I had never done a show about AYURVEDA, a 5,000 year old “Science of Life” movement, originated in India. Then I heard about Elaine Doll, CAS, PKS, LMT, founder of Blissful Ayurveda in Bozeman. Elaine was a wonderful guest, who has been studying and living Ayurveda since 2004: and who has been in private practice in Bozeman for 10 years. The way the program went, it opens the door wide for another show on this interesting topic.
