Doesn't seem to be very active? I am hoping with more interest that, that will turn it around. I would think whomever saw Dr. Oz's show, would.

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.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.

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.

Hi everyone,

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!

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
