    Anger: Perspective from The Wisdom of Ayurveda

    in Health

    This month of November 2015, Nick & Joanna will be talking about Anger; first discussing the perspecive of Ayurveda on this intense and sometimes mysterious and dangerous emotion, and then on the 25th, as it relates to Domestic Violence and how hypnosis can be a  helpful tool for addressing and manging it.


    As with all things in Ayurveda, we go back to the doshas.  Anger is primarily a Pitta emotion (Fire). The fire of Pitta, when out of balance can rage out of control and create havoc emotionally.  And as Ayurveda views all symptoms, we ask the question, what is it telling us; about our physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual well-being? 


    Are there some people who are just prone to an anger response when under stress?  Should anger always be judged as a bad thing? Is it ever justified? What can be done to manage anger from a Vedic perspective?


    We will be talking about these things and more as well as providing some suggestions for keeping that internal fire burning brightly, but not out of control.  


    On the 25th, the focus will be on hypnotherapy as a tool to deal with anger as well as answer all of the questions above, from the perspecive of the hypnotherapist. We will also be focusing on domestic violence as a serious problem in our culture that must be addressed, and what we can do individually and collectively to be a part of the solution. It's more than just raising awareness.

    Healing with Ayurveda with Guest Michelle Fondin

    in Motivation

    Ayurveda, the “science of life,” is a complete wellness system that includes all that we associate with medical care — prevention of disease, observation, diagnosis, and treatment — as well as self-care practices that are generally absent from Western medicine.


    Author Michelle Fondin discovered this 5,000-year-old tradition when she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Ayurveda resonated with her because she was searching for ways to understand why she had become ill and actively participate in her healing — rather than simply turning it over to experts and protocols. Join us as Michelle shares her expertise with us!


    Michelle S. Fondin is the author of The Wheel of Healing with Ayurveda. She holds a Vedic Master Certificate from the Chopra Center and is a member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association and Yoga Alliance. She treats clients at her Ayurvedic Path center, speaks and offers workshops, and lives in Herndon, Virginia.

    Ayurveda Curious? Learn from our Guest Expert, Jeevani Eigen

    in Health

    I am a yoga-loving American woman, having practiced for over a decade, but still don't know much about Ayurveda.  If you're like me, Ayurveda curious, then enjoy this new podcast with my old friend, Jeevani Eigen.  


    Jeevani will give us some context, taking the elements and how they influence Ayurvedic theory.  Then we'll dive into one theory within Ayurveda, the tri-doshic theory.  


    The three doshas are:  Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.  When there are imbalances in these subtle energies, it can signal a pre-curser to disease.  For show notes, including a description of the 3 doshas and Jeevani's resources, please follow this link to our blog.

    Can't Sleep? Ayurveda Offers Non-pharmaceutical Solutions

    in Health

    In Ayurveda, we say that poor nutrition is the mother of all disease... and Insomnia is the father!  


    Many people today have simply gotten used to being sleep deprived and think it is normal. Meanwhile, the body, mind, emotions and spirit suffer from not getting adequate rest.


    Today, Nick and Dr. Joanna will discuss the way that Ayurveda views insomnia and how knowing your unique constitution as well as other contributing imbalances that can help or hinder your ability to sleep well. 


    In the western medicine treatment model, (treat the symptom, not the cause), Insomnia is usually treated with toxic medications that can become addicting or cause other side effects (that will be treated with yet another drug).  And did you know that one of the side effects of certain medications is that they can cause that symptom that they are designed to treat? So why take a toxic drug when you can treat the problem with some simple, yet effective lifestyle practices based on a system of ancient wisdom that helps you live in harmony with the cyclic rhythms of nature rather than against them. An Ayurvedic lifestyle can have you feeling better in no time and the practices are deceptively simple yet impactful.


    Find us at www.thekalyanacentre.com / www.drjoannacarmichael.com 484-412-8815  If you have learned to live with insomnia or any other health concern that is not in alignment with being in perfect health & wellbeing, give us a call and receive 20% off your initial consultation with Nick or Joanna when you mention this show!

    Spring Cleaning Time! Detoxification for Body, Mind & Soul Through Ayurveda

    in Health

    It's Spring Cleaning Time!  Every year around this time, people are usually thinking about detoxification.... and they should be! The change of season is an excellent time to be thinking about cleaning out, and that means your body/mind and emotions too!  This is also usually a time of year when people are thinking about losing those few pounds that were gained during the colder months of eating heavier food. Today Nick & Joanna will be talking about detoxification strategies from the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. Some of the questions we will be answering are:


    Why do we need to detox? Is detox a quick fix for weight loss?  Are weight loss drugs the answer? 


    Is detox only about the body? In addition to cleaning up your diet, what about clearing out those other things that no longer serve you like toxic relationships, jobs, habits, reactions, clutter, addictions, medications?  What have you simply gotten used to living with that you have come to view as "normal" - like insomnia, anxiety, and depression? 


    We'll talk about how Ayurveda views detoxification and the concept of "perpetual renewal". 


    How do we detox emotionally? Where does meditation/yoga/contemplation fit in to the bigger picture.  Everything is interconencted! 


    What simple strategies can you implement at home to start the process?  Simple strategies like meditation, yoga, pranayama (breathing), Abhyanga (Ayurvedic self-massage), and more...
