The Doshas and the Cycles

Doshas Life Cycle

From the book, Spiritual Nutrition:  The seasons, the time of day, and one’s age are also forces affecting the balance of the doshas. From birth to the teen years, the predominant dosha is kapha.

Psychology of Eating Patterns

From Dr. Cousens’ book, Conscious Eating: As we evolve in body, mind and spirit, the dietary needs of our body also change. The diet not only changes with the seasons, but with the maturation of our emotional, mental, and spiritual state. Remaining sensitive to our mind-body-spirit responses to our food is important in helping us make the appropriate adjustments in dietary intake. These shifts are guided by intuition and aided by the awareness of changes in our tastes for different textures, foods, colors, and smells. As we become healthy, we often require less food because the body is better able […]

The Dosha Breakdown

The Spiritual Nutrition live-food diet is qualitatively different from the classic Ayurvedic diet, which aims primarily at balancing the doshas to prevent or heal disease. Although classical Ayurveda does not usually recommend a 100-percent live-food diet, we can certainly employ its principles to create an optimal, individualized, Spiritual Nutrition diet for ourselves.  Tridosha Defined There are many perspectives we can use to help guide our choice of diet. The tridosha system of the science of Ayurveda is particularly useful in helping us maintain our awareness of nutrition as the interaction between the forces of food and our own dynamic forces. […]
