Ayurveda is a system of holistic medicine designed to empower healthy living. From this well respected system, John Douillard teaches us how to deal with stress. In our culture, we are impacted by huge amounts of stress, from an overload of activities to excessive amounts of sensory input. Such overwhelm stimulates our nervous system which depletes and exhausts us, making us vulnerable to stress conditions such as depression, anxiety, or insomnia. Ayurveda outlines nature's preventative foods and antidotes to what stresses the body, and includes activities that enliven and balance our well-being.
