Diets & Doshas Series

RegisterIs your diet good for you? There are many popular diets, old and new: paleo, vegan, raw, vegetarian, and the standard American diet. Some proponents of these diets claim that their diet is the best. Ayurvedic wisdom dictates that what is good for one person, may not be good for another. There is not one diet that fits all. Each of us has a unique body, determined by the three ayurvedic doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Using these three ayurvedic principles, we can discover our body types and what foods are most balancing for us.
In these series of courses, we will examine these popular diets and how they affect the doshas. We will also make recommendations on how to make the diet suit your body type better.
The course elements include:
  • Origins and philosophy
  • Health benefits or detriments
  • Nutritional adequacy
  • The ayurvedic approach
  • Dosha compatibility
  • Seasonal and climate considerations
  • Sustainability
  • Case study and interviews
Are you confused about what diet to follow? The 5000-year-old ayurvedic knowledge prescribes a diet that suits your body type, the season, and the climate you live in. It’s not rocket science, in fact it’s quite intuitive. Buy learning a few simple natural qualities, you can recognize what your body needs and and by using the same qualities, you can choose the foods that will balance your mind, body, and spirit. The common-sense, time-tested approach of Ayurveda can be applied to any diet be it an ancient tradition or a modern invention.
