Vata’s qualities are: cold, dry, light, and mobile.
When Vata is present, there is worry, anxiety, and overwhelm. There is an excessive amount of movement in the mind. This causes difficulty with sleep, dry hard rabbit-turd stools, and a confusion of the normal biological functions of the body.
Vata headaches can occur because we are:
- full of anxiety
- doing too much (ie: not resting enough)
The way to remedy this is to apply the opposite qualities of warm/hot, moist/oily, heavy, and still/stable to restore balance.
