About the course:
Following an Ayurvedic diet does not mean one has to be in India or that one has to eat Indian food or that. Ayurveda is rather a universal principle that can be applied to our food intake and preparation anywhere in the world. Ayurveda treasures food as medicine.
This course is about understanding what is nutrition from an Ayurvedic perspective and how you can apply this science to your life regardless of what culture you come from or what food ingredients you have available.
Dr. Sujatha will explain how you can find the right Ayurvedic nutrition for oneself without falling into generalised concepts and trends we see around us. You will learn how to identify when it is good to be vegan, vegetarian or when to eat animal protein if at all it is needed.
Through her advice and nutritional expertise Dr. Sujatha Kekada encourages you to take nutrition into your hands while understanding the science behind it.
Explore how different kinds of diet affect our constitution and mind. Tuning into food as energy source and knowing how to make this energy available can assist us to live a more balanced life. Most importantly, you will learn how to use food and spices as medicine.
Dr. Sujatha will also cover how to do simple detoxes at home as we learn about fasting and its benefits.
This course is for anyone who wants to be more attuned to their bodies, eat more harmoniously with nature and for their own specific needs.
