VLP S2 10 Andrea Paige: Fasting as a Fast Track to Healing and Finding the Guru Within

Our guest today is Dr. Andrea Paige. Andrea is a naturopathic doctor, an iridologist, a colon hydrotherapist and a yoga teacher trainer. She is also dedicated to a life of cellular cleansing. Andrea is the former Director of the Detox program at Yoga Barn , the largest yoga studio in Asia and she uses nutritional therapy, colon cleansing and fasting as profound gateways to deeper healing. Andrea studied Evolutionary anthropology and holds a Masters of Science in Ethnobotany, a Doctorate in Naturopathy, and a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition with T. Colin Campbell at Cornell University. Andrea has a long list of certificates and trainings in her bio on her website so check that out to get the full scope of all the wisdom she’s carrying. It is vast! Andrea brings people to their own inner sense of aliveness through health, awakening, a sense of vitality, and consciousness. She is also here to raise the bar of what we consider in health to be the “norm”. “I want to bring people back to the guru inside”, she says. In her own words, she’s here to empower people to take their health back into their own hands and learn to live with maximum vitality, and to re-connect into our own inherent power, our birthright, either on the Yoga mat or through fasting/wellness programs. She leads retreats worldwide and teaches 200 and 500 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings as well as giving frequent public lectures and workshops. I interviewed Andrea at The International Yoga Festival in India where she was one of the speakers. We connected immediately , and she was my sole witness and lovingly held space for me for a hugely transformative moment during my trip to India, my dip in the River Ganga. I’ll never forget that moment really and it was really special to have her there holding space for me. In the interview Andrea goes deep on a lot of fascinating topics. She explains the power of Fasting, a Juice Fast vs Juice Feast , and her surprising take on what it was like living in Bali, where she ran the detox program at The Yoga Barn. She explains why not milk, shares her take on gluten, and is passionate about empowering people to listen to the the Guru Inside. You can hear lots of India in the background on this interview, and listening to it, it takes me back. Yogis and monkeys and Ganga oh my….   Andrea walks her talk and just one look at her makes you want to listen to anything she has to share. She is the poster child for vitality people. We had an absolute blast recording this interview and I hope you’ll be laughing right along with us!
