Ayurveda for Weight Loss and Longevity with Sharon Niemi

Losing weight isn’t always as straight forward as conventional medicine leads us to believe.  It’s a highly individualized process.  Using Ayurveda for weight loss takes into account your individual body types for a more individualized approach.  In this episode we will speak with Sharon Niemi on Ayurveda for weight loss and Longevity.  
Sharon Niemi spent 43 years in Quality Engineering when her health took a nosedive. Regular western medicine told her it was just normal aging, but that didn’t feel right with her. This began her journey into healing with Ayurveda. For 15 years she used the practices she was taught, and gave advice to friends, family, and referrals. Three years ago she finally left the corporate world and founded Your Way Wellness, a company focused on health and healing using Ayurveda.
