Ayurveda/Natural Life Medicine

Background: What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda, the science and medicine of life, is thought to be the oldest form of medicine in the world. Originating from India, it is the Mother of yoga (our lives), and a constant facilitator and reminder of the nourishment and harmony in everything that we do and experience. Called “Ojas,” Ayurveda brings out the maximum life force that we contain within us as protection of our immune system so that we can access spirit.

About Kadie

“Do I trust this awakening? Do I trust my true, divine nature?” I ask myself these questions every day. Sometimes the answer is a definite “YES!” Sometimes it is more of a “maybe?” However, the real blessing is that I consider this potential for awakening to be the ultimate truth, one that I know in my heart we are all capable of realizing.

Less than three years ago, I was nowhere near true connectedness, much less considering myself a part of the Divine. I was struggling with panic attacks, issues of self-worth (a lifelong process), and addiction (that 3rd chakra imbalance is SO real)! I had a moment of clarity and thought that there may be a different way to live and I took action. This was the ultimate act of self-love: to have the courage to try something new despite all of my fears and uncertainty. It was the greatest decision of my life.

At the start of this new path, I attended my very first weekend retreat at Swan River where I leaned about the power of Reiki and techniques for cleansing and balancing the subtle body. Everything shifted and I felt more alive than ever before. I had hope that things were going to be okay, and that I was going to be okay. In that moment, I knew deep down that these practices were a part of my path – something that I was meant to explore and share with others.

The trainings, workshops, and holistic health practices have been a constant in my life since that day. I find great peace in the sacred teachings of Ayurveda, yoga, mantra, essential oils meditation, and energy clearing practices– they have truly transformed my life. I am beyond grateful to Swan Michelle and Meghan Hays for their dedication and truly showing up to serve in ways that have inspired and saved me.

What you share truly grows stronger, and I am so honored to offer consultations to the Swan River community as an Ayurveda Yoga Therapist and Reiki Master. My greatest intention is to help others create balance and harmony in all aspects of their lives and to reconnect to their truth. I believe that we are all here to help each other wake up and to experience the freedom and love that is our true home. May we all be free. Namaste.

Ayurveda is a science that we have very practical, palpable access to, so that we can heal at any moment. It reminds us to be mindful of every action, from physical maintenance, life duties, work, recreation, and exercise to our spiritual practice, as THE medicinal remedies. Ayurveda examines our lifestyle habits and routines to bring us back into harmony with our original state. It utilizes all of the elements that reside within nature and our own bodies by examining our strongest imprints and tendencies that have imposed as a part of our nature.

The alchemy of natural medicine can be found within us and in our daily lives. Lifestyle practices and daily routines as an antidote can bring our well-being back into balance emotionally, mentally and physically instead of throwing us off with further imbalance and into disconnect or even disease. This naturally brings us back to the original joyful spirit that we are and into a state of homeostasis that resides within us all.
It is empowering to embody every aspect of our lives as means of joy and upliftment instead of further draining our life force and creating more stress and blockages. Ayurveda is a recalling back of our life and health.

Applying Ayurveda:
After learning and applying the Ayurvedic principles, we can sense and move energy to its optimal capacity, remove blockages that separates us from our natural state, holding, like a container, greater health, clarity, increased capacity, nourishment, adaptability, creativity, intelligence and enthusiasm. With this life medicine, we reawaken our fortitude and awareness to heal our life within everything that we do, be it work, family, traveling, eating, sleeping, changing, exercising, loving, interacting, taking care of business, or of course, even our yoga asana practices.

From the moment we wake up, we can use Ayurveda to address what habits are best suited for us within all of our five senses: taste (specific diet, the means of digestion and tongue reading); touch (specified yogic practices, marma and ayurvedic massage, Thai massage, the quality of the skin); smell (aromatherapy, oil therapy, cleansing the energy currents); sight (eye health, color therapy, meditation, visualization & beauty hygiene); and sound (ear health, music therapy, speech quality, listening and silence).
Other habits include the pace and clarity of our mind and physical body, the time of day we operate best at, the way we sleep, our relationships, our daily environments and the reason why we do everything that we do. It also helps us to understand the things that will throw us more easily off balance, which is personal to each individual.

Detoxify Extreme Imbalance:
Ayurveda addresses very specific and extreme imbalances or changes in our lives, such as aging, toxicity from food or the environment, stress, digestive issues, menstrual imbalance, sexual incontinence, infertility, trauma, accident recovery, insomnia, weight gain or loss, disease recovery and dying. Also extreme emotions, including grief, loss, lack of self-acceptance, depression, anger, impatience, jealousy, fear, anxiety, worry, lack of focus or lacking in feeling or motivation. Most importantly, proper expression and embodiment of Ayurveda assists in releasing “Ama,” which are toxins, or the inability to digest things, release attachments that block the life force, access inner motion, inflammation or stagnation. All of these are addressed for means of purification.
