Ritucharya – Seasonal Regimen

Ritucharya - Seasonal Regimen

We are heading into Autumn, which according to Ayurveda is the most difficult time for us to maintain our health and to hold on to our energy. It’s also considered the worst time for travel and activity. ⠀

Agni (digestive fire) gets weaker, inflammation increases, and Ojas (immunity) decreases. ⠀

This is why @cookingwithom and and I are teaching the course ‘Agni & Ojas’ so that we can empower you and help you get through this transitional season called fall. ⠀

Light purification measures are encouraged, but full out detoxes and deep Panchakarma will only weaken and make you more susceptible to physical and mental imbalances. So I never recommend a full out detox in the fall – only gentle detoxes such as a weekly fast, or mono diet for a few days. ⠀

What is needed now is a gradual change in your routine to pacify the Vata dosha that is beginning to accumulate. ⠀

We do this with keeping a regular schedule, eating food that are warm, grounding, and nourishing, oiling our bodies (called abhyanga), putting oil in our nose (Nasya), and evening our ears!

Increase sour, salty, and pungent tastes to pacify Vata and prevent Ama (toxins) from building up. ⠀

Decrease the sweet, bitter, and astringent tastes since they decrease your agni (digestive fire).

And reach out for a personal Ayurvedic consultation to help you gain more clarity into your unique constitution and how to improve your Agni (digestion), & immune system.

Ayurveda transcends time itself, it’s a gift from Brahma to us, and will always be applicable and valuable to humanity 🌿
