Sharad Ritu (Autumn) & Ayurvedic Pitta Detox (Virechana)

Sharad Rutucharya and Virechana Panchakarma

The intensity of the rainy season is slowly diminishing and autumn has just arrived. Unlike the cold and humid climate of the rainy season, autumn is a hot day and a cold night. This season, which falls between Ashwin and Karthik (Mid September to Mid November), is a pleasant season for some, but not for others. This is what we call October heat these days. The poet Kalidasa as well as Tulsidas have beautifully described this season. After the end of the rainy season, the greenery is adorned like a bride, the lotus blossoms in the lake, the chirping of the swan, and the cool moonlight of autumn are all captivating.

Even so, this season is difficult for people who suffer from pitta/( acidic nature). This is because the pitta dosha

accumulated in the body during the previous rainy season begins to be provoked by the increased heat in autumn. Increased pitta in this manner causes many pitta diseases in the body such as Hyperacidity, skin disorders, stomach disorders, burning of body and limbs, insomnia, stomatitis, Mouth Ulcers, etc.
