#42 Ayurveda for tailor made health care with caryn ohara

Self Care is the new health care, and the ancient practice of Ayurveda, often referred to as the sister of yoga, which focuses on nutrition and gut health, has made a well-deserved come back to the broader public awareness. I'm joined today by Ayurvedic health counselor and colon cancer survivor, Caryn Ohara. Be sure to grab a notebook and pen! 

In today's episode, you'll get the download on what Ayurveda is all about and we go over each of the 3 doshas (energies), including how to know what type you are and what kind of self care practices or exercises best suit your type. It's a lot to digest (pun intended!), so grab a notebook and you'll be itching to get your very own Ayurvedic appointment!
