1. Create consistency in all parts of life
Modern living is often ungrounding; we are running around doing multiple things at once, eating while driving, or watching
tv, rushing out the house in the morning with a cup of coffee in one hand and a sandwich in the other. This aggravates the normal movement in our body, creating the imbalance.
2. Boost your metabolism
Your health depends on the ability to digest the nutritional, emotional, and sensory
information we consume. When you have a stable and robust digestive power, you will be able to create healthy tissues, eliminate waste properly, and produce enough energy.
3. Abhyanga oil massage
Abhyanga is an ancient practice that nourishes the body from the outside in, while also balancing the doshas. When struggling
with a vata imbalance, use a warming oil like organic cold-pressed sesame seed oil or specific vata herbal oil.
4. Warming foods
When we have too much vata in our body, we tend to feel cold inside and out. Especially cold hands and feet. To counter this
cold, focus on eating warming foods, spices, and plenty of healthy oils. Avoid dry, light, rough, cold, raw, and airy foods. (like chips, crackers, popcorn, dehydrated
food). Warming foods are properly cooked, fresh and full of flavor
5. Castor oil pack for belly or back cramps.
Soak a cloth with warm castor oil. Lay down and place the fabric on the belly or
back if you have put a warm water bottle on top to keep the cloth warm. Make sure to cover the rest of your body with a blanket.
