Winter Strength and Immunity for All

Winter Strength and Immunity for All

by Kottakkal Support December 08, 2019

With the onset of cold weather, our ability to stay healthy is challenged. It’s especially true when the same ill-symptom occurs at the same time every year. Learning to recognize the early signals your body provides is key to preventing deeper health issues.  

Prevention is the primary goal of Ayurveda, and being aware of the early symptom signals your body provides is essential. At the beginning of winter, the cold drying effects of vata are felt, as winter progresses the deeper cold of kapha settles in. This transition challenges our strength and immunity and manifests as colds, cough, fever, headache, sinus congestion, constipation, indigestion, insomnia, itchy dry skin, and body pain and stiffness

SPRING IS KAPHA

SPRING IS KAPHA

by Kottakkal Support June 24, 2019

Our bodies are continually exposed to natural seasonal changes, which has a direct effect on how we feel. In nature kapha is called soma, it is all things cooling and nourishing. Things like the moon, forests, freshwater or plant nectar all represent kapha in our external environment. When the season is providing an abundance of cold, rainy, snowy weather there is greater potential for kapha vṛddhi (increased kapha). In our internal environment kapha performs both normal and abnormal opposing activities, such as sturdiness or looseness, nourishment or leanness, enthusiasm or laziness, potency or impotency, wisdom or ignorance, and many other opposing pairs.

by Kottakkal Support December 07, 2018

There tend to be SO many sweet and heavy foods during Christmas! From office parties to "friendsgiving" to time with family, it's hard not to over-indulge and accumulate Ama, the toxic waste-product of incomplete digestion.
