We believe that through Ayurvedic medicine we can all get well, and stay well, as we get older.
This was an educational episode for me. I am taught one way of looking at mental illness and disease, through the l Western Medicine. I think episode my mind was opened to the idea of Ayurveda, which was an almost alien idea for me. I urge you to listen with curiosity, there’s nothing to lose and so much to learn.
You will find so much of today's lifestyle medicine (diet, exercise, mindfulness, mindset) is based on core principles of Ayurveda.
Rachel is taking on new clients and before releasing this episode I booked onto her programme. I hope to have her back so we can reflect on my experience and we can cover even more topics.
