Dear Aanya: try to incorporate and follow the SVA Diet which consists of all only homemade food cooked with Mum’s ghee and Soma Salt. Make sure you get the Green Protein recipe on our SVA youtube channel (https://www.svayurveda.com/recipes/notorious-green-protein/) You can make the SVA Green Protein in either in its vegetarian version with homemade cheese, or the non-vegetarian version with chicken. Otherwise, here are some general tips to help ground your body type:
Do a self-massage with Vata Oil with Vitamin D and Magnesium every other day.
Use the Vitamin D Transdermal cream – apply on the lower back and on the pulse twice daily.
Incorporate some gentle pranayam or breathing exercise into your daily routine.
Take at least a 15-20 minute exposure to sunlight everyday.
Do the Samadhi set before meditation, or prayer.
Balance your rest and activity schedule so that you get some down time after every 2 hours of activity.
Make milk-date shake and drink it every night before bed. BDSDTB-img7oil milk with a couple cardamom pods, a stick of cinnamon; take off from heat, pour into a blender and add 1-2 pitted medjool dates and blend. Drink warm When prepared correctly and consumed regularly it will nourish and support your physiology in many ways.
Apply Super-Sport roll-on or Transdermal Cream followed by Bone Herb Transdermal cream wherever you experience cracking bones.
 Add Soma Cal capsules do your diet: one in the morning and one in the afternoon after lunch.
The whole logic here is that when Vyana vata goes out of balance, then we experience cracking bones. When Vyana vata is high – Vyana vata supports cellular circulation all over the body – then shleshak kapha goes low. Shleshak kapha lubricates the cellular system, as well as our joints, large and small joints all over the body. Doing massage with Vata pacifying verbalized oil will pacify Vyana vata, or your cellular vata. The Vitamin D in the oil will nurture the shleshak kapham, and the transdermal magnesium you will absorb from the oil will help you metabolize and use the calcium from the Soma Cal capsules more efficiently. This will help the Vyana vata aggravation of your joints, and the popping sound will go away, because magnesium will enhance the absorption of Vitamin D and Calcium.
Adding and eating extra protein and ghee in your diet will help pacify Vyana vata further, and support shleshak kapha.
Remember: doing too much physical activity without enough rest is aggravating to vyana vata and burns off shleshak kapha unduly. For your body type, you need to do gentle physical activity, and definitely adopt a gentle kind of yoga exercise.
So you see, you have to address your issue from all possible angles: diet, activity, nutritional supplementation, then only, eventually, specific ayurvedic herbs, such as the Bone Herb (Cissus quadrangularis), which has a specific effect on nurturing and supporting the health of the bone tissues and the joints, then only will it truly help you. This is the holistic SVA approach. This will not only address your imbalance but will make you feel more energetic and blissful overall. Thank you.
