Ep #335 – Alicia Diaz – How To Improve Digestion & Take Care Of Ourselves In All The Cycles Of Life Using Ancient Ayurvedic Principles

Shares

alicia_diaz_bio-picAlicia Diaz joined us today all the way from sunny San Diego! Perhaps next time we can do a show with her in studio and get more in depth into the principles of Ayurveda.

We have been heavily into studying Ayurvedic medicine recently. I have known about Ayurveda for many many years but never gave it much thought because I thought I had everything sort of “figured out”.

God was I wrong.

As many of you know Kate and I have been on a journey of healing our digestive systems and learning as many different modalities as possible which help to heal the gut.

So having Alicia Diaz on the show was a real treat and just so happened to be at the right time for us.

We talked with Alicia about her work and her journey into Ayurveda and what a dramatic impact that has had in her life. She now helps clients from all over the world explore the 5,000 year old principles of Ayurveda into their own lives.

We talked about many issues but here are a couple we covered from the chat room you might enjoy….

Carly: Can you talk about getting live enzymes and the benefits of raw foods when we potentially are more ‘Vata’ or windy and are recommended via Ayurveda to have cooked food only?

Jess: wondering if personality plays a role in doshas as well. I have taken physiological personality tests and been told i have a split personality being an introvert and extrovert.. and after taking the dosha quiz and having equal amounts of all three makes me think the doshas effect our personality

FruityJess: Wondering if your body type changes as you heal and detox..?

One of the main topics of this discussion was understanding the three doshas (body types) of the body which are pita, kapha, vata. She mentioned that before she gets her clients to understand how their doshas play a role in their health, she first teaches them a foundation for self care and listening to their bodies.

Listening to what our bodies are telling us is critical if we want to live in harmony with all the phases of life. As in the macrocosm so in the microcosm.

Just like each year is broken up into seasons, and each season breaks down into months our lives do the same thing. Each day and each hour can be looked at in comparison with the bigger cycles of the earth and universe.

If you’d like some really interesting information about eating on time, I would HIGHLY suggest you take a look at a book called Yes, No Maybe by our good friend and long time guest Atom Bergstrom. I believe his work fits in beautifully with the principles of Ayurveda.
