Yes, there are more herbs than food ingredients... this is a spice blend that I use to offset the naturally acidic and inflammatory effects of eating tomato sauce. Do not stress if you don't have all of these herbs. Add what you can. Scroll to the bottom of the page for ingredient modifications specific to your dosha.
