Ep. 25 Women and Ayurvedic Medicine: The Lap that Cradles Civilization – From Skirts To Scrubs
Would you consider yourself a fiery person? Grounded? Dynamic? Maybe a combination of the three? If you looked at your health from the perspective of Ayurvedic medicine, it would probably be some combination of the three with one aspect being dominant. And this combination would be unique to you! But it would also have an impact on the way you receive medical care. Join us this week as we discuss the practice of Ayurveda, a form of medicine that originates in the Indian subcontinent and is still practiced today. Learn about its history, principles and of course, the way it impacts women. It’ll be a journey you won’t want to miss! Check out our Feminist Corner discussion questions after listening and send us your thoughts! Which dosha do you think you would be dominant in?How does ayurveda differ from other homeopathic practices and how is it similar? How does ayurvedic medicine and the ways it was used to understand women differ from how maybe American or Western medicine understands the biologically female body?
