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.

How to Be Healthy According to Ayurveda? Create Healthy Routines!

What we do on a daily, consistent basis is the greatest determiner of our health. According to Ayurveda, there is nothing more important to our health and overall well-being than our daily living practices. If we live a balanced life in which we are kind to ourselves and adhere to the rhythms of nature, we stand the greatest chance of being healthy. When we abuse our bodies and minds, either intentionally or unintentionally, ill health often results.

Academic Notes: Ayurveda and Understanding the Tongue

Excessive cracks on the tongue is an indication that vata dosha is vitiated, specifically the dry quality. The more cracks, the more significant the vata vitiation and the more oil and nourishing substances the patient will need to re-establish balance. Daily abhyanga with vata-pacifying oils such as sesame and almond is highly beneficial, along with the internal consumption of high quality, vata-balancing oils such as ghee and sesame oil.
