ENTREVISTA DANIELA ESCOBAR

Daniela Escobar

Ayurvedic health practitioner, herbalist and Australian bush flower essence practitioner

Dani specializes in Streeroga and Prasooti Tantra (Women's Health) and herbalism. She works with women from preconception to postpartum care. She is also co-founder of Autism Naturally (www.autismnaturally.com.au) with Dr Rama Prasad and founder of Soma-Shakti, a women's clinic (www.soma-shakti.com.au)

She practices with loving devotion and believes that her purpose in this life is to serve through the healing qualities that Nature abundantly offers us.

With deep humility, she offers all her services to her teachers who have guided her on the path of service.

NR: WHAT IS AYURVEDA?

DAN: Ayurveda is the ancient wisdom of life with its roots in the area of ​​India. Ayurveda teaches us how to live in harmony with nature and offers us the opportunity for a long, healthy and balanced life. The term Ayurveda is taken from the Sanskrit word ayuh = life and veda = knowledge, truth, wisdom.

The practice of this beautiful art and science prevents and treats imbalances in the body and mind that could lead to disease.

It does this by creating and maintaining balance in the body and mind through diet, lifestyle, herbal protocols, yoga, meditation, body treatments and advanced detox programs.

NR: WHEN AND HOW IS THE BEST WAY TO START?

DAN: I think the best way to start is by creating a deeper relationship with the foods we eat and our digestive fire.

Bring more awareness to yourself, what we eat and ask ourselves these questions.

How does my digestion feel today? How do I feel after eating? Do I have bloating, gas or heartburn? What are my energy levels like? And how is my mind affected after eating certain foods?

These practices are intended to raise more awareness, and it's a great way to get started! I also suggest finding an Ayurvedic practitioner who can offer guidance and support which is also important during this process.

NR: WHAT IS DOSHA?

DAN: Doshas are a way of categorizing the pancha mahabhutas (the five elements).

In Ayurveda it is explained that everything in the Universe, organic and inorganic, is made up of the five elements.

These elements are Ether (space), air, fire, water and earth. The Doshas create three categories that combine these elements in certain missions or purposes in the body and mind.

Vata: Ether + Air (The principle of movement and vibration)

Pitta: Fire + Water (The principle of transformation, digestion, absorption and assimilation)

Kapha: Water + Earth (The principle of stability and cohesion)

NR: WHAT THINGS DO YOU DO TO FEEL GOOD THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?

DAN: Some things I do to feel nourished and centered throughout the year are:

  • Abhyanga: self-oil massage (nourish the body with love)
  • gentle yoga
  • Meditation
  • Pranayama (breathing exercises)
  • Eat two meals a day and a light soup for dinner.

NR: WHAT ARE SOME PRACTICES THAT WE CAN APPLY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?

DAN: There are so many practices that we can begin to apply in our daily lives. But they depend on each individual. The one I would suggest for everyone is the daily practice of meditation.

Dedicate 10 to 20 minutes daily to sit and connect with your heart.

Another beautiful practice is to create more awareness about our digestion and what we eat. In Ayurveda, we generally do not recommend snacks. So, this could be a good practice to start applying in our lives.

If we feel the need to eat something, we must honestly ask ourselves if it comes from hunger or if it is emotional eating? Allow some time to breathe and connect with the body.

NR: HOW DO SPICES WORK IN AN AYURVEDIC WAY OF EATING?

DAN: Spices are wonderful and have so many magical benefits! In Ayurveda, we use them in cooking as a way to ignite the digestive fire, to digest toxins or undigested foods and we can also use them as medicine.

I invite you to connect with different spices and start adding them to your meals. Notice the difference in your digestion. Let your creativity flow in the kitchen.

My favorites are fenugreek, cardamom, ginger, turmeric and black pepper. 🙂

Fenugreek: Lights the digestive fire, balances cholesterol, improves milk flow in nursing mothers.

Cardamom: helps dissolve phlegm or mucus, helps respiratory health, helps digestion.

Ginger: anti-inflammatory, lights the digestive fire, relieves stomach cramps or spasms.

Turmeric: anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant and promotes healthy digestion.

Black pepper: cleansing and antioxidant properties, healthy respiratory system, improves digestion and circulation.

"These practices are intended to raise more awareness, and it is a great way to start"
