What are Carminative Spices? A carminative, also known as carminativum (plural carminativa), is a herb or preparation intended to either prevent formation of gas in the gastrointestinal tract or facilitate the expulsion of said gas, thereby combatting flatulence. Carminative spices move excess vata (air+ether) out from our body. In encouraging vata to flow, these spices help prevent stagnation in the gut allowing our digestive fire (agni) to kindle. Carminative spices support our digestive fire (agni) by balancing vata and allowing it to move smoothly. In-turn, kindling our digestive fire so food can be digested.
The use of complementary therapies continues to gain popularity, as people look for more natural methods of managing their health.
The health of our gut is essential in supporting the health of our mind and vice versa. The two are intertwined. When one is treated so is the other.
