DescriptionThe practice of functional nutrition addresses the person as a whole. A functional nutrition practitioner looks at the patient’s history, genetics, lifestyle and dietary habits in order to understand the root causes of ill health. They work closely with each person to help them appreciate the unique workings of their body and understand what is going on a biochemical, emotional and energetic level. The focus is not on specific dietary theories and current fads; the focus ison creating a highly targeted diet and lifestyle plan to help each patient shift their internal and external environment to eradicate disease and achieve optimal health and longevity.
Ayurveda & Ayurvedic Nutrition
DescriptionAyurveda is considered to be the oldest healing science, originating in India over 5,000 years ago. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means Science of Life: “Ayu” means life and“Veda” is knowledge or science. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to restoring balance in one’s life, thinking, diet & lifestyle. Knowledge of Ayurveda enables you to understand how to live in accordance with your unique constitution (dosha) and to follow nature’s cycles in order to restore balance and achieve optimal health. In Ayurvedic nutrition, the first and most important step is determining your individual constitution and the root causes of imbalance that manifest in disease symptoms. Ayurveda says that our body’s natural state is one of balance and health. Most of us have shifted away from this state because we oftentimes miss the signals of distress. Ayurveda believes that by creating an optimal environment that supports our body’s natural healing process, we can help restore its internal balance.
