Nutrition Wellness Course

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

All humans have at one time or another dreamt of becoming immortal. Even though we know that everything that is created is eventually destroyed, each of us secretly cherish the hope that Death might in our one case make an exception. India’s ancient rishis (Seers) studied this question and addressed it in hymns which they collected into the oldest compositions of the human race, the Vedas. The Vedas, which are the foundation of Indian culture, emphasize that a potential for immortality is every individual’s birth right. Every embodied individual is composed of a body, mind and a spirit.
Ayurveda teaches that food is the Prana, or life force, of living beings, and that life is a continual search for food. “Life lives off life”, in the words of a Sanskrit proverb: we maintain our own lives by consuming other living beings. Eating is a sacred act, an offering made into the intestinal digestive fire in such a way that the offering is made into the external sacrificial fires.
“We are, what we eat”, is a unique principle of Ayurvedic Nutrition. The changes in our health can be observed through conscious cooking. Whenever healthy living is discussed, food plays a very important role in the discussion. Hence how we cook, how we eat and under what circumstances we eat has a deeper impact on our health (both physical as well as mental). It is important to pay attention to foods we consume to make sure that our digestion stays strong. There are basic rules for food combination which has to be understood thoroughly. Ex : Fruit should never be combined with dairy products or meat and dairy should never be eaten together, etc.
