There are many people who during the cold season feel very cold in the extremities such as the hands and legs...A great remedy for this is the use of cinnamon. One could take a small stick of cinnamon and boil it to make a decoction of the same and drink in sips. Cinnamon's warm quality aids circulation in the body and thus helps with cold extremities. Use Cinnamon in moderation as excess can aggravate the pitta* dosha leading to heat-related ailments in the system such as rashes etc.
*Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of traditional natural healing in the world. Also known as the sister of Yoga, it stresses deeply on nutrition and lifestyle for optimal health.
Ayurveda believes that there are three bio energies ie Vata ( Air and Ether Elements), Pitta ( Fire and Water ) and Kapha ( Earth and Water) within the body and their balance or imbalance determines the state of good or ill health .
