In his latest book "Healing your Life" You speak of how the misuse of the senses is one of the causes of the disease. How can we start using our senses more appropriately?
Each person needs guidance and support to make changes to the way we live our lives. That is the role of the Ayurvedic Health Professional and Specialist. The process begins by understanding who you are as an individual and how to use your senses properly. Nothing is right for everyone. However, what is right for one person is not necessarily so for another one. A practitioner of Ayurveda will help you learn what is right for you and then give support to live accordingly. Real change is a slow process of learning and practice. Your health is there to be your coach and yourself are your own master.
