On March 18 the Wellness & Nutrition Book Club met to discuss the book Grain Brain by neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter. One of the interesting aspects of this book is its focus on keeping our brains healthy. It is easier for us to know if our physical bodies are struggling as we can feel many dis-eases, but what about our brains? Our brains are more silent and not an area we commonly think very much about. Yet, we will all agree that healthy brains are absolutely critical to our quality of life!
Interesting takeaways from the discussion included:

According to Ayurveda, spring is called kapha season. Kapha literally means "to stick together." It's a muddy, wet and rainy time of year in nature, where the earth is holding onto more water. This is nature's response to a long dry winter. As the Earth swells with new moisture, seeds begin to germinate, flowers bloom, and the trees begin to bud.
