⚕️ The Ayurvedic Approach to Digestive Health and Nutrition.
Ayurveda could be called the ‘science of digestion’. It believes that a faulty digestion is the cause of most diseases. However good your diet is, if your digestion is impaired then you cannot absorb the appropriate nutrients required for nourishment. This ultimately causes in the depletion of the entire system and results in disease. However, a good diet is essential too. 
👉 In his article, Sebastian Pole, looks at the Ayurvedic perspective of how both the quality of food we eat as well as the quality of digestion influence our health and how by treating the ‘root’ cause of disease we can help our patients heal.
