2) How do I know this is for me?
If you are not sure the SVA detox is for you, you can schedule a “discovery call” where you get to ask any/all questions you may have to an expert SVA educator. These educators are also experienced detoxers: they have been using the SVA protocols for detox and rejuvenation for decades and can share their personal and professional experiences and details and address any concerns you may have or clarifications you may need so you can take your decision in full confidence.

Thank you for the article below! I would like to share a testimonial for ALA & Dr. Teitelbaum.
I had a phone consult with her several months ago and she recommended the ALA lotion on neck and face for hormonal headaches. I have had breast tenderness and soreness for many years during my monthly cycle as well. A few years ago I found a lump in my breast although it is not cancerous. 
Over a month ago, I decided to start massaging my breasts with the ALA lotion 1-2 times per day. I’ve had almost no breast soreness for several months now!! Two cycles now with no breast pain and no headaches. I’m absolutely amazed as this has been happening for years! The ALA lotion and soma cal tabs are the only new herbs I’ve added to my repertoire. 
So grateful for Vaidya, Dr Teitelbaum and these amazing formulas. ️️️

The Amazing Health Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid
~ Dr. Marianne Teitelbaum
You’re probably thinking why would an Ayurvedic physician write in an Ayurvedic newsletter about alpha lipoic acid, especially when everyone else is writing about the health benefits of the typical Ayurvedic herbs, such as Brahmi, Ashwagandha, and numerous others. We should be extolling the virtues of Ayurvedic detox and the wonders of panchakarma. Or perhaps the importance of Dinacharya in balancing the three doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
But Alpha Lipoic Acid? Was this mentioned in the ancient texts some may ask? Perhaps not, but those ancient doctors were wise enough to recognize that the future will bring new cultural and envinronmental conditions that would necessitate new remedies they could not anticipate in their lifetimes. So they acknolwedged that the ideal physicians of the future would be those who would introduce new remedies based on and without swerving from the ancient foundational recommendations and guidelines. The physicians of the future would modernize Ayurveda without compromizing Ayurveda.
And that is just what Vaidya Mishra, genius that he was, did! He was able to adhere to the strict standards of the ancient texts while adapting those principles to what was needed in the physiology of the modern patient.
So let’s look at why Vaidya was enthralled with the health benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and why he wanted to make it available to all of his doctors and patients. 
Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is found in many foods and is made in our bodies as well. If you recall, antioxidants quench free radicals, or compounds that form from toxins as they enter our bodies wreaking havoc causing numerous diseases. Luckily the antioxidants come to the rescue breaking down the free radicals, before they can harm us. 
Vitamin C and Vitamin E are antioxidants and ALA can actually recycle them once they are used up, breathing new life into them, so they can continue clearing the body of the deadly free radicals. It can even recycle glutathione (our body’s antioxidant) and Coenzyme Q10. 
Some studies have suggested that ALA may enhance the body’s ability to use its own insulin to lower blood sugar in people with Type 2 diabetes. It has been used for years in Europe in treating certain types of nerve damage, especially in the neuropathy or nerve damage that can result from diabetes.

Since it is both fat and water soluble it can cross the blood-brain barrier and is one of the only supplements to do so. Because of this, it is used to treat numerous brain disorders, such as autism, ADHD, MS, Parkinson’s, dementia, Alzheimer’s and brain tumors.
It is THE best remedy for glaucoma and high intraocular pressure. In fact, this is one of the main reasons Vaidya developed this remedy. He had spoken to one of the countries best ophthalmologists in Beverly Hills and asked him what he considered to be a good natural remedy for reducing eye pressure. The eye doctor told him ALA was by far the best remedy for this problem. 
ALA has been used by holistic doctors here in the States for many years now, but most of these physicians are using the synthetic version. As you know, Ayurveda prides itself on using nutrients which are based in nature, grown in the fields, absorbing the vital life essence of the cosmic vibration, or pranic energy, from the sun and the moon. In fact, all the Ayurvedic herbs are processed so as to carefully keep this delicate life force intact. 
We discourage our patients from taking synthetic nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals, which are made in a lab and devoid of this health-promoting life energy. This is why these remedies, which while they may have an effect, will also be riddled with side effects and toxicity to the liver and kidneys as these unintelligent nutrients create confusion within our cells. This is because the pranic vibration of nature gives our cellular system the intelligence to do all their important functions. These synthetic “dumb and dead” versions of the real nutrients found in herbs, food and spices cause the numerous side effects we experience when taking them.
Vaidya was very careful when he decided he wanted to make ALA — he found suppliers who made it from spinach and broccoli, the two foods containing the highest amounts of ALA. We are so lucky to have this version of ALA as the research now shows that the ALA made from food is 10 times more potent than its synthetic cousin. 
First he developed the ALA lotion to be used around the eyes, on the forehead, the eyebrows, temples (the locations of the eye’s marma points) and under the skull where the neck begins (the location of the brain’s marma points). Both the lotion or the ALA cream can be applied down the entire spine, on the wrists and the soles of the feet, which represent all the areas which would affect our nervous system. We have reduced intraocular eye pressure in many patients by the use of the ALA lotion over the past several years since Vaidya first released it.
We also use it in the autistic children and just about any other brain/nerve problem we see, as mentioned previously.
I recommend ALA oil to our patients and instruct them on how to do abhyanga, or oil massage, 2-3 times a week with this outstanding oil. Apply the oil over the whole body, leave it on 20 minutes, then wash it off. You may also leave it on if you prefer. If you are sensitive enough, you can feel the cells enlivening, almost as if they become energized with the increased production of antioxidants the ALA is promoting throughout the entire physiology.
I encourage you to try one of these products and see if your health benefits — even if you don’t have any of these health problems — it is always good to stay ahead of the curve and prevent disease from happening in the first place. ALA definitely can do that for you as it increases the levels of all of your body’s antioxidants — vitamin C, E, glutathione and CoEnzyme Q10.
Vaidya Mishra went above and beyond the standard and current Ayurvedic treatments, always interested in applying the latest research to the knowledge buried deep within the ancient texts.
And we are the beneficiaries of his groundbreaking technologies.
