Ayurveda is a timeless system of health, wisdom and longevity that developed in India more than 5000 years ago. Translated as “the science of life” or “the knowledge of living”, Ayurveda is the knowledge of all aspects of life – mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual. By addressing the body, mind and spirit through Ayurveda, we begin to have more clarity, thus the ability to make better choices, and live a healthier life.
At Nalini Ayurveda, we specialize in relieving anxiety, depression, mood swings, as well as physical ailments such as fatigue, heartburn, skin conditions, PMS, high blood pressure, insomnia, headaches, and constipation.
Ayurvedaʼs wisdom on the Fall Season
In Ayurveda, fall and early winter are known as “Vata season” because they are marked by some of the same qualities that characterize Vata dosha: cold, dry, light, clear, and moving. As long as these qualities are in balance, a person whose dosha is predominantly Vata will be healthy, creative, energetic and full of joy and enthusiasm. But when too much Vata accumulates in the body and mind, the imbalance may manifest as physical or emotional disorders, including insomnia, dry skin, arthritis, constipation, high blood pressure, anxiety, and depression.
There is an innate innocence in the concious Vata personality. A delicate, sensitive, and aware nature reveals the graceful Vata component of any type. ― Maya Tiwari
Below are a few simple tips to keep your Vata healthy and balanced this year:
• Keep to a regular routine with an early bedtime
• Eat more warm and gently cooked foods. Seasonal root veggies are particularly grounding
• Drink warm herbal teas or lemon water with honey
• Maintain your daily, yoga, meditation and exercise routine. Avoid more vigorous exercises.
• Practice self massage (abhyanga) daily with Vata Oil (available at Nalini Shelves)
• Keep the chilly winds and damp weather out by dressing warmly
Mantra Healing: If you are a Vata, your mantra is Ram (pronounced “Rahm”). Chant 108 times a day to boost your immune system and alleviate fear and anxiety.
