All these things affect our bodies and minds, leading to sluggishness and lethargy. Ayurveda has an all-inclusive, long-term approach to revitalizing energy. The balancing of the Tridoshas is done with diet, lifestyle changes, and Ayurvedic treatments like Panchakarma.


Beautiful Skin

These days, we are using so many commercial skincare products, and the harsh chemicals in them damage our skin. Once you understand your skin type, you can get the correct natural Ayurveda skin treatments that will promote healthy, beautiful skin.

Shirodhara Sydney

panchakarma Sydney

Shirodhara is a treatment done over the head especially over the forehead in which the medicated liquids are poured in a gentle stream over the forehead of an individual. This is carried out for a particular time and can be done in many sessions depending on the condition of the disease and diseased.

Shirodhara or Shiro Dhara consists of two words i.e., Shiro means Head and Dhara means pouring in a stream. Thus Shirodhara means pouring the liquid medicines in a stream over the head of an individual for a stipulated amount of time. It is usually associated or begins with a full-body herbal oil message but can also be individual.


Shirodhara is used for ages in a variety of treatment conditions like sinusitis, hair loss, greying of hair, allergic rhinitis, tinnitus, vertigo, insomnia, memory loss, and other neurological disorders. It is found helpful even in Meniere’s disease and certain skin diseases. But it is mostly preferred in conditions like stress and anxiety.


The Shirodhara – Ayurveda Massage in Sydney is basically named into various types depending on the liquid used as Ksheeradhara (medicated milk is used), Thakradhara (Buttermilk is used), Taildhara (oil is used) Kashyadhara (medicated decoction is used), and Jaladhara (water is used)


Individuals are made to sit comfortably on a chair and herbal oil massage is done over the head and then he/ she is made to lie down in a supine position on the Shirodhara table. The eyes of the individual are covered with cotton to prevent the entry of liquid into the eyes. From a particular distance, the liquid is made to flow from the pot which is placed over the forehead in an oscillatory way. The liquid is again collected, made warm, and poured again; this procedure lasts for around 60 to 90 minutes depending on the condition. The procedure in Ayur Healthcare is done under the guidance of the experienced and knowledgeable Panchkarama B.A.M.S, MD Practitioners to prevent any complications.

Shirodhara Sydney


Shirodhara normalizes the functions of hormones that regulate sleep and emotions by relaxing the hypothalamus in the brain. It also makes the individual strong and immune to physical and mental stress and thus prevent many life-inducing psychosomatic illnesses. Shirodhara works on the hypothalamus of the head which can be correlated to the roots of the trees. If the roots are healthy then the chances of the tree being healthy are more. The head controls the entire body mechanics and dynamics. The calming effect produced by Shirodhara can be correlated to the effect obtained with meditation.

Importance of Ayurvedic Medicine in Modern Life and Benefits

Importance of Ayurvedic Medicine in Modern Life and Benefits. Ayurveda is an ancient science of life, which existed in human societies before the applying of recent science to health. Ayurveda literally means, “Science of life”. AYU means life/life span and VEDA means science/ knowledge. It’s not just pathies where diseases are being cured. Ayurveda teaches everything, from healthy conception (bringing life into the world) to its proper upbringing and healthy living thereafter.


Ayurveda has two basic aims: First, to maintain the health of a healthy person, and second, to alleviate the disorders of the diseased person. So, Ayurveda has two different aims:

1) The preventive aspect and

2) The curative aspect.

The preventive aspect deals with the daily regimen, night regimen, and seasonal routine. These are important within the prevention of disease, and promotion of ideal health and the curative aspect means treatment of the diseased person with help of the various type of herds and minerals formulations as per the patient and diseased conditions, in severe condition purification therapy is very useful to cure the disease of its root causes. Ayurveda recommends several herbs and purification therapies as per the condition of the disease. We could consider Ayurveda as a preventive perspective instead of a curative one. and since the old saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure”. It’s imperative to remain a watch on our day to day unhealthy habits. Humans have outgrown themselves immensely from their primitive selves. we have a world at our fingertips, and other people are juggling across oceans within the blink of a watch. But what lacks here is ‘PEACE OF MIND’. it’d appear to be an unessential thing, but a peaceful mind can make the soul happy unlike the rest, and a healthy body keeps your mind at peace and that can be easily achieved by following a healthy diet and lifestyle.

The unique feature of Ayurveda is that it gives more importance to holistic treatment and disease will be treated from its root cause and it doesn’t re-occur.


