Ayurveda, a 5000-year-old integrative approach to health, harmonizes our high-tech culture with balancing daily rituals; not through deprivation but with positive self-care and nourishment.
Ayurveda is one of the most effective and established holistic healing approaches to whole health, body, mind and spirit. Some immediate results you may experience are weight loss, increased energy and vitality, improved skin and a greater sense of clarity and purpose.
Instead of having to guess which foods, herbs, and lifestyle choices are appropriate for you, a path to wellness is determined balancing with taste, season and proper “dosha” (or energy type), by a skilled Ayurvedic practitioner. This takes all the guesswork out of getting healthy. The benefits that occur are not only felt in your body – they also run deep into your mental and emotional well-being. This integrative approach to health allows you to become a balanced, vital, happy person with little effort. After all, who needs more to do?
How can I get started?
Ayurveda determined that eating according to the body’s natural response to the changing seasons will ultimately bring about balance.
Pratima Raichur, Ayurvedic skin specialist, writes in her book, “Absolute Beauty” that in this season of dry, cold, windy weather, when our complexion needs hydration and our feet and hands begin to crack, we can opt to select foods that are soupy, stewed, slightly oilier than summer, and especially warm, and cooked. Some examples to get into the rhythm of this season are butternut squash soup, chicken soup with vegetables, or grass-fed beef stew if you eat meat.
Avoiding cold water, iced drinks, along with foods directly out of the refrigerator, hampers our delicate digestion, which when out of balance creates a perfect storm for inflammation. (Learn more about healing the gut in Dr. Taz’s book “The Belly Fix”). Fruits such as watermelon and cantaloupe can be avoided in the fall, favoring bananas, avocado, soaked raisins and soaked dates.
