Discover the Benefits of Ayurveda: 5 Reasons to Incorporate it into Your Life Today

Ayurveda is the only whole-person healing system customized to the individual. As opposed to treating issues at the surface, Ayurveda works to restore health and wellbeing by identifying and addressing the root causes of imbalance.

Ayurveda is for everyone. In this article, we will explore 5 reasons to follow Ayurveda.

Ready to get started? Drumroll, please…

Reason #1: Maybe you'll reduce high co-pays

The average cost of healthcare per person in the United States is $11,582. This cost includes insurance premiums, co-pays (which range from $15 to $150+ per visit), and emergency care.

Because the US doesn’t have a single nationwide system of health insurance, the cost of care is often unregulated and set up as a for-profit venture. As a result, there is no incentive to keep people healthy — instead, the system is set up to keep people dependent on pharmaceutical drugs.

Unlike Western medicine, Ayurveda treats the whole person — not just the symptom(s). Through food as medicine, herbal treatments, and lifestyle changes, Ayurveda rebalances the body and mind so optimal health and well-being can be established and maintained.


As a physician, I have always believed ‘Prevention is better than cure.’ In an era of spiraling health care costs, Ayurveda is the logical and natural solution.

I started working with Veena at a time when I was at the end of my tether, juggling my professional and personal aspirations. She responded to my desperate call and went out of her way to find ways to work things into my busy schedule.

I was encouraged to pursue a steady approach to create lasting changes. Now when I see my patients, I see so many sufferings from similar symptoms related to diet and stress. I have routed several of my patients to Saumya Ayurveda. Veena is a blessing to have such a rich resource.

I am eternally grateful to Veena for anchoring me to my present state of health and peacefulness and for helping me to embark on a path towards the balance we all are striving for. Thank you so much.” --Dr. Gauri Nagargoje, M.D.

Reason #2: You'll feel more energized

Ah, energy! It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it? When we feel energized, it’s like we can conquer the world (or at least our to-do list and personal goals!).

Unfortunately, a recent survey found U.S. adults feel lethargic at least three times a week. This means for almost half (or more) of the week, Americans aren’t as productive, happy, focused, or mentally sound as they could be.

So, what gives? Well, in addition to being sleep-deprived, 46% of the US population is nutrient deficient. Without proper nutrition, the brain and other organs can’t function at optimal levels. Over time, this leads to various conditions including anxiety, depression, illness, and disease.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way — Ayurveda can help. Through Ayurveda nutrition programs created for YOU and not the masses, you can boost your energy levels and say goodbye to lethargy!


"Veena has helped me so much! I had been struggling with fatigue for many years. I tried many things, read lots of books, advice, etc. Nothing worked, or very slight positive change over the years, but I was still struggling with the everyday.

Then a couple months with Veena, I was stunned at how ayurveda and her customized approach worked! Not only did the fatigue go away, but I actually have renewed energy and feel so physically and mentally energetic! I am so grateful. I feel like I got living my life back." -Michelle Cheuk, St. Paul, Minnesota

Reason #3: You're skin, nails, digestion and more may improve

Have you ever heard the phrase, “The outside matches the inside?

According to Ayurveda, this means your outer appearance is a reflection of your internal state of health. Imbalances in the doshas on the outside and inside are equally imporant in Ayuveda. When you have dry, thining hair, dry or irritated skin, nails, or other external tissue issues it’s often because something is imbalanced within.

Survey your own nails, skin, and digestive system right now. Are they dry? Dull? Brittle? Constipated? Bloated? If they are, this means your insides are also dry at a cellular level.

Ayurveda can help nourish your insides so the outside looks vibrant and healthy. From cleansing teas to herbal treatments, stress-reducing techniques, and food as medicine, Ayurveda restores internal and external balance in your body and mind.

Reason #4: You're ready to reduce your stress

From time to time we all experience stress in our lives. Whether due to a job, relationship, family concern, trauma, or something else, when we feel stressed, life can seem overwhelming.

And if you’re feeling stressed right now, you aren’t alone. Seventy percent of Americans report feeling stressed seven days a week — 70%!