Ayurveda is the first medicinal system that deals with the prevention of healthcare management through followed the various guidelines described in classical texts, such as Daily regimen-Daily routine schedule (Dincharya), night time regimen(Ratricharya) which helps to preventions of metabolic disease and lifestyle disease, and Ritucharya-seasonal regimen (guidelines for prevention from seasonal disorders due to environmental changes).


Ayurvedic treatment includes panchakarma therapy in  Sydney that is five purification therapies using purgatives or laxatives medication for pitta dosha (gastric and enzymes) related disorders, therapeutic vomiting for Kapha dosha (immunity) related disorder, medicated enema for Vata dosha (nervous system) related disorder, nasal administration of medicines for the disease of ENT, and blood purification for various skin disorders. Dietary and lifestyle interventions are initiated per the disease conditions and as per the Prakriti (physical and mental constitution) of the person. The dose of medication decided as per the digestive fire of the patient, the strength of the patient, the strength of the disease. but modern medicine advises deciding the dose of medication per weight or expanse of the body.

ayurveda Herbs

Ayurvedic medicine is becoming increasingly popular worldwide, with many chronic conditions responding well. While conventional medicine dominates many fields during this market, it doesn’t always outer form traditional ayurvedic approaches. Conventional medicine frequently relies on life long-lasting medication, on which patients come to depend. Most often many medicines have various dangerous side effects and withdrawal symptoms which can cause organ damage most commonly affected to the kidney and liver. In such situations, Ayurvedic herbal medicine is very effective and useful. Patients generally respond well to Ayurvedic treatments. Patients start their conventional medications after their diagnosis of any kind of disease, so Ayurvedic treatments are usually undergone with/or after conventional medical approaches.


Ayurveda has excellent effective medicine and therapy for many chronic diseases and also helps to improve patient’s symptoms by reducing their cortisone and analgesic medicine and improve their quality of life. Ayurveda seeks to normalize body functions with varied techniques including advice on food and activity, internal herbal preparations, purification treatments (Panchakarma), and surgical methods. For diagnosis, the Ayurvedic Practitioner at Ayur Healthcare will do disease analysis with deep and detailed examinations and physical and mental constitution of every individual for diagnosis of the disorder and planned the customized treatments for every patient as per their physical constitution. At Ayur Healthcare the practitioner won’t just focus on treatment or medicine to treat the illness, but also suggest a healthy diet, lifestyle, and daily regimen guidelines for the prevention from the disease to live a healthy life.

Ayurveda Insomnia Treatment Sydney

Sleep is one of the most important physiological factors for the health of humans which helps in recycling energy, vitality, and rejuvenation. Sleep is a natural phenomenon for the body and mind to give adequate rest. Insomnia has become the most common sleep disorder with a high prevalence rate.

Ayurvedic Treatment in Sydney for Respiratory Diseases

Breathe Easily

In our daily life, we often forget the most important factor of life is BREATH, life starts with the breath, and can’t survive for a minute without air.

According to many studies, it shows that more people die every year from respiratory issues than from car accidents. Air pollution affects our general health, especially in children, elderly people, and those with respiratory-related diseases.

What are the major causes of Respiratory disease?

◦ Air pollution

◦ Smoking tobacco

◦ Breathing in secondhand tobacco smoke

◦ Infection

◦ Radon,

◦ Asbestos, or other forms of air pollution.


Breathing polluted air will cause pollutants to get into our respiratory system and it will enter into our bloodstream and be carried to all of our internal organs including the brain. This will cause severe health-related issues such as Emphysema, Cardiovascular diseases, Chronic Bronchitis, more frequent or more severe asthma attacks, wheezing, coughing, and bronchial contraction, and even lung cancer and reduces the quality of life and lifespan. To increase the optimum level of energy received by nature, Proper breathing is very important, Also healthy breathing will also improve our blood circulation, immunity, and overall physical health.

How to Improve Breathing Air Quality in Indoors?

The air pollution indoors can be harmful as well. It could come from many sources. Passive cigarette smoke contains microparticles that can harm your lungs. Cooking gas ranges and other appliances also can cause harmful gases.

Pests and pets (such as cats, dogs, cockroaches, and mice) can shed substances, called allergens, that cause allergies. Dust and mold and dust mites also produce allergens. Even cleaning products like bleach, detergents, and other cleaning sprays can also cause harmful emulsions into the indoor air.

