Learn how clients helped their liver health with Ayurveda. 9 tips to support your healthy liver.
"A year ago, after some lab tests, I was told I had an 'abnormal liver'.
My mother died young from liver disease.
[But] Veena’s recommendations turned things around in less than six months, lab results in the 'normal' range.
This testifies to my longstanding mantra: In Veena I Trust."

"I had been chronically tired for a few months and I couldn’t figure out why or how to fix it.
I have also been feeling increased anxiety despite taking an SSRI for years.
The plan was easy to follow and I experienced almost immediate results. I felt like a different person. Life-long digestive issues disappeared. As a recovering alcoholic, the liver cleanse Veena suggested was effective and easy to do.
It felt good to take some tangible steps to support an organ that had taken such a beating for so many years. Veena’s Ayurveda approach has led to wonderfully positive changes in a short time. I look forward to continued Ayurveda care with Veena.

Symptoms of excess Pitta in the liver include: migraines and other headaches, hot flashes, red face, red, burning eyes, bloody noses, acne, irritability, anger, (short fuse, hot temper), inflammation, and heartburn.

Ayurveda’s Healing Trifecta: a Framework for a Balanced Life. Create a path to health and healing with Food as Medicine, herbs, and Ayurvedic lifestyle practices.
When we understand our unique pathway to a balanced life – we thrive. This concept is a central part of Ayurveda’s holistic approach to health and healing. But with 5,000 years of ancient wisdom to wrap your head around, getting started can be intimidating.
At Saumya Ayurveda, we provide clarity and direction by breaking your custom health plan into three foundational pillars: Food as Medicine, Ayurvedic herbs, and Ayurvedic lifestyle practices.
Take a closer look at our “Healing Trifecta” – and how we use the tools within these three pillars to create small shifts that radically transform your life.
Food is medicine and is the first pillar. Peruse our Pitta (and liver) recipes on the Saumya Blog and learn how to turn your food into medicine.
Love up your liver with Ayurveda healing trifecta. "stress can damage hepatic tissue both directly and indirectly." according to the National Institute of Health. Meditation reduces stress. The Mayo Clinic reports, "Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health."
There is a saying, "The mind is more in the body, than the body is in the mind." The Saumya 3 step meditation process shifts us from fight-flight-freeze mode, to rest-restore-relax mode. Give it a try for forty days and observe the changes. The more grounded and relaxed we are, the smoother life flows.
"The breath is the connection between the mind and body, so by training the breath, we become calm, focused, and grounded, we slow down the aging process by decreasing stress. These practices are so simple and easy to have as part of our daily life. We actually feel and look younger."

"Veena was able to help me regain my energy in just a few months and I’m feeling like my “young” self again! I love the food plan she designed for me, and all the supporting practices (am/pm routines, breathing techniques, herbs, and spice mixes) are so enjoyable to incorporate into my day. I highly recommend Saumya Ayurveda if you want to feel better and have more vitality.”
