I didn't know there is an Ayurvedic team until I saw it on MJ's page, so I decided to join. I've been reading up on Ayurvedic to research for a friend with a heart condition and for my own discovery of hypertension early this year. I have bought a few books on the subject already. Hope to have a nice discussion about Ayurvedic with other members. Thanks.

Hi I'm MJ and the Ayurveda health plan is a new avenue for me. I caught the show on Dr. Oz and I was definitely interested! One Sparker said we should start a team. Well I looked it up and here you are! Yippppppeeeee. (Saved me from becoming a Team leader!) lol Anyway I want to learn more about it first.

Hello All! I am also somewhat new to Spark and I am very interested in Ayurveda. I have practiced Yoga for many years but fell out of practice when I became pregnant with my third child. I was unable to be out of bed for the last few months of my pregnancy. Now I am re-inventing myself again...ha,ha,ha. I would love to introduce Ayurveda into my home as a lifestyle change. But I need to feel confident that it will be received by my two teenagers, my boyfriend and of course myself. Thank you for having a team to come to when I have questions that need answers or just for some knowledge on the subject.

Hello! My name is T. I am new to SP and happy to have found this group. I hope we can get it hopping again. I have been interested in Ayurveda for several years. I enjoy reading books about it and trying new recipes. I'm trying to integrate Ayurvedic principles into my weight loss journey.

Hello everyone! I am Alicia. I discovered Ayurveda about 5-6 years ago. I have incorporated parts of the practice into my life but have yet to delve completely into it. I suffer from seasonal allergies and congestion, and have found that using the neti pot has helped a great deal in that.
My Dosha is always bidoshic between Kapha and Vata. Pitta is nil more often then not.
As I start my lifestyle change, I am incorporating Ayurveda for my morning routine waking before sunrise, drinking lemon water, using my neti pot, tongue scraper along with brushing teeth, face wash and a nice shower. Drops of sesame oil in the ears and nostrils. Healthy breakfast.
I'd like to get eye cups and a nice eye wash.
Anyhoo. That's my introduction. Nice to meet all of you. Do we have Ayurvedic goals? That would be nice to add to my SP goals.

Welcome KUNJU108! Glad to you join us. I am looking forward to drawing on your wealth of experience. Our team has a tendency to be "inactive" on these message boards so we welcome any information / ideas you wish to share.
I discovered ayurveda a few years ago after being vegan for about 5 years. (my husband is vegan). I am still amazed at the power of food to so alter a person. I was a different person from the one I knew myself to be, and getting sicker. Being a vata, the complete absence of all animal products from my diet really did a number on me. My husband is still vegan, which works well for him as he is a pitta. This makes meals challenging.
I'm happy to get to know everyone.

hi everyone, my name is mile and i am from india. i currently working abroad as a nurse. i can remember my mom making me mouth watering rotis, vegs and soup according to ayurveda. but i was not interested in cooking that time. but after leaving home and i started my own cooking , i was lost. i soon started getting takeaways eating 2 packets of instant noodles 4-5 times a day!!!!. needless to say i put on 6 stones in a matter of 6-8 months.i am trying to lose the weight for the past few yrs and the only one that worked was ayurvedic cooking.i came across sparkpeople the other night and was elated. i am looking for a buudy, i will be doing blogs on my ayurvedic cooking once a week from april onwards.

Hi! I'm Cheryl, and I recently discovered Ayurveda in a search for health. I'm almost 50, and I have been feeling awful for a couple of years due to an autoimmune disorder. I'm trying to learn more about an Ayurvedic lifestyle, especially as regards diet, and I hope you'll share your knowledge and experience here. I do know that since I gave up dairy in April, I feel much better, and I've lost 50 lbs. I still have so much to learn!
