||Perfect Digestion: The Key to Balanced Living (Perfect Health Library Series)
Or the millions of Americans whose digestive
disorders fail to respond to conventional medical treatments, Dr. Chopra offers an
alternative approach based upon the principles of Ayurvedic medicine. Among the topics
covered are the relationship between emotions and intestinal functions, biological rhythms
and neuromuscular integration, and the importance of diet.
on Ayurvedic Nutrition
Chopra has also emphasized the importance of a proper diet in order to maintain total
health. Again, the Ayurvedic approach to nutrition is a consciousness- based approach, so
that more important than any approach is "awareness of one's interaction with food as
part of conscious universe." This awareness exists on many levels: the awareness one
has when putting the food into one's mouth, the awareness of the cook who has prepared the
food, even the awareness of the farmer who has grown the product, all these influence the
life energy or life force or prana of the food. When one eats pre-packaged or
canned foods, Chopra believes, it does not provide the eater with the utmost feeling of
energy because it is missing the life force/life energy, which is an expression of
consciousness in Ayurveda.
Another important aspect of Ayurvedic
nutrition is the emphasis on taste as an indicator. Knowledge about nutrition is obtained
through taste and the effects of food in terms of awareness: whether particular foods make
you feel heavy or light, congested or energized, hot or cold.
Chopra also maintains the importance
of fasting and enemas as a vehicle for detoxification and purification.
