I am in awe of how a few very simple recommendations made such a huge shift in the way my digestive system feels, which ripples out into how I feel in the rest of my life. This course is packed with detailed information, yet it was some of the most simple changes that actually made the biggest difference — for example, eating cooked food instead of raw salads like I was doing before! The best part is, not only do I feel lighter and more clear, I ALSO feel more satisfied than ever. I truly believe that this course will change the life of everyone who takes it!

Before Ayurveda came into my life, I always thought my digestive discomforts (heaviness, burping, low appetite) were related to specific foods.. but, I could never quite figure it out! As soon as a stopped combining fruit with other foods and started allowing sufficient time for digestion in between meals, I began to experience the most comfortable/consistent digestion of my life! I feel lighter, more nourished and more in tune with my cravings than ever before. I also had no idea what a difference cooking with spices could make! Not only are my meals tasting better, but I feel like I am actually absorbing the nutrients, AND am noticing more sustained energy as a result.

As I went through this course, so many light bulbs went off for me. I've struggled with Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism which has lead to me being overweight and sore all of the time. By gaining an understanding of how my body reacts to specific foods, this course has allowed me to make some life-changing dietary habits. I definitely notice the difference now when I feed myself foods intended for my body constitution versus ones that affect me adversely. I so appreciate all of the downloadable information Sierra and Molly provide as reference material for me to go back to as needed!
