About this Episode:

This episode is a deep dive into the importance of personalized medicine and how to begin the journey to take a whole mind, body, spirit approach to healing.

Dr. Atousa goes deep into the philosophy of yoga and Ayurvedic/Functional Medicine and the importance of diet and lifestyle to promote healing, health and wellness. She enlightens the audience on the power of the breath and how the breath is the bridge from the unconscious to the conscious.

At the end she gives the listeners a couple tips and practices that we can begin to do today to initiate the process of healing.

This episode is one of my favorites to date and suggest it to anyone who is looking to physically heal from illness or who wants to simple learn to calm their mind.

Key Points:
