338: How to Harness The Power of Ayurveda and Achieve Optimal Wellness with Dr. Avanti


Did you know that the secrets to vitality and self-healing have been around for the past 5000 years?

It may sound like some archaic tradition, but you’ll recognize the intuitive healing wisdom of Ayurveda deeply ingrained in many of the things that we do in our daily lives.

Dr. Avanti is the author of The Health Catalyst: How to Harness the Power of Ayurveda and Achieve Optimal Wellness, and the podcast host of The Healing Catalyst Podcast. After struggling with stress and burnout at the peak of her medical training, Dr. Avanti started seeing the limitations of modern medicine and decided to seek answers to practices that were close to her roots.

In our latest episode of The Food Heals Podcast, I invited Dr. Avanti Kumar Singh to help us demystify the ancient practice of Ayurveda and how we can start applying it to achieve and maintain optimal health in our modern lives.

In her journey of learning and practicing Ayurveda to heal herself, she started teaching her patients the same principles and saw firsthand how they achieved results beyond what Western medicine could explain.

Today, Dr. Avanti successfully combines her training in Western medicine and her deep understanding of Ayurvedic principles to help others discover a more holistic and effective approach to healing.
