Ayurvedic medicine, the sister science of yoga, has helped us understand that we’re not all the same person. Different foods will not act the same in each one of us since we are not all the same.

One of the things that people say to me is “No, I didn’t have any trauma. I had a really good childhood.” I would like you to understand that everybody has had trauma; it just depends on where your bar is set.
