In Ayurveda the Balance of the Doshas is the key to perfect health

 

When Vata goes out of balance due to life's excessive stress, our activity goes out of control. The mind becomes  fast leading to anxiety and insomnia. We tend to skip meals, which makes our digestion weak and irregular and we end up loosing weight without us wanting to do so. When we realize these symptoms and we notice that Vata has gone out of balance, we must take time to meditate, slow down a bit, make sure we don't skip meals and try to go to sleep early. By doing this and keeping a regular routine, we help to pacify Vata so it does not get carried away into the other doshas. 

 

 

Vata

 

Balancing Vata

 

 

  • As Vata is dry, cold, irregular, always changing and light, in order to keep it balanced we should follow a good routine that promotes this, the best things we can do are, going to bed before 10pm, eating hot freshly cooked meals at regular times, keep warm, and bring consistency and stability to your life..

  • We must try  to keep warm wearing proper clothes for the cold seasons, and specially keep  your head covered in such weather conditions. 

  • When we do self massage (abhyanga) in the morning with warm oils like sesame oil, coconut oil or any herbalised oil prescribed by a vaidya , we help balancing Vata and we feel great.

  • Choose relaxing and calming music.

  • Vata individuals have periods of lots of energy but also they get tired easily. The best exercises for people with Vata body type are exercises that improve flexibility and balance. We should be careful not to do too much and go over half of the limit of our own energy. The best exercises are yoga, walking swiming, dancing and short hikes.

Pitta

 

Balancing Pitta

  •  Pitta is hot, sharp and penetrating. In order to keep Pitta in balance we need to choose things that are cooling and sweet.

  •  We must be careful not to create unnecessary stress and pressures in our life, and we must balance activity with rest, allowing us to have free time daily.

  • We must never wait until we are too hungry or skip meals; and always choose to eat sweet, bitter and astringent food as well as cooling like sweet fruits and cucumbers.

  • We must spend time with nature taking walks in the forest or along lakes and rivers. It is good to keep plants in our home as well as fresh flowers.

 Kapha

 

Balancing Kapha

 

  •  Kapha is cold, sticky and heavy and for this reason to balance Kapha we need to bring stimulation and new experiences in the form of new surroundings, new  sounds and movement.

  •  Kapha people should avoid sleeping during the day and to keep balance we should have a good routine and wake up before 6am.

  •  Kapha individuals are specially sensitive to damp and cold weather conditions and staying warm is very important, as it is avoiding humid conditions.
