of people are discovering the health benefits, which is fueling demand. We have curated 5 of these wonder herbs just for you:

  • Jatamansi is popularly used as an essential oil in aromatherapy, as it has a beautiful aroma. It is also used as a hair tonic, to purify the blood, to improve brain function and to treat skin diseases. Consumption should be avoided during pregnancy or by people with high blood pressure and it should be only be administered to children under medical supervision.
  • Indian Ginseng can also be found in the Himalayas. It can grow in very cold climates and is very versatile. For instance, the leaves are used for burns and swellings, the root is used to treat insomnia and infertility, while the fruit is used as a tonic for health.
  • Kutki is another popular herb found in the Himalayas. It is said to aid liver function, flu, arthritic conditions, asthma and allergies. It is also taken by patients recovering from major sickness.
  • Himalayan Barberry is used to add colour and flavor to the rice consumed by locals. As it also contains antibacterial properties, it is used to treat fever and diarrhea. It is also said to treat diabetes and fight cancer. However it should not be ingested by pregnant women or women that are breast feeding as it could cause brain damage to infants.
  • Himalayan Burdock is used as a helpful remedy to overcome skin problems, digestive related illnesses and to slow down the aging process. The burdock root is also used to maintain blood pressure and a healthy immune system.

Today Himalayan healing herbs are packaged in different forms such as tablets, gels, capsules and creams, but we prefer ours in tea. That is why our Chamomile tea and the Lavender found in our Lavender white tea are sourced from the foothills of the Himalayan region.
