Garlic and Honey
.
Garlic’s allicin has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties that support immunity – colds, flu, and allergies.
.
Honey is antimicrobial, antiviral, high in antioxidants (flavonoids and polyphenols; fight inflammation, important for strong immunity), and helps to improve cholesterol (reduces bad LDLs and increased good HDLs), to lower triglycerides, and to heal wounds and burns. 
.
A lab study* found that Manuka honey was able to stop the flu virus from growing. The researchers concluded that honey, especially Manuka honey, worked almost as well as antiviral drugs against this virus. Combined honey and garlic have powerful antibiotic properties that strengthen the immune system.

What is Holistic Health?
.
This ancient approach to health considers the whole person and how they interact with their environment. The connection between mind, body, and spirit is the basis of holistic health. The goal is to promote healing, health maintenance, and prevention of all components of a person for optimal functioning; not just addressing specific symptoms.
.
One component being out of balance can affect a person’s overall well-being and quality of life. Holistic health cohesively integrates restorative methods and modalities that include diet, movement/exercise, and meditation.

The Vagus Nerve may well be the Key to your Health & Well-being!
.
The Latin translation of Vagus Nerve: The Wandering Nerve. It is the longest nerve in the human body. It plays an essential role in survival, social engagement, sensing safety, and generating joy.
.
When one increases the Vagal tone with Craniosacral Therapy and Somatic Experiencing, it enhances the perception of stress and overall well-being, reduces inflammation, and reduces pain.

ORDER OF EATING
.
In contrary to modern day, our ancient rishis had advised us to eat starting with something sweet and ending in something astringent. This is because ideally, we are supposed to eat ONLY when hungry and when we get hungry our digestive power is built up to eat something heavy first (sweet taste) for proper assimilation.
.
The order of eating:
SWEET: helps calm Vata (wind energy) and grounds us to continue our meal in peace
SOUR and SALTY: stimulates the digestive fire in the small intestine (PITTA)
PUNGENT, BITTER, and ASTRINGENT: helps overcome the “food coma” quality (Kapha)
.
We should feel light and satisfied after meals!

THREE DOSHAS
.
Since we are a reflection of nature, our goal is to be in harmony. The five elements(Air, Space, Water, Fire, and Earth) that are present in nature are also within us. Each individual is made differently and some elements are more dominant than others. To simplify this, these elements are grouped into 3 biological energies: VATA, PITTA, KAPHA.
.
Each Dosha is composed of different qualities: 
VATA: cold, light, mobile, dry, rough, minute
PITTA: Hot, sharp, light, oily, viscous,
spreading, liquid
KAPHA: Heavy, slow, cool, oily, soft, stable, thick
.
Ex: A balanced Vata person thrives with creativity, on the other hand, an imbalance Vata person tends to get lost in their world of thoughts.
