ABOUT THE BOOK

CHANGE YOUR SCHEDULE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Does it sound like magic? Its not. We’ve all heard of circadian rhythms —those biological processes that give us jet lag and make us night owls Or early birds. But few of us know just how profoundly these diurnal patterns affect our overall health.

Bad habits like skipping meals. squeezing in workouts when its convenient. working late into the night to maximize productivity and then trying to ‘catch up’ on sleep during the weekend disrupt our natural cycles. A growing body of research on chronobiology reveals just how sensitive the human body is to these rhythms all the way down to the genetic level. Our ‘clock genes’ control more than we realize and small changes can make the difference between battling our bodies and effortlessly managing weight, sleep, stress, inflammation and more.

“Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar’s holistic plan gives you the tools—and the schedule—you need to transform your life for good.”

Blending ancient Ayurvedic wisdom with cutting edge science, Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life is the eye-opening empowering handbook you need to effortlessly lose weight, sleep better, exercise stronger, reduce stress and optimize your routine. Complete with diagnostic quizzes to determine your specific body type. Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar’s holistic plan gives you the tools—and the schedule—you need to transform your life for good.

How Your Body Tells Time

YOUR BODY ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT TIME IT IS, EVEN IF YOU DON’T

“Many body tissues have their own timetables organized by cyclic oscillations in the expression of a network of numerous ‘clock genes.’ “The entire body is a clock,” says Derh-Jan director of the Surrey Sleep Research Centre in Guildford. UK. “It’s a house with clocks in every room and every corner. yet in one way or another they work in an organized way.” The timing of all these various ‘peripheral oscillators’ can profoundly affect metabolic activity immune cell proliferation and numerous other critical functions. But there is a central pacemaker that gives the body a sense of the time of day: the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), a group of neurons in the hypothalamus.”

—Chronobiology: Stepping out of time by Michael Eisenstein, Nature International Weekly Journal of Science

“Every animal and plant on the planet— even certain bacteria—has evolved with… cellular oscillations. They dictate hundreds of other crucial processes, turning energy on and off in 24-hour cycles. They orchestrate our daily peak rhythms for things like cognition. fat synthesis. and even hair growth.These internal clocks. which biologists are just starting to research and understand in detail. are constantly syncing based on the food we eat. our exercise routines, social interactions, and light patterns. And whether we know it or not, we’re constantly working against them.”

Excerpt

FROM FOREWORD BY DR. DEEPAK CHOPRA

“Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar stands on the cusp of the next wave, prescribing not only a course of medicine and preventative care. but a schedule to help his patients transform their lives. Ultimately, he is working to link self-awareness with self-care. Once you understand that your body is a part of nature, one that responds to the rising sun and changing in seasons, you can make choices about when to eat and when to unplug and prepare for sleep that will better support your health.

One eye-opening aspect of Dr. Kshiragar’s book is to show us how understanding your body type as chrono type can offer solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems. Some body types are more prone to weight gain or insomnia, some are less prone to these problems. This book explains why a certain diet won’t work for everyone. There is no one-size-fits-all exercise routine or sleep routine or mindfulness practice. In this book you have the chance to discover your own body type and your own healthy practices to support your body.

Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life is a title that blends the wisdom of Ayurveda (the original lifestyle medicine) with cutting edge research on the body’s physiology. This is one of the most exciting promises of this book, that we can become conscious of our bodies’ inner workings. As every page of this book illustrates, quantum biology is opportunity.

I can’t think of a more qualified person to introduce you to these concepts. Dr Suhas is a classically-trained Ayurvedic physician, and he is a frequent and popular speaker at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing. He travels the world to teach courses in Ayurveda to healthcare professionals while treating thousands of patients at his own clinic. He has seen firsthand how these principles work and they do work to reduce everything from weight gain to total body inflammation. They don’t just help you sleep better, but also reduce headaches, congestion and snoring while improving your focus during the day. By following the body’s seasonal rhythms you can reduce the winter blues and protect yourself against illnesses. By understanding the body’s seasons, you can age with grace, power and wisdom.”
