Body type and raw foods
I was reading another thread on here and decided to research eating for your body type. I realize there are many different ways of classifying, but this was the way in which I found the most results. I think its called Ayurveda or something. Any way, using this it really seems I am the body type Vata Dosha.... But I could definately be incorrect, it is just a guess. and also not necessarily currently, just in the norm. I don't know if I am making any sense...
I seem to have some Pitta as well though.
There were many different websites that said different things. Here are a few sites:
Any thoughts, suggestions...any other ways of telling your body type and how to achieve better health using it?
...and sorry if this is confusing, I am confused myself
Never heard of anything like that. I read a book call "Eat Right for your Blood Type"............
Yes I have.
When I recently went for my first colonic the Naturpath felt Raw may not be the best for me as my Ayurveda "type" needed a lot of protein.
I told her how I felt raw and she did not try to force the issue but was very interested.
I have not studied it but i am awear of it. :rolleyes:
gabriel cousens' book, conscious eating, goes into great detail about determining your dosha and how to apply it to a raw food diet.
When I went to Mercola's office a few months ago they told me I was a mixed body type. I guess that's the easiest - when it comes to foods. Well the diet plan they gave me was still way restrictive; only eat this type of protein with this type of carb and that type of protein with that type of carb.
I love this eating raw - I eat anything at anytime and I sometimes feel I'm mixing strange things together, but its delicious. And let me tell you I feel wonderful!
Before "going raw" I almost brought the Eat Right For Your Type book. I'm really glad I didn't and picked up a copy of Detox Your World instead... I was reading either Diet For A New America or Food Revolution and he went into quite a bit of detail about blood type diets and how they don't work. I think it's kind of sad how we have all this confusion and mis-match of information out there... a lot of it sneaks into our belief systems by hiding behind half truths :confused:
