Guduchi: All in One Detox and Rejuvenation - for All! Nature loves to play! Through her incomparable creativity and imagination, she uses the basic set of creational elements that the vedic Shastras call “Guna” to bring forward hundreds of thousands of variations and possibilities. With her keen sense of beauty, and even humor, she unleashes her playfulness through colors, shapes, sounds, unfolding the wonders of creation! We may boast of our 21st century technological achievements and discoveries, but we are just barely getting to know the basics of life. Did you know that for every identified species on earth, there are 4 more that have yet to be discovered? What’s more, in this playful multiplicity, each one of Nature’s creations is as good as the other. Each one fulfills its own purpose in the bigger scheme of things, aiding in the maintenance and promulgation of the entire environment. None is better than the other. There are, however, some exceptions to the rule. Based on their internal make-up or Guna constitution, some species of animals or plants are more pro-life or evolution, while others may have slightly different counter-evolutionary agendas that operate through delay tactics! Some species are more userfriendly, so to speak, while others may cause unduly stress. So how do we know to classify all these based on their supportive or destructive nature? The knowledge is so vast, and the criteria so subtle and complex, some cannot even be discerned by our microscopes or fancy scanners. Luckily, as the ayurvedic story goes, a group of highly evolved humans who lived several thousands of years ago already took the time to do this for us.

we can now confirm some of their findings with our modern technology. Such for example is a very special plant that goes by the name of Guduchi (Tinospora Cordifolia). Amidst all the plants available to humans, Guduchi, was called “Amrita” - bestower of eternal life - by the ancient seers. A native climber of North and South India, it is now increasingly gaining favor as a medicinal herb amongst scientists. Long touted as a powerful and divine herb throughout the alternative history of Ayurvedic healing, modern research is coming to recognize its unprecedented benefits through a number of research studies. This plant has origins of mythical dimension. It is told in India’s most ancient epic tale of cosmogenesis, The Ramayana, that guduchi became a plant on earth when Lord Indra sprinkled amrit (nectar of immortality) from heaven. After the war with Ravana, Rama prayed to Indra that he bring back to life all the monkeys and bears that had fought by his side and died. Indra granted this wish and sprinkled the nectar from heaven. Wherever a drop landed on a dead monkey or bear, it came back to life. Wherever it landed on the earth, it became a guduchi plant. The healing properties of guduchi are nearly endless. It is the best rasayana (rejuvenative) known in Ayurveda. As Vaidya Mishra’s SVA lineage explains, it is the only plant that can bind both amavisha (internal toxins) and garavisha (external toxins) and reestablish the intelligence of the body by repairing local damage caused by the toxins. Vaidya Mishra explains that Guduchi is full of Soma (nature's cooling, nurturing lunar vibration) and helps to rebuild the dhatus (tissues) if/when they become low. Guduchi helps to clean the flame of the heart (vakshagni) so that it can handle any emotional challenges that may come its way.

Guduchi helps clean the liver without heating it. In fact, guduchi is able to detoxify the tissues all the way to shukra dhatu (the last tissue in the chain of transformation, and the most subtle tissue in the body, the reproductive tissue). You can learn in detail about these and many other properties of guduchi in a downloadable lecture by Vaidya Mishra. In this 31 minute talk, Vaidya translates word for word from the Sanskrit text Bhava Prakash about guduchi. You can put this and many other herb lectures on your iPod for just 99¢ here: Guduchi - Learn About The Most Divine Herb in Ayurveda. The audio file comes with an accompanying PDF with the text Vaidya Mishra is translating so you can follow along.

Cautionary Effects of Guduchi: •

Guduchi may lower blood sugar levels, therefore diabetic patients are advised to use it with caution under the supervision of the medical physician.

Avoid taking guduchi during pregnancy and breastfeeding

Large doses may cause nausea

Since it is considered a highly effective detoxifying herb, in particular for the liver, guduchi should be administered with proper preparation. Otherwise, improper use can lead to a detox crisis. 7

Cautions for Using Guduchi You have to be careful when using guduchi. It is a powerful herb that can easily cause a detox crisis if it is not used with care. This is especially true when using the tablets. The physical herb will have a direct effect on the more gross physical dimension of the body triggering an accelerated detox. Toxins that are being evacuated need proper transportation pathways leading out so as not to Disclaimer: The statements above have not been evaluated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

contaminate the physiology on their way out through toxic fumes or acidic residues. Once toxins are released in the body, there is no putting them back. Toxins travel through designated channels that have to be healthy to bear the load of the detox process, otherwise they may rupture those channels and flow over into neighboring organs, organ systems, tissues, causing further damage. If diet is not proper and if there is no preparation of the channels before using it, it can at best be ineffective and at worst do more harm than good. The body must be properly prepared to handle the detoxifying property of guduchi. There seems to be no relief for the modern liver. The sheer amount of toxins that the body has to deal with—generated both internally (emotional and digestive toxins) and externally (chemicals and EMF) is staggering. When a detoxifying herb like guduchi is given to someone with an overload of toxins in the liver, or an overload of toxins in other deep tissues of the body, it can draw them out very quickly. The old toxins begin to come out of the liver and the deep tissues, and it may be too much for the body to eliminate. There must not be any constipation in the body, which would prevent the toxins from getting out when they reach the colon. The channels in the body should be alkaline so that they can buffer the acidic toxins coming out. Also, the digestion must be strong enough to fully digest the crude herb found in these tablets. And the liver must be clean enough to metabolize the herb without killing the vibrational energy of the herb. Always use this herb under the direct supervision of a Shaka Vansya Ayurveda practitioner. Your practitioner may recommend the Guduchi Herbal Memory Nectar formulation because it is a safer way to deliver the properties of guduchi when the liver is full of toxins without causing a detox crisis.
