The Ultimate Ayurveda Detox: Panchakarma in Bali
Under Ayurveda - a 5,000+ year old healing practice from India which the World Health Organization (WHO) considers to be the oldest comprehensive health care system in the world - optimal health is about much more than just looking good or being fit. To be truly healthy, we have to be balanced in body, mind and spirit. This can be challenging in our toxic, high-tech modern world, which is why Ayurvedic doctors recommend regular Panchakarma detoxes, the most effective healing modality in the science of Ayurveda. As the name suggests, Panchakarmas entail a series of five holistic "karma" cleanses designed to eliminate deep-seated toxins and restore balance in body, mind and soul. To learn more, watch this episode, where we visit the eco-luxurious One World Ayurveda, an authentic Ayurveda retreat offering guests so much more than just a spa wellness vacation. There, we experienced a life-changing 10-day Panchakarma retreat amidst the beautiful rice fields of mystical Bali, Indonesia, just outside of Ubud. Between daily massages, yoga, meditation, herbal dococtions, delicious vegetarian meals tailored to our "dosha" and deep detoxification techniques, watch this episode to experience a one-of-a-kind healing journey that confirms the adage "health is the new wealth".

Nutrition 101:  Get Schooled at T  Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies
With so many fad diets out there – from Atkins and South Beach to Paleo and Caveman, it can be hard to tell the difference between proper nutrition and plain old marketing hype. So where do we turn for reliable information? Unfortunately, most medical doctors get less than five hours of nutrition education over the course of their careers, and the FDA’s recommendations for nutrition have kept the U.S. ranked #1 in health care costs but a sad #38 in health outcomes worldwide.To separate fact from fiction, we met with Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of nutrition at Cornell, and his Center for Nutrition Studies in Ithaca, New York. Arguably the top expert in the world on nutrition, Dr. Campbell has spent over 50 years researching the impact of diet and on health and chronic disease and has authored New York Times’ bestsellers like The China Study and Whole. Through his 6-week intensive certification course on plant-based nutrition, he has helped thousands debunk the top nutrition myths and gain a better understanding of how adopting a whole food, plant-based diet can ensure the sustainability of both people and the planet.
