Ayurvedic diet : an individual approach

Ayurveda has always had an individualized approach to nutrition. Fine out how you structure your diet to fit your constitution. One of the fundamental ideas in Ayurveda is that your body is intelligent and seeks health if you support it through good habits. Additionally, health is defined as a dynamic state – not just the absence of disease as in modern medicine. The idea in Ayurvedic nutrition is that health can be increased not just maintained through right lifestyle and diet. Thus, an Ayurvedic diet is an individualized approach that brings a dynamic state of being.

Please note that as of September 2019 Atreya will no longer be giving live classes during the question and answer sessions on Monday morning. Instead Atreya is sharing 5 different Q&A lessons (averaging 2h each) from the years 2014 to 2018. These recorded "live" classes cover hundreds of questions - most of which are indexed. This means that you can have an extra 6 to 8 hours of classes on any of the lessons if you wish. It also allows you to go through the index of questions to only watch the classes that you want to watch in order to better understand the lessons.

Atreya is still checking and correcting your weekly homework posts and you can still post questions on the forum we use for all of the e-learning programs. Atreya also checks the quiz results each week to understand how each student is learning.

The reason why there is this change after nine years of teaching is because Atreya has a genetic deformation in his spine which has caused the degeneration of the inter-veritable discs. Here is his message:

"Due to the degeneration of my neck and spine – a genetic problem diagnosed when I was 15 years old – I will not be able to teach live classes on a regular basis. I will continue to teach the programs outlined on this website, but I cannot do as much work (teaching or administrative)as before. Ayurveda has allowed me to control and manage my disorder for more than 30 years, however with age (I am 62) I need to reduce my work load, otherwise I need to use chemical drugs to control the pain. This is not a good solution for anyone when by changing my lifestyle, diet and using the right herbs I can continue to work for a few more years. This only effects the Part One training, nothing changes for the Part Three herbal therapies training."
