    Yes, winter is now on the horizon with Monday 1st of June the ‘official’ start of winter just around the corner.

    As the days get colder it‘s important to protect your health by ensuring your immune system is not loaded with impurities from incomplete digestion.

    Now that the weather is becoming cooler with increased rainfall, this signals to nature that summer is coming to a close and the seasonal change to autumn has begun.

    The winds of change are blowing the heat that has accumulated during the summer season around your body. There is an increase of Pitta symptoms as the body tries to detox the excess heat that has been released into your bloodstream for a spontaneous seasonal cleanse.

    Clients I am seeing during this time reflect this seasonal change in their body and minds.  As Vata dosha guides the seasonal changes people are noticing that their …
