Ayurveda classifies the seasons according to their respective Dosha. As we leave the winds of the Vata season (Fall) behind, we move into the Kapha season – the winter season. This is the season of lingering flu, colds, and bronchitis. Staying warm and dry is important. Keeping the immune system strong is very important during this time of cold, changeable weather.
Made up of a mixture of water and earth, Kapha is responsible for the energy that gives the body its structure. It lubricates our joints and skin, assisting in the healing of wounds and immunity. Like winter characteristics, Kapha is slow, heavy, damp, oily, slimy, soft, static and sweet. When an imbalance has manifested, successful treatment requires increasing opposite qualities.
Herbs to remember for good health during Kapha season
Basil – Good for lungs, excellent ingredient for salad dressing, opens heart and mind; bestows love and devotion, clears aura and strengthens immune system.
Tulsi – The Indian variety of Basil and next to Lotus, is perhaps the most sacred plant of India. It has a strong purifying influence to the nervous system and absorbs negative ions and liberates the ozone from the suns rays. Both basils are diaphoretic, release fevers; decongest the lungs relieving flu and respiratory conditions. The Indian variety is more pungent than the western variety that we have in our markets.
Sage – Known for reducing excess water weight in the body; it has astringent quality, good for night sweats. It dries mucous membrane, suppresses mammary secretions, stops bleeding and is very good for ulcers. A great expectorant for the winter months.
Rosemary – Mental alertness, digestive aid, expectorant, and rejuvenative.
Thyme – A great pain reliever; it is warming to the digestive tract.

Despite the fact that people try diet upon diet, gimmicks, exercises, and fads, obesity has become a modern Western disease of major proportions. Over 60% of North Americans are 15 pounds or more over their optimum weight. Obesity shortens life, restricts mobility, decreases enjoyment, reduces attractiveness (less sex), lowers self-esteem, and diminishes awareness. Given all this, why is our culture seemingly uncontrollably overweight? What can Ayurveda do about it?
Ayurveda sees four major factors contributing to the problem: (1) over-abundance, (2) toxins, (3) sedentary lifestyles, and (4) failure of the intellect. The ancient science of Ayurveda has tried and true answers to this modern dilemma.
Ayurveda is the 5,000 year old “Science of Life”. It is an all-inclusive science, encompassing every facet of living. It began with ancient Holy men so connected to the Divine that the deepest truths were accessible to them. They then made these truths available to all beings, first through an oral history and later through written texts.
Ayurveda was the world’s first medical system. It used food, surgery, herbs, exercise, and meditation to bring the sick back into harmony. Ayurveda is the only medical system which recognizes that different people have different metabolisms. Ayurveda treats each “bodytype” differently. “One man’s food is another man’s poison”, observed Hippocrates, the father of Greek medicine. Dr. Deepak Chopra has created an enormous awareness of this medical system through his best selling books, tapes, and personal appearances.
Ayurveda distinguishes three main bodytypes:
-Difficulty gaining weight
-Holds weight around
-Can gain or lose weight easily
-Gains weight evenly
-Difficulty loosing weight
-Gains weight in hips and
the middle especially in chest thighs
