In Ayurveda, our health depends on our ability to fully metabolize what we ingest whether it’s physically, mentally, emotionally or spirituality. When our digestive fire (Agni) is strong and working efficiently, we are able to be full of energy and experience good immunity, mental clarity, and physical strength.
When that digestive fire is weakened through various factors such as food, lifestyle, stress, or the environment, we are left with an accumulation of undigested waste (ama) which literally weighs us down.
Do you feel heavy and weighed down physically, mentally, emotionally?
That is dense Kapha energy building up within us. (Winter and early Spring are Kapha time. What does this mean? You want to naturally slow down, hibernate, eat heavier and warmer foods, feel slightly more lazy, feel more naturally lethargic, etc…)
If we don’t cleanse out this build-up of Kapha energy before the warmer temperatures come around in late Spring, this Kapha build-up will show up in the forms of various imbalances — examples include: runny nose, allergies, lower immunity, increased lethargy, feeling run down, weight gain, among other imbalances.
In Ayurveda, Spring is one of the best times to cleanse and reset the digestive system (your internal Agni). Spring is the season of new life, rejuvenation, and of rebirth. Nature comes alive again after a period of rest and our bodies are ready to do the same.
This is a great time for letting go what does not serve you — with a gentle home cleanse. This cleanse would include changes to your diet, ensuring you are getting in your yoga (asana, pranayama, meditation), and daily journaling. Interested in learning more?
