The focus of functional nutrition is not on specific dietary theories or current fads, nor on counting calories and calculating macronutrients. Instead, the focus is on designing a targeted and highly individualized diet & lifestyle protocol to help the individual shift their environment in a way that supports optimal health and wellness.
Ayurveda & Ayurvedic Nutrition
Ayurveda 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.Book Online
