“Ayurveda says that we should transition from one season to the next. And that's really so that we can have optimal, vibrant health.” – Dr. Avanti Kumar-Singh

Whether its stress, allergies, or a cold, seasonal buildup can affect your health. Setting up a plan to help you gracefully transition through seasons is a core tenet of Ayurveda. On this week’s episode of The Healing Catalyst, Dr. Kumar-Singh takes you through the qualities of each season and offers a transition plan to help you maintain optimal health.

She discusses the three most important areas of remedy: intelligent routines, diet, and the tools of yoga. Because we’ve all been staying home and ‘sheltering in place’ for months, many of us haven’t made the full transition from winter to spring and summer. Listen to today’s episode and get back on track.
