So you may recognize the brave bear we’re featuring in today’s episode. Shivani Gupta, my friend and teacher for all things green living and Ayurveda, chats with me about how we healers and intuitives can make conscious choices to help us honor our bodies with self care, healthy lifestyle choices, and ancient rituals to support optimum health.
We talk briefly about The Conscious Pregnancy–the book we worked on together–and how I was able to reduce the toxic burden in my home and in my body as a result of applying Shivani’s guidelines as I was editing the manuscript. Shivani also provides a few pointers on how to get ready for possible stress-inducing events, which I took with me on my most recent trip to give a keynote speech in Ontario, Canada. And, to no surprise, it worked!
If you’re a creative professional, an entrepreneur, a mom, a newbie to green living, an elite athlete, or you’re interested in Ayurveda, there are lots of gems in this episode!
Note: It’s actually quite funny because Shivani’s green smoothie went down the wrong tube while she was responding to a question. So you’ll notice about half way through the episode, there will be a brief intermission where I had to edit that part of the audio.

“I don’t like to teach people 500 things that they can’t do. I’ll tell them this is what I do, this is what I’ve incorporated, and these are the additional things you can do if you’re a rockstar.”– Shivani Gupta
“If you could build a couple of healthy habits into your day and really reverse aging or prevent chronic disease, why wouldn’t you do that.” – Shivani Gupta
