An Ounce Of Prevention Is Better Than A Pound Of Cure
What is it about Vata that makes it such a player in the game? Simply stated, Vata governs all movement and so it is behind everything. It pushes pitta, it moves around excessively, it’s movement is drying…and on the list goes. It is powerful dancer in the doshic landscape.
Simple things, done preventively, have a significant influence. When we skillfully and with specificity, work with the Vata before it begins the path of accumulating, of gaining momentum, we are well positioned to keep or return Vata to a state of equilibrium.
So, what can we do? That depends on where you are here and now. How Vata expresses for one person is different than for another. How to balance that doshas varies by the individual as well.
Seasonal Consultations are the ounce of prevention the good doctor speaks of in her testimonial.
Please remember, how we transition from summer to fall, influences how we move through both fall and winter which is a trying season with flus, colds, and low sunlight.
