Milpitas, CA, October 6, 2022— Ayurveda, the “science of life” is a 5,000-year-old practice originating in the modern subcontinent of India. The practice of Ayurveda is both an oral tradition and a well-documented science, with roots texts still utilized by modern-day scholars. As such an old and vast tradition, Ayurveda needs modern-day bridge builders to help translate and apply its wisdom for current generations. 

Kerala Ayurveda is one of the largest Ayurvedic companies in the U.S. with deep roots in India, spanning academies, award-winning retreat centers, research and products. Kerala Ayurveda USA’s CEO, Vaidya. Jayarajan Kodikannath, and Academy alumnus Alyson Young Gregory are building bridges for modern-day families with The Parent’s Complete Guide to Ayurveda: Principles, Practices, and Recipes for Happy, Healthy Kids released in August 2022. Now caregivers from all walks of life can learn the tried and true methods of holistic living for mind-body-spirit balance.

Ayurveda is for everyone, and The Parent’s Guide breaks down the vast science of life into bite-size, relatable nuggets. Caregivers can learn how to adapt daily routines to address common issues like eating well-balanced meals, seasonal allergies and managing screen time through this Ayurveda book.

Vaidya. Jayarajan (BSc, BAMS) drew upon more than 25 years practicing Ayurvedic practice in India and the U.S., as well as personal experience as a father in co-authoring The Parent’s Guide. He descends from a lineage of Ayurvedic healers and is an international educator and program director through Kerala Ayurveda’s academies. Says one of his students, “What makes [Vaidya. Jayarajan] an especially effective teacher is that he takes great effort to bridge the obvious cultural divide that exists between India and North America. It’s tough, but he does it with ease!”

Alyson Young Gregory is an Ayurvedic Counselor, mother and parenting media writer. When asked what is her favorite takeaway from Ayurveda, she comments, “Something I love to share with parents is that Ayurveda invites you to jump on board wherever you are. As you become familiar with the basic principles of Ayurveda, you will find it is very intuitive—just like parenting.” The Parent’s Guide empowers parents to tune into their natural rhythms and instincts. “My absolute, most favorite aspect of Ayurveda?” she continues, “Something is always better than nothing. Anything you do, no matter how small, to promote your child’s health and well-being will make a difference in their lives and they are lucky to have you as their parent!”
