Healing with Ancient Knowledge

Jun 25, 2019 06:38PM

For thousands of years, Ayurvedic knowledge has helped people prevent and recover from illness. This practice revolves around food, nutrition and lifestyle. The key to good health is digestion. Digestion is your body’s ability to transform the food you eat into nutrients and then absorb them. Some food/habits which help digestion are: consuming seasonal foods, eating raw food and cooked food separately, eating fresh foods (avoid left-overs), and avoiding processed and refined foods. It is important to know your individual constitution and what foods and spices are good for you. Learn simple, yet important lifestyle changes such as sitting and eating your meal mindfully and slowly. It’s important to enjoy the food you eat (avoid TV, phones, reading, etc.). Eating warm food is easier to digest and it creates a soothing, relaxing feeling throughout your body. You can stop your cravings, feel satisfied and be healthy by calling for a private consultation to learn what’s good for your unique constitution. You can join a food preparation workshop to learn how to combine food and enjoy the aromas, tastes and benefits of spices. U.S. life expectancy could be longer if people led slower-paced, less stressful lives, ate non-contaminated, healthier foods, and had overall better eating habits. For a greater understanding of your constitution and how you can bring your mind/body back to a healthy balance, call:
