Ep. 137 What Does It Mean to Live In Harmony With Your Body? Explaining Ayurveda ft. Dr. Avanti Kumar Singh
Dr. Avanti Kumar-Singh is a 20 + year physician who began her career as an ER doctor in Chicago. She quickly recognized the limitations of Western medicine and believed her patients deserved more. This realization took her from Brazil to study energy healing back to India to become a practitioner of its 5,000-year-old ancient healing tradition known as Ayurveda.
These various healing systems confirmed what Dr. Avanti had believed already - that each of us has the innate ability to attain and maintain our own optimal health, and that when done correctly, the practice of Ayurveda is as simple and as natural as being in tune with your body as it moves through the seasons of your life.
Combining the findings of modern science with the principles of traditional healing, Dr. Avanti is a thought leader in Ayurveda and an expert in integrative wellness. Her courses, writings, and lectures beautifully bridge the gap between the technological advances of Western medicine and the traditional, equally effective practices of Eastern medicine. She is a portal to demystifying and understanding the power and beauty of Ayurveda.
Dr. Kumar-Singh holds a BA in Art History from the University of Chicago and an MD from Rush University College of Medicine. She is also a certified plant-based professional and a certified yoga therapist. She hosts the Healing Catalyst Podcast and her first book, The Health Catalyst: How to Harness the Power of Ayurveda and Achieve Optimal Wellness, was published in 2020.
In addition, Dr. Avanti has been featured on goop, Google, mindbodygreen, Well + Good, Good Life Project, Thrive Global, The Huffington Post and dozens more. She also served as the co-lead facilitator of the Faculty Scholars Program in Integrative Healthcare at the OSHER Center for Integrative Medicine at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago.
