Ayurveda regards food and its role in daily life in a unique and integrated way. Understanding some basic principles will help one to recognize foods that help keep the body’s constitution or dosha in balance. Each person’s constitution or dosha has certain attributes or qualities. For example, popcorn is light and dry, whereas cheese is heavy and oily.
The qualities in a particular person combined with the qualities inherent in the food to determine how the body accepts and digests that food. Even one’s emotional outlook can be directly affected by the food one eats, such as the mind feeling sharp and irritable after eating hot chili peppers for example.
We offer an individualized approach, not the “one size fits all.” No fads diets or quick weight loss schemes. We offer a lifestyle change that works for you and your family’s needs that consider time constraints, work lifestyle, etc. There are no “Ayurvedic foods”, only a methodology of structuring diets according to your individual metabolic functions utilizing low inflammatory foods.
