    Guest - Michelle Fondin author of "The Wheel of Healing with Ayurveda"

    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.

    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...

    Pregnancy, Childbirth & Early Motherhood; How Can Hypnosis Help?

    in Health

    In the second of this two part series, Nick & Joanna will talk about how hypnosis can be helpful to decrease stress in pregnancy, prepare and experiecne ease in childbirth, and continue to reduce stress in early motherhood.  Part I focused on how Ayurveda views conception and pregnancy and how this conscious approach can benefit Mother and Baby. Find part I here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/kalyana/2015/08/12/pregnancy-childbirth-early-motherhood-an-ayurvedic-perspective


    This is a very important and tender time for both Mother and Baby and hypnosis is a wonderful tool that can have tremendous benefits not only to the mind and emotions, but also to the physical body. In keeping with an Ayurvedic approach and focus on self care, hypnotherapy definitely has some practical and helpful benefits.  It all boils down to self-care where the most important aspect is consciousness. Even before conception is planned, care should be taken that Mother and Father are in the best of health so that their creation can have the best start; not only being in good health physically but also within their relationship to provide a loving, joyful environment in which the child will learn and grow.


    Learn also how hypnosis can help mom and baby have an easeful time in the birth process that reduces stress and pain so the use of pharmaceuticals can be reduced or eliminated.
