Carlsbad, California––March 31, 2008––In this age of unprecedented change and uncertainty, millions of Americans are suffering from stress, anxiety, and chronic pain. This emotional turbulence exacts an enormous toll on both mental and physical health, and many are looking for ways to restore balance and well-being into their lives. To address this need, the Chopra Center for Wellbeing has designed a new signature wellness product – Ayurvedic Dosha Balancing Kits – with specific healing tools for your unique mind-body type.

The Chopra Center’s Ayurvedic Dosha Balancing Kits are based on the Ayurvedic principles discovered by the sages of India more than 5,000 years ago – and now supported by the evidence of modern Western science: the healing power of the five senses.

The ancient Ayurvedic sages knew that the sounds, sensations, sights, tastes, and smells that we take in play a key role in our emotional and physical well-being. If we want to feel balanced, joyful, and rested, we need to feed our senses with nourishing experiences rather than toxic ones. The Ayurvedic Kits contain a special assortment of the Chopra Center’s premium scented candles, organic teas, sandalwood incense, pure Ayurvedic massage oil, essential aromatherapy, Surya Spice Blends, and best-selling books by the Chopra Center’s co-founders, Deepak Chopra, M.D. and David Simon, M.D.

“Nurturing the senses awakens our natural healing ability,” said Dr. Simon. 
“Just as our body’s tissues are made from the food we eat, our mind is created from the input we receive through our five senses. In fact, the quality of our thoughts, emotional health, and well-being is determined by the experiences we take in through our eyes, ears, nose, taste buds, and skin.”

The Chopra Center has customized the Ayurvedic Dosha Balancing Kits for each of the three major Ayurvedic mind-body types (known as doshas). The Vata Dosha Balancing Kits focuses on calming and grounding those who tend to suffer from anxiety, insomnia, and digestive problems.  For individuals prone to irritation, ulcers, hypertension, and inflammatory conditions, the Pitta Dosha Balancing Kits offer soothing support for the senses.  Finally, the Kapha Dosha Balancing Kits are designed to invigorate those whose imbalance manifests as excess weight, lethargy, and a tendency to get stuck in old thoughts or behaviors.
