What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda, also known as Ayurvedic Medicine, is the traditional medicine of India, which originated there over 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda emphasizes re-establishing balance in the body through diet, lifestyle, exercise, and body cleansing, and on the health of the mind, body, and spirit.
In North America, Ayurveda is considered a form of alternative medicine. Like traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is a whole medical system, meaning that it is based on theories of health and illness and on methods of preventing and treating health conditions.
Because of its growing popularity, Ayurvedic treatments, particularly at spas and salons, are increasingly being performed by people who have not received formal training in Ayurveda. That’s why if you are interested in consulting with an Ayurvedic practitioner, it is important to seek a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner and learn about their training.
Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC staff are all certified and proud graduates of Kerala Ayurveda Academy with roots from India as well as Professional Members of National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA).
We look forward to working with you….either virtually or in our office as of June 8 reopening date!

Oh how we love garlic and it’s importance as an medicinal herb. It is antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral.
It is seen as a preventive measure for colds and flu and will offer natural support to the immune system. Through the lens of Ayurveda, garlic kindles agni (digestive fires), destroys natural toxins, supports the lungs and clears excess kapha. (Spring is Kapha season)
Share in the comments below how you use garlic in your diet.

Spring is a perfect time to detox and reset of our digestive fires (Agni) to help remove built up toxins (Ama) from the heavy winter diet.

As the sister science of Ayurveda, a yoga practice can boost energy in the body. (this is a fluid situation so date will be announced)
It’s all about the Agni (digestive fire)?
Through the lens of #Ayurveda, #Agni is the most important factor in determining ones dietary needs.
In Ayurveda we say “you are not what you eat, you are what you digest”
At Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC we work with many clients whose agni is either too low or too high and once balanced are amazed at how well they feel.
Causes of weak Agni:
Eating the same foods
Drinking too much water with meals
Eating at irregular times
Staying up late
Not exercising enough
Eating out of accordance with one’s constitution
Resisting the urge to eat
Not sure if yours is low or high?

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC
shares our favorite Thanksgiving Recipes for your Dosha….
These simple roasted veggie recipes make perfect Thanksgiving side dishes for each dosha. Roasting vegetables brings out the sweetness in veggies and is great for the holiday season. The Vata and Pitta recipes feature sweet veggies, while the kapha recipes features bitter and astringent roasted veggies.
Pitta – Roasted Fennel
Fennel is great for pitta types. Start with two whole bunches. Chop off the tops and cut the stalks into bite-sized pieces. Toss with around two tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt, spread on a cookie sheet or in a roasting pan, and roast at 350 for 30 minutes. Place in a bowl, squeeze the juice of a half lemon over it, and give it a good toss. Place the fennel on a platter and dot small pieces of goat cheese over it.

Ancient is the New New…
With chronic disease at epidemic proportions around the world, the need for novel preventive and health-restoring solutions is urgent.
Modern research reveals that dramatic reductions in cardiovascular and other chronic disease is possible through lifestyle intervention, however the knowledge base is fragmented, often inconsistent and insufficient to motivate many patients.
Ayurvedic knowledge offers a powerful added dimension of diagnosis, prevention and care through personalization, chronotherapeutics and medical foods and herbs based on the tridosha system that is appealing to the patient, “makes sense,” and is supported by a growing body of research.
Let us introduce you to yourself. Call us to set up a private consultation.

The Fall Equinox marks the beginning of Autumn and through the lens of #Ayurveda It marks the beginning of Vata Season. Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC suggests a few tips for staying balanced through the transition.
Autumn being cool, dry and windy season means that the Vata elements of air, light, dry, rough, subtle and mobile qualities are present.
Your skin may start to feel dry, tight and a bit rough. A Vata imbalance can make you feel fidgety, lack of focus, ungrounded and/or spaced out.
You may experience constipation, bloating, anxiety, joint pain and/or insomnia.

All work no play makes an immune-deficient body.
In Ayurveda, Ojas is our protection, our immunity from disease.
Try a few of these tips from Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC to build up your Ojas…or contact us for a private consultation…
Building your Physical Ojas:
• Eat Seasonally. If we eat what is offered by nature seasonally and without much processing, our ojas will tend to be strong. We will then naturally crave that which is attuned to our constitution (Body type/Dosha).
• Move your breath through your body for 20 minutes upon arising.
• Cleanse or Detox in the Fall and Spring. Ama (undigested foods and experiences that store in our bodies) When Ama is less, ojas is more.
• Eat 2-3 meals a day. Allowing proper time for complete digestion enables ojas to be formed. Eating too frequently creates ama.
• Sip hot water throughout the day. Sipping hot water will clear your channels of ama and refresh the space.
Building Ojas in the Mind Body:
• Meditate Daily. Allowing time and space for the digestion of mental impressions clears the confusion and mental ama (toxins).
• Self-massage with warm oil (sesame) before showering will help to nurture your nerves, which enables ojas to spread throughout you.
• Create space for down time. The feeling of shared joy, laughter and feeling alive, boosts ojas. Make time each day for a dose.

The heat of August is starting to take it’s toll on drying us out. Yes, it’s true….but pears and cucumbers can assist us.
Pears are ripe and ready to be enjoyed in August. Their demulcent qualities soothe and coat an inflamed digestive tract. A tall glass of this fresh juice will freshen the mind too, adding a splash of cool to a heated mood.
