Aug 15, 2020: Ayurveda of the Immune System
In Her It Blooms
Building a strong immune system requires different approaches for different bodies. There isn’t one herb or protocol for all of us. Each body type is likely to go out of balance for different reasons and this is at the root of why our immune systems become run down and how we become susceptible to disease. Knowing your ayurvedic body type and how our body is likely to go out of alignment helps us to know how you can support your body’s unique immune system. In this two hour workshop, we will briefly discuss the three dosha or Ayurvedic Body types and each of their immune systems tendencies, as well as the lifestyle medicine and herbs we can use to nourish our immune systems.
Get to know your body type or dosha’s unique immune system
Learn the lifestyle medicine and herbs for each body type as well as suggestions for supporting your immune system during the global COVID-19 Pandemic along with the stress of our collective struggle for liberation and living under capitalism. Yes, we got some things we can do about that!
Learn how to adapt food as medicine for different members of your household, based on their body types–I’ll leave you with three template “recipes” that you can adapt to different dosha (for different members of the household, seasons, situations,etc).
