Ayurvedic Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling

with Bella Co-founder Ann Alesio

“We live in a world of polarities – for every positive charge there is a negative, for every feminine aspect there is a masculine, for every up there is a down. According to the same principle, every element has energy, and every energy has it’s own particular attributes, or vitality – enhancing qualities, as well as challenges, which can cause weakness or disease. With Ayurveda, we can strengthen the attributes and diminish the challenges of each element.”

Hello Friends,

This is one of my favorite and most accessible descriptions of Ayurveda I have found. Ayurveda is an an ancient system of natural healing that originated in India and subsequently inspired both Tibetan medicine, and Traditional Chinese medicine. The principles focus on balancing mind, body and spirit through nutrition and lifestyle.

I came to Ayurveda over ten years ago in need of healing. I suffered from endometriosis, fibroids, and painful heavy periods. After two surgeries with some short term relief, I was not getting to the root cause of my health issues . The western medical model is great for treating symptoms , but it falls short when it comes to a deeper healing. I connected with Cary Twomey of Midwest Dharma Wheel here in Lincoln, Nebraska. I was ready to make all of the changes she suggested- diet, lifestyle and an herbal regimen . I was skeptical at first and definitely not perfect at it, but then I slowly began to feel better. I was able to avoid further surgeries, made it through menopause with ease, and I am feeling more vitality than ever. Ayurveda shines when it comes to easing and even reversing chronic conditions.

Inspired by Cary and her wealth of knowledge , I became ever more curious about the principles of Ayurveda . In March of 2020 – the pandemic raging- I thought it would be a good time to take a deep dive into learning this ancient practice with a modern approach. I found two courses online through Ayurvedic Living School where I was able to connect with teachers and students from all over the country (one of the gifts of the pandemic) and completed internships in herbalism and lifestyle coaching. I am honored to say that I am now a certified Ayurvedic Practitioner/herbalist, and I have added these services to my aesthetic practice at Bella. It is so exciting to be able to offer my clients ways of healing from the inside out, to really thrive as they age. I have created some packages that are customizable for budget and time commitments. For more information and or a short consultation to see if this is right for you, contact me at 402-327-9726.

I am looking forward to assisting you,
