Product Description

The bark of the symplocos racemosa tree is called lodhra in Sanskrit, and has been used for millennia to improve women's health and to improve high pitta disorders such as hemorrhaging (raktapitta), diarrhea (atisara), fever (jwara) and inflammation (shotha).

Lodhra is a very divine tree, like arjuna and ashoka. As such, it is full of the divine vibration of pure consciousness, which Vaidya Mishra calls the "a" value. "A" is the most open sound in the Sanskrit alphabet and it represents pure, divine consciousness.

Because of lodhra's capacity to reflect pure consciousness in a very complete way, and because Vaidya Mishra is careful to preserve this quality in his products, he often calls lodhra by the name "alodhra" to emphasize the presence of the "a" value in the herb.

Alodhra powder is a practical way to use the crude herb in herbal tea mixtures, or in oils for massage.

Alodhra For Women's Health

Vaidya Mishra says that alodhra is the most divine bark for women's health. There are many reasons for this claim.

First, alodhra is a divine herb, which makes it very useful for keeping the mind connected to the light of the soul.

Secondly, alodhra makes you look good. The Sanskrit verses from Bhava Prakash state that lodhra is shavaro (giving the power of attraction). It accomplishes this by making the body firmer (the literal translation of the word lodhra is "that which makes the body firmer").

It also increases the power of attraction by improving complexion. Complexion is affected by excess pitta in the blood and inflammation in the tissues. Alodhra reduces pitta in the blood as well as inflammation in the tissues. The result is a clearer, more beautiful skin.

In addition, alodhra improves the radiance of the skin by connecting the mind to the light of the divine energy within. Only the divine herbs can accomplish this.

Alodhra is very helpful in postpartum care. Because it reduces inflammation and cleans the blood, alodhra is very helpful in reducing any extra weight of the mother due to deep tissue inflammation.

Alodhra is also very helpful in making the body more alkaline. The body heals more quickly when its tissues are less acidic. As as result, alodhra helps the mother to heal more easily after the trauma of giving birth.

Alodhra For Reducing High Pitta Problems

High pitta, especially in the blood (rakta dhatu), can cause a number of symptoms, according to Ayurveda. It can give diarrhea (atisara), fever (jwara), inflammation (shotha), nosebleeds and other hemorrhages (in extreme cases this occurs all over the body in a disease called raktapitta).

Ayurveda does not treat symptoms (linga) without first considering the etiological factors (hetu). There may be many causes of each of the symptoms listed above, but when high pitta is the cause then alodhra can be helpful.

In the case of diarrhea and hemorrhaging, alodhra is used because of its strong grahi (absorption enhancing) property. This acts to slow diarrhrea and reduce bleeding. Though other grahi herbs could be used for this purpose, the cooling (sheeta) property of lodhra makes it very appropriate to use when high pitta is the cause.

The cooling property of lodhra is also helpful for reducing inflammation and fever.

Two Cautions When Using Alodhra

While this herb is valuable in many ways, it should be used with caution if there is any tendency towards constipation, especially when it is used in crude form like this powder. Alodhra Herbal Memory Nectar is an excellent way to enjoy the benefits of alodhra with much less risk of constipation.

Another caution for using the crude herb is that digestion and metabolism must be strong enough to process the herb if it is to reach the tissues where it is needed. In the case of high pitta in the body, the likelihood of low digestive fire (low agni) is very strong. If this is the case, Vaidya Mishra recommends using Alodhra Herbal Memory Nectar.

Alodhra In Our Herbal Products

Alodhra Herbal Memory Nectar

  • Contains the vibrational energy and subtlest essence of alodhra which can quickly travel through the body to begin reducing inflammation, diarrhea, and hemorrhaging due to high pitta.
  • Bypasses the liver, in case of high toxic load in the liver, thereby protecting the divine vibration from corruption by toxins.
  • Is the most effective way to use alodhra when digestion is low, as is often the case in high-pitta disorders.
  • Should be added to 1 to 2 liters of cool, neutral pH spring water and sipped throughout the day.

Alodhra Bark

  • Should be used as a part of a herbal water, or other recipe prescribed by your Shaka Vansya Ayurveda practitioner.
  • Contains more of the physical properties of the herb as compared to Alodhra Herbal Memory Nectar. This makes the cooling, light and astringent properties more prevalent than in the herbal memory nectar.
  • Requires a relatively healthy digestion and toxin-free liver to be effective.

Alodhra is used as a secondary ingredient in the following products.
