Autumn has arrived and winter will be here soon.
This time of year you should be cautious to not provoke Vata Dosha! Of all three Doshas, Vata is the driving force behind literally every dynamic process taking place in our bodies. But it is also the most vulnerable Dosha of them all, and creates the most problems when out of balance.
An irregular and sedentary lifestyle and dry, cold and windy weather, typical for the autumn and winter months, are some of the main seasonal causes of Vata imbalance.
The first aim of Ayurveda is the maintainance of health. To prevent ilness it suggests lifestyle modifications and the use of herbal combinations. I have compiled here 10 tips to maintain your optimum Vata physiology!
Indulge yourself in a jacuzzi, sauna or warm bath. These modalities are similar to various swedan procedures used to balance Vata. They provide relief from psychological and physical stress. However, if you tend to have excess Pitta, limit your time in a jacuzzi or sauna to fifteen minutes.
In a nutshell: a balanced diet, a good night’s sleep, moderate exercise and following your natural urges will keep you healthy, happy, strong and balanced this season!

Consider the consistency of melted cheese and imagine your gut trying to break it down - not an easy task. Several modern studies point to the many health risks of regular cheese consumption, yet it is as ubiquitous in our cooking as salt and pepper. So, imagine my happiness when I discovered this recipe! It is so simple that even I was surprised at its tastiness; especially when I added my own flavors to the mix. Hopefully this will offer a tasty alternative to cheese for you as well!
