There are many digestive symptoms that are deeply related to emotional states, and Ayurveda considers digestion to be the physical origin of health or disease.
This course begins by exploring four major categories of digestive issues:
ulcerative and inflammatory diseases
cancerous and benign growths
Whether or not you suffer from any of these specific conditions, you’ll learn how to develop the emotional awareness to help heal your own body as well.
Dr. Siva will take you through an exploration of both the physical and emotional causes for these conditions, and show:
some real-life client case studies that will inspire you,
Western and Ayurvedic explanations for each disease,
psychospiritual patterns to become aware of and address,
Ayurvedic healing methods that support the emotional body,
And specific breathing practices (pranayama) that immediately balance the channels of the mind and emotions.
This approach allows us to reach the emotional roots of the issue from an indirect and powerful angle.

Siva began her path to healing in neuroscience, and this sparked her interest in the mind-body connection. In Medical School and during her Public Health Masters, she focused her studies on an extension of the mind-body relationship: the effects of community, development, and culture on health behavior.
For Dr. Mohan, consulting in international public health seemed to revolve around a central question: How do we encourage certain health behavior in different settings around the world?
Several years later, Siva shares the wisdom of Ayurveda in a supportive, individualized and holistic way.
With an M.D. (focus in psychiatry) and a Master's in Public Health, Siva brings a unique and integrative approach to Ayurveda.
This combined with her personal and professional studies in Vedic thought have nurtured her niche: expanding Ayurveda with psychospiritual healing.
Siva teaches at festivals and conferences (e.g. Bhaktifest, Bali Spirit, Moksha, Assn. of Ayurvedic Physicians); develops curriculum and teaches for YogaWorks; and teaches at the nation’s premier Yoga Studies Masters Program at Loyola Marymount University in LA. Siva is the founder/director of LA’s celebration of the Vedic arts, Veda MeLA.
Dr. Mohan’s perspectives have been recently featured in Marie Claire, Well + Good, LAYoga, Real Simple, First for Women magazines, amongst others. Her private practice has been featured on KCLA TV, Veria TV, and she is a featured expert on several online wellness portals (LivingHealthy, BanyanBotanicals, Curejoy, Ayurvedanextdoor, Mom.me, Bodhi Tree).
Dr. Siva on The Prevalence of Digestive Disorders:
“60-70 million people in the United States alone are suffering from chronic digestive issues, and these are figures from 2010. If we look at the entire adult population of the United States, we’re talking 30%.
So that means 1 in 3 people.
Prevalence and incidence data is often outdated, and we’re almost a decade beyond these statistics. What I’m seeing in my practice, and in my community, is more like 1 in 2 people.
That’s astounding. Half of all the people that I talk to have symptoms that their digestive system is not happy. The data looks very similar in Europe, Japan, and all modernized urbanized locales in the world.”

What others have said after working with Dr. Siva Mohan:
“Working with Siva has been an amazing healing experience.
I’ve spent 5 years trying to regain my health. This year with Siva has resulted in a huge improvement to my digestive system and overall feeling of well-being. I’m off all prescription medications and sleeping like a baby.
Siva has tremendous insight into emotional and spiritual issues. Even though we are only working by phone twice a month, it feels like she knows me and my family dynamics very intimately. I’m very excited to continue my work with Siva and living more ayurvedic!”
“I have been working with Siva for 3 months, and my heart is opening up!
In that short time I have unlocked a lifetime of useless should’s and false beliefs that don’t serve me. My digestive system is already working much better as well, which somehow seems to help me digest my emotions.
Siva is the light in the tunnel that is guiding me to my space in the Sun again. I trust Siva. She is a gift I give myself. I still see my various doctors too however I am confident that I will soon not need as many band aids. I’m healing from the inside!! Much gratitude to Siva’s parents.”
