They are produced by our body first and foremost. And spices support the production and efficacy of enzymes in our body for proper digestive health (for proper digestion, assimilation and elimination). It’s rare to see anyone in today’s lifestyle who has great digestive health really as stress depletes it.
In this class you can learn how to make these quick and easy recipes which makes a FULL MEAL that suit the modern lifestyle, and assess your ayurvedic body type as well!
