What is Ayurveda?
Ayurvedic Medicine is one of the oldest and longest standing forms of medicine. Ayurveda first documented its procedures in writing over 5000 years ago, but the oral tradition existed in India long before. The Vedas detail a path to health that includes the body, mind, and spirit, and shares a close connection to yoga, and meditation as well.
One of the primary beliefs of Ayurveda is that we are not what we eat, but what we digest. If one doesn’t have good digestion, than we are not getting the nutrients our bodies need from the food we eat. Not getting the right amount of nourishment from our food is the basis of disease. Ayurveda also recognizes that we all have unique body types and digestion, so there is no one diet that works for every person. How do we improve our digestion? By eating the right foods for our individual constitution, exercise, and establishing grounding daily routines.
Let Nourished Ayurveda help determine the best types of food for you! We focus on a Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle and eating as many fresh foods as possible. We will also help you work on a daily routine that best manages stressors in your life that can lead to frustration at its best, and disease at its worst. If you’re not ready to switch to a Whole Food Plant Based life yet, we’re happy to work with all diets and lifestyles. Rember, perfect is the enemy of good, and we’re here to coach your way to feeling like the best possible version of yourself one step at a time!

The length of the cleanse could be anywhere from 3 days-21 days depending on your state of digestion and health.
