The world we live in supports our bodies through the fruit of the land, the air we breathe and the water which we are made of. Balance and rhythm of our bodily cycles are supported through the cycles of the seasons. How? Foods, spices and herbs are used to balance the elements, found within the body, to create balance within your external environment and the ability to withstand extreme elements, like snow storms or 100+ degree weather.
Each of the five elements are represented within a season. Cleansing the excesses of the previous season removes the risk of being carried into the new, which might create imbalance and illness.
Many factors, both internal and external, act constantly on us to disturb this balance, like stress, poor eating habits, climate change, exposure to toxicity & many more.
Ayurveda is sister science to yoga and an ancient health practice, with its origins in India, places emphasis on maintaining balance while focusing on prevention of dis-ease.
This ancient wellness system teaches that maintaining diet and lifestyle techniques that support your unique constitution (dosha), and seasonal cleansing are the keys to obtaining and maintaining overall good health.
Seasonal cleansing is one of the best ways to clear the body of these imbalances or excesses. For instance, if your prominent dosha is pitta, the season is summer, and you’ve been eating spicy hot foods you may be feeling excess heat somewhere in the body. Seasons, the type of food you eat daily, our emotions and lifestyle habits contribute to an excess of any given dosha. Proper elimination of these excesses can return the body to a more balanced state and promotes vitality and longevity of life. Remember, we are all made up of these three doshas to some degree, it’s the “excess” accumulation of these elements that creates imbalance for us all.
