One of the most important things that can be done to affect your overall health is to modify your diet. Diet, along with stress, is perhaps the most important factor that determines your overall health. I say this not necessarily from a the standpoint scientific standpoint (although a good diet has numerous medical benefits) but from an Ayurvedic standpoint. Auyrveda emphasizes not only curative procedures but preventative maintainance (such as a health diet) to prevent an imbalance of each person’s doshas.
I have always been a big believer in holistic methods of maintaining good health. This is a perspective that fits into Ayurveda extremely well. I’ve done weight training, treadmill and trail running, and i’ve eliminated as much highly processed food from from my diet at possible. I’ve also maintained positive relationships with family, friends, and co-workers while either repairing broken relationships or casting negative relationships aside.
