Dr. Priya Walia was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest.
She completed her undergraduate studies in Human Biology and Health Psychology from Bastyr University where she further understood the mind-body-spirit connection. Her thirst for holistic healing and health promotion led her to naturopathy, where she attained her accredited doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University.
She further followed her passion for connecting to her roots in East Asian Medicine, Ayurveda, and pursued an accredited Master’s in Ayurvedic Sciences, also at Bastyr University, becoming a graduate of the very first inaugural class. Through this, she extensively studied in India while then completed a residency position that allowed her to enhance her knowledge and practical skill set in Naturopathic Medicine and Ayurveda.
She combines the 5,000 + year old wisdom of Ayurveda, Naturopathic Medicine, and other physical medicine modalities such as yoga and breathing techniques, IV therapies, craniosacral therapy and kinesiotaping to help her patients attain and maintain the health that they are rightfully due.
Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential.
Ayurveda is a personalized approach to health, and knowing your mind-body type allows you to make optimal choices about diet, exercise, supplements, and all other aspects of your lifestyle. You can learn more about Ayurvedic mind-body types and find out how to identify your own individual type.
The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are
- the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and
- nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind.
Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. From Deepak Chopra, MD
