Who Went and Put the Holidays Smack Dab in the Middle of Vata Season?

Who went and put the holidays smack dab in the middle of Vata Season? Anxiety, disorganization and depletion are all signs of unbalanced Vata dosha, according to Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old system of mind/body/spirit medicine. And fall/early winter is Vata Season, a time when anxiety is heightened and people with Vata in their constitution can become very depleted. Becoming familiar with our own constitution, as well as our family member’s, can help us all get through the holidays unscathed.

What’s All This Hype About Cleansing?

What’s All This Hype About Cleansing?

March/April and September/October are the months generally chosen for this type of deep cleansing, but it can be done at other times during the year, as well. I highly recommend looking into panchakarma treatment if you are dealing with serious health issues, especially those of a chronic nature.

But because cleansing for most of us is something we need to ease ourselves into, I want to focus today on sharing some easy tips that you can do yourself to help clean your system of toxins, give your digestion a rest, and reset your digestive fire.

Mother Nature knows that Kapha Season (late winter-early spring) is the best time for cleansing. She wisely provides us with the foods/herbs that naturally work to detoxify the body after a long winter of eating heavier, fattier and often sugar-laden foods.

The Earth has its own Wi-Fi that influences our bodily processes. We can tap into this frequency by going outside into nature to improve our overall mood and health. We can transform ourselves because our own personal biorhythms and energy of our nervous systems and bodies synchronize with the frequency of the Earth.
