Ayurvedic Tips to Stay Healthy Over The Autumn Transition

We are saying goodbye Pitta season and hello Vata season. We are transitioning from summer to autumn, and as we do this short ‘in between’ period is known as ‘rtu sandhi’ in Ayurveda. Our bodies respond to the atmospheric changes just as the rest of nature does and like our mind and body the seasons are influenced by the doshas.

This is a time when we are physically vulnerable as well as mentally and emotionally. Immunity is compromised as the environment gives limited support in processing of metabolic toxins. It’s a time we need to assist the body to adjust and so it’s a perfect time for cleansing the accumulation of excess pitta as well as boost our immunity against bacteria, allergens and viruses. Read the article for easy Ayurvedic tips to stay healthy during this seasonal transition.  Read more

What could be depleting your energy?

Is your energy low? Would you like more vitality, get-up-and-go, va-va-voom?

Energy is the life-force that runs through each of us, every one of our cells is a mini battery carrying energy throughout the body’s physical systems —the immune system, the respiratory system, the reproductive system; energy is information and the language our body speaks to us and each other in.

Einstein said ‘Everything Is Energy and That’s All There Is To It. Match the Frequency of the Reality You Want’ recognising that we are capable of influencing our energy with our thoughts, feelings and emotions. Read more

Luckily we have put together some basic tips to break the vicious cycle of sugar craving! Read More
