Ayurveda


by Roshan Baskota

Rheumatoid arthritis is described as “Amavata” in Ayurveda. The word ‘Ama’  means undigested, toxic or unwholesome product, which is produced in the body due to weakening of digestive fire. This ‘Ama’ is then carried by vitiated ‘Vata’ and travels throughout the body and accumulates in the joints, which is the seat of ‘Kapha’ (one of the three bodily humors (tridosha) i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha). As this process continues, all the joints are gradually affected...

by Debby Andersen RYT, C. Ayu.

Today I’m wrapping up this 3-part series of articles on the doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) by exploring kapha dosha...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: In preparing for late winter and early spring, we begin to look closer at Kapha dosha and its accumulation over a stagnant time. Kapha dosha is anabolic and responsible for growth, lubrication and nourishment. With the elements of water and earth slowly coming into full bloom, examine your body, mind and spirit for heaviness, lethargy and excess. We can begin to clear Kapha dosha early if we notice the signs. Ayurvedic practitioner Debby Andersen points out some distinct symptoms to look for when identifying a Kapha imbalance. She offers a great guide to self-examination for Kapha dosha. Take some time to review your doshas today. Namaste.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Kitchari is sometimes thought of as the equivalent of "Ayurvedic Chicken Soup." Kitchari is classically a warm, light and nutrient-rich Vegetarian dish that nourishes the mind, body and spirit. There are numerous versions of kitchari that range from soupy to a drier rice medley. Ayurveda recommends using split yellow mung dal as the legume of choice since it is known to digest extremely well and to not produce gas. This video by JivaSattva clearly demonstrates the steps to making a delicious kitchari that includes many culinary spices with Ayurvedic healing properties. Try it at home today!

Ayurveda


from The Chopra Center

According to Ayurveda, sleep is the nursemaid to humanity. During deep, restful sleep, our body recovers from stress and we wake up feeling refreshed, clear-minded, and energized. Unfortunately, with the turbulence in people’s personal lives and in the world at large, many of us suffer from insomnia and a lack of adequate rest...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: We all struggle with obtaining a sound sleep on occasion. Ayurveda recognizes most sleep interruptions as a product of aggitated Vata. As we enter deeper into Vata season, getting a restful night's sleep may call for some Vata pacifying tips. A soothing evening routine, sleep mantra or essential oil massage may serve to sooth a Vata body and ease a Vata mind. Check out these 5 tips from The Chopra Center that are bound to send you into sweet slumber.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Hot, dry, pitta summer is here! As the sun and heat roll in, our skin is more susceptible to damage by tejas, so we must take steps to protect it. Abhyangha self-oiling massage is a wonderful way to nourish the skin during this season and a great method for relieving several bodily ailments. In Ayurvedic Practitioner Lisa Belisle's article "The Importance of Ayurvedic Oils," she discusses how beneficial herbal oils like sesame and sunflower can be to relieve skin conditions, insomia and muscle pain as well as help detoxify the body. Check out Lisa's article and then watch ATH's Abhyanga video to learn how to give yourself a daily massage. Namaste, Julie
