Tips For Each Dosha
Vata Dosha Imbalance: Vata dosha imbalances requires greater rest, warmth, deeper nourishment, and regular routines. A vata pacifying diet should be followed that build ojas (stamina, endurance).
Pitta Dosha Imbalance: Pitta dosha imbalance requires time away from work and/or planning. Pitta dosha also benefits from staying cool. Follow a pitta pacifying diet that avoids hot spices. Regular routines are important too. These routines should include time to truly relax.
Kapha Dosha Imbalance: Kapha dosha imbalances requires more motion and less rest. Kapha dosha imbalance benefits from hot spices, exercise, less sleep and a kapha reducing diet (less food, lighter foods, more purifying).
Dual and Tridoshic Imbalances: Dual and Tri-dosha imbalances with moderate or severe symptoms are more difficult to manage and require greater supervision or support. If you have a dual or tridoshic imbalance with moderate or severe symptoms please consider a consultation with an Ayurvedic healthcare professional..
