Late summer greetings from Neelam Toprani

Neelam Toprani

Summer reminds me of the quote of F. Scott Fitzgerald from , The Great Gatsby : 
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

We all enjoyed the long days of summer filled with fun and sunshine. Summer brought us feast of fruits, berries and vegetables from our own gardens, (for those avid gardeners) or from local farmer markets and produce departments for most of us. The late summer is nature's time of fullness, richness and preparation for the abundant harvest of fall.

At times to beat the increased summer heat, we resort to caffeinated iced drinks which may look thirst quenching but the caffeine actually dehydrates the body. Alcoholic drinks are even more dehydrating. 
Caffeine and alcohol are toxic to the liver. One of the first signs of toxins in the liver is dull, dry, lifeless skin. Even non-caffeinated carbonated iced drinks disrupt the digestion and are a major cause of toxins.

top5Tips for Late Summer

1. Diet

summer vegetables]Ideal summer diet is mostly cooling, moistening, nourishing and refreshing, with a balanced action. This is the time to enjoy the late summer harvest of apples and pears, perfect cleansing and clearing foods to end the summer season. While it is still hot outside, it is advisable to eat light foods - fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh lime, avocado and light grains such as basmati rice and quinoa. Between hot and cool seasons, we may use herbs to slightly increase our digestive fire to maintain proper function. The preparation of meals or teas with cardamom, fennel, cumin, coriander, fenugreek is especially effective.

2. Lifestyle

Take a break from work that requires intense visual focus. Spend some time gazing summers green foliage and meadows. Wear breathable natural fibers like cotton and linen that have a cooling effect. Listen to soothing music to calm your mind and spirit.

3. Yoga

Ayurveda offers advice on adding Pitta Balancing Asanas in yoga practice in the summer to alleviate imbalance caused by excess heat. Out of balance pitta may manifest as impatience, aggressiveness, self-criticism, intensity and competitiveness. The adoption of soothing, restorative yoga practice will prevent these symptoms as well as digestive issues and skin irritations.

5. Skin care : Balancing Tridosha (Vata-Pitta-Kapha) oil

Tridosha oil

During varying periods of heat and cooling rain showers, regular self massage with Padmashri Tridosha oil keeps the doshas in balance. Padmashri Tridosha oil is a combination of oils prepared with herbal extracts that act to balance Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, including Kushta, Sandalwood and Camphor. It is a perfect blend to help balance and alleviate aggravations of all three doshas, where symptoms are complex and variable. Padmashri Tridosha oil can also be used preventatively in otherwise good health, to maintain the balance of all three doshas.
