Have you ever wondered why we suffer from hay fevers and seasonal allergies? Ancient sages of Ayurveda noticed that changing seasons bring about aggravation of the Doshas (bio-energies), the transition of the seasons alters our metabolism, tissue nourishment and immunity, making us susceptible to diseases. Ayurveda gives guidelines to adapt to the changing seasons, by implementing simple (do-it- yourself) measures that balance out Dosha aggression and protect the body from sickness, so that we can stay healthy and savor every passing season.
