In this episode I speak with my friend Apar Avinash Saoji, Ph.D., a Yoga and Naturopathy consultant in India, also holding a PhD in Philosophy (Yoga) with multiple peer reviewed research studies under his belt. We met several years ago at the International Congress on Naturopathic Medicine World Conference (http://icnmnaturopathy.eu/en/) in Barcelona, and at the time he allowed me to pick his brain (I obviously love asking questions!) about how Naturopathic Medicine is practiced in India which is what we cover in this episode. Dr. Saoji also shares with us the philosophy he teaches to his students, the way Naturopathy and Yoga are practiced clinically, some of the research underway with Yoga, as well as some of the opportunities being made for Naturopathy in India. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did!
