I Took The Free Ayurvedic Quiz. Is Ayurvedic Healing For You?

 Ayurvedic medicine has been around for about 3000 years. Originating in India, there have been many aspects of it that have flourished here in the states. Think about the practice of meditation, and the benefits it has in our busy lives. It gives us a chance to manage the stress we see every single day. Essential oils and aromatherapy also branch out from Ayurvedic Medicine. Yoga is another beneficial branch of the practice. There is also the nutritional aspect. The herb turmeric is renowned for its cleansing of toxins inside the body.


I have utilized every one of those branches of Ayurvedic holistic practices at one time or another in my own life. None of them have necessarily been used simultaneously. But rather, at the time that they presented themselves and at a time when I needed them most.

At their roots in India, Ayurvedic practices have been described as very earthy and even primitive. I have a friend who actually visited India for a good length of time and was able to participate in the native Ayurvedic Medicine. She said there were many  more varied techniques, different from the things we have taken and assimilated here in our western culture. She talked about extremely hot massage techniques with heated oils and stones, a cleansing steam treatment that encompassed everything except the head, and was extremely hot! She talked about healing medicine for the scalp that included invertebrates.  

I love living in the U.S. because there are so many different cultures blended here, with various healing arts from food to medicines. It seems to me that the best mind and body techniques usually surface and become mainstream in some form or fashion. I love to take advantage of the best of these and incorporate them into my own life. For instance, during the past 6 months I started drinking an herbal Ayurvedic tea in the mornings and the results have been amazing! The hand excema that I usually get in the summer has been virtually eradicated. I feel like this drink has a lot to do with that!

I took the quiz and received an initial consultation for review purposes

I recently had the opportunity to have an Ayurvedic consultation with a dedicated practitioner and healer who is based out of Spain and lives in Ibizia, where the beautiful Balearic islands are located. She has dedicated her life to the Ayurvedic lifestyle and practices healing and health. Her name is Sophie Foucher and she is the founder of Sadhana Journey. She has an impressive resume of schooling and experience in India. Here is just some of what she has done to gain her knowledge and expertise.
