Vacha
<strong>Calamus root (Acorus calamus) is a major herb for the mind and meditation, and is highly revered by yogis.</strong> Ancient yogis and seers used this herb and it is said to stimulate the power of self-expression and to enhance intelligence. Calamus promotes circulation to the brain, sharpens memory, enhances awareness, and increases communication. <strong>The yogic name, Vacha, means “speech” and refers to its action on the fifth chakra and its propensity to help you speak from your highest consciousness.</strong> This herb is often combined with gotu kola, which is cooling and mild. The complementary energetics makes the combination suitable for a wide variety of people.

Vacha is very popular among my graduate students. When I teach about it in classes at Bastyr University, where I instruct future physicians and natural healing professionals, it always becomes popular within a small cadre of those in the know. For burned out medical students, especially cold, scattered air tattva types, finals week becomes a much easier proposition. Students may also use it for exam phobia.
