In my early 20s I became fascinated with Ayurveda. My mother was sick and western medicine gave us conflicting rules for her care. I knew there were alternative ways of healing her; I have no idea how I knew, I just knew.
I don’t know what intrigued me about holistic healing. I didn’t have friends into it, I wasn’t exposed to it in college and my family, though hippie-esque, had never mentioned herbs nor alternative healing.
I remember taking a few unsuccessful yoga classes offered at my corporate job in the late 90s. I was obese then, nearing 200 pounds. I had various health problems as a result of being overweight; my heart fluttered though an EKG showed no abnormality, I had acid reflux, and hypothyroidism. I had always been a thin and active child—Corporate America fattens more than just your wallet.
Eastern medicine and their philosophies are part of the core learning materials during my 2005 Holistic Wellness Mastery studies. Lo-and-behold, here comes Ayurveda in my life again. “Ah yes! I remember this stuff! It worked great for me years ago but my goddess, is it difficult to understand and implement!”
I kept learning, despite how complicated it seemed. Here are a few of the easier points I always loved about Ayurveda:
- It’s an ancient philosophy considering the body, mind, and soul of each individual when performing evaluations. There’s no one-size-fits-all mentality. We’re honored as the individuals we are.
- Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga, dating back 5,000 years. There’s something to be said for medicine that’s stood the test of time.
- Ayurveda is about learning to care for ourselves, while also caring for Nature. Eco-friendly is not a claim you’ll read about in this philosophy. Yet being in tune with nature invariably helps Her heal.
- You don’t have to be an expert to take away great value. I still have a lot to discover—yet I regain the balance of life by asking the correct questions.
- If you take away nothing else, studying Ayurveda teaches you the most important message: to become more in tune with nature, you must become in tune with yourself.
- Neither Ayurveda not yoga are religions. They are spiritual philosophies practiced by any race, creed, gender, or age.
To be clear, I’m not a certified practitioner. My intention is never to diagnose conditions nor prescribe treatment. However, my research and experience has afforded me the gift of translating the complicated components of both Eastern and Western medicine, so I can offer guidance.
After all, the answer is already within you, correct? Doctors, mentors, coaches, practitioners… we’re all there to teach you to tap into your inner practitioner. No one knows what’s best for you except YOU.
This eBook is how I guide you to your inner physician.
