15 Immunity-Building Hacks To Kick Off Fall Wellness

The Ayurveda Experience August 17, 2017

The seven days at the end and commencement of a season is known as Rithu sandhi. During this period of time, the daily regimen of the preceding season should be discontinued gradually. That of the succeeding season should be gradually adopted. A sudden discontinuance or sudden adoption gives rise to diseases caused by non-habituation (Asatmya).

Rithu sandhi is a sensitive time.

As we enter the season of Fall, follow these 15 Ayurvedic tips to ease stress, minimize sickness and build strong immunity.

Additionally, use Triphala (2 tablets or 1 tsp Triphala powder) with lukewarm water at bedtime. Triphala is the traditional Ayurvedic digestive herb which  keeps your digestion strong and elimination regular. Use a natural detoxifier like a mixture of Amla, Neem and Turmeric powder to make your skin radiant. Take this internally (1 teaspoon) with water daily.
