Healthy Dieting & Digestion Made Easy with Ayurveda
|Home | Learn Ayurveda | Vata Dosha|
Vata comes at the end of digestion, the end of the day, the end of the year, and the end of a person's life. Vata naturally increases during the following times:
Autumn - Vata gets high in the autumn due to cold, dry and mobile qualities. Autumn is mobile because the weather is irregular and windy.
Before sunrise and sunset - In the late afternoon, before sunset, Vata is high because the body is weary and deficient from a long day's work. In the early morning before sunrise, Vata is high because the nervous system stimulates the body to wake up.
5-6 hours after a meal - Five to six hours after a meal Vata rises when blood sugar levels dip and the body gets hungry.
After 50 - Vata is deficiency and the body becomes deficient in later years of life.
Colon - The body reabsorbs moisture from feces before elimination in the colon. When the body is dry, the body struggles to absorb more water, leading to dryness in the colon. The signs of dryness are gas and constipation.
Waist & Lower Half of the Body - When Vata is high, the body becomes more mobile and the mind more active. We tend to forget about the lower half of the body.
Bones - In Ayurveda, the colon is the site of mineral re-absorption. Mineral deficiencies show up as white spots on the nails, hair loss, or arthritis. Problems with bones, nails or hair are due to high Vata.
Skin - When ama from the colon vitiates the blood, the kidneys try to eliminate the toxins through the urinary tract. The result is excess loss of fluids leading to dry skin. Vata is also the dosha of touch.
Ears - Ringing in the ears is due to high Vata. When the quality of the blood is poor due to ama, the sense organs get stimulated. The ears are especially sensitive. Many Vata people are musicians.
Mind - When Vata is high, the mind becomes stimulated, anxious, or afraid. Vata people often experience racing, disjointed thoughts. They are highly imaginative, quick to understand but also quick to forget.
