In Ayurveda, congestion is an effect of blocked channels, or srotamsi, that are meant to promote the movement of energy and substance throughout the body. Respiratory congestion relates to the three mind-body types, or doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Symptoms of a Vata imbalance caused by change in climate or excessive stress may include dryness, constriction and breathlessness, and can be soothed with bay leaf and black pepper.* Symptoms of a Pitta imbalance caused by one’s current state of emotions or lack of self-care may include inflammation, itchiness, fever or infection, and can be counteracted with licorice.* Symptoms of a Kapha imbalance caused by a change in weather or a lack of exercise may include excessive mucus, coughing or swelling, and can be pacified with warming spices like ginger, turmeric and cinnamon.*
Davidson’s De-Congest blend aims to clear the srotamsi of the body that promote the balanced circulation of energy and substance.*
