019. Food as Medicine: Antanas Vainius [Nourishment & Embodiment Coach‪]‬ The Gurus & Game Changers Podcast

    • Mental Health

Hey Gurus and Game Changers, join us as we uncover the intricate connection between what we eat and how we heal. In our enlightening chat with Antanas, a nourishment guide and embodiment coach, we delve into his personal tale of resilience—opting for nutrition over medication in his initial fight against HIV. Listen in as we dissect the nuanced difference between food and nutrition and learn from Antanas' practical tips on whole eating, such as soaking beans, and how to approach food as a healing tool. His story isn't just about the choices we make at the dinner table, but a testament to the belief in the restorative power of what we consume.

The journey to wellness often traverses through valleys of hardships, and this is especially true for our guest who faced down cryptococcal meningitis with a mere 24 T cells to his name. Explore the meticulous medical dance required to rebuild an immune system before commencing HIV treatment, and be inspired by his remarkable health comeback. But it's not just about survival; Antanas invites us to revel in life's pleasures, emphasizing that true nourishment extends far beyond the ingredients—it's about connection, support, and the joy of preparation. With Antanas' insights, we'll help you cultivate a more intentional and nurturing relationship with the meals you create.

Finally, step into the world of culinary gadgets and tricks that elevate our nutritional intake. We share personal anecdotes on the value of high-quality ingredients, from the significance of water, salt, and fats, to the surprising benefits of eating butter by the spoonful. Antanas cautions against hydrogenated oils and champions the practice of soaking nuts to unlock their full potential. But beyond the practical tips, we plant the seeds of a legacy—a Pleasure Monastery of sorts—where one can live at choice, unburdened by past traumas and indulging in the simple, healthful pleasures of life. Don't miss the chance to engage with Antanas further and enrich your own food journey at relationalnutrition.com.
