Seasonal Regimen For A Healthy Body

“Everything that exist in the external universe also appears in the internal cosmos of the human body”.

Natural cycles like seasons, day, waning, waxing are related with this elements. This is because these elements are dominant at particular times.

So in our daily life we should balance these elements with internal body and external climate.

The change from one season to another season is called Ritu Sandhi in ayurveda. It refers to the gap between seasons. This is a delicate time where many changes happen in our external and internal body. We should protect our body during this season by doing purification and pacification treatments, along with proper diet and lifestyle. Digestive system will be very sensitive during this period. Caryas/ Regimens of  previous rithu should be discontinued gradually & regimens of  coming rithu should be gradually adopted. Check out the best monsoon ayurveda treatments.

During Hemantha/ winter season due to the atmospheric cold the heat of the body is conserved inside by constriction, so during this season we should protect Jatharagni by having heavy and nourishing kind of food.
