Local, State and Federal Governments Recommend ‘Social Distancing’ to decrease the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Massachusetts currently has the 4th highest # of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States. As of March 14th, there were five (confirmed or presumptive) cases in Essex County. The vast majority of those contracting the virus will have mild to moderate cold or flu-like symptoms.Some will have more serious illness. Minimizing spread of the virus and maintaining hand hygiene, other recommendations and healthy lifestyles are important. If you develop symptoms, call your primary care physician.
‘Social distancing’ means “remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible.” “Mass gatherings” is defined differently by different states. In the state of Massachusetts, gatherings of 250 or more are currently not recommended. In many instances. Many schools have closed and some businesses are having employees work from home whenever possible. Click on this link for more information on the importance of social distancing.
Choose your news from reliable sources, stop the rumors and avoid panic.
Below is More Information from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention:
As a means of preventing transmission of any respiratory infection, please practice the following activities:
- Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; Hand washing etiquette
- Frequently clean common touchpoint surfaces, including but not limited to electronics, door knobs, and countertops;
- Avoid sharing food utensils, containers, and other personal items;
- Distance yourself from someone who appears sick;
- Stay home from work if you are sick; and,
- Etiquette for Coughing and Sneezing
“Older people, especially those with underlying health issues and compromised immune systems are more at risk. Early data suggest older people are twice as likely to have serious COVID-19 illness. In addition, people of all ages, with or without disabilities, seem to be at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19 if they have serious chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease.”
Reducing exposure is especially important for people at higher risk of complications!
If you are at higher risk, CDC recommends that you:
- Stay at home as much as possible if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
- Make sure you have access to several weeks of medications and supplies in case you need to stay home for prolonged periods of time. CDC has great resources to help you plan.
More information from the CDC. Information is changing rapidly, even daily and in some instances even more frequently; Stay up-to-date and informed through reliable sources like the ones mentioned here and through your local town, city and state public officials.
Remember, kindness and patience go a long ways during times of crisis! Take good care of yourself, and one-another.
if you are healthy, you can still get out and take a walk at the beach to relieve stress. Just follow the recommended (6 feet) social distance. Enjoy exercise, healthy fresh air, sunshine, and the sound of the sea at the beach. Or spend some time in your yard and garden, take a walk on the boulevard or in the woods, and enjoy all the benefits from being out in nature.

It’s all about the Agni (digestive fire)?
In Ayurveda we say “you are not what you eat, you are what you digest”
At Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC we work with many clients whose agni is either too low or too high and once balanced are amazed at how well they feel.
Causes of weak Agni:
Eating the same foods
Drinking too much water with meals
Eating at irregular times
Staying up late
Not exercising enough
Eating out of accordance with one’s constitution
Resisting the urge to eat
Not sure if yours is low or high?

“Blockage is disease/Flow is health” 😀
Ayurvedically speaking our lunch should be made fresh and be the biggest meal of the day.
Having a big lunch is important because the sun, pitta energy (element of fire, energy of transformation!), and our agni (digestive fire), are all in alignment. This means big, lots o’ fire to digest big, lots o’ food! Our digestive fire is the strongest it will be all day long and it’s looking for a big meal to work on. If we wait to have our biggest meal at dinner, there is no fire left in nature or in us, so the food sits like a big blob in our bellies until the next day. Yuck!
Put the salad down…
“Blockage is disease/Flow is health” 😀
Ayurveda Wellness Healing loves the taste of cinnamon Tea especially on a cold, wet, dark day.
Through the lens of Ayurveda, cinnamon has been held as a natural healing agent that is used as a potent remedy against colds, stomach problems especially indigestion. It helps stop sugar cravings and is used to aid digestion and circulation. This ancient remedy is used to treat colds, congestion and fevers.

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
