What is Ayurvedic Nutrition?
The foundation of Ayurvedic nutrition is based on the idea that you are the result of what, when, where, how and why you eat. Ayurveda offers a balanced approach to preparing, eating and digesting your food based on your unique body-mind type or Dosha, as well as the time of day, the season, your life-cycle and where you live.
Ayurveda translates from Sanskrit as the science of life. Alternatively it can be understood as “a way of living with awareness and promoting longevity.” It is a generic term for a traditional Indian medical system that encompasses philosophy, diet, and yoga as well as mental and spiritual refinement as part of its teachings. It focuses on preventing disease and optimizing vitality, rather than eliminating disease.
Ayurvedic Nutrition can be used to help address stress, dietary issues, digestion, skin conditions, sleep issues, menstruation, menopause, and energy levels.
What you need to know
Initially you will fill out four questionnaires to help Steph assess and evaluate your Ayurvedic constitutional type. e.g. Vata; Pitta; or Kapha.
You will need to have kept a food diary for 4 – 5 days prior to consultation and Steph's evaluation of your questionnaires.
Steph will set-up an in-person meeting (or a conference call) to discuss her evaluation, discover more about you, and make recommendations on dietary changes / modifications based on your Ayurvedic constitution, and will send you her written assessment so you can follow through with her assessment.
Forty days post your initial consultation and follow though with Steph’s assessment she recommends a follow-up consult to see how you are doing and make any modifications.
