As an Ayurvedic Author and Educator, I can confidently say we are more NEEDED and WANTED than ever before.
People have become tired of fad diets, nutritional trends and untested theories that end up causing long-term damage on our metabolisms, hormones and health.
I’ve seen people go keto and find themselves constantly angry. Go Paleo and find their pH levels totally acidic. Go raw vegan and find themselves weak and nutritionally deficient (I’ve done all myself, as well.)
Ayurveda is the world’s oldest health system, originating in ancient India over 5000 years ago, and is the basis of herbology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Macrobiotics and even Western medicine (see chapter 1 of my book Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda to see how Ayurveda moved across the silk road.)
It is safe to say Ayurveda has surpassed the test of time.
People are finally going BACK to what has withstood over 5000 years of trial-and-error on real human bodies and has continued to work.
Why does Ayurveda work so well? Because there is no one size-fits-all answers. The right diet for me won’t be the same as that for you. The one that works for me in the Spring will not be the same that works in the winter. We are changing beings, unique combinations of the Doshas or energy types, therefore our diet and lifestyle must match out needs.
In the episode, we speak about everything from:
- How he went from a Harvard-trained mathematician to becoming a leader in the Ayurveda industry
- The path of becoming an Ayurvedic Practitioner
- Understanding your dual-Dosha
- The key physical signs of each Dosha
- Digestion from an Ayurvedic Perspective
- and so much more!
was the most helpful resource for me while writing my books Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda and Eat Feel Fresh. While searching high-and-low for an accredited, online Ayurveda certification program with live calls, Joyful Belly came to me like a blessing from the sky. It’s been my go-to source of Ayurvedic wisdom for the past three years and at the forefront of the Ayurveda movement. Just like me, the founder John Immel blends ancient Ayurvedic knowledge with modern nutritional science, making it accessible and relatable for today’s day-and-age.
