How often do you spend time really nurturing your face? London's air, tube and traffic pollution, stuffy offices, stress, indoor living – all these can make skin dull, congested or blotchy. Beauty and skincare products can go some way towards helping prevent and deal with the damage but the Ayurvedic approach is to improve the functioning of the skin itself.

The ancient Ayurvedic texts say it's OK for Vata and Pitta people to consume dairy. but as a modern Ayurvedic practitioner in London, I see two problems with this. First, when they were written, more than 2,000 years ago, milk came from people's own cows and their milk was considered sattvic (pure).

A joke about two things we discuss a lot in Ayurveda: 

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God, or no heaven or hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"OK," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss God, heaven and hell, or life after death, when you don't know shit?"

And then she went back to reading her book..

Quinoa has become super trendy – even your nan now knows it's pronounced keen-wah. It's been designated a superfood, it's gluten free (very on-message), and ayurvedically, it's balanced for all three doshas. You probably already know that it's a seed not a grain, but because of its nutritional content and general go-with-anythingness we can use it like a grain. But quinoa could be damaging your gut and doing more harm than good because of some rather bothersome molecules in the seeds' protective coating, called saponins.
