In this video Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary explains the importance of restoring gut function for the health of the brain and the nervous system. The one herb for gut health she most often recommends is Triphala.
Triphala is an Ayurvedic formula that gently cleanses the colon. It is the dried powder of 3 fruits and is beneficial for all body types.
The wonder of Triphala is that it’s not only an herb for gut health. It also effects the health of the brain.
As a neurologist, most of my focus now because of my understanding of Ayurvedic medicine lies in understanding what is going on in the gut.
Early signs of disease are predominantly seen in the GI system. Triphala is Dr. Chaudhary’s go-to herb for gut health issues, addressing every single dosha or imbalance in the body.
Why Triphala herb for gut health?
Triphala has so many different effects on the GI tract.
- Triphala reduces inflammation in the GI tract.
- Triphala gets rid of toxins that accumulate in the colon, which assists in brain health.
- Triphala encourages the regrowth of many damaged nerves in the enteric nervous system.
- Triphala helps to restore gut function.
If I was stranded on a dessert island and I only had one herb that I would take with me, it would be Digestone.
