Ayurvedic Wisdom: Bringing Balance to Imbalanced Pitta

Pitta is the dosha of heat. It is composed of fire (primarily) and water (secondarily). Since fire is hot, so is pitta! When pitta goes out of balance, symptoms of increased heat occur in the body, and these symptoms manifest physically, mentally and emotionally.

Ayurvedic Wisdom: Bringing Balance to Imbalanced Vata

Vata dosha is composed of the elements air and ether, and thus has the qualities which are associated with air and ether, namely: cold, dry, light and mobile. When we live out of harmony with the natural world, the doshas tend to go out of balance, which leads to disease. Typically this translates into increased dosha and a disturbance of the qualities associated with it.

Academic Notes: What does Ayurveda have to say about the Common Cold?

Lots of people are sniffling and sneezing and coughing right now, which is common at this time of year. In Ayurveda, the common cold is called pratysyaya. Traditionally, Ayurveda treats the unique set of symptoms associated with a cold as they are expressed within each individual, while bolstering ojas (immunity). Colds indicate a general weakening of ojas. They occur as a result of living out of harmony with our nature.