While stress is okay and natural on occasion, long-term stress puts you at increased risk of health issues including heart disease, heart attack, weight gain, digestive problems, depression, memory and concentration impairment, and more.

Through meditation, yoga, breathwork, nasya, and Ayurveda morning and evening routines (dinacharya), Ayurveda helps people reduce stress and regain personal balance.

Saumya Ayurveda's 3 steps for transforming your daily life with image of a woman meditating by a lake

There is a saying, "The mind is more in the body, than the body is in the mind." The Saumya 3 step meditation process shifts us from fight-flight-freeze mode, to rest-restore-relax mode. Give it a try for forty days and observe the changes. The more grounded and relaxed we are, the smoother life flows.

"The breath is the connection between the mind and body, so by training the breath, we become calm, focused, and grounded, we slow down the aging process by decreasing stress. These practices are so simple and easy to have as part of our daily life. We actually feel and look younger."

- Veena, Saumya Ayurveda

1. Learn Diaphragmatic Breathing and Change Your Life. When we re-learn to breath diaphragmatically, we move from the flight-fight-freeze mode, to rest, restore, relaxation mode from where we want and need to live.

2. Daily Guided Practices: 11 minutes in the morning and in the evening, as anchors of your daily Ayurveda routine.

"Choose a couple of practices from the routines that provide you with the greatest support. Perform them while applying our two minute meditation technique and your mundane tasks, just transformed into a mellifluous meditation. This is meditation applied to daily life." - Veena, Saumya Ayurveda

"Veena was able to help me regain my energy in just a few months and I’m feeling like my “young” self again! I love the food plan she designed for me, and all the supporting practices (am/pm routines, breathing techniques, herbs, and spice mixes) are so enjoyable to incorporate into my day. I highly recommend Saumya Ayurveda if you want to feel better and have more vitality.”

-Molly Rossini, Minnesota

Reason #5: You don't want toxins in your body

On average, women consume 158 chemicals a day and men consume 85. These toxins are absorbed via food consumption, the air, and personal products used on the skin (like lotion, deodorant, perfume, etc.).

The body is a smart, self-cleaning machine — but it has limits. When your body isn’t fed properly your organs such as your kidneys and colon can’t function properly. As a result, toxins build up in your system are a leading cause of poor immunity and diseases.

As opposed to pesticide-rich foods that contain chemicals and other additives, Ayurveda encourages natural, whole foods that promote health and well-being. As a result, your body can naturally rid itself of toxins that are unavoidable (like polluted air).


"Skin is our largest organ of digestion. Take a look at the labels on your skin products. If you are not willing to eat your skin care products, please don't use them on your skin." -Veena, Saumya Ayurveda

Veena has literally changed my life. I was struggling with mental and physical symptoms that my doctor had no answer for. I thought I was going crazy and just making symptoms up.

With Veena’s guidance, with herbs and diet changes, I soon realized that my symptoms were very real. After making the changes, I made small victories along the way, and became better with each appointment with her.

Now almost 6 months later, I am a completely different person. I still have some things to work on, but with Veena’s help, I know I will be able to take control of my health and not leave it to Western medicine that was giving me little to no help and covering up my symptoms with another medication.

I highly encourage getting the “plus” package, especially if you are working with challenges with your monthly cycle. Working with Veen has been the best decision I have made for my health. You won’t be disappointed!” -- Maria Fumagalli, San Diego, California


“Veena is amazing. She is thoughtful, kind, and supportive. I love working with Veena. – Kurt Lucero, The Cleanery, Albuquerque, New Mexico


I had a wonderful consultation with Veena. She was thoughtful, supportive, knowledgeable and it was really easy to talk to her about everything.

She has a wealth of knowledge for many different aspects of Ayurveda which helped me expand my own experience with the practice.

The treatment plans she devised, based on some of my biggest challenges or symptoms, were very insightful and specifically designed and purposed for me and my situation--which I loved.

Many of the practices suggested were new to me, but Veena has a way of encouraging people so that it doesn't feel overwhelming or impossible. I highly recommend her services for anyone looking to address any imbalance in their life, big or little.”

--Elise vanWeisternen, Seattle, Washington
