Hair loss and greying can generally be an indicator of excess vata or pitta in the system. So you want to use things that are cooling and moisturizing. Here’s what I’m putting in my hair mask these days.

4. Add some shikaki, brahmi and neem

Cardamom is a digestive aid that improves the digestion of dairy products. It helps soothe the digestive system and relieve symptoms of digestive discomfort, such as bloating, gas, and indigestion caused by dairy.
Dairy can be difficult for some people to digest because it's a heavy and mucus-forming food. This can lead to the buildup of Ama, which is a toxic substance that can cause digestive issues. Cardamom helps break down Ama and improve the overall digestion of dairy.
Cardamom works by increasing the production of digestive enzymes, which are essential for breaking down food and absorbing nutrients. The essential oils in cardamom have antimicrobial and antispasmodic properties, which stops bacteria from growing and causing diseases, helps to reduce inflammation and soothes the digestive system.
