Have you heard of the term Ayurveda and wondered what it’s all about? Or maybe you already know the basics, but would like to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of this system of medicine, which is over five thousand years old. Divya Alter is a chef, entrepreneur, teacher, nutritional coach, and author of the best-selling cookbook, "What To Eat For How You Feel". In the first episode of the Our Nature podcast, Divya shares her incredible journey from growing up in Bulgaria, discovering Ayurveda and healing her autoimmune condition, to eventually finding success in New York City with her cookbook and her restaurant, Divya’s Kitchen. This episode is for anyone who is currently struggling with their health, who wants to feel better and prevent disease, who is interested in Ayurveda, or who is simply curious about alternative ways of healing.
