Moringa is Divine; Spring Detox FAQ plus Early Bird – your SV Ayurveda Newsletter March 4, 2021 – #8, Vol 11

Vaidya Mishra often spoke of divine plants or herbs, and he did not use the term just poetically. These are truly gifts of Mother Nature in the sense that they carry a perfect combination of balancing and rejuvenative properties. Moringa (sigru in Sanskrit) is one such gift. Not only do the ancient ayurvedic texts recommend Moringa, but there is ever growing medical evidence for the incredible nutritional, therapeutic and prophylactic properties of this ancient divine plant. 
But with Ayurveda, we always start with the basics and take them further. For example, we know to look deeper than nutritional content and consider just the taste of an ingredient. Taste actually carries properties and displays the action or potency of that item. So we know that the bitter taste for example is made from the space and air elements. And these elements counteract/balance the heavy and clogging properties of heavy starchy foods we may crave, specially in the winter/spring time. Adding foods and plants with the bitter taste, such as karela (Bitter Gourd) or Moringa, will help balance your body and mind. Moringa specially will be ideal to help with detox and rejuvenation. 

Sobhanjan or Sigru (Moringa Olifeira), is a vegetable famous all over India for its detoxifying as well as nurturing properties. All together there are 13 species and 400 extant names for it. In the SVA tradition, Vaidya Mishra uses only 2: a sweet variety and a bitter variety. The bitter variety is bitter in taste and carries more medicinal properties. We use the leaf of the bitter variety and pulverize it in our SVA products. 
If you have never done any Moringa before, you have to start with a low dose, use less frequently, and give your body the opportunity to adopt the new ingredient. This is why Vaidya Mishra made 2 preparations, one: Moringa Tea, which has the moringa leaves along with coriander powder. This tea is safe to start with 1/4 tsp in 16oz of water and sip slowly throughout the day. Do only once a day. 
The other product great for detox is the soup; however, it is much more detoxifying. You can start with 1/2 tsp per person (in 16oz water) and increase from there up to 2 tsp per person. if any detox occurs, even though starting slow, for example: if you experience diarrhea, itchiness, rash, stop using it and consult with your SVA expert. Alternately, you can use the Moringa drops – 1 drop per 12 oz of water – drink slowly throughout the day. This will introduce the “intelligence” of the Moringa molecule to your body and work silently but surely. Vaidya’s Moringa soap can be a delightful addition to your facial cleansing or body-wash routine. Or just use as a hand-soap. Soft, moisturizing, and with transdmeral delivery of Moringa to help support skin detox. 

So right now is the best time for you to adopt or bring Moringa back into your life – End of Winter and early Spring is the ideal time, because this is the time of year when you can start easing into detox mode – physically, mentally, and emotionally. This is the time when the season and cycles of Nature support letting go, opening up, starting anew. 
If you live in a cooler climate, start slow as your body’s srotas (physical channels) are not quite ready yet. If you live in moderate to warm climate you can start by adopting baby steps towards a spring cleanse and shifting slowly into adopting better daily routine.
