The Way of Ayurveda: Stop Dieting, Start Living

Much of what I am going to share with you in this guidebook are insights from my experience and training. I traveled to Coonoor, India during the summer of 2014 to immerse myself in Ayurveda in hopes of understanding the theoretical and practical application of this 5,000-year-old system of natural healing. It was a life-altering experience to say the least.

I’m proud to have successfully completed an Ayurveda Therapy and Nutrition training course while there. I had the honor of studying under knowledgeable and wise teachers who’ve taught me everything they know about Ayurveda.

Please note I am not an Ayurvedic expert. I believe in these Ayurvedic principles 100 percent because I practice and live by them. In fact, these principles have enabled me to help those closest to me live a better life by helping them identify their doshas and understand their Prakriti (natural constitution).

There is major TRUTH in these Ayurvedic texts. I wouldn’t be sharing these insights with you if I didn’t respect the Source. What I love most about Ayurveda is the practicality and logic behind everything that has been recorded by our ancestors. Our ancestors have stated that anything can be used as medicine because everything that exists has a specific guna, or quality, to it. Food, color, music, smell, people, lifestyle, drinks, fabric—even paint color!

Use this guidebook for exactly what it is: a guide. And always remember to educate yourself about your health.
