Hello Pam! No need to apologize! Ayurveda teaches us that life goes in cycles, some are up times, some down. I also have depression and (anxiety) and can understand the challenges.

Team, I encourage you to let me and Pam know how we (and the Team) can support you in your Ayurvedic health efforts. Message us, post here on the boards, holler at us...

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Welcome to the team, ladies!! Very late to you, Julee; and, I am sorry. emoticon

No excuse except that life, my numerous health issues, family issues, depression related to, and exacerbated by, the other issues have knocked me down and threatened to bury me over the last several months--much worse the past 2 months. I need to regain control, stop the downward spiral and start taking steps up ward again!

Return to Rural, I have added you as a Co-Leader of this team! emoticon I am grateful to have you join and be interested in all things Ayurveda, the team, and getting us going again. Maybe you are just the "Spark" that I needed! I truly look forward to getting to know you and being able to brainstorm and come up with ideas to energize the team!

Julee, I hope that you and some of the previous members are still out there and still interested in Ayurveda and will jump on board with us. I appreciate your interest and patience so much!

Peace and Blessings to you all, Pam emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm new to SP and new to this group. I have been learning about Ayurveda for the past couple years. I hope to find some new friends who are also interested in Ayurveda. I noticed that the team leader hasn't posted anything in a while so I submitted a co-leader request. Maybe we can get things moving here again? There's certainly a lot to talk about when it comes to Ayurveda!

Feel free to friend me!

I want to make ayurveda part of my life but am confused on where to begin.

I am still out here in the fringes...and very interested in Ayurveda. Obviously have not been here for my teams the past several months. emoticon emoticon

Is anyone still interested in this team? Would anyone like to be a Co-Leader to help get it up and going and infused with some new energy? emoticon

Or, should we let the team pass on in peace? emoticon emoticon emoticon

I see you are the Team Leader now, Pam. This journey into Ayurvedic concepts is one I am interested in. Thank you for keeping this Team going.

Hello! Hope you all are well and getting very knowledgeable about the wonders of Ayurveda! emoticon emoticon

I have a number of issues going on in my life and with my health and they all came crashing in on me a few weeks ago...not an excuse, just a confession...so I haven't been able mentally/emotionally to be here. I just logged in and did spin the wheel, tracked foods and steps a few days... I'm trying to find my way back into the light now! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Don't give up on this team either! I am certainly not an expert on Ayurveda--trying to learn and incorporate all that I can into my life...I hope you will continue the journey with me! emoticon

Brightest blessings, Pam

Dr. Lad and his wife also have a cookbook... emoticon

Happy Saturday! Re-posting a message I had posted in a couple of other teams...not an Ayurveda 101; but, some places to start! emoticon emoticon

I have been interested in natural healing for many years and have quite a library (it keeps growing!) Lately, I have had an amazingly strong pull toward Ayurveda...

Deepak Chopra has always been one of my FAVORITES; he has many, many books (see "Perfect Health") and can get deep into the quantum physics; some of which is over my head! I actually got to see him live once at a conference in Albuquerque! I was star-struck! LOL Of his many books, a good one to start is, “Perfect Health - The Complete Guide Holistic Mind|Body Living”. There is an interactive Dosha QUIZ on his website that is fun and very easy to use; you establish your basic dosha and current balance/imbalance-then, you can find which treatments or supplements and diet would benefit you based on the dosha. On the web:
store.chopra.com (Products, link to “Take the Dosha Quiz”-your FIRST STEP!)
www.chopra.com (General website, programs, info, guided meditations, blogs…)

The book that I am currently reading is "Ayurveda The Science of Self-Healing" by Dr. Vasant Lad. I purchased this one thru Amazon. Dr. Lad is the founder of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, NM. The Institute’s website is: www.ayurveda.com .

The Online Resource tab ayurveda.com/online_resource/index.h
tm
l
takes you to a list of FREE pages that you can print out, including, general info, food and nutrition, cleansing procedures, and recipes. Great SECOND STEP while you find/get books:
ayurveda.com/pdf/intro_ayurve
da.pdf

ayurveda.com/online_resource/daily_r
ou
tine.html


They also have a store, offer seminars, etc. in addition to the school. Dr. Lad has numerous books in print as well.

I belong to One Spirit Book Club www.onespirit.com and get many of my natural healing, wiccan, self-help books from them. I have just received “The Ayurveda Bible” by Anne McIntyre; looks good...

Finally, I have been taking some Ayurvedic supplements and teas from Organic India. I started some in January, added more just recently. I can tell already that they have helped with some of my issues...There is a lot of educational info on their website:
organicindiausa.com/.

I do believe that Ayurveda is something worth learning about and trying; it definitely addresses mind, body and soul/spirit, and has been around for thousands of years!

I hope that this is helpful to you...I don't know about the team leader-I have not seen any posts since I joined the team...

Bright Blessings, have a wonderful weekend! Namaste, Pam

can you create a starters guide on ayurveda, like a 101 where you begin, what it includes, how do you begin, rituals, etc

( only those who risk going to far know how far they can go)

the only thing you can't do ....is what you dont think you can do!!!!!.

I am new too.... to the team and ayurveda. I’m still learning and eating different. I love what it's doing to my body in many ways. Hope the team keeps going, would be nice to share recipes in subcategories of doshas?? Ayurveda helps me with food cravings or "lack of" I should say!
