'We aren't only what we eat but what we digest and absorb.'
One of the most effective ways to look and feel more beautiful is to optimise your digestion through proper food combining, implementing healing foods, nourishing tonics and detoxing (physically and emotionally). When our digestion is functioning at its optimum, our body absorbs beautifying minerals and nutrients quickly. We flush toxins out more efficiently, enabling rejuvenation to occur at a cellular level. The body heals, the skin glows, and the mind gains clarity!
'What might be fantastically therapeutic for your friend may not necessarily suit you.'
"The term Ayurveda is the combination of two words AAYUS and VEDA. AAYUS means life and VEDA means knowledge or science". Hence the term 'Ayurveda' means the Science of life'
According to the 5000- year old science, we each have a 'unique biology'. We are made up of three different 'body types' which creates our specific physical and personality characteristics, known as Doshas. Vata, Pitta and Kapha, reflecting two qualities of the five universal elements (Ether, Air, Water, fire, earth). We each have varying proportions of each dosha, generally one or two in dominance.
💨 VATA- Air + Ether ⠀
🔥PITTA - Fire + Water ⠀
🌳 KAPHA -Earth + Water
Ayurveda believes, what, how, and when we eat, lifestyle and beauty routine should be specific to our body type for optimising digestion and vitality. The time of day, the season and where we live is also essential when developing an Ayurvedic Nutrition style.
'There is a deep mind-body synergy.'
The mind and body are interconnected, our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning. In the same way, our diet and exercise routine can positively or negatively impact our mind.
'The face is a great indicator of what's going on inside the body.'
By studying skin conditions and changes, we can determine imbalances within the body. Because each area of the face relates to an organ, disharmony in that internal area will lead to a change in the complexion, texture or moisture of the corresponding facial area.
