Notable Quotes

“[Ayurveda] is something that we can all live by every single day. And I truly believe that this preventive lifestyle can help us prevent needing so many interventions that have side effects and detrimental effects on the body.”
Dr. Shivani Gupta

“I always wondered, which one’s right? Which one’s better? And over the decades, what I’ve learned is there’s no ‘right.’ There’s just what is best for you and your body, and how can you prevent, needing all those interventions.”
Dr. Shivani Gupta


Episode Summary

Ayurvedic medicine has been around for millennia and is heavily focused on balancing the mind, body, and spirit through naturopathic remedies including proper diet, herbal medicines, exercise, meditation, and yoga. The practice has been steadily trickling into the Western medicine front, where many of the spices used in Ayurvedic medicine have been thoroughly studied for their positive effects on health.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to Ayurveda, inflammation, and immune expert and CEO of Fusionary Formulas, Dr. Shivani Gupta, to walk us through what Ayurvedic medicine is and how we can incorporate its teachings to help us achieve optimal health.
