Summary key points of this interview:

  • Ayurveda is a science that aims to use food, lifestyle activities, and routines to balance out the energetic composition or dosha of a person to bring about optimal health mentally, physically, and spiritually. .

  • A dosha is a specific type of energetic makeup that a person can have. There are 3 doshas: kapha, pitta, and vata. These energetic qualities are composed of the elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. Vata: air/space. Pitta: Fire/water. Kapha: earth/water.

  • We are composed of all 3 doshas, but usually one or two are dominant. The objective of Ayurveda is to bring all 3 of these doshas into balance.

  • These doshas govern certain times of life, certain times of day, and certain times of year. The fall/winter time is the vata time.

  • Prakriti is our individual constitution of dosha - we are born with this, and it doesn’t change.

  • Vikriti is the change in our constitution depending on imbalance, balance, time of year, time of life, etc. This changes due to circumstances.

  • Tips for food, routine and activities to help during the fall/winter time of year.

  • Everyone is individual and should pay attention to what works for them.

  • It is important to pay attention to what you eat, your routine and your activities.

  • Erin is awesome and has some really cool things going on over on her website, including ayurvedic counseling.

Free Detox Program:

Lose Excess in Body, Mind, and Heart - Free in 5 Days

What you must know about this program:


  • This is a free 5-day email course in which you will receive a meal guide, yoga practice and short meditation to help you clear out unnecessary weight in every part of you - every day. The first day will be an email to show you what you need to buy from the store, to have in your kitchen. It is a holistic detox.


  • Yes, this includes losing weight (you could lose up to three pounds), but this is more about dropping what weighs us down and holds us back not only in the body, but also in the mind and heart.


  • So those who are nursing, pregnant, trying to become pregnant, having any kind of serious health condition, or are underweight, should not take part.


  • This will not be a fast, though the first couple of days might feel like one. There will be plenty of protein, healthy fats and carbs. This is the healthiest way to detox, to improve the digestive system, and to lose weight. This is eating to lose weight.


  • I encourage you to take part in not only the meal guidance and diet part, but also the daily yoga practice and short meditation practice made available to you. Mind is connected to body is connected to spirit is connected to mind.


When you detox one part of you, you detox all parts of you. Lots of time and love was put into this free course because I am concerned that people are carrying too much excess weight in their bodies and baggage in their hearts and minds.


Nothing but love, and I hope it helps.
