Ayurvedic Medicine is centralized and always starts with the gut. Modern medical research is now recognizing the importance importance of gut health on the whole body. Food and diet is medicine. The balance of the gut and the optimization of the digestive strength with food, is the core of Ayurvedic Medicine. Ayurveda is a health system that tries to get to the root of imbalance. Everyone has heard you are what you eat but Ayurvedic Medicine emphasizes you are what you digest. This system recognizes that we are all unique and what might be helpful for one person might not be helpful for another person. Have you ever wondered why one person can eat whatever they want and someone else will eat the same amount and put on a lot of weight? This system organizes people into three different body types or underlying structural systems that govern specific functions of the body and mind. Each body type has certain physiological functions and organs that tend to get imbalanced. These body types have 3 different metabolic rates, digestive rates, energy levels, physical exercises and different food/ lifestyle practices that are personalized to your the unique body type. Ayurveda is a tailored system to balance these systems with food and lifestyle.
