Product Description

The Sanskrit name is lodhra, but Vaidya Mishra often calls this divine herb "alodhra" because he takes great pains to preserve the divine "a" intelligence of lodhra in all the products he sells. The part used is the bark of the symplocos racemosa tree.

Lodhra is a very divine herb for women's health. It is also very helpful for high pitta in the blood and other pitta disorders such as raktapitta (hemorrhaging), atisara (diarrhea), and shotha (inflammation), according to the ancient Ayurvedic text, Bhava Prakash.

The crude herb, sold here in small chunks, is ideal for use in herbal tea, along with other herbs recommended by your Shaka Vansya Ayurveda practitioner.

Lodhra Helps Give The Body Good Shape

The name lodhra, literally means "that which makes the body firm." It has been used to keep the body in shape for thousands of years, especially after childbirth.

The mother's body can sometimes hold onto excess weight after pregnancy, especially if there is mild inflammation in the deep tissues. Alodhra cools the inflammation and helps bring the body back into shape.

Even without pregnancy, alodhra can give good shape to the body, including making the cheeks look full, according to Vaidya Mishra.

In addition, it helps improve complexion. The skin's complexion is often affected by internal inflammation. By reducing inflammation (shotha), lodhra improves the skin.

Alodhra also improves complexion by connecting the mind to the divine energy within. The enlivenment of this inner spiritual quality gives a noticeable glow on the face.

The Sanskrit verses on lodhra from Bhava Prakash, describe it as shavaro (giving the power of attraction). The whole body and the skin become very attractive with the use of lodhra.

Lodhra Helps Heal Wounds

There are many herbs used since ancient times in Ayurveda to help speed up the healing process. Lodhra is especially helpful because it makes the body more alkaline. Healing is much more efficient in a neutral to alkaline environment.

This is another reason why lodhra is often given to women after childbirth. The internal wounds and traumas of giving birth can be healed more quickly with this herb.

High Pitta Can Be Pacified By Alodhra

When pitta builds up in the blood tissue (rakta dhatu) it makes the blood and the rest of the body very acidic. When the body is acidic, it is prone to inflammation and infection, hemorrhaging, fever and diarrhea.

Alodhra slows hemorrhaging and diarrhea because it enhances absorption (grahi). It reduces fever and inflammation by cooling the body and making it more alkaline.

It is even said to be good for the eyes (chakshushya), which are highly pitta organs.

Don't Use Alodhra If There Is Any Constipation

Because of the grahi (absorption enhancing) property of alodhra, it should not be used if there is any tendency towards constipation. It is a very powerful grahi herb, much more powerful than cumin, and should be used with caution.

If the herb is properly combined with other herbs, some of the constipating effects can be reduced. However, if you are taking this herb, it is important to be mindful of this property and to discontinue it if constipation begins.

Alodhra Herbal Memory Nectar allows you to use alodhra with less risk of constipation.

Always consult with your physician before using any herb or herbal product.

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 Powder

  • 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.
