Your bone density and ferocious winds

The wind is maddening right now in Castlemaine. It has lost at the board game and like a petulant childis trying to mess up all the pieces, or it is in a hurry to get somewhere. Either way, it's the boss right now. I'm looking at it through my window.

You don't really know what someone has inside. We create impressions on others by what we imagine we feel ourselves, no brainer, but here's something I bet you never thought about another person - their bone density.

When I look at how people handle the wind, some folks look weathered and beaten (me) and others look vibrant and refreshed, and it has to do with how physically sturdy you are and I'm not talking being overweight. Feel someone's bones, get them to lay their arm on you in resting position and feel how heavy their bones are. You might be surprised by it. Some folks may have a heavier set to them than first appears. This is where people get confused about Kapha dosha. We assume that Kapha just means being chubby but it has the quality of denseness to it and you can find this out via bone structure.

The idea of denseness creates a compactness or as Dr Lad likes to say, the Kapha molescules like to hug each other, which can lead to a doshic imbalance of being stuck, set in their ways (literally) or stubbornness. Being out in a wind like today can help to move the molecules about and create kinetic energy. These folks would have a rosiness to their cheeks from a walk in the wild.

And the converse is assuming that someone that has weight to them also has density in their list of qualities. Some naturally lighter folks can gain weight because their bodies crave nutrition to build dense tissue so the fat molecules come in to try and remedy the imbalance. These folks should NOT go out in wind, or over exercise, they need rejuvenation, rest, and better eating habits and better quality food. 

So get a friend to do the test for you and see if it ties in with what you naturally like to do.

You won't see me on the streets today.
