Green Tea

Green tea comes from the same shrub as black tea, but the leaves are processed differently, allowing them to retain their green color.

The health-promoting compounds in green tea are called polyphenols, of which epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is the most potent.
EGCG has anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve some of the flare-ups associated with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Green tea also seems to reduce inflammation-driven conditions like heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and even certain cancers.

To brew green tea, steep a tea bag or loose tea leaves in a tea infuser for five minutes.

While green tea is safe to consume for most people, it contains caffeine, which may negatively impact sleep in some people. Plus, drinking large amounts of this beverage may inhibit iron absorption.

In addition, compounds in green tea can interact with certain medications, including acetaminophen, codeine, verapamil, nadolol, tamoxifen, and bortezomib, so check with your healthcare provider — especially if you drink a lot of it.

Treating psoriasis through Ayurveda

PSORIASIS is a chronic and recurrent autoimmune and inflammatory disease.

The modern treatment options not only provide temporary relief but also have serious side effects. Thus, the chronic and recurring nature of the disease hampers one’s quality of life to a great extent.
However, Ayurvedic medicine can successfully manage and reverse psoriasis through healthy living in terms of proper nutrition, herbo-mineral preparations, lifestyle changes and yoga.

All skin diseases fall into the category of Kustha roga.

In classical Ayurvedic texts, Panchatikta ghruta has been indicated for treating a number of skin disorders. It has been widely used for psoriasis, eczema and ulcers.
Panchatikta ghruta shows great results in cases of inflammation within the body. It is traditionally indicated because of its distinctive quality in removing toxic build-up and purifying the circulatory system.

Some important recommendations for improving psoriasis:

- Improve your gut health: Many autoimmune conditions occur because of improper gut health. Ayurveda clearly advocates that no disease can occur without a deranged Agni (digestive fire). Agni is responsible for digestion at the level of the GIT (gut health) and metabolism at the levels of tissues. Therefore one should ensure one has a good amount of probiotics in one's diet.

- Manage your stress: Elevated stress levels directly influence cortisol, the stress hormone. Therefore, try to take better care of your body. Some other tips to manage stress include daily walks, acupressure, exercise, yoga, meditation, sufficient sleep etc.

- Follow a healthy and nutritious diet: Eliminate tea, coffee, sugar and refined carbohydrates and grains. Include green leafy vegetables such as kale, cabbage, spinach, Romaine, beet leaves etc.

- Avoid eating anything preserved or reheating food as this disrupts the digestive fire and leads to the accumulation of metabolic toxins in the gut. Also, try to include flax seeds in your diet. Vitamins D3 and K2 also help.

Sattvic diet is a diet based on foods in ayurvedic and yogic literature that contain the quality (guna) sattva In this system of dietary classification, foods that decrease the energy of the body are considered Tamasic, while those increase the energy of the body are considered Rajasic.

A sattvic diet is meant to include foods and eating habits that are "pure, essential, natural, vital, energy-containing, clean, conscious, true, honest. A sattvic diet can also exemplify the religious principle Ahimsa, the doctrine of non-violence, or not causing harm to other living things, which is one reason why yogis often follow a vegetarian diet.

A sattvic diet is a regimen that places emphasis on seasonal foods, fruits, dairy products, nuts, seeds, oils, ripe vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and non-meat based proteins. Some sattvic diet suggestions, such as its relative emphasis on dairy products, are controversial.

A sattvic diet is sometimes referred to as yogic diet or yoga diet in modern literature. In ancient and medieval era Yoga literature, the concept discussed is Mitahara, which literally means "moderation in eating".
