I’ve been thinking about which direction I want to take this blog. My mission is to show people how to use food to HEAL their bodies from preventable illnesses.
About 95% of the people who will read my blog will have grown up with Western medicine. Don’t get me wrong, there have been INCREDIBLE innovation in this area… 100 years ago, reattaching a severed hand would be impossible, but now it happens regularly.
The down side of Western medicine is that it is too focused on treating one symptom at a time. Ayurveda, on the other hand, notices when small aspects of your life is out of balance and corrects the issue BEFORE it progresses into a chronic illness.
So, from now on, I’ll use a combination of modern science to explain the ancient healing art of Ayurveda. One quick example is the issue of heartburn. Anyone who has dealt with this knows that it’s a fiery feeling in your throat and it often happens when you eat too much spicy food.
Western medicine would either conclude that you need a pill to fight those symptoms or cut out spicy food altogether. Ayurveda, however, would say simply add more water to any spicy meal you eat and maybe have it once a week so your body can properly burn off the excess heat.
I hope y’all enjoy this new path I’m taking and with every blog post you’ll have one great tip you can include in your life to optimize your health.
