Hemant Ritucharya – Selfcare for Winter Season

by Vaidya Vishwanath November 23, 2022

The main goal of Ayurveda is to maintain the health of a person who is already healthy and to correct any imbalance for those who are unhealthy. This can be achieved by following Dinacharya (personal daily self-care regimen) and Ritucharya (personal seasonal self-care regimen). Each person’s dinacharya and ritucharya is personalized based on their prakriti (constitution), vikriti (imbalanced doshas), bala (strength), and agni (digestive power). By following both dinacharya and ritucharya the natural movement of the doshas is brought into balance and the person can remain free from diseases.
