For example fire is hot. It changes matter. It is needed for metabolism and digestion.
If you discover after going through the constitution chart that you have a lot of fire energy. You are more likely to suffer from heat related illness. You will have a Pitta Dosha (Fire as the main energy)
Physically out of balance you will suffer more from illness related to inflammation such as eczema. Digestive and liver problems.
Emotionally you will be determined and driven or out of balance pushy and bossy!
Emotionally the fire energy when out of balance causes anger, frustration and irritability.
A hot day in summer will increase the fire in everyone but you in particular will feel it. You may get more hot and bothered.
Yoga at this time should be cooling and calming. Sun salutations and heating yoga will cause you to become more imbalanced.
Meditations can focus on water or cooling colours such as blue or purple.
Even wearing them or lovely crystal jewelry will help.
A swim or cool shower.
Cooling herbs and more salads in your diet.
I hope I have awakened your interest.
Can you understand already how simple and common sense this Ancient knowledge is?
Of course you should use conventional medicine and visit your doctor but you can still use this system too. It is not meant to be alternative it is complementary.
