Coriander is a delicious spice with many healing benefits. It makes a great household remedy for pitta disorders, in particular those which affect the digestive or urinary systems. Those with a pitta nature or imbalance tend to have overheated digestion, such as heartburn and acid indigestion, and most digestive spices are too heating for pitta. But not coriander!
Many herbalists would say that if you only keep one medicinal herb on hand, it should be ginger. Ginger is considered “the universal medicine” because it offers benefits for everyone and most every disease, especially vata disorders.
Are you including turmeric in your daily diet? If not, you certainly should be! Turmeric has a long list of health benefits. It targets all tissues and many bodily systems including the digestive, circulatory, respiratory and female reproductive systems.
