Dr. Taz BhatiaDr. Taz Bhatia, MD, is a board-certified physician, specializing in integrative and emergency medicine, pediatrics and prevention, with expertise in women’s health, weight-loss and nutrition. She is the author of What Doctors Eat and The 21-Day Belly Fix.

Personal health challenges in her 20s combined with a broken health care system motivated Dr. Taz to pursue an alternative definition of health and healthy living. Early in her medical practice, as a young resident, Dr. Taz began searching for answers to her own health issues. Studying various systems of medicine, she found a wealth of information not yet taught in conventional medical schools. It led her to opening her now nationally recognized practice, CentreSpringMD (formerly Atlanta Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine). Dr. Taz and her team work to find a patient’s core health problems, their centre, in order to spring them forth in health, pulling from multiple systems of medicine, including integrative, functional and holistic medicine.

Healing through Ayurvedic Medicine
Ayurvedic medicine dates back 5,000 years in India and can easily be integrated into your health care.

Ayurveda views everyone as one of three body types or doshas. These predominant types determine what you should eat and natural medicines that work for you. Finding out your type is a good place to start with Ayurveda.

As a step into Ayurveda, you might want to explore how food can heal. Speak with a knowledgeable practitioner before trying herbal remedies. Some herbal combinations are not right for young children, expectant mothers and those with immune system disorders.

Meditation is also part of Ayurveda. This can be practiced by anyone. Meditation can be a huge leap when you're used to being busy. Start small and try to still your mind for 30 seconds and increase from there.

Listen in as Dr. Taz Bhatia joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share the benefits of Ayurvedic medicine.
