One of the things that I love the most about Ayurveda is that it is so life centered. Ayurveda focuses on what each person can do in order to make the most of this human experience so that they can benefit themselves and of course their community.
In fact, Charaka, one of the three most important Ayurvedic doctors of all times, was very broad in his prescriptions for diet. He wanted to make sure that his recommendations could be applied to every person, no matter their circumstances.
When it comes to beef, Charaka says
”The flesh of the cow is beneficial for those suffering from the loss of flesh due to disorders caused by an excess of vayu, rhinitis, irregular fever, dry cough, fatigue, and also in cases of excessive appetite resulting from hard manual labour.”
Excess vayu, also known as excess vata is highly predominant in the environment during the winter months, making grass fed grass finished beef one of the most nutrient dense statples of the season.
Not to mention that most of us suffer from excess vayu, emotionally and mentally most of the time.
As far, as rhinitis, irregular fever, dry cough, fatigue and excessive appetite resulting from hard labour go, we leave it up to each one of you to decide for yourselves.
Following Charaka’s recommendations, we should always look for wholesome food. Eating food is a process of energy exchange and as such it must follow the path of least harm.
Wholesome food is defined as food that has followed the path of least harm for the environment, the community and you.
Wholesome in this particular case, means beef from pasture raised cows who have been treated with respect, who have been fed what cows are supposed to eat and who have enjoyed the great outdoors.
Receiving such food is one of the greatest blessings we can be experiencing as human beings.
Today, we are very fortunate to have access to an increasing number of farms who are willing to honor timeless practices and implement the path of least harm.
