Ayurveda and Autumn

Ayurveda and Autumn

Autumn.jpg

According to Ayurveda as we move through the rainy season which holds many health problems as discussed in the Rainy Season section, we move into Autumn which according to the Vedic calendar is late Sept to Mid November.

Ayurveda tells us that the end of Autumn is a good time for all doshas to be cleansed, Maya Tiwari tells us that this is the time when all three doshas can be relieved of their excesses.

This can be done through your own intensive home cleanse, a 7 day cleanse is available on the site soon, look for the page to join it.
