Shirodhara: A Proper Dhara

by Dinesh Mader, LMT

"Thou anointist my head with oil... my cup runneth over...."

Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of health care and maintenance. The Ayurvedic approach is not limited to any particular diet, herbal formulation, or treatment. An appropriate health regime is determined for each individual depending on one's inherent humoral balance, as well as age, mental capacity, digestive power, compatibility with food, elimination habits, and many other considerations. Treatment in Ayurveda may involve a change of diet, change of lifestyle and habits, herbal regime, internal cleansing, and elimination of accumulated humoral waste.

The Breath in the Stone

by Karyn Chabot, D.Ay.,LMT

“Stones are alive, but they are in a sweet coma.” - Dr. Vasant Lad

Some of the most progressive healers in the world have begun using stones in their massage work — not to replace the healing hand, but as an adjunct to traditional massage, facials and healing treatments of all kinds. Stone massage is an ancient, enduring form of therapeutic bodywork using heated and cooled stones as extensions of the hand. It is a harmonious collaboration of healing energies between the client, the therapist, the divine and the stones. Be mindful that the beauty of this therapy, and all therapies, is manifested by the transference of deep compassion and trust between the therapist and the client. This compassion becomes imprinted within the matrix of each stone.

Ayurvedic Strengthening of The Immune System

by Light Miller, N.D.

In today’s busy society, our immune system is continuously compromised. We spend long periods in automobiles inhaling traffic exhaust, on airline flights in confined spaces, working on computers indoors, often under fluorescent lighting, exposing ourselves to chemicals from synthetic fabrics, paint fumes, cleaning solvents—environmental hazards which are part of modern living. Daily, newspapers are filled with stories of auto-immune diseases and the drugs developed to counteract these diseases. Our body struggles to protect itself from these environmental offenders, yet over time the continual battle to maintain basic health depletes our immune system and symptoms of low ojas begin to manifest.

The Thatched Hut Diet: Prevention through Healthy Elimination

by Jay Glaser, M.D.

During my third year in medical school, I went to Zululand to pursue research on tuberculosis. The British surgeon at the hospital wrote me to come in September, and several hours after stepping off the train I found out why. Most Zulu men worked in the diamond and gold mines hundreds of miles to the north and only came home at Christmas. In September we were inundated with the resulting births!
