"Is Spiritual Home Design The Future? Experts Say Yes"
"Part of my work is helping people with imbalances in health to integrate new medicines or routines into their day by actively instituting tools and rituals according to Ayurvedic recommendations," explains Dr. Bhattacharya. "For example, an atmosphere of calm is important for the vata-dominant person, who is either vata by constitution, or has a vata imbalance. People who have lives full of chaos and fast-paced work, urgent deadlines and plenty of travel can reground and center if their homes are calm."
She adds that the ideal items for grounding vata include a meditation cushion, a stock pot for Sunday soup endeavors, and a bronze oil bowl for pre-bath sesame oil massage.
