Winter Strength and Immunity for All

Winter Strength and Immunity for All

Kapha Seasonal Changes Vata

Supporting Winter Strength and Immunity

With the onset of cold weather, our ability to stay healthy is challenged. It’s especially true when the same ill-symptom occurs at the same time every year. Learning to recognize the early signals your body provides is key to preventing deeper health issues.  

Prevention is the primary goal of Ayurveda, and being aware of the early symptom signals your body provides is essential. At the beginning of winter, the cold drying effects of vata are felt, as winter progresses the deeper cold of kapha settles in. This transition challenges our strength and immunity and manifests as colds, cough, fever, headache, sinus congestion, constipation, indigestion, insomnia, itchy dry skin, and body pain and stiffness. 

These symptoms require diet and activity modifications, along with targeted herbal formulations. At Kottakkal USA we offer more than 250 classical formulations that support many common health conditions.
