What are the Problem in Frequent Use Of Triphala
Although there are multiple benefits associated with Triphala most people take it for mainly constipation relief. Triphala balances the three Doshas of human body. Doshas are kinds of energy and each person has different combinations of these Doshas. There are three Doshas and when these are in balance we remain healthy. Due to our environment, food and lifestyle these doshas can go out of sync or become imbalanced. Triphala balances these doshas.
However when we take Triphala everyday our body become dependent on the healing ability of Triphala and its own healing and detoxification mechanism takes a backseat. Then after taking trihala for a few days when you stop taking the herb the body is not able to adjust to this and you can get constipated. The motions do not happen effortlessly as it should happen. Therefore it should not be taken everyday or too frequently.
How to Take Triphala Optimally and Get Maximum Benefits
As per our observations and personal experience you should take Triphala once a week. Doing this has many benefits. This creates a optimal balance of detoxification and healing. When you take this herb once a week the body remained well oiled, all the toxins accumulated over the week are washed away and you also do not develop the dependency on it. Since the digestive organs such as Liver and the intestines are cleaned up you would remain fresh and these organs work optimally and in an efficient manner.
Taking it once a week help the body in developing immunity and keeps you healthy and fresh. If the gap is too long then also it is not good idea since the toxins are not washed away or eliminated from your body for too long. That is why I would suggest that you take this herb once a week to maintain the ideal time difference and get the best benefits out of this wonderful herb.