Over the last few years, researchers have found a lot about how our exposure to indoor air pollutants can contribute to many diseases. What precautions can we take? What prevention steps can help to reduce these exposures?

Many researchers are trying different ways to reduce harm from indoor air pollution. Use of air cleaners/air purifiers to improve the air quality especially for older people with conditions such as COPD. COPD is a condition that makes it hard to breathe and increases the risk of dangerous lung infections, like pneumonia. Much research has proven that improving air quality in indoor/home could also improve the health of kids with lung conditions.

The Outside Air

What we are gasping from the air is not in our control anymore. Today’s world’s atmospheric air is polluted with harmful gases like carbon monoxide (CO) from automobile emissions, fires, industrial processes, dust, and other impurities. Air pollution is one of the main causes of heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and acute respiratory infections in children. The respiratory system is mainly associated with the lungs, trachea, and nose. This is the organ for respiration. Respiration is gasping oxygenated air inside and exhaling carbonated air in the atmosphere. Oxygenated air mixed-up with blood and carried to each cell of our body.

Ayurvedic view of managing Respiratory diseases

According to Ayurveda, there are five elements that pervade the entire cosmos, the same with our bodies too. The elements are air, space, earth, water, and fire. Together they promote health and maintain the healthy balance of three doshas (Bodily Humor).

When these three doshas, turnout imbalance will result in many illnesses.

The Three Doshas in Ayurveda are-

• Vata (air and space)

• Pitta (fire and water)

• Kapha (earth and water)

Each body has a prime dosha, which is stronger than the other two. Individuals with strong pitta dosha have higher chances to get respiratory-related issues.

According to the Ayurvedic concept, treating respiratory disorders is focused on balancing doshas which includes daily exercises, following proper diet and lifestyle, Ayurvedic healing herbs, Panchakarma detox, and practicing yoga are also beneficial.

Ayurvedic Treatment Sydney


“This holistic system of healing is very safe because it uses natural herbal ingredients and as a result, it is totally harmless and at the same time highly beneficial, effective, and curative.”


The ancient Indian medical system, also known as Ayurveda, is based on ancient writings that rely on a “natural” and holistic approach to physical and mental health. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical systems and remains one of India’s traditional health care systems. The ayurvedic treatment combines herbs, diet, exercise, and lifestyle.


To make a diagnosis, the Ayurvedic practitioner at Ayur Healthcare will do disease analysis with a deep and detailed examination of each individual. This examination helps the Ayurvedic practitioner not only to diagnose the disorder but also to decide customized treatments for each patient.

At Ayur Healthcare the Ayurvedic practitioner will not just focus on treatment or medicine to heal the illness but also concentrates on the techniques that will strengthen the healthy elements inherent in the body, which will in turn help the individual to prevent diseases and to recover. Treatments and medicines are a vital part of this process, and it supports the body’s self-reparation.

According to Ayurveda, diseases are due to an imbalance of Vata, pitta, and Kapha dosha. Determining the individual’s predominant or aggravated dosha, and then identifying the root cause of a disease or imbalance of dosha, requires precise training. At Ayur Healthcare highly knowledgeable and well experienced Ayurvedic Practitioners will provide authentic Ayurveda treatment in Sydney.


Herbs and herbal formulas

This ancient practice is key to Ayurvedic medicine, which explains that the mode of action and effectiveness of every herb is determined by its virya (active principles), ras (taste), and vipak (post-digestive effect on the body). Thus the Ayurvedic administration of herbs is considered a precise science, requiring deep knowledge of plants and their effect on human physiology, biochemistry, and psychology.

Panchakarma detox at Ayur Healthcare

This complete detoxification regimen is thought to remove ama (toxin). The regimen includes massage, steam treatment, Vamana (induced vomiting), virechana (use of prescribed herbal and oil-based laxatives), and Basti (medicated enema), and Nasya (a nasal treatment). These treatments are followed by a strict dietary and herbal regimen, a rejuvenating therapy, and recommendations for daily routines.

Note: This invasive therapeutic procedure requires the supervision of a well-trained Ayurvedic practitioner.


How does it work?

The Ayurvedic diet sets guidelines for when, how, and what you should eat based on your predominant dosha, or body constitution type.

According to this diet, your dosha determines which foods you should eat to get the inner balance of dosha. And this also involves eating or restricting certain foods based on your dosha, or body type.

For example, the pitta dosha focuses on cooling, energizing foods, and limits spices, hot and fermented food, nuts, and seeds.

