Aligning your mind with Ayurveda w/ Dr Siva Mohan - Part 2: self-assessing your wellbeing
What is a healthy body without a balanced/healthy mind? There is no denying that the two are inherently linked together.
The mind has a tremendous influence on our overall health. That's what I want to dissect today: how to heal our minds on all levels from the subconscious to the superconscious part of the brain with the three regulatory principles of the body, mind, and soul in Ayurveda.
If you missed part 1 of this episode "True mind-body wellness", check it out first (here) so this episode makes more sense. Today, I keep on with my conversation about uncovering how to align our minds with Ayurveda medicine. It's a deep dive into the functioning and the tools to self-assess our own well-being. Actually, taking responsibility for our wellbeing and finding balance in our life.
Indeed, in part 1 of this episode, we touched upon the mind-body connection and its intricacies such as balancing common disturbances of the mental and emotional realm; strengthening our mind to be less prone to mental imbalances; the beneficial role of Ayurveda during the most challenging and stressful times - on an individual and collective level; and so on.
Let me take you once again on my obessive quest of knowing so much more about the depths of the mind as a continuation of my Ayurveda series: A journey to healthy living with Ayurveda medicine. In other words, exploring the mind through an Ayurvedic stand-point. In this episode, we go a step further exploring the interesting mix of psychiatry and Ayurveda, sound healing such as bineaural beats and music therapy and its effects on the mind; the fascinating revolutionary new therapy: Bioenergetics; the inner work to heal trauma that affects the mind.
And so much more ...
For that exploration what better than to keep on discussing with Neuroscience BA holder and psychiatrist (Western Medicine, Public Health) who adds Ayurveda, spiritual practices and wellness lifestyle approaches into the mix to build an unshakable awareness for self-healing. I'm very grateful to have Dr Siva Mohan on this podcast today to guide my little investigation about aligning our mind with Ayurveda medicine. From Neuroscience dork, to witch doctor, (her words!) Siva presents a unique East-West mind-body version of Ayurveda. With her "heart-mind" approach, she makes this complex yet basic medicine and philosophy simple, enjoyable, and more importantly imperfectly perfect for our modern life. She has been guiding people in her private practice for over a decade to build self awareness, emotional wellness to live a healthier life.
Don't forget to check out part 1 of this episode first and to stay tuned for the last and final part of this series: Aligning your soul with Ayurveda.
But right now let's focus on the mind.
