An introduction to Ayurvedic cleansing for maximal health and vitality


As the holiday season fast approaches with all the rich comforting foods of celebration, our bodies must face the daunting task of trying to assimilate the enormous calorie excess.  For thousands of years, Ayurvedic medicine has used kitchari cleanses, fasting protocols, panchakarma, and herbal remedies to weave in throughout the year enabling the human body to use its inner wisdom to clear out blocked gastric channels and revitalize tissues for renewed digestive power and overall strength.  We will explore some simple methods that can be implemented even in today’s fast-paced busy world.

                                The yogic art and science of how and when to eat for improved circadian rhythm and overall wellbeing

A great deal of time is spent on what types of foods constitute a healthy diet.  Ayurvedic medicine also places much focus on the timing of eating and the methodological protocol for consuming a meal.  Modern science is now corroborating that meal timing and the way a person consumes food has a significant impact on the prevention of many disorders such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, and hypertension, to name a few.   In this seminar, we will review the basic principles of how and when to eat in order to make a major impact on health and healing.

                                                         The Ayurvedic philosophy on boosting immunity during cold and flu season

The natural forces, both innately within the human body and in our environment offer many immune-boosting miracles.  This seminar will take a dive into what Ayurveda suggests for one to maintain a balanced robust immune system amidst a diverse and ever-changing world of viruses and microbes, many of them our buddies.  We will explore how evidence-based scientific research is now supporting such ancient precepts.
