How Ayurvedic Principles Can Teach You About fulfillment and RESILIENCY

Ayurveda is not turmeric “milk” or botanicals contaminated with mercury. Burnout is not a deficit of mindfulness. And the two are related how?

Understanding Burnout

The Maslach Burnout Inventory defines burnout as a syndrome of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment in one’s work. Are you noticing burnout?

What is Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient whole person healing system. From Sanskrit: आयुर्वेद, Āyurveda, means the knowledge of life and longevity or the science of life. Ayurveda was born out of the need for healing in ancient India and is based on observation of the human mind, body, and spirit over thousands of years. It examines intangible things like hope, contentment, existential pain, and movement within us of the cosmos.

There is a vast compendium of knowledge that even includes surgical techniques that the west has never acknowledged. It is also a science of “common sense,” which seems to have left us. In this time, our essential nature feels so far from us. So many clinicians are posting about burnout… overwhelm…. about the desperate situations in hospitals.

Joy, relaxation, or innovation feels far away right now. When I left my clinical role in 2018, I had tried for 20 years to create change within a system focused on catching up to disease once it had started instead of investing in prevention. I was exhausted trying to speak reason into this machine. And for clarity. Nothing about my framework is anti-science or anti-vaccine. I AM probably one of the most curious scientists I know but that’s a story for another day.

How Can Ayurveda Help?

Ayurvedic knowledge includes techniques for restorative sleep, circadian rhythms, stress reduction, movement, rejuvenation, digestive health, disease management, and so much more. Our epigenetic patterns change with burnout. And I saw this first hand.

Listen to the Wisdom of the Body podcast where I share how profoundly burnout impacted me physiologically. I learned that healing is a different pathway from the way I arrived.

MATTER OVER MIND. I learned to manage the stardust in me. Next Sunday 8/22 at 9 am PST, I will share techniques we can learn from Ayurveda that promote resilience. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel right now.
