Ayurvedic Medicine

Haritaki

Chebulic myrobalan (E), Harde (H), Hara (E):

Haritaki is described as the 'remover of diseases'. Hara is also the name of Lord Shiva, thus reflecting the sacred nature and exalted position of the plant but it literally means 'green' like the fruit. It is also 'abhaya- ' or 'fearless' of any disease. It is said to have originated when a drop of immortal nectar (amr. ta) fell from heaven to earth. It is considered to be the best herb for the digestive system and lungs.

Digestion Its sennosides treat constipation and the tannins treat diarrhoea; use a high dose (6g) for the former and low dose (2g) for the latter. It is salutary in digestive upset or dysentery caused by parasites or infection , inflammation of mucous membranes, flatulence and borborygmus. It increases the digestive fire and clears undigested residues (ama). As it descends apana vayu it treats the root cause of hiccups and piles. Haritaki's astringency and mucous membrane healing effects can benefit prolapse, ulcers, intestinal permeability and 'leaky gut syndrome'. Cholesterol It reduces lipid deposits in the blood and liver. Use with honey to help reduce cholesterol. Lungs Wet, kapha-type coughs are cleared. Haritaki astringes all leakages from the body. It sends accumulated vata downwards and helps to clear wheezing, weak voice and asthma. Eyes Used in all sorts of eye disorders: inflammation, conjunctivitis. Use as a wash. Mucous membranes Gargle in sore throat. Swill for stomatitis, gingivitis and periodontal disease; with cold water this encourages its astringent nature.
