Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: A unique relationship exists between the 5 elements and the world around us. The food we take in through Ahara reacts differently with each dosha and our individual prakritis. This video discusses Dr. Vasant Lad's text regarding food and its relationship to the elements. In particular, it focuses on the practical application of Prithivi, the Earth element, and how certain Earth foods will affect each dosha. I found it particularly useful as a practitioner. I hope it offers some wisdom for your daily interaction with food. Namaste.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Om shanti Ayurveda enthusiasts. This is a fantastic video! It presents clear, concise descriptions of the doshas (Ayurvedic bodily energies) and the 5 elements as well as provides an excellent visual example of an ideal Ayurvedic day in sync with the Ayurvedic body clock. It is critical that we return to our roots in nature and begin to see our daily routine known as "dinacharya" as one that moves with the sun. Lissa Coffey wonderfully describes Ayurvedic tools to balance each dosha including the Ayurvedic body massage "abhyanga," yoga for your dosha and meditation. Enjoy!

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Hair loss (alopecia) and hair care is one of the most common health and beauty concerns. In addition to environmental toxins, it is frequently associated with high levels of stress and often accompanied by vitamin/mineral deficiencies. Ayurveda links hair loss to both Vata and Pitta doshas. Excessive physical, mental or emotional stress can increase the dryness and heat in our bodies and damage hair follicles.

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: Ayurveda believes that although the ailment of hair fall manifests under a number of factors like seasonal changes, heredity, lack of balanced daily diet etc, aggravated mental states of anger, worry and tension tend to precipitate the malady. Other reasons include presence of dandruff, under - nourished hair and pathogenic organism in some cases. The skin is the most exposed part of the body, making it vulnerable to pollution, seasonal changes, unsafe cosmetics, and stress. Ayurveda cites Pitta dosha as the root cause of the malady of hair fall. This video provides us with Ayurvedic solutions that will help you root out the cause of your hair problems. Namaste

Humans. Men and women. Some skinny, some plump. Some hyper, some cool minded, some with a fluctuating mindset. Some creative, some perfectionists, some easy going. Some have a tough time fighting digestive disorders, some crib about skin afflictions, while some sniff and sneeze around frequently.

Trust it sounds familiar as you may yourself bear some of these traits. It is worth wondering why individuals have diverse personalities...
