Elements of Nature and Body Types based on Ayurveda and Tibetan Medicine
Discussion. Open to All. Limit 12 people.
I would like to have my participants go through a questionnaire and determine their body type according to the principals of Ayurveda (Ancient Indian Medicine) and Tibetan medicine. Both these traditional medicines believe that we are all composed of different elements like Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Space. I will then give glimpses of food charts for different body types. This will give a direction for all the participants to attempt to eat according to their body types.
I am trained as a scientist with a Ph.D. degree in Molecular Biology and 16 years of experience in Biomedical research. I have published more than 20 research papers in peer reviewed journals and my publications have been cited more than 2500 times. Growing up in India I learned Hatha Yoga in my school and used Yoga to keep my body fit and healthy. Since my infant child was diagnosed with chronic asthma, I have explored the ancient healing arts including Ayurveda and Yoga. I attributed the cause of my son’s allergies to the chemicals added to the processed foods. Using a combination of Ayurveda and Yoga therapy and staying away from allergy causing agents, my son became asthma free and currently leads a healthy life. My interest in ancients healing arts attracted me to study a short term Tibetan medicine course for 3 weeks in 2016. I have been using the principals of Ayurveda and Tibetan medicine and following the food charts for my own body type to stay away from medications so far.
