Ask Cate Questions on this Episode
1. Good evening everyone. I am new to ayurveda. In the past week I am noticing my body getting more dehydrated. This begins with less easy bowel movements, feeling dehydrated even with drinking water, today my lips are very dry and I feel like I might be getting a cold. Any suggestions?
2. This is for the podcast as it might help others too: my 4 year old son takes swimming lessons at an indoor pool. I am wondering if we should put lessons on hold for the winter. Will it predispose him to imbalances and illness to be cold and wet in the winter? We live in the Bay Area - not the coldest but not warm in winter either. It is very windy here as you know. Sorry I don't know what my son's dosha is. I can tell you I am a strong vata and he is not. 
3. My client's daughter(20 y.o.) has reflux esophagitis, she can not swallow the food and is taking only liquids. Shell I refer her to an Ayurvedic doctor, because traditional medicine couldn't help her? Or Ayurveda is powerless with such a disease?
