Nutrition is a Key Element in Your Transformation
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old healing system that originated in ancient India. The word Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit word, AYUS, meaning “life,” and VEDA, meaning “wisdom” or “science”. Therefore, Ayurveda is the science of life, and it offers each of us practical tools for leading long, healthy, and happy lives.
Ayurveda is a consciousness-based approach to health and healing, and its purpose is to help us return to our natural state of health and balance, which means that we need to begin to think of ourselves as multidimensional beings.
In Ayurveda, health is not simply the absence of disease but is a state of expanded awareness that will open us up to greater well-being, increased creativity, and daily experiences of joy.
Ayurveda is experiential, which means that the choices you make about your interactions with the external world WILL change your body; this includes your choices about:
- Food & Nutrition
- Sensory experiences & external stimuli
- Sleep & Rest
- The Work Day
- Everyday Routines
As a certified Ayurvedic Health Coach from the Deepak Chopra Center, I am ready to help you understand that answers to our health and well-being struggles are never answered with a “one size fits all” plan. All of our work will be grounded in and support the Six Pillars of Health. Disease is DIS-EASE, meaning that something has been disturbed within us and is affecting one or more of those pillars.
We will begin our work by learning about YOU and then from there, we will design a realistic and sustainable plan to increase your psychological well-being, decrease your habits that promote risk factors for disease, and decrease your lifestyle choices that cause anxiety or overall dissatisfaction with life.
Through this you’ll learn to see yourself as one WHOLE being, realizing that it’s not enough to just “eat right”. You have to nourish the other parts of you in the same way.
