Since the email about my story with PCOS I have been getting messages from you asking for help and advice. Many of you also want to know exactly what I did to overcome it.
The holiday season is in full swing! Christmas is just a day away and in a week we will be entering 2014! This week is the last push of the year. Last minute presents, huge family dinner, crazy New Years parties, and voila: coming into the new year drained, fatigued, and heavy… Probably, not the way you wanted to happen.
I am really excited to officially share the first 2 videos from the Ayurveda For Life youtube show.
Last week I shared my experience of writing my own prescription. It was a great reminder that my body know what it needs to feel vibrant and healthy. If you want to learn to write your own prescription, order Lissa’s Rankin new book Mind Over Medicine.
Usually, only boys discuss poop with each other and make a big deal out of being constipated. Girls are not supposed to get involved into the dirty boys’ talk. Well, I will break this rule for today.
A few days ago I wrote about listening to your body when it comes to finding a perfect personalized diet. Today I want to share my story about finding a perfect personalized workout method using your body’s feedback and some common sense.
Many people get sick after being at the airports and taking long flights. Traveling can be a real challenge to our immune system: stress, breaking the routine, not-so-great food, exposure to sick people, environmental toxins, and a ton of bacteria circling through the A/C. Jet lag and heavy holiday dinners can make the matters even worse.
Recently, many of my friends were complaining of increased bloating and digestive un-ease. Not a pleasant feeling but quite expected during the cold windy Fall! While there are some effective bloating-busting tricks, food is one of the main ones. During the times when your belly feels overtaxed and not happy, one of the ways to help it heal is to be kind to it. Easy-to digest food made with foods that combine well together and spiced with digestion stimulating spices is the best way to go!
Candy, chocolate, cookies, and cupcakes… Cacao, spiced apple cider, and pumpkin spice lattes… Mmm… Halloween weekend is here along with its colorful multitude of sugary treats and fall-inspired drinks. While ghouls and goblins might be scared away by half-naked girls running around the Halloween party circuit here in New York City, us yogis are probably scared of falling out of sync with our wellness routines — which is, unfortunately, often a consequence of the upcoming holidays.
