Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old traditional Hindu system of medicine with abundant secrets to a healthy and fulfilling life. One can use the wisdom of Ayurveda to gain inner peace, balance in bodily systems, longevity, vitality, and good health.
We live in a world that is obsessed with diet culture. Food companies selling products that have the label diet are an instant hit among the calorie-conscious crowd. Many times, they are made from unhealthy artificial sweeteners or shortening that can cause a number of health hazards. Thus, dieting as such can cause more health hazards than offer benefits. Research has shown that a combination of 80% optimum diet and 20%exercise can help people achieve their desired weight loss results. While following a specific diet is important in achieving weight loss goals, starving the body or eating diet-labeled foods do more harm than help in this endeavour.
Ayurveda is a holistic approach to human life. It addresses the mind, body, and soul. It treats the body as a temple which needs to be worshipped. Use of packaged, artificial, and chemically grown foods is considered as an abuse to the body.
Ayurveda talks of being natural and achieving inner balance by serving the body simple, healthy, and nourishing food.
