Dr. Dugliss's Point of View
How were you introduced to Ayurveda?
From a very wonderful enlightened soul and long-term meditator who knew I was studying Traditional Chinese Medicine. He said if you like Chinese Medicine, you will love Ayurveda. He was right.
When are you most likely to go out of balance and how do you bring yourself back in balance using Ayurveda?
Traveling always throws me for a loop. I try to bring massage oil with me and do abhyanga as soon as I can when I get to my destination. I also meditate frequently on the plane.
What does the future of Ayurveda look like to you?
I see Ayurveda become the primary complementary medicine in the US.
What's one Ayurvedic practice anyone can implement to spur change in their life, right here, right now?
