Ayurvedic medicated water

If you could drink a simple, but effective detox tea that clears your body of fake fat, which is really toxins in your lymphatic system, and literally strips centimetres and kilos from your body, would you be interested?

Ayurvedic medicated water, or CCF tea, made from coriander, cumin and fennel seeds has been used by Ayurvedic doctors and practitioners for thousands of years – and it’s an easy way to detoxify your body from the overload of toxins that are absorbed on a daily basis.

On our recent 28-Day Detox and Restoration Program we had clients drop 15cm from their waist and others lose 5kg in just one week. Drinking this tasty, slightly nutty, tea while doing a detox program, brings about powerful results.

Why it’s so good for you

CCF tea not only clears your body of toxins, it also detoxes the entire body. When you wash the dishes, do you use cold water? Probably not, it doesn’t clear the grease. That’s why when you’re washing the inside of your digestive system, you use hot water and in this case, the herbs work as the detergent.

Cumin, coriander and fennel are well-known digestive spices. When you mix the three herbs together, the tea stimulates the digestive system, supporting the body’s natural ability to breakdown, ama, known as toxins, or the raw, undigested and disease-causing substances that can accumulate in the body when foods or emotions are not fully processed, digested and assimilated.

The cumin acts like a steroid for your gut, breaking down inflammation and getting it to congeal together; the fennel is good for the small intestine, where you absorb your nutrients. It’s also excellent for taking toxins out of the small intestine. Coriander is one of the best herbs for supporting digestion without aggravating pitta (the element of fire). It kindles the digestive fire while simultaneously cooling and soothing the GI tract. It removes excess heat in the body making it useful in cooling pitta-related imbalances associated with menopause. It also supports proper function of the kidneys and healthy urination.

Other benefits

CCF tea doesn’t only eliminate toxins, support healthy digestion and control weight, it also balances oestrogen, increases mental clarity, overall well being and charges you with noticeable glow and vitality.One of the reasons we get cravings for certain foods (often sweets or carbs), is because we’re depleted of nutrients. Today we don’t have a problem with malabsorption because we’re not eating enough food, we have a problem with this because we’re eating too much food. This is one of the biggest causes of health problems in Western culture today.

How it’s made

Add 1 litre water to 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1 teaspoon of coriander and 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds and boil for 10 minutes on the stove, then place in a thermos and drink during the day. You can mix it up at home or buy it here.

These spices are also widely used in curry mixes and CCF tea is a staple in many Ayurvedic detoxes because it’s so powerful, easy to make and tasty to drink.
