The Impact of Sensory Perceptions on our Mind, Emotions and Health with Vaidya Jayarajan

Jun 02, 2022

Episode 238

Vaidya Jayarajan Kodikannath is a classically trained Ayurveda doctor and an accomplished teacher representing a lineage of Ayurveda Practitioners from Kerala, India. Dr. J is CEO of Kerala Ayurveda (USA) and is President of NAMA the National Ayurveda Medical Association in the US. 

"Ayurveda is not a disease management system, it's the management of the individual with the disease". - Dr. J

I heard Dr. J say this quote recently and I asked him to discuss in detail for this episode and in particular we wanted to talk about managing the senses as there is often lots of focus on the diet and lifestyle. We discuss the following:

  • What is disease.
  • The establishment of disease in the body.
  • How Ayurveda addresses disease.
  • How our sensory inputs impact our health and wellbeing.
  • What happens in the body when our body perceives stress.
  • How to manage our sensory inputs, our mental health and our emotional health.
