I started 2020 with my first Ayurveda class at YogaYoga with Bodil Mauritzen. It was three hours packed with info. Ayurveda is a 4000 year old Indian way of looking at our health through our body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Here, I share a few insights with you when it comes to food. Ayurveda also include stones, sounds and smell.
On YouTube you can find info from Banyan Botanicals, and there is a podcast Yogaland that has four episodes on Ayurveda.
In India the best Ayurvedic clinics are in Kerala and Pune. An Ayurvedic doctor will most likely give you a pill for 2-3 months and ask you to make a few changes.
It is the imbalance in the Dosha we are trying to correct. Most likely you´ll have an imbalance in what is your Dosha. My Dosha is Pitta/Kapha hence here are my imbalance. Winter season is Kapha, Pitta is spring and summer, and autumn is Vata. In the season that is your Dosha be extra viglient about detecting the imbalances. It is after digestion your body starts to repair the deeper layers of you body.
If you want to loose weight, as I do, Kapha diet is the best. Remember that if you eat a lot off one food, it´ll loose its effect. Ghee in the food makes sure nutrition is transported to your cells and that waste is transported out of your system.
A new habit takes about 17-21 days do manifest in your system. Ayurveda recommends going to a restaurant once a week so you don´t get stuck in your food habits.
