Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Ayurveda considers skin disease a multi-doshic disregulation of vata, pitta and kapha, whereby one dosha often dominates upon examination of signs and symptoms. There are n easy ways to resolve skin disorders, however the general Ayurvedic approach includes a combination of langhana (purification) and samana (balancing) the doshas, often though panchakarmic methods.

Also, Kumudini Shoba tells us about Ayurveda herbs and foods that help greatly to live healthy. Self understanding is an important concept emphasized by Ayurveda which is beautifully shared by the Ayurveda practitioner. Have a look...

There are energetic vibrations on many levels of the body, but there is a source of fundamental vital energy which ultimately connects the mind, body and spiritual consciousness. The doshas represent the gross bio-energies whose balance is critical for physical and mental health...


Editor’s Note from Sonica Krishan: This is another brilliant article by Susan Westfall wherein she focuses on the merits of prana, tejas and ojas, which are essential for the spiritual connection as well as maintaining self-awareness.

Vata, governed by the quality of air, is typically restless and commitmentphobic. Vata people find it hard to stay interested in one person, and not everyone can cope with their mood swings and indecisiveness. However, their creative and slightly mysterious personality makes them very attractive, too...


Editor’s Note from Sonica Krishan: In this interesting piece, the author Shubhra Krishan,tells us about the beautiful characteristic features in the three different dosha personalities viz. Vata, Pitta and Kapha types; what is their basic nature and how they would react to an external stimulus. No doubt, an avid understanding on this topic could help us simplify our lives as well as relationships! Worth reading.




Editor's Note from Sonica Krishan: There are particular foods and diet options for your particular dosha type! Ayurveda lays much emphasis on the right food intake. It has been specifically acknowledged that a dosha (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) tends to get aggravated mainly by undertaking Aahara with the properties similar to the respective doshas. This is because 'like increases like'. Hence, the vitiated or aggravated dosha can only be nullified by taking foods which mainly oppose that particular dosha in properties. Pleasew watch the video with Ayurveda Diet Chart specific for the 3 dosha types - Vata type, Pitta type and Kapha type.

Does the color of some rooms make you squeamish? Itchy? Antsy? Does the color of other rooms make you soft? Calm? Wonderfully wobbly and weak in the knees?


Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: We live in a technicolor world. But, we may not be aware of how much color truly affects us. For example, some colors like blue or white evoke a sense of serenity and calm, while firery colors like red or orange possibly enhance anger or rage. Ayurveda views color as an influential source that can affect our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Choosing colors that will benefit our doshic constitution can create significant energetic changes and enhance our overall health. Vatas respond best to grounding colors such as earthy tones but may also be creatively stimulated by yellows and greens. Firey Pitta can be managed with cool blues and Kaphas require vibrant, bright colors to motivate and keep them active. This interesting article on color and Ayurveda discusses the spectrum in more detail with a unique eco-friendly paint line developed specifically with the wisdom of Ayurveda. After reading it, I'm sure you'll never look at color the same way again. Namaste
