Curejoy Expert Dr.Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

Toxins are periodically built up in the body due to an unhealthy lifestyle. These toxins have to be expelled often, in order to keep our body working in a healthy manner. An ancient text written by Sushruta, a famous surgeon and doctor in ancient India, explained that, “Increased kapha has a tendency to accumulate toxins in our tissues rigidly. Kapha increases due to the influence of winter and one can reduce this by trying detoxification methods like Panchakarma. Emotionally, the kapha symptoms will manifest as feeling dull, lethargic or feeling depressed. Physically, putting on excess weight, cold and allergies may appear.”

In Ayurveda, Kapha is dominant and vitiated in Vasant ritu (late spring). Hence, Panchakarma or any other detoxification practices should be practiced during Vasant ritu.

Thus, the cold, heavy, sticky and dull qualities of winter and dampness of the spring tend to enhance ‘kapha’. Late in ‘Kapha’ season, the ama (toxins) tend to be more mobile in our bodies, thus detoxification therapies like Panchakarma in this season will be more Kapha reducing and effective. Kapha season is from spring to early summer (January-June) and Kapha time is 6 am to 10 am and 6 pm to 10 pm.
