Eating for Your Body Type

Do you struggle with what to eat or have trouble losing weight? There are many diets out there, but how to choose one that works for you? According to Ayurvedic principles, there are 3 major body types - Vata, Pitta, Kapha. Each person is generally dominant in 1 body type and requires different nutrition. While some body types do best with salads and light food, other body types do better with more grounding food. In this seminar, we will review Ayurvedic body types, take a dosha quiz, and explore nutritional suggestions for each type. 

Topics covered:

Spring Detox

This season is a time where nature begins to reawaken - along with our own metabolism that kickstarts after winter. When the body is exposed to toxins (from food, environment, stress) and when it cannot eliminate fast enough, this can build up and cause disease. Though spring is a great time to start a detox, it can be harmful if not done appropriately or according to what your body needs. Join this seminar to learn safe, effective methods of detox.

Topics covered:

Reducing Repetitive Strain Injuries

Workplace injuries are becoming an increasing health risk for many people. Spending hours at the desk, overworking joints & ligaments, poor posture and infrequent breaks add to the strain. Many people suffer from headaches, eye strain, carpal tunnel, tendonitis or other concerns that go undiagnosed. Many of these concerns can be prevented with naturopathic tools such as self-care exercises, balanced diet, massage, acupuncture and natural anti-inflammatories. In this seminar you will learn to identify sources of strain in your body and take home tips for your health.
