Ayurveda is the world’s oldest health system. It is the sister science of yoga and focuses on the mind-body connection. The system helps individuals find balance of mind and body through proper nutrition, self-care, seasonal eating, and daily practices.
After traditional diets left Sahara Rose with a slew of health issues, including entering perimenopause at the age of 21, she rediscovered Ayurveda and realized that with some modernization, it can be an effective health system for many women today.
At its core, Ayurveda states that every person is made of five basic elements found in the universe: space, air, fire, water and earth. The varying combination of those elements create three doshas or energy forces: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
By altering your diet based on which type of dosha you are, you can find balance and improve your overall health.
