Spring is springing and so are allergies!
Nobody wants to hear this, but diet definitely does make a difference when you’re suffering from allergies.
Most people suffer from Kapha type (phlegm) of allergy symptoms – sinus congestion, sneezing, lung congestion, watery eyes, fatigue, lethargy, mental fogginess. So it’s important during allergy season, and even for several weeks prior, to start a Kapha reducing diet. This means cutting out or drastically reducing dairy products, wheat, fried foods, and cold or iced drinks. During this time you want to add warming spices like ginger, drying grains like rye and barley, and lots of fresh vegetables including leafy greens.

Winter is a great time of year for a cleanse. This is not just a cleanse, but one that also helps to rejuvenate the body and mind.
Seasonal cleansing rids our bodies of all sorts of toxins, pollutants, harsh chemicals, pesticides, and any other Ama (toxic residue) that our physical body has accumulated over the holiday period. Cleanses will help to purify and tone the internal organs, cells, and tissues of the body, flushing out impurities that aren’t serving us.
* Have you been feeling more sluggish and tired lately
* Is your energy level just not what it used to be
* After you eat, all you want to do is take a nap
* Is your thinking as clear and sharp as you’d like
* Do you have a heavy coating on your tongue
* Do you have foul body, breath and/or stool odor
* Are you experiencing indigestion and excessive flatulence
* Do you have body aches
* Is your mind foggy
An Ayurvedic cleanse focuses on resetting the digestive fire, allowing it to rest and strengthen. The detoxifying nature also supports the body’s own natural mechanisms to remove built up toxins from the body. It’s a bit like cleaning out the pipes when the drain gets clogged, or hopefully even before the drain gets clogged.
Included in cleanse:
Oil and Tridoshic Body Scrub
Email and/or phone support
30-minute follow up Ayurveda Consultation by phone

Beans tend to be hard, heavy, rough, dry and cooling through the lens of Ayurveda. They are best suited for balancing pitta and kapha, however they are very hard to digest for vata and/or those new to incorporating beans into their diet.
Vata: Best to eat in soup due to the added moisture and warmth.
If you choose to use dry beans vs pre-cooked canned beans you must pre-soak overnight and cook for a minimum of 1 hour.

As we move into the darkness of fall and being indoors we need to boost our immune systems and Chyavanprash is an excellent way to do it.
Chyavanprash is based on a traditional Ayurvedic herbal jam recipe made in a base of amalaki fruit, a natural source of antioxidants. This excellent rejuvenative nourishes and strengthens the body, providing energy and vitality.
Chyavanprash is an excellent method for daily herbal consumption due to its unique constituents of cane sugar, ghee, and honey. Proven effective over a thousand years of use, these nourishing tastes play the important role of “carriers” that allow the herbs to penetrate deep into the tissues. In a small daily dose (1 or 2 teaspoons), it makes for a tasty and very healthful treat.
This tridoshic formula stimulates metabolism and enkindles the digestive fire without aggravating pitta. It balances vata and kapha while strengthening the body against the effects of a stressful lifestyle. The energizing herbs bolster the immune system and help maintain health and well-being throughout the year.