Meanwhile, the Vata dosha favors Lukewarm, moist, nourishing, and grounding foods while restricting dried fruits, bitter herbs, and raw veggies.

The Kapha dosha limits heavy and cold foods like nuts, seeds, and oils in favor of light and easy fruits, veggies, and legumes.

Red meat, artificial sweeteners, fermented food, preservatives, and processed food items are limited or restricted for all three doshas.

The Ayurvedic diet is an eating pattern focused on promoting balance within your body by following guidelines for your specific dosha, or body type.

Ayurvedic diet and nutrition practices are vital to healthy living and are important components of treatment, recovery, and disease management. Dietary practices are customized to each individual’s constitution, with six primary “tastes” forming the basis for Ayurveda Practitioner’s recommendations:

Sweet: promotes strength and nourishes all tissues

Sour: stimulates digestive power

Salty: maintains water-electrolyte balance

Pungent: improves digestion and absorption

Bitter: stimulates all other tastes

Astringent: helps in absorption

The Ayurvedic diet has specific guidelines for each dosha, but in general, Ayurveda encourages eating whole foods like grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, and legumes.

Ayurveda also recommends minimizes processed foods, which is unhealthy and often lack important vitamins, fibers, and minerals.

Eating higher amounts of processed foods may be associated with a higher risk of heart disease and cancer.

Thus, the Ayurvedic diet helps to prevent chronic disease and promote better health.

The Ayurvedic diet is a meal plan based on the principles of Ayurvedic medicine, a form of traditional medicine dating back thousands of years.


Netra Basti-Akshi Tarpan-Eye Treatment

India’s traditional kind of medicine, Ayurveda is one of all the oldest healing systems on earth, with its adherents claiming that it provides the key to maintaining health and happiness throughout life. Meaning ‘life knowledge’, Ayurveda is mentioned in Hindu texts dating back over 5000 years and, like yoga and meditation, is very popular around the world.

Ayurveda considers the human body is made up of nature’s five basic elements i.e Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. Each cell and molecule within the body have the composition formed out of those five basic elements. ‘Ayurveda is a holistic system that encompasses all aspects of the health of body, mind, and happiness.’ Ayurveda treats the root causative factors behind disease and imbalance of dosha and helps the body to heal itself.

According to Ayurvedic traditions, every human body has a unique combination of ‘doshas’ referred to as ‘Vata’, ‘pita’ and ‘Kapha’. These three functional energies help in designing the body frameworks both physically and mentally, saying that each individual is special in their own way. Your dosha corresponds to your physical and personality traits, but it’s not a case of “one size fits all”. Everyone encompasses a different combination of all three doshas, and customarily one or two are dominant.

Each dosha plays a very important role in our body’s physiology and it controls how our body works and eating right to maintain a healthy state of your dosha is very important.

Please remember as you are new to Ayurveda, you may find some of the recommendations difficult and not working as expected. Please feel free to ask us anything regarding your condition, treatment modalities, or doubts with relevant herbs. We are here to assist you. Finally, Ayurveda, the profound system of healthcare could be a wonderful journey to follow if you’re kind to yourself and provide enough time to regulate new routines.
Hope you will enjoy your Ayurveda journey at Ayur Healthcare.

Ayurveda Panchakarma in Sydney �

Relaxation Massage Ayurveda


Panchkarma is the purification therapies of Ayurveda. ‘Panchkarma’ is derived from two words ‘Panch’ meaning ‘five’ and ‘karma’ meaning ‘actions’ so literally translated, as a set of five systematic actions for purification of the body. It brings the aggravated doshas into balance and thus flushes out the accumulated ama (toxins) from the body. It uses normal modes of elimination like intestines, sweat glands, and the urinary tract.


Why shall I do Panchakarma?

Elimination is a natural instinct of the human body but over a period of time, with our sedentary lifestyle the dosha gets imbalanced and wastes are not effectively eliminated from the body. Wastes thus tend to stick to the minute channels of the body known as the ‘srotas’ which produce disease. Panchkarma is one of the most radical ways to cleanse the body and eliminate the disease-causing amas (toxins).


Panchkarma is one of the cornerstones in Ayurvedic management of the disease. Panchkarma gets into the root cause of the problem and thus corrects the Tridoshic imbalance in the body. Panchkarma not only helps in alleviating disease and also a very useful tool in maintaining excellent health. Ayurveda is advised to undergo regular Panchkarma treatment according to seasonal changes to clean the body thus improving the digestion leading to improvement in metabolic processes.

