Hemant (Early Winter)
Early winter in November at AyurVAID Kalmatia is cool. During Hemant, the strength of the body will be good, and potency in the environment, the medicines, the natural immunity and resistance of the body is at its optimum. Agni-chatagni is potent. The digestive power of a human being is enhanced due to the external cold and how it restrains the heat inside the body and does not let it out. The internal heat increases in the digestion making it stronger so it is capable of digesting any food substance irrespective of its heaviness and the quantity ingested. So, it is time to indulge in sweets and being lavish on food.
But, if you do not feed this strong digestion and it does not get the proper fuel, the digestive fire affects the nutritive fluids of the body and consumes the tissues of the body (autolysis), causing Vata Dosha to be aggravated. (Vata is a subtle dosha that goes out of balance easily. Vata people often suffer from depletion of nutrients. Their behavior is creative when balanced, or erratic and dispersed when imbalanced. Vata is the element of ether and air in the body. Ether has a spacey quality, and air has movement.)
