Restoring Balance: Ayurvedic Insights into Healthy Eating

Jun 17 & 17

The simple process of restoring our ability to feel the body’s natural signals of hunger and satiety is probably the most powerful weight regulating technique of all, says renowned Ayurvedic physician Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar in this interview.

A frequent presenter at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA, Dr. Kshirsagar talks about why prevention and healing is not just about keeping the balance of the three doshas. While this is important, Ayurveda also places primary emphasis on maintaining the health of Agni, the digestive fire.

The key to health is not just what we eat, but how we metabolize and transform what we eat. Poor or sluggish metabolism leads to a host of imbalances, including cravings, weight gain, low energy, and depression. In the long run, imbalanced and inadequate metabolism also predisposes us to numerous chronic diseases, including diabetes and heart disease.

Ayurveda may be thousands of years old, but interestingly, it has long emphasized what modern medicine has just started to realize: The most important and potent form of medicine lies not in drugs or treatments, but in how we take care of our body. And this is not just once we fall ill, but throughout our life.

Dr. Kshirsagar lays out the simple framework of Ayurveda for retaining digestive balance and shares observations from his clinical practice about some of the most common problems he has seen improve or completely disappear with simple Ayurvedic approaches to creating greater balance in our daily eating habits and restoring the health of the digestive fire.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
