Cooking and baking, entrepreneurship, and wellness are all in my DNA. My Russian great-grandparents came to the U.S. in the early part of the 20th Century, bringing with them homemade, proven sick cures like cupping and delicious recipes for Jewish classics such as kreplach and matzoh ball soup that remain family favorites to this day!
Unfortunately, my DNA is also responsible for a host of health issues. While enjoying a weekend yoga retreat, I was introduced to Ayurveda, which literally means “life science.”
It became clear to me that my genes and my passions were aligning to put me on a career path as a certified Ayurveda Wellness Counselor. It made so much sense since I already had so many friends relying on me for both wellness tips and a great dinner!
Ayurveda is not a one-size-fits-all approach. It’s a customized plan that addresses what makes you who you are, including diet, stress level, lifestyle, and medical and family history.
An Ayurvedic lifestyle can aid in the reduction of stress, correct digestive imbalances, help you to maintain a healthy weight, improve your sleep, reduce inflammation, and strengthen your respiratory and immune systems.
Working one-on-one with you, I create holistic health plans tailored specifically to your needs, detailing the correct foods and food combinations, daily routines including meditation, breathing techniques, yoga, and proper usage of medicinal herbs to restore and support balance in the body-mind so you can enjoy optimal health and a state of joy.
In Ayurveda, your mind-body type is called a Dosha, the unique blend of physical, emotional, and mental characteristics that define You!
