Chyavanaprash and Ayurvedic Winter Guidelines ๐Ÿงฃ

We have just recently begun the winter season here in Australia ๐Ÿงฃ You will notice the weather is definitely more cold and damp. As a result, both Vata and Kapha doshas are more likely to increase, making us prone to colds, cough ๐Ÿ˜ท sinusitis, depression and weight gain.

Dietary Tips

  1. Favour a warm, nourishing diet to pacify Vata without aggravating Kapha.ย Weโ€™re designed to eat a little bit more in winter. However, it must be the right types of foods to nurture whilst minimising congestion.
  2. Rice, barley, rye, healthy oils (ghee, linseed, avocado, hemp, olive), and seasonal root vegetables in soups and stews ๐Ÿฅฃ
  3. Avoid โŒ Vata aggravating non-seasonal food, such as salads and raw food in general.
  4. Lukewarm water aids in digestion – avoid cold drinks โ˜•๏ธ
  5. Have a warm breakfast. We recommend porridge with a sprinkle of Kapha churna and honey ๐Ÿฏ
  6. Steamed vegetables, and rice ๐Ÿš with a little ghee for lunch.
  7. In the evening before bed, try some hot milk with warming spices such as ginger, cinnamon or cardamon ๐Ÿฅ›

Lifestyle Tips

  1. Stay warm, always wear a hat and scarf outside as 60% of the body heat is lost through the head.
  2. Ground yourself with a daily warm oil self-massage followed by a warm shower or bath ๐Ÿ›€
  3. Use aromatherapy oils that are warm, pungent and uplifting such as camphor, cinnamon, cloves, orange, cedar and frankincense.
  4. Favour clothes which are bright in colours.
  5. Exercise ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Be up by 6.30-7 am at the latest and perform some vigorous exercise to get the lymphatic system moving. Sun Salutations are ideal as they build heat and work all the major muscles.
  6. Avoid day sleeping as this will diminish your digestive fire and will make you feel heavy and sluggish.
