    Food as Medicine: An Ayurvedic Approach to Eating for Perfect Health & Balance

    in Health

    Today, Nick and Joanna will be talking about how Ayurveda, the over 5000 year old ancient healing tradition from India, views food and how to eat in an Ayurvedic lifestyle.  Ayurveda views food as medicine and taste or "Rasa" as so much more that just flavor in the mouth.  It is about flavor for life! We do not count calories, fat grams, protien, carbs or points.  It is as much about living in harmony with nature, the seasons and ourselves by knowing your own constitutional type or "Dosha", as it is about keeping the digestive fire or "Agni" kindled so that nutrients are properly absorbed and toxins processed and released from the physiology for perfect health and wellbeing.  We use herbs and spices to nourish, cleanse and decrease inflammation so that the body can heal itself as it already knows how to do. 


    We will talk about the Six Flavors and how incorporating them into every meal creates not only satiety, but also a nourishing, balanced diet that provides all of the necessary nutrients for a body-mind that is healthy, strong, vital and at perfect weight.  In Ayurveda, weight loss is not a goal in and of itself. We go after perfect health, and weight loss (or gain, if needed) is a by-product. We will also be talking about how to use food to manage and correct imbalances that can or have already lead to disease. 


    Learn more about the Ayurvedic Cooking series which will be held in Havertown, PA monthly from March - June. Each 3-hour class will include a 90 minute lecture on Ayurvedic medicine and then a 90 minute cooking demonstration and tasting.
