In this solo episode, Colette continues her series on the srotas or channels of the body. If you’re unfamiliar with the Ayurvedic wisdom on the channels of the body, check out the first episode in this series #272 titled, The Food Channel & The Srotas where Colette does an introduction to the srotas.

  • The opening, passage and formation of asthi vaha srotas.
  • The subdoshas governing asthi vaha srotas.
  • Signs and symptoms of an imbalance in the channels.
  • Causes of aggravation of the asthi vaha srotas.
