“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” – Ayurveda Proverb
Sorry my blogs have been discreet and low key right now. My focus and any spare time I have has been dedicated to my nutritional studies. However I feel leaving one with a quote to ponder is just as educational. This is an Ayurveda proverb and it is not wrong. It could not hold more true for Riggs’ story (some day I will have time to finish school, work, and publish Riggs’ story — it must be told!) It is not just us, but diet is important for every individual and I hope that you can make the change for better health, too.
Right now we are revisiting herbal remedies for pets, anyways! The portion of my nutritional studies that I gravitate towards the most has always been the holistic elements. Who am I kidding, I love every bit of nutrition studies!
I love alternative medicine. I have great respect for alternative medicine. It will forever hold a place in my heart. Sometimes people use it as a last resort when all else fails, as I did, and now here I am studying it and understanding it when I can tell you, I was scared, maybe even a little bit skeptical, but mostly just uninformed. If it were not for alternative medicine, Riggs would not be here today.
Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest holistic forms of healing. It originated more than 3,000 years ago in India
Ayurvedic medicine focuses on recognizing the metabolic body type of an individual, (doshas). In Ayurvedic medicine, the first action in healing is to discover the specific strengths, vulnerabilities and trends of the patient from a broad standpoint, while taking into account the individual as a whole being; mind, body and spirit. This is what makes alternative medicine stand out from conventional medicine.
Herbs and diet, or other mechanisms may then be applied to bring the foundation of the individual back into harmonious balance within the mind, body, spirit and the environment once these are identified.
