Ayurveda, the Change of Seasons, Your Metabolism, and Your Appetite

Ayurveda, the Change of Seasons, Your Metabolism, and Your Appetite

In today’s podcast Alex BIondo and I talk about our digestion, our appetite, our habits and how the change of seasons has an effect on our physiology and our bodies rhythms. When we live out of tune with the seasons, we cause ourselves disease; when we live in tune with the seasons, we choose flow, harmony and easeful living.

Alex and I dive into detoxing and discuss what a nourishing process detoxing truly is on all levels- physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. We talk about how our bodies aren’t meant to carry old energies of the past into future seasons and how to let those old energies go.

If you have been wondering how you can feel healthier, lighter, more energized, more integrated and in tune with yourself, then this podcast is for you. Learn to age gracefully and live in integrity with yourselves and your bodies by following seasonal rhythms and integrate what your body wants to become next!

I rap with Alex Biondo about the change of seasons:

  • Vata dosha and how we are affected as we transition from one season to the next
  • How we partner with our body and how we respect our digestive fires
  • Basic tips that help us to let go of the old and move excess out of our systems
  • The Ayurvedic term, “Ritucarya” , which means seasonal rhythm or the routines to be followed in different seasons

What you’ll get out of tuning in:

  • How you can relate and tune in to nature’s seasonal rhythms
  • How can we detox our bodies and minds in between seasons =
  • The importance of doing seasonal detox’s in order to let go of old habits and create new ones
