What's My Body Type?
The foundation of Ayurvedic healing is diet and lifestyle. While it seems obvious that healthy foods are important for health, your lifestyle also has a powerful effect on your well-being. You are what you eat, and how you live. The health of one's lifestyle is often overlooked. You may eat the most organic, wholesome food but without the proper lifestyle - you can still get sick.

The classical texts of Ayurveda testify that a proper daily routine (dinacarya) ensures long term thriving and prevent disease. Just as diet is tailored to the uniqueness of each individual, so is lifestyle routine. Vata folks do better with more rest than Kapha folks. Pitta people need to be soothed more than any other dosha to balance their intensity. Kapha people need vigorous activity. Creating a healthy lifestyle is one of the safest, simplest and most affordable ways to impact your well being.

There are many things in life that you can't control. However, you can choose how you breathe through your day, your approach to emotionally demanding situations, and how you spend your leisure time. You can control your style of exercise, how your breath, and how you decorate your home. By harnessing the power of what you can control and adapting it to your specific body's needs, you set yourself up for success as well as optimal health.

His approach to Ayurveda is clinical, yet exudes an ease which many find enjoyable and insightful. John also directs Joyful Belly's School of Ayurveda, offering professional clinical training in Ayurveda for over 15 years.

John's interest in Ayurveda and specialization in digestive tract pathology was inspired by a complex digestive disorder acquired from years of international travel, as well as public service work in South Asia. John's commitment to the detailed study of digestive disorders reflects his zeal to get down to the roots of the problem. His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion. John's creativity in the kitchen and delight in cooking for others comes from his family oriented upbringing. In addition to his certification in Ayurveda, John holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Harvard University.

John enjoys sharing Ayurveda within the context of his Catholic roots, and finds Ayurveda gives him an opportunity to participate in the healing mission of the Church. Jesus expressed God's love by feeding and healing the sick. That kindness is the fundamental ministry of Ayurveda as well. Outside of work, John enjoys spending time with his wife and 7 kids, and pursuing his love of theology, philosophy, and language.
