Wellbeing in India.

India is the birthplace of Ayurveda and yoga. Treatments and practices which look at the causes rather than the symptoms. Practises which focus on wellbeing in the present, ongoing, health for life rather than retrospectively dealing with ill health.

My first foray into Ayurveda came in 1999 when I decided to check out a series of places in Kerala and then worked with Sophie Roberts to have a feature in Conde Nast. Then a trend started, CGH opened Kalari Kovilakom and I was invited along as guinea pig, then Swa Swara, and Prakriti Shakti for naturopathy. Each time it had to be a full course, they wanted this wine swilling, bag of restless energy to truly feel the benefit. I’m always up for anything, even if just to disprove and so I’ve thrown myself into it wholeheartedly.

The result, I’m a firm believer in the preventative thought process, living with health and wellbeing.

The result of trying out these places is that now, every couple of years or so, I take myself off for a detox.  Think about it, we put our cars in for a service every year to make sure they are running properly, so why not ourselves?

Most recently I’ve done a course in nutrition for mental health having become fascinated by why this is now a global problem and how diet plays a part.

It stands to reason therefore that when planning a new website, wellness had to play a part and I’ve included all those who have helped me along the way.
