Dr. Robert Svoboda – Living with Reality – Ep. 42 – The Past and Future of Ayurvedic Medicine with Dr. Ramkumar Kutty

Dr. Svoboda sits down with Dr. Ramkumar Kutty for an eye-opening conversation about the past and future of Aryuvedic medicine.

“I think Ayurveda is something that we should enjoy, it should make us light. The moment we say restrictive, it is making us heavy. It means we are becoming obsessive about it.

And the same thing happens when people work with have organic food or exercise or asana practice. We can enjoy the process or we can become obsessive about it and thereby become very heavy and weighed down. ” – Dr. Ramkumar Kutty

In this conversation, Dr. Svoboda and Dr. Ramkumar Kutty discuss:
  • The state of Ayurvedic medicine and the practices that support it
  • Vaidyagrama and applying the principles of Ayurveda more broadly
  • Learning to be less rigid with our practice, not getting too heavy with rigid doctrines
