You are what you eat: nutrition in accordance with natural laws

Everything we absorb using the senses, what we eat and what we experience permeates the levels of positivity and negativity.

Each of us has a certain physical and mental constitution (Dosha), which distinguishes us from others. If we know our own nature, we can consciously influence these energy principles and balance the interaction of the three Doshas: Vata, Pittaand Kapha.

The Doshas are composed of the five elements of earth, water, fire, air and space. VATA (space/air) is responsible for movement in the body; PITTA (fire/water) ensures optimal metabolism and digestion; and KAPHA (earth/water) stands for a structuring, stabilising principle.

According to Ayurveda, type-specific diet is the key to holistic wellbeing.  If the balance is ‘out of balance’, we can restore it through deliberate and conscious actions. For example, try to only eat ingredients that are freshly and carefully prepared.
