My foundation draws on a wealth of valuable information from Ayurveda and Chinese medicine, along with modern nutritional knowledge.
Our daily food is our foundation of health
Our daily food forms the foundation of our nutritional, biochemical and energetic health.
Our food choices influence our
• energy levels throughout the day.
• moods and emotional resilience
• immune health
• mental clarity or lack of it
• physical fitness and musculoskeletal health
• cellular health
• healthy aging through all the phases of life
Diet and nutrition actually form the basis of Chinese medicine, because the foods we eat daily effect our health profoundly, especially over time.
Modern research shows that many chronic and degenerative conditions are caused by nutritional deficit. Working to facilitate positive, constructive dietary changes, allows us to make healthy choices throughout life.
Our daily food is one of our best medicines.
In ancient times, foods were chosen and prepared for the healing qualities they would impart. Many herbs are classified as “food-grade herbs” because they can be used in daily cooking to improve vigor, enhance longevity, support digestion and be used to help heal specific ailments.
Food choices either support us in our spiritual journey and walk through this world or hinder us. Our dietary and nutritional needs change during each phase of our life, with seasonal or climate changes and with the level of activity in our lives. Thus, we need to periodically readjust.
