Ayurvedic Nutrition for Optimal Wellness Workshop (Cancelled)

Description

Ayurveda, the 5000-year-old medical system of India, states that poor nutrition is the main cause of disease. This system uses food to heal and prevent illness. Unlike modern nutritional systems, Ayurveda has always had an individualized approach to nutrition. However, this ancient system needs to be adapted to the modern lifestyle of the cultures using it.  Join Dr Farah Shroff, PhD, UBC faculty member in the Department of Family Practice and the School of Population and Public Health, and let her guide you through how Ayurvedic Medicine and Nutrition can help you heal.
