1 out of every 3 people experiences some sort of digestive unease on a daily basis. It ranges from an unpleasant heavy feeling, to bloating, to heartburn, to acid reflux, pain, gas, constipation, or diarrhea, burping or distension. None of these are pleasant...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: In Ayurveda, a happy belly means a long, healthy life. Keeping our digestive fire, agni, strong throughout the year will help with immunity, rejuvenation and detoxification. Agni is one of the most important concepts in Ayurveda. If agni is high, then it can properly digest food, emotions and negative energy to keep the 3 doshas in check. Use your food as medicine to kindle agni. Focus on these carminitive spices and how they balance your doshas for strong agni and a well-rounded constitution. Namaste

He calls turmeric as a Super Herb ! Turmeric is surely on of the few Ayurveda herbs which as per Ayurveda, turmeric is believed to be a destroyer of aggravation in all the three basic humors of the body viz. vatta, pitta and kapha.

As always, we encourage you to read further about Ayurveda and contact a practitioner if you notice any of these pitta imbalance signs. Namaste

 

Ayurveda


by Lissa Coffey

When you are a double-dosha type, two doshas are presenting themselves strongly in your constitution. This means that you can have qualities of each of the two doshas.

Ayurveda


by Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari

Ayurveda divides the 24-hour day into the of following time periods (they are approximate because they depend on the season and geographic location): The Daily Lifestyle Regimens are based on this concept...

 

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: This is an interesting article shared with us by Dr Ram Mani Bhandari, where the author tells us how Ayurveda wisdom of Dosha philosophy helps to make us aware about whether our dosha imbalance relates to the time of day. For example if you find it difficult to say awake in the morning without cups of coffee, it could be because you have been rising late-during the lethargic kapha time.
