Oh… Apple Cider Vinegar…

Two years ago I found out I had kidney stones. Trying to find an alternative to a surgical procedure, I found that Apple Cider Vinegar is a great way to help dissolve kidney stones (something the western doctor I had seen at the time said was impossible). Well, after a few months of massive amounts of ACV every day, I dissolved the VERY large kidney stone in my left kidney down to a much more manageable size and passed it. But,, as the scans had shown, I still had two more smaller stones in my right kidney. So I’ve continued with a light regime of ACV since then.

I also use ACV for immune system support. Any time I notice a cold coming, I down some ACV and I wake up the next day feeling fine.

The stuff is awesome. It has all sorts of different uses. I’ve also recently been exploring new ways to cook with it, so I don’t just have to down nasty shots of it.

That being said… the reason I’m writing about ACV is for a different reason. I eat pretty well. I’m a healthy guy. Over the past two years I’ve noticed that when I catch my own odor, that it really has not been a pleasant smell. Strange to me because typically, even when “stinky” before, I never really minded my own smell. But recently… man. It’s come to a peak here since moving back to the states and I would notice that while teaching and practicing yoga that I STUNK in a way that I did not like. It wasn’t a normal stink. Like I said, normally, I don’t mind my stink, even when it’s stinky… But PHEW, this recent stink has smelled awful to me!

So I started to wonder what was causing it… it didn’t take to long to point towards ACV. Even the first day not drinking ACV I could notice a difference. Now, having taken five days off from taking it I notice a HUGE difference. The stuff was literally coming out of my pores before because I was drinking it so much!

I’m curious what other people’s experience is with this stuff and if anyone has noticed anything similar.

I still plan on drinking it when I get sick, and any time I get kidney stone pain, I’ll drink it for relief, but I think the days of me drinking it every day may have come to and end :\

Hello Everyone!


I’m excited to finally have this page up and running. Getting the site up has definitely been an interesting journey. I kept pushing back the date of the site launch as I was trying to add more and more to the site, but I finally decided that I wanted the site up and that I can just continue to add content as time moves along. Rome wasn’t build in a day, neither is a website. At the very least, you can check in for my most up to date schedule of classes and workshops, find out more about yoga therapy and private lessons, and join my mailing list . The added content of my blog, video resources, articles, and online courses will continue to grow in the coming months. The mailing list is just another way to stay connected. I won’t spam you, and I won’t give away your email address. About once a month you might get an email though, letting you know what I’m up to! Also feel free to contact me any time at ashton@virajati.com. I’d love to hear what YOU’RE up to!


Thank you for checking out my site, and I hope you will return regularly to see what fun interesting things are in the works for the future!
