Kimberly Snyder interviews Dr. Deepa Apte
ANTI-AGING, BLOATING, AMMA (TOXIN) INFO AND MORE FROM AN AYURVEDIC PERSPECTIVE
In London I was fortunate to spend time with a insightful, highly knowledgeable and beautiful Ayurvedic practitioner, named Dr. Deepa Apté who is an Indian medical doctor (Bachelor of Medicine; Bachelor of Surgery, India) and Ayurvedic practitioner.
I learned so much from Deepa. While there are some differences between Ayurvedic and Beauty Detox (such as in Beauty Detox we do not recommend consuming dairy across the board), there is a similar, highly compatible emphasis on digestion, preventing toxicity buildup, and belief that the buildup of toxins is a primary cause of aging and disease.
Dosha refers to the three main body types in Ayurveda (Vata, Pitta, Kapha, which we will discuss in detail in the below interview). I had always believed that I was a Vata-Pitta dosha, based on questionnaires I had done and basic knowledge. But Deepa read my pulse and did various diagnoses on me, and I learned that I am actually Tri-Doshic, so a balance of all 3 doshas (which is apparently very rare)!
Deepa has an AMAZING spa in London called Ayurveda Pura. If you are there or visiting London you should definitely make it down there. It has very traditional, healing Ayurvedic treatments, such as Shirodhara, the practice of pouring herb-infused oil for long periods over the third eye, which is grounding and balancing. A wide variety of facial and massage treatments are also offered, using skincare that is customized (and organic) for you, based on your body type (dosha).
She also carries great, organic teas, and you can book an appointment to get your pulse read by Deepa, as an evaluation of your body type. It is definitely a unique boutique spa,and I highly recommend going in there for some treatments.
Here is the transcription of an interview I conducted with Deepa (some words and sentences might be slightly worded differently, due to transcribing process). I think you’ll learn some very interesting things:
