Another Ayurveda expert invited to participate in the show was Candace Badgett, owner of The Raj, an authentic award-winning Ayurvedic health spa located in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa.
Candace discussed traditional Ayurvedic approaches to losing weight by demonstrating certain procedures on selected audience members, including Dr. Oz. These treatments are known to improve digestion, remove toxins, nourish the tissues, and reduce stress, which disrupts normal bodily functions causing weight gain. Here are pictures of Amy, Katy, and Dr. Oz receiving Udvartana, Swedana, and Shirodhara, respectively.
Candace explains that a Vata imbalance is almost always at the root of excess weight. She recommended mixing chickpea flour with herbalized Vata oil to the consistency of peanut butter and applying it as a friction massage, which heats the tissues and removes the appearance of cellulite.
Candace and Dr. Oz discuss the recipe for Udvartana as Amy receives the treatment.
Dr. Oz looks at Katy as Candace explains the value of Swedana, usually taken after abhyanga, an oil massage. The steam allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the tissues, helping to remove the toxins that disrupt hormones, impede proper communication between cells in the body, and are usually responsible for weight gain. “The removal of toxins,” Candace emphasized, “is absolutely crucial to a successful weight-loss program!”
“The removal of toxins is absolutely crucial to a successful weight-loss program.”
Candace Badgett describes Shirodhara as a stream of herbalized warm oil rhythmically poured back and forth across the forehead. This treatment deeply relaxes the mind and body powerfully removing stress and fatigue. It also enlivens the happiness hormones. Dr. Oz was pleasantly surprised and said it was “such a spectacular feeling having the oil rushing up your scalp…it is a very soothing experience…it is a life-changing experience. I recommend any of you who have the ability to try this out at least once. This is so cool as it goes back and forth.”
Dr. Oz describes Shirodhara as a “life-changing experience.”
Continuing to lay on the table Dr. Oz began to close out that segment of the show. He thanked Candace for all her advice. “I really appreciate it. Wonderful job.” He said, “Be right back, everybody,” then told the Ayurvedic technician to, “Keep going, it feels good.”
