The Health Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet

The foundation for good health begins with the food that we eat. According to a recent WHO report, nutrition and diet are considered to contribute 60% of our health and wellbeing. This is why healthful nutrition is such an integral part of the holistic healing journey at Kamalaya. Kamalaya’s Healthy Cuisine follows a whole food plant-based approach as we have found that this delivers the most significant health benefits, often even in just a short time. There are also relatively few restrictions involved in following this type of nutritional plan which makes it easily accessible to a wide range of people. Rather than the complete exclusion of all animal products, a whole food plant-based diet recommends reducing and eventually phasing out animal products in favour of eating more plant-based foods.

The numerous health benefits of following a whole food plant-based diet are increasingly being recognized by conventional medicine and respected academics. One recent Harvard study which involved approximately 120,000 participants over a 30 year period revealed that those who replaced animal products with plant-based foods for just one meal per day reduced their risk of coronary disease by 20%. When data as credible and remarkable as this supports the health benefits of a plant-based diet, it provides a real inspiration to further explore its potential for ourselves.

Video: A Plant-Based Approach to Nutrition

In this video, I answer some common questions about a plant-based diet, such as: from where can we source our proteins? What are the main health benefits? And, is this nutritional approach suitable for everyone? You can watch the video here.

New Kamalaya Recipe: Thai Cauliflower Risotto

We are delighted to share a new plant-based recipe from our culinary director Kai Mueller. His Thai Cauliflower Risotto combines fragrant herbs and gently warming spices with the natural healing properties of cauliflower. This dish supports detoxification, lowers cholesterol and boosts immunity. Visit our website for the recipe.

Sharing Your Journey

We would like to sincerely thank all of our guests who have taken the time to share quotes with us about their experience at Kamalaya. The example below from Ms. Rachel Munro reminds us that taking the time to reconnect with our inner-self on a regular basis can produce life-changing results.

“Kamalaya has become my sanctuary. I arrived frazzled, stressed and exhausted and leave relaxed renewed and reinvigorated. My stay has enabled me to appreciate my surroundings, myself and life in general all over again. I look forward to returning for my next ‘Annual Maintenance’.
Ms. Rachel Munro, UK. July 2018
