Please note, this is not an exhaustive discussion of the pros and cons of raw versus cooked food diets. As a rule of thumb, Ayurveda does not advise a 100% or near 100% raw food diet for long term use...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Eating raw foods is always a topic of interest when discussing diet with followers of Ayurveda. Most individuals do not posess enough agni, nor live in climates where a 100% raw food diet is possible. The Asthanga Hrydayam notes how an all raw food diet can significantly affect Vata and lead to disease. Ayurveda therefore usually advises against a raw food diet and supports fresh, gently cooked foods for maximum nutrition and building agni. Join Alex Duncan in his article's discussion of raw food diets and see how raw foods may or may not fit into your diet. Namaste

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: So often organic is happening around us and we don't even know it. The neighbor down the way hands me an lime that is organic. He beams not about the technicalities of organic or not; he is proud of the fruit he so patiently waited to harvest from the tree. The thriving gardens of this documentary is an incredible part of the organic process taking hold of the land and food we've lost touch with.

Applied Kinesiology or AK for short is what my vet Dr. Cathy Alinovi calls “muscle testing.” I think it was my first, maybe 2nd visit to her...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Just before completing my initial training in veterinary spinal manipulation, one of my teachers let slip that there was more to learn - this was just a basic methods course. And the pelvis - there was a lot more to know. So I promptly enrolled in an Applied Kinesiology course - as it pertains to spinal manipulation (chiropractic) - and boy did I learn about the pelvis. And, a ton more tools to help my patients. This story shares what my clients thought of this new bag of tricks.
