At the Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Medical Clinic, we create an individualized nutritional plan based on Ayurveda’s basic principles, in consideration of your body type and disease process.
In Ayurvedic medicine, food is considered sacred. It provides nutrients for the body’s growth, maintenance, repair and reproduction. Adequate nutrition from food is necessary to sustain life.
Nutritional requirements vary per person, depending upon body type, season, environment and place. Five basic Ayurvedic elements compose both the world as well as our human forms. Ether (space), air, fire, water and earth. A person can be any one dosha or any combination of these three dosha element representations. VAT (ether + air), PIT (fire + water), Kaph (water + earth).
Our genes are millions of years old and require the same ancient basic nutrition of our ancestors. Unfortunately, our basic food chain (air, water, food) has been badly corrupted causing the increase of cancers, heart diseases, diabetes, auto-immune diseases and many other chronic diseases despite tremendous advancement in scientific knowledge.
Your nutritional plan will include detoxification and stress reduction through yoga, breathing and other exercises, herbal or nutritional supplements, and prescription drugs for achieving your optimal health.
