Releases, Lubricates, Calms & Detoxifies
Charaka CCF tea is the ultimate beverage for a long and healthy life. This tea is great not only for digestion but also for weight loss, mental clarity, and detoxification.

 

The process of purging the body of years of reactive toxins can be damaging to veins and arteries if hardened toxins are not softened and the channels lubricated first, but this is not the only use for this incredibly versatile healing tea. The CCF tea is used as part of the PanchaKarma healing therapy and may well be the tea for all ills.

 

 

The spices within Charaka are shown in studies to have the following properties: Lower Cholesterol, anti-candida, anti-microbial, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, constipation relieving, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-ageing, carminative, analgesic,
Antithrombotic, anti-tumor, eases abdominal pains, useful for irritable colon, bloating, heartburn, kidney ailments, as a laxative, leucorrhoea, liver pain, mouth ulcers and much more.

 

This has long been the purpose of this aromatic Charaka tea (aka CCF), used in Ayurvedic cleansing regimes for thousands of years, the seeds of cumin, fennel, coriander and cardamom when steeped in hot water and taken as a tea, these spices have the effect of lubricating and cleansing the channels and supporting the bowel, urinary system, kidneys, liver, heart and skin.

 

By clearing away the toxins, these herbs increase the alertness, wakefulness and intelligence of the kidneys, liver and other organs and channels.

The Ayurvedic Approach to Detoxification

If the person is also following a more intelligent diet and following the ayurvedic routine, all of these therapies together support all of the detoxification systems in the body so they become more and more powerful, more and more efficient and effective. This holistic approach results in the natural balance of the body’s detoxification systems, so that all of the detoxification organs become more alert, intelligent and capable of detoxifying the body on a day-to-day basis.

This is in contrast to fragmented detox treatments, in which one single organ such as the liver is flushed of toxins. The liver may become more intelligent by the clearing away of the toxins, but the problem is that toxins and sludge have not been cleansed from the other channels and purification systems of the body in a coordinated manner.

 

Thus toxins are going to accumulate quickly in the liver again, causing the person to feel the need to repeat the process soon afterwards. This type of fragmented treatment doesn’t strengthen the body’s natural overall ability to detoxify itself.

 

The combination of seeds is a great digestive aid as well as internally cleansing. There is a saying in Ayurveda that nothing bad can happen to you if drink enough of this tea. Freshly sliced ginger can also be added and boiled with the seeds to add a fire balancing digestive quality.

 

 

Coriander seeds – According to Ayurveda, coriander seeds support digestion, combat allergies and reduce bloating. It also supports the liver, one of the primary organs involved in detox and blood sugar balance.

  • Cools and calms the GI tract
  • Reduces heat or acid in the stomach
  • Decreases congestion
  • Calms the digestive system
  • Helps alleviate joint pain
  • Improves skin irritation or rashes

 

Cumin – Ayurveda theory says that there are three doshas – primary energies that govern our physiology. When our doshas are in balance, we experience health. Cumin is thought to have a balancing effect on all three doshas. Ayurveda teaches that cumin supports digestion by kindling the digestive fire ‘agni’. Western research has shown the cumin may stimulate digestive enzymes, which would improve nutrient assimilation.

  • Supports the pancreas, helps digest protein
  • Reduces gas, indigestion and cramps
  • May help absorb minerals from the intestines to prevent deficiency
  • Eliminates toxins and congestion from body (and mind)
  • cleanses and detoxify the body

 

Fennel seeds – In India, fennel seeds are often chewed after meals to support digestion. This herb has been traditionally used to stimulate digestive juices, reduce indigestion, prevent gas, and address constipation. Fennel seeds strengthen Agni (digestive fire) without aggravating Pitta, stopping cramping and dispelling flatulence. They can be taken roasted after meals, one teaspoon, by themselves or with rock salt… Fennel seeds are excellent for digestive weakness in children or in the elderly. They are calming to the nerves, their aroma acts upon the mind and promote mental alertness.

  • Relieves bloating, gas, and cramping
  • Calms the mind and improves mental clarity
  • Supports healthy menstrual flow

Coriander, cumin and fennel seeds are related plants with similar properties. The three are often used together for digestive disorders, mainly owing to high Pitta, and are used together in various formulations to promote the assimilation of the other herbs.

 

Cardamom also known as Elaichi, Elettaria cardamomum
This spice is commonly used in Indian cuisine, but it has also made its way into Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for mouth ulcers, digestive problems, and even depression. Cardamom is anti-skin cancer, reduces blood pressure,  enhances fibrinolysis and improves antioxidant status, increases sexual stamina and helps overcome impotence.

  • Alleviates symptoms of respiratory illnesses
  • Regularises your heart rate
  • High in elaichi is copper, iron and essential vitamins like riboflavin, vitamin C, niacin which reduces anaemia
  • Detoxifies the body and fight free radicals

Why is it called Charaka?

Charaka (Sanskrit Caraka) (ca. 200 BCE – 200 CE) was one of the principal contributors to the ancient art and science of Ayurveda, a system of medicine and lifestyle developed in Ancient India. He is famous for authoring the medical treatise, the Charaka Samhita.  Charaka has been identified as a native of Kashmir. He is well known as the “father of medicine” so we felt it was fitting to name the tea after him. You can read his book Charaka Samhita here.

 

According to Charaka’s translations, health and disease are not predetermined and life may be prolonged by human effort and attention to lifestyle. As per Indian heritage and Ayurvedic system, prevention of all types of diseases have a more prominent place than treatment, including restructuring of lifestyle to align with the course of nature and four seasons, which will guarantee complete wellness.

 

Charaka seems to have been an early proponent of “prevention is better than cure” doctrine. The following statement is attributed to Charaka:

 

A physician who fails to enter the body of a patient with the lamp of knowledge and understanding can never treat diseases. He should first study all the factors, including environment, which influence a patient’s disease, and then prescribe treatment. It is more important to prevent the occurrence of disease than to seek a cure.

 

Suggested Usage

Add 1 tspn/pp of Charaka to your teapot or diffuser.  Pour clean off-the-boil water into your teapot or cup.
Allow to steep for 3 to 5 mins, strain and drink as it is or sweeten with honey to your taste. If you need an infuser, we have a great one here which is a little man made of inert silicon.

Cautions: Fennel is shown to be a modest CYP3A4 inhibitor, an enzyme in the liver which detoxifies many drugs, so taking fennel along with some medications that are broken down by the liver can increase the effectiveness of some medications. Before taking fennel, talk to your healthcare provider if you are taking any medications that are changed by the liver.

Medications that might be affected include certain heart medications called some calcium channel blockers (diltiazem, nicardipine, verapamil), chemotherapeutic agents (etoposide, paclitaxel, vinblastine, vincristine, vindesine), antifungals (ketoconazole, itraconazole), glucocorticoids, alfentanil (Alfenta), cisapride (Propulsid),fentanyl (Sublimaze), lidocaine (Xylocaine), losartan (Cozaar), fexofenadine (Allegra), midazolam (Versed), and others. Taking fennel along with Tamoxifen might decrease the effectiveness of tamoxifen (Nolvadex). Do not take fennel if you are taking tamoxifen (Nolvadex).

Fennel might slow blood clotting. Taking fennel along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding.  Some medications that slow blood clotting include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix),dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin(Lovenox), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid),warfarin (Coumadin), and others.
