There will NOT be personal advise on health as Ayurveda cannot be done by phone, by mail or even internet. The importance of seeing the patient and studying the pathology is the most important thing. Otherwise any so called advise is just symptomatic and not really Ayurveda which treats dosha as the cause of pathology (CS, Su Ch 1.57)

I’m not doing Ayurveda anymore

I’m not doing Ayurveda anymore This is what a patient sent me by email the other day. For me this is a total misunderstanding of what Ayurveda is and represents as a vision of health care. Ayur means life, so if I say “I’m not doing Ayurveda anymore” it really means, “I am dead” or “I want to die”. Another line I have heard is “I’m doing a little Ayurveda” which means, “I am only partially (...)

Ayurvedic Psychology

The use of essential oils in Ayurveda

The use of essential oils is very common today. Unfortunately, there is a new tendency to use essential oils internally and externally as medicines. I am not sure why or where this bad habit began, but it is a modern development based on a “quick fix” mentality. Certainly there is an economic aspect to it because essential oils have a very long shelf life. According to Ayurveda it is certain (...)

Castor oil is the only oil that removes ama and congested mala or kapha when used with heat. It will reduce tumors and any excess tissues. It reduces vata strongly.
