All walks of life
The program includes a personalised diet formulated following up a nutrition consultation with the onsite Ayurveda doctor at the Ashoka Ayurveda centre. Your personal eating plan will be set using the Ayurvedic guidelines for when, how, and what you should eat based on your Dosha and determined by your body type and personality.
The diet is predominantly vegetarian and is rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Hence, rich in fibre and important vitamins and minerals that your body requires to work properly.
However, legumes are high in anti-nutrients such as Lectins and Phytic acid, which have the ability to impair the absorption of iron, zinc, and calcium from the same meal. This can increase the risk of mineral deficiencies in people who suffer from health conditions such osteoporosis and auto-immune diseases. But also to those whose diet is high on coffee, wheat, tomatoes, potatoes, peanuts and beans or simply poor in nutrient-dense foods.
Phytic acid and lectin-rich foods aren’t generally a cause for concern, but if you have a medical concern triggering symptoms that seem to be related to the foods you eat, consider talking with one of our registered nutritionists. We have a 30-minute free consultation prior to arrival at your disposal, and will be happy to review your diet and communicate suggestions to help ease your symptoms with the onsite Ayurveda doctor.

WONDERFUL AYURVEDIC EXPERIENCE
The Galo Alpino Resort in Madeira is an authentic Ayurvedic experience, with wonderful daily oil massages that are individually tailored for you through an appointment with an Indian Ayurvedic trained doctor. The surroundings are lovely, overlooking the ocean with flowering gardens and lawn loungers to relax. Food is vegetarian with a touch of Indian flavours. Great place to de-stress. It is not cheap but for what you get and compare to other spa weeks it is a great deal. Also you get to use their other 5 star hotel properties about a 5-10 min walk away at no extra cost - pretty pools overlooking the ocean, etc.
