Hi all,
I'm a 35 year old man living in the US. I've been living according to Ayurvedic principles for several years now to correct a vata imbalance. My constitution is Pitta-Kapha. Over the years I have felt my channels clear but my Agni has yet to kick on. I am very sensitive to most foods. Lately I have had intense cravings for sweet foods but I have a hard time eating anything too sweet because it disturbs Kapha. I feel like I'm stuck in a paradox because the foods that reduce vata make kapha worse which in turn makes my vata imbalance worse. Does that sound right? Does anyone have any advice? Thanks, Mike

u need to go to panchkarma therapy named VASTI karma..for that time u may take some ayurvedic preparation to balance VATA like avipatikar churan in night, amrut tab thrice in a day, also some diet restriction too...

hello mike ,

Ist of all mark a note that body constitution keeps on changing with age , season , day and night. Its good that you know , you are pitta - kapha based but according to the age rule of body constitution its the peek time of pitta , and this means good agni , and you can digest every thing much easier .

If you crave for sweet you can eat and enoy , but take care of excess of sweet , sweet disturbs kapha only when taken in excess amount , try to take natural sweets coming through fruits veggies , honey . If you are not over weight / obese then you can easily enjoy good sweet any time .

If your digestive system is good , you are not feeling heavy after meals , not feeling gasy , stuffed then you can have things you want to eat .

Vata rules body in elder ages ( 6o years above ) and signs of vata is pains, excess dryness , itching. so don't confuse and enjoy eating in such a good age.

I hope this will help you coming out of your paradox.

Panchakarma therapy under an expert physician would be helpful
