Use our Durga Mix…are you feeling slow, sluggish, lethargic?

Durga is an ideal seasoning for this chilly Winter weather to warm your insides! 🙂
Perfect to be added to meals to stimulate your tastes and stomach when you are feeling slow and sluggish or lethargic.
While you can’t control the weather, you can control these factors, which either build your health, vitality, and resistance to disease, or wear you down.
Ayurvedically speaking, colds are a kapha-vata disorder. The body builds up an excess of cool and moist kapha qualities, resulting in congestion and a runny nose, and at the same time it may suffer from excess vata, which reduces agni (appetite), leading to chills, loss of appetite, and poor digestion.
When you are feeling this way adding heated spices in your meal will warm you up, increase circulation and digestion.
Adding our Durga Seasoning Mix to your meals – mixing a portion through or sprinkling on top will enhance the above.
Alternatively mix 1/2 tsp with 1/2 cup warm water 1/2 hour before lunch and dinner will stimulate the body so you don’t lead to feeling slow and sluggish after the meal.

Revive & Balance with “Durga”

According to Ayurveda the first requirement for healing oneself & others is a clear understanding of the 3 doshas. The concept of Vata, Pitta & Kapha is unique to Ayurveda and it holds the potential for revolutionising the healing systems of the West. No one is individually made up of solely one element of Vata, Pitta & Kapha, rather each person is a combination of all 3 elements, with a predominant tendency towards one or more. Dr Vasant Lad

Therefore we shouldn’t categorise ourselves into thinking we are a particular dosha and treat ourselves in that way. We can at any time in our lives especially in our busy lifestyles now have aggravations in our body and mind that can relate to any of the Doshas.

According to Ayurveda if you are feeling heavy, overweight, slow, sluggish or lethargic the best dietary options would be to –

Avoid fatty, salty, deep fried, sweet, cold or frozen food & drinks, oversleeping, overeating, eating late at night, cold, damp wet weather, lethargic lifestyle.

Favour bitter, pungent, astringent tastes. Routine for meals & lifestyle. Warm nourishing light foods, fruits, vegetables & legumes, vigorous regular exercise, less sleep, no napping, active lifestyle in a warm, dry environment.
