Dashamula: 10 Roots to Ground Vata

By on February 8, 2016

Dashamula is a traditional Ayurvedic formula for removing excess vata from the system. It is a nourishing muscle tonic that strengthens the body and calms the nerves.

Dashamula promotes healthy expectoration and respiration while supporting the proper function of the lungs and nervous system.

The formula is very grounding and helps direct the flow of vata energy in the body downward. A decoction of the whole herbs is used as an enema to eliminate natural toxins from the GI tract and to balance vata in the lower region of the body.

Dashamula literally means “ten roots,” referring to the traditional ingredients of the formula. Five of the plants are large trees and many of the roots are difficult to obtain sustainably. When necessary, other parts of the plants are used as effective substitutes to help ensure the protection of the species for future generations.
