  • The Srotas are channels in the body through which the doshas of Vata, Pitta and Kapha move. There are many types of srotas in the body from the subtle energetic channels called nadis to the largest channel in the body, maha srotas, the gastrointestinal tract.

    In this episode Colette explains the main channels of the body and she focuses on anna vaha srotas, the food channel. She details what happens when we eat and the journey through the food channel and the subdoshas involved which includes:

    bodhaka kapha prana vayu sadhaka pitta kledaka kapha samana vayu pachaka pitta ranjaka pitta apana vayu

    Colette also discusses the four types of imbalances which can occur in the srotas/channels and how they can manifest in the anna vaha srotas.

  • Colette takes questions from the Elements of Ayurveda Podcast community and she answers the following questions:

    Ayurvedic view on intermittent fasting or time restricted eating and which dosha would benefit the most/least?

    My family has been suffering with coughs and congestion since early Autumn, what are some natural Ayurvedic tips to help relieve these symptoms and what could be the root cause?

    Vata type cough - Make a soothing tea with 1 tsp raw honey, 1/2 tsp of ground turmeric & 1/2 tsp ground ginger + 1 pinch of ground black pepper. Golden turmeric milk in the evening with ghee and nutmeg is also helpful for this type of cough. Download the golden turmeric milk recipe here. Pitta type cough - Gargle with 1/2 tsp of neem powder in warm water. A sitopaladi tea with 1/2 tsp sitopaladi powder and 1 tsp raw honey. Kapha type cough - Make a tea to break up the sticky congestion with 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, a pinch of clove and cinnamon in hot water. Tulsi tea is also beneficial for this type of cough.

    My nails and hair are very dry and brittle. Is this a sign on an imbalance in a dosha? What can I do to fix it?

    In this solo episode Colette shares ideas on how we can set eco-friendly intentions for 2023 by making some small changes in our daily lives with the goal to connect with nature and to limit our impact on the environment. She covers the following topics:
