Are you suffering from a chronic or acute illness? If so, Ayurvedic medicine and the Ayurvedic clock has some guidelines that may be helpful for you.
Ayurveda is a sacred system of science and philosophy that is designed to help you connect with the truth in your daily life. It is a holistic form of medicine based on a close relationship between yourself and your natural environment. It holds true that we are a microcosm of our larger macrocosm. When the five basic elements of nature, ether, air, fire, water and earth are in balance in us, we will experience harmony.
Between 10 pm and 2 am your body transitions into pitta time. This is a time of deep sleep, liver activities and organ detoxification and repair. Your organs are going through important healing and restoration at this time. It is super important that you are in deep sleep at this time and not eating so that your body can be doing this important work of healing and repairing.
If you want to know what dosha you are and you would like to know more about Ayurveda, I will refer you to this blog post where I tell you about my favourite resources and online quizes:
Also if you would like more support in balancing your doshas through yoga, then I highly recommend our postures and pranayama section in our membership community. In that section we have yoga classes where we modify each yoga pose to balance each Ayurvedic constitution. Stimulating for kaphas, calming for vatas, and cooling for pittas.
We also have a whole series of five classes for recuperation when you are ill. It starts with a restorative class to bring acceptance to illness, we will explore illness and suffering as an opportunity to bring acceptance, appreciation, acknowledgement and adoration to the places within us that are starved for attention. A sleep yoga/yoga nidra for healing offers an an antidote to exhaustion, illness and weakened immunity. A yoga class for your spleen allows you to return to our core (your spleen) to nourish, generate and ripen your life force. A class for your lymph nodes will encourage the filtration of lymph fluid as it flows through the lymph nodes, trapping bacteria, viruses, and other foreign substances, which are then destroyed by special white blood cells. Finally a class for your tonsils and thymus helps to stimulate the production of antibodies that help to fight infection.
