    Ep #102: Allergies and Ayurveda

    Ep #102: Allergies and Ayurveda

    Spring allergies, seasonal allergies, hayfever, pet allergies, dust allergies. You name it, someone probably is allergic to it.

    In this episode we get to the root of WHY we have environmental allergies and how to solve the root cause, while also giving you remedies for symptomatic relief so you can start to feel better now.

    We also discuss the dosha interactions of allergies to see which dosha is most at cause and how to manage multiple dosha interactions.

    One aspect of managing allergies is to clear toxins from the body. Join the spring cleanse beginning April 13th to remove ama and help with any seasonal responses you may be experiencing. https://www.ayurvedalifeschool.com/seasonalcleanse

    Ep #101: Vata Dosha and Travel with Dr Victor Briere

    Ep #101: Vata Dosha and Travel with Dr Victor Briere

    Travel and movement in the body and mind can cause some serious aggravation to Vata dosha. When we move the body through traveling, or move the mind through excess motion, Vata dosha increases along with all the symptoms that come with it.

    In this episode I visit with Dr Victor Briere, an Ayurveda Doctor and founder of the International Institute of Ayurveda in California.

    Dr Briere shares with us his knowledge and experience as it pertains to Vata dosha and specific ways to decrease this dosha, how to adjust your diet when traveling for better balance, and touches on breath work and pulse diagnosis.

    His new book, Pulse Unveiled, The Art and Science of Ayurvedic Pulse Reading, is released later this month and can be preordered at http://www.iiayurveda.com/books and on Amazon.

    Dr Briere is also offering a fantastic online course this June to study pulse diagnosis in depth. You can learn more about this course at http://www.iiayurveda.com/ayurvedic-pulse-diagnostics.

    And a special gift to Ayurveda Life School Podcast listeners- 10% off the online pulse course.

    Now is a perfect time to prepare for your spring cleanse. Why not do it in a group with support? Join the 16 day Ayurveda Spring Cleanse online beginning April 13th. Learn more at https://www.ayurvedalifeschool.com/seasonalcleanse

Learning so much!

As a yoga teacher trainee I’m interested in learning more about Ayurveda and this podcast is an absolute wealth of knowledge. I can’t wait to incorporate these practices into my daily life and have already recommended the podcast to a few seasonal allergy friends!

Thank you Heather - your podcast is brilliant! It’s easy to understand, entertaining and above all informative and inspirational. I’m fairly new to Ayurveda. It’s been something I’ve dipped in and out of over the past few years and although I religiously tongue scrape, mediate and do yoga I’m now ready to learn and live a more Ayurvedic way of life. This podcast has helped me move forward and I really appreciate everything you do. Thank you again:)
