The Mind of our Body

Most of us today have either fallen in love with yoga, practice some form of yoga or definitely know what is yoga. We know that Yoga means Mind Body Union.

Many decades ago, or many generations ago, life was a wonderful union between people, practices, work and food. We ate what we grew, perhaps in our backyards, we cooked fresh since there was no way to preserve, and we worked enough to sustain ourselves. Everyone helped everyone. Nature was always enough and provided us what we needed to stay healthy and happy. When our body was upset, we either starved or we mixed simple potions which relived us in our own kitchens.

Moving way forward in time to the present, we buy food which is sometimes processed, which might have been grown anywhere in the world, we preserve and reheat food since we have refrigerators, we work so much that we stress ourselves out, we try to relax, struggle to sleep at times, upset our immune system and digestion, and then the food we eat doesn’t work for us. It upsets our system, it doesn’t get transformed to energy, we struggle with deficiencies, the weakest part of us feels the impact, we gain or lose weight and get further stressed.

Our body has a powerful mind. It has a deep psychology. We know that mind affects the body, for when we stress, we feel it. But, the interconnections within this sacred space of our body is manifold and potent.

Exploring the psychology of our physiology

Through this series, we will be exploring this in great depth. From understanding how the synergy between the food we eat and our unique digestion takes place to the synergy to how the state of our physiology affects our psyche.

We will start to break down the gaps between our different systems and how to build more synergy between our different

body systems. We will learn to make better sense of the connection between some medication we take and how it impacts our body. We will also look at how our mind is impacted by both the food we eat and by how we eat our food.

Functional Nutrition looks at the powerful intersection between food, physiology and psychology. It is truly mind body nutrition

One of the deepest and most profound principles of Functional Medicine and Functional Nutrition is how powerful a role the state of our gut plays in everything from the functioning of all our systems to the health of our mind. This series will explore the science behind this, and what harms and helps. Understanding the reason why, is always necessary in making changes to our food.

Mediators are those that harm us or help us. Knowing our unique mediators takes time and patience. Accepting the mediators that harm us takes patience in ourselves. Together we can make this change, by empowering ourselves with knowledge and accepting ourselves without judgement.

Book Acquisition by HarperCollins India

Here’s that exciting news I spoke about to coincide with the one year anniversary of The Sleep Whisperer Podcast! Writing a book and becoming part of that magical group of authors is a dream!

Three years ago I wrote a book which I titled Sleep Whisperer, looking at sleep from a very in depth perspective, and tying together the cutting-edge science of functional medicine and eastern ancient wisdom. The story of how I wrote that book is indeed magical and a mixture of spiritual guidance and astrology(by my spiritual guide and mentor Shyam @himalayan.yogi ). It’s also been a lot of sacrifice and hard work during times that were stressful, challenging and testing in all ways.

The journey of the book from concept to acquisition is also a magical path which I will share much later. For now, I’m just humbled, grateful and quite simply excited to announce that the book has been acquired by Sonal Nerurkar @sonal_nerurkar of @harpercollinsin HarperCollins India! Sonal’s faith in the book has been unwavering and I’ll forever be grateful for it. I can’t wait for the final book release next year!

None of this would be possible without the trust, hard work, dedication and patience of my most beautifully warm literary agent Jayapriya Vasudevan @jayapriyavasudevan of Jacaranda Literary Agency. I cannot put into words what her belief in the book and being my warrior for it means to me.

I’m also deeply grateful for the dear colleagues and mentors who have made contributions to the book. That is a surprise for later! You can follow everything about the sleep podcast and book at @mysleepwhisperer
