Here are some great products to help keep you healthy during Vata season – late fall and winter: 

Deep Sleep – we need rest in order to stay healthy. Doing your head and foot massage with Bhringaraj oil is the best. Here is a link: and for Sleep Easy oil which has some essential oils in it – can be used also for head and foot massage:
and Sleep Soundly tablets:
None of these will work to their optimum level, however, if you are not faithfully doing your dinacharya and attempting to eat for the season or to reduce your doshic imbalance. These work in synergy with your actions! 
Help during menopause (good for all stages of life as well):  Shatavari – which means 100 husbands in Sanskrit – to help with libido, menopause and it’s generally considered an excellent brain tonic as well. We take it in the morning (all brain boosters should be taken in the morning with food). Here is a link: – powder – you can mix with warm water or milk – tincture (drops)
Here are some  “churnas” – spice and herb mixes for cough and cold season. Everyone should have these in their medicine cabinet. I make a tea with a 1/4 teaspoon each, mix together, or you can mix with equal amount of raw, organic honey and lick it off the spoon (it’s yummy). It will coat your throat and promote healing!
This herbal throat spray is great too – especially for travel or work in dry, heated buildings:
And remember your Nasya Oil!! I carry mine everywhere in the fall and winter: 
This will all work best if you are eating healthy, warm cooked foods. Sticking to a feeding schedule, dressing warmly and getting out into the elements for at the VERY list 10 minutes a day – but I’m being very generous with that. try to work up to 30 minutes of outdoor time – walking, clearing the garden, raking, etc. We need those microbes in the air and earth to keep us healthy!!
Here is a great book about the importance of good bacteria in our lives: Rob Dunn. His new book, ‘Never Home Alone,’ examines the bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites and insects we live with — from armpit bacteria to black mold in our walls. 
If anyone who was here last night wants to share some of your notes from our talk please do! That would be great.
stay warm!
