Mental Health| The Ayurveda Experience | Pay What You Want | 70% Comm

I learned that my son, being very Vata in nature, was experiencing a Vata imbalance that showed up as ADHD. So I set about putting him on a Vata balancing routine. Instead of giving him cold cereal for breakfast, I made him fresh oatmeal in the morning. I taught him how to meditate, and how to do abhyanga, I made sure my son had a regular routine, and I started to see a difference in his behavior, and his teacher did, too. She allowed my son to finish out the year with his class.

When my son was diagnosed with ADHD, I learned that this is a genetic condition, and that he got it from me! 

Knowing this made a lot of what I had been through in my childhood make sense to me – a low sense of self-esteem, struggles in school, and socially, and difficulty in getting and staying organized.

Once I got myself on the Vata routine, I felt much more focused. So much so that I’ve been able to write 8 books!

My relationships flourish, not only because I understand myself better, but because I also understand other people and their own natures so much better. I feel more confident, happy, and my anxiety has diminished.

There have been many other times when I have used the wisdom of Ayurveda to overcome challenges in my life. When I was going through a divorce, I was stressed out and filled with anxiety. Yet Ayurveda got me through. I stuck to my daily routine, and especially my Vata rituals, and I got through it with grace and ease. 

When my brother-in-law died, I felt a deep depression coming on. Knowing that depression is a Kapha imbalance, I stuck to my routine and applied some of the Kapha balancing techniques, and I got through it. I was able to support my sister, and deal with all the sadness and turmoil going on in my family. I was the one that the family looked to for stability and strength, and thanks to Ayurveda, I was able to be there for them.

When I went through menopause, I never had to take hormones, I never had a serious hot flash, I never suffered any of the side effects or symptoms that my friends complained about. Menopause was easy for me, and I know it was all because I incorporated the 3-Step Process, applying the principles of Ayurveda to my life.
