For Ayurveda the change of season is set by the energy field Vata (air) that can upset in excess the field Pitta (Fire), present in the stomach.This may cause a burning sensation, acidity, and sometimes swelling. Excessive burning may also be due to wrong lifestyles such as: cigarette smoke, ingestion of alcohol, irritating foods like chilli, hearty meals, stress, and certain medications.
To soothe the burning sensations Ayurveda suggests eating food with a ‘sweet’ taste (Rasa). The food that has ultimate sweetness is ghee (see our recipe section), so we recommend eating a spoon in the morning on an empty stomach followed by a glass of hot water. In addition to this dosage you can use ghee to season soups, meat, vegetables ….
‘Sweetness’ may also be represented by a gesture of “focus” on yourself, such as: stopping for a moment and take three deep breaths to break the tension, take a foot bath or a bath with Uttapa Virya®, which contains fragrant herbs in powder, or sip the herbal tea Pitta Samya Virya®.
If this all were not enough, we offer the ready-to-use decoction Jaranam Virya® that alleviates the stomach burning and Tejas Virya® to refresh the whole body. For those who also need an antioxidant action, because they are practicing sports or are studying, we offer the preparation in tablets Rikhiya Virya®.
