Ama-Reducing Digestive Lassi This delicious recipe from The Raj, in Fairfield, Iowa, helps dissolve and digest the ama - the toxins - in the heart and elsewhere, opening the srotas - the microcirculatory channels located throughout the body. Using select foods, flavors and eating times to help the body detox is one of the special skills of authentic Maharishi Ayurveda. When undigested toxins accumulate, they tend to do so in the heart. They come to us from the two premier Maharishi Ayurveda Panchakarma clinics in the United States - The Raj in Fairfield, Iowa and Lancaster Health Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts. The first recipe is a classic. It comes to us from Raj Vaidya Siju, the Ayurvedic expert formerly in-residence at The Raj. He recommends this delicious digestive lassi for the heart. Vaidya Siju's Digestive Lassi 3 parts water (room temperature) 1 part organic yogurt Pinch of salt to taste, ideally black salt* Several pinches of cumin powder 1/4-1/2 tsp. chopped cilantro or mint leaves *Black salt, also known as kala namak, is very effective as a digestive aid when used in lassi. In addition to helping digest ama (toxins), it also alleviates gas problems. This gourmet salt can be purchased at most Indian grocery stores or ordered through The Raj Online Herb Store or www.mapi.com.
