Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik lecturing in Cross River, NY
Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik will give a free lecture, Ayurveda and the Winter Season: Preparing for and Thriving in the Dark and Cold, from 3 to 5 p.m., December 10, 2016 at his Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic at Yellow Monkey Village in Cross River, NY. The lecture is part of a monthly series offered every second Saturday at the clinic. Light refreshments will be served.
“Ayurveda defines health as a balance of body, mind and spirit,” Kaushik says. “But it can be hard to stay in balance during the winter months, when all you want to do is hibernate.” Ayurveda has some specific methods for getting through the cold and flu season without getting sick, and for avoiding or mitigating Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), he says.
Among the subjects he will cover are why we tend to feel mentally, emotionally and physically tired as temperatures drop, and what to do about it; the connection between fatigue and the adrenal glands; why thyroid health plays an important role during winter; foods that support and enhance adrenal and thyroid function; and foods to stay away from during winter months.
Kaushik has more than 30 years’ experience as an Ayurvedic physician and has a background in public health and health education. He lectures on Ayurvedic Medicine at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon, as well as at various national and international symposiums and events. His clinic is located at 792 Route 35, Cross River, NY.
