Sports Illustrated Interviews Heather About Ashwagandha

I have some exciting news to share with you! I was recently featured in Sports Illustrated! No, it was not a pic of me in a swimsuit. Rather, I was quoted in an article about the Ayurvedic herb ashwagandha.

Ashwagandha is a bit of a wonder herb lately, as it’s part of the pantheon of herbs that people refer to as adaptogens, which by the way, I think is a completely misleading term, but I’ll save my rant on that for another day. Ashwagandha can be a really powerful herb for the right person. I mean, come on, it translates to “smells like a horse”!

Ayurveda, with its holistic approach to health and wellness, has been gaining recognition globally, and being highlighted in a renowned publication like Sports Illustrated is a testament to the growing appreciation for traditional healing practices. The article delves into some of the benefits of ashwagandha, shedding light on Ayurveda's unique contributions to overall well-being. The article points to a bunch of supplements you can buy too, which the SI writer tried out, but my personal favorite is not included in the article, so here you go.

I invite you to read the article to gain insights into how Ayurvedic herbs like ashwagandha are making waves in mainstream wellness discussions. I’m thrilled to be quoted, but even more, I feel that a mention like this serves as a proud moment for the entire community of Ayurveda supporters globally. In the United States, board-certified Ayurvedic Practitioners are trained extensively on how to help people use herbs like ashwagandha, and the profession is credentialed by the National Ayurvedic Medical Association Certification Board.

Your continued support has been instrumental in my journey to help more people get healthier with Ayurveda, and I am immensely grateful for it. There’s a growing number of studies popping up about Ayurvedic medicines and therapies every day in biomedical research, and I believe that recognition like this in popular media reflects the general public’s growing desire to reconnect with nature as medicine.

If you have any questions about the article, please feel free to reach out. I value your feedback and look forward to continuing this journey with you.
