Ayurveda with Dr. Avinash R. Tiwari

Hello Friends,

I was recently awakened to a new concept of diet, health, and color after embracing an afternoon of Ayurveda in the tranquil setting of Landaa Giraavaru, Maldives with Ayurvedic Physician Dr. Avinash R. Tiwari (as pictured above).  The remote island, provides a haven to consider alternative lifestyle techniques such as Ayurveda, the ancient Indian “science of life”  based on body health in relation to diet, excercise, and sleep.   Essentially, the body, mind, and spirit are based on three doshas, which are your elemental composition (fire, air, water, space, and earth), thus determining diet, exercise, and lifestyle modifications.   If you are not able to seek out an Ayurvedic doctor, try for a quick quiz which will reveal your dosha and reveal your specific diet and lifestyle modifications.

As an image consultant, people often ask me what color looks the best for them to wear.  I much prefer to consider the Ayurvedic philosophy of personality related to color and how that color makes you feel.  Suppose your feeling a bit tired, try to wear a bold yellow or orange tie to perk your spirits.  If you’ve been feeling more aggressive or on-edge, select white or light blue to calm your senses.  Image is not only the way you look in the mirror, but how you are perceived on the whole… which includes your moods.  Neutralize your moods and sensitivities with Ayurvedic-based changes in color, fragrance, food, music, breathing practices, temperture, and past-times.

Interestingly, Dr. Tiwari accurately concluded during our consult that I am primarily a fire/Pitta dosha, indicative of a competitive, aggressive, and organized personality.  Fire doshas favor consuming non-spicy foods and should consider sweet, bitter, and astringent diets based heavily on fruits and vegetables, wear light colors, favor jasmine and chamomile, gardening, soft music, and meditation.  Now, back in Hong Kong, I have been applying the Ayurvedic principles for one week and feel magnificent!  I recommend considering color and food choices to anyone looking for positive, quick, lost-cost, low-effort lifestyle adjustments.
