“When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need.” - Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb
Eat, move, and live… better. We often hear the common phrase 'you are what you eat'. There is a natural instinct within all of us to follow a healthy balanced diet. Deep down inside we know what is good and what is not good for us but we chose to ignore the body and mind. Indeed, we understand that our diet has a significant impact on our body and even our state of consciousness. The Vedic literatures provide a scientific guide to our diet and the process of eating; what, when, how, and much more.
The digestive system is one of the most important systems in the body and links all the other systems together. A poor digestive system is the core problem to many health conditions. It is affected not just by what we eat but also by our emotions. An awareness of the digestive processes and the choices we make in eating can help to achieve physical, emotional and mental balance, bringing peace and overall well being. In this seminar you will learn how to eat in a healthy way that nurtures your body, mind and soul.
