Holistic Moms Network Hosts Ayurveda Expert
February 22, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Dr. Somesh Kaushik
The Holistic Moms Network will host Ayurvedic and naturopathic physician Dr. Somesh Kaushik at its next meeting, scheduled for February 22, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Rye Free Reading Room, located at 1061 Boston Post Road. Kaushik will give a presentation on Ayurvedic medicine and explain how it compares with Western (allopathic) medicine.
Kaushik is the owner and chief medical practitioner of Dr. Kaushik’s Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic in Cross River. He has more than 30 years’ experience as an Ayurvedic physician and has received the Dhanwantri Award, his profession’s highest honor. He also has experience in public health and health education.
“Ayurveda is thought to be the world’s oldest healing system and is referred to as ‘the mother of all sciences,’” he says. “It encompasses life in its totality and epitomizes a true body-mind approach to health and wellness. Ayurveda defines health as a balance of body, mind and spirit; imbalance results in disharmony, and illness can result.
In his presentation, Kaushik will explain how Ayurveda can work with allopathic medicine to achieve balance and harmony; the science behind naturopathy (natural therapy) and how it integrates with Ayurveda; how to determine if you are out of balance; and simple ways to achieve balance and harmony in your life.
