As one of the oldest medicinal systems in history, Ayurvedic principles and foods work with the body’s innate intelligence in order to promote natural self-healing.
Ayurvedic diets are customized depending on someone’s specific body type (or “constitution”), called a dosha. Because Ayurveda is based on rhythmic changes found in nature — including the rise and fall of the sun each day, the changing seasons, and the phases of life (birth, aging and death) — foods included in an Ayurvedic diet change throughout the year and can also fluctuate throughout someone’s lifetime.
Ayurvedic diets are based on ancient medicinal practices that promote “holistic” balance in the physical body and mind in order to manage or treat various health problems. Today, Ayurvedic medicine is considered a type of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), which means it can be used along with conventional “Western” medicine practices and/or also incorporate various other CAM treatments, such as use of homeopathy, massage, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy and exercise.
Some of the main benefits associated with Ayurvedic diets include:
- Improved digestive and metabolic processes
- Improved heath of the gut/microbiome
- Weight management
- Enhanced detoxification
- Less anxiety and more inner calm
- Improved fertility and sexual/reproductive health
- Improved efficiency in the excretion process (help passing bowel movements)
- Improved functionality and range of motion due to decreased inflammation
