Depending on where you live, you may think summer is never long enough (like in the Pacific Northwest), or that it’s always too long (like in the South). Regardless of your geographical location, I believe summer is the one and only season where Westerners live at the appropriate pace, one that is in sync with Nature...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Most people don't drink enough water on a daily basis, and become dehydrated, stiff and constipated. Even your social situations can become "dry" and lack that juiciness and excitement that we all long for. Nutritionist Melina Meza shares with us the importance of water from an Ayurvedic perspective.

Sluggishness, joint pain, low libido and memory loss are just some of the more alarming symptoms of hypothyroidism. This, now highly prevalent autoimmune condition where the body's defenses turn on the thyroid with destructive antibodies, causes a slow decline in metabolism, energy and eventually spirit.

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Hypothyroidism is a complex manifestation of pitta metabolic dysfunction. It challenges the body to regulate hormone levels while fighting a war against itself. After being diagnosed with Graves' Disease (hyperthyroidism) early in life and twenty years later experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism, it was natural for me to seek out what alternative Ayurvedic methods could be useful to my condition.

 

Ayurveda


 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Yoga is one of the most beneficial healing modalities. Each Ayurvedic dosha can be balanced via a unique yogic practice. For Pitta, soothing asanas and cooling pranayama will relax and quell rising fire and water elements. This Chopra Center video offers a beautiful demonstration of a Pitta soothing Yogic practice. Namaste.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Summer is full of fire and heat and can be irritating to the body. Since it is predominantly pitta season, we must take certain precautions to keep pitta dosha in balance. Pitta individuals will benefit from eating foods with sweet, bitter and astringent rasas (tastes); wearing clothes with cool blue and green colors and exerting minimal to moderate energy towards tasks. Practicing gentle, restorative yoga and including a short daily meditation will also help keep pitta in balance. This lovely video from the Chopra Center outlines steps to take for summer pitta season and suggests some essential oils that will keep pitta cool and under control. Enjoy. Namaste

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.

 

Ayurveda


 

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
