Do you experience hot flashes, stomach acid, and loose bowel movements? Do you tend to be demanding, frustrated, angry, or intense? Is your skin ruddy and prone to rashes and eruptions? Are you often irritable or impatient? Is your hair prematurely gray or thinning? Do you feel discomfort in hot weather? If so, you need to balance your Pitta Dosha... Ayurveda, which derives from ancient Vedic scriptures, is a 5,000-year-old medical ideology and philosophy based on the idea that we are all made up of different types of energy. There are three Doshas in Ayurveda that describe the dominant state of mind/body: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. While all three are present in everyone, Ayurveda suggests that we each have a dominant Dosha that is unwavering from birth, and ideally an equal (though often fluctuating) balance between the other two. If Doshas are balanced, we are healthy; when they are unbalanced, we develop a disorder commonly expressed by skin problems, impaired nutrition, insomnia, irritability, and anxiety. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are all important to our biology in some way, so no one is greater than, or superior to, any other. Each has a very specific set of basic functions to perform in the body. That said, when the Doshas are out of control, our well-being can be damaged. However, before we get into the particulars of each of the three Doshas, it is helpful to understand their basic nature and their wider function in the natural world. Each of the Doshas has its own special strengths and weaknesses, and with a little awareness, you can do a lot to remain healthy and balanced. You can use this series to adjust your lifestyles and routines in a way that supports your constitution. I’ve made a complete series of these three, one for each. This is the Pitta; the other two are also available. To Ayurveda, Pitta is one of the three Doshas—energetic forces of nature that make up the universe and everything within it, including us! Pitta is associated with the components of fire and water, but the former is more prominent. Together, they are the powerful power that controls the transformational processes of the body; metabolism and even the hormones of the body are believed to be regulated by Pitta. Pitta is the hottest, oiliest, and sharpest of the three Doshas of Ayurveda. When you feel overheated in any way, there may be an abundance of the Pitta Dosha inside your body. In this book, we’ll dive deeper into what Pitta means, what throws Pitta out of balance, and how to identify the Pitta Dosha in your environment, in yourself, and in others. With this book, I’m going to share with you everything you need to know in order to balance Pitta Dosha and use it to your overall vitality, joy, and well-being. Reading this you’ll discover: ✔️Pitta Characteristics ✔️Pitta Doshas and Sub-Doshas ✔️Disorders Caused by Pitta Imbalance ✔️What Causes Pitta Dosha or Imbalance ✔️Ways to Deal with Pitta Dosha ✔️Pitta-Stabilizing Lifestyle Tips ✔️Clarification on Pitta Dosha and Fasting ✔️The Relation Between Pitta Dosha and Cool Foods ✔️Guidance on Different Pitta Diets ✔️What Tastes to Favor for Pitta Balancing ✔️Foods that Pacify Pitta and What Foods to Avoid ✔️How to Eat for Pitta Balancing ✔️Pitta Friendly, Delicious Recipes ✔️Pitta Seasonal Guide ✔️Best Yoga Poses ✔️Essential Herbs ✔️Ideal Oil Massage for Pitta Balancing Just follow the book along, and you’ll reveal the easiest step-by-step routine to balance your Pitta Dosha by the end of it!

