An Ayurvedic Approach to Gut Health

Saturday, June 22, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Swati Mhaske.

Ayurvedic medicine is a 5,000-year-old mind/body healing system based on Vedic knowledge, fused with modern science. It concentrates on prevention and understanding one's own makeup, and focuses on how the outer world and environment affect one's daily life. The concept of agni, or digestive fire, is seen by Ayurveda as the very source of life and is the primary indicator of gut health. Ayurveda teaches us that impaired agni is at the root of every imbalance and disease. During this workshop, you will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of agni and learn practical tools with which to tend to your own agni. Topics include: 

  • What is gut health and digestive fire?
  • Ayurveda on gut health and diseases
  • Prakriti (Individual Constitution) and digestion correlation
  • Healthy recipes (includes handouts)
  • Six tastes and gut health
  • Remedies to poor gut health
