Symptoms Tell A Story

The first step to healing is learning patterns from your symptoms. Symptoms are clues that reveal underlying imbalances, showing you where your body is weak. Specifically, they reveal the doshas & qualities that may have become aggravated. If you notice a quality or dosha appears next to many of your symptoms, it helps you establish a pattern that may be systemic.

Tingling/Numbness indicates one or more of the following doshas and qualities may be aggravated. Generally you would avoid foods and lifestyle habits that would aggravate these qualities:

I feel as if I have a trapped nerve in the shoulder area causing pain in the front bicep and achy wrist with tingly fingers. Also maybe not related the feeling of impending cramp in calf muscles. Are there any foods that can help ? Magnesium deficiency ??
