You’re in tune with your body’s physical and emotional needs. You understand the importance of finding balance in all areas of your life not just with food.
Ayurveda, meaning “the science of life,” originated in India as a holistic approach to create balance within the mind and body by aligning oneself with nature. According to this theory, by eating in accordance with one’s Ayurvedic body type, or dosha, balance and good health can be restored. The Ayurvedic diet focuses on the six basic tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent. The Ayurvedic approach usually includes a combination of yoga, breathing exercises, meditation, mantras, cleanses, and massaging the skin with dosha-specific oil.
This is just one of over 100 dietary theories that we cover at Integrative Nutrition.
At Integrative Nutrition, our students learn to take a holistic approach to food. Our nutrition curriculum focuses on bio-individuality, the idea that there is no one way of eating that works for everyone. That’s why we cover the pros and cons of over 100 dietary theories to help you find the foods and lifestyle that make you feel your best!
