Think of Ayurveda as preventative health self-care through diet and lifestyle. But it’s not “a diet.” Nor is it Woo Woo. It’s based on the laws of nature. No one food is good or bad, it’s about checking in to what you need that day, and listening to the real-time feedback your body is giving. It’s not a quick fix. It’s long-term and reverses imbalances and heals the tissues. Every single food item, lifestyle choice or activity can be seen through an Ayurvedic lens, and anything can be healing if given for the right reason at the right time to the right person. It teaches us to be self-reliant and trust in our choices.
