I was first introduced to Ayurveda in 1997, and was trained by the wellness company I was working for. It wasn't until 15 years later, when I was drowning in stress, lack of sleep, a poor diet and no exercise that I remembered learning about the "doshas" and something drew me back to pick up my Ayurveda book (after I dusted it off!) and began implementing some of the suggestions. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I did my best to follow along.
After my mother had passed away from brain and lung cancer (she had also had breast cancer 12 years prior and throat cancer nine years prior) I really took a look at my health and decided I really wanted to be in control of it and not leave it up to the doctors to treat a preventative disease down the road. That's when I began attending the Chopra Center for Wellbeing and immersed myself into the study of Ayurveda. It is a lifelong study, and I was able to learn from some of the top Ayurveda Medical Doctors in the United States!

What Is Ayurveda? By Deepak Chopra, M.D.
Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential.
The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are 1) the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and 2) nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind. Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. This process isn’t as complicated as it may sound. For example, when you meditate you effortlessly enter a state of expanded awareness and inner quiet that refreshes the mind and restores balance. Since the mind and body are inseparable, the body is naturally balanced through the practice of meditation. In the state of restful awareness created through meditation, your heart rate and breath slow, your body decreases the production of “stress” hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, and you increase the production of neurotransmitters that enhance wellbeing, including serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphins.