Panchakarma Treatment

The age-old science consists of basically two main types of treatment which are as follows:

Shaman Chikitsa (treatment), subdue the vitiated Doshas, because of which ailments may be produced. It is administered by using various herbs or herbo-mineral medicinal preparation.


However, if Doshas vitiate or reach beyond a particular level, leading to various endotoxins, which have a tendency to accumulate in a minute to minute channels of the body. These are beyond the scope of pacification and thus have to be eliminated or thrown out from the body. In such cases, the second type of treatment, Shodhan Chikitsa/ cleansing therapy, is very beneficial. It consists of the five main types of therapies, so-known as Panchkarma Chikitsa. Panchkarma has a special place in all the ancient Ayurvedic texts.

Body Massage

Our body has its own wisdom for cleaning out the impurities, which are produced by physiological functions. However, there are some situations when this wisdom becomes impaired and does not perform its function properly, Practitioner have to help to re-establish this natural mechanism. Otherwise, all the impurities start to accumulate in the body, which damages the functions of srotas, which is the first stage of the disease, and finally, the whole system becomes susceptible to severe illness. Panchkarma helps in eliminating all impurities from the body and thus cleaning srotas, to prevent forthcoming disease.


It is obvious that the natural instinct for elimination is not only in human beings but also in all living creatures. For example, a dog when restless from indigestion goes to a special type of grass plant and eats it. It produces vomiting and gets rid of his indigestion. There is a type of seabird who has a long beak and takes water from the ocean in his mouth and pushes into his rectum, which acts as a saltwater enema. An historical bronze statue of such a bird taking an enema with his long beak can be seen putting their tongues up their nose, which is a cleansing program like a Sneha nasya because the ptyalin in the mouth is equal substance to Sneha (oily substance).


Body cells, which are functioning for twenty-four hours to produce energy, naturally know to clean their waste products. But the blocked srotas are not able to send off the waste materials.


Doshas – Vata, pitta, and Kapha always tend to travel from their basic location in the intestine to the tissues and get stuck there when channels are blocked. Panchkarma eliminates the doshas, cleans the blockage and improves transportation by which dosha comes back to their original places to perform normal functions

Body Massage in Parramatta


In Panchkarma The shodhana therapy is performed stages wise starting from -Purvakarma (pre-treatment), Pradhan Karma (primary treatment), and Paschatkarma (post-treatment). The patient who intends to undergo all three stages.


Snehana (oleation/oil therapy) and Swedana (sudation) are the two Purvakarma procedures. Snehana (internal oleation and external oleation) loosens the ama (toxins) stuck in various sites of the body and Swedana dilates the channels to facilitate its movement towards the alimentary canal. The ama (toxins) that reaches the alimentary canal is eliminated during the Panchkarma (primary treatment).


Diet regimens, restricted daily bodily exertion, and consumption of health-promoting drugs, etc. come under the Paschat Karma (post-treatment).



Vaman (Emesis)

It is a process of elimination of toxins or wastes matters from the stomach and thoracic cavity or also called therapeutic vomiting is useful in Kapha dominant diseases like skin diseases (psoriasis, urticaria); bronchial asthma, etc.


Virechan (Purgation)

This eliminates the toxic or wastes matters from the stomach through the intestine. It also cures pitta or pitta-dominated diseases.


Basti (Enema)

The Ayurveda approach to the changing seasons: Embrace the Flow with Ayurveda

Body Massage

As the season changes, there are plenty of things that changes accordingly, which show a high impact on human health. Understanding the qualities of each of these seasons can help you reduce any adverse effects. Remember that your predominant dosha increases during the season it governs, it is important to follow the body’s natural inclination to respond to the seasons by adapting our diet and activities. Depending on the immunity power an individual has, seasonal care is critical to avoid any health problems. The Vata season begins in autumn and continues until early winter and The Kapha season begins in late winter and continues until early spring and the pitta season is from late spring until the end of summer.

Importance of Ayurveda for Health care

Ayurveda is an age-old procedure of curing many health problems and is proven as one of the best holistic approaches to health care. Since Ayurvedic medicine involves only natural therapies, the majority of people are responding to it positively. Ayurveda focuses mainly on annual cyclic self-care and provides the best suitable therapies and medicine accordingly. And today, with continued development in treatments, Ayurveda is challenging modern science.

Green Leafy Vegetables

Today, the consciousness towards health care is making people focus more on seasonal Ayurvedic care to maintain a healthy life with assured and straightforward treatment in a natural way. Ayurveda helps us in making simple changes in daily food intake and activities that best suit the present season.


