With public perception of a crisis in our healthcare system, it is now becoming accepted that the future of medicine lies in our nutrition and lifestyle. What could better help us understand how to manage our health than the original source of knowledge and the most enduring and sophisticated system of healing?
Ayurveda is the ancient and timeless, science of life and has been experientially proven over many centuries to help us achieve an optimum state of health and well being.
What you will learn: 
  • Recognise the person (patient)

Identify their constitutional (genomic) make up (Prakruti); get to know each person’s (including your own) risk factors for disease and their particular nutrition and lifestyle needs to achieve/maintain health

  • Tune into the pulse

Pulse rate information as predictor of disease  

  • Gut instinct

The digestive system is the key to all diseases. Learn about the key role of “agni” aka digestive fire on digestion and assimilation of food and, how you can balance it with diet and lifestyle. 

  • Connection with the patient

Learn how to get to the root of the issue quickly so that the patient leaves feeling understood and re-assured with new tools for their health 

  • Connection with the original intention
  • What is the intention with which you set out to become a healthcare professional? Learn the tools that actually reconnect you with that orignial intention to relieve suffering
  • Connection with intuitive practice

When faced with the problem of what you should do with a patient, learn how to trust your intuition as a healthcare professional. 

  • Connect with universal energy

How to connect with the source of our energy through practices such as mindfulness and meditation 

In Ayurveda we can recognise the constitution of the person through the particularities of their physiological functioning. This is a sophisticated predictor of future disease as well as a reliable gauge of many physiological and mental imbalances, such as inflammation, infection, allergens, immunity, digestive functioning, mental capacities, behavioural aspects, sustainable immunity, hidden / stagnant disease and much more.
 
Through this knowledge we can discover the causes and the pathogenesis of disease and provide an entirely natural, effective approach using diet, lifestyle, treatment therapies and the harnessing of universal energy.

 

Conscious Eating

Slide1

Healthy eating has to do with what we eat, what we absorb & how we eat. We can combine conscious eating to all these aspects: primarily by eating with attention, mindfully but also, by learning to eat according to our type & choosing foods that are from a sustainable source.

Practicing to cook and eat consciously can affect our health & being in tangible & intangible ways:

- by reducing stress

- improving digestion and absorption of nutrients

- optimising the amount we eat

- helping us be in tune with our body and seasons

- influencing our energy and awareness.

We are going to explore these useful principles in the “Conscious Eating” workshop.

Body types, Personality and Health

Body types, personality & health 20 Sept 17

The Health Being Institute workshopBody types, personality and health – from ancient teachings to modern science’ will take place on Saturday 30th of September 2017 11am- 1:30pm, Central London.

I’m really pleased to have a co-presenter Angeliki Kompoholi from Greece. Angeliki brings an in-depth knowledge of Ancient Greek and literature and, a skill in bringing this timeless philosophy and wisdom to life, making them relevant to our everyday world.

From ancient traditions, human types have been described by the Humours: choleric, phlegmatic, sanguine and melancholic and in Ayurvedic Medicine by the five elements of ether, air, water, fire and earth. Ancient Greece? Angeliki and I aim to relate this wisdom to the newer discoveries in medicine such as epigenetics and to help you find practical ideas to improve your ‘health being’.

What is our ‘type’ made up in terms of:

  • our personality
  • our types of relationships
  • body type
  • activity and sleep patterns

How can diet, lifestyle, mindfulness and connection help our ‘type’?

The Health Being Institute “Diet and Philosophy” and “Medical Kitchen Wisdom” workshops provide an opportunity for people who are searching to bring together wisdom and science for the benefit of themselves, other people they know and the wider community.
