Whether it's Vata, Pitta or Kapha that is elevated in your system, Ayurveda has a way of categorizing all foods so that you know which foods will send you more out of balance, or help to pacify your imbalance, and you'll learn about some of those classification in this article!
A huge part of Ayurveda is cleansing with the seasons. Seasonal cleansing helps one to get rid of residual energy from the season past. In fall, the main focus is to cleanse Pitta from the body which shows up as heat that is left over from summer. This can result in skin imbalances, aggravation or excess acidity in the digestive tract. Cleanses play a huge role in detoxing the system, removing lymph, and resetting digestion. Cleansing is also a great way to get back to healthy habits and synch up to the rhythms of nature. The following tips are not an extensive guide to cleansing but the hope is that they will help you get the most out of your cleanse and bring ease to your experience.
