Some foods, however, do appear to provide a greater concentration of nutrients than others.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The unique series of body treatments with herbal oils, pastes and scrubs is what makes Ayurveda one of the most powerful natural medicines known to date. According to Ayurvedic scholar Sushrata, Udvartana is one of a three-part treatment designed to detoxify, reduce fat, strengthen and tone the body. By appling dry herbs in a "scrub" form to the skin through massage, Udvartana stimulates blood and lymphatic stimulation, toxin elimination and absorption of herbal medicine. This video about Udartana by Ayurvedic Practitioner Lisa Belisle describes the process and what to expect from a treatment. Note that Udvartana is often best suited for kapha types and should not typically be used by pittas or vatas because of skin sensitivity. Namaste

by Lynne Sullivan, DC

The immune system is your body’s defense against invasion by foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells.  It is composed of a complex system of specialized tissues, cells, and organs whose purpose is to recognize and destroy these harmful invaders, thus preventing the development of infection and disease.  Supporting and enhancing your immune system through healthy lifestyle choices as well as implementing select nutrients and herbs, and most of all having a healthy nervous system, will help reduce your susceptibility to colds, the flu, and other infections and diseases...
