    Imagine a healthcare system that takes you as an individual fully into account. One of the fathers of modern medicine, Hippocrates said, 'It is more important to know what sort of person has the disease, than to know what sort of disease a person has.'

    Ayurveda For You - Keep Your Liver Healthy With Ayurveda
    Liver congestion is among the leading health problems in the world. What's more, it usually takes many years of chronic liver congestion before liver damage becomes apparent. This is because liver enzyme levels in the blood only show when there is advanced liver cell destruction. Someone could have a liver problem for years and have physical complaints but the liver enzyme levels in the blood won't show until it is fairly advanced.

    Finding Balance In The Body By Dr Yesheen Singh
    Balance, equilibrium, harmony... we use these words to describe the process of making equal, evening out, creating stability. Balance is not a static state, but rather a dynamic one, like trying to maintain your footing while standing on an ocean rock with the waves rolling in around your feet. Just as you find your balance another wave rolls in, requiring a muscular response to keep balanced. In life these waves represent the internal and external changes in our mind, body and spirit. Believe it or not, we get to choose how big the waves will be, and therefore how much energy we need to spend to counter them. The bigger the wave the more expensive or exhaustive it is for us.

    In a modern world where we are inundated by stress, high-demands, pollution and adulterated views of reality, it is crucial that the modern woman regains her Shakti (sacred force) and balance by aligning her mind-body-spirit with the rhythms of Nature. Ayurveda describes in great detail the three doshas (constitutional types) that correspond to the three stages of a woman's life: Childhood is represented by Kapha; womanhood by Pitta and old age by Vata. Each phase in a woman's life serves a distinct purpose in her physical, mental, and spiritual evolution. From irregular menstruation, pregnancy and menopause, Ayurveda can help women regain balance.

  46. Power Up On Plants By Kelly Schreuder
    Power Up On Plants By Kelly Schreuder

    A good diet should support optimum wellness and achieve goals like balanced weight, healthier gut function or improved cholesterol profiles. Despite many variations in the issues I treat, one message is clear: a healthy, preventive diet for most conditions is based on a variety of real foods, including plenty of plant foods such as whole grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables and vegetable oils like olive oil. We can then add contributions from all other food groups to ensure variety and enough protein, essential fats and micronutrients like iron and calcium. Also important is minimising potentially dangerous and unhealthy foods and substances like alcohol, processed meat, excess salt and refined sugar.
