Aligning your body with Ayurveda medicine w/ Dr Sheetal Ajmani - Part 2: Ayurvedic nutrition
Updated: Aug 26
If you missed part 1 of this episode The Scope of Ayurveda, check it out first (here) so this episode makes more sense. Today, we focus on Ayurvedic nutrition and how to listen better to your body to find balance in your life.
Ayurveda medicine is so many things in one. Actually here is one pretty amazing definition I stumbled upon:
“Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 5,000 years ago in India.
It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. But treatments may be geared toward specific health problems.
Everything in the universe – dead or alive – is connected. If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe, you have good health. When something disrupts this balance, you get sick. Among the things that can upset this balance are genetic or birth defects, injuries, climate and seasonal change, age, and your emotions.”
Now you understand why I've got so many questions to ask to Ayurveda practitioners.
Since Ayurveda is all about aligning our body, mind & soul, I’m going to follow this pattern, and make a three part series with three Ayurveda experts. We’ll start with the body, follow up with the mind and wrap up with the soul.
For part one "Aligning your mind with Ayurveda", I invited Dr. Sheetal Ajmani, a pediatrician, best-selling author, Ayurveda lifestyle consultant, yoga instructor, and mindfulness advocate. She's also the founder of Radiant Living, where with her holistic approach - that combines modern science, psychology, mindset, Ayurveda, yoga, and mindfulness - she helps women reclaim their worth, energy, and happiness in their life, career, and relationships.
In this episode we cover:
Listening to our bodies and its own specificities;
Eating organic, local & seasonal food;
The importance of digestion and eating mindfully;
Ayurvedic cleanses to reset your body flow after experiencing life stressors;
Getting rid of toxins build ups;
And so much more ...
Don't forget to check out part 1 of this episode first and to stay tuned for:
Part 2 of this series - Aligning your mind with Ayurveda.
And part 3 of this series - Aligning your soul with Ayurveda.
But right now let's focus on the body.
