I just found this site a couple of days ago and am so grateful for the indepth information. I have been interested in healthy eating for at least 40 years and have read a great deal on the subject. At 67 I am in the unique position to look back and see how bang on my intuition has been. I have allowed myself to be steered in many directions following the trends and food "experts" and now I am happy to find that my inclinations were not wrong but perfect for my dosha. It all fits. What a wonderful feeling. Now I can stop searching and just enjoy these foods that have been recommended for me - the ones that I have always loved. If this comment helps anyone short cut their quest for the ultimate diet and trust this way of eating, I am happy. Thank-you John from the bottom of my heart.

I made a variation of this tea which tasted delicious. I ripped a teabag and added the tea into a tea infuser within a mug, then added quarter 1/8th teaspoon of ground cardamom, 1/4 teaspoon of ground fennel, 1/8th teaspoon of ground ginger then added boiling water and 1 teaspoon of honey, left to brew for around 3 minutes, removed strainer added some semi-skimmed milk. Stir, delicious drink.
