Know Your Ayurvedic Body Type

Ayurveda classifies the human body into 3 categories or types depending on the kind of energies or doshas which are proportionately strongest in them. These include Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Vata represents the Air & Space elements, Pitta represents the Fire & Water elements and Kapha represents the Water & Earth elements.  An Ayurvedic Body is one that works in perfect equilibrium with all forces of nature. Once the body is healthy and balanced from the inside, the same reflects on the outside as well. And this is why, Ayurveda stresses on knowing your body type well so that you can work towards maintaining it well. Factors such as stress, unhealthy eating habits and insufficient lifestyle, all contribute in creating imbalances in our body. Such imbalances disturbs the natural processes of the body, leading to unwanted accumulation of toxins (ama).

Your DOSHA

 

 

Kitchari is Ayurveda's perfect food, indicated in times of recovery as well as cleansing. Kitchari can even be the centerpiece of a mono-diet or fast, as it is a simple food that supplements the healing process. Typical modifications include vegetables such as carrots, greens, zucchini, or potatoes. Spices like cumin, cinnamon, or black pepper can be included, as well as even toasted nuts or coconut. Technically, a kitchari is any dish combining rice and legumes. Typically, however, kitcharies use mung beans because they are the easiest legume to digest. This kitchari is especially suited to Kapha dosha.

 

Kitchari is an easy way to cleanse your digestion, restore freshness and offers a true delight to both your body and senses. It is a heart warming synergy of mung beans, basmati rice, and digestive spices that is easy to prepare. This time tested formula, centuries old, is a complete protein, rich in fiber, cleansing to the digestive tract, and will act to bulk up stool for easier elimination. 

 

 

Spices are the difference between a tasty meal and a bland one, and also the difference between healthy and poor circulation. A Kapha imbalance can cause your circulation to stagnate, depressing your metabolism and causing weight gain. A well-spiced dish can stimulate your circulation, invigorate your metabolism, and clear out congestion. In Kitchari, cloves open up your pores and enhance blood flow to the skin, reducing puffiness and lymphatic congestion. Cardamom destroys mucous congestion. Ginger stimulates the heart. Cumin and bay leaf reduce water retention. Reach for these spices with enthusiasm, while paying attention to the way it responds.
