Healing Chronic Pain, Ayurvedic Medicine, and Eating for Your Body Type with Martha Gesegnet-Blessing – #029

Today’s guest is Martha Blessing, who is the founder of Niagara Ayurvedic Wellness and Healing Center, in Buffalo, NY.  Martha began her career as a nurse in traditional Western medicine, but then turned to a more holistic approach.  She became a 3rd generation metaphysical and spiritual leader and healer and has written the book titled 8 Steps to Naturally Heal Chronic Pain.  Martha holds certifications as a Healing Touch practitioner/instructor, a clinical ayurvedic practitioner, a nutritional specialist, and a Kripalu Holistic Health practitioner.  You can see that she has a wealth of information to share, so join us to learn more!

Martha faced many health challenges, including chronic pain, multiple surgeries, and confinement in a wheelchair.  Her diagnosis was “fibromyalgia,” which she views as a “garbage can diagnosis.”  When a patient experiences chronic, unexplainable pain, traditional doctors will diagnose it as fibromyalgia, and then prescribe medications to manage the symptoms.  An ayurvedic practitioner would find and treat the root cause of whatever imbalance in the body is causing the symptoms.

What is Ayurvedic medicine, and what does Martha have to tell us about it?

  • Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest form of medicine and healing known to man.  It dates back thousands of years, yet is still effective today.
  • Ayurvedic practitioners treat the CAUSE of the illness, while looking at the entire realm of physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional aspects of the patient.
  • Ayurvedic healing is based on three body types and the nutrition needed for balance in each one.
  • Ayurvedic medicine focuses on seasonal foods and living in harmony with nature.
  • Ayurvedic medicine includes yoga, meditation, and other ways to harness and manage the body’s energy.
  • Ayurvedic medicine can REVERSE illness.  Martha is living proof of this!
  • Ayurvedic medicine advocates detox to soften, loosen, and flush toxins from the body.

Are you intrigued?  Do you want to know more?  Martha has much to teach us about her approach to health and wellness.  Listen to our conversation to learn about these topics and more!
