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 Sonica Krishan: Author Lissa Coffey shares with us another of her wonderful articles on Ayurveda wisdom. She conveys that Ayurveda teaches that good digestion leads to good health and poor digestion can bring disease. Each mind/body type digests differently. Whereas Vata types have erratic digestion, Pitta types would have strong digestion abilities, and yet for the kapha types digestion is generally slow. And thus it becomes rather necessary for us to understand your mind/body type and how it digests food when planning your meals. Please go through the article. Namaste
