So, do you know what your body type (constitution) is? You may have heard about it from a friend who is a yoga instructor or from someone who studies Ayurveda.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the science of life. It is a lifestyle-based guide for creating and maintaining health in your body, mind and spirit. It was created nearly 5,000 years ago and is practiced all over the world. While I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I was able to learn from Dr. John Douillard about the Principles of Ayurveda. In fact, Ayurveda and Yoga go hand-in-hand, which you probably know.
In Ayurveda, you discover your constitution – which is a combination of vata, pitta, and kapha. Once you learn what your constitution or body type is, you can practice a lifestyle designed to balance those properties and bring harmony to your being.
Ayurveda is about creating health – prevention of disease rather than treating disease. It always looks at the body as a whole and at the connection between the mind and body when addressing health. To find out what your body’s constitution is, click the links below:
Ayurveda is a holistic and inspiring view of health care that teaches you to view your mind and body with respect. Learn more and make choices to bring about your best state of health!
In Health and Happiness,
Welcome to my blog!
My name is Shaline Miller. I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Institute for Integrative Nutrition graduate, author, Raw Food Educator, and Certified NLP Practitioner. I am a Santa Ana Digestive Health Examiner at http://www.examiner.com, and a featured health blogger for http://www.modernmom.com.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a major in Human Resources Management from California State University Long Beach. I worked in aerospace for seven years then become a stay-at-home mom for 15 years. I divorced after 16 years of marriage and re-entered the work force. I worked temporary jobs before landing a position as an Assistant Property Manager. I worked in commercial real estate/property management for three years before becoming one of the “unemployed” statistics. This led me to pursue my passion: nutrition and helping people get healthy as well as myself. It is my health issues with acid reflux that led me to study holistic nutrition and become a health lifestyle coach. I took several acid reflux medications but found that none of them alleviated my acid reflux. One day, I decided that I needed to stop taking the medication and make some changes. I naturally alleviated my acid reflux symptoms by changing my diet and making lifestyle changes.
I received my Professional Nutrition, Diet, and Health Certificate from Ashworth College and am a member of the International Honor Society Delta Epsilon Tau having graduated with honors.
Health Coaching is my passion and I hope my blog is a source of information and inspiration!
