The 5,000-year-old practice of Ayurveda is all about achieving balance in your life by optimizing your daily routine, including the foods you eat and exercises you do. Ayurveda and digestive health expert Nadya Andreeva joined HuffPost Live to discuss how people today can adopt the ancient Indian tradition into their own lives.
"Since we live in a western society and we have different habits and a different lifestyle, we can take some components of Ayurveda and use it to help us stay balanced without necessarily copying what worked 5,000 years ago," she said.
There are no general guidelines to Ayurveda. Instead, each person is seen as a "unique microcosm," and the focus is on what one specific body needs to achieve balance, Andreeva said.
Find out how to adopt Ayurveda into your own life in the full conversation from HuffPost Live below.
