SUMMERTIME SOOTHERS

During the heat of summer the focus needs to be on balancing Pitta with sweet, bitter & astringent tastes.
 
Sweet taste is composed of the earth and water elements and is grounding, calming & cooling for summer. It relieves thirst & burning sensations & promotes the growth of all body tissues & Ojas.

Sweet foods are: almonds, macadamias, cashews, dates, figs, prunes, coconut, mung beans, basmati rice, rose water, liquorice, coconut, fennel, flaxseed, raisins & sesame seeds.
 
Bitter taste is cooling and composed of the air and space elements with dry & light properties. It is detoxifying, antibacterial & germicidal, relieving itching, burning sensations, inflammatory skin conditions & thirst. It also promotes your digestive fire, aiding digestion & removing toxic accumulations from deep tissues of the body.

Bitter foods are: aloe vera, dandelion, saffron, echinacea, tarragon, turmeric, rosemary, rhubarb, barberry, chicory, endive, kale & sprouts.
 
Astringent taste is dry, light & cooling and derived from the air & earth elements, it promotes absorption of body fluids, aids in healing of joints, wounds, ulcers & stops bleeding.