Do you have a propensity to be overweight? Do you sleep for a lot of hours, yet wake up unrefreshed? Do you feel stiff and sluggish, particularly in the morning? Are your skin and your hair oily? Do you experience pain in cool, humid weather? Is so, you need to balance your Kapha Dosha... Ayurveda, which derives from ancient Vedic scriptures, is a 5,000-year-old medical ideology and philosophy based on the idea that we are all made up of different types of energy. There are three Doshas in Ayurveda that describe the dominant state of mind/body: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. While all three are present in everyone, Ayurveda suggests that we each have a dominant Dosha that is unwavering from birth, and ideally an equal (though often fluctuating) balance between the other two. If Doshas are balanced, we are healthy; when they are unbalanced, we develop a disorder commonly expressed by skin problems, impaired nutrition, insomnia, irritability, and anxiety. Vata, pitta, and Kapha are all important to our biology in some way, so no one is greater than, or superior to, any other. Each has a very specific set of basic functions to perform in the body. That said, when the Doshas are out of control, our wellbeing can be damaged. However, before we get into the particulars of each of the three doshas, it is helpful to understand their basic nature and their wider function in the natural world. I’ve made a complete series of these three, one for each. This is the Kapha; the other two are also available. The elements of the earth and water combine with the Kapha. Kapha then unites properties such as heavy, slow, and steady, but also soft, thick, hard, and cold. In the body, Kapha is liable for solidity and all structures as well as for the right volume of body fluids. Kapha controls both the structure and lubrication in the mind and body. It regulates the weight, growth, lubrication of the joints and lungs, and the creation of all seven tissues—nutrient fluids, blood, at, muscles, bones, marrow, and reproductive tissue. Protection is the primary feature of Kapha. They're calm, rooted, and genuine while Kaphas are in harmony. If Kaphas get out of control, they binge-eat and under-exercise, triggering weight gain and diabetes. When Kapha is out of control, weight gain, excess mucous, lethargy, and nausea in the digestive tract can occur throughout the digestive tract. Stubbornness and commitment can become a matter for the emotional body. The unbalanced Kapha skin exhibits heavy oiliness, inflammation, cystic acne, blackheads, and large pores. In this book, we'll dive deeper into what Kapha means, what throws Kapha out of balance, and how to identify the Kapha Dosha in your environment, in yourself, and in others. With this book, I'm going to share with you everything you need to know in order to balance Kapha Dosha and use it to your overall vitality, joy, and well-being. Reading this you'll discover: ✔️Kapha Characteristics ✔️Kapha Doshas and Sub-Doshas ✔️Disorders Caused by Kapha Imbalance ✔️What Causes Kapha Dosha or Imbalance ✔️Ways to Deal with Kapha Dosha ✔️Kapha-Stabilizing Lifestyle Tips ✔️Clarification on Kapha Dosha and Fasting ✔️The Relation Between Kapha Dosha and Warm Foods ✔️Guidance on Different Kapha Diets ✔️What Tastes to Favor ✔️Foods that Pacify Kapha and What Foods to Avoid ✔️How to Eat for Kapha Balancing ✔️Kapha Friendly, Delicious Recipes ✔️Kapha Seasonal Guide ✔️Best Yoga Poses ✔️Essential Herbs ✔️Ideal Oil Massage for Kapha Balancing Just follow the book along, and you’ll reveal the easiest step-by-step routine to balance your Kapha Dosha by the end of it!

Preparing Ducklings Ducks and Water Feeding Your Ducks. Layers Mash for Ducks What is Grass Meal? What is Bean Meal? Drinking Water Conclusion Author Bio Introduction It must have been somewhere, and some time millenniums ago, when man found that the Mallard and Muscovy that he hunted in the marshes, and brought home to his family was a bird which could be domesticated. One is not very certain about which particular civilization decided that duck brought up in your own farmyard, was a good source of eating for the whole family. Roast duck, broiled duck, duck with seasonings and herbs, even wild duck, along with their cousins, the geese and the swans made excellent fare especially during times, when other food resources were not so easily available. Geese and swans are definitely not considered ducks, though they belong to the same family. The original ancestral species is the same, even though the characteristics differ. Geese and swans are larger in size and can be found in seawater, as well as in freshwater. Ducks are smaller in size, but prefer freshwater habitats. In the same manner, you should not confuse ducks with other aquatic birds like divers, coots and grebes. All of them are good eating, but they are unrelated, except for their liking for water. Apart from the meat content and eggs, ducks have also been reared for their soft down. Drakes are larger in size, when compared to the female ducks. Some of the popular species are Muscovy ducks, Mallards Paradise Shelduck and Aylesbury . The bills are long, broad and sometimes, they are serrated so that the ducks can feed on easily filtered aquatic plant and animal species. A duck shoot has always been a popular occupation of people who enjoy hunting for gain, especially when you are shooting these birds on the wing. A duck cannot fly when it is molting, and it normally molts before the duck group’s migration to a warmer climate.