We generally think of the seasons as spring, summer, fall, and winter, however, Ayurveda teaches us that it’s not the calendar but Nature that determines which dosha will be influenced:

 Vata season is fall/autumn and early winter

 Pitta season is summer

 Kapha season is late winter and spring

Due to the changes in the seasons, the doshas go through the cycle of accumulation, aggravation, and pacification and this can have a big impact on our body and mind due to the Ayurvedic principle of ‘like increases like and opposites balance’.

Therefore, each person needs to be aware of which season has the same qualities as their predominant dosha. For example, a person who has a high Vata constitution will have a tendency to go out of balance in the Vata season of fall and early winter. During this time, this individual needs to be focused and disciplined in their nutrition and lifestyle in order to stay in balance.

How Ayurveda works



The Vata season is considered to fall during what most of us would know as Autumn and early Winter. When the weather is getting dryer, colder, windy, and harsh. The Vata season does tend to bring around changes to our health. The skin will start to feel tight and dry. Since this season is associated with wind practice of Agni Sara every day is the important Ayurvedic Vata seasonal care. Oiling the body with warm sesame oil is the best Ayurvedic practice to stay healthy and balanced in the Vata season. Apart from this, there are many vata-specifying diet and lifestyle changes that one needs to follow.

 Eat at regular intervals and don’t over-eat or forget to eat. Relax and spend time with your food.

 Practice daily relaxation methods such as yoga and mindfulness. Yoga postures that are particularly suited to Vata types are those which are more grounding and strengthening such as the corpse and lotus pose. Just remember to keep yourself wrapped up and warm!

 Keep yourself moisturized with warming, unctuous oils such as sesame, emphasize foods that are warm, soupy, heavy, and oily and increase your intake of natural oils. This can be in the form of oils used in cooking, but also oils found in nut milk for example.

 Favor foods that are sweet, sour, or salty as these will help increase heat and moisture.

 Reduce foods that are characteristically cold and dry, but also foods that are very spicy as the extreme heat can often upset the sensitive Vata digestion.

 Avoid refined foods, stimulants, and processed foods as these take more energy to break down, using precious heat reserves.

Pitta is the season of hot summer composed of the fire element. It is said that when Pitta is balanced, one can stay energetic and joyful. So, to stay balanced with Pitta, it is always advisable in Ayurveda to Avoid foods that generate heat such as spicy, salty, and sour foods rather prefer foods with a sweet, bitter, and drying taste which are generally considered to be more cooling in their nature. In particular, the cooling qualities of cardamom, cilantro, coriander, fennel, and mint help to calm pitta’s heat.


Pitta types can become myopic and intense, so add a cooling breathing practice like sheetali pranayama to balance things out. Doing yoga poses like paschimotanasana and utthita parshvakonasana will dissipate the internal heat.


This season starts from the coldest part of winter into spring, and this season is dominated by earth and water elements. Kapha doshas control weight, growth, joints, and muscle strength. So, one needs to be very careful in maintaining Kapha because if it is imbalanced, then there are many health issues that one needs to suffer with.

Below are some general principles – aimed at reducing Kapha tendencies:

 Minimize cold, sweet, sour, salty or oily foods, and avoid cold drinks. Look for warm foods and drinks that are spicy, such as ginger, garlic, and onions; astringent, such as pulses and certain vegetables; and bitter, such as the dark leafy greens like kale and spinach. Try to minimize consumption of wheat and substitute with lighter grains such as quinoa, millet, and barley which are all Kapha reducing.

 Don’t sleep in too late (aim to be up before 7 am), and minimize daytime sleep which slows down metabolism, increasing Kapha.

 Exercise regularly to promote the movement of lymph, stimulate digestion, and enhance waste elimination. Exercising outdoors helps to reconnect with nature and promotes a healthy mind.

 Practice self-massage daily. In Ayurveda, a self-massage ritual known as ‘abhyanga’ can be performed every morning using warmed sesame oil, or our beautifully nourishing organic Sesame Oil. Abhyanga is a healing, soothing practice that nourishes your skin and stimulates waste elimination.

Agni, the universal principle of transformation that manifests as the digestive fire, transforming food into bodily tissue and waste. Ayurveda kindles the Agni of the body to digest toxins (ama) which have manifested due to internal or external stresses. Ama, the digestive impurities caused by eating hard-to-digest foods or by following unhealthy eating habits, compromises immunity, and health.
