ayurveda

You’re looking for something to help you feel alive again. Energized. Full of vibrancy. And maybe even some vinegar.

But right now? You’re plagued by sleepless nights, fatigue, poor digestion and frequent colds. Sniffle, cough, sneeze.

And while the daily stresses of everyday life do take their toll, causing unwelcome toxins in your body to accumulate and disrupt your body’s natural processes, they aren’t the main culprit.

A tricky imbalance is.

You need to get your body back in balance, darling.

And Ayurveda can help you do just that, the easy way, by hitting the rewind button and working to reverse the undesirable effects on your body—hello, premature crow’s-feet–from living in a toxic world.

Regarded as the world’s oldest healing science originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda (eye-yer-vay-da), translates simply as the ‘science of life.’ The science that says that every natural system has a balance.

The ocean has a process in place that allows it to cleanse itself. Certain types of flora even thrive in the ashes of a vegetation fire, ushering in the regeneration of life. Nature has a flow that maintains its balance and corrects itself naturally.

And Ayurveda teaches you how to adopt nature’s rhythm for sexy, soul-satisfying, optimal, more-vibrant-than-ever health.

In Ayurveda, there’s a belief that we, too, are made up of the elements of nature: earth, water, fire, air and space.

The order in which the elements align in each of us determines what’s called our dominant dosha, which, in turn, dictates our individual needs, our tendencies, and any potential issues of concern—physically, mentally or emotionally.

The three doshas are:

:: Vata, the wind element
:: Pitta, the fire element
:: Kapha, the earth element.

Out of those elements, our dominant dosha can be one, a mix of two, and on some occasions, contain virtues of all three. (Now there’s an exotic blend!)

When these doshas aren’t in harmony, your body simply isn’t in balance. And that can lead to icky symptoms—anxiety, tiredness and sickness—that you may be experiencing.

But when you discover your dominant dosha, and begin adopting complementary dietary and lifestyle practices in line with it?

It’s like flipping on a big ol’ roaring furnace of flames inside of you.

One that lights you up, optimizes your energy, and makes you wonder how you ever lived any other way.

Flipping that switch can bring you back to an inner vitality—to your inner vitality. Because, you see, Ayurveda doesn’t just throw any old recipe for health against the wall to see what sticks. Rather, the way it works is by uncovering the root cause of concern—whatever’s been plaguing you, from the inside out—and then uses that information to determine what, exactly, you personally need to be consuming, doing, and living each day to fix it. For you.

It’s body. It’s mind. It’s soul. It’s an all-in-one, holistically sacred set of principles that will change everything.

 

That said, as powerful as Ayurveda can be, it’s still not a quick fix. But that’s okay. Because quick or not, it works.

You see, the process that makes you function isn’t a simple one, and neither is reestablishing balance.

But what Ayurveda can do is teach you the process of alleviating the unpleasant (and tiresome) symptoms that are keeping you from enjoying your life.

Through a combination of diet, herbs, aromatherapy, massage and lifestyle changes you will rediscover your ideal sweet-spot state of blissful balance. And it’ll be the best thing you’ve done all year. Or even this entire decade. Or maybe for your whole life.

I’ll prove it to you.

Are you ready to prove it to yourself?

 

About Vata, The Wind Element

People with a dominant Vata dosha are made of air and space and tend to easily find themselves out of balance. Fortunately it is also easy for Vata people to return back to balance.

Vata is responsible for the body’s physical movement. Functions like blinking, circulation, elimination and big movements like jumping and running are controlled by Vata. Some Vata types are of low weight, anxious, worry a lot, and have a tendency to accumulate weight around the belly or waist. You might feel easily overwhelmed or lack direction. These types are often insomniacs, are creative and innovative, have contagious energy and at times have trouble slowing down.

 

About Pitta, The Fire Element

People with a dominant Pitta dosha are made out of fire and air and therefore are sturdier than Vatas. It takes more to throw Pittas off-balance than it does Vatas but it also takes more work to return to balanced state.

Pitta is responsible for digestion and transformation as it’s the heat that transforms food, thoughts and physical exertion into energy. In general Pitta types tend to be of medium body fat with a tendency to accumulate weight in the hips and thigh area. They are perfectionists, tend towards criticism and anger (explosive or repressed), achievers, intelligent, generally run hot and can exhibit inflammatory skin conditions.

 

About Kapha, The Earth Element

The sturdiest of doshas, Kaphas are made of earth and water and tend to be the healthiest.
Responsible for the lubrication and structure of the body, Kapha lubricates the brain and joints. It keeps our bodies grounded and from shriveling up. This accumulation of Kapha is essential during the winter to keep our bodies rooted and grounded, however, our bodies must clear this extra Kapha from our bodies come Spring to stay in balance. Excess Kapha often means symptoms like allergies, lethargy, excess mucus and or excess weight gain.

Kapha types have plentiful body fat, weight accumulates evenly over the body, are peacemakers, listeners, great nurturers but tend toward attachment. They can tend to get sluggish, lethargic and are congestion-prone.
