It was just about a year ago when I decided that I wanted to learn more about Ayurveda and commit myself to live an Ayurvedic lifestyle. I had been practicing yoga for 14 years and Christina was one of my teachers at the Bikram Yoga Studio in Elk Grove.
I clearly remember having a casual conversation with Christina about my health and how fed up I had become with so many aspects of the western approach to medicine. I told Christina that I wanted to be healthy, to live a more balanced life, to lose weight, and eventually become pregnant and have a happy, healthy baby and that I wanted her help.
Christina agreed to teach me the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda and about six months ago our consultations began. I met with Christina every week to discuss the who, what, when, where, why, and how of my eating habits and gradually learned to implement the guidelines for healthy eating.
As a school teacher, I am constantly under a lot of stress and, prior to practicing Ayurveda, I was sick all of the time, each month with something new. The past six months of my life have been very stressful and full of changes, but I have not felt this well since I started teaching seven years ago. I normally experience severe allergies and get every little bug that travels through the bodies of my first-grade classroom, but this year…nothing. I even lost 15 pounds!
Just before I started to see Christina I had been told by a doctor that I needed to go back on birth control pills to treat my Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome and that I would need to go to an infertility clinic if I ever wanted to become pregnant. That doctor couldn’t have been more wrong! With the help of Ayurvedic practices and herbs, my cycle became regular and now I’m expecting my own little bundle of joy in the winter!
Christina has been able to help me channel the power I have within my self to take control of my life, connect with the divinity that surrounds me, and be truly at peace with where I am, right here, right now.
I am so grateful to have had Christina’s help and support on this journey into divine health through Ayurveda. I couldn’t have done it without her! If you are committed to yourself and creating health and healing that is physical, mental, and spiritual, I wholeheartedly recommend learning more about Ayurveda with Christina!
