Staying Healthy during Seasonal Transitions

Staying Healthy during Seasonal Transitions


AYURVEDIC SEASONAL CLEANSE: September 9th – 29th, 2016

Ayurveda calls the period between the seasons Ritu Sandhi “Sandhi means “junction,” and Ritu means “season,” so Ritu Sandhi is the period that joins two seasons.” It begins approximately 8 days before the end of the previous season and ending 7 days after the beginning of the following season, it typically lasts for approximately 15 days. During this period of time there’s confusion in the environment as the energy of Summer (Pitta) transitions to the energy of Fall (Vata). This confusion in the environment is reflected in our bodies and can cause weakness in our immunity,  making us susceptible to illness and toxins.

The Pitta dosha (heat) accumulates in the body at the end of Summer which can cause heat-related illnesses e.g. inflammation, outbreaks on the skin, excess acid in the body, etc. If this excess heat is not eliminated, it can cause toxin build-up which can lead to illness in the Fall (Vata) season e.g. dry skin, constipation, arthritic pain, colds, worried state of mind and lack of focus.

A seasonal cleanse is recommended during this transition to ease the body and mind into the next season, without aggravating the doshas. Seasonal cleansing is an integral part of the Ayurvedic and Yogic lifestyle.

During this holistic cleanse, Colette, our Ayurvedic wellness counselor will guide, support and educate you on how to bring your body, mind and soul into balance. You will slowly add the Vata-pacifying foods and lifestyle guidelines, so that by the end of the two weeks you are following the classic ayurvedic routine and lifestyle for Vata season. There is a no fasting in this cleanse. It will consist of three stages:

Stage 1: Preparation – reducing your intake of caffeine, processed foods and refined sugars 

Stage 2: Main cleansing phase – Oiling and softening the body to help in the release of the

toxins. Eating easy digestible meals balancing for your constitution 

Stage 3: Post-cleanse rejuvenation – cleansing can be depleting on the body and so

rejuvenation is extremely important
