Remember food wants to heal us, it is the most powerful medicine at our disposal. What makes food act
against its essentially healing nature is the fact that we forget a very basic truth…

FOOD IS NOT MATH.

So, you must not approach it like a mathematical problem!

Modern understanding of nutrition separates food into three basic components. carbohydrates, proteins and fats, called the macro-nutrients. The problem with that approach is that carbs, proteins and fats are not foods.
THESE are foods:

  • Water
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Grains
  • Legumes
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Eggs
  • Oils
  • Dairy Product

DECONSTRUCTING FOOD INTO ITS COMPONENTS ALONE IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE MODERN NUTRITION MAKES AND IT IS THE FASTEST ROUTE TO LEAD YOUR BODY TO DISEASE CITY. If eating a balanced meal was all about consuming percentages of nutrients, this is how you would work out a “perfect” dinner:

A protein shake + a multivitamin capsule + two scoops of dietary fibre + 2 coconut oil capsules.

But it doesn’t work that way, does it?

Preparing and consuming food to get the best nutritional value out of it is far more rewarding and exciting than this dull equation! Food in Ayurveda is the basis of life, transformation and healing. A holistic meal or aahar should not involve calorie counting, or running from all carbs. It should mean: 

  • An intriguing balance of flavors from bitter to astringent to spicy 
  • Chewing food in a way that aids digestion 
  • How to cook and combine foods so that their nutrients are more bio-available to us 
  • Preparation methods that make food easy to digest, such as fermentation and soaking in water 
  • Food storage methods that add extra vitamins and minerals to food 
  • Serving vessels that enhance food’s nutritive qualities 
  • Choosing the right food for your current state of body and mind 
  • And choosing the right food for your specific constitution
  • Eating season-appropriate vegetables and fruits 
  • Tempering your food with healing spices such as turmeric 
  • Healing your pathologies by eating smart
  • Ensuring the right gap between water and meals to build digestive Agni
  • And many other factors

Cooking and eating using the wisdom of tradition and your own body can heal your digestive tract and your whole body in turn. It can revitalize your relationship with food, shift it from something you struggle with to something that nourishes and heals you at every level. When you eat right, you effortlessly:

  • Shed abdominal weight 
  • Nurture endocrine health 
  • Calm down your allergies
  • Clear your skin
  • Detoxify your gut
  • Feel more energetic and capable 
  • Feel mentally “sharper” and MOST CRITICALLY…
  • Start healing your current symptoms 
  • And prevent disease

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? You too can have this empowering relationship with food, starting now! You
can make healthier choices, uplift energy levels and start healing disease – and you can do it from your stovetop, pantry and table!

The answer to your food dilemma is finally here. Discover:

  • If you should replace sugar with splenda? 
  • Why do you gain weight despite counting calories? 
  • You don’t have celiac disease or insulin resistance, should you still stop eating all carbs?

 WHY SHOULD YOU ORDER THIS PROGRAM NOW?


There are multiple reasons for ordering this program now – it will be one of the
best decisions you make for yourself and your family.

introductory discount

Firstly, the cost advantage of the introductory discount is huge, and why would you not want to study such an interesting, in-depth and useful program and yet get to save quite a bit?

one-time, long-term investment

The cost advantage doesn’t end here. Because nutrition is always going to be extremely relevant to your health, this course is a fantastic one-time, long-term investment towards enhancing your family’s health and happiness. And you can study the different foods and how to prepare them again and again, till you absolutely get it right! That’s akin to hundreds of dollars saved in doctor’s visits and expensive but unnecessary diagnostic testing. You do the cost-benefit advantage here!

 insights from Chinese and Herbal Medicine in course

In Todd’s trademark manner, this course takes a very practical approach, which covers not just Ayurveda, but insights from Chinese and Herbal Medicine too, as well as concepts from the latest current research. And the best bit is that this program shows you ways to diagnose and start reversing nascent pathologies with your next meal. 

Learnings in the privacy of your own home

That’s regarding the price - but time-saving is equally important! If you have a busy schedule with a job and children and other responsibilities to juggle, or have other limitations such as living in an area where such classes are unavailable... this course can be a life-saver. You can learn techniques to change your life and that of your family in the privacy of your own home and watch it as many times as you want! 

Comfortable accessibility of the course

Get instant HD access to the course on The Ayurveda Experience platform. Simply log in and access all your courses anytime. Watch them on any device: desktop, smartphone and tablet. You can easily download the videos to your device so you can watch them without internet connection. Watch your course in the comfort of your home or while you're on the go! 

Course from authentic practitioner

Also, what is PRICELESS here is finding an authentic practitioner whose persona exudes wisdom and humility and who has a very flexible and practical approach to health. You have seen the video and heard Todd talk about Holistic Nutrition in a way that challenges many assumptions, yet remains very rooted in basic, simple principles of empowered well-being. 

In Todd’s own words:

Todd's easy to apply and life-changing eating plan

What a clear-eyed, wonderful way to look at food! Todd combines cutting-edge new research on food with traditional wisdom from Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and Central American sources for an easy to apply and life-changing eating plan. The best part about Todd’s approach is that he gently examines every healing system, even Ayurveda! For example, even though dairy is celebrated in Ayurveda, Todd puts that in the traditional context and takes a more measured view about the pros and cons of dairy today.

“Todd’s practical advice on food – what, when and how to eat – has inspired many of our students to make simple changes to their diet and lifestyle, with immediate and profound effects on energy level, concentration, and relief from confusion. Put simply, Todd is the best Ayurvedic teacher I’ve ever met.”
-Daniel Clement, Director, Open Source Yoga

“(After reading Todd’s work) I understand a lot more about how food has been affecting me and my family, and I so appreciate Todd’s myth- and trend-busting and the science behind principles, along with the honesty about what is done based on millennia of experience. Todd is one of the rare authors in the field of herbs and food as medicine in which my scientist husband has developed much confidence. Consider this high praise. His questioning of assertions made by some other authors has also trained me to be more critical in evaluating the material given. So, although I may not understand the chemistry involved, I follow the logic of it and my husband finds it very informative!”
-Jacqueline Pagani  

Here’s Todd’s Promise to You:

"Given the obvious complexity of food, and the resultant ignorance and confusion that typically follows, most of us end up eating foods that aren’t very good for us. Ayurveda will help you cut to the heart of the matter, not through the cold calculation of precise mechanisms and measurements, but through a naturalistic approach that actually matches our human experience.”
