Ancient Ayurvedic principles guide us to align ourselves with seasonal change. An appropriate seasonal routine can help us promote optimal health in spring.
First, we need to understand the kapha dosha and how to bring it into balance. Of the three doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha), kapha endows the water and earth elements. It lubricates joints, and provides mucus to protect sinuses, lungs and stomach. It also determines the shape, size, strength and suppleness of muscle and body.
When kapha is in balance, you feel strong and stable. When it’s out of balance, you may retain water in your tissues, and experience excess phlegm in your respiratory system. Symptoms can also include lethargy, heaviness, sleepiness, and depression.
It is especially important to balance kapha in the spring. Kapha accumulates during winter and then starts to ‘melt’ as the temperature rises. If left unchecked, this natural process can create diseases by the time spring arrives. Common symptoms of kapha aggravation during spring includes coughs, colds, sneezing, rhinitis, bronchitis, sinusitis, indigestion, nausea, and excess salivation.
