Description

We are in an era where people are taking a more spiritual and respectful approach to their bodies. Be more aware, more in tune with your body's inner voice. Your goal is to develop your own individual immune system to such a degree that the body becomes its own best physician.

Let your food be your medicine. A balanced diet of natural foods is the best way to energise and revitalize. Most people who have been exposed to ayurvedic cooking do not accept it but are happily converted to the healthy style of eating it offers. Your only regret will be that you didn't discover it a lot earlier.
