Podcasts, You Are What You Digest

You Are What You Digest



After several months of collaborating with the founding President of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine, renowned Ayurveda/Jyotish educator, and a dear friend Mamta Landerman CAS, it is with great pleasure and excitement to share Chit.Chaat.Chai’s first podcast series! You Are What You Digest, In Conversation with Mamta Landerman CAS. A 3-episode podcast all about digestion through the lens of Ayurveda.

Mamta and I developed this series to share a holistic perspective on digestion that extends beyond the gut. Each episode is dedicated to one of the three realms: physical, emotional and mental (digestion is more than just elimination!). Using stories and analogies in each episode, we talk through each level step by step for easy digestion. As the series progresses, we discuss how all three are interconnected and work synergistically. We hope this episodic journey provides you with insight on how Ayurveda approaches digestion and supports your path to healthy digestion.

All three 30 minutes episodes are now available on iTunesSoundcloud or click on each episode to stream from the web. I will also be releasing a couple exciting interviews with women who have helped pioneer Ayurveda here in California (including Mamta!). To receive episodes as they are released, subscribe to Chit.Chaat.Chai’s podcast channel and get them in your feed! Thank you for your support.
