We have put together a guide where we look at menopausal symptoms by constitution, so we can get a handle on some of the daily habits and dietary supports that can help us mange our transition.

WHAT IS AYURVEDA?

The name “Ayurveda” is derived from two words in Sanskrit, “ayuh” meaning “life” or “longevity” and “veda” meaning “science” or “sacred knowledge.” Ayurveda’s definition therefore roughly translates as “the science of longevity” or “the sacred knowledge of life.” At its root, Ayurveda is a holistic tradition and way of living that can help each of us to claim and celebrate our capacity for wellness.

I AM HAVING TROUBLE SLEEPING - CAN I USE AYURVEDA TO HELP?

Sleep experts recommend going to bed and waking up at the same time every day (including weekends) to help train the body to snooze soundly. Ayurveda agrees. Insomnia is caused by imbalanced vata—the constitutional energy, or dosha, associated with the elements of air and space, and characterized by movement and creativity. When excessive, this energy causes restlessness and anxiety. A regular routine goes a long way in balancing vata.

WHAT IS A DOSHA?

One of three functional energies in nature: vata, pitta, and kapha. In the body, it is the unique ratio of these three humors that determines an individual’s prakriti (constitution). When the doshas are present in appropriate quantities, they support the health and integrity of the body; when they are out of balance, they can cause illness and disease.
