Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) has been considered an important healing plant in the Asian-Chinese region and in Ayurveda for thousands of years.
Fennel, medicinal plant of the year 2009 (University of Würzburg). ground fennel.
Fennel is equally effective for children and adults. The fennel can be used well for children, as it is particularly well suited due to its mild effect. In the genus Foeniculum, fennel is the only plant species within the umbelliferae family. Fennel is also popularly known as: Köppernickel, Enis, Fenikl, Fenkel, Finchel, Frauenfennel, Brotsamen.
The Doshas Vata and Pitta are lowered by fennel, as fennel also has cooling, oily properties. The digestive fire (Agni) is strengthened at the same time.
Fennel in Ayurveda cuisine
As an Ayurveda cook, I use fennel several times a week in chutneys, flatbreads, pickles, curries, legume dishes, potato dishes or the classic vegetable stew because it has a sweet taste. The dishes are easier to digest with fennel and, as already described, are also very suitable for children.
Fennel in every medicine chest
Natural fennel is a tried-and-tested home remedy for coughs, respiratory problems and flatulence and, in my opinion, belongs in every medicine chest or spice rack, along with other spices.
