by Dr. Harkiran Nehra

According to Ayurveda, menstruation (raja-pravrutti) is the natural flow of excess pitta in the form of menses (raja). Raja-nivrutti is the state of gradually diminished raja-pravrutti which ends as menopause...

 

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: Another nice article by author Dr Harkiran Nehra, wherein she describes Ayurveda insight of Menopause and tells us that the type of symptoms you have in menopause depends upon which bodily principle or dosha is "out of balance" in your mind/body system viz. Vata, Pitta or Kapha dominant. Please have a read of the wonderful article. Namaste.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: One of the things that makes Ayurveda so special is the ability to make food to balance our doshic constitutions. Spices and herbs along with dense and light foods all serve a purpose to keep vata, pitta and kapha in check. This lovely video demonstrates a tridoshic ayurvedic recipe for dal to keep all three energies happy. Enjoy!

by Sharada Hall

Are you attracted to people who are exactly like you or exactly the opposite?  Do you and your partner's different ways complement one another or are you like two peas in a pod?...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Relationships can be tough, especially those where constitutions may clash. Dr. Sharada Hall, DOM offers some first hand insight into how two people with opposite prakritis may benefit each other and complement one's weaknesses with their strengthes. This refreshing account on a Vata and Pitta/Kapha relationship demonstrates how understanding Ayurvedic principles and doshic energies can facilitate communication and help couples reach common ground in their relationships. Many thanks and blessings for this wisdom, Dr. Hall. Namaste

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 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

 

Ayurveda


by Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari

Ayurveda explains this through the concept of daily dosha cycles: vata, pitta ,and kapha are each at their peak during certain times of the day. 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.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The unique series of body treatments with herbal oils, pastes and scrubs is what makes Ayurveda one of the most powerful natural medicines known to date. According to Ayurvedic scholar Sushrata, Udvartana is one of a three-part treatment designed to detoxify, reduce fat, strengthen and tone the body. By appling dry herbs in a "scrub" form to the skin through massage, Udvartana stimulates blood and lymphatic stimulation, toxin elimination and absorption of herbal medicine. This video about Udartana by Ayurvedic Practitioner Lisa Belisle describes the process and what to expect from a treatment. Note that Udvartana is often best suited for kapha types and should not typically be used by pittas or vatas because of skin sensitivity. Namaste
