I had the honor of speaking with Dr. Vikram Chauhan about healing modern Western diseases with Ayurveda. What I love is that he reinforces how the mind, body, and spirit all have to be healed together, the definition of holistic medicine, and how they are all contributors to disease in the physical body.

How long does it take to Dial in Ayurveda Habits?

On today’s podcast with Alex Biondo, we look at how long it takes to dial in our Ayurvedic habits and why it’s important that we create these lifelong routines for ourselves. Many of us who participate in detoxes, cleanse groups, or my Body Thrive group, know what it is like to experience the light, clear, balanced feelings that come from eating cleanly and taking care of our bodies on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.
