Ayurvedic Tips to Avoid Heat Exhaustion/Stroke

Heat exhaustion can happen when dehydration occurs after a long heat spell – especially when the humidity is high. Living in an urban area can add to the likelihood of it occurring because of the poor air quality.

People with high Pitta dosha need to be particularly vigilant about keeping their body cool. The main element in Pitta dosha is fire and so they already run hot. In order to avoid damaging their internal organs, Pittas should take special care to not get overheated.

To become aware of our shadow is to shed light on our earliest wounds and to give ourselves a chance for healing and transformation.

Are You Suffering from Adrenal Burnout? Here’s How to Treat It Naturally

Are You Suffering from Adrenal Burnout? Here’s How to Treat It Naturally

Unless we live in the remote hills far away from the modern world, it is highly likely that our adrenal glands are on over-load with a on-going threat of burn-out. The modern world is so ridiculously full of distractions, unnatural stimuli, mechanical background noises, gadgets, pollution, toxic foods, toxic body products, negative media, loud machinery, engines, pressure to make a living, people trying to sell us stuff, lack of community support, perpetual negative thoughts, unrelenting busy-ness and stress, stress, stress! Our bodies weren’t designed to handle that much stimulation, and as adaptable as human beings can be, it all creates an insane build up of stress that leads directly to adrenal burn-out. If the adrenal glands are overstimulated for a long period of time, they eventually become so depleted, that when we really need them, they stop working properly.

Less is More: Ayurveda and the Art of Moderation

Less is More: Ayurveda and the Art of Moderation

Yes, herbs are food, but just like certain foods have contraindications for people, so do herbs, and an easy-does-it approach always works best. Sometimes just a pinch of an herb is more than enough to do the trick.
