Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Trouble falling or staying asleep? Ayurveda can help! Dr. John Douillard speaks with Waylon about Vata & Pitta disturbances that prevent individuals from a good night's rest. Ayurveda points to a Vata imbalance if there is difficulty falling asleep due to restless monkey mind, overexcitment or exhaustion. Individuals who wake up throughout the night are more prone to a Pitta imbalance and may experience emotional or hormonal upset or excess heat due to metablolic disturbances. Ayurveda offers several suggestions for balancing Vata and Pitta including lifestyle and nutrition modifications. Dr. Douillard discusses some of these suggestions to provide individuals with adequate energy to properly prepare the body and mind for bed. Sweet Dreams ;) Namaste

Editor's Note: Athletes are targeted from major companies on what to eat, drink and supplement these days. It's no wonder that runners, athletes and die hard gym rats are extremely confused. Studies have shown in the past that sugar water can re-energize the body after a long, hard work-out. But will raisins beat out candy coated sport gels for energy and endurance? Raisins continue to be a healthy snack powered with nutrients and antioxidants and quite cost effective.
