Sheepie Snack Sunday – Ayurveda Proverb

“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.

  1. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    1. So sorry about that. I hate when that happens. Glad you are enjoying my blogs. Thank you for taking the time to read, and for your feedback, I am most appreciative. I’m sure you will do wonderful with your blogging. I often worry about being too blunt at times as I have a strong personality and my views can be very harsh working in my field when I see a lot of neglect; I have learned and have been told to just be you; people will either love you or they won’t. The truth sometimes is hard to hear but I aim for education and advocacy. I hope this helps. Good luck!
