Food for Health

In this episode we look at Ahara, food and drink. It's one of the five pillars of health. You want a diet that fuels you and gives your system the nutrients it needs to function well.

Avoiding snacking improves your Agni, digestive capability, and including fermented foods improves the quality of your micro-biome.

Consider the quality of your GI tract, it's lining called an inner skin, and the peristaltic movement. In Ayurveda we call this Grahani. Inner skin is nourished much like your outer skin.

Savouring your meals and including various tastes and textures will help you absorb the bio-available nutrients.

Listen in for a peek into the history of Ayurvedic Medicine and how you can improved your appetite for life.
