Ayurvedic practices to stay balanced during fall

Ayurvedic practices can help patients manage the cold, dry weather, and frenetic pace of fall, according to Jo Tandberg, National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA)-certified Ayurvedic Counselor in White Salmon, Washington.

From the Ayurvedic perspective, fall is characterized by the quality of vata, a dosha or body type made up of the elements air and space. According to Tandberg, as the seasons change, our lifestyles must also change to maintain health and prevent an excess of any dosha.
